"We had the amazing opportunity to work with Juliet & Lou for our daughter's wedding. To say they did a great job would be an understatement. They went above and beyond to make every detail perfect. They were professional and warm. No request was overlooked, and they truly heard our vision from the very first meeting. The day was perfect and no detail or request was overlooked. Everyone at the wedding was blown away by the florals, design and application. After our unbelievable experience with J&L I will always make sure that anyone I talk to about their wedding, brings on Juliet & Lou! THEY SIMPLY ARE THE BEST OUT THERE!" -Mother of the Bride, 2020
“I simply cannot imagine my wedding day and planning season without juliet + lou! This sister dou is absolutely amazing. They are so genuine, caring, organized, and creative. They went above and beyond to make sure that our wedding day was free of stress. Not only that, but they completely blew me away with their ability to take my vision for decor to a whole new level of beauty. With that said, I would recommend juliet + lou to everyone and anyone! They are truly a gift to the wedding and event planning industry.” -E+N, 2015
“These two were INCREDIBLE! Any time we reminisce on our amazing wedding day, we talk about how phenomenal Elsa and Hannah were and how there’s absolutely no way we could’ve gotten any of it done without them. Any time I freaked out they knew exactly what to say/do to help soothe my nerves. It was wonderful going into my wedding day as relaxed as can be because I knew that everything would be taken care of flawlessly. As for the aesthetics - When I first met them I described my vision in the least eloquent, most confusing way possible...and yet, when the day came they absolutely NAILED it. I had so many guests complimenting me on the florals, the set up, rentals, the general decor, everything. And I can’t tell you how convenient it was to have them also be in charge of the florals - having less vendors just made things so much easier/smoother… I can’t say enough good things. They’re not just great business women, they’re phenomenal human beings. If you’re looking for someone to help you enjoy wedding planning - look no further than Elsa and Hannah!” -Z+B, 2017
“Oh my gosh, where do I even start. Now that the wedding is over, we are sad not to see Hannah and Elsa on a regular basis. We hired two complete strangers and came out of the experience with two new friends. Hannah and Elsa both are so talented in unique ways. Elsa was the primary contact in the beginning, helping with scheduling, pricing, and planning everything to the very last detail and minute. As the wedding grew closer, I worked with Hannah who has impeccable taste and a true talent for seeing a vision inside a bride’s mind and making it a reality. At our first meeting they asked all the right questions about what we both wanted. They also accompanied us to meet potential vendors, where they asked questions that I wouldn’t have thought to ask myself. A few months in, they laid out a complete design plan for us: they designed the space, created a design board and picked colors, priced different rental options, and broke every service down by price. My husband and I were blown away by how detailed everything was. The day of, the space looked incredible. They did our flowers as well, and they were absolutely STUNNING. We also booked Hannah and Elsa really early, and I’m sure they spent more time with us just because of how far in advance we booked. Despite that, they quickly responded to all of our questions and were always willing to meet up or research stuff for us. I know some planners cap meetings or planning hours, but we never ran into that issue with their all inclusive design package. Throughout the process they were extremely flexible and always willing to work around our crazy schedules. They made us feel like we were there only client, even though we know they were planning multiple weddings and have busy lives of their own. There is no way I would have been able to plan a wedding without them, they saved me so much time, stress, and money. We highly, highly, highly recommend!” -R+C, 2017
“Elsa and Hannah are the GREATEST joy to work with! Not only are they incredibly organized and thorough but they're calm, collected and do everything with smiles and grace. The last few months of my wedding planning were so stressful and I just couldn't keep up with everything and they swopped in and completely saved the day (and my sanity). Elsa responds to emails immediately and communicates with other vendors promptly. I felt like I could completely trust my day in their hands. On the day of, I didn't have to think twice about anything because they were so organized and on top of things. They helped me create a timeline and they took everything in their own hands so I didn't have to do a single thing. They're the absolute best!!!” -M+B, 2018
“I have thought about our wedding day over and over again and I still can’t believe how absolutely flawless everything went (or so it seemed to us!). I am under the impression that most brides don’t get the luxury of having a wedding, from planning to the actual day, free of stress like I did and that was because of all of the hard work you did. From giving vendor recommendations, contacting vendors on our behalf, and ensuring everything was in order, you went above and beyond for us which made our day so special and unique. I really appreciated your overall thoroughness as it put me at ease throughout the entire process; it was so nice knowing I didn’t have to worry about anything the day of, and seeing all of the decor and florals put together was more beautiful than I could have imagined. Most girls dream of their wedding day their whole lives and I can honestly say our wedding exceeded my expectations! The week after the wedding, [my husband] and I were bombarded with phone calls and text messages from guests who wanted us to know that it was the best wedding they had ever attended— all I could tell them was that it was because of our amazing team!” -K+C, 2019
