Julie-Ann officiated our wedding in Stratford, Connecticut on December 17th, 2006, the day after my birthday and did a fabulous job. We were having was having a trouble finding a non-denominational wedding officiant we both liked, when I found Julie-Ann on the web. My husband and I met with her and she had us write letters to each other on our expectations, which to this day resonates with us. Many of the things we wrote then were are still so very important to this day. The wedding was unique with us walking hand in hand down the aisle at the beginning of the ceremony. Everyone was confused at first, LOL. But once we were officially married, we then turned towards the audience and linked arms to signify that we were one.Sent on 03/02/2018
Our ceremony was beautiful, everything that we wanted, especially with the short time we had to put it together. I definitely recommend Julie-Ann.

Wonderful, engaging, caring
Julie-Ann was a pleasure to work with for our wedding ceremony! I have nothing but great things to say about her!Sent on 06/09/2019
In the weeks before the ceremony:
She met with us to get to know us, and helped us craft a custom ceremony that really reflected us as a couple. She was patient with us as we asked for a few rounds of revisions to the ceremony text, adding some extra passages in that we felt strongly about including. She was flexible about different ways to incorporate our various faith traditions (we are an interfaith couple). She gave us advice about writing our vows as well, which was really helpful!
During the ceremony itself:
She was wonderful on the day of the ceremony itself -- many members of our family went out of their way to comment on how well she led the ceremony. She was warm and engaging with us and with the crowd. She was able to balance the light-heartedness and joy of the celebration against the seriousness and gravitas that making a life long commitment should be handled with. And when we forgot the actual marriage paperwork and had to run back to the house after the ceremony, she had no qualms about waiting around a little extra time to make everything worked out smoothly. In short, she was a fantastic!

Very personable and friendly! Gave us exactly what we wanted for the ceremony!
Rev. Julie-Anne was attentive to our needs from beginning to end. She came to our house to speak to us one on one about our expectations and what kind of service we wanted for our wedding. She was very knowledgeable about different kinds of services and shared other experiences she has had while marrying other couples. Everything in our service was well spoken and said exactly the way we wanted it to even with a quote that my husband and I had picked out. She was extrenemly personable and kept us up to date about what we wanted to be said at our wedding. I would definitely without hesitation recommend Rev.Julie-Ann for weddings or any other services.Sent on 11/07/2018
