    Cannot recommend Julianne Young Weddings Inc enough!

    There are not enough kind words I can say about working with the Julianne Young Weddings team, especially Stephanie LaGrange. Having a wedding planner who just “gets you” and feels like they truly care about you is so crucial to have! I personally have never been someone who has had a Pinterest board for my wedding and did not even know where to begin especially with it being a destination wedding for us. We initially interviewed with Julianne and immediately felt her radiating passion for her work and desire to get to know us. I already knew from that conversation that her team was going to be the perfect fit for us! Stephanie from JYW was absolutely a JOY to work with these past couple years! She made our big day better than we could have even imagined despite being a COVID couple and struggling through all the different changes/regulations. We originally were supposed to get married in 2021 but last year presented many challenges that we ended up rescheduling to 2022 instead. I am thrilled to say it was 100000% worth the wait and Stephanie was all to thank for that! We got married in St. Mary’s in Banff and had our reception at the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise and our guests are still talking about how beautiful it was and how every detail was perfection. I get stressed very easily but on our wedding day, Stephanie and the JYW team gave me such comfort and confidence knowing that the day was going to go smoothly! Throughout this process, Stephanie was fun, professional, poise, and so very caring! We will miss talking to them so much and really cannot thank them enough for planning and designing the best day of our lives!

    Last stop for the best planners in the game!

    I cannot express how lucky we were to work with JYW -- Julianne and Stephanie are amazing to work with and they made both the planning and wedding week as easy and fun as possible.

    Can't thank their team enough -- they're better than we could have ever imagined!

    Look no further for a wedding planner!

    Hiring Julianne Young Weddings as our wedding planner was the best decision we made for our wedding.

    Stephanie was a dream to work with. Navigating wedding planning during the COVID-19 pandemic was stressful, and Stephanie was emotionally supportive while working to manage every detail. If there was even a hint of an issue with a particular planning point, we would let her know and she would immediately resolve it for us. The vendors she recommended were all amazing at their craft, but also very responsive and professional.

    Our wedding at the Chateau Lake Louise was completely perfect. Stephanie’s décor vision was flawless and I would not change one thing about our wedding day. We received so many compliments from our guests, and all of the credit goes to the work Stephanie and her team put in for us.

    I would recommend Julianne Young Weddings to absolutely anyone searching for a wedding planner, and would absolutely use them again for a large scale celebration.

    Thank you so much, Stephanie!

    The perfect wedding day

    We had our wedding on July 17th, 2021, which meant we were one of the couples that had the challenge of planning a wedding during the Covid-19 pandemic. After cancelling our original venue (but keeping the same date), we moved our wedding to my husband's parent's house. We hired JYW as our wedding planner.

    We could not recommend Stephanie and her team at Julianne Young Weddings enough. Looking back, the decision to bring them on board to create our perfect wedding day was a decision that we would make time and time again. From the moment from said hello, to saying goodbye at the end of our wedding day, we knew we were in great hands. Stephanie and her team took care of absolutely everything to ensure we experienced zero stress and responsibility. We were able to fully relax and enjoy our day, while having fun along the planning journey.

    During your planning process, the best decision you can make is to hire JYW. We consider them to be our friends and we couldn't have pictured a day more perfect than ours.

    Thank you Stephanie and Aimsley

    Such a dream working with this team!

    Other than marrying Matt, this was the best decision I've ever made. Our day was an absolute dream. How it looked, felt, and how we were able to enjoy as much time as possible with our guests was is irreplaceable. The experience working with the team at JYW was so good. Planning can be super stressful but having the experience, energy and connections JYW brought to the table was incredibly helpful. The professionalism was magic, always on time for meetings, perfectly responsive to questions, approachable and so super helpful it made me excited about planning, and creating this beautiful day with them. We had help with planning, decor, and day of coordination. Most definitely recommend this talented team!

    Thank you so much for your amazing review, Erica!! We are so grateful to have gotten to work with you, and your words mean so much to us! THANK YOU!! All the best in a happy marriage ahead XOXO

    Julianne Young Weddings planned our three-day wedding event in Banff. Words cannot express how amazing Julianne was throughout the entire year and a half planning process and how grateful my husband and I were to have her and Aimsley at our wedding. When we were looking for planners, it only took a short skype phone call for my fiancé and I to fall in love with her energy and enthusiasm. My fiancé and I were living long distance and knew we would need her to plan almost every aspect of our wedding. From the get go, she offered us the flexibility to tailor her services to exactly what we needed and this separated her from all the rest. When we started planning, I had a vision in my mind of what our wedding would look like. When Julianne showed us our décor inspiration board for the first time, we were shocked at how she not only brought that vision to life but she elevated it to another level and made it more spectacular than we could have ever imagined. She always made a point to help keep things within our budget which was very important to us and all the vendors she recommended to us exceeded our expectations. This allowed us to put our complete trust in her and made the whole process so much easier. On our last skype meeting a week before our wedding, she reminded us that if we had any issues or concerns pop up, to let her know and that she will take care of it. She wanted to make sure that we enjoyed all the days leading up to our wedding day and not to stress. This one comment meant so much to us. On the day of our wedding, Julianne and Aimsley were on top of everything and so professional. Our bridal party kept telling us how amazing they were. During our room reveal when I looked at our reception decor for the first time, I burst into tears. It was so beautiful! I still tear up just thinking about that moment! You can tell Julianne lives and breathes beautiful weddings and this is absolutely what she was meant to do. She has all the elements of a perfect planner with intense organizational skills, creativity, and style. I promise, if you choose JYW to help with your special day, you will feel as thankful that you did as we do.

