My husband and I LOVED Julie! She was very friendly and flexible with our schedules. Her custom ceremony was everything we were hoping for and more. She was open to any and all changes we wanted to make (but we didn't have many because she is so talented)! Julie's services are worth the little extra $ you will spend compared to other officiants. We are so grateful for her!Sent on 07/10/2019

A true expert and professional
What can I even say - Julie is amazing. She offers an over-the-phone consultation so she can learn more about the wedding and us as a couple and so we could learn more about her. She also offers a no-strings-attached consultation in person where she actually drove an hour to meet with us and start getting detailed ideas about the ceremony. It was very obvious to me that Julie is an expert from that first phone call: she asked how my husband and I met within the first few minutes of the call, and as I babbled about how it seemed like the universe just plopped us down in front of each other she said "so would you say your relationship is serendipitous?" without a second thought. SHE WAS EXACTLY RIGHT! Julie found all of the right words for us. It's very clear that she has done this a lot because of how talented she is, but our ceremony was still unique to just us. Our guests laughed, they cried... and I cried a lot (from happiness)! I can't imagine a more perfect experience with a celebrant. Julie is top-tier. I also did all of the wedding planning myself without a coordinator or planner. Julie stepped in and made sure that the ceremony went smoothly from start to finish and helped wrangle our wedding party. Because of her expertise and passion, I didn't even feel the pressure of not having someone else planning my wedding for me. Thank you for everything Julie!Sent on 09/10/2019

Julie was outstanding throughout the entire wedding planning process. She wrote a tearjerking yet funny ceremony and assured everything was perfect for our big day. When we were slow on writing our vows she even put the time in to contact us individually to assist in the process.Sent on 10/12/2018

Julie was an absolute dream to work with. From our first meeting over wine at our wedding venue together, she understood the vibe, energy and direction we were hoping for in our wedding ceremony. She crafted the most beautiful, personal, intimate and sweet ceremony. The way she delivered the ceremony brought everyone to tears. We could not have been happier with our experience as well as the ceremony components. We received so many compliments about are ceremony; words like " the most beautiful wedding ceremony Ive ever heard" " so intimate and personal - it was totally you" "Ive never been so emotional during a wedding ceremony before - it was beautiful."Sent on 06/12/2018
We are so thrilled to have met Julie and had her there for our big day. All our love!

I reached out to Julie a bit last minute about a month out from my wedding. I had read her reviews and they were all glowing and it seemed that she put a considerable amount of time into personalizing ceremonies and making each one an experience of its own. I can absolutely say that she did not disappoint. She wrote an absolutely stunning ceremony for us from scratch. It had a remarkable amount of details lining the progression and individuality of our relationship. She took a moment in the ceremony to look at each of us and tell us what the other loved about us. Everything about it was magical. We had many many people gush about the how beautiful it was and also many people tell us it was the best ceremony they had ever been to. On top of making the most important moment of our lives perfect she was very professional, responsive and attentive. She sent her ceremony script to us and allowed us to edit any changes we wanted to make directly to the document. I cannot rave enough about Julie and choosing her to preform your ceremony will be a decision you will be greatful your u made for the rest of your life.Sent on 12/28/2017

Having Julie officiate our wedding was one of the best and easiest decisions made when planning our special day. Her energy was the perfect addition to our ceremony that was already so beautifully written. The detail and thought that was put into our ceremony was priceless. I highly recommend hiring Julie to officiate your wedding. I’d hire her again in a heartbeat. It was almost sad that our day came and went since it meant less correspondence with such a beautiful person. Thank you again Julie!Sent on 12/26/2017

Julie was a pleasure to work with and made things so simple for us. My husband and I were lucky to meet her for coffee prior to booking her and that put our mind at ease. We could tell she was organized and would create a personalized ceremony that we would love. Julie crafted a beautiful ceremony for us and included us in the process to ensure it was exactly what we wanted. The rehearsal and ceremony were quick exactly like we wanted. We received numerous compliments from family and friends about how beautiful our ceremony was. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a nonreligious, personalized ceremony!Sent on 10/19/2017

