We hired Julia of Julia LaCroix Wedding Planning & Event Design to finish planning our wedding, and she was wonderful to work with. We were already in the process and had made some decisions on our own. Julia was able to work with where we were and fill in the outstanding gaps.

From the moment that we met her, we knew that Julia would be perfect for our wedding. She has great style, taste, and ideas. Julia knows numerous vendors for different price points; she helped us choose the best ones for our budget, and we were very happy with them. There was never any pressure to choose her recommendations; Julia just knows that they do great work. She also took care to make sure that we were comfortable with every decision.

Julia is professional. Throughout the wedding planning, she was always on time for appointments, if not early. She is also a very clear communicator.  She made sure that the planning process was as easy as it could be on us so that we could enjoy our journey and celebration. During the day of our wedding, her coordination was impeccable. The day went perfectly smooth and was drama free.  She took care of everything that was outstanding or that wasn’t being done by someone else, which made us at ease.

With Julia, we made a new friend. We’re sad that our time with her as our wedding planner has ended, but we know that we’ll continue to keep in touch with her. We have no regret in choosing Julia and would highly recommend her to anyone.

Julia and Jennifer were amazing. I gave them very little guidance other than the few specific items that were important to me and she was able to not only do all of the specific projects to perfection, but fly solo on everything else and it all looked amazing! I often said throughout the morning, “whatever you want to do will be just fine,” and it wasn’t. It was amazing! I did not want my family to have to work throughout the wedding to set up and tear down and they did not have to do anything but enjoy themselves. Thank you, Julia! Love, Kristi and Cody.

We were absolutely blown away by our wedding, as were our guests. Julia went above and beyond and did not miss a single detail. With her one of a kind style and expertise she made sure we had everything we wanted for our special day. Our wedding was stunning and was executed with an insane amount of organization. Even more, Julia has surrounded herself with vendors who were incredible to work with and made the process easy and very enjoyable. We couldn’t have had the wedding of our dreams without Julia. Beautiful inside and out, we are so lucky now to call Julia our friend.

We couldn’t be happier with the way our wedding day turned out thanks to Julia. She exceeded all of our expectations and went above and beyond on every detail, big or small. We never felt stressed since she was willing to handle anything and everything we threw at her. We were both extremely busy in the months leading up to the wedding and living in a different state. Julia truly cares about her clients and throughout the whole process she did everything to make sure we were happy. Thanks to Julia we were able to truly enjoy our wedding day and not have to worry about a thing. People are still talking to us about our wedding, there isn’t one thing we would have changed. Julia’s energy is contagious. She was always professional, has a great personality and made the entire process fun rather than stressful. Our guests couldn’t stop talking about what a wonderful job she did! We still don’t know how everything turned out so perfect with everything we had to ask her to do. She’s amazing! We would without a doubt recommend her to anyone for any event!

Julia was amazing. First and foremost, she has a wonderful personality, and was delightful to work with. She was excited about our wedding, and making sure the day was a success. To that end, she was professional and organized, and she thought of everything. She resolved issues that we didn’t even know existed, which allowed me, my husband, and our parents to be able to relax and enjoy the day. For example, our DJ’s microphone was out of batteries, and he didn’t have spares. The only microphone, the one that was to be used for the speeches, toasts, and his announcements. But, have no fear! Julia had batteries in her bag of tricks, solved the problem, and me and my husband were none the wiser that this issue even occurred until after the wedding. That is but one example, she also resolved a seating crisis, and sewed a button on a groomsman’s tux, etc. etc. But most importantly, she kept us and our wedding party on schedule, which is a feat in and of itself. Because of this, we were able to get everything done that we wanted to get done, without having to “scratch” anything-or make our guests sit and wait for us to get our act together. She made our day wonderful.

Wow! What an experience Julia has given us!

