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!Sent on 17/09/2018

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.Sent on 19/08/2017
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!!Sent on 25/07/2017
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.Sent on 10/09/2017
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 Young Weddings's reply:Thank you for your kind words & thoughtful review, Samantha! Your wedding day was absolute perfection and we were so blessed to be a part of it, thank you for the honour of allowing us to help with the day. XO

I cannot recommend JYW enough!!! I was a COVID-19 bride and not only did Julianne help us plan the wedding of our dreams (pre-pandemic), she also helped us navigate all of the changes that 2020 brought. We wanted to go ahead with the wedding, and Julianne completely revamped the whole thing just a couple months before the big day. Though our wedding was not what we had initially planned, I can truly say that it was absolutely perfect in every way (the dream wedding we didn't even know we wanted). It was small, intimate, and all about the love :) Julianne listened to my vision and remembered every detail - our decor was SPOT ON (I'm still gushing).Sent on 22/08/2020
I also worked with Stephanie and Aimsley who are two of the most wonderful and kind ladies you'll ever meet. They took care of everything the day-of and made the whole day stress-free. I felt so comfortable with them and everything went off without a hitch. It was seriously magical.
Thank you to everyone at JYW for bringing our dream to life.
Julianne Young Weddings's reply:Hello Erin - Thank you so so much for taking the time to leave us this incredible review! You and Jonathan (& your lovely mother Heather) were an absolute dream to work with, and took the rollercoaster of planning a wedding amid COVID19 so gracefully. Thank you for having us be a part of your perfect day - We are so happy your friends & family got to celebrate in the most beautifully intimate way. We too will cherish your dream wedding for years to come. Love and hugs from the whole team, Julianne, Aimsley & Stephanie