Julie was wonderful! Our September 30th wedding was on top of the blue ridge mountains, and she helped out ceremony felt so intimate and personal. She worked with us to develop a script for our ceremony, and helped to make it a reality! My family even commented afterward how beautiful it was. Would recommend to all of my friends and family looking for a personal, well-rounded officiant who can cater your ceremony to how you envision it!Sent on 12/26/2017

Julie was able to help us have a wonderful wedding day! We were involved in the writing with Julie’s help and guidance. The process helped us grow closer as a couple. The ceremony was everything we wanted and made our day very special.Sent on 01/08/2018
Julie married us on our front porch with a few friends and family. We had the best day ever!
We recommend Julie to anyone who wants to get a great start in the journey as a married couple.

Julie was a pleasure to work with. She takes her time to create a beautiful, personalized ceremony. She was willing to meet with us twice -- our initial meeting and another time to go over small details to tie everything up. She was very flexible and was able to edit our ceremony until it was perfect for us.Sent on 06/16/2017
She is much more than just an officiant. She helped us with the order of the processional (where bridesmaids and groomsmen, etc. enter) and also reached out to our vendors and wedding planner to ensure the ceremony ran smoothly. We also just received a sweet gift in the mail from her -- a formal copy of our ceremony. Julie was excellent, and I highly recommend her!
Lauren · Married on 05/06/2017
From day one Julie was part of our team. She drafted our ceremony and we used Google Docs to finalize the details. Given that we're located in Northern Virginia, the process was simple, collaborative and not stressful. We worked closely with her to create a ceremony that truly told our story and had meaning to us. Julie was a big part in helping us to add creative and unique elements. Our guests laughed, cried and laughed again. We're still hearing from guests that our ceremony was the best they've ever experienced. And we couldn't agree more! Thank you Julie for being part of our Dream Team!Sent on 07/17/2017

It is hard to express how wonderful Julie was to work with. She helped us share our lighthearted love story that our guests told us was so memorable and unique; many commented that it was a truly enjoyable ceremony to witness. Julie is confident and organized and we felt very much at ease with her throughout the wedding planning process. She was thoughtful and flexible, quick to respond, and crafted a ceremony that exceeded our expectations.Sent on 02/25/2017
Thank you, Julie!

Julie was absolutely amazing! She wrote a beautiful ceremony that told the story of my husband and I's relationship and life together. It was so personal and special. We got so many compliments from guests about how wonderful the ceremony was and how great it was that she made it so personal. Leading up to the wedding, Julie was very quick to respond to emails and calls. She even sent reminder emails about our marriage license. Just days after the wedding, she sent us a beautiful hard copy of our ceremony and sent the papers for our marriage license out immediately. I would highly recommend Julie as an officiant; it was wonderful to work with her!Sent on 12/22/2016
Sally · Married on 09/10/2016
Julie was great to work with and crafted an amazing ceremony for our wedding! When we first started looking for an Officiant we were a bit clueless as to what exactly what we wanted but starting at our first meeting over coffee she made us both feel at ease with her charming personality. Over the course of the months leading up to the wedding she crafted a very warm and personalized ceremony and song list that incorporated our feedback and ended up being exactly what we wanted, even if we didn't know what that was going in!Sent on 10/22/2016
Our guests complimented how personalized the ceremony was to who we are as a couple. She was also very timely with all of our paperwork and it was in our mailbox when we got home from our honeymoon. I highly recommend Julie to anyone looking for an Officiant for their upcoming wedding.
Erin · Married on 06/27/2016
Whether you know exactly what you want, or you aren't sure, Julie will help write and design the perfect ceremony. The more time you spend talking and sharing with her, answering her questions and letting her get to know you, the more you will be amazed at how well she captures your love, your story, and the meaning that this special day has to you. Our guests were very impressed as well and many said it was the best ceremony they had ever experienced.Sent on 09/01/2016
Megan · Married on 06/04/2016
Julie was absolutely amazing to work with! As soon as my fiance and I met her, we knew we wanted her to be our officiant. She crafted the most beautiful ceremony for our wedding, which brought me to tears the first time I read it. It was personalized and more unique than a traditional wedding ceremony, which was exactly what we wanted. So many people I've talked to after our wedding said the ceremony was their favorite part. Julie was so easy to communicate with, very flexible and is an absolute professional. I can't recommend her enough!Sent on 06/14/2016
Janelle · Married on 05/14/2016
Julie went above & beyond to make sure our wedding ceremony shined. She customized our entire ceremony to our relationship, our values, and our world view. She listened to our story and crafted a beautiful, genuine, unique ceremony. She has a lovely personality and calming presence. We always received quick, thorough responses and she kept us on track helping avoid additional stress before the wedding. She made herself available and helped us work through every aspect of the ceremony. We absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for a wedding officiant!Sent on 07/11/2016

