Hiya! I'm Julia!
And I'm a wedding officiant! My biggest goal is to hold space for my couples in a heartfelt and genuine way, allowing them to have a truly memorable and sacred experience.
Every ceremony that I write is crafted personally to represent the unique dynamic of each relationship and no one ceremony is the same. I welcome a collaborative approach in the process of crafting my ceremonies, so that couples are confident that they are getting exactly what they want.
I love weaving together elements of nature, ancient traditions, and spirituality, without being dogmatic. Whether you call it God, The Universe, Spirit, or feel unclear as to whether or not a higher power exists, my hope is that your ceremony is a beautiful reflection of your unique love story.
My adventures as an officiant all started with Jon and Maegan
Once upon a time, many moons ago, they came to one of my yoga classes. Now, they're two of my greatest friends. And Jon's brother is also now my fiancé! You could say we are all like family (well, because we are).
When Jon and Maegan asked me to marry them a few years ago, of course I said 'YES' and I basically have never looked back.
A little bit about me....
I have been a "Space-Holder" (as I love to call it) since 2006, mostly taking shape as a
I've worked a lot with populations that need extra support, like adults who are incarcerated and teenagers in recovery for substance abuse.
Simply put, I love Humans. I just do.
And while I sometimes struggle with the darkness that us humans are capable of, I choose to firmly believe in our ability to heal and grow, every single day.
Starting every ceremony with a moment of mindfulness and breath is central to how I hold space. This really allows you to feel present with your person and fully absorb the magic of such a beautiful and sacred moment.
Oh, and side note: I love words. like, A LOT.
I believe both speaking and writing are gifts to be treasured, to be held as sacred.
When I teach, I've always felt that the timing and order of words are a true art, and when I write, I do so from my soul. My hope is that you can feel the essence of art, truth, and beauty in your wedding ceremony.
