Welcome to Simply Events!

We are excited to help you plan your next Gorge event. From weddings to yoga retreats, company functions to benefit dinners, Simply Events provides full service planning with the moto: “simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.” -Leonardo Da Vinci

We believe...retreats should be fun and feed the soul.
Benefits should be successful and support the bottom line.
Weddings should be beautiful and capture your dreams.

But ultimately, all events need to express you. What’s your style? Casual elegance, rustic charm, vintage chic? At Simply Events we help you create your dream Gorge experience whether you hold your event at a beach on the Columbia River, a barn in an orchard, a winery among the vines or a historic downtown hotel. The beauty of the gorge is that all of these options are possible and we are here to make it happen!

“Simply Events provided me with incredibly meaningful support and advice in preparation for our wedding. I appreciate your versatile skill set, whether tracking down luxurious port-o-potties, communicating with my dad about his desires or loading ceremony chairs in the back of your pick-up. You are caring, professional, attentive to detail and dedicated to piecing together a seamless and memorable event. Not only this, but it was like working with a friend who helped me see the important parts of my own wedding. Thank you -- Kris”
