INFO FOR OFFICIANT

What officiant services do you provide?
Interfaith Ceremony, Non-religious Ceremony, Single Religion Ceremony
What religious affiliations do you serve?
Agnostic, Baha'i Faith, Buddhist, Christian (no denomination), Christian - Anglican, Christian - Baptist, Christian - Catholic, Christian - Episcopalian, Christian - Lutheran, Christian - Methodist, Christian - Mormon, Christian - Orthodox, Christian - Presbyterian, Christian - Quaker, Evangelical, Hindu, Islam, Jainism, Jewish, Muslim, Shinto, Sikhism, Taoist
Can you accommodate the hearing impaired?
Yes
Are you willing to perform a ceremony at a non-religious site?
Most of the weddings I officiate are at non-religious sites.
What is your attire for the ceremony?
I usually wear a robe but can also wear a suit or dress if that would be more appropriate.
Are you flexible in the wording used throughout the ceremony, including the vows?
Absolutely. I have a ceremony workbook that couples use as a starting point, and then we get as creative as they want from there! I enjoy weaving in the ideas and stories that couples tell me into the ceremony. The process is a collaboration and the end result is a totally unique ceremony.
Do you allow the couple to write their own vows, if desired?
Of course!
Do you have a list of readings pre-selected, from which the couple must choose?
No. Couples may choose any readings they wish.
How long are your ceremonies?
My ceremonies average about 20 minutes long.
Do you require that premarital counseling be done?
I don't require but highly recommend premarital counseling. In the midst of all the fun and stress of planning a wedding, it gives you a chance to take a breath and focus some time on what the wedding is all about: your relationship and your marriage. I offer marriage prep sessions to engaged or newlywed couples starting at $195 for an initial package of 3 or 4 sessions. I am a trained facilitator for Prepare-Enrich: www.prepare-enrich.com and use their materials in my sessions.
Are you willing to perform pre-ceremony rehearsals?
Yes.
Do you supply a sound system?
No.

My husband and I were looking for an wedding officiant who also offered premarital counseling, which we thought important. After meeting with Julie, we knew that she was not only someone that we could trust with our ceremony, but that we were excited to meet with during our Marriage Prep sessions. During all three sessions, she was great at facilitating discussion.

For the ceremony, Julie has a workbook of options to choose from which helped to narrow things down, but she still was open to any changes we wanted. On the day of the wedding, she brought such great energy. Countless people came up to us at our reception raving about Julie which reaffirmed our own feelings that she really was able to communicate the love and warmth that we share for each other and the friends and family who were there.

We definitely recommend Rev. Julie Price and Creative Ceremony to any couple looking for a warmhearted officiant to make their day special.

Reverend Julie Price was the best officiant we could hope for! As soon as we met her at our first consultation, we knew we wanted her to officiate our wedding. She made us feel so at ease and she had a wonderful sense of humor. I loved the workbook she provides her couples to go through and hand pick the layout of their ceremony; what a great tool! I also really liked that she read the personal passages during our ceremony that my husband and I wrote about each other privately. She also added her own personal passages that were so perfect and really showed her great personality and sense of humor. Our ceremony was terrific! Thank you again, Julie!

We thoroughly enjoyed working with Rev Julie Price. In addition to providing helpful tools that allowed us to craft a wedding ceremony that was personalized for what we wanted, Julie also went out of her way to get to know each of us individually and as a couple. This effort was clear to our guests, many of whom went out of their way to compliment us on the ceremony as well as Julie’s thoughtful and heartfelt words. We also had the privelege of taking advantage of Julie’s Marriage Prep Sessions which both allowed us to build upon our relationship with Julie and provided a variety of tools and frameworks that helped facilitate many of the important converaations we wanted to have in advance of our wedding. We would highly recommend Julie Price for your wedding ceremony!

Rev. Julie Price married my wife and I back in May of this year (2014). Prior to the ceremony, she worked with us to ensure the ceremony was what we were looking for and that we were both comfortable with her. She sincerely cares about tailoring the ceremony to the couple and she was very flexible with us to make sure we could confirm that everything was squared away prior to the big day. For what it's worth, I am a Marine and a dude- who was initially hesitant about having a female officiant. My wife and I are forever grateful to Julie for how awesome our ceremony was and we give her our highest recommendation. If your looking for a professional, classy and caring officiant- Rev. Julie Price is who you want.

