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!

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 and responsiveness every step along the way. I would rather over-communicate than under-communicate. 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!’
— Risa Weaver-Enion
