Are you engaged and don't know where to start with planning your wedding? Maybe you have lots of ideas and need help connecting with the best vendors Northern California has to offer. Do you find yourself short on time and just want someone else to take over all the details already? You are in the right place!

Welcome to Risa James Events, your Sacramento-area wedding planner. We are super-organized, very detail-oriented, and love working with clients to plan their perfect wedding! We have experience with weddings small (under 75 guests) and large (350+ guests). We do every type of wedding from formal church weddings to casual winery weddings.