We cannot express how incredible Julie is! From her marriage preparation sessions to the big day, she has been amazing to work with. Her guidance has been immeasurably helpful - not just in working out the details of our ceremony, but also in helping us better understand ourselves, our relationship and what we want our marriage to be. The ceremony she delivered was absolutely perfect. We are an interfaith couple and Julie seamlessly incorporated elements from both our backgrounds into the ceremony. The marriage address she wrote for us was really touching and meant a lot to us. Our guests kept telling us all night how beautiful and unique the ceremony was. We are so grateful Julie was a part of this special time for us!

My husband and I did the pre-marriage classes and ceremony with Julie, and it was wonderful. Julie has such a calming presence. She is easy to talk to, very understanding, and kind. We greatly enjoyed working with Julie and doing our "homework." Her ceremony booklet was easy to use and creative. She was very flexible with our adding some parts in and taking some parts out. The ceremony was a total hit, and we got many compliments on it. It was uniquely ours, but still managed to be classic. She was so comfortable with us and in front of a crowd. Julie added so much to our day.

Finding the officiant was the one task I assigned to my husband, so when he came back to me after 2 days and said he found someone I was more than a bit hesitant. (especially after I had been searching for over 2 weeks and came up with nothing) All that changed the moment I met Julie. She was personable and charming and funny and makes you feel instantly at ease, like you've known her forever. She was extremely organized and the wedding ceremony workbook she provides presents you with tons of options to make your ceremony everything you could ever imagine you wanted. She also works well under pressure and her easy smile makes even the most stressful of situations bearable. (Mine included a car crash on the road leading to the venue which had traffic so delayed when my ceremony was supposed to start @ 6 there were only 17 people of the 110 expected on site) Despite having to remove some of the ceremony components due to darkness (the ceremony was outside with NO lights so we were all basically making stuff up as we couldn't read any of the notes :-), it was still everything we'd hoped it would be and that was due to Julie. She is the absolute best and I would reccomend her to ANYONE thinking about getting married.

Julie is absolutely wonderful!!! She was such a pleasure to work with during the planning process - so professional, organized, friendly and down to earth. The ceremony was our favorite part of our wedding day!! Julie has such a warm & joyful demeanor which made us feel so at ease during the ceremony. Even though we had only met a few times (and emailed often), she created the feeling that she knew us - and that made everything even more special. We cannot thank Julie enough for making our day so memorable! Throughout the evening, our family and friends commented on how beautiful our ceremony was. If the option of a 10 star rating were available, that's what we would have given Julie. We highly recommend Julie to everyone getting married - you will love working with her!!! Thank you for everything Julie!!!! :)

We had our wedding in our backyard and we were so lucky to have found Julie. When we first met her, we knew she was a perfect fit for what we were looking for. She gave us a ceremony booklet where we were able to choose all of the prayers and readings.
About a 1/2 hour before the ceremony was about to begin it started to rain. We planned for the ceremony to be on our deck (which was not under a tent). Julie was amazing and immediately took out her phone to check the radar map. About 15 minutes after the original start time, Julie said we should try to have the ceremony on the deck because it looked like a break in the rain for a few minutes. She told us if it began to rain during the ceremony we would move everyone under the tent. I loved how she took charge and made a decision because at that moment I wasn't sure what we should do.
The ceremony was so beautiful. Everyone commented on how personal it was. I think the best compliment to Julie is from my cousin who has been dating the same man for many years. She said, "Your ceremony made me want to get married!" So many people said they were crying because it was so perfect for us. I would highly recommend Julie to anyone. I can't think of any reason why you would pick anyone else!

