Meet Renae:

Lead Venue Manager
Tour Manager

A native to Southern Oregon and rain/snow lover, 2019 marked my first wedding season with the Water Oasis as a Venue and Tour Manager.

I am very familiar with this popular and local venue, since I have been delivering wedding and event cakes here since they opened in 2012.  I enjoy being part of the growing Willamette Valley wedding industry for over 20 years as a professional cake artist and owner of Custom Cakes NW.  Since I live nearby, going to “work” is really more like visiting a neighbor.  

I  met my husband while skiing Mt. Ashland and love skiing the great Northwest, that’s why I was a January bride.  Any thrill that involves speed from driving fast muscle cars, to zip lining, skiing the tree-line, rafting the Rogue or Deschutes rivers, I seek those adventures.  I rock the hardest to 80’s big-hair-bands, eat dark chocolate reeeeallly slow, and my favorite part of any wedding is the cake cutting of course!  

Being a venue manager and cake artist allows me the privilege of witnessing a couples commitment to each other and their future lives.  I sincerely enjoy making your special day all the sweeter, while seeing local business grow, and your personal adventure start.  

Cheers ~ Renae

Hi I’m Ranjita – I go by Jita.  I moved to Oregon when I was 10 from California.  I fell in love with Oregon’s beauty and fresh air!  

I enjoy cleaning my house and organizing. I love to interior decoration and spending time with my husband and 2 pups Nico and pumpkin.  I have my bachelors in psychology.  FUN fact: I got married at The Water Oasis in 2014. 

I have been at The Water Oasis working for almost 4 years now!  I am a Lead Venue Manger, as well as handle all Communications & Tours.  I am also the Assistant Business Manager.   “Seasoned” in the wedding industry for over 5+ years, I have enjoyed learning and being a part of weddings and events.  This includes where my love for weddings and planning started – in planning and designing my own dream wedding!

I hold Water Oasis very near and dear to my heart.  Ever since me and my husband were married at Water Oasis, I have always wanted to be part of everything and anything there.  Over the years, I have watched Water Oasis grow and become such a wonderful place to hold events and your special day.  I LOVE “LOVE” and watching two people share such a wonderful moment with all their friends and family.  It puts me to tears every time and it reminds what is truly is important in life.   

Water Oasis is truly a magical place and I’m honored to be part of such a wonderful venue!