The best officiant you could ask for!
WOW! Julie Trump made our ceremony the most beautiful and connecting experience of our lives. I cannot tell you how amazing it was to have the solemnity and ritual of a religious ceremony (without being religious) that also captured the humor, the personality, and the reality of our love. Julie helped us and encouraged us each step of the way in writing our vows. She used information we provided her to tailor a ceremony to us, but gave us the ability to edit it and add and take out things, so it was distinctively us. She gave great suggestions. EVERYONE at our wedding laughed, cried, and commented on how amazing our ceremony was. It was authentic, it was beautiful, it was us. And Julie helped deliver it perfectly. She even brings a PA! She is the sweetest, most easy-going, but organized and professional officiant. She was PERFECT! I really do not know how we got so lucky. I found Julie online, and took a chance. I'm so glad I did. You could not have a better officiant. She takes care of the details you will forget!! Thank you, Julie! So much, for everything! Our ceremony was PERFECTION! We plan on printing and framing parts of it in our home.Sent on 05/08/2019

Julie Trump was officiant and creator of the special touches in the ceremony itself that made our wedding unique and memorable. She is sensitive, fun, insightful, and knowledgeable about all the details that combined to make our very private wedding day just perfect! We will be forever grateful Julie.Sent on 11/24/2015
Darcey · Married on 09/12/2015
My husband and I were very specific about the type of wedding we wanted, yet we had no idea how to put it all together. Since neither of us regularly attend a church, we didn't feel a pastor would be appropriate. We found Julie via the knot app & met with her for lunch. She really helped us navigate through all our ideas and form it together into a cohesive ceremony. She had lots of great suggestions about readings and symbolism and different cultural ceremonies, as we wanted a little bit of Celtic and Native American as well as Christian aspects to our wedding. That may sound a little out there, but Julie brought it all together in the most beautiful way. She was very quick to respond to our emails and sent us the ceremony draft over and over until we got it just right. Her services are very reasonably priced. She made it a point to coordinate with our DJ, day-of coordinator and venue owner & even provided music cue sheets so that everyone was on the same page. We can't say enough good things about Julie.Sent on 10/11/2015
Cynthia · Married on 09/05/2015
Finding Julie Trump was a stroke of wonderful luck! While her fees were more than what we had planned to spend, we quickly realized that we were also getting a lot more from Julie than we had expected from an officiant. She worked diligently and patiently to help us to craft a beautiful ceremony that reflected our values and personalities. She also wrote a pitch-perfect celebrant’s address that was personal, warm, and funny. In the end, the ceremony was better than we could imagine. Our guests also loved it, with some calling it the “most meaningful wedding ceremony they’d ever attended”. Julie is also a lovely person, and we greatly enjoyed working with her. We couldn’t be more pleased!Sent on 10/08/2015
