Juliana was amazing to work with throughout wedding prep and on the wedding day. She was very personable and easy to talk to the first time we spoke and gave so much practical advice on things I would never have even considered to make the day flow smoothly and photos turn out flawlessly. I felt 100% comfortable with Juliana for her thoroughness and organization. She provided a ceremony reading with beautiful words and a calm demeanor that made us feel comfortable and natural during the ceremony. Juliana was our "guardian" officiant because she was flexible to coach our friend to deliver the service but step in flawlessly when he could not make it last minute due to unforeseen circumstances. Thank you Juliana for helping make our day so special! - Katrin

Truly refreshing to experience
Despite never having met Juliana until about 30 minutes before our elopement, she felt like family! The ceremony was perfect and so in line with our personal values, you would have thought she had known us for years!! She eased our worries and made everybody feel welcome and comfortable. We received many compliments on Juliana's delivery and professionalism. It was truly refreshing to experience a truly modern ceremony that was far from stale and outdated/old school. I would recommend highly Juliana to anyone and everyone! Thank you again!!!

Our expectations were exceeded!
We recently married at the November 16th Pop Up Chapel put on by Love by Lynzie at Evergreen Brickworks. As part of the chapel experience our officiant was arranged for us, so we only met Juliana about half an hour before our ceremony. Our expectations were exceeded when she proactively approached us in the waiting area and introduced herself in a warm and friendly manner. When we were ready, she took us aside to ensure that we were comfortable and familiar with all aspects of our upcoming ceremony, and to review all the language that would be used to ensure that it was in line with our values. During the ceremony Juliana was expressive and genuine. She provided additional guidance as needed while ensuring a seamless experience. Our family and friends all expressed to us afterwards that they felt she did an excellent job being enthusiastic and engaging. She even followed up via email the next day to communicate her best wishes, and to advise that our documents had been appropriately filed. In summary, Juliana was professional, efficient, sincere, and accommodating. We would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone in need of an officiant for their big day!

Juliana Belinko - Officiant
Juliana officiated our wedding on October 13, 2018 and we could not be happier with how professional, helpful, supportive and genuine she was. She was perfect.
Obviously my wife and I wanted to meet with our officiant before committing, but we both knew very early into our meeting with Juliana that she would be the officiant for our wedding. I believe we emailed to secure her on the car ride home.
Juliana's warm and gentle demeanor was perfect for our ceremony. She sent us a directional overview for our ceremony that we were able to put our own personal touch on, and include a reading.
She handled all our legal documents and certificates, and let us know what we needed to do in advance of the wedding in that regard.
On the day of the wedding, she spoke beautifully and ensured that my wife and I focused on each other throughout the ceremony, which we appreciated.
Anyone looking for an officiant would be lucky to have Juliana as a part of their ceremony. We highly recommend.

Excellent Wedding Officiant
Juliana was fantastic! From our first in-person meeting she was incredibly professional, organized, caring and cool. She lead us through every step of the wedding process and was so helpful / supportive during the ceremony and vow writing time. On the Wedding Day she was punctual and performed a lovely service for us. She also provided some great 'best practices' and helpful insights from her previous wedding experiences that truly allowed us to enjoy and appreciate our big day even more! We would definitely recommend - Thanks Juliana!
