WOW! I cannot say enough good things about Julie James. She creates the most magical floral arrangements I’ve ever seen in my life. She’s thoughtful, friendly, hilarious and so easy to work with. My wedding had to be postponed from May 22, 2020...
to July 24, 2020. Which forced us to change up the floral arrangements two separate times before I was crushed with the news that I needed to reduce my headcount to 50. We got married at The Pennsylvanian and since Allegheny County only allowed gatherings of 50 outside, that meant everything would have to move out into the rotunda. Once again, forcing us to switch up everything we had planned. Julie was so calm throughout the whole process.
As a bride going through COVID, you almost have this mentality of “I’ll believe it when I see it” when it comes to actually reaching your wedding day. When I received my bouquet at the hotel, I cried. I was so stressed and sad about everything I had gone through with our wedding and it’s really hard to let your guard down. In that moment, suddenly, I felt excited, happy, emotional, and most importantly like a bride. I finally realized in that moment I was getting married and IT WAS HAPPENING and it was about to be MAGICAL.
Then as soon as I got to the venue, I cried again. I walked into nothing short of a scene plucked out of a fairy tale. I cried so much that day because of the work Julie and her team put in, that literally my fake eyelashes needed to be reapplied. It was STUNNING. I was in shock at the level of detail and expertise. She went above and beyond to make my vision come true. I felt like a princess. I couldn’t stay focused because I kept starring at the arrangements, that’s how gorgeous everything turned out.
Her bio doesn’t say this, but she’s a creative GENIUS.
If you want a florist who is going to go above and beyond for you, no matter what... hire Julie James. She turned my COVID wedding into the wedding of my dreams and I’ll never be able to thank her enough!

The only bummer was a few flowers (anemones and dahlias) didn’t hold up more than an hour since we were outside in 95 degree heat for an hour for our first look and photos. My bouquet looked a little wilted and my husband’s boutonnière had turned brown by the end of the ceremony, but I’m sure nobody noticed. She worked at my venue for 3+ hours to construct my floral columns and other hanging pieces throughout the venue. She definitely helped bring my vision to life, and I am hoping my husband will contact her for special events in the future. ;) Thanks again, Julie!!
