A warm welcome to Julianne Cuomo, our new Director of Celebrations!

Julianne Cuomo, (the new) Director of Celebrations for the Golden Ocala Golf & Equestrian Club, is a Certified Wedding Planner with extensive experience in the Event Management field.  Her sincere passion for planning weddings and working closely with brides is evident.  From your first meeting with her, you will agree: she is a visionary, completely dedicated to the magical outcome for every bride she works with.

Coming to Ocala most recently from Virginia Beach, Julianne has enjoyed planning and executing some of the most spectacular weddings imaginable at some of the finest, most sought after venues.  Her Event Planning background also includes working with the US Navy’s Morale, Welfare and Recreation Department (MWR) in Naples, Italy for 13 years planning large community-wide events for the troops and their families.  From keeping traditional American holidays alive to organizing major outdoor concerts with entertainers such as Reba McIntyre and the Goo Goo Dolls, Julianne has done it all!  This experience as an Event Specialist in Italy instilled the superior organizational skills and acute attention to detail that she possesses today and incorporates into every event she touches!

When she can find a moment between events at Golden Ocala, you will find Julianne spending quality time with her family!  Arriving with her in Ocala is her husband and seven year old daughter, who has fallen deeply in love with horses since they arrived!  She also has four older daughters, who have grown up and are now scattered all over the world, following their dreams and enjoying their own independence and success.  One can only imagine why Julianne chose the Wedding Planning business. This experience will certainly come in handy when the time comes – five times over!

Julianne is new to Florida and currently focusing on building relationships with community members to gain recognition as an integral part of Ocala’s residents and business leaders.  Her role as an Ambassador for the Chamber of Economic Development Partnership is quickly involving her in our beautiful community of Ocala.  Julianne believes making personal connections is important, especially as the new girl in town!

The move to becoming the most recent member of such an outstanding team of service-oriented people at the Golden Ocala Golf & Equestrian Club has completed this chapter of her life. As she settles in for the long haul, she hopes to someday organize her own Retirement Party (in about 20 years), and call Ocala her forever home!
