    Still four months after our wedding, people continuously rave about how magnificent it was. Words like “Amazing”, “Wonderful” and “Perfect” are those that are most often mentioned when thinking about a day we will never forget.

    Still four months after our wedding, people continuously rave about how magnificent it was. Words like “Amazing”, “Wonderful” and “Perfect” are those that are most often mentioned when thinking about a day we will never forget. These words can also be used to explain how we feel about Julianne Young Weddings and the way they handled our most special day. Julianne and her staff made our wedding not only one that would last the wedding day and evening but one that will live on as one of the most perfect events ever hosted within the Banff Springs’ Majestic St. Stephens Hall. Every detail was planned and executed perfectly. Julianne was able to make an event full of intricate details and found a way to make it run seamlessly. Our wedding was the most amazingly wonderful day and was made perfect by being able to enjoy it with friends, family and my beautiful wife; not running around organizing. Best money spent during the wedding process by far.

    Why choose a wedding planner?

    A: Because you need one !!!

    Did I want want to use a Wedding Planner?

    A: No. My wife, like every women out there wanted the wedding of her dreams. To accomplish this it was very evident that in order to have this it was going to cost me. As the “Wedding CFO”, I set a budget (which, trust me changes. Not for the better gentlemen. Ha ha). Of all the items on her list the ONE that I felt was the most unnecessary was the Wedding Planner. Boy was I WRONG !!! It was the best money I ever spent. (And that is coming from a cheap Ukrainian!)

    Why did we choose Julianne Young Weddings?

    A: When it became obvious that we needed help to bring this dream wedding to reality we started searching for the best. Through the internet and magazines we began to search for the areas top wedding planners and came across Julianne’s name. After looking at her work and talking to her we soon realized we had come across the next great wedding planner. Seeing an opportunity to work with her as she built out her business was exciting for us and we are sure glad we took the chance as she did not disappoint.

    Why was the experience so positive?

    A: Everyone looks to have the perfect wedding and yet having been to various other weddings, we felt there often seemed something amiss. The food too cold, the music not right, the reception not organized etc. With Julianne, from the start to finish, our day could not have gone more perfectly. The only thing we needed to worry about was showing up and cherishing our friends, family and each other.

    Style:

    Julianne was able to understand our goals and design a wedding style that fit the exact type of event we were looking for. She made it royal, pretty, fun and majestic using a sense of style that was completely in line with who we as a couple are and how we wanted our day to feel.

    Planning:

    Julianne walked us step by step through the planning of our wedding. From our meetings Julianne was able to highlight every item that needed to be addressed before the big day.

    Sourcing:

    We were very specific on what we wanted the wedding to look like. Julianne was able to source and secure every item needed to make the wedding look the way it did and ensured that it was not only purchased or rented but that it was at the location and set up exactly how we wanted it. Every vendor she forwarded was ideal to what we were looking for.

    Day of Operations:

    Julianne and her staff were day of wizards, her sense of style and final product absolutely blew us away. They were organized and scheduled, making it feel like it was effortless to be put together; which we know was not the truth. Her coordination and relationships with the Banff Springs staff allowed for a the venue to display a wedding that was the talk of the town.

    Of all the beautiful things that surrounded the day; from music, centrepieces, flowers to meals, speeches and photo booth; none would have been as special if we had not had the full day to experience it stress free. Julianne Young Weddings has become the next great name in Southern Wedding Planning and Design. We feel that we were very lucky to have worked with her as it is our feeling that she may have her wedding planning dance card full for years to come. Julianne made our dream day a dream. And we could not have been happier.

    Thank you so much 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: She displayed an incredibly bright, friendly, and enthusiastic attitude She had ideas even in our meet and greet consult meeting 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…

    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…

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 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!!
