Bringing loved ones together for sentiment and celebration has become my passion and is what lead me to event design and wedding planning. After realizing that these times are some of the most profound and memorable moments of our lives, I knew that this industry is where I am meant to be.
I cherish these memories with my own friends and family and feel privileged to contribute to those of my clients.
At Simply Elegant, we pride ourselves on a creative and fresh approach to designing and planning every event. We realize that each event is unique and should be a reflection of you and your style, and we live for bringing that to life. Each event is extremely important to us and we know how important it is to you. To ensure each of our clients and events maintain the highest level of service, we limit the number of events we accept per year.
Please, take a moment to get to know us and consider Simply Elegant Event and Wedding Design for your next event or personal celebration.
From my recent travels I fell in love with London and Barcelona, but Turks and Caicos is on my bucket list (even though I’m terrified of the water cause I can’t swim!)

I am a romantic at heart and I love a fairytale ending. After 15 years in the industry, I still get goosebumps and cry at every wedding.
"Walt and I want to express our gratitude to you for planning Tiffany’s beautiful wedding. We were both speechless when we walked into Troon North on the wedding day and saw how the venue had been transformed. It was very hard and stressful, especially for me, because we had to rely on you to implement Tiffany’s vision for her big day without being there in person since we live so far away. You made sure that we were included in everything, even skyping with us to look at the reception table details. We knew when we walked into the reception hall that you had not only captured Tiffany’s vision, you also captured everything that we dreamed about for her wedding day."
"I have nothing but wonderful things to say about Julie and her team! Hired for both, day of coordinator and floral, she took and executed exactly what I wanted for our special day! Planning a destination wedding was a bit of a challenge but Julie was so amazing and took the lead with meetings and vendors! She went above and beyond on our wedding day to make sure my vision was exact! The florals and design she provided were absolutely beautiful! Every one of my guests complimented how perfect everything was! Wouldn’t hesitate to book Simply Elegant for my next event!"
"I cannot thank you enough for what you did. You seriously made my dreams come true. I was so afraid that what I pictured in my mind would not executed the same way, but Julie ended up going above and beyond, and made all of my dreams come true. We received numerous compliments (and have no one to thank, but Julie). One thing I really appreciated as well, was that she worked with my EXACT color theme. I showed her exact color themes I wanted and she executed it!!! We HIGHLY recommend Julie. I assure you that her work is AMAZING (and speaks for itself through photographs even)! Thank you for everything, Julie. We honestly couldn’t have been happier. I can’t wait to recommend you to all of my friends and family!"
"We had about 9 months to plan a 3 day extravagant Indian wedding! We both have full time jobs and were new in the city. We met with Julie the first night, and we knew she was the one we had to have to plan our extravaganza. She put us at ease that first meeting, we were already stressed and overwhelmed about planning this wedding. She took our ideas and our likes into consideration with every step and every detail of the wedding. It was nice to have someone who always had your interests as their first priority. From day 1 we could tell that her entire goal was to make sure we got the exact wedding we wanted. The weekend was so magical and such a fairy tale. Our guests all had the best time ever, and enjoyed every moment. We would highly recommend Julie Hurt and Simply Elegant to plan and decorate your wedding or any event. We are so grateful to her and her team for giving us the perfect dream wedding."
"I do not even have the words to express my gratitude towards Julie. She is absolutely amazing and went above and beyond for my wedding. By the time of our first meeting she already understood my style and had even more suggestions for me that were beautiful! She even custom made one of my centerpieces. She has such a fantastic eye and is so experienced that she made everything more beautiful then I even thought possible! But Julie is so much more than a florist! Even though she wasn't my wedding planner (I already had one by the time I met Julie) she treated me like I was one of her brides. She constantly checked on me. When I had an issue with anything for my wedding, she went out of her way to find a solution. She was with me every step of the way and she made me feel so special and truly made my wedding planning process stress free. She is the best! I am SO thankful I found Julie. I had the wedding of my dreams all thanks to her!"
"I rarely do reviews, but I must share how AWESOME Julie is! I would give her 10 stars out of 5 if I could!!! After meeting up with her, my gut feeling said she will do a good job, but no... she did an AMAZING job! Farrrr surpass my expectations. What I envisioned, she created it, made it happen, and making my wedding so beautiful and very memorable, for myself and guests. Julie is extremely professional, quick on responses, and is just a wonderful person in general! I did flowers and chair rentals with her, but her company, Simply Elegant, does more than that, offering wedding planning/ coordinating services, decorating services, and more. Bottom line is you cannot go wrong with Julie; you'll be more than pleased because Julie will try to make your dream wedding come true. At least, for me, it was certainly perfect and truly SIMPLY ELEGANT!!!!! Thank you Julie!!!!!
