Our Team


Julie Padgett

As the owner of Rocky Mountain Weddings and an almost “local”, I have lived in Banff for 15 years. I hale from Ontario but have spent my whole adult life out west.

I have four young children and a husband that works more hours than I do! When I’m not working (which is rare!), I can often be found out and about with my kids, running, cooking or trying to squeeze in a weekend away somewhere.

I enjoy traveling and have visited many awesome countries within Europe, Thailand, Dubai, the Caribbean and Mexico and the southwest USA. I am a sun lover so any chance I have to get away from the everyday and bask in the sunlight, I take it! Although, Banff and Canmore do boast some of the sunniest, yet cold, winters in the country so sunshine is not hard to find around here!

I have worked in various jobs in Banff over the years from coffee shops to contractors but the main outcome has always been on the business end with my fingers in customer service and planning. I first dipped my toes into being a business owner when I started “My Hotel Sitter” in 2009, a local childcare business. Realizing I loved being my own boss, I purchased RMW in 2014 from Lauren (who still helps us on occasion, lucky us!). I genuinely LOVE my job (okay, maybe not the accounting end, yuck), but the rest of it is always unique and fun and there is no better feeling than helping make someone else’s special day a reality!
