Ranjita, owner of Simply Bliss Event Coordination, is absolutely wonderful! She has such a talent for working with people, planning events, and facilitating the big and the small on the day of.
Our wedding was meant to be a larger celebration in April 2020, but due to the COVID shutdowns we had to postpone to September 2020 - and then ultimately (due to personal limitations around COVID) had to replan our September wedding to a small, at-home wedding - and Ranjita rode every wave with us.
When we switched to the small wedding, we assumed we would not need a Day-of-Coordinator. We had already paid Ranjita, and in our opinion she had already followed through in her contract (she had been so fantastic leading up to the original April wedding, and had helped us postpone to the new date) so we just figured we’d call everything even and part ways. But even knowing this, Ranjita offered to still coordinate our small wedding - and it was the best thing ever! Not only does this illustrate her commitment to her work and being there for her clients, but we were so fortunate to still have her with us on our wedding day! We didn’t even realize all the big ways a Day-of-Coordinator can make a difference to a small wedding.
It was our first time trying to pull off an at-home wedding so our wedding day morning was a bit hectic haha, but when Ranjita showed up she jumped right in and got to work! From helping my sister untangle the necklace we had given to her, to running our ceremony - she made a significant difference in the flow and the details of our wedding. Knowing what we know now, I can’t imagine our small at-home wedding without a coordinator there - let alone without Ranjita there!
Whether you’re having a traditional wedding, or having a smaller intimate event, we highly recommend Ranjita and Simply Bliss Event Coordination!

Not only is Jita a gem of a person, she is lovely to work with, super responsive and loves the joy of weddings! Jita is a great day of coordinator to work with, especially if getting married at The Water Oasis. She works for the venue and really knows this beautiful place inside and out. Jita wants you (as the bride) to have the best day ever, and is very helpful answering questions, giving ideas and more! I loved working on the planning with Jita. We got the timeline planning done in great time and were constantly in touch via text, call or email. Jita is someone who just loves LOVE! She does this work because she enjoys it and after working with her over these months, I just adore her. We got married at The Water Oasis last weekend. Thanks again, Jita!

My Husband and I live in Colorado and were looking for someone to make the wedding planning process easy and enjoyable and we got just that! Jita made wedding planning from a distance a breeze and I would highly recommend her to anyone both in and out of the Portland/ Oregon area. She made us feel taken care of from the start and made the big day run so smoothly. I cant recommend Jita enough!!!!

Jita was simply amazing. Trying to plan a wedding during the COVID-19 pandemic was extremely difficult and she was able to help me navigate all of the cancellations and plan changes with ease. On the day of, my wedding turned out exactly how I imagined. My table settings were gorgeous and surpassed by expectations. All in all, I would highly recommend Jita for wedding planning. She was invaluable to me and our big day wouldn't have been as amazing as it was without her.
