As Pacific Northwest & Portland wedding planners, we want to assist you in curating your dream day somewhere local and true to who you are. Growing up in Southern California, I always knew there was nothing more breathtaking than a wedding set in the beauty of the Pacific Northwest. Imagine marrying the love of your life at an intimate beach elopement, in a historic hotel, having a whimsical forest for a love story's backdrop or running to one another in a local vineyard with rows upon rows of vines for a beautiful sunset photo session. 

Allow our team to work with you so that you can walk down the aisle with a calmness, knowing that we have planned logistical detail, organized a flawless timeline, and designed your personal love story, all to perfection; no matter the location!
Southern Affairs Weddings & Events plans and designs Pacific Northwest weddings all along the west coast including Portland, Oregon, Southern Oregon, Salem, Oregon, Los Angeles, California, Orange County, California, Santa Barbara, California and Seattle, Washington.

Portland Wedding Planners

timeless events 

We have a wholehearted mission to curate timeless, refined, and romantic events that leave a lasting impression.  You and your guests will truly enjoy your wedding day, a feat that we are truly proud of.

We create celebrations that are as approachable and joyful as they are stunning. Our personal style embraces simple and refined details—and we carry that over into the weddings and events we create. 

We adore any type of event, celebration or party! Whether it is a birthday brunch, bridal tea, anniversary celebration, or creme de la creme soiree. Let us plan your perfect event and make sure it goes off without a hitch.


Small weddings and elopements in Oregon are just as special as grand events. We believe that the traditional celebration isn't for everyone, and we wish to make your wedding beautiful and memorable.
We provide all-inclusive elopement, pop-up, and micro wedding packages for up to 35 guests.


Southern Affairs is your Portland wedding planner, coordinator, designer,  curator, supporter and advocate. We offer a full range of services, including full service wedding planning, partial planning, wedding management, wedding coordination, design and styling.  If you are getting married and want an elegant, stress-free experience, we are here for you.

" Robyne and her team made my wedding day stress free and gorgeous. I am constantly out of town for work, so I knew I'd have to have a planner; but I never expected the amount of service, detail, and support that I got from Southern Affairs. "
