Risa James Events | Sacramento Wedding Planner
Picture your wedding day…do you want to be relaxed, sipping Champagne while enjoying time with your friends and family while someone else does all the work? Or do you want to be frazzled from answering a million questions, trying to figure out where the cake table is going to go, and constantly checking your phone to make sure you’re still on time?
It’s probably option A! Your wedding day is a once-in-a-lifetime event, and you deserve the best. A wedding planner takes the stress off of you and your family so that everyone gets to enjoy the day.
At Risa James Events, I help engaged couples design, plan, and execute their ideal wedding, whether it’s an intimate outdoor gathering for 10 or a grand ballroom affair for 300. I promise transparency, responsiveness, and professionalism every step along the way. I value honesty and integrity, both in my clients and in myself. Above all, I want the couple to look back on their wedding and say, “We couldn’t imagine a better wedding day and we couldn’t have done it without you!”
As a former lawyer, Risa brings a unique perspective to wedding planning. She can help you with contract reviews and is always looking to minimize risk and liability. When you hire Risa James Events, you work directly with Risa throughout the process, and she will be your hands-on planner on your wedding day. Your wedding won’t be passed off to an associate planner or assistant. We book only one wedding per weekend, to ensure that you get the personalized service you deserve.
