Juliana was exceptional!
Working with Juliana was wonderful to work with! She was professional, attentive and helped us create a memorable ceremony. We loved her approach to the ceremony and focus on being present in the moment. She was a great resource for our written vows as well, making sure they were perfectly balanced. She walked us through the ceremony leading up to the wedding as well as the day of, while it was super helpful to know the flow upfront, in the moment you often forget what you were supposed to say/do/coming up next but she was right there whispering instructions to ensure a seamless and flawless ceremony. I also appreciate her ability to scoot out of the camera view for those picture perfect shots!
Juliana is wonderful and I would highly recommend!Sent on 27/11/2020

Warm, attentive & thoughtful.
Juliana performed our ceremony at our Pop Up Chapel on September 18th and we were so thrilled to have her presence at our ceremony. She made us feel so comfortable and at ease leading up to the moment and presented her words with such care and grace. Given the nature of the PUC we had no idea who would be officiating. For someone who did not meet us in advance she still managed to capture exactly what we would’ve wanted had we gone through the process of hiring our own officiant. Her words were thoughtful and kind and she truly showed pure joy in what she was doing. Many of our guests commented on what a lovely presence she was in our ceremony and we could not agree more. Thank you so much!Sent on 26/09/2020

Wonderful experience with Juliana
When my partner and I decided to get married in August 2020 I asked my close friend, who happens to be a wedding planner, who she would recommend as an officiant. Juliana was top of our list as she seemed to align closely with our values and not wanting the usual language around marriage in our ceremony, but something that reflected our lifelong commitment and partnership. Juliana walked us through the whole process and although we weren't able to meet in person before the wedding because we live in different cities, we were able to connect over the phone and co-design a beautiful ceremony with Juliana that reflected our values and exactly what we wanted. She made the process seamless and it was a beautiful day, thank you Juliana.Sent on 26/10/2020

Juliana was fantastic. She led us through the journey from start to finish, from creating a ceremony that aligned with who we are as a couple and our values, to easing my nerves before I walked down the aisle. She held the room and helped to start the day exactly as we had visioned. She was always responsive on emails and was great to work with.Sent on 12/02/2020

Personable, Professional and Poised!
Juliana spoke beautifully, was well organized, and (not to be underrated) paid attention to what we wanted in our ceremony. We would highly recommend her.Sent on 26/11/2019
