WHITNEY W. PERRY
Owner & Lead Designer
Whitney grew up playing make-believe on her family’s banana farm in Santa Barbara, California. Dress up and magical tea parties evolved into hiking local foothills and scavenging the beach for sea glass treasures. After high school, she headed north to Santa Clara University where she graduated with a Marketing Degree.
After graduating, Whitney found a way to combine her childhood passions and her academic training: event coordination. She started her career working at La Tavola Fine Linen Rental managing their San Francisco Showroom, meanwhile assisting several accomplished Event Planners onsite of their events on weekends. She fell instantly in love with all aspects of the event planning process and its industry in general. Her favorite part? Whit says, “after a decade of event planning, I’m always re-inspired and passionate about bringing my clients’ personalities and style into every aspect of their event.” From custom stenciled and hand-painted driftwood table numbers to vintage mineral stone and pheasant feather boutonnieres, Whitney makes each event personal, fresh, and original.
On a personal note, Whitney and her husband Tyler welcomed their first son, Wesley Ray, this past October 2018. They are loving parenthood, and their fur baby, Gage, has been the sweetest and most patient older brother. When not planning weddings, Whitney loves hiking, wine tasting, camping, and boat rides on the river in the Summertime!
Senior Event Producer
Stephani grew up in Southern Oregon where Friday nights were devoted to football games and summers were spent floating the gorgeous North Umpqua River. She pursued a Bachelor’s Degree in Education from Linfield College and just recently resigned from her “grown up” job teaching kindergarten she had for ten years in order to spend more time with her family and coordinate more events!
Stephani has always been teased for her love of itineraries and checklists. She fell in love with the event planning process during her own wedding in 2011. Since then, she has helped family, friends, and colleagues bring their events to reality. The best part, according to Stephani, is “seeing the client relax and truly take in the moments of their event!”
When Stephani is not working an event or substitute teaching, she is soaking up time with her husband, Adam, while chasing their two adventurous kiddos, Coen and Ayla, and fur baby- Augustus Barnaby.
Meghan grew up in Portland, Oregon and hasn't found a reason to leave unless it's for a girls trip to have some fun in the sun. She studied at University of Oregon and graduated with a degree in Public Relations and Communications.
Her drive to learn and make connections during college led her to an opportunity working with a Portland wedding coordination and design company, where her passion and desire to elevate the planning and execution experiences truly flourished. Her favorite part? Counting the smiles, tears, and embraces of happiness throughout the entire day, which just reassures it truly is the best day.
Meghan works in marketing and got married May 12, 2018 at Oregon Golf Club on the first 80 degree day of the year (lucky her!) Meghan and her husband, Scott, live in King City with their dog, Brooklyn. Alongside friends, they love wine tasting, all the time; watching football, in the fall; & enjoying the long days & nights, in the summer.
Beth has loved all things weddings for as long as she can remember. She studied at the University of Portland, earning a degree in Organization Communications and also works for a local non-profit planning their annual conference.
Beth loves the feeling of seeing an event come together. She has worked throughout the Portland wedding industry from rentals, to catering, and now planning.
When she isn’t working on events, you can find her teaching dance classes, trying out the newest brunch spot, or traveling to the next place on her bucket list.
Malia was born and raised in Portland, OR and loves all the wonderful things the area has to offer, including so many gorgeous event venues. Malia has been involved in many different aspects of event planning, and has cherished being able to be experience it from many different perspectives. Her favorite part of of an event is seeing all of the pieces fall into place and watching the client's dream day come to life, as well as the beautiful details that can be so meaningful.
She and her husband Michael got married in June of 2017 and planned a wedding that was a perfect blend of traditional and eclectic with a ceremony at St Patrick's Church and a reception at Castaway.
When not planning events, she works for a small, female owned wholesale manufacturing company and loves that both jobs allow her to work within a small team of amazing coworkers. Malia and Michael live in NE Portland and are always looking for her new favorite restaurant or hiking trail.
Lauren grew up in Portland playing “house” with her two younger sisters and organizing games of capture the flag with her neighbors. When she wasn’t running around with friends, she could be found picking weeds and watering plants at her grandparents’ garden center, and scrubbing the floorboards in the basement, per her mother’s persistent requests.
Lauren went to the University of Oregon where she graduated from the School of Business. Shortly after, she moved to San Francisco where she began working for Kelley O’Brien Events, a boutique event planning company that specializes in planning fundraisers for non-profits. In this role, Lauren dealt with world renown musicians, hall of famers and some of Silicon Valley’s most recognizable names.
After a few years in the Bay Area, Lauren moved back home to Portland. When she’s not busy planning events, she can be found traipsing around the city in search of good food, kayaking the Columbia River, or in her backyard fawning over her dog Indi. While she hasn’t played capture the flag with her neighbors in a while, she still spends time tending to her family’s plant nursery, and deep cleaning her house.
