They are the most sublime days full of love, laughter, and extremely questionable dancing, but they can be a little hectic on the run-up, am I right? Simply because – in order to do it right – you need to be meticulously organized, super decisive, and utterly committed to the task at hand. This is where an experienced, trustworthy event planner who’s on the same page as you really comes in handy. 

Did we just become best friends?

Weddings are the absolute best.

hey there

Insightful event planning that never loses focus of what YOU want.

We understand that you’re super busy. So busy, in fact, you probably don’t have time to read this sentence, right? On top of your usual to-do list, now you’ve got a wedding to plan. HOW will it all get done? 

that's where we come in.

As experienced event planners, we have more than a few tricks up our sleeves. And by “tricks” we mean tried-n-tested time-saving measures that will effortlessly streamline the process. Checklists, budget-tracking, document portals and, of course, The Studio (our in-house wedding design hub) all simplify the planning journey, leaving you free to bask in your engagement.

Weddings should be fun. 

They shouldn’t be stressful or hard to plan, they should be a non-stop party that you’ll never forget. It’s our job (and joy) to take on the planning and execution of your wedding so that you can focus on the parts you enjoy most. You might be really excited about browsing calligraphy artists for the wedding stationery, or listening to potential wedding bands. Whereas trawling through wedding photographers or searching for the perfect napkin might fill you with dread. Having a planner take on the parts you find most stressful frees you up for the fun stuff. Even if the only bit you really want to focus on is the party…

Race you to the dance floor

And if, like most of our clients, you’d rather we help out with all of it, we can do that too! 

I was a latch key kid growing up, which means I had plenty of time alone. For something to do during those parent-free afternoons at home, I taught myself to cook and, in doing so, started to experiment with increasingly extravagant tablescapes. I would cook dinner for my parents and present it on elaborate tables with formal place settings and handcrafted menus. And bless my parents, no matter how exhausted they were from their long working days, they always allowed me to play hostess. This is where my love of entertaining began. 

Abandoning a career in government contracts, I followed a friend’s advice and started planning weddings. It’s a career that speaks to me in that way that only the right career can. I have never looked back and thank my lucky stars every day that I took the plunge.

The woman you need on your team 


Alexa’s full-time gig is teaching middle schoolers (she’s a brave soul!). She is a Greek who does not care for Greek food, but is rather obsessed with Mexican food. She is an all-star organizer and is obsessed with creating a good system. When a good system is not in play, you best believe she will figure out how to make it a better one. Alexa’s favorite moment at weddings is when the event officially starts; she knows she’s done everything possible to make the event a success!



Monday through Friday, Kayla is a social worker trying to help folks get their footing despite challenging circumstances. After work, you'll find her cooking an extravagant dinner for her partner, working on a puzzle, or looking online for tickets for my next concert. As a queer person, Kayla is passionate about working with couples who haven't seen themselves represented in the wedding world. At weddings, Kayla loves to pause during the reception and take in the joy of the party, watching couples laugh, hug, and dance with their favorite people.

Kelsey is a Maryland native and resides in the same small town that she grew up in with her husband and three children! A Human Resources professional by day, Kelsey loves assisting with events on the weekends. Her favorite part of weddings is watching a couple’s dream wedding become a reality. When she’s not at the office or perfecting your place settings, you can find her camping or on the sidelines of a ball field.


During the day, Tessa works in finance with the Federal Government. In her spare time, she is an avid quilter; you should see her t-shirt quilts. Tessa lives locally with her husband and her dog, Cam. As an event assistant, Tessa takes pride in helping our couples have the best experience possible so that they end the night with the most amazing memories!



Maddy is Julie’s niece and, although she was initially roped in to helping at events, she quickly fell in love with the joy and excitement that comes with weddings. On event days, Maddy enjoys the logistics of setup and is especially helpful at problem solving when things don’t go as planned. In her free time, you can find her coaching on the ball field, enjoying her favorite sushi rolls, or relaxing poolside with a frappuccino.


Shelby is starting her junior year of high school this fall, and stays busy with academics, field hockey, lacrosse, and horseback riding, to name a few of her hobbies! She is our office guru and rental inventory expert, and also assists at events throughout the year. Her favorite part of weddings is when the dance music starts and the party's underway!


With an extensive background in finance, program management, human resources, and just about any other area of business administration that you can think of, Sandy brings a wealth of knowledge to the table when it comes to managing the back end of all things events and rentals. Every other day, Sandy lives her best retirement life, cruising the globe, volunteering at her favorite nonprofits, and answering to "Mimi."

Jeff's tag line could easily be "I pick things up, and put things down." He spends the majority of his time around the office loading and unloading rentals and making sure your pieces are picture perfect for your event day. He organizes our delivery teams, keeps our delivery equipment in working order, cleans rentals, and provides unsolicited entertainment all day long. Before his career in event rentals, Jeff spent 30 years in public service as a flight medic, K9 officer, and fire fighter. On his days off, you can find him camping with the family, swimming laps at the local Y, and running kids to all the activities.

Julie is an incredibly dedicated professional who takes so much pride in her work, and it shows in every aspect. I didn't even know half of the things that went down at my own wedding until after the fact because Julie took care of every single one of them. She's kind, so caring, and SO GOOD at what she does. I work as a professional photographer and have worked with Julie on several occasions, so when it came time to plan my own wedding, I knew just who I wanted to hire as our planner/coordinator. She has the strongest work ethic, goes above and beyond, and does it all with a smile and kindness. There wasn't a second that I didn't feel her support or know that she had absolutely everything under control. Worth EVERY. SINGLE. PENNY.”

"I honestly cannot say enough good things about Partridge & Co! 

No idea where to start and feeling a little lost? we've got you.

Brimming with ideas and need an experienced sounding board to bounce them off? 

Well, let’s see. I think we’ll get along just fine if you…
  • Love a high-end brand (like Kate Spade - personal fave of mine) but appreciate a good practical bargain at the same time (Hello, Target) 
  • Know the difference between timeless and trendy 
  • Love a party, but appreciate the joy of a plan-free evening in 
  • Are sure it’s 5 o’clock somewhere
  • Are full of ideas, but need a killer list of contacts to pull them off
  • Have no idea where to start 
  • Could really use a friend who knows what she’s doing  

So are we a good fit?

We really do care about your event like it’s our own. Investing in our clients on a personal level is the only way we know how to work, which gives our services a warm-hug-on-a-cold-day kinda feel. By the end of our planning journey, you’ll likely be eager to plan another one so we can hang out some more. In short, our clients really do become our friends. And we never let a friend down. 

tell me more!

Unforgettable events organized with


A handful of things to know about Julie that have absolutely nothing to do with work: 

I’m addicted to whipped cream. The REAL stuff. Ice cream, pie, coffee. If I can add whipped cream to it, it’s happening.
I LOVE flamingos. Seriously. I’d get one as a pet if not for the considerable impracticalities. 
During the pandemic, my husband and I sold our home and took off around the country in an RV with our four kids. Crazy? Possibly. Fun? Definitely. 
I’m a true blue Maryland girl - born and bred - and have lived within a 5-mile radius my entire life. But I don’t like crabcakes. Weird.
I’m currently teaching myself to play guitar. I don’t suck, but I need more practice (will trade event planning for guitar lessons).
