Meet our Team!
Hi!! I’m Julie Miner the owner, Master Certified Planner/stylist/crazy creating floral designer of JME. I adore all things flowers, parties, fashion, style, and if you could not guess weddings. Obsessed would be a better word. I absolutely love what I do, it is truly my passion. I love hearing my couples stories, how they met, how he/she proposed, and their dreams for how they want the day they begin their new life together to look, to feel. Weddings create such moments of excitement and are all about the emotions.
A little more about me... I was born in Ft. Worth, Texas so love all things glitz and glamour, and of course those with Southern Charm. I moved to Florida in 1997 and have 2 beautiful children. As a child I knew I had to have a career that allowed me to be creative and to connect with people. After spending years in the hospitality industry I decided to branch out on my own and do something that I loved, creating JM Design Group. Originally what started with just designing florals and styling weddings, slowly lead me to helping my clients plan their events after seeing so many of them struggle with all of the details. Five years ago I changed the name of my company to Julie Miner Events and have not looked back.
I have had the privilege to travel all throughout Florida, several states, as well as Mexico, to plan and design weddings. I have also had the honor of writing for and being featured in amazing articles on The Knot, Style
Me Pretty, Southern Weddings, DIY Weddings, Green Wedding Shoes, Ruffled, and many more. believe that your plannerWith an eye for style, a passion for creativity, and what some call a meticulous attention to detail, if you want an unforgettable event you’ve come to the right place.
When I am not planning, styling, or designing for my amazing clients you can find me training, smashing weights, and dying with some amazing athletes at my local Crossfit gym, paddle boarding, camping, traveling, or at the beach with friends and family. Hey I love the outdoors, can you tell!
Hi! My name is Marie Cimirro and I am a Certified Wedding Planner through the Bridal Society. Making an impact on a couples’ special occasion, as monumental as their wedding, gives me great joy. I have a real knack for pulling one’s ideas together, coordinating an action plan, and turning them into the wedding of your dreams.
For each couple, I make it a priority to accomplish this in a fun, collaborative and stress-free environment. Every step of the wedding process, from preplanning designs, the anticipation of the bride seeing the reception décor in its entirety and the excitement of family and friends celebrating together, make every bit of my efforts worthwhile.
Having the special opportunity to work alongside Julie in a leading-edge environment, centered around, a creative, contemporary and client-centered atmosphere is truly gratifying.
When wedding weekends are not in full swing, you can most likely find me at a theme park, running the causeway, crafting or energetically cheering on my favorite football team! I look forward to contributing to your memorable day.
Hi! I’m Haley McConnell. Finding a career that is this much fun and unique was a huge blessing for me. Being apart of every couples most memorable day of their lives has to be the most exciting thing about my job.
I have always wanted to be a wedding planner but for a while the job seemed too intimidating. I bounced around with a few different careers for a couple of years then just kept finding my way back to wedding planning. Ever since I have not been able to get enough of this job.
I have received my Planners Certification through The Bridal Society, my bachelors degree in Event Planning and Management, and have been learning only from the best (Julie).
I never thought I would be excited to work and want to work but then I started doing this. I’m excited for what the future holds for me in this career and everything I will get to experience.
When I’m not planning, I’m spending my time riding my horse and competing. I also spend a lot of time traveling, boating, and spending time with my family!
Hi my name is Ann Cruz and I have been a part of the JME family for a little over 4 years now.
I love assisting the lead planners to ensure that everyone has a great time at the wedding. One of my favorite things about working at JME is helping with the flower arrangements. Julie definitely has a "go big or go home" process when she is creating designs for our couples and I love that.
When I am not helping with weddings I enjoy mountain biking, fishing (I am actually competitive fisher woman), traveling, and volunteering at local animal shelters.
I can't wait to assist in making your wedding day run smoothly, fun, and a great experience for all.
