Risa gives us a grand tour of all the in’s and out’s she’s learned when it came to writing and publishing her book, and how the process works if you’re interested in self-publishing next! You’ll love this one, friends, grab your pens & journals, let’s talk it out!
Grab your coffee, grab your tea, let’s talk it out!
About Risa Weaver-Enion
Risa Weaver-Enion is a wedding planner based in Sacramento, CA. Since launching Risa James Events in 2015, she has guided nearly 100 couples through the wedding planning process. Her attention to detail, grace under pressure, and ability to execute complicated weddings has led to her winning WeddingWire’s Couple’s Choice Award for six consecutive years. Her advice has been featured in multiple publications, including Upjourney.com, Shefinds.com, Honeyfund.com, and Long Island Bride & Groom. In 2021, she published a book titled “How to Plan a Wedding: A Roadmap to Guide You from Engagement to ‘I Do,’” aimed at couples who aren’t able to hire a full-service wedding planner.
Risa holds a bachelor’s degree in history from Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, and a juris doctor from Duke University School of Law in Durham, North Carolina. She has no hesitation in proclaiming that being a wedding planner is much more fun than being an attorney.
Risa lives in West Sacramento, California with the love of her life, her husband Rhead. When she’s not writing or planning weddings, you can find her making and photographing craft cocktails or visiting wineries and distilleries around the world.”
