Julie is a beacon of light for our marriage
Julie, is a breath of fresh air and a wonderful beacon of light when planning a wedding. She truly is more than an officiant. She was wealth of knowledge and assistant to us when some wedding planning was falling through for our elopement to York Maine. With her guidance and fortitude we were able to keep our wedding as special as I dreamed. Her officiating and representation of vows and meaning of marriage meant so much to John and I on our wedding day. She maintains a grounded space and sets the tone of love for the couple. I could never imagine my day with out Julie and our photographer Patrick. She is a gem!Sent on 05/09/2019

Julie was such a joy to work with. We interviewed several officiants over the phone and immediately felt comfortable with her. She has a really calming presence which was very appreciated leading up to, and on the day of, the wedding!Sent on 06/16/2017
We weren't really sure what we wanted for our ceremony, but Julie makes it really easy by sending an outline with many options for each section. We felt like we got to write our own custom ceremony, though we actually didn't write a single word! I would absolutely recommend Julie as an officiant for your wedding in Maine.

Julie Draper is The Best
Julie was nothing less than amazing !! From the first day I called her in tears because a local hotel would not allow our elopement to take place on their grounds to the day of my dream ceremony on the beach when she gave me a huge hug to calm my nerves ....she was there every step of the way. She provides a unique and comprehensive ceremony guide that allows you make your ceremony truly your own. She was an invaluable resource for the other details - photographer, flowers, hair etc. I highly recommend Julie .Sent on 05/08/2019
Choosing an officiant for your wedding used to be easy...there was no choice, you simply had whoever your church or synagogue assigned to you. Today's couples have the opportunity to plan every aspect of their ceremonies, making them truly personal. Julie Draper is the kind of officiant that every bride and groom dream of having at their wedding. She is warm, loving and gracious. Her ceremonies and settings are unique to each couple, with vows and elements that reflect the one-of-a-kind love that brings that couple and their guests together. Julie dresses beautifully and shows a real reverence for what she does. This is clearly not a "job", it's a calling. You will love her.
