  • Julia wants your ceremony to be what you want it to be. This gave us so much freedom in writing it, but we loved also being able to use her templates and resources. Our wedding was interfaith, and Julia has a deep knowledge of how to incorporate/adapt various faith elements if desired. She also knows how to walk the line between serious and casual in her speaking style. This was especially appreciated by our guests. Thank you for everything!

  • Julia made our wedding ceremony so memorable and special! I couldn't have asked for a more perfect ceremony! She is extremely caring and attentive and was focused on crafting a ceremony that mirrored our vision. I was most happy with how she was able to incorporate our multi-faith backgrounds into a fluid, cohesive, and beautiful ceremony. Julia was very prompt and responsive to all our inquiries. Overall, we were extremely happy with her services.

    Thank you so much Jane. Hope you both are very well. Many many years of bliss!

  • Julia was absolutely amazing, from the very first time we talked to her my wife and I had an overwhelming sense of comfort with Julia conducting our ceremony. In our subsequent meetings she took the time to get to know us as a couple and really took an interest in who we are as people and wanted to give us a great foundation to make sure we have a strong lasting marriage. As an interfaith couple we were really looking for someone who could respect both of our beliefs and integrate them into a personable ceremony that fit our personalities. Julia performed our ceremony flawlessly and provided both great intuition but also tremendous support to Angie and I. She was a pleasure to work with and we couldn't have asked for anyone better! I would recommend her to anyone and everyone who is looking for an amazing officiant for their wedding.

  • Julia gave us the most magical wedding ceremony we could have asked for! She was so flexible with the plan for the ceremony and even went above and beyond to offer us more than what we asked for. Julia was very timely as well as professional but she also cared enough to really value our relationship moving forward. Our wedding ceremony brought all the guests to tears and it wouldn't have been the same with her!

  • Julia was wonderful and made our wedding day perfect. She is so kind and understanding and put everyone at ease. During the ceremony both the groom and I were quite nervous and she made us calm in a matter of seconds. I would recommend her to anyone!

  • We feel so lucky that we came across Julia in our search for an ordained minister that was willing to give us a non-religious ceremony. Julia was so respectfully of our wants and our beliefs and listened to what we wanted incorporated into our ceremony. Throughout our wedding prep we skyped with her a couple of times and met with her in person, which helped her to get to know us and who we are as a couple. These meetings were all her suggestion and we see now how important they were to personalize our ceremony. We looked forward to these conversations as she is always so friendly and easy to talk to. During our wedding ceremony she gave us a gift that we'll cherish and which meant so much to us; it was just one of the ways in which Julia makes your ceremony special. Lastly, she saved the day by going out of her way to borrow a microphone and speaker the day before our ceremony as we hadn't thought about the need for one in our ceremony space.

  • We first decided to work with Julia after speaking with her on the phone and we already felt at ease and comfortable with her. She was very flexible with tailoring the ceremony to our style and wishes. Julia was especially great on the day of the wedding when she adapted to our unexpected weather and kept the ceremony light and humorous. Our guests came up to us the rest of the day complimenting her demeanor and how everyone felt warm, welcome and included!

  • Rev Julia was so friendly and really took the time to get to know us as a couple. We wanted a Buddhist aspect and she definitely included that. She made us and the guests laughed, which brought both a serious and lighter side to the ceremony.

  • Reverend Jarvis provided invaluable guidance to us throughout the entire process of planning our interfaith (Catholic-Jewish) wedding ceremony (which was a long journey to gain alignment between the bride and groom and both sets of parts on regarding what the ceremony would entail). Julia made us feel at ease during our initial meeting and helped us find a Rabbi to co-officiate. She also put us in touch with a priest who helped us through the dispensation process. Julia did an amazing job at authentically telling our story during the ceremony. Her and Rabbi Rain were able to beautifully incorporate the elements from both religions that we wanted represented. Our family and friends were very impressed with the interfaith ceremony, which was easily one of the most memorable parts of our wedding day.
