Iceland New Years Trip

 Hi Hans and Julie,

It has been several months since we returned from our trip with you to Iceland for New Year’s 2013/2014, we wanted to tell you again how great it was. As time passes by, we continue to think about the trip, it hasn’t faded away at all. I travelled to Europe with family last summer and that was great, but not like this trip to Iceland. We knew we would enjoy it, but not as much as we did. The people were so nice, the food/water/air was amazing, the scenery, the New Year’s Eve celebration was off the charts, everything! You guys packed an amazing amount of wonderful experiences into this trip, all for an amazing price, shouldn’t be missed..

Monica Wedding

Everything was so much more than we expected! The wedding turned out to be the absolute best I have ever been a part of or have been to.

Setting was perfect. Service was perfect. Music was perfect. Photographer was perfect. Food was perfect. I wish it all could have lasted much much longer. I will recommend you whenever given the opportunity. Thank you.

VCB Bank

Hans and Julie:
Wow - What a wonderful event last night!
I wanted to personally thank both of you for the part you played in making our VCB employee celebration so successful.  The "buzz" continues about all aspects of the evening from the decor, food, Alain Nu & company, and especially Sprocket who was such a hit!  Everyone continues to share all of the conversations they had with Sprocket with laughter and amusement which was exactly the goal we were looking for.  It is apparent that last night's meeting will live in the memories of many employees for years to come!  I hope you can continue to exercise your influence with the Waterford when they discover all of their bent silverware!

As we discussed, I professionally have had responsibility for corporate event planning in the past for many years and this event stands out in my mind as one of the best planned and executed.  Thanks so much for playing your part of the team so professionally and creatively.  

Look forward to working with you in the future --

Linda Fourney

Olivia and Taz Wedding

Hans and Julie of Trulie an Event were the biggest blessing we could have had on our wedding day.

I could not have imagined a more perfect event. Everything they did exceeded our expectations. The wedding planning was enjoyable and completely stress free. So many people congratulated us on the work they did and how beautiful the event had turned out. There are so many variables they took care of that you can't even imagine. They recommended all the vendors for the wedding and all of them were wonderful. They even helped us have an amazing rehearsal dinner, engagement party, and honeymoon we'll never forget. And best of all, they are not only professional, but so much fun to work with! If you're looking for a fabulous, stress free, and knockout event.

Trulie an Event is TRULY for you!

Kortebein Family Vacation

Hans,  It was one of our best trips,for many reasons. We logged 1000 miles on the car seeing all of the awesome sights you had planned.  

Loved, loved Sedona.  The beauty, the various canyons and trails.  Enchantment was right up there in great resorts.  The spa was wonderful. 

Your 2-day Grand Canyon (upper rim and helicopter) and inside via Jeep was perfect.  It was a once in a lifetime experience. We did it all and enjoyed every minute of it.  Many great stories and memories.

The pace of the trip was (our new phrase) Hans-esk.  We saw so much in the 10 days that it felt like we had been gone a month.  We were totally immersed in the experience.  Excellent.  We are ready for another
Hans-esk trip.......thinking about spring break.......With Emma studying abroad (AFS) in Italy we would be a family of five (2 adults, 12,10, 6 years).  Our vacation is the week before Easter.  We would probably enjoy 
sun, relax, enjoy, try new stuff.  How's that for descriptive.  At that time of year we need to get out of the snow and hectic pace.....relaxation is big. 

Give it some thought.

Cate and Michael Wedding

I can't say enough about Hans and Julie!

I was worried to hype the day because everyone says that planning is stressful and the actual day is rushed for the bride and groom. We had the opposite experience all thanks to these two wonderful people. We absolutely loved our wedding, and would not have done anything differently. We also always looked forward to planning times. Hans and Julie listened to our ideas and got a feel for who we are. They suggested vendors that completely suited our personalities and what we wanted for our wedding. We loved that the vendors came out to one area. so we weren't driving all over. We could not have been happier with the vendors we had.