    Julianne Young Weddings's reply:

    Thank you so much for sharing those kind words, Patricia! We absolutely loved working with you and helping make your dream wedding vision come to life. It was a beautiful day, and an honour to help you & Francis. All the best to you in your marriage!

    Having Julianne and her team be a part of our wedding was the best decision we could have made. They were literally our sanity throughout the entire planning process. You don't think you will find anyone that cares about your wedding more than you, until you meet Julianne. She kept us on track, guiding us in finding our perfect fit for each decision, and always did all of this will so much positivity and grace. There is no part of a wedding that Julianne and her team aren't complete masters of. They made our big day (and entire four day weekend) work out flawlessly. Both of us said, "wow, we didn't pay them enough." We can't even find a way to thank them for all of the magic they made come to life!!

    Julianne Young Weddings's reply:

    Thank you for your kind words, Lauren! We are so honoured to have been a part of your incredible wedding weekend. It was a joy to work with you and create one of the most magical wedding days that we'll absolutely never forget. So much love to you both, and all the best in a happy & loving marriage

    The amount of work, dedication and time that goes into planning a wedding is quite overwhelming, and when we passed the planning ‘torch’ to Julianne a month prior to our big day, we were ready, relieved and excited.

    During our transitional meeting, Julianne made the anticipation and reality of the closely looming date so incredibly exciting, and she asked all the right questions. We walked out of that meeting and both said "thank goodness we have her"! When the big day came, Julianne was as bright, lovely and professional as ever, and was not only our planner, but a friend. She took on every role with grace and poise, and every task was thoughtfully executed. The amount of work she did on the wedding day was extraordinary. She is the hardest worker, and everything went flawlessly! We were never worried or concerned, and were left enjoying the day with our family & friends.

    A wedding planner is an absolute must, and hiring Julianne Young Weddings is a necessity. Thank you Julianne, so much for everything, and for making our wedding day the best day of our lives. You were born to be a wedding planner!

    XO Stephen & Samantha

    Julianne and her team were amazing! They were so helpful and professional from the first email to the end of our reception. They were easy to talk and plan with, they helped with decor ideas and the planning timeline. We received a timeline checklist and were given advice and recommendations for vendors, many of which we ended up booking. They were very professional on the wedding day as well, everything was timed out perfectly and they kept everyone calm and collected. Right at the end of the reception we had a couple wedding crashers and the girls were on it so fast and came to talk to us about it. They also had sandals ready for the bridesmaids at the end of the night and continued to make sure everything and everything looked great and happy! I would absolutely recommend them to anyone! They have varying packages depending on what services you need which was so helpful! Thanks girls for making our wedding perfect!!

    Julianne Young Weddings's reply:

    Thank you so much for your kind words, Elisabeth! It was a pleasure being able to design & plan your wedding - We loved working with you & Randy! So happy to hear you enjoyed the service, and thank you for taking the time to leave a review!! All the best, The JYW Team

    When preparing to get married, my now husband and I were skeptical about using such a service. Hiring a "wedding planner" seems like an outlandish and frugal expense - only for the 'rich and famous'. It wasn't until a work colleague (who also used Julianne Young Weddings) made an excellent point. Hiring Julianne Young Weddings is an insurance policy - not only that your day will run smoothly (and boy did it ever!) but the vendors you hire WANT to be hired again with JYW and be reputable to their services they provide their clients.

    The wedding industry is like no other - it's a hard pill to swallow when you're paying hard earned dollars for services long before you've ever received a service! The moment you are interviewing vendors and mention Julianne Young Weddings as your planner/coordinator - attitudes immediately shift. Their reputation is second to none - everyone wants to work with them and be associated with their name and their clients.

    We were able to hire Julianne Weddings for 'Day of Coordination' but that means so much more than day of. We had the option of having multiple meetings with the staff, prior to, including an initial meeting and transitional meetings with options for more consults on an as needed basis - with countless emails and phone calls. They were always prompt to reply and gracious and kind with their time. Never once did they ever make me feel like I was 'the crazy obnoxious bride' , that i had unreasonable requests or questions, and wanted nothing more than to bend over backwards to make sure everything was perfect! The staff on the day of (Aimsley and Sam) were with us for over 18hours! From Decor set up to take down, from sewing my dress when it ripped to knowing exactly where I left my cell phone - dealing with timelines, schedules, and the finer details that no one would think to think of - they did, and dealt with it on the spot. Never once was I panicked, concerned, flustered.....I felt so calm and everything was unbelievably well managed. Because of all of this it gave us just that much more time to enjoy OUR DAY with the people that matter most to us, our guests.

    We have said it time and again - of all the money we spent on our wedding day these were dollars VERY WELL spent - and with all the time they put in, I still don't know how they made any money off of us.

    Consultation meetings are free, you have nothing to lose and everything to gain from this service. They exceeded all of our expectations.