Julie officiated our wedding and she was absolutely fabulous. She made everything so easy for us and we could not imagine our wedding without her. During our initial meeting Julie brought a binder full of ceremony details and explained that we could customize our wedding ceremony in any way that we like. We chose several prayers and recognitions from her and we also provided her with new pieces that we wanted to add to our ceremony. Instead of the traditional Unity Ceremony we had a Wine Box / Letter Ceremony and I typed up what I wanted her to read and she did such a great job. We also decided to write our own vowes and she was so helpful throughout the entire process. She encouraged us to be ourselves and read over the vowes before the wedding day. She really got to know us during our in-person meetings and through our emails. She used a lot of that information (i.e. how my husband and I first met) during our ceremony to make it very personable. She did such an amazing job. She had all of our guests laughing and crying at different times throughout the ceremony. Everyone praised Julie and how outstanding she was - she made a real connection with everyone. She also worked with our DJ and the Hotel Event Coordinator very well - none of them came to me with questions and everything ran smoothly. My husband and I are more than pleased with Julie and would recommend her to everyone. She's absolutely phenomenal and I know you will not regret working with her. Fabulous!

From our very first meeting Rev. Julie Price was a professional, a counselor and a friend. In addition to her attention to detail in personalizing our wedding ceremony she also offered marriage preparation classes. These optional classes were a terrific service and a great way to build the working and personal relationship between a couple and wedding officiant.

Rev. Price worked closely with us to craft our wedding ceremony in great detail. She officiated our ceremony with a combination of sincerity and wit. Our guests commented on our amazing officiant and the thoughtful and personal ceremony that was so special.

We feel very lucky to have found Rev. Price to be such a big part of our special day!

Julie officiated our wedding on 16 February... and it was an OUTSIDE wedding! She was so accommodating and such a good sport in helping us have our dream day. Julie met with us several times to customize a ceremony that truly reflected our bond and our personalities. Per our request, she kept a sense of humor in the ceremony and even my traditional grandmother loved it and laughed a lot. She found the balance between letting us choose our own words and also supplying ample material so we didn't have to do everything from scratch. Our wedding was the best day of our lives and we are so thankful to Julie for playing a role in our day!

Per our request, she kept a sense of humor in the ceremony and even my traditional grandmother loved it and laughed a lot. She found the balance between letting us choose our own words and also supplying ample material so we didn't have to do everything from scratch. Our wedding was the best day of our lives and we are so thankful to Julie for playing a role in our day! Read less

Rev. Julie was sweet and warm and professional. My then fiance (now husband) and I were living way out of state from VA during the planning and she was so good about setting up Skype appointments to go over everything. I felt comfortable with her right away. She was so helpful through the whole process. And delivered one of the most beautiful ceremonies my guests and I have ever seen/heard ;). Julie will listen and foster your individual ideas, and also is there to lend any advice or guidance she can when you need some extra direction. I am SO grateful and so pleased! Thank you so much!!

Rev. Julie Price was such a warm and friendly person to work with. She organized the ceremony into a workbook and then my new husband and I went through and added what we wanted and omitted anything we didn't. It was an approachable way for us to get familiar with what happens during a ceremony. Julie allowed us to be as creative as we wanted and helped us customize our ceremony so in the end it felt like us. We received a lot of compliments on our ceremony and we could not have done it without Julie. She also was a great help in calming my nerves before the ceremony began:)

From our first meeting with Rev. Julie, we felt like we had a connection with her. She was wonderful to work with and took the time to get to know us, so she could really make the ceremony personal. What she created was better than we could have asked for, really expressing "us". Many of our guests were raving about our wedding ceremony, saying it's the most beautiful one they've ever experienced... and we couldn't agree more! Our wedding ceremony was perfect and we're so thankful Rev. Julie was a part of our day!

The ceremony was something that was really important for me and my husband for our wedding, and we were challenged by the fact that we were living across country as we planned our wedding, and neither of us had current church ties in the DC area. We were worried we might end up with an impersonal, less meaninful, ceremony.

But then, we found Julie.

I can't tell you how many compliments we've gotten on our ceremony. Seriously, most of our guests have told us that it was the most beautiful ceremony they've seen, highly meaningful, and there wasn't a dry eye afterward. Julie was a joy to work with (over Skype!), and helped us strike a balance that satisfied our different religious backgrounds.

We were initially unsure whether to do the Marriage Prep series, but decided to do it in the end--and I can't recommend it enough! It was a great forum for Julie to get to know us as a couple, and that translated to a very personal and meaningful ceremony. We truly felt that we were married by someone who knew us as a couple. The marriage prep series is not counseling. We had a strong relationship already, but the marriage prep series was an excellent forum for discussing some really important relationship topics, and we feel it made our relationship even stronger.