The guests from Ireland want to fly the band over! Our guests have also told us that the cake was the best they have ever had and that the food was the best they have ever eaten. They said it was the most beautiful wedding they had ever attended. I have never heard so many people comment on a tent before! I can't leave out that the site itself is one of the most enchanting places I have ever seen. Since Hans and Julie are the exclusive planners for this site, they know it well and how to make it look unbelievable. The way Hans did the lighting, along with the flowers and other countless details that I would never have thought to include (but Hans and Julie did) made our wedding incredible.

Their reassuring demeanor and the complete confidence we had that they were on top of everything, made it so that we focused only on enjoying ourselves and celebrating with our friends and family. This was invaluable.

The honeymoon is yet another amazing experience we had because of Hans and Julie. We told them what we were looking for, and some places we were considering. Hans put together detailed plans and pointed out what he thought we would be interested in. We chose Costa Rica, and are so thankful we did. It exceded our expectations to say the least. We went Zip lining through the rain forest, repelling down waterfalls etc.. and had the best time relaxing in the volcanic hot springs in the amazing resort. Since Hans and Julie travel there frequently, they knew all of the inside tips (including where the best happy hour is for pineapple drinks, best place to watch the sunset, etc.), and kept in contact with the places we visited to make sure we made it safely to the different destinations. This sense of security in a foriegn country gave us secure piece of mind so we were able to fully relax. Hans and Julie made all of the arangements so it was the easiest vacation we have had by far. I fully reccomend that you take advantage of their honeymoon planning services.

Their experience, attention to detail, and natural ease in relating to people make them outstanding. We are grateful for all they have done for us, and feel blessed to know them!

Cate and Michael Donohoe
P.S. If you are worried about "that one crazy guest" no need to, if you have Hans and Julie!

Brenda and Jackson Wedding

Choose a site, choose a dress, choose a wedding song..... choose Trulie an Event!

Hans and Julie are a delight. Their personalities and experience complement each other resulting in detailed attention and swift execution. They are thoughtful, flexible and reliable.

Our wedding was everything we wanted and we never once worried about anything more than each other and visiting with our friends and family.

If you value your time, money and sanity.... Trulie an Event is one of the best choices you can make.

Julia and Sean Wedding

We would highly recommend Trulie An Event to anyone that is planning a wedding. They went far beyond what could be expected of a planner and left us with countless memories that we will never forget. One example of such a memory came on the day our wedding. Just one hour before the wedding was to begin we realized that the groom’s tux was missing. Without missing a beat Julie swung into action with the help of the fabulous staff at the Farmers Plantation. Together they came up with a solution that involved the groom driving to a private home of a very generous woman who just happened to have a tux that was similar in size to what was needed. Throughout this entire ordeal Julie did everything she could to keep everything on schedule and keep the nerves of everyone in check. It still warms my heart to think that all these wonderful people did so much to make our special day turn out so wonderfully.

Julie and Hans really listened to our needs and requirements. They spent a significant amount of time understanding our vision before they even offered up options for what we could do. Throughout the entire process we always felt like they had their entire hearts into making sure we had exactly what we wanted. No item was too small or insignificant in their eyes. Julie and Hans made sure that along the path to building our event we fully understood what we could expect to happen on our special day. Even having all these insights we were still pleasantly surprised and amazed at just how wonderful everything turned out. Things could not have been more perfect. All of the vendors that Trulie An Event booked did a fantastic job. The level of professionalism was beyond reproach. With all the big things we had to remember on our plate, like how many tuxes we should bring, it was truly a joy to know that every detail of our event was in the hands of
such great people. Everyone who came commented on how it was one of the best weddings they had ever attended. Thank you Hans and Julie!!! You are great people with the warmth and caring to make any event a special occasion.

Here are some recommendations that will make your wedding stand out:

1. If you are having children at your wedding we would recommend having Sprocket the robot he will make their day.
2. Ask about the fireworks, there is no better way to end the day.

