Juls Sharpley – Founder and Creative Director
Design perfection is a part of who I am at my core! Growing up, I was constantly looking for ways to create anything custom: clothes for all of my stuffed animals and dolls, furniture for the Barbie house, hairstyles for my friends, bows for my own personal collection, and the list goes on. To say I was girly and loved creating would be an understatement.
I spent the better part of a decade, post-college, teaching skiing first in Vail, then in Aspen, and in Australia in between. I love to ski fast and hard and it’s one of my favorite outlets for overcoming challenges.
I love being around happy, upbeat, and fun people and I infuse those attributes into everything I do.
In my free-time I love to ski (obviously), hike with friends, bake, sew, and knit. I watch “This is Us”, “Project Runway”, “The Voice”, and “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” religiously and “Love Actually” is my all-time favorite movie. (Ask me why I’m learning Portugueses “just in cases”).

“Juls was our wedding planner for our wedding in December. She went above and beyond all our expectations and truly made our wedding day perfect. We booked her as our event manager and she did so much coordination and planning before the wedding, she was much more than we expected. Juls was fun, organized, experienced, and so accommodating. She worked hard and made sure every detail was right on track. She recommended some great vendors to us during the planning process, and treated us more like friends than clients. Plus she made the planning fun. We were so happy to have her help! Booking with Bubbles & Bowties was truly one of the best decisions we made throughout the entire wedding planning! Thank you so much for the most special day!” -Lauren & Drew

My now husband was thoroughly impressed by her level of detail. She doesn’t miss a beat! She handles challenges with ease and those last minute changes with grace. I trusted her wholeheartedly on my big day! From my dad, to best friends, to all the vendors, every single person commented on Juls’ professionalism and expertise. Other than your fiancé, bridal party and family you need Juls by your side on your wedding day. She’s nothing but amazing!!!!” – Jessica & Dylan
