Julie was such an incredible wedding planner! She was a pleasure to work with – probably the most important person to get along with, since you work with your planner a lot, and she works with all your vendors. She was incredibly organized and on top of everything. She was also very flexible – we had to make some last minute schedule changes for a few meetings and she was completely understanding and accommodating. Most importantly, on the big day, everything went perfectly! I expected it to go well, but figured a few things might not be perfect because things happen. Everything was perfect! All the guests were so impressed with how smooth and organized everything was. Our day would not have been nearly as awesome as it was without all the diligent hard work, planning, organization, and prep work by Julie. And she’s so much fun to work with! I would definitely recommend her to anyone planning a wedding. Thanks so much Julie!Sent on 09/07/2013

Julie is absolutely AMAZING!! Our wedding weekend exceeded all of our expectations, hopes, and dreams only because of sweet Julie and her hard work! Julie helped us plan our destination wedding in San Diego from our home in Colorado. She made every step of the planning process easy and was always attentive to every detail. Julie is extremely organized, dedicated, and experienced. She goes above and beyond to make sure everything is perfect! Knowing that Julie was there on my wedding day allowed me to be stress-free and enjoy every second! Through all of the planning and events, we feel like Julie is part of our family now and we would not have wanted to share such a special life event with any other wedding planner! Julie is truly THE BEST!!Sent on 09/20/2013

Julie is unbelievably wonderful at her work, a true force of nature. Our daughter found and interviewed her last autumn and it was love at first sight. From that time forward, Julie was involved with all aspects of the wedding planning for 170 guests (plus a separate shower for 25) through the wedding on August 3.Sent on 09/05/2013
One of her biggest contributions, which we did not fully appreciate until months later when everything came together, was the introduction of the very best vendors for everything from wedding dress to linens and flowers to cake. She always offered a selection for the bride's choice, but her selections always encompassed the best possibilities in the area, as we came to realize through the process in working with the vendors, mentioning them to others in the area, and finally seeing their beautiful creations. Her other huge contribution was handling every detail on the "day of" with calm, finesse, and a quiet velvet touch, keeping everyone calm while being ever vigilant and on top of every preparation and execution in every front stage and back stage area of the wedding and reception over the course of a dozen hours. In addition to the wedding, she was an enormous help in organizing the shower arrangements, food, set-up, and music. And during the months between initial introduction of vendors and final execution, she was always there, always supportive, always following up with vendors and with us, keeping everyone on schedule, solving every crisis of the moment, and keeping everyone reassured, confident, and as relaxed as anyone could possibly be with such an event.
She is an organizational genius -- keeping complete control over every detail while conveying an outward calm and relaxation that is so reassuring to everyone, and managing diverse people in an unstructured environment with tact and skill that gets everyone where they should be without any ruffling of feathers or egos.

Julie was awesome to work with. All parties involved except the Groom were not local so Julie was very responsive, professional, and helpful with coordination and getting the best pricing on vendors along with her eye for detail. Julie made the whole process very stress free and we were all able to enjoy the event knowing she had a handle on everything. I was pleasantly surprised that all the pieces fell into place and my daughter had the wedding of her dreams.Sent on 07/31/2013

For our wedding Julie began taking over coordination three months out. As a couple we had done planning prior to Julie taking over and the transition from our efforts to Julie's coordination was seamless. Julie picked up exactly where we were at that time and really helped the whole wedding come together while maintaining our vision and expectations.Sent on 11/16/2013
Julie provided not only sound advice and tireless answers to our questions but also helped us cover all of the bases necessary with incredible vendor recommendations. Issues and potential conflicts and challenges were recognized and addressed early - and while some decisions surrounding a wedding are inevitably difficult at times, Julie kept a calm and professional demeanor while helping us decide exactly what we thought was best for our wedding.
Julie was organized, patient, and efficient but refreshingly passionate about our wedding. Her love for her job and role she played in the planning and execution of our wedding was seen in all that Julie did. In the end the wedding we had was exactly as we had planned leading up and Julie made sure it went down perfectly both in timing and content. Thanks to Julie the months leading up to our big day were easy going and fun and the final product was truly the best wedding ever.

