    When preparing to get married, my now husband and I were skeptical about using such a service. Hiring a "wedding planner" seems like an outlandish and frugal expense - only for the 'rich and famous'. It wasn't until a work colleague (who also used Julianne Young Weddings) made an excellent point.

    When preparing to get married, my now husband and I were skeptical about using such a service. Hiring a “wedding planner” seems like an outlandish and frugal expense – only for the ‘rich and famous’. It wasn’t until a work colleague (who also used Julianne Young Weddings) made an excellent point. Hiring Julianne Young Weddings is an insurance policy – not only that your day will run smoothly (and boy did it ever!) but the vendors you hire WANT to be hired again with JYW and be reputable to their services they provide their clients.

    The wedding industry is like no other – it’s a hard pill to swallow when you’re paying hard earned dollars for services long before you’ve ever received a service! The moment you are interviewing vendors and mention Julianne Young Weddings as your planner/coordinator – attitudes immediately shift. Their reputation is second to none – everyone wants to work with them and be associated with their name and their clients.

    We were able to hire Julianne Weddings for ‘Day of Coordination’ but that means so much more than day of. We had the option of having multiple meetings with the staff, prior to, including an initial meeting and transitional meetings with options for more consults on an as needed basis – with countless emails and phone calls. They were always prompt to reply and gracious and kind with their time. Never once did they ever make me feel like I was ‘the crazy obnoxious bride’ , that i had unreasonable requests or questions, and wanted nothing more than to bend over backwards to make sure everything was perfect! The staff on the day of (Aimsley and Sam) were with us for over 18hours! From Decor set up to take down, from sewing my dress when it ripped to knowing exactly where I left my cell phone – dealing with timelines, schedules, and the finer details that no one would think to think of – they did, and dealt with it on the spot. Never once was I panicked, concerned, flustered…..I felt so calm and everything was unbelievably well managed. Because of all of this it gave us just that much more time to enjoy OUR DAY with the people that matter most to us, our guests.

    We have said it time and again – of all the money we spent on our wedding day these were dollars VERY WELL spent – and with all the time they put in, I still don’t know how they made any money off of us.

    Initial Consultation meetings are free, you have nothing to lose and everything to gain from this service. They exceeded all of our expectations.

    Working with Julianne and her team was one of the best decisions we could have made. She knew what we wanted before we did. From venue selection to design, she had nothing but great advice. Our wedding day went flawlessly and the decor was more beautiful than we could have imagined. We want to relive it again and again. Thank you, Julianne and Teal, we loved working with you so much. We're sad it's over! Alison & Nolan Married October…

    Julianne & Aimsley, Just wanted to say a huge thank you for all of your help on our wedding day. Everything turned out amazing! The ceremony was perfect and the room at Silvertip looked so beautiful. I just couldn't believe how incredible everything was. You were total champs throughout it all. We threw in a few curve balls here and there, but you knocked it out the park. It was a total dream come true. I really appreciate how accommodating…

    I really appreciate how accommodating and patient you were. You were always smiling and making us feel special.

    All of your hard work helped us enjoy the day and allowed us to live in the moment with our friends and family. That’s what this wedding was all about. We couldn’t have done it without you!

    Just wanted to write you a quick thank you note while we’re still buzzing from the excitement of the weekend 🙂

    Cheers!

If you are hesitating on whether a wedding planner is worth while or not – it is. If you are deciding between which wedding planner to choose – choose JYW!

    Julianne Young helped us come up with {our design concept} and gave us lots of great pointers! We met with her a few times at the beginning of the planning process and she helped big time... Getting us acquainted with how to tackle everything from vendors, decor and picking a venue. Thank you Julianne!

    We can't even begin to describe how amazing Julianne was. From the moment we met her she was too good to be true. Every step of the way she was so kind and helpful. She made our day better than we could have asked. We now consider her a friend. Thanks, Julianne, for going above and beyond our expectations.

She was quick and knew how to handle situations on the spot all while ensuring we were having a good time. Not only does she do an amazing and professional job but she does it with a warm heart and a smile on her face 24/7! Thank you Julianne, from the bottom of our hearts!

    When we met Julianne, we had recently interviewed another wedding planner and had another meeting a few days after with a third. Within the first few minutes we both loved her and had decided to hire her, cancelling our appointments with anyone else. When we met with Julianne she listened to what we wanted and immediately started having ideas in line with our vision. This was different from other wedding planners we met with who listened to what we said,…

    When we met Julianne, we had recently interviewed another wedding planner and had another meeting a few days after with a third. Within the first few minutes we both loved her and had decided to hire her, cancelling our appointments with anyone else. When we met with Julianne she listened to what we wanted and immediately started having ideas in line with our vision. This was different from other wedding planners we met with who listened to what we said, then showed us photos of what they were thinking which was completely different and more in line with their vision.
    Working with Julianne to plan the wedding was fantastic. I have heard horror stories about the stress that planning a wedding puts on people and we felt none of it. Julianne was attentive, easy to communicate with, and ensured we were as involved as we wanted to be. It is difficult to put into words just how amazing we feel Julianne is and how blessed we feel she was part of this special time in our lives.
    When asked about the cost of a wedding, I tell people continuously that the best money we spent was to hire Julianne. From a groom’s perspective, she allowed my bride to enjoy the process and not stress over the details. She was always there for advice or to answer questions that we had, and jumped on any requests whether it was a certain type of alcohol behind the bar, help me pick out a suit, questions about dinner choices, or advice on guest lists and seating to name a few of the middle of the week text and phone calls. I have heard other grooms argue about not hiring a wedding planner and I am telling you, HIRE HER! You won’t regret it for a second! I can’t imagine how we could have done this without her. I am still being told by people that this was the most well organized, beautiful, and most fun wedding they had ever been too.
    From a bride’s perspective Julianne was there with me every step of the way. She listened to what I wanted and did all she could to bring my vision to life. She allowed me to enjoy the time leading up to the wedding without getting overwhelmed with everything that had to be done. My family and I were also able to completely enjoy the day of the wedding without having to worry about all the minor things that come up.
    We could go on and on about how amazing it was to work with Julianne to plan our day but words don’t adequately describe it. She is innovative, professional, caring, fun, sweet, and most of all loves what she does which is easily seen by the quality of her work. We have already recommended Julianne to everyone we know and will continue to do so forever.
    We hired Julianne as our wedding planner, but we never knew we would get such an amazing friend in the process. Thank you for everything!

    Hands down amazing! Julianne, Aimsley, and Samantha went above and beyond. From creating an original wedding theme along with decor details, managing logistics, providing unbelievable vendor selections, and finally running a smooth wedding day - everything felt manageable with their expert advice and support. Having JYW our side through this process was absolutely priceless. We can't thank them enough for creating such a magical day for us, our friends, and our family. Thank you so very much, Steven & Jessica…
