You have picked one of the most beautiful places!

But let’s be honest - planning a wedding, a big event or any other production from afar can be an extremely challenging task. Our knowledge of the San Juan Islands, their hidden gems and of course our incredibly talented local vendors (including all their perks and quirks), as well as our creativity and ingenuity will make a huge difference in your planning process.


We are crafting our packages and services according to the diverse needs of our customers, trying to be as much or little involved in the planning process as necessary and/or requested. Contact us for your free hour consultation ​and let’s talk about what your priorities are and explore the best way to meet them.


Our team operates mostly on Orcas Island, but we are happy to travel to any other island or to the mainland.

Unlimited Planning incl. Day-Of Coordination

You know exactly what you want but the demands of daily life leave little time for you to work out the details? Hiring us to plan and coordinate your wedding will save you many hours of research. We will be there every step from the development of ideas to the day after the wedding. We make it our responsibility to carry out your wishes exactly as you had imagined down to the very last little detail, but with the same passion and intensity as if you’ve done it yourself.

Partial Planning incl. Day-Of Coordination

This package is designed for the couple that prefers some guidance during the whole planning process. We'll assist you in making the right decisions, pointing out any red flags, keeping you inspired and remind you of vendor deadlines - and most importantly: getting you down the aisle with a radiant smile on your face. The option to add additional planning hours as we move along gives you the freedom to pass on the torch when life is calling for your attention.

Our event production services 

We love our wedding clients, but we also love to support our local businesses and non-profits, as well as any other productions which support the islands, with our production skills. These islands thrive because of a very active community, which strengthen the island's sustainability and economy through supporting each other. There are so many interesting people living here, from big CEOs, Hollywood producers and actors to nationally acclaimed musicians and artists, authors and many more. The talent you can find here is supreme on all levels, and so are the stories and inspirations. The beauty of our archipelago draws you into a different world, where island time is a real thing and you'll forget about stressing out. That there is hardly any cell reception or wifi is definitely a blessing, but tough if you need to get a hold of someone.

All this is sometimes hard to understand for our clients from the busy mainland - and that's where we come to shine. As your local production managers and/or art directors, we'll be able to streamline any communications, find the hidden locations you're looking for, line up the best matching vendors and create efficient designs, scripts and timelines you can rely on.


Please contact us if you'd like to inquire about our productions rates.

Owner & Senior Consultant

I have always had a passion for wedding planning. I was 16 years old when I planned my first wedding for a group of 100 people. For the last 12 years I have been a part of the wedding & events industry in the San Juan Islands. The joy that I felt from everyone was infectious. After every event, I had a smile on my face because I knew I had been a part of something beautiful. It always feels like magic to help create memories that people would never forget.


Prior to purchasing Cloud 9 Events, I was working in corporate banking, focusing primarily on business coaching and managing a retail location. What it taught me was that I was ready to successfully manage a business and be my own boss. 


In November 2021, I purchased Cloud 9 Events from Kimaya, the founder of the business. She and I had worked countless events together, so it was a natural transition for me to buy Cloud 9 Events. I have been so lucky to have been mentored by her! Kimaya’s years of industry experience and the incredible reputation that she has built for Cloud 9 Events is an exciting launch pad for the next era of the business. I am incredibly grateful for the support and side by side training I have received through this transition. <3 


Cloud 9 Events is licensed & insured, and actively supports our local chamber & tourism office since 2010.
