Julie Evans is a contributor for The Knot, where she writes wistfully about all the amazing wedding options out there today, from the perfect earrings to honeymoon outfits and beyond. Though she’s been happily married for years, she adores weddings and would love to get married many more times. Instead, she writes vicariously about wedding topics, hoping to help others put on the wedding of their dreams.

When she’s not writing, you’ll likely find her on the tennis court desperately trying to perfect an overhead smash or walking her dog, Cooper. She has two kids and the aforementioned husband. Where they all live currently is a long story.
