CLIENT REVIEWS


      When I first met with Julie, she was a very friendly person! We sat together and wrote out a list of what she needed us to bring, and what she would provide as part of her service, and business. One business day before my wedding, she emailed me asking if she could send someone else in her place because she had a “very big potential client” who she hoped would be a “reoccurring customer”. Sending this email sent me the signal that I was less important than this newer client. The fact that she assumed I wouldn’t be a repeat customer was disappointing, and immediately told me that I would not, in fact, be a recurring customer. She also couldn’t be bothered to spell my name correctly, even though we were Facebook friends at the time, and I had sent her money for a deposit.

    
She arrived ill-prepared for the day ahead, and did not open the bar at the time we had agreed on at our previous meeting. Unbeknownst to her, people at my wedding love me a lot, so when she badmouthed my mom and I to the guests all day, and especially after I had left the venue, my family told me about it! Before the wedding, she emailed me a list of things that we needed to provide and we did as such. One of her sticking points was that we did not bring her a knife… the bartender did not bring a knife when she was fully aware she would need to prep the lemons, limes, and oranges we had agreed on serving. We ended up needing more alcohol because she was serving giant drinks to the guests. She even served a minor alcohol without checking ID, which we will be reporting to the OLCC and WA Liquor Board.

    I had hoped that this would be a lovely interaction because we hit it off so well, but I cannot stand people who talk shit behind my back… at my own wedding.

      Julie did an amazing job at our party. She was a pleasure to have and so attentive to the guests. In fact, I would say that we received positive feedback on her from a majority of our guests. She's definitely our first call next time we need a bartender!

      The best decision I made for my event!
    From the beginning Julie was easy to contact, very quick responses to emails, texts and calls.
    I'm kinda bossy but Julie listened and went above and beyond! Her and her partner did an amazing job! Set up, cleaned up and even went around to all the guests at my daughters wedding asking if they needed anything. Which I hadn't even asked them to do. I was able to relax and enjoy the big day and with full confidence that everything would be handled.
    Hire them!! You won't regret it!

        Julie bartended my wedding and was an absolute joy to work with. We purchased our own alcohol, and Julie was more than willing to help us figure out exactly what we needed - and then calmly talked me down a couple weeks later when I realized that I still had no idea how to pull it all off. She responded to every email promptly. The day of the ceremony she was an absolute life-saver. Julie unexpectedly jumped in to help set up our buffet tables, and was so funny and charming throughout the night that my father later asked me if she was a personal friend. I cannot say enough positive things about her. You won't regret hiring this amazing woman!!!
