Meet the Owner of Something Bleu

Julie Riley

Owner, Lead Planner, & Certified Wedding Planner

Having an ever-creative and detail-minded eye in every aspect of her life, Julie’s vision for creating Something Bleu bloomed from being the “go to” party and event planner for her friends, family members, and several Boston-area employers. As an accomplished equestrian for over 2 decades, Julie is driven to perfection through patience, and high attention to detail which translates into her love for planning the perfect wedding or social event!

In 2013, Julie founded Something Bleu to cater to career-minded couples who need support in planning their wedding or social event. With a Business & Marketing degree from Bridgewater College in
Virginia and a Certified Wedding Planner in Planning, Design, and Styling through the Wedding Planner Institute, you are in excellent hands for planning, designing, and executing your big day.

We have just under 60 weddings and events under our belt and are honored to be a Wedding Wire awarded New England wedding planner through the Couples’ Choice Awards from 2017-2020! More recently we were also awarded the WeddingRule Editor’s Choice Awards for one of Boston’s Top 25 Wedding Planners in Boston awards!
