    our ceremony was perfect because of Juliana!

    Juliana was the perfect officiant for our ceremony. She is so kind and welcoming. From beginning to end, she made us feel comfortable and involved us in the whole process of the ceremony writing. She put everything into perspective at the rehearsal ceremony and having her there put my fiance and I at ease, knowing the ceremony was going to be everything we wanted. She walked through everything, made us laugh and most of all made us feel present in the moment. When it came to the big day, she was very professional and interacted with both my fiance and myself and everyone involved in the ceremony. She guided is through the whole thing and made it feel so intimate. She made our ceremony everything we wanted and more.

    Juliana is fantastic!

    My husband and I were beyond thrilled to have had Juliana officiate our wedding recently. During our first phone call, Juliana was very kind, informative and genuine. We knew right away that she was the perfect fit. Juliana arrived early on our wedding day and made sure that we were comfortable and prepared. The ceremony Juliana created for us was beautiful in every way. Juliana is very well-spoken and has such a calming presence; my nerves quickly subsided. We received so many positive comments about the ceremony throughout the night. We would highly recommend Juliana to anyone!

    Juliana is such a lovely woman!

    Juliana was such a great addition to our wedding day. She came with the biggest smile on her face, had everything prepared for when we walked in and made sure to address any of our requests. She spoke clearly and loud for our guests and added a couple of fun pieces to her script. She is very thorough and just a sweet woman!

    Outstanding experience being officiated by Juliana, TWICE!!!

    I met Juliana for the first time when I took her yoga class and after hearing that she was also a wedding officiant, I reached out to her in 2019 to set up a meeting to discuss my upcoming wedding in 2020 and my husband and I knew right after that meeting that she would be the perfect person to officiate for us. Very much like my experience with her during her yoga class, she just brings a calming and soothing energy to everyone around her, and I cannot stress how important that was in 2020 when we were navigating the COVID 19 situation while trying to plan a wedding. We ended up postponing our wedding to 2021, but we were lucky to be able to have Juliana perform a ceremony for us in October 2020, and we were thrilled to have her again in August this year with our close friends at our wedding. Through the whole process, she was constantly checking in to make sure that everyone was doing well and she was incredibly organized and detail oriented, which really helped us keep track of things as my husband and I kept shifting from wedding planning mode to wedding postponement mode due to the uncertainty around COVID restrictions for social gatherings. When she heard that we had family members who couldn't travel to Canada from Asia to attend our wedding, she even helped suggest live streaming the ceremony and connected us with an amazing videographer. Needless to say, Juliana was absolutely essential to the success of our wedding and she just adds so much value to the entire process. We would definitely recommend Juliana to anyone who is looking for an officiant for their special day!

    Great Officiant!

    Juliana had welcomed structure and was kind towards my partner and me. I can tell that she truly loves what she does and she immediately melted into our ceremony and matched the tone and language of our family. She is dependable and eased a lot of anxiety we had about speaking in front of a large group of people.

    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!

    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!

    The perfect officiant for our special day!

    Juliana was the perfect officiant for our wedding. She was able to work with us to create a ceremony that we felt represented who we were, provided clarity every step of the way leading up to the big day, and made us feel at ease before the ceremony by walking us through it and ensuring we were comfortable with the details. A total professional end to end, and also just a lovely human that my wife and I enjoyed working with. I would definitely recommend her to anyone.
