Together Events is an alternative wedding planning and coordination company based in Portland, Oregon. We love to create beautiful and inclusive gatherings with carefully curated details that will make you and your guests feel welcome and celebrated.

Founder and Lead Designer Justine is a detail-oriented planner queen who loves Missy Elliot dance parties, tiki-themed drinks, and unicorn confetti. As a feminist and lover of people, Justine launched Together Events in order to serve and celebrate couples of all shapes and sizes. Our clients represent a tapestry of cultural and religious backgrounds, genders, races, abilities, sexualities, and so many other intersections of identity.

We help our clients integrate socially conscious practices into their wedding by connecting them with women-of-color-owned venders and donate 5% of our sales to Bradley Angle, a local community organization serving survivors of domestic violence.

We love helping our clients create new traditions rooted in partnership, not patriarchy. We welcome our clients to feel comfortable veering from tradition and telling their story in the most authentic way possible.

As checklist-loving nerds, we are excited to ease your wedding planning stress and make your vision a reality. We want your wedding to tell your story.

Examples of my work

  • Colorful and Spiritual Mayan Wedding featuring Women-of-Color-Owned Businesses
    Full of explosive celebration and predominantly featuring women-of-color-owned businesses, this Guatemalan-American wedding is a celebration of Mayan heritage with innovative, modern decor elements. Our purpose in designing this shoot was to celebrate Latin-American heritage in the midst of a largely whitewashed wedding industry. Ten of the 16 vendors featured were women-of-color-owned businesses, and all of the vendors were women-owned businesses. By combining an intimate, spiritual ceremony with a bold and lively reception, we hope that Latin-American clients will feel celebrated and inspired.
  • Cozy & Casual Vegan Elopement in a Vintage Camper on Film
    Shot almost exclusively on film, this cute and quirky elopement is a vegan bohemian dream. The couple’s day begins by waking up in a vintage camper, snuggling under a blanket fort, listening to records, sharing a Chemex of coffee using beans roasted on-site, and snapping polaroids of one another. They then change into wedding gear for an intimate Vegan almond cake cutting, followed by a walk through the city streets. Their simple and fun elopement is full of adventure.
  • Modern and Romantic French-Inspired Urban Wedding
    The concept for the shoot focuses around the juxtaposition between a romantic, organic vibe and the harsher urban landscape. Using a clean and minimalistic approach, we created an ethereal yet uniquely modern setting within an indoor venue – adaptable for any season or budget.
