Hiring Juliana will be the best wedding planning decision you ever make!
I originally hired Beyond the Event for my wedding florals and when I met with Juliana, she was extremely receptive to my budget and my vision based purely on Pinterest photos! The biggest highlight of the florals was my last minute decision to include a King Potrea flower as the statement flower in my bouquet. I asked Juliana about including it less than one month away from the wedding and she and the florist made it happen! The King Potrea was my husband's late grandmother's favorite flower and it's been included in every bridal bouquet of her grandchildren's weddings. It was as surprise to my mom-in-law and she burst into tears when she saw it, it was a very special moment and such a great way to honor a loved one who's no longer with us.
After facing the very many challenges of being a 2020 bride, I became overwhelmed around a month before the wedding. I wasn't sleeping, my anxiety was through the roof and then finally I made the best decision I could have ever made by reaching out to Juliana and hiring her on for coordination services in addition to the florals. Not only did she deliver the florals, but she picked up our cake, transported & set up all our decor items at the venue, she coordinated everything for the ceremony and the reception, AND she coordinated the after party that we hosted at a different location.
When it comes to picking a wedding coordinator I think the most important qualities are communication, professionalism, and the ability to remain cool and collected. Juliana exceeded my expectations on all fronts. Despite not being a local bride, we had several Facetime calls, she quickly responded to all my text messages and emails. Juliana was super professional with all my other vendors and seamlessly coordinated with every moving part. The best -- Juliana was calm and helped keep me calm. A few days before the wedding when I was stressing out, she sat me down and asked me --okay what's stressing you out? She listened and talked out everything that was on my mind and I suddenly felt relaxed and super fortunate that I had someone like her to help me. Even when we ran slightly behind schedule due to speeches being loooooonger than expected (kindly suggest time limits to your speech-givers! haha), Juliana was quick on her feet and found immediate solutions to keep us on track - miracle worker!
Lastly, Juliana is an overall kind person. Even my guests mentioned several times how much they loved my coordinator and how great of a job she did. I promise, you won't regret hiring Juliana!

Phenomenal Wedding Coordinator!
As a professional wedding DJ, I have had the pleasure of working with many different coordinators. So, I can appreciate the expertise and extreme professionalism that Juliana from Beyond the Event delivered for our mutual client. Working with Juliana made everything much easier, and I was able to deliver to my best performance because she was so on point with running the reception. She had all the planning materials (timeline, music, etc) prepared in advance, and she is an excellent communicator. If you are looking for a coordinator to help you plan, and to ensure that your wedding runs smoothly I highly recommend Juliana from Beyond the Event!Sent on 05/24/2021

Thank you Juliana for helping me with all of the wedding planning, prep, details. Truly helped me plan things out, helped me behind the scenes so much. Was non stop from the moment she got there until she left. Was tentative to all my needs/worries. Treated me how a bride should be treated! Made me feel special and try and ask what I need / wantSent on 05/25/2021

Founder/ Lead Coordinator
I’m Juliana the owner of a Beyond the Event, I grew up in Long Beach but sometimes I call it Mi playa larga. After being a bride myself in 2017, I fell in love with putting together every small detail of my happily ever after. I wanted to bring that love and creativeness to all the beautiful love stories that are letting their love grow. I was a kindergarten teacher and was always the one creating specific decor for our classroom/ school yearly events. This is where I discovered my passion for event planning. I love helping place together all the pieces of the event and watch their visions unfold on one of the biggest days of their new chapter as a newlywed. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’m a lover for all genders & people, a United States Air Force wife, fur mommy and willing to the extra mile on the smallest details.
The beauty I found as a coordinator & floral designer is that a career and passion came together as a full-time job. When a couple chooses me, I choose you back and then we are in it together. I love being part of where each individual couples wedding and follow wherever their love story takes them.
