The YWbL Jane-of-all-trades, Justine has been with YWbL since just after it’s inception, working on weddings in Montauk, Manhattan, Brooklyn, and deeper Brooklyn. Justine specializes in joy-filled, DIY infused, dance-heavy weddings where having fun and getting hitched are the two goals of the day. By the end of the wedding, she will be your mom and your flower girl’s best friend.
A native New Yorker and fellow midwesterner by choice (Go Hoosiers!) with a background in production and theater, Justine has a love of oversized sweaters, Miley Cyrus and her little dog Toby.
A LOVELY EMAIL FROM ONE OF OUR LOVELY BRIDESMAIDS:
I was one of [the] bridesmaids (and my son was the ringbearer) and just wanted to express how amazing Justine was to work with. I almost never feel compelled to write reviews or give unsolicited feedback, but I was so very impressed with her that I just wanted to sing her praises and make sure you knew how amazing she was.
She was enthusiastic and bubbly, was very communicative via text and then in person, made sure everything ran on-time, didn't overlook any details big or small, and was amazing with my 5yo son, who almost balked going down the aisle. I basically attribute my son fulfilling his ringbearer duties to her. She put him at ease and when he got nervous, she called him a ninja (since she saw him watching Ninjago earlier) and got him to go! I also watched her graciously but firmly explain to the venue how [the bride and groom] had wanted the tables set up, track down the best man for his speech, anticipate items that Sarah and Benson would need and unobtrusively hand them the items at the appropriate time, and swoop in to provide high chairs where needed. Other friends who were not in the wedding party even commented on how well she did her job.
Thanks for helping Sarah & Benson make their day amazing :)
