Holland and James pictured the ceremony at the stunning Sundeck at The Little Nell on Aspen Mountain followed by an intimate seated dinner with elements of the natural setting made elegant. What the couple couldn’t picture is how to get there. The bride, Holland, a busy accountant had a mind for numbers and spreadsheets and needed a planner that would ‘get it’. How important the meaningful moments of the weekend are to her paired with detailed planning and careful review of all of the number balancing of wedding planning. Enter a planning team that speaks right brain and left brain fluently. Julian and Holland were able to discuss the numbers thoughtfully and also think through all of the important moments and memories that would take place. Enjoy Holland and James’ black tie Aspen soiree below!

When I met Holland, I almost immediately understood our primary challenge for the wedding planning process. As an accountant bride who loves spreadsheets and numbers, she was all about understanding value. But how do you place value on memories and experiences? Wedding planning is an abstract and emotion-driven process that also involves a lot of numbers, so I knew we would need to find a balance.

“I would highly recommend Julian, I think it’s been tough for brides this year because of COVID. This is uncharted territory for everyone involved, so keeping calm during the process is very important and using someone with the knowhow and connections is a good path.”

-Holland, bride
