Hi! My name is Joelle and I am the proud owner of ‘Hitched by Joelle’ based out of Edmonton, AB.
We all have a passion. Something that makes us tick, something that keeps our two feet on the ground running, bringing about a sense of sheer joy and contentment. Planning special events and weddings is no doubt my true passion! When I graduated with my Business Degree from the University of Alberta Augustana Campus I couldn’t decide what I wanted to be, everything sounded so interesting! From being a cake designer, to a financial advisor, a web designer, business owner…the list went on and on. There were several moments where I would catch myself creating lists, stashing stationery from weddings I had attended, and taking screenshots of backdrops and centrepieces which is where my passion for events became crystal clear.
I admire the level of sophistication and organization it requires to run any kind of successful wedding or event. In the beginning, I fully delved into the event industry in order to figure out exactly where my niche was. I was fortunate enough to have worked with the Edmonton Marathon, FaBLOOMosity, KH Events & Decor, and Big Valley Jamboree. My involvement in several multifaceted events reinforced my strong organizational skills and helped me grasp the type relationship I wanted to have with my future clients. One thing led to the next and I incorporated in 2015 to begin helping couples plan and design one of life’s most memorable moments–weddings.
I became a wedding planner because I adore making true, authentic connections with my clients as they all come from such varying walks of life which keeps things lively and interesting. These connections allow me to master each couple’s vision and bring that vision to life. I LOVE pushing the boundaries, challenging traditional design, and decor so when I allowed myself to be silently drawn by the strange pull of what I truly loved, it placed me perfectly under the hat of a wedding planner. My creativity is my product which evokes an emotion, creates a design, and sculpts a wedding into a work of art. Every couple I work with brings about new ideas which I embrace wholeheartedly because lets be honest, who loves doing the same thing twice? Working with these couples, hearing their story and commitment to one another and then translating that into an experience is what makes my job so fulfilling. The uniqueness in each couples day and the level of joy it creates is what I live for. I feel so fortunate to be continually inspired by love and look forward to the opportunity of working with you and your fiancé on creating an event so special the memories will last a lifetime. Please, say hello!
