  • 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.

  • My wedding was delayed twice because of Covid and not only did working with Julie keep me grounded during all the uncertainty, she worked with me anytime I needed her, we pivoted plans multiple times, and my wedding was INCREDIBLE because of her dedication to ensuring we finally had the day we had been waiting for. It was flawless, and it’s amazing she was able to pull that off for us given all of the complexities of the times. Couldn’t recommend her more.

    Emma, THANK YOU so much for writing this...and, I didnt even ask you to! You were an absolute dream to ride along with on the rollercoaster ride of planning an indoor wedding downtown in Covid! Your grace, kindness and resilience were so beautiful. I was as excited as you were to see your day come together so incredibly perfect! I adore you sweet girl!!

  • Amazing wedding/event planner. She exceeded my expectations and went above and beyond for us. She always picked up my phone call, answered any questions we had, changed whatever we wanted changed and she’s super easy to talk too. Not only did she pull off our wedding she pulled off our COVID wedding... She deserves an award for being the best wedding planner & also a glass of wine for all that she puts up with so we don’t have too!

    oh my goodness, So NICE...thank you Sam! You two stayed so calm thru the ups and downs that 2020 brought to us with planning your big day. You had a beautiful vision for your day & it was a JOY to put the right vendors in place to make sure that we delivered. BEST part...you & Aaron became life friends to me, adore you guys!

  • Julie quite literally made my dreams come true. When I first began planning my wedding I was not sold on the idea of a wedding planner, I was trying to keep costs down and keep things simple. Looking back on it now, there is NO way I could have pulled this off without Julie by my side. I had a rather long engagement and had to postpone my wedding because of COVID, change dates twice, change venue spaces, drastically reduce my guest list and reprioritize. Julie was "on it" every step of the way. She was flexible, constantly in touch, double and triple checked things and really listened to me. She also had realllly good recommendations for other vendors, like my floral stylist Kay from Flowers For You PDX. I get overwhelmed easily and Julie is so experienced, comforting, relaxed, organized, funny. She kept me laughing and chill the whole time. On my wedding day I didn't have to stress about anything, which was the most important thing to me. I enjoyed my day with my husband and family an... Read more

  • Julie is the best! She was so thoughtful, organized, had great vendors to recommend, flexible, and a true joy to be around around. We had to change our wedding plans multiple times due to COVID, and Julie was there to help talk things through with me, and was on it when my husband and I decided to have a small ceremony/food truck after instead of our full planned catered reception. She was focused on the details, and was so helpful the day of. I do not know how I would have navigated a wedding (let alone a COVID wedding) without Julie. She is wonderful, and you will love working with her.

    Thanks so much for your kind words sweet Kennedy! Was so happy to get you down that aisle, and although the guest count was so much smaller, it was an absolute blast! You obviously kept the FUN guests ON the list (ha ha)

  • 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

  • My daughter’s big was a great success and worry free because of Julie’s expert planning. 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. Every meeting with her was very productive and we were left with confidence that all of our ideas will come together. She was instrumental in the success of our daughter’s big day. I enjoyed working with her and highly recommended Julie for all your event needs.

  • 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

  • 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.