Julie with The Best Wedding For You coordinating services helped plan my husband and mine’s wedding this past June. When we first met with Julie we were sold on having her coordinate our wedding. We had found her through reviews on wedding websites and thought, how could we go wrong with her? She has 5 star reviews! Well, make that one more 5 star review from us. Julie was amazing. We opted for her Month of Plus package. She was always available by email or phone if we had any questions and even came to a few meetings with us with different vendors. It was so helpful to have her input because we had never planned a wedding before and obviously didn’t know the logistics. Where Julie’s skills really become impeccable and invaluable are the month of and day of the wedding. She handled all the little details (which I had no idea there’d be so many) and my husband and I just needed to confirm “yes” or “no” most of the time. She puts together a “day of” agenda laying out the timeline for everything to happen, even down to 15-minute increments of when my bridesmaids would be getting their hair done! She knows how to keep all the days’ events on track.Sent on 06/29/2013
Once the day arrived, Julie handled every single detail. If anything went wrong, which I’m sure it didn’t because of her immaculate coordinating, we had no idea about it! The entire day ran smoothly. She was there all day making sure everyone was where they needed to be and every detail of the night took place as planned.
So many of our family and friends have told us how great the flow was of the entire day and that we must have had an amazing coordinator. So true! Julie truly made the day perfect for us and we had more fun that day (with no stress) that we could have imagined. We highly recommend using Julie for wedding coordinating services. We even used her husband Mick’s DJing services with Elite British DJ who was just as amazing.They are such professionals and the night went off without a hitch!

Where do I begin?Sent on 07/21/2013
I will try to make this short...but no promises.
Julie was THE GREATEST month-of-planner. I had most of my plans planned and finalized, but was just looking for someone to help me the month leading up to the wedding. Even though she was only 'month-of' - she was always very responsive if I had questions or needed recommendations the months leading up to our work together.
Julie did everything starting 4 weeks before the wedding. She basically said "don't worry about it, i will touch base with all of your vendors and take over communication with them." This was a HUGE relief. I think I did a pretty good job of wedding planning leading up to this point, but there is no way I could have done the final touches without Julie.
The day of the event was flawless, thanks to Julie. I unfortunately woke up with food poisoning the morning of the wedding, and Julie was a saint. She took such good care of me and made sure that I was as comfortable as could be throughout the night. Something that probably wasn't in the contract: taking care of a sick bride. But Julie did it, no questions asked.
So - no need to look any further, just work with Julie and relax!

Julie was amazing!! She was the glue that held our wedding day together. She helped make our day one of the best of our lives. Her professionalism and care were unbeatable. Anyone in the San Diego area would be lucky to have her as their wedding planner. Words can't express how wonderful she was in all aspects of our big day.Sent on 04/26/2013

Julie was absolutely amazing! We got married in San Diego, but planned our wedding from Texas. That can be very stressful, but Julie took care of everything and organized everything to perfection. We did skype sessions and she was very responsive via email and phone. She definitely knows what she is doing and has a lot of great contacts for other vendors you may need to use for your wedding, i.e. tranportation. I was VERY impressed with her professionalism and organization and would recommend her to anyone!!Sent on 04/01/2013

Julie did an outstanding job as our wedding coordinator. She isSent on 01/03/2013
organized, responsive, and really helped calm my nerves during the
week leading up to my wedding. She offers full service, month plus,
and week / day of coordination. I loved the fact that when I brought
something to her attention, it was handled immediately and with a
positive attitude. She is in constant contact with your vendors to
ensure a smooth wedding. She is also very detail-oriented, and notices
things that most people miss. For example, I was all ready to walk
down the aisle when she noticed my veil wasn’t over my face. Normally
if I wasn’t frazzled I would have noticed something like that. It
would have been a bummer if that little detail was overlooked but
thanks to Julie it wasn’t. Even my other vendors and my Mom
commented on how she was so good and on top of things. She kept us on
schedule and every event, from the rehearsal to the end of the
reception, went off without a hitch. Girls – do yourself a favor and
save your sanity on your wedding day and hire Julie. You can’t
possibly be everywhere at once and the day goes by so fast, you want
to enjoy every minute. She made my day a lot easier and more enjoyable
– I am so glad I hired her!

Julie was absolutely amazing! She was so on top of everything and completely organized! She made my day stress free and I could actually enjoy everything going on! Not only was she organized and precise...she was the nicest person! She had a very calming way about her which was very nice to be around on the day of the wedding! I would highly recommend her services! Best planner you could ask for!Sent on 11/12/2012

My wife has worked with Julie professionally in the past at her restaurant so when it came time for us to get married in the fall last year, it was a no brainer for a wedding planner. As soon as I got a chance to meet her I knew she would be a good fit. Julie has been doing this for a long time and is able to use her experience, creativity, and positive attitude to deal with the pre planning and day of issues. In addition, during the wedding, all of the family involved in the wedding kept coming up to us and saying what a great job she was doing and how it was the most organized and non stressful wedding they had ever been to.Sent on 03/06/2013
Everything was being planned by Julie which in turn left us to enjoy the wedding. I would turn around and Julie would appear out of nowhere to let me know it was my turn to speak etc. I cannot say enough how great a wedding planner she and how if you are getting married you must choose her as your wedding planner. Any concerns you may have about your wedding will be handled by Julie. She is one of a kind!

