About Emily Grace Events

Emily Grace Julaton, CGSP

Emily Grace Julaton, CGSP, is an LGBT-friendly Filipino wedding planner based out of Las Vegas, Nevada. As a teenager growing up in the Philippines, she was heavily involved in extracurricular activities such as folk dancing and cheerleading but still found time to serve as event coordinator and choreographer for friends’ 18th Birthday debutante balls! As you can see, Emily Grace was highly sought after for her event planning expertise from an early age!

From the start of her career, Emily Grace was skilled in working with individuals and groups from cultures that differed from her own. Her skills in organizing parties and meetings with international guests were developed in multiple roles in the retail commerce and hospitality industries. As an Executive Assistant to the General Manager of a major hotel resort, she learned a great deal about hotel operations, customer service and event planning.

Love was the reason that Emily Grace found herself in the U.S. after working abroad for several years. On a fiancée’s, Visa, she and her husband had only 90 days to get married. Due to time constraints, her mother in law planned the entire wedding on the couple’s behalf. Unfortunately, Emily Grace didn’t end up with the traditional wedding that she had dreamed about. For this reason and many others, Emily Grace is dedicated to creating special events that are as unique as each of her clients!

Prior to Emily Grace’s official start as an event planner, she completed studies in Administrative Assistant and Secretarial Science from St. Scholastica’s College and Culinary Arts, Baking and Restaurant Management from the Arizona Culinary Institute. While she enjoyed working as Lead Pastry Chef and the creativity it allowed her, she yearned for more direct interaction with clients. To fulfill this need, Emily Grace enrolled in The International School of Hospitality (TISOH) in Las Vegas and in 2015, she earned an Executive Diploma in Hospitality Operations with an emphasis in Wedding Coordination and Design. Since that time, she has successfully planned a wide array of weddings and events in the Las Vegas valley.

Emily Grace’s clients rave about her – and for good reason! She brings a level of thoughtfulness, understanding, fun, style and grace that is not often encountered in the wedding planning industry. Best of all, she takes pride in artistically fulfilling her client’s vision and then going above and beyond to provide the “wow” factor that has become her signature. Whether you’re looking for something traditional, modern or anywhere in between, Emily Grace has what it takes to make your dream a reality!

  • Enjoys hiking, wall rock climbing, and spa resort.

Getting to know Emily Grace

What do you love most about event planning?

All of the endless possibilities, working with brides and grooms with different backgrounds and cultures. Learning about each couple’s backgrounds gives me a better idea of who they are as a couple and blends into their personalities and the type of wedding that they’d like. I’m usually able to find something about them and something about me that blends us together and helps to form a solid working relationship. My clients tend to be open-minded, connecting to the comments that I make about the wedding planning process, timeline and budget and learning along the way.

What are some of the most memorable moments from events you've coordinated so far?

I love watching each couple coming into their reception. Hearing them say, “This is perfect, it’s what I had envisioned in my mind!” The look on their faces is priceless. You know that you did your job to perfection up to their expectations and even beyond. Also, the guests appreciating the decor and all of the little details. It makes all of the hard work you put in behind the scenes, fixing things that weren’t quite right, all the more worthwhile.

What advice do you have for out of town couples or individuals planning a Las Vegas wedding?

Consider the month/season, number of guests, budget. Think outside of the box! Las Vegas offers some very unique venues that cater to your budget and what you need so don’t be afraid to make it your own and go “off the beaten path” with your wedding!

Does your experience as a pastry chef make you very selective when choosing dessert vendors?

Yes, definitely. Every wedding that I’ve done, I try to taste the cake and then I’ll have an idea of the quality of pastry that they serve. If I’m not happy, the guests won’t be happy. It has to not only look good, but taste good. The cake is something that people remember long after the event is over so it needs to be just right.

What criteria do you use for selecting vendors and venues that you work with on a regular basis?

Vendors must be professional and return my calls. If they can’t get back to me in a timely manner, that’s a red flag. They must work with me as a team and have a timeline that makes sense for the event. I work with vendors and see how they perform in each wedding. I do not like vendors who drink during events; it doesn’t seem professional to me. The relationship that they build with me is important. I need to be able to rely on them, and vice versa. They know that I’m flexible and reliable; if the photographer needs additional time for an intimate shot of the couple, I work with them and build some extra time in before the meal is served. Teamwork is essential. Often the first impression is right; I see if they are approachable and seem to be easy to work with. These criteria are essential in order for me to work with a vendor and I’ve been fortunate to build relationships with very talented and professional vendors that I can call upon over and over.
