  • Julie is incredibly organized and made our wedding worry free and AMAZING. She knows her vendors well and goes the extra mile for her clients. Of all of the vendors, Julie was the best value for the money and the most crucial to making the day a success.

  • We couldn't imagine planning and executing our wedding without Julie. She saved us so much stress and made our wedding day absolutely perfect. Julie is attentive to details, responsive, knows what it takes to make a memorable and enjoyable wedding, and has a network of the best vendors in Portland. At first, we were hesitant about hiring a wedding coordinator, but looking back we could not have pulled off our wedding without Julie. It was best investment we made. Hire Julie, you won't regret it!

  • Julie Weiss of Gratitude Event Planning was an absolute joy to work with and made our wedding day perfect. And by perfect, I truly mean it. Not a single hitch. She is extremely organized, experienced, and fun. She is timely in her responses and was always available for a check-in or vendor meeting. I can’t recommend Gratitude enough! Julie is an absolute delight.

  • While they may have different styles, Julie was able to make my daughter's slightly complicated wedding vision a beautiful reality. She was there at every step with insightful advice and amazing ideas. She was a true badass when we needed it. She provided a calming, solid presence during all the planning, and was a delight the day of the event. Julie and the Gratitude Team could not have been more wonderful to work with!

  • I know it looks unbelievable that someone could get 5 stars in every category, but it’s spot on for Julie. After things fell through with our original coordinator, she took over 30 days out from our wedding date and executed our vision to perfection. She’s so quick to respond to any email/text, that you feel like you’re her only client. She has great attention to detail and helped us make decisions on elements that we hadn’t planned on our own or even thought of. The only regret I have from our wedding is not hiring Julie earlier.

  • Julie was a true godsend! Although my daughter and I both have planned many events, having someone else carry out the plan on the day of the Wedding was priceless! The communicatuon was quick and thorough at every step. She recommended things we had not thought of and understood our vision from the start. Julie is a take charge person and has the experience to handle any situation that comes up. Hands down we couldn’t have done it without her. Julie is well connected in the industry and can also get you competitive pricing with many vendors. We were able to enjoy every minute of our daughters special day which is exactly how it should be. Julie is a true professional and we would highly recommend her to anyone planning a Wedding, the sooner the better. Liz B

She was able to work within our budget and manage all the different personalities in a professional manner. Julie was very responsive to our questions had great ideas and guidance.

  • From the beginning of our wedding planning Julie made everything so perfect and so EASY on us, we never had to stress about anything with her by our side! From communication with vendors, set up, timeline and day of coordination she did such an amazing job so that we were able to sit back and enjoy our special day. She went above and beyond for us, we couldn’t recommend her and Gratitude Event Planning enough!

    thanks so much Megan. YOU guys made my job so easy, not to mention provided my portfolio with stunning pics of your cute little family of 3! I watch the video of Hayden bopping down the aisle on my phone, often. I loved everything about your day..and, love you kiddos too!

  • Words could not even describe how thankful I am for Julie! Throughout the whole wedding process she was so helpful, and so amazing to work with! I am a pretty detailed oriented and particular person (a blessing and a curse) and when I got engaged wedding planning quickly because SOOO overwhelming. I knew the vision I had in mind, but had the hardest time finding vendors that matched what I was looking for. When scrolling Insta I found Julie’s page and was blown away at how glamorous, magical, and beautiful her weddings are! She created events that are so perfect, down to the details! I fell in love and was thrilled to start working with her! I love Julie because she is welcoming of all ideas, and really plans the day around YOUR specific needs. She is delightfully creative and saves the day with the best ideas! She works within the price range, and finds things that fit within budget. We truly could rely on Julie for it all! My wedding was the most perfect day, and we could not have... Read more

  • Julie was real relief as we prepared for our son’s wedding. She listened to what we wanted and the culture touch we needed for the wedding. She had in-depth knowledge of the venue, vendors and choices we could make for our budget. She was very organized and ahead of the game, so we could relax. If we needed something, she made it happen. She was very professional, thorough, good listener. Thank you Julie! You are awesome!

  • Julie was the absolute best! We hired her to be our day of wedding coordinator. From beginning to end she was amazing. She spent an hour free of charge on the phone for our consultation, and then met us again in person to go over everything before we even officially hired her. She was organized, efficient, communicative, sweet, talented, and overall very skilled at her job. She made our lives so much less stressed as she walked us through each step. She also went and visited the venue with me (which was an hour away). She did this just to get the lay of the land. She also drove up again the day before the wedding to run through the rehearsal (again, an hour away). Now for the day of... It snowed the evening before our wedding, so the roads were a bit dangerous. She made it up there and stayed from beginning to end. She listened to all of our visions and helped to make them happen. Most wedding coordinators don’t dedicate an entire day from morning until the party is over. She went... Read more

  • One of the first things Julie said to me was, "I do this because it's my passion." She genuinely wants to make your dream wedding come true - for us, she made extra efforts to know us, our story, and create a lasting relationship. We chose Julie as our planner because where other Wedding Planner Companies felt very businesslike, Julie made things personal and so was a pleasure to work with over 6 months. It felt like she was my aunt: a really funny, caring, and on-top-of-her-game aunt! I always had faith she knew what she was doing and never felt stressed in the days leading up to the wedding or on the day of. She handled her team and guided the wedding venue with great skill so that everything went so smoothly. All of this is possible because Julie works alone. She takes on only a few weddings each year. She's not lying: this is her passion, she's not doing it for the money. I was surprised we were able to book her - after her years of working under some of the biggest vendors and... Read more

  • We hired Julie to help with our August 2019 wedding and it was one of the BEST decisions we made! We chose a unique venue that was completely off-the-grid, which provided a unique set of challenges. Julie was a logistics QUEEN and ensured all of our worries (and then some!) were taken care of. She was constantly thinking of things we hadn't. Her communication both with us, and other vendors was seamless and she went above and beyond to ensure everything was tucked and tied before our big day. The day itself ran incredibly smoothly, all thanks to Julie and her team. It's evident that she truly cares about her clients, and it shows in everything she does. We love Julie and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for help! Our wedding was of the best days, and there's no way it would have been the same without her.
