Setting the Scene

Caitlin and Michael were originally supposed to get married on March 20, 2020, but the universe had other plans and so they ended up tying the knot in July of last year in a small family ceremony!  Now that we are emerging from the chaos of last year, you are looking to have a wedding ceremony and reception with family and close friends in April 2022 with around 100 guests and are just getting started with planning.  You’re looking to plan a beautiful Hill Country ceremony followed by a fun reception that brings both of your families together for a celebration focused on a great location, music, food and drinks, without too much focus on the formalities of a wedding.  Getting started planning from out of town during a pandemic has been a bit overwhelming, and you’re looking for a planner that understands what you’re looking for and can help alleviate any stress, understand your vision, and help this celebration come to life.

Your vision for this celebration weekend is to create a fun atmosphere where friends and family can dress up and enjoy a beautiful night out without the stress of a ‘“typical wedding.”  The perfect reception location will have a somewhat finished space that doesn’t need a decor overhaul, rather, some pretty floral and linens, cool lounge pieces, great food, and a relaxed but elegant vibe!  You’re looking for a planner to help you make smart decisions to maximize your investment in this important celebration and make it feel very personalized to the two of you without becoming over the top, or adding unnecessary stress.

Aesthetically, the evening will highlight the impressive ambiance of whichever Hill Country location you select, adding in some gorgeous floral with warm lighting to complete the look.  Caitlin and Michael, you really believe in an understated less is more type of atmosphere that truly reflects you as a couple and will allow for a relaxed vibe in an elevated atmosphere. Being well travelled, you are both into great food and wine, so ensuring that the meal is inviting and delicious with great presentation is an important aspect of the evening, along with attentive service and a great selection at the bar.

I absolutely understand that maintaining a full-time job and planning a wedding from out of state at the end of a pandemic is overwhelming.  You want to host all of your closest friends and family in a relaxed location, participating in your favorite experiences, and truly enjoying the weekend without any unnecessary stress and chaos.  I would love to work with you both, and your families to make that come together into a beautiful and memorable weekend


“In a time of chaos, wonderment & being completely overwhelmed, Julian stepped in and gave us so much ease in our lives. That was a priceless gift.”

— Becky, Legacy Client

Praise

  

“I have been in a handful of weddings and truly have not seen one wedding planner be as organized and efficient as Julian. We will forever be thanking him for his time, his talent, and his infectious energy for making our wedding the most perfect weekend.”

— Holland, Bride


Holland & James – Aspen, Colorado – The Little Nell Mountaintop


Gabrielle & Will – San Miguel de Allende, Mexico – Rosewood San Miguel

 

“No matter how many times someone says, “live in the moment” and “enjoy every moment” I think that might be impossible. The celebration flies by and is so incredibly magical but with Julian the planning is just as rewarding and fun as the celebration.”

— Gabrielle, Bride


Planner

I wear many hats (er bow ties.) I’m a diplomat, designer, advisor, counselor, sounding board,  dreamer… The list goes on.

I’ve dabbled and directed everything from catering sales and management for the Crescent Hotel and Rosewood Mansion, to wedding planning and floral design for Bella Flora of Dallas. And along this 15 year journey here’s what I know is true… 

THERE’S A RIGHT WAY…

And that way is whatever way makes you most comfortable.

I subscribe to the Platinum Rule of treat others as THEY would like to be treated. And as a Washington School of Protocol-trained expert, I’ve learned that etiquette is about making others feel comfortable.

That’s why, I’ll meet you wherever you are on this planning journey. And we’ll walk the path together. With discretion and good judgement. 

After all, the way you feel determines how your guests will feel. And I want them to feel fabulous!
