Our guests are still talking about how amazing the wedding was and how stunning the décor was. Much thanks to Julianne (and Hilary from the Fairmont Palliser) for an amazing day we will never forget.

    We were having a destination wedding in Mexico at a smaller boutique hotel that doesn't do many weddings (as compared to a larger All-Inclusive Hotel that does multiple weddings every week). We had visited the hotel many times in the past and we knew it would be a beautiful intimate setting for our wedding; however, we were having a difficult time dealing with the hotel and the various vendors due to language barriers. We had an idea in our head…

    We were having a destination wedding in Mexico at a smaller boutique hotel that doesn’t do many weddings (as compared to a larger All-Inclusive Hotel that does multiple weddings every week). We had visited the hotel many times in the past and we knew it would be a beautiful intimate setting for our wedding; however, we were having a difficult time dealing with the hotel and the various vendors due to language barriers. We had an idea in our head of what we wanted but we couldn’t seem to communicate it to the hotel. Anyways, we were only a few months away from the wedding when we hired Julianne to get us over the goal post and help us realize our vision. The end result was absolutely amazing and we couldn’t have been more thrilled. The flowers were beautiful and Julianne coordinated everything perfectly. She really got what we wanted right away and took care of all of the details. Everyone kept saying how beautiful and elegant everything was and it was so nice because it really reflected our taste. Julianne was also very helpful with giving us unique suggestions for the music for the wedding. We 100% recommend her to anyone who wants to hire a wedding planner! Thanks Julianne!

    Our wedding day turned out to be better than we could have ever imagined – it was beautiful, it was fun, and it was stress free… all because of Julianne. We would do it all over again if we could!

    We could go on and on and on about how much you did for us and how much fun we had. It was just the best! (…and I keep looking at the pictures and can’t believe how beautiful that room turned out…

    Richelle and I cannot say enough good things about your professionalism and skill in handling our wedding. You took the time to research and understand the vision Richelle had. You kept us on track when we could not make up our minds and you knew what was really important to us so that we could stay within our budget yet still have everything we wanted.

    I think everyone agrees that no detail was missed. The ceremony was amazing and the reception was a blast. You were the perfect wedding planner for us and we miss you and Emmy Lou already. Keep in touch!

    From the Bride: My husband and I booked our ceremony, reception venue, photographer and DJ already. We figured that we could do everything ourselves and enlist the aid of family and friends to help us with all the set up and decorating of the venues.

    From the Bride:

    My husband and I booked our ceremony, reception venue, photographer and DJ already. We figured that we could do everything ourselves and enlist the aid of family and friends to help us with all the set up and decorating of the venues. This was our idea up until I had read a blog about Wedding Day Coordinators. I contacted Julianne and she responded right away! After speaking with her for well over an hour on the phone, I immediately knew that she was the right person for us and we hired her. We started the process in May for our July 30th wedding. Her service that she offers isn’t just a ‘Day of Coordination,’ it was a ‘Month of Coordination.’ She set up meetings for us to talk about the plans for our special day and took down all the details that we had planned up to date. The hardest part was that Julianne lived and worked out of Calgary and we were from Red Deer, and our wedding was being held there as well. But this was no obstacle; Julianne made everything so comfortable over the phone. It was like talking to her as if she was there in person. She is very patient and kind and most of all, she was a great listener. At stressful times during the planning process, the best thing was to have someone unbiased listen to your thoughts and feelings. Julianne was that person. She kept me on schedule; she kept me on track with the list of things that I had not yet accomplished and needed to get done. She would give me ideas to make our day a bit more ‘us’ and unique. She kept me organized.

    The month leading up to the wedding, I was more stressed than ever. I hadn’t realized how many small details I had left last minute. Again, Julianne was there to reassure me that everything was going to be fine and she kept me calm and had me on the ball on what I still needed to do. She took over all my contracts and if I needed anything from any of my vendors, she was my “go-to” person and made sure to contact my vendors if required. We had some troubles with a particular vendor and Julianne took care of it for us. I remember one day after receiving an email from her, I breathed a sigh of relief. I came home and told my fiancé how grateful I was to have Julianne there for our wedding. She had answered all my thoughts about the planning and calmed me down. She was there for us whenever we needed.

    The morning of the wedding, I remember waking up excited and calm. I had no worries. NO worries. It was such a treat to wake up knowing that everything was taken care of. She picked up the flowers and had them ready for us at the church. She helped the men put on their boutonnieres, and pocket squares. She helped my family put on their corsages. She and her assistant set up the church decor exactly as I wished. All I felt was excitement. Not a worry in the world. I just had to walk down the aisle to marry the man of my dreams, the love of my life.

