So you’re thinking about hiring a coordinator?

Wedding and Special Event coordinators work with their clients to keep them organized, focused and budget conscious. The bride and groom will naturally become the coordinators of their own event if they opt not to hire a professional wedding coordinator. Coordinators are organized, resourceful, creative and above all, want their clients to have a beautiful event that they get to enjoy.

At Bash! Events we are looking out for your best interest; whether that be keeping you within your budget, brainstorming original ideas that are a reflection of you, finding vendors that complement your style, scouring for special decor items, negotiating contracts and hotel blocks, completing do-it-yourself projects and so much more! Every detail of your wedding will be carefully implemented to achieve the vision you have for your special day!

With over 10 years of event planning expirience, your next event is guaranteed to be a BASH! Read less

Jessica and her staff provided top-notch planning and support for my daughter and son-in-law's wedding. Though much of the planning was already in place when we hired her, Jessica's timely, clear and professional communications with the bride and groom, venue owner, caterer, musicians, florist, bartenders and so on made the evening flow flawlessly. We had been a little anxious since none of the providers had previously worked together but you'd never would have known. Jessica and her staff are great problem solvers and very, very fast on their feet. Short one bridesmaid bouquet? Not a problem! Within a very short period of time, they created a bouquet using other available flowers and ribbons. It felt as though Jessica and her assistance were quietly and unobtrusively everywhere throughout the event, providing oversight and support so that the evening unfolded seamlessly and easily. This grateful mom believes that Bash! played a crucial role in helping my daughter and son-in-law have, in their words, a perfect wedding.

Jessica helped us coordinate an amazing wedding! Ours was a traditional Hindu wedding (we are Gujarati) and it was perfect! We didn't lack anything despite being unfamiliar with the Indian scene and the wedding scene in Portland as we had just moved there. Jessica was terrific - always accessible, kind, offered to do anything we needed big or little, and really went above and beyond for us. She worked hard to get us all connected with the best vendors, Indian and non-Indian. She was worth every penny and then some. The decor she helped us create for our reception was so beautiful, she really made our wedding day the most beautiful and fun day for us! HIGHLY recommend Bash! and Jessica for your wedding day.

Jessica at Bask Events is absolutely amazing!!!! We could not have pulled off my daughters dream wedding without her. My daughter had lots of big idea's, and with Jessica's creativity and visions, the idea's became bigger and even more impressive. Our guests were "blown away" with the attention to details, and all of the special little things awaiting them through out the evening. Guests descriptions were "Stunning", "Spectacular", and "Unbelievable".

Jessica is one of the sweetest, giving and caring people that we worked. Her organization, enthusiasm, and attention to detail is undescribable. We are so thanklful that Jessica was on our team, we couldn't have done it without her. Would highly recommend Bash!!

When first planning my wedding I thought that I could do it alone. Boy was I wrong and in over my head! I was referred to Jessica at Bash! and she helped me to complete the vision I had for my wedding and make it come to life. I could not have done it without her and I cannot thank her enough!! She is so organized and easy to work with. I would recommend her to anyone planning a wedding or event over and over again!

At the beginning I debated about whether or not I needed a coordinator or not. After looking at my schedule, thinking about the fact that I didn’t want set up or clean up on my wedding day, I decided to hire Bash! Without Jessica this day would not have been as perfect as it was.

Her organizational skills and thoughtfulness made sure everything was thought of. By keeping us on track with a checklist and meetings she made sure that we were never behind in what we needed to be accomplished. Over the months I know she became well acquainted with the words, "I don't know, what do you think?" With only a basic idea of how we wanted the wedding to work, she handled all the details to perfect our dream and make it reality. Her vendor recommendations were perfect and she knows what she’s doing!

I would completely recommend Jessica and her team for any event that you have on your schedule. I know she’ll make it the dream you’re imagining. Thank you Bash!!!

Jessica Church did such a fabulous job planning and creating my dream wedding. I cannot say enough about how impeccably organized, creative, and professional Jessica is. I was a pretty picky and high maintenance bride when it came to every last detail of our wedding being stylish, romantic, and picture perfect. Jessica absolutely exceeded all of our expectations. We were married on New Year's Eve; Jessica took our vision of combining our ceremony, an elegant dinner celebration, and a fun dance party all in one location, and she made it come to life beautifully. In addition to the gorgeous dessert table and a festive "2013" table she created, Jessica designed the most stunning candle-lit dinner table we have ever seen. Everyone thought it was stunning. In addition to Jessica's creativity, she is super organized. Our wedding day had a million details to manage, and Jessica followed through on every single one of them. We could not be happier with our wedding and Jessica!

Words cannot express the gratitude I have for Jessica and her team for putting on such a beautiful wedding. My wedding had so many beautiful details, my guests are still commenting on how gorgeous and fun it was. Jessica recommended and coordinated with a bunch of different vendors and was able to make the whole process easy and fun for me. I cannot imagine how this wedding would have ever been pulled of without this wonderful team of professionals who made my dream wedding come true.

