serving engaged couples -
just like you!
We pride ourselves on our depth of experience in design and the ability to seamlessly provide a variety of services - including creative direction, logistical management, decor sourcing, vendor curation, destination scouting, and more!
We are a team that creates experiences which are both beautiful and purposeful. Whether you're in need of someone to take full reigns or you’re looking for guidance to hone your signature style; we can bring your vision to fruition.
We tend to work outside of the box and believe that a wedding can and should be a chic and romantic reflection of the couple and not just a play by the rules, cookie-cutter event. Our events always reflect our clients’ personalities and styles!
As a design-savvy community enthusiast, I grew up gathering family and friends around sensationally-set tables.
Following the rapid success of Union Event Co. and high demand for professional, passionate, and experienced wedding planners, I assembled a team of compulsive list-makers and crafters in 2015 and we began producing weddings and events throughout Hood River, Pacific Northwest and beyond.
My team at Union Event Co and I help you make informed decisions, keep track of the hundreds of details, attend vendor consultations with you, and then pull everything together into a perfectly coordinated wedding day because you deserve to enjoy your day eating, drinking, and dancing - leaving the logistics to us.
"Stephanie and Union Event Co. are amazing. Not only are they kind and professional, but they are so organized and into your vision for your wedding. Working with Union is honestly the least stressful part of my wedding. I 100% recommend them to everyone that wants a company that is on their game, knows how to make a beautiful event, and takes all the worry and stress away. They really make your day your dream come true."
"I can't imagine what would have happened if we hadn't hired Stephanie and her team to coordinate our wedding. They handled every aspect with such professionalism and made the wedding day so much more relaxing for us; we truly didn't have to worry about anything in their capable hands. I can't stress enough how necessary Union Event Co. was to our wedding- I am so glad we hired them and would do it again in a heartbeat. For the amount of work they put it, their prices are very reasonable as well. If you are considering them for your wedding or event, just do it! You will not regret it."
"We worked with Stephanie as our day-of coordinator, and it was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding day. I can't even imagine how much Stephanie would kill it if you gave her the reigns on your whole event or wedding. Seriously, an amazingly professional person who really knows her stuff, and is a delight to work with to boot. We got some many compliments regarding her take charge with a positive can do attitude on the day. Would not hesitate to recommend her and her outfit for any event, In fact, I have already!"
"With a growing list of projects, costs, and uncountable unforeseen tasks involved in the planning of a wedding, it was super important for us to work with like-minded professionals who wanted to get to know us and our vision. Working within a somewhat tight budget, we were not sure a day-of wedding coordinator was possible, but now realize it should have been the top priority. We were extremely happy with our day, but we could not have done it without Stephanie."
"Of all the decisions my wife-to-be and I made leading up to our wedding, booking Stephanie at Union Event Co to handle our day of coordination was by far our smartest. Stephanie made our wedding day run as smooth as could be and was an amazing outlet to handle the myriad little things that came up throughout the day. Stop wasting another moment hemming and hawing about whether this is a good idea or worth the cost. It is and it is."
When I began my career in event planning more than 10 years ago, clients recognized my approachability and attention to detail. Ensuring you are taken care of and that your needs and expectations are met is something I still take very seriously and I pride myself in working with our couples to make sure that both your wedding planning process and your wedding day are an incredible, memorable experience.
As a wedding planner, there are so many reasons to smile - and Stephanie loves to smile. Who couldn't while surrounded by beautiful details?!
In her spare time, Stephanie loves spending time with her family, making trips to the flea market (dirty chai please!), and adding to her spiral notebook collection.
Stephanie is grateful to call both the Pacific Northwest and Baja Sur home with her wonderful husband Dustin and three fur babies - Gabby, Roxy and Diego.
