As a Reverend of the nondenominational Universal Life Church, I am ordained to marry couples in most states around the country, including Washington. If you're getting married soon and are looking for a fun, energetic and inspired individual to help you create your ideal ceremony, look no further! I have a wealth of resources available at my fingertips to help you design a ceremony that incorporates your personalities and traditions.
I could embellish, but I'd rather speak with you in person so that we can decide if we're a good match. Your officiant should be almost as suitable for you as your future spouse! Well, not really, but you do want the day to be memorable and you do want to have fond memories of the actual moments spent saying your "I Do's".
Fees are based on a few things: the size and intricacy of your ceremony, the season (peak season is June through September) and the location. Included in the fees is help with filing all the relevant legal documents as well as guidance and assistance with crafting your vows.
Call or e-mail me and let's talk amongst ourselves!
Choosing Julie to be our wedding officiant was the best decision we made during the entire wedding planning process. We have nothing but good things to say about Julie. After the first time we met her, we immediately knew she was the one. She is professional, responsive, kind, funny, and very personable. We met with Julie several times and got to know her quite well. She also got to know us quite well as a couple and as individuals and ended up writing the most perfect and meaningful cemerony. She was able to capture our personalities so well in our ceremony. Everybody loved it. Our family and friends are still talking about how amazing she was. It was absouletely magical having Julie up there with us and she felt like family. If you are looking for a wonderful wedding officiant, we highly recommend Julie! She will take the time to get to know you. She is truly a very special and talented woman. We are so grateful we found her!
I would highly recommend Julie as a wedding officiant! Julie does not simply show up on your wedding day ready to perform your ceremony, but she helps you prepare for your big day months before hand. She will be as hands on as you need, whether you need help getting your vows to say exactly what you mean or you feel overwhelmed at the hundreds of potential choices for readings, she is ready and able to help you. Furthermore, Julie's writing is unique, personal and beautiful and each of her ceremonies are individual and special. She created an outstanding ceremony for our wedding that had our guests laughing at one moment to wiping tears of happiness away the next. All of our guests came up to compliment us on our choice of officiant after the service was over. Julie truly takes the time to get to know each of her couples so that by the end of the wedding, not only was she your fabulous officiant, but she is also now an amazing friend. I can not say enough about Julie!
Julie just officiated our wedding this past weekend and was simply outstanding! She is organized, well spoken and truly takes pleasure in personalizing each ceremony to her clients. The fun started when we booked Julie and she sent us a questionnaire in order to get to know us better, sample vows to help us get started with the daunting process of writing our own, and a huge selection of readings to help us narrow down the extensive choices for our ceremony. She was willing to help us with our vows when asked and helped us express what we wanted to say to each other. She created a wonderful, personal, touching ceremony that has the perfect balance of happy tears and laughs that every guest complimented after. Julie is the complete package and we highly recommend her as your officiant!
Julie was absolutely brilliant! Throughout the wedding planning process, Julie was there to help every step of the way. From helping us with our vows, to recommending readings and vendors, she was fabulous. Julie is also detailed oriented - she will check in with you to ensure you are on track with your vows and readings. She truly captures the essence of each couple so she can tailor the ceremony and make the moment personal and magical. Not only is Julie competent, she is fun, personable, and easy to work with! We highly recommend Julie. Thank you for everything, Julie!
Julie was the best, We ended up finding Julie through a referral of a referral from a co-worker, so we went into this not knowing much about her. Within a few minutes of speaking with her on the phone I knew we had found our officiant. Julie insisted on meeting with us several times prior to our wedding date to get to know us on a personal level. She took notes, asked great questions, had us individually fill out some questionnaires about our views on each other and stayed in touch with us throughout the process. She then took all of our information and customized the perfect ceremony for us incorporating all of our pertinent stories and ramblings into a loving, beautiful and humorous portrayal of us. On the day of our wedding she showed up early made sure that everything for the ceremony was in place, took charge of a few details that we had unintentionally neglected and made sure that everything went off without a glitch. She took the time to get to know and meet our family, friends and guests and then when it was time for our vows, Julie delivered. Our wedding ceremony exceeded all of our expectations thanks to Julie and we highly recommend her for your special day. Thank you so much Julie for making "our day" the best day, Cal & Cora Julie, please feel free to pass along our email or cell to anyone that needs more details
Julie was SO amazing! She met with us several times, and really got to know us. She is professional, fun and very helpful. What she wrote about us was truly beautiful. Love love love Julie!
Julie was strongly recommended by our photographers. We knew she was perfect for us 5 minutes into the meeting. Her professionalism, attentiveness and graceful humor elevated her above the several other local celebrants we had made contact with.
Julie is amazing. She was not only a wonderful officiant, but she went above and beyond to help corral our exuberant guests and keep the evening on schedule. She was respectful of our intentions and thoughtful in her perfectly crafted words.
Julie was a perfect officiant. We appreciated her easy attitude and her flexibility. She orchestrated the ceremony beautifully, but really allowed it to be about us.
Julie is fantastic! If you don't already know her, you will feel like old friends by the time you share moments with your spouse and her. We were lucky enough to have already called Julie a friend, and were overjoyed she could be our officiant. Love.
Julie did such an amazing job putting our ceremony together and helping us with our vows. She really takes the time to get to know the bride and groom and personalize each celebration as a close friend. I'm so glad we got to work with her!
Julie is a phenomenal officiant. She tailors your ceremony to you, does tons of prep work and spends time with perspective brides & grooms beforehand. She's a pro, hire her...you'll be glad you did!
Julie is such a great celebrant to work with! Planning the ceremony was fun, and Julie made our ceremony beautiful, romantic, funny, and really embodied who we are as a couple.
Julie, you made my daughter and son-in-law's ceremony absolutely perfect by capturing their personalities as individiuals and as a couple in their ceremony. The time you took to know the essence of this unique couple is what made it the best wedding ever!
