Julian’s background in the wedding world gives him the perfect tripod of experience. He worked for five years with Rosewood Hotels in catering and as an Area Director of Sales, cultivating a discerning eye for five-star service. He became known for his impeccable taste and attention to detail.
It was also at Rosewood where he developed his affinity for a classic bow tie as his signature attire piece, and earned the name, The Dapper Diplomat.
In between tenures in luxury hospitality, Julian honed his wedding expertise as a luxury planner in the Dallas market. By 2016 he had moved into wedding planning full-time, focusing on destination weddings and local luxury events.
Julian also decided to refine his etiquette knowledge acquiring a Certified Protocol Officer designation from The Protocol School of Washington.
Hosted by The Dapper Diplomat is Julian’s medium for providing the skills that wedding couples need in-between the checklist and the chapel. He also speaks to the event community and conducts workshops for some of the nation’s finest brands to elevate communication, dining, business and social skills.