    When my husband and I first walked into the reception hall, our jaws dropped and I had a few tears. Everything, absolutely everything I had planned and talked to her about was executed perfectly. It was way better than I had ever pictured in my head. It was beautiful, and romantic. Everything we had spent so long preparing was right there in front of us… she turned our plans into reality.

    Everything she had promised she would do, she did. And she did it with absolute perfection.

    The nicest part of having her was the knowledge that everyone in our family and friends got to enjoy that day as it was- fun, full of love and laughter. No one had to stress or worry to make sure that what we had planned was carried out. No one had to stay up late the night before to set up the tables, or to get up early that morning to make sure the bows were tied to the church pews, or to put on the chair covers and tie the sashes at the reception. Julianne took care of all the details. Everyone enjoyed their day without those stresses, especially, my husband and I. We just soaked in the entire day, more in love with each other than ever. It was our day, and it was the best day!

    Julianne was the greatest investment we made. She was always there to lend a hand, she listened and she really cared. She loves what she does and it truly shows. Her patience and kindness radiates and everyone around her sees and feels that. We were so honoured to have her be a part of our special day. We didn’t have a ‘Wedding Coordinator.’ Instead, we gained a friend. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Our day was that much more special because of what you did not only for us, but for our family and friends. Thank you!

    From The Groom:

    From a groom’s perspective if you are like me, you don’t realize how much actually goes into planning that special day. Yet when the day was moving along and especially at the start of the reception, it hit me that a lot of planning and organization went in to this day; a day for my bride and I. I can honestly say I felt a little guilty that I was not more involved or knowing how much actually went in to it. Julianne was not only professional and organized she was a calming presence who, looking back at it was the best investment we could have made. From making sure my pocket square was properly folded to having Tylenol for my headache before the reception. Julianne was that person. I felt comfortable talking to her and trusting in her to make sure everything went smooth. Her personality was so upbeat and her determination during the whole process was outstanding. I could not have imagined everything to have gone so smooth if Julianne was not a part of it. Not only was she the organizer but she became a friend. I can honestly say that moving forward, not only in personal life but also my professional life: if I get the opportunity to work with or hire Julianne again, I know I will because I know the job will be done proficiently and correspondingly.

    Our wedding day was many months in the making but the day could not have been more perfect thanks to Julianne. Throughout the planning she was a great sounding board for the ideas in my head and provided many detailed ways to turn my ideas into reality. As our big day came closer, Julianne managed all our vendors and organized our wedding party. She never hesitated to help me in anyway I asked, whether it was last minute floral arrangements I needed or ensuring our guest’s food requirements were catered to.

    Our photographer commented that he had never worked with a Wedding Planner so organized and on top of everything. Our wedding day was a refection of my husband and me and perfect down to the last detail.

    Thank you Julianne!

    We discovered Julianne Young through internet searches for Calgary wedding planners. We met with 2 other planners before meeting Julianne.

    We selected Julianne for the following reasons:

    1. She displayed an incredibly bright, friendly, and enthusiastic attitude
    2. She had ideas even in our meet and greet consult meeting
    3. Her overall package was an excellent value compared to the other planners. The other planners were more expensive, did not display the same enthusiasm (one put our meeting off twice),and were not as approachable or friendly.

    Right from the get-go we were thankful to have her in our preliminary planning. She helped us craft a budget that we would not have been informed enough to create. She helped us spend money where it would have the greatest effect (e.g. Lighting!!!) and to spend it on the most fantastic suppliers.

    She helped us to create our theme and feel for the day, and the end product was dazzling and beyond our expectations, all while fitting into the budget.

    Julianne also assisted us outside of her contract scope, just of her own time to ensure that we had everything we needed for a family barbeque we had the day before the wedding.

    Overall, we would without hesitation recommend Julianne to anyone and everyone to help plan a wedding. We were blown away by the experience and look of our day; it was everything we wanted and more.

    It was 100% stress free as she did all the legwork and organizing, while always keeping us up to date and aware of the planning progress. She gave us options for everything and always responded to our changes or ideas and came up with solutions that fit those ideas.

    I would not have so thoroughly enjoyed our wedding experience without Julianne’s help.

    Julianne was such a pleasure to work with. We felt completely safe placing all of the many, many tasks of our big day in her hands. On the day of the wedding we were able to really just stand back and enjoy our day to the fullest knowing that Julianne had everything under control! It was definitely money well spent, because you cannot put a price on stress relief leading up to the big day! There were many times in the month…

It was definitely money well spent, because you cannot put a price on stress relief leading up to the big day! There were many times in the month before our wedding that my husband and I said, Thank goodness we have Julianne on our team! She was always a joy to be with and helped us through some tough decisions so that our wedding was really about what we wanted!
    Thanks Julianne!!
