Julie began her event planning career while pursuing a degree in Advertising and Public Relations in Wisconsin. Filling a constant thirst for events, she busily involved herself in the planning of parties, showers, and weddings while still in college. Landing herself a role with a premier firm prior to graduation, Julie has served on all rungs of a planning firm, cutting her teeth first as an intern, while hard work and perseverance have secured her roots in the industry. Having experience in many capacities from weddings to nonprofit galas gives her an edge in expertise and versatility when it comes to any type of event. She boasts a bubbly personality that allows for clients and vendors alike to feel at ease and as if they’ve had a lifelong relationship throughout the entire planning process.
Julie lives for the fast-paced lifestyle that comes hand in hand with event planning and being behind the scenes is something she thrives on. As the day should solely spotlight the client as a whole, you’ll always find her in the background making sure production is running smoothly with a smile on her face. Grace under fire and her can-do positivity lend cause to successful event execution and affirmative reviews. She finds the big unveil to be the most exhilarating part of planning and loves when her client’s grand visions come to life in front of them.
Having planned events in Texas, and from the Midwest to Mexico, her work has been featured in Style Me Pretty, The Knot, Smitten Collective, 100 Layer Cake, and Wisconsin Bride. Julie enjoys incorporating fun pops into traditional elements and is smitten with any pretty paper goods. When it comes to styling, she can’t help but fixate her focus on the tiny touches, all the way down to typography. In her spare time, she is always preparing herself for her next big adventure and never fails to have a half-packed suitcase waiting in her closet.
