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.

She was the BEST!!!
We could not have asked for a better officiant. She worked with us via phone because we were in a different time zone planning a destination wedding and always returned calls within hours. She showed up early, was perfectly dressed in our color of the ceremony (without knowing what color we choose), climbed some rocks, performed a beautiful ceremony, filed the marriage license that very same day and we had our official certificate the day after we got back from our honeymoon. She was the BEST!!!Sent on 08/01/2019
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.
