Hitched by Joelle is a wedding planning company based out of Edmonton, AB. Joelle Tripp is the creative force behind the company and has a true vocation for designing sophisticated events and immortalising the most important day in a couples life. Having being involved in event organization on a large scale, she has refined her talents to focus exclusively on weddings.

Hitched by Joelle offers a range of services:
Full Coordination: My ALL TIME favourite service! My Full Coordination services allows me to become your new best buddy. I work SO closely with the two of you and on designing and creating a wedding that is essentially a “custom fit” and we get started as soon as you say “GO”! I’m here to walk you through every nook and cranny of the wedding planning process (and trust me, there’s a lot!) which allows you both to enjoy the big and small moments leading up to your epic day. In true Joelle lingo: I’m the “ranch to your chicken wings” or the “baileys to your coffee”, it’s just not the same without me (are you busting out laughing yet?? Me too!). But seriously, this is all about creating a stress-free experience for my couples because contrary to what some may think, it’s more than hiring a dj or band, having good food and throwing down a few tablecloths. Weddings simply put are not what they were 10, even 5 years ago. They have several moving parts and can be very sophisticated when it comes to the execution. I’ll walk you through selecting your venues, determine your wedding day style and colour palette, prepare your wedding budget, match you up with top wedding vendors who you can trust to carry out your vision and be your biggest support system throughout it all. I’m going to show up on your wedding day to execute all of our amazing plans, keep an eye on the timing of all the events and ensure that everything runs poetically. Every wedding varies when it comes to the scale/size as well as its. overall needs so I’ll give you custom quote of what a Full Coordination’s price point would be when you come for a cocktail.
Special & Corporate Event Planning: We love a good party, and, let’s be honest, who doesn’t?? Our team travels wherever we need to be and we’re happy to customize each clients needs specific to the event they’re hosting. There’s always something to celebrate and we’re definitely the type of people who think outside the box and thrive on breathing a breath of fresh into an otherwise stale, “been there done that” type of event. We’re happy to handle any events needs such as design + decor to guest list management, setup + takedown, management of contracts, production and everything in-between. Let us know what you need and we will make sure that all t’s are crossed and i’s are dotted.
You’ll go from “what the hell do I do with _____? (insert everything your currently struggling with) ” to becoming a bride who knows exactly what she wants because in my personal opinion, bridezilla’s don’t exist when they are well informed, have a solid game plan and know the in’s and outs of all things wedding related. See you there girlfriend

Amazing to work with!
Joelle helped make my vision come to life through just an online consult! I was having trouble picturing everything we were planning and she went through it all and made it even better than we could have ever imagined. She has also been a huge factor in calming the anxieties around COVID and wedding planning during a pandemic. 100% recommend for any of her services! Personally I booked a Hitched Hangout and was part of her Badass Bride Group. The value from those 2 things alone were off the charts. She is an awesome human and is amazing at her job.Sent on 13/01/2021

Hitched Hangout with Joelle
I came across Joelle at my cousin’s wedding that I was a bridesmaid of. She was coordinating the wedding and I can’t lie when I tell you, from the minute we met I could tell she was an absolute gem, and we connected right away. My wedding was coming up the following year and after learning about her services, I knew I had to sit down with Joelle for a Hitched Hangout. My worries regarding my wedding were mostly surrounded by my lack of creativity when trying to bring the décor all together, as well as the dreaded topic of dealing with COVID-19 at our wedding. Before talking anything wedding, she asked, “Well, what are we drinking!?” MY KIND OF GAL.Sent on 30/09/2020
After my Hitched Hangout with Joelle, which really just felt like talking with an old friend, I felt like she had lifted much of the weight off my shoulders with her guidance and advice. She is truly a breath of fresh air!! I am a very Type A person, and I have been giving myself headache after headache trying to navigate the world of wedding planning during a global pandemic. However, after sitting down with Joelle, I feel confident in my ability to continue planning this wedding with a little “Joelle magic”. ;) She has given me so much clarity, and has helped me allow myself to claim this wedding as mine, along with my fiancé of course, (haha) and to not apologize for the decisions we make for our big day. I am extremely thankful to have had those couple hours with her to hash out every single worry/doubt/idea that I had in mind. Aside from being amazing at what she does, she is such an amazing person and makes every moment so much fun! I can’t thank Joelle enough for this service she provides and would highly highly recommend it to any Bride and Groom!