Initially we were worried about us (the bride and groom) living in separate states and our wedding planner living half way across the country but Julia led us gracefully and seamlessly through every step. She did an amazing job with helping us choose our reception venue (she visited several sites and sent us pictures!) and vendors (she has serious connections with the best of the best!!). She helped shape our vision, enhanced it with her expertise, and executed it perfectly. Better yet, she incorporated details that we never thought to include! Every vendor (caterer, DJ, photographer, florist, linens, etc) exceeded our dreams of perfection! Her knowledge of the industry and expectations for excellent service really made our event over the top amazing!

The day of the reception was absolute perfection. Although we were anticipating some issues (who doesn’t!), we were relieved and happy that nothing went wrong (Julia assured us many times that everything would be perfect…she was right!) The experience was perfectly timed, perfectly, organized (Julia’s organization is unmatched!), and perfectly executed! Every guest had an incredible time from the start of cocktail hour through to the final dance. This is most definitely due to Julia’s exemplary planning, organizational skills, and attention to detail.

Julia not only met our expectations but she exceeded them one hundred times over!! She provides stellar customer service and she is flexible, accommodating, friendly, attentive, and kind. She has a wonderful energy about her and she cares about the happiness and satisfaction of her clients. She made herself available to us morning, evenings, and weekends. She helped us in very way that she could and she worked endlessly to make our day everything we wanted and more!

We cannot thank her enough!! We recommend Julia to any person for any event without any reservation!!

Julia is amazing!!!! Without her, I and the wedding would have probably been a disaster. I had Julia for the 2 weeks before the wedding, and for the wedding day. She meet with us and got right to work. Talking and meeting with all the vendors for us and making sure everyone was on the same page and knew what they needed to do and where they need to be. Julia not only saved us money but also our sanity. With her directing the show we were able to enjoy the day without a care in the world. Even after the wedding she is still by our side helping us tie up some things. There are not enough words to describe how grateful and lucky we are that Julia came into the picture.

We hired Julia for the week before our wedding and the day of. She went above and beyond! From the moment we hired her until the day of our wedding she was in contact with us and helping us with whatever we needed and everything in between. She was so organized, creative, on top of all our vendors, and very detailed! She was awesome when it came to coordinating our rehearsal and our wedding day. Everything went smoothly and flowed exactly how we planned! Most of all she was fabulous to work with and a lot of fun! We cannot say enough about her and would hire her again! THANK YOU so much Julia!

Julia is a mastermind and a delight to work with! I’ve seen her in action with brides and grooms, and she develops such a great bond with them. As another professional in the wedding industry, I wish that I could work with her on every event. She is detailed and organized. She keeps the day moving and her energy and enthusiasm are contagious. I sure hope to work with her again in the near future

Jessica and Dan

We were so lucky to have Julia from the beginning of all the planning until the end of our wedding night. Our first meeting we had with Julia we instantly knew we found the perfect planner! Julia was so great with thinking of all the little details of what go into all of the planning and took all the stress off of us. She was great with staying very organized and took care of all the vendors. We cannot thank Julia enough for everything that she did for us and we appreciate it so much. She really made all of our dreams come true! Thank you Julia for everything. You were the perfect event planner and you are a dear friend! We love you!

Our ceremony and reception were a bit unconventional, but we had a pretty clear vision in mind. We used Julia for the rehearsal and wedding day. In less than two hours in person, and just a few emails, Julia was able to carry out our vision with warmth, humor, and promptness. During the rehearsal, she worked well with our singer to make sure the flow of the processional was smooth. On the wedding day, she made sure to put our family and friends at ease, and made sure all our vendors had everything they needed. Julia worked hard to make sure we were stress-free and enjoying ourselves–from placing champagne and food in our hands, to taking our wedding gifts and wedding cake to our home during the reception. We would definitely recommend her.

Julia came into our wedding picture at the eleventh hour. The wedding planner we booked had to cancel a little over a month before our wedding and that’s when Julia stepped in to handle our day. We still can’t believe how lucky we were! Our wedding was in Minneapolis but we live in Miami so coordinating all the details from across the country was not always easy – Julia met with our vendors and did walk-throughs at all of our sites. She had all the details organized in no time at all! Our day went off without a hitch thanks to her excellent organization and calm demeanor. Thank you Julia!