After reading a bunch of reviews that said how great she was, we had to meet her. She was the PERFECT officiant for us. She was warm and friendly, super responsive, open to all of our requests, full of useful advice... (see, perfect?) We were dealing with a few big challenges that made us a bit a-traditional. We knew that the vast majority of our guests (well, and us!) had never been to a gay wedding -- so we wanted to make sure everyone felt comfortable. Also, we don't live anywhere near DC, so we needed to work remotely with Julie. Finally, my partner and I had been together for 10 years, so we wanted to acknowledge that. Julie did all of this!

Julie is so organized and calmingly sane. :-) She uses a really awesome workbook to help you plan your ceremony. On the day of, she spends time going around and talking to everyone involved so that things run smoothly (great for us, especially, as we didn't do a rehearsal!)

Seriously, everyone commented on how amazing she was. She's sincere, good humored, and she can project without a mic (hurray!)

From the first time we met Rev. Price my husband and I loved her. She is professional, experienced, pleasant and such a warm person. I really got more than just someone to officiate our wedding, she provided much needed advice and direction for our wedding.

She incorporated our stories, personalities into the ceremony, such as us being married already, our rings from high school. She was easy to reach and communicating with her was pleasant!

She was on site early for our ceremony. She did a practice run for us and everything before the ceremony. She was so calm and sweet, my wedding party did not get to do a rehersal and this was it. It went smoothly and I've gotten alot of comments on how much they loved the ceremony, how great Rev. Price was and how unique and heartfelt it was.

If you're searching for someone to officiate and make your day even more special go meet with Rev. Price!

We used Rev. Julie Price as our officiant for an outdoor ceremony at Meadowlark Botanical Gardens, and she was superb. Before the wedding, she met with us on multiple occasions, provided a handy guide as to various options for our ceremony, and had us answer some questions so that she could better get to know us and personalize the ceremony. We felt comfortable every step of the way with Julie. (We had met with a couple other potential officiants, both highly-rated on weddingwire, who simply didn't cut it -- one clearly provided too cookie-cutter a ceremony and the other was a little too corny.) Many of our guests raved about Julie's ceremony, and rightfully so. She was personable, friendly, and projected perfectly -- no need for a microphone, even though we were outdoors. We couldn't have been happier with our selection.

Julie was the first and only officiant we met with and after our first meeting, we knew that she'd be the perfect person to marry us! (Her awesome reviews on Wedding Wire helped, too!) My husband is Jewish and I am Catholic, so we wanted a non-denomenational ceremony, but incorporating elements from both religions as well. Julie gave us a ceremony workbook to use as a guide when writing the ceremony, as well as a book full of readings/prayers/passages to choose from to incorporate. Unfortunately, on our wedding day, it rained pretty hard right before the ceremony. We had wanted everything outside, and our wedding coordinator looked at the radar and told us we had about a 30-40 minute window where the skies looked clear if we wanted to keep the ceremony outside. Julie didn't blink an eye - she cut a few extras out of the ceremony and quickly married us. Although our ceremony was quicker than planned, it still flowed well and didn't seem as though she cut anything out at all. Her marriage address was beautiful & made me cry. At the end of the ceremony, we felt as if we had known Julie for years! She is the sweetest person and I very highly recommend her to anyone looking for an officiant. Thank you so much Julie!!

If you have not booked your officiant - BOOOK JULIE!! We cannot tell you how many compliments we've gotten on the ceremony - and truly how much WE loved it. My husband and I opted for a small intimate ceremony followed by a large party - and literally, those who attended the ceremony made those who did not jealous - so much so that we had to share the wedding ceremony video!! (And how many times have people slept thorough a wedding ceremony??) - not ours!!

Julie made the entire ceremony seem as though we had known her all of our lives and it was just so touching and meaningful. She truly spends a great deal of time getting the ceremony perfect for exactly what WE wanted. She has a fantastic ceremony "book" that my hubby and I got to look through, pick out our favorite parts, and amend anything we wanted. This was easily done at 2 face to face meetings and some emails. She really takes all the stress out of "planning" the wedding as she really is a professional who has it all ready for whomever wants to get married. There were SO many options - from us who are young and in our first marraige, to options for ceremonies with children, ceremonies with blended families, ceremonies with loved ones who had passed on -- you name it, she has a way to make it unique for YOU.

