Hi, my name is Julie. I’m a Phoenix native with deep roots here in the valley and am a graduate of Grand Canyon University (Lopes up 🤘). My husband and I have been married for 21 years and together have 4 kids.

I have a background in Eduction, Marketing & Community Advocacy and owned a business in the wedding and event industry for 10 years. Jamila and I are also the co-founders of Parties For Purpose, a non-profit established to throw parties for kids in need in the valley.

For me, there’s no greater feeling than when we bring to life our client’s vision for their celebrations. Watching sketches and plans come to life and seeing the excitement on their faces during the big reveal, never gets old!

Hey there! My name is Katherine and I am a California native, wife, and mommy to my mini goldendoodle.
As a lover of all things creative, I have years of experience in event planning from corporate events to weddings and other life celebrations. I am also a lifestyle photographer here in Arizona, capturing important milestones and memories for others. I believe life is worth celebrating and I value helping others savor in special moments, whether that is through the lens or through creating unforgettable event experiences.

Hello! My name is Kathryn but my friends call me Katie or Kat. I’m originally from the Pacific Northwest and have lived on both sides of the country in the last five years. I have been in the event industry since 2014 with my first party I organized being my senior prom! I fell in love with all aspects of planning and organizing events, making client’s vision and dreams come true, and watching them relax and enjoy the event. I believe there’s no milestone too small to celebrate and I love getting to be apart of celebrating life with our clients!
