  • We are thrilled to have found Julie as the Celebrant who officiated our wedding.    She was an immensely important part of the whole event.   We couldn't be happier with her participation in planning and performing our ceremony.  After our plans for a big June , then it was August,  New York wedding in front of our friends and family had to be postponed until gathering was safe and covid pandemic no longer a threat, we decided to have an intimate ceremony at home.  We really wanted to be married to each other. The BIG celebration In New York would be later. I could give you a long story but really the most important part of it is, Julie was a great find and incredibly easy to work with.   Her ease and kindness immediately erased any sense of disappointment or hesitation we had in doing a stay at home wedding with a completely different vibe.    Julie is charming and thoughtful and made us feel comfortable.   Her presence and demeanor was reassuring, warm and we felt l...

  • Seriously look no further, Julie was the most amazing wedding officiant! She worked with us closely for over a year before our wedding to ensure the ceremony was exactly what we wanted. We aren’t religious and really wanted a light hearted, but meaningful ceremony and she absolutely delivered a perfect and beyond our expectations. All of our guests approached us at the reception and told us how much they enjoyed the ceremony and how unique it was! Thank you so much Julie for your amazing contribution to our wedding day.

  • Recently married at Barboursville Vineyard with Julie Trump officiating. Julie brought a warm and refreshing perspective to our wedding celebration... she was professional and adapted easily to our fairly complex and "out of the box" ceremony. With her expertise, knowledge, and experience, we were able to create a smoothly flowing ceremony that fused Celtic, early Christian, and our own Personal Spirituality together into something remarkable and special. The entire celebration fit perfectly in the setting of Barboursville Ruins. We would enthusiastically recommend Julie to everyone looking for an Officiant with a fresh perspective on traditional weddings.

  • Julie wrote a beautiful ceremony for my husband and I! It was jovial and lighthearted while being intimate and moving. We received so many compliments on the ceremony from our guests! Julie really took the time to get to know my husband and I and allowed us to provide feedback on draft ceremonies before crafting the final version. She really captured our personalities and journey and the final product was a perfect representation of our individual love story. We can't thank you enough Julie! Five stars across the board!

  • Julie was a fantastic officiant for our wedding. Her involvement started 7 months ago when we found her on weddinwire and were starting planning for our DIY wedding weekend at Wolftrap farm in Gordonsville, VA in October. We were looking for a non denominational officiant with a story telling background who could really capture the moments of both how we met as a couple as well as our journey into marriage. Julie was able to keep us on track with when she needed specific info from both of us (in the form of a questionnaire each of us received and shared only the answers with her) in order for her to tailor the ceremony intimately around us. We both wrote our own vows for each other as well. Julie was able to integrate her own touch in the form of quotes, poems and excerpts from famous figures, philosophers and playwrights that mirrored perfectly the flow of the ceremony as well as various options for additions to the ceremony to display the physical moments of union between our ...

    I have tears in my eyes ... thank you so much for the privilege of being your Officiant. As I looked around at your family and friends, it was immediately apparent that this was a very sophisticated, astute, artistic group of very hip friends and very loving family members (most all from Philadelphia and parts North). I have to say, your wedding was a personal high for me. Thank you so much. I will never forget your wedding. You did it yourself, and it shined.

  • Julie did a fabulous job bringing our vision for our wedding ceremony to life! She is a great listener who helped us channel how we wanted our ceremony to feel and did a great job integrating all of our (many) ideas.

  • Julie was the officiant for our wedding at Pippin Hill Farm on 9/20/19 and she went above and beyond. She wrote the most touching and beautiful ceremony for us and when I first reviewed it, I was in tears. She described our relationship perfectly. She was very easy to work with and was amazing at communicating with my wedding planner and with my husband and I. The ceremony was the perfect balance of being sentimental, funny, and traditional which was exactly what we wanted. After the wedding, many people have told me how beautiful and special the ceremony was. If you are looking for a wedding officiant, I would recommend Julie over and over again. She is truly the best!

  • Julie was an incredible officiant for our wedding. We enjoyed working with her on every step throughout the process. She provides a wealth of knowledge and information, which is so helpful when you’re planning the ceremony whether you know exactly what you want or have no idea. She takes the time to make everything perfect and happily allows as many edits as you would like. She’s kind, flexible, reliable, and well-spoken. We could not have asked for a better officiant. We would recommend her to anyone and everyone.

  • What can I even say - Julie is amazing. She offers an over-the-phone consultation so she can learn more about the wedding and us as a couple and so we could learn more about her. She also offers a no-strings-attached consultation in person where she actually drove an hour to meet with us and start getting detailed ideas about the ceremony. It was very obvious to me that Julie is an expert from that first phone call: she asked how my husband and I met within the first few minutes of the call, and as I babbled about how it seemed like the universe just plopped us down in front of each other she said "so would you say your relationship is serendipitous?" without a second thought. SHE WAS EXACTLY RIGHT! Julie found all of the right words for us. It's very clear that she has done this a lot because of how talented she is, but our ceremony was still unique to just us. Our guests laughed, they cried... and I cried a lot (from happiness)! I can't imagine a more perfect experience with a celebr... Read more

  • Julie was fabulous to work with. From our first meeting, through the ceremony drafting process all the way up to our wedding, Julie was very flexible and helpful throughout the process. Julie helped curate the most perfect ceremony that truly reflected us as a couple. We were thrilled with her services and thought the ceremony turned out beautifully! We had many family members comment on how fabulous the ceremony was and complimented her public speaking skills. We are so lucky to have had the opportunity to work with Julie. Many thanks for helping make our wedding so special!

  • My husband and I LOVED Julie! She was very friendly and flexible with our schedules. Her custom ceremony was everything we were hoping for and more. She was open to any and all changes we wanted to make (but we didn't have many because she is so talented)! Julie's services are worth the little extra $ you will spend compared to other officiants. We are so grateful for her!

  • Julie was outstanding throughout the entire wedding planning process. She wrote a tearjerking yet funny ceremony and assured everything was perfect for our big day. When we were slow on writing our vows she even put the time in to contact us individually to assist in the process.

  • Julie was an absolute dream to work with. From our first meeting over wine at our wedding venue together, she understood the vibe, energy and direction we were hoping for in our wedding ceremony. She crafted the most beautiful, personal, intimate and sweet ceremony. The way she delivered the ceremony brought everyone to tears. We could not have been happier with our experience as well as the ceremony components. We received so many compliments about are ceremony; words like " the most beautiful wedding ceremony Ive ever heard" " so intimate and personal - it was totally you" "Ive never been so emotional during a wedding ceremony before - it was beautiful." We are so thrilled to have met Julie and had her there for our big day. All our love!

  • From our first meeting over Skype, we knew we wanted Julie to officiate our wedding. Julie is kind and charming, passionate about her work, and a good listener. Unlike other officiants we interviewed, she wasn’t dogmatic about the content and flow of ceremonies, and she made it clear that each ceremony is is completely customized to the personalities of the couple. She immediately “got” the vibe we wanted for our ceremony and she didn’t try to persuade us to do anything that wasn’t “us” or that we didn’t want to do. Once we hired her, she sent each of us a questionnaire asking not just standard questions like how we met or what we like about each other, but also deeper, more thoughtful questions about our values, our families, and our vision for our future as a couple. One area where she particularly shined was in picking quotes and readings peppered throughout the ceremony. We made it very clear that we didn’t want conventional or cheesy readings that appear at seemi... Read more