I am soooooo grateful for Joelle
I had been very overwhelmed and stressed about centrepieces and linen choices. Pinterest had been my best friend but also my worst nightmare with figuring out what to do for them. But then came Joelle... She let me tell her all the different ideas I had found and was able to take aspects of my fiancé’s and I’s likes, as well as ideas I had had and create something unique and beautiful. She helped direct me with the colour scheme and reminded me not to overthink the little things. Leaving our little confab, a weight had been lifted. I felt peace and a new excitement about our wedding day! I would 100% recommend Joelle!Sent on 27/01/2020
Hitched by Joelle's reply:Can you believe we crushed all of that in two hours?! WOWZA'S!! Had so much fun with you and the entourage girlfriend ;) and I'm SO excited for you to be working with your dream florist again! This wedding is going to be 🔥🔥🔥

Joelle was an AWESOME Wedding Planner!
Joelle did an amazing job with my wedding! The day of the event everything fell into place and everyone had an amazing time. She's super organized with providing spreadsheets and timelines. We live in Camrose and she was very accommodating by driving here to meet with us once a month face to face to discuss each detail. I would highly recommend her to anyone getting married as their wedding planner!Sent on 27/03/2018
Hitched by Joelle's reply:Paige, thank you so much!! This was so great to read this morning. I still can't believe how fantastic that day was! From the perfect weather, to the most hilarious MC's I've listened to to date, to the most incredible reception room transformation that I've been apart of--it was all absolutely amazing! So glad we got to share in this day with you and Sean, cheers to the Willms!

Hey hey!! So nice to meet you friend, I’m Joelle and I am the owner of Hitched by Joelle.
Alright so first things first…I’m not your typical wedding + event planner. In fact, I’ve never been described more accurately than one of my brides Cat who said: “Joelle is bride valium! She’s also the most perfect mix of your outrageously fun and trucker mouthed cousin from the country and your cosmopolitan bff who gasps in delight at all your over the top ideas!” I told you I’m not your typical wedding + event planner! Here’s the thing, you’ve probably seen the movie “the Wedding Planner” with J-Lo and Matthew McConaughey and you may have seen images of what a wedding + event planner looks like online but I’m the furthest thing from any of these representations. I don’t carry a clipboard, I don’t always wear a head set (in fact have only used them once to date) and I DEFINITELY don’t use Dippity Do gel to slick my hair back into a low bun!
I graduated with my Business Degree from the University of Alberta Augustana Campus back in 2013 and I wasn’t 100% sure where I was headed. At that time, creating lists was my super power, whenever a FREE download of printable drink tags came out from Martha Stewart, I stashed it away in my files and I really, reaaaaaaaaally loved to host parties. Looking back now, I laugh because I mean how much more obvious could it have been?! I wasn’t able to see it at that time and began getting my feet wet working with the Edmonton Marathon, FaBLOOMosity, KH Events & Decor, and Big Valley Jamboree. My involvement in these companies and events opened my eyes to an industry that I couldn’t wait to dive deeper into. One thing led to the next and I found myself signing off on my incorporation papers for Hitched by Joelle in 2014 to begin planning my own weddings + events. *insert MASSIVE shriek of joy in that moment*
I have the best job in the entire world. I really really do. Being a wedding + event planner gives me the incredible opportunity time after time to really make an impact with something as simple as my creativity, and I think that’s my defining difference when you look at what I do and create. 99% of the time it will be something you haven’t seen before and that’s always what I’m talking about. Maybe some are out there to copy and paste but that sure as hell isn’t my style. Weddings and events are moments of pure magic and excitement for anyone attending, and the sheer fact that I get to work so closely with my clients dreaming everything up with them and being able to have a hand in the design and execution of it all is what I call a gift. Their guests are excited to attend, they’re of great spirits while at the actual wedding or event itself and the excitement continues on even after the wedding or event is finished when someone asks “so how was that wedding/event that you were at over the weekend?!” *insert a speechless human ;)*
My passion for the wedding + event industry is fuelled by a family that have marriages that have lasted 61 years (granny + gramps) and goin’ on 38 years (mom n’ dad). Love is the greatest gift of all and this has always been one of my own guiding principles. It’s no coincidence to me that my job blends my ability to be creative and my desire to perpetuate even more love into the world via weddings and events. I’m not afraid of hard work or getting my hands dirty. I’ll be the first to lend you a hand and I am definitely the chattiest of Cathy’s (consider yourself warned). Thanks for being here friend, come say hey!