Words can't express how grateful I am, and how happy I am that Julie was our wedding coordinator. From the beginning, she was very professional but approachable, knowledgeable, responsive....the list goes on. I don't know what I would have done without Julie. Her recommendations were spot on, she was so helpful throughout the whole wedding planning process, and crucial for our wedding day! She took the stress out of wedding planning, and I just knew that our wedding day would go perfectly with Julie as our wedding coordinator. She responds very quickly to emails, makes good recommendations, and is just really wonderful to work with! We are so grateful to Julie....and she gets our highest recommendation! GO WITH JULIE! You won't regret it!Sent on 09/09/2012

Loved Julie. She is so detailed and organized. She takes care of everything. We hired her for the month of the wedding for a wedding at the Ocean View Room on the submarine base. She has alot of experience working with the bases and did an outstanding job. I would highly recommend her.Sent on 09/08/2012

My husband and I hired Julie to handle the wedding planner portion of our sons wedding on 7/14/12. Julie was the best from the rehersal, to making sure all went smooth at the church to the reception. Julie is so organized we couldn't have had such a perfect day without Julie and Mick our DJ, Julie's husband, they are the best and we would recommed hiring them as a team.Sent on 07/29/2012

Well, I imaging a review from the father of the bride would be a bit unusual! But, I have to comment on Julie's work with our family, culminating in a terrific wedding! She was absolutely wonderful in her calm demeanor and work with us, especially on the big day. Everything was coordinated wonderfully, she was sensitive to events throughout the day, and was able to manage us and our wedding party without a hitch! A consummate professional, which is exactly what you want...would not want to imagine the day and the few months leading up to it without Julie! Thank you Julie and we look forward to our next family wedding with you!Sent on 08/03/2012

I'm not sure how anyone would ever get by without Julie. She did an amazing and incredible job capturing every detail and making sure we didn't have to worry about anything. The night went by so quickly and Julie always had everything in control for anything that came up. Our wedding was amazing, and we couldn't have asked for anything more. Our guests were saying the wedding was so much fun they would have wanted to be at the wedding even if they didn't know us!Sent on 07/08/2012

Julie is an absolute life saver. We were planning our wedding from all over the country and finally realized we just couldn't do this alone. What we didn't realize was just how MUCH we couldn't do without her. She grabbed my garbled thoughts and ideas and beginnings of planning, organized them and perfected them. She allowed me to plan and make me the final decisions but always offered an honest opinion. Every vendor she suggested was AMAZING and affordable!!! (and always worth more than what they cost) I am at a loss for words when I imagine what my wedding would have been without Julie. On top of her amazing services, we added her husband in as DJ and created an unstoppable team. In my opinion, she deserves so much more than her asking price. Affordable. Organized. Precise. Accommodating. Personable. My wedding was perfect thanks to Julie's amazing services.Sent on 07/04/2012

Julie was in one word AMAZING! I can honestly say that on our big day my husband and I had the time of our lives. Not once were we wondering what was next or being asked questions.

Julie was the 'month of' coordinator for our daughter's wedding in San Diego at the US Grant on 4/21/12. She was absolutely invaluable!! She is so personable, and so easy to work with, and as the mother of the bride, and chief wedding planner, I was happy to have her expertise, help, and opinions - especially during the last week, and day of the ceremony & reception! She took a lot of stress off me, and I was truly able to enjoy every minute! Thank you, Julie! And thanks to her husband, Mick (Elite British DJ) for his awesome abilities as well! They are a wonderful team, and our family highly recommends both!Sent on 05/03/2012

Julie was referred to me by our wedding cake designer. We were looking for a coordinator for the day of the event. You never know when things might go wrong and would like to spend time enjoying your wedding and not placing a family member in charge. Julie was an angel from above. On the day of the event, she took over and was in charge as if she had planned the entire wedding from day one. She knew every detail, at what time, who should do what, made sure I took a break, ate food and enjoyed my wedding. I could not have done it without her. She was professional, sweet and wonderful. The best event planner ever, and I continue to recommend her to all my friends.Sent on 11/01/2012

I count my lucky stars that my husband agreed to hire Julie for my daughter's wedding. As we planned it in 3 months, and my husband & I did a lot of the work for it ourselves. Having Julie take care of the wedding day details, like securing all the vendors knew the time line of events. That the wedding party got what they needed at the time they needed it, took a lot of stress off my shoulders the day of the wedding. We had the wedding & the reception at two different locations, so having her take care of details I couldn't physically be there for, made the day just PERFECT! She took care of letting people know where they were sitting, as to paying all the vendors, as well as keeping us on a timeline for the evening of the wedding, details such as throwing the bouquet to cutting the cake. She executed everything beautifully and professionally.Sent on 11/11/2012
It is definitely worth the money to have the peace of mind Julie can give you for such an important day as a wedding day! I would hire her again in a New York minute, even though I am from San Diego! :-)