She also was SO easy at making changes at the last minute - as well as keeping special secret surprises held. My husbands family were flying in as a surprise and I had emailed Julie to let her know that we would be changing the ceremony to include them but that we'd need a "fake draft" for my husband to look at and OK - she was SO easy and accomodating. At our final meeting - while hubby was getting us all drinks, she and I worked out the details, and it was perfect. Not to mention the day of changes when his father surprised BOTH of us by showing up. Nothing threw Julie - she was changing anything and everything to make it perfect on the spot.

Truly, the ceremony was SO beautiful and it was all Julie! We have even talked about renewing our vows every 10 years and that we HAVE to have Julie as our officiant because she really made our wedding SO special. THANK YOU JULIE!!!

Julie was the only officiant we met with. After seeing all the amazing reviews and meeting her in person we knew she would be perfect for us. Neither my husband or I are religious and there was no pressure for us to have a religious ceremony or to incorporate religious themes. It was great being able to select the passages using the workbook provided by Julie; means you truly do have an individual ceremony. Julie was always very responsive when we had questions or going over drafts of our ceremony. She was the perfect person to make us husband and wife.

Rev. Julie Price is simply wonderful! She worked with us closely to help craft our perfect ceremony. We had some unique ideas for our ceremony (a unity volcano and a reading from my childhood diary to name a couple), but she completely embraced these ideas and supported our “creativity” with great suggestions and advice. We really enjoyed working with her and are so grateful that she made our ceremony as special as it was. We really lucked out finding her and couldn’t be happier!

We also attended Julie’s marriage prep seminar one Saturday. It was great! I don’t think my husband and I learned too many new things, but it was so nice to hear a professional 3rd party say the things we had kind of been doing and thinking on our own. It started a lot of really great conversations that we still bring up today. Plus, it was a lot of fun. I’d definitely recommend it to couples.

We had some unique ideas for our ceremony (a unity volcano and a reading from my childhood diary to name a couple), but she completely embraced these ideas and supported our “creativity” with great suggestions and advice. We really enjoyed working with her and are so grateful that she made our ceremony as special as it was. We really lucked out finding her and couldn’t be happier!

We also attended Julie’s marriage prep seminar one Saturday. It was great! I don’t think my husband and I learned too many new things, but it was so nice to hear a professional 3rd party say the things we had kind of been doing and thinking on our own. It started a lot of really great conversations that we still bring up today. Plus, it was a lot of fun. I’d definitely recommend it to couples. Read less

Reverend Julie Price is an amazing and talented celebrant. She officiated at our commitment and wedding ceremonies, and both were wonderful. She helped us create ceremonies that were meaningful and incorporated elements of both of our faiths, as well as more secular aspects. She was always organized and offered practical suggestions for music and reading lengths, order of events, and other feedback which we really appreciated. She clearly enjoys her work and calling. Even though it rained on our wedding day, her upbeat and joyful attitude helped us focus on what it was all about - love. We are so thankful to have had her as a part of these special moments in our lives. We encourage you to select her as your officiant!

Julie was absolutely amazing and we would recommend her to anyone. We received so many compliments on our ceremony, all thanks to Julie's ability to personalize the ceremony. In fact, we visited family 2 months after our wedding and still received compliments on the ceremony and how personal it was.

Julie uses a ceremony workbook, which breaks down each section of the ceremony (greeting, vows, giving away of the bride, etc). She provides multiple text options for each section which each couple selects. Julie is also very flexible and will let you change the text to better suit your style. Finally, she has a few sections that ensure the ceremony will be personal.

Julie ensures that you will have a personal and meaningful ceremony and is absolutely wonderful to work with. We loved Julie so much that we went to her marriage prep seminar - after we were married!

Julie was great to work with - I'd recommend her without reservation to anyone looking for a meaningful ceremony with an experienced officiant. We met up to chat about the ceremony and then were given some resources by Julie to look through and design our own wedding ceremony. We loved the resources Julie had and she was also very open to us including a few of our own touches. We really loved the final product and our guests repeatedly commented on how beautiful the ceremony was. Julie was very friendly and professional - I highly recommend her.

