Risa Weaver-Enion is a non-practicing attorney who thinks planning and orchestrating events is far more interesting and fun than drafting licensing agreements. She holds a Juris Doctor from Duke University School of Law and a Bachelor of Arts from Case Western Reserve University.

From the time she could talk, Risa has been telling people what to do, but in the nicest way possible! As a small girl she liked to organize and categorize the contents of her mother's kitchen cabinets. She founded Risa James Events to put to good use her exceptional organizational abilities and desire to help clients throw the perfect party.

Risa is also a wine connoisseur and former professional wine consultant. Her personal wine collection focuses on both Old and New World wines, with reds from Burgundy, California, and South America being the most abundant.

Risa lives in West Sacramento, CA with her husband.


Our Story

Risa James Events is based in Sacramento. We handle events throughout the metropolitan Sacramento area, and in Napa and Sonoma counties. We love working with clients to execute the vision they have for their special event.

It's stressful to host a wedding or other large event. The months leading up to the event are a flurry of details and decision-making. When the big day finally arrives, you really only want to have one job: have fun! That's where we come in. We worry about everything so you don't have to.

We are new to the Sacramento area, but in years past we have planned events in Washington, DC, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Please see our Vendors page for recommendations and contact information, and our Testimonials page for client reviews.