We had the most magical wedding and it was all due to Trulie An Event, Thank you again for all you did for us.

Heather and Brian Wedding

We are so thankful to have met Hans and Julie Roland while visiting our future wedding site at Farmer’s Delight Plantation during the early stages of planning our wedding.

My mother, husband and I instantly connected with both Hans and Julie and felt that our wedding would now be unique and most importantly, stress free! They were extremely helpful, creative, professional, flexible and fun to work with. The vendors that we were put in contact with were of the same caliber of professionals. We could not ask for a better wedding day and would not change one thing if we had the chance to do it all over again! We continue to receive wonderful compliments on the beauty of our wedding day, and for that we are grateful to the amazing planning skills and vendors that participated and made it happen!

Juliaette and Jerry Wedding

We cannot say enough good things about Julie and Hans over at Trulie an Event!

From our initial meeting all they way up to our actual wedding day, Julie and Hans served as our eyes and ears in planning our DC wedding while living several hundred miles away in Missouri. It was important to my wife that she have someone who could relieve the stress in planning this type of event, yet still make our special day a personal tribute to our love and to our family. Julie at Trulie was our answer. Julie takes the time (and talent) to listen to everyone's point of view and requests, then provides her wisdom in suggesting a plan for how to achieve our vision. She took care of all our planning related to catering, florists, audio/visual, hotels, guest transportation, reception music, wedding cake, etc, etc!. Julie knows what to do and has all the local contacts and experience to make it happen, but even more Julie takes the time to make sure every detail was personalized to our requests. The result was a wedding day that my wife and I will cherish for the rest of our lives.

Side note - After several weeks of working with them to plan our wedding, we were so impressed that we also asked for their assistance in planning our honeymoon! Hans helped to coordinate a great escape to Costa Rica - with time spent in several hotels, world-class service, and wonderful food. Their experience in planning travel is a hidden gem - as they know these places personally and took every request from us and made it a reality.

Maria Wedding

The best decision I made throughout planning my wedding, was partnering with Trulie An Event as my wedding coordinator!

If I were to do things differenently, I would have hired them to coordinate my entire wedding, but unfortunately I did not discover them until later in my planning process. If you are seeking an event planner that will deliver professionalism, class and creativity while keeping your needs as top priority, contact Trulie An Event today. On top of delivering exceptional results, Trulie An Event was a pleasure to work with and made planning an enjoyable experience. Planning any event, especially a wedding, can be so stressful.

Ultimately, you are looking for peace that everything will run smoothly and perfectly when the big day comes and you/your guests will not have to worry about a thing. If this is what you want, trust me...Trulie An Event is who you want!

June 2007 Wedding

Planning a long distance wedding can be quite a challenge and my daughter and I knew that having some support along the way as well as a coordinator for the wedding weekend was essential.

I knew instantly after talking to Julie Roland at Trulie An Event that we would love working with her because of her warm personal style and her knowledge of the ceremony site.

Julie has a delightful personality, is very professional and knowledgeable, detail oriented, extremely generous with her time, and always gave us peace of mind when we were feeling stressed. The wedding is now a beautiful memory although our guests are still commenting on how perfect everything was that day. Thanks Julie!

Gail and Bailey Wedding

Julie and Hans Roland are the best thing that happened upon Bailey and me in planning our wedding!

They were very professional, responded to our calls and emails, found vendors who fit our style and budget, made us feel they were focused on our event and, most importantly, made sure they brought our vision to life. We also worked with Julie and Hans to plan our rehearsal dinner, Sunday brunch, honeymoon and even held the bridesmaid luncheon at their beautiful mountaintop home. We never had to worry about the vendor details once our choices were made.
They allowed us to relax, enjoy the ride and focus on sharing that magical time with each other and with our friends and family.

Our friends still talk about our wedding and want us to get married again so they can relive the fun with us. What an honor! I think that is truly the mark of a successful event and speaks volumes to a job well done by the behind-the-scenes master mind that is Trulie an Event.
