Jordan & Parker

We had the privilege of working with Dorotheea at Kamea Events for our wedding on Sept 14, 2019. We initially landed on Kamea Events via Instagram, we loved her style/aesthetic and knew that she was the perfect fit for our vision, and by chance had availability! We booked Dorotheea for full planning, and day of coordination services, and gave her total creative control. Our wedding date was extra special because it was also our daughter's first birthday - so we wanted to be sure to incorporate her, and this first milestone in our plans for the day. Dorotheea more than exceeded our expectations, and throughout the whole process we were free from worry and stress as we knew we were in good hands. From the bigger rentals and logistics, all the way down to the smallest detail, everything was absolutely perfect. Day-of, I never wanted for a thing, because Dorotheea had literally everything covered. My only wish is that we could do it all over again, and slow down to take in all the beautiful things she created - from the tablescapes, to the outdoor "living room" areas, the whole day was a dream. Always hire a wedding planner, and always look for Kamea's availability first. Their services are more than worth the investment, and though I don't plan on having another wedding (haha!) I would hire Dorotheea again in a heartbeat! We can't thank you enough!”

Jordan & Parker’s wedding went off without a hitch!


Kendell & Dalton

"Without Dorotheea and her team, there's no way that my wedding day could have happened. We had an unconventional wedding venue and had to find generators, tables, portapotties, plates, heating trays for food, EVERYTHING and we hardly had to worry about it because she found options for us that were perfect for our tiny budget. She handled every situation with poise and grace, but was also firm to stick up for what we wanted and made it happen with ease. Seriously, shes amazing. There was terrible wind the day of the wedding and they figured out how to get our decorations up and to stay in place! They even got poison ivy and continued to work their butts off. Don't try to tackle planning by yourself. Seriously. Kamea Events is the way to go."

Tiffany & David

"Dorotheea is one of the most amazing humans I have ever met. I don’t say that lightly. Everything I have seen her put her hands to has turned out so good! Including my very own wedding. I met with Dorotheea when I was completely overwhelmed and frustrated with trying to figure out how to make my vision for my wedding come to life and make it cost effective for 250 guests. I did not have the time to research prices and shop around with only a six month engagement process, but from the moment I met with her I felt so much stress and weight fall off my shoulders. She took the time to listen to my vision, provide advice, and shop around for the cheapest prices of everything from candles to linens. What I appreciated the most with Dorotheea is that she didn’t tell me my ideas were not going to work or try to convenience me to go another direction, but she truly partnered with my vision and over exceeded my expectations of the perfect elegant/romantic wedding. Another thing I appreciated was this girl's communication skills. She communicates quick and never leaves you hanging and always keeps you informed which was so refreshing during the wedding planning process. This girl loves details and that shows in her beautiful work. I would recommend Kamea to everyone and anyone whether you are planning a wedding or a simple birthday party."

David & Tiffany's wedding was an elegant success!


MacCoy & Dallas Merkley

"Dorotheea has planned several events for and with my wife and I. She is without a doubt one of the most reliable and dependable planners / coordinators in the Portland / Vancouver area. I wouldn't hesitate to trust her with any wedding, party, gathering or event as she will undoubtedly do everything in her power to make it a success as if it were her own. Amazing styling and design with extreme attention to detail." - MacCoy Merkley, MacCoy Dean Photography

"Dorotheea at Kamea Events is by far the most efficient & professional coordinators & stylists I have ever worked with. Her work speaks for itself, however her communication & attention to detail are what makes her such an absolute joy to work with. My husband & I were both so pleased with her work & ideas. She went above & beyond, wildly exceeding our expectations - can not wait to work with her again!" - Dallas Merkley, Merkley Artistry
