  • Down The Aisle Events was absolutely amazing- do yourself a favor and hire them! Julia was so great to work with and I was able to be fully present without any worries on my wedding day. She took care of any kinks that came up and made sure everything was absolutely perfect the entire day. She set up our decorations, which were AMAZING. Coordinated everything with the vendors, was there for the rehearsal and everything. During post-ceremony pictures she even made sure we got a plate of our food from the cocktail hour and the entire bridal party all had drinks! At the reception, she always made sure the groom and I had drinks (and water), that we got to eat, and the bartenders all knew what we were having. It was so important to me that I be able to enjoy my wedding day fully without any distractions, and Down The Aisle Events made this possible! Do yourself a favor and HIRE THEM!

  • Hiring Julia and DTAE was one of the best decisions my fiance and I made when planning our wedding. Julia confirmed everything with our vendors beforehand, created a detailed itinerary of our wedding day, and handled complicated family dynamics with grace so that we could relax and enjoy our day. Julia's day-of suitcase was a life saver when my bridesmaids and I were getting ready (tummy troubles and wardrobe malfunctions were solved with her kit, seriously a blessing). We ended moving our ceremony inside due to rain and Julia completely handled coordinating the moving process with our venue. Julia was reliable, easy to work with, and truly a friend by the end of the wedding and I would recommend her and DTAE to all of my friends with no reservations! I would absolutely love to work with her again.

  • I can't say enough good things about Julia. She was an absolute pleasure from start to finish. We contacted her to provide day-of coordination so that I wouldn't have to worry about anything. I couldn't tell you if there were any hiccups on our wedding day - everything was seamless from our perspective and it was a zero stress event. I was able to relax and enjoy. She was phenomenal and I would absolutely work with her again.

  • Julia literally knew to think of everything. I was having such a hard time figuring out details and what I needed to take into consideration, and she always knew exactly what to do. She also took all my decorations and made our cocktail hour and reception hall so beautiful with almost no direction!

  • I was able to enjoy the day and relax since Julia and her team were "at the helm" . She took care of any problems that arose and did it in a professional and kind manner. She was always smiling and very accommodating to guests wishes. Even guests commented on her relaxed manner and attention to detail. She is definitely a wonderful choice for any type of wedding or event.

  • I am so incredibly thankful for Julia Define and Down the Aisle Events! I could not have made it to my wedding day or through my wedding day without she and her team. Julia was originally hired as my day of coordinator, but quickly turned into so much more. She provided planning support throughout the entire process and went above and beyond the "typical" duties that most coordinators include. I always knew that I could count on her for her guidance, wedding expertise, and calming support to cheer me on! My wedding day was perfect with her team by my side, and I knew that I didn't have to worry about a thing. Our wedding day was filled with intricate details that were all so important to my husband and I and her team handled them all with ease and included some of their own special touches into our design. Hiring Julia's team was by far one of the best decisions we made when planning for our special day. For all of the brides that are looking for a wonderful team to help prepare them f... Read more

  • We used Down the Aisle Events for partial planning leading up to the wedding and on the wedding day itself. Julia did a very good job. The wedding was perfect! And her suggestions for the reception were helpful!

  • Julia was a delight to work with. She is highly organized, which made everything run smoothly on wedding day. My then-fiancee/now-wife and I did not have to worry about a thing. On top of being great at her job, Julia was a pleasure to be around and made everyone in the bridal party, and our parents, feel at ease. I can't recommend her enough.

  • My wedding day would not have been the amazing, incredible, joyful day that it was without Julia. Having been a part of many weddings, I know how hectic and chaotic things can get - and I've seen my fair share of stressed brides and family running around making sure every vendor has been paid and troubleshooting random issues that come up (shuttle buses, missing decorations, you name it). While we had a clear vision of what we wanted our wedding day to look and feel like, I knew we would need help bringing it to life. When Julia asked me to describe what I hoped for in a planner, I basically just said "I just want myself, my fiance and our family to be calm, relaxed, and present the whole day". Having Julia there made it possible for that wish to come true. She was in close contact with me in the weeks leading up to the ceremony - assuring me that she had every tiny detail covered and bringing up things I hadn't even thought of. She carefully reviewed every contract, timelin... Read more

  • Our daughter was married in September. Julia and her team served as our "day of" planners and they were amazing! Any time anyone had a question, I said "let me ask Julia" and it was taken care of. Having her there allowed all of us to relax and just enjoy the day. She handled all vendor gratuities, distributed a wedding day schedule to the families and wedding party that was incredibly detailed and left nothing to chance, coordinated with vendors to make sure everything was set up exactly as Amy wished (I saw Julia moving banquet tables around herself at one point) and collected all leftover items at the end of the evening. It was a wonderful day and Julia was a big part of that.

  • I first met Julia at my nieces wedding. To be honest, I couldn't imagine why you would need to pay someone to help. After working with Julia And her assistant I decided I most definitely wouldn't want to navigate our upcoming family wedding without her. I had already overseen two of our daughters weddings and was thrilled to have Julia take the lead. I have to mention our wedding was Dutch/American(many international guest)with a mix of traditions and lasted all day. I would hire Julia again, she is a delight to work with and knows her stuff!!!! Thank you Julia!!!!

  • Julia is excellent! I will say to begin with that I am a tough customer, and I required a lot of Julia's help in the year planning our wedding. She was always responsive to my questions, and she was willing to switch tactics to suit my needs. The month before the wedding is when she really shines. She was so organized with her outlines and questions-she had considered things we had never even thought of! She was also able to advocate for us when we had difficulty with one of our other vendors. My husband was dubious of the need for a wedding planner, but after our walk-through with the venue and caterer, he changed his tune! We were so pleased with her professionalism and we felt confident that she would be able to handle everything the day of the wedding. We were right! I showed her the decor I had and what I was thinking, and the venue looked even better than what I would have expected. Everything ran smoothly without a hitch.
