Imagine Your Next Celebration on the Oregon Coast

When you think of celebrating a special occasion on the Oregon Coast what do you imagine? After moving to Astoria, Oregon in 2019 from Cleveland, Ohio I found myself daydreaming over this same question quite often.

In my first year as an event planner on the coast I’ve found it may be loved ones gathered around a glowing tablescape with Haystack Rock in the backdrop…a cozy wedding arranged at a historic rental home or a personal chef preparing a dinner set with seasonal dishes and Oregon farm fresh flowers.

The Oregon Coast is a mysterious and wild place where creativity thrives among the many artists, makers and unique small businesses found among in coastal communities. Inviting you join me here for event planning tips, design ideas, vendor notes and places to find on your next visit to the Oregon Coast.

Lookout to where the mighty Columbia River meets the unrelenting sea, lose track counting shades of green under in a layered forest and spend a Sunday afternoon doing a flower stand hop.

In a time of worldwide challenges I am finding comfort in the memories of days spent together with loved ones. I honor these sacred times in life with thoughtfully planned celebrations and hope to share a bit of event inspiration with you. Thank you for visiting! Jen Rickey -Voss