When my husband and I first started looking for an officiant for our August outdoor wedding, we knew we wanted to find someone who could really tailor a ceremony to our relationship and personalities. Julie did exactly that.

Our first "getting to know you" conversation with Julie unfortunately had to be over the phone since we live in Chicago and would get married in Virginia - but that didn't stop us from really getting a great vibe from Julie. She really wants the bride and groom to have exactly the ceremony they want, and is extremely personable and easy to work with. Julie's workbook has beautiful selections, and she's great at mixing and matching to make it your own. Julie is also very flexible - we had to change our reading a week before the wedding (due to loss of a family member) and she was so helpful in finding a new one and being incredibly supportive.

We only spent a few actual days with Julie in person, but she was wonderful and made our ceremony so special. It felt like we had known her forever. And the fact that she gives you a copy of your ceremony afterward to have forever is a really lovely touch. I would highly recommend Julie to anyone looking for a unique and special wedding.

We are so pleased that Juli Wilson-Black officiated our ceremony! When we met with Juli for the first time, we knew that we wanted her to be our officiant. We knew that we wanted our ceremony to be traditional and include religion - but also wanted it to be special and specific to us. We got just that with Juli!

Juli provided a ceremony workbook that allowed us to choose what we wanted included in our ceremony and for each aspect, we were given several choices on the wording, etc. It allowed us to pick everything we wanted in our ceremony. We were also asked to complete individual questionnaires about each other and our relationship. Juli used this to write a beautiful marriage address. Her marriage address depicted us and our relationship perfectly - even our guests were chuckling at the reality of everything Juli said because it fit us so well.

Our wedding ceremony suited us perfectly and was so custom to us as individuals and as a couple. We received so many compliments on how personalized the ceremony was - and we couldn't agree more! We'd recommend Juli to anyone - she was truly amazing and made our wedding ceremony so very special!

We were looking for an officiant who would be willing to perform a non-religious ceremony, and Julie was simply the best! She offered a variety of readings for each section of the wedding and offered valuable advice when we weren't sure what would work best. Julie's natural grace and style of speaking helped make everyone feel welcome and comfortable. She graciously made the trip to our rehearsal and really helped everyone feel prepared for the next day's event. Julie did a superb job during the ceremony and we can't thank her enough.

Julie officiated an absolutely wonderful ceremony for us. We were both blown away by how well everything went. She exceeded our expectations by far. We are still hearing everyone rave about ours being one of the best, if not the best, ceremonies many of our guests had ever been to.

As a same-sex couple, we did what seemed to be endless research to find an officiant who would offer their services to us, and offer those services with a smile. We realized the night we met her that we had made a good choice for an officiant. We realized right after the ceremony that we had actually made the best choice in hiring her. We will forever be grateful for her true professionalism and service.

To all of those looking for someone to perform a same sex ceremony, look no further. You will not be disappointed in hiring Julie.

We hired Reverend Julie to officiate our October 2009 wedding. We absolutely loved Julie from our very first meeting! She was very professional and responsive from the beginning. We liked that we had lots of freedom to organize our ceremony exactly the way we wanted so that it would be unique to me and my fiance. I thought Julie's ceremony workbook was extremely helpful, as it gave us examples and ideas for the ceremony, but didn't limit the creativity for things that we wanted to include. She encourages you to add/change things to make your wedding as unique as possible. I thought she did an excellent job during the ceremony. She was dynamic, clear, and confident and she made us feel comfortable. Our guests really enjoyed Julie and the ceremony! We received lots of very positive feedback. Julie was warm, caring, personable and very down to earth. We felt like she went out of her way to make sure our day was special. We consider Julie to be a friend of the family now! I would highly recommend Julie to family and friends looking for an officiant!

We had a few unique requests and she really helped us work our way through them, allowing us to make decisions we were happy with.

Despite some noise from jets taking off from Reagan Nat'l Airport, she worked around it and did a great job making sure all the guests heard her. Highly recommended!