Jessica was very organized, thoughtful, and responsive. Qualities that are crucial to a wedding planner. She will listen and clarify ideas that will help any couple plan the perfect wedding. Jessica gave more than 100% on the front end of planning, day of wedding, and even follow up. She and her staff are dedicated to creating the event that is envisioned. And they have fun and enjoy what they are doing while they do it.

Hiring a wedding planner was one of the best decisions we made! We hired Jessica Church of Bash! Events NW to do comprehensive planning and day of coordination. Since we were planning the wedding from Seattle, having Jessica in Portland was an absolute necessity for the leg work that we were not able to do from a distance. Jessica caught on to our vision quickly and made it even better! She took our vision for a modern wedding and make up with the unique idea of using lampshade centerpieces.

Her experience in coordinating events kept us on time, but allowed us the flexibility to deviate from the schedule when something good was happening. She has an uncanny knack for remembering all the details and running the wedding day flawlessly! We did conference calls on a regular basis to make sure we were on track with our to-do's. With each call, she always conveyed a sense of calmness. We knew we were always in good hands. No task is too small for her to do. She helped assemble 120 out-of-town guest bags for us. The wedding day went off without a hitch! She kept us on track and Paul and I did not have to worry about anything! She did so much for us, we couldn’t have asked for a better coordinator. We totally recommend her to anyone!

I signed up for services from Jessica after most of the major decisions were made. I felt overwhelmed and lost and Jessica stepped right in and took the stress off of me. I had a flawless and stress free wedding day. Not only is she amazing in her ideas and design, she is a great listener and listens to what your needs and budget are and really makes it work!!

I didn't initially plan on hiring a wedding planner, but I'm so glad I did! When I first called her, I had the most major stuff picked out, it was about 5 months until my wedding, but things were starting to get complicated. She offered a flexible service plan that was very affordable! My (now husband) and I lived in different states and we had extremely busy schedules. Hiring a planner helps you to take advantage of trusted companies while still doing the legwork to help you meet your budget. Jessica worked very hard pulling everything together when I occasionally fell off the face of the earth (I was moving, am in grad school, and worked full time graveyard). She went above and beyond, even putting the favors in boxes and tying all the ribbons on them, passing out final payments and tips the day of, and keeping in close contact for details like where I lost my lipgloss. With everything there is to think of (turns out, there is a lot), I am positive I would have missed something without her and had some kind of catastrophe. The peace of mind is worth hiring her alone. Now that the wedding is over I'm actually going to miss her!

Jessica was very helpful in relieving stress before our wedding. I started having her help me half-way through, not realizing in the beginning what a big job it is putting on a wedding, and she jumped right in easily and truly helped everything come together. She contacted vendors and figured out details that I had given up on, and the day of she was fabulous; bringing in her own details/decorations that added to the overall magic of the day. Her dedication and friendliness towards us and our wedding did not go unnoticed, and we all feel thankful to have her help!

"Jessica is an amazing find!!! I have been lucky to see her in action both in the Corporate Events world and now as our wedding planner. She has amazing, creative, "make it your own" kind of ideas, a great work ethic and is unbelievably organized. She spent so much time making pomanders for my wedding and even made wooden "wedding" signs for my guests to follow. She has met all my needs by infusing her creative talent, her eye for style and keeping my bottom line budget in mind!! You were amazing Jessica and you really made my special day perfect. I could not never gotten through it all without you. Thank you so much."

Jessica coordinated my daughter’s wedding, August 2011 and did an “Amazing” job! Every little detail from beginning to end was looked after. Jessica helped put the personal touch on the wedding that none of us had even thought about. Jessica has a gift for understanding what is needed and making excellent suggestions within our budget.
Jessica was there the night before coordinating the decorating and rehearsal and on the day of the wedding when we discovered we were short on people to help serve, Jessica just rolled up her sleeves and helped with the serving herself!
The day turned out perfect and we have memories that will last a lifetime.
If you are looking for someone to help you with an event I would highly recommend Jessica and Bash! Wedding and Events not only from the standpoint of attention to detail but with the knowledge that you can trust that your event will turn out beautifully!

Jessica and Cassady were so wonderful - we loved having them be a part of our day. They were direct and professional with our other vendors, but kind and thoughtful with our family. We had a huge wedding party and I spent a lot of time worrying about keeping everyone's focus during the rehearsal and shuttling to and from place to place but the gals at Bash! kept everything moving swiftly - I didn't have to worry at all. As a very non detail oriented person I LOVED Jessica's task lists, vendor info spreadsheet, and even her layout of our giant wedding party. That helped me feel on task despite the thousands of details to keep in order. That was, perhaps, the most invaluable piece of this whole experience!!
