Get to Know Me


I'm Julia, the Lead Planner and Content Creator here at Day by Drachenberg. As a kid I told my mom I would grow up to be a 'party planner' and watched her host an uncountable amount of fully themed and thought out parties and events.

I have a Bachelors of Science in Kinesiology with a minor in Psych, almost 10 years in customer service, and spent 7 years behind the busy bar at Starbucks.

I opened Day by Drachenberg after an extensive mentorship with an experienced and well loved planner.

I care fiercely about honest planning, quick communication, and being detailed so you can be relaxed. I love the organized chaos of weddings and thrive in busy environments where my quick thinking and problem solving shine bright. Calm in a storm is just what you need on wedding day.

When not planning I can be found running (slowly), swimming in the beautiful Okanagan lake, and enjoying my fair share of Cactus Club.
