“From beginning to end, Julia and her ITM team exceeded our expectations and created a magical day that we will cherish forever.   We had the pleasure of having Julia and ITM plan a 50th birthday party, which turned into a surprise wedding (for the guests!  the family knew).  From vendor selection (photographer, caterers, dj, flowers, linens, photobooth suppliers and more) to overall look and feel (candles in vases on logs for our alter!, chandeliers over our outdoor dancefloor) Julia maintained a focused balance that brought our event(s!) in on budget, as scheduled and way beyond expectations!  ITM worked behind the scenes to pull off both a fun birthday party and genuine heartfelt wedding celebration.  Did I mention that the wedding was planned in under 3 weeks!  ITM wasn’t daunted by the timeframe, they were excited for it!  Many of our guests raved about all of the aspects that Julia thought they would ~ she knows what makes a party a great time, and what impact items to focus on.

Julia and ITM are consummate professionals – leaving no detail untouched, while ensuring that the emotion of the moment is captured.  Our only regret is not having another big event to plan with ITM! (yet…)”
