Sadie McIntyre

I’m Sadie, I have spent 20 years in various roles as an event planner. As a professional, I have experience planning high-end religious and non-denominational weddings. As a volunteer, I’ve organized non-profit auctions, and other fundraisers to benefit area schools and youth organizations. As a community organizer, I’ve organized, trained, and worked with volunteers for different causes I believe in.

Vareus Events is different than a lot of other local planning companies, because I am a different wedding planner. I’m a professional Certified Wedding Planner, I don’t run a hobby business or mass produce weddings using mostly the same venue or vendors. Over the years, I have been fortunate enough to help plan some of the most beautiful ceremonies at some of the most breathtaking resorts, and neighborhood churches and venues, first in San Diego, where I grew up and started my first small planning company and now today in Portland, where I’ve raised my kids for the past seventeen years. What I value most in planning a wedding: is the love story we are telling in each wedding we plan. Let’s celebrate what brought you together, why you want to spend your lives together, and let’s create the perfect day to capture everything that makes your love important and special.

Every wedding should tell a story, what’s your story, and how can I help you tell it?

A few fun facts about me: My favorite things are my family, my dogs, weddings, bourbon, and beer.  My favorite flowers are ranunculus, lilies, peonies, roses, tulips, and birds of paradise. I can’t pick one.

My motto: Life isn’t always a party, but it should be!
