JUSTINE

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.

From the early morning on my wedding day, Justine was on top of everything! She showed up to my room like a little ray of sunshine with her binder full of every detail we had gone over.

JULIE

A skilled Broadway stage manager, Julie brings the show to YWbL weddings. She is also kind, attentive, and always carrying her multi-tool. Most recently, Julie's Broadway credits include Angels in America and King Kong, so she can truly handle anything with grace!

A native Jersey girl and fellow midwesterner by choice (Go Hoosiers!), Julie's the gal you want onsite to make your day soar.

We will be eternally grateful to Lauren and her team for making our wedding the best weekend of our lives.
— Liza, Bride

LAUREN R.

The YWbL poster child (her wedding is featured on our home page!), Lauren R. came to YWbL as a client first, before joining the other side. Having worked with YWbL as a bride, Lauren brings unique insight and attention to each wedding she works on. Beyond YWbL, Lauren has over ten years of event experience, most recently at Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, where she's planned events with brides to Storm Troopers to VP Joe Biden and almost everything in-between! Lauren specializes in precision, venue/project management, levity, and lives for elegant affairs with badass couples.

A native Jersey Girl, Lauren holds an MFA in Theater Performance/ Pedagogy from the University of Florida (Go Gators!) and has been a New Yorker for 12 years. Lauren has a deep love for Jeff Goldblum, the Muppets, her husband and their little pup Yoshi.