We used Julie for our offiant needs, and boy were we glad!!! We wanted someone who was classy and modern but also someone who knew what they were doing.

Julie was fabulous, she made the ceremony creation process so easy...I had no idea what to expect or how much work I would have to do. Julie provided us with a ceremony workbook, which I've saved, that included different verbiage styles for each section of the ceremony. All we had to do was read the different styles and pick one! All of the different selections were so good that picking one seemed to be the hardest part of the whole process! It really was so easy and by the time we got to the ceremony portion of wedding planning I was extremely grateful to have found someone who matched our personal style and knew what she was doing. It was a load off and an easy check mark on the list. We planned our ceremony in an a day...aside from us writing our own vows which took me a little bit :)

My favorite part of our wedding was the ceremony, for many reasons but one was b/c of Julie. She wasn't preachy at all. She contributed to an intimate and romantic setting. We received so many compliments on our ceremony. The guests could really feel the love!

We highly recommend using Julie for your ceremony needs, you won't be disappointed.

Julie was such an amazing officiant! She meets with you ahead of time to figure out exactly what you want your ceremony to be like, and has a ceremony workbook that is totally customizable. We wanted a ceremony that was spiritual but not necessarily religious and were very happy with what we wound up with. We also added in a family blessing of the rings that she had not done before and she was very accommodating with that as well. On the day of the wedding she was calm and professional and her words and voice carry a lot of power and emotion. We had several people come up to us afterward and ask if we knew her personally, because the service was so individualized. One friend liked Julie so much that she is trying to see if she can get her to travel to Mexico for her destination wedding!!!

She spent time with us when needed to help prepare and also gave us a workbook which made it easy for us to select just the right text and feel for our ceremony. She easily adapted to any changes we wanted and helped us create the perfect personal ceremony for our wedding.

On the day of the wedding, Reverend Price arrived early to check in on us and provide support. We really felt comfortable having her officiate and felt that we had a friend guiding us through such a big event. She even stayed for a while after the ceremony to talk with our guests.

Rev. Julie Price was an incredibly professional, warm, and personable officiant. She was very organized, and wanted to get to know us as a couple even during our initial meeting. I appreciated how flexible she was in the ceremony content we wanted, and she was able to move her schedule around to suit a better meeting location as we were car-less. Even though we didn't need Julie to run through the rehearsal, she gave us enough direction during our final meeting that we felt very comfortable running the rehearsal without her being there. The ceremony was beautiful and ran so smoothly. We also attended a marriage seminar she facilitated, and not only was it a great use of our time, we also got to know Julie better. It helped us have more of a connection, rather than it being a complete stranger performing the ceremony (which was my fear). Working with her was a pleasure.

We also received a number of compliments from our family and friends about Rev. Price and her ability to preside over our ceremony. Thank you Julie for doing such a wonderful job with our wedding!

We loved working with Julie to design a ceremony that was perfect for us and our beliefs. She is laid-back and easy to work with. We got more compliments on our officiant than any other part of our wedding! Our guests complimented her friendly delivery style and warmth. Highly recommended!

Rev. Julie Price did an absolutely wonderful job as our officiant for our wedding ceremony. During the planning process, she was very well-organized, efficient, and responsive. Planning our ceremony was very easy due to Rev. Price's ceremony workbook. While you can add anything you want to the ceremony, it was nice to have options laid out for us.

Unfortunately and unexpectedly, a wedding took place next door to ours at the same time (we were outside). Rev. Price did a great job of keeping everyone's focus on OUR ceremony and was really a calming presence when I was freaking out. Her voice carried really well and she was amazing at directing us discreetly during the ceremony (although we were well-prepared since she went through everything with us during our final meeting).

So many of my relatives have commented on Rev. Price and wanted to know how I found her. I would definitely not hesitate a second to recommend her to a friend or anyone. A lot of things went wrong on my wedding day and I was disappointed with a bunch of my vendors, but Rev. Price was a real bright spot and I am so happy that she was our officiant.

Rev. Julie Price did an amazing job of officiating our wedding. She was extremely friendly and personable, and was very responsive in her correspondence with us, which was mostly done over email and the phone. Since my husband and I live in California and were planning a wedding in Virginia, we could not have a face-to-face meeting with Rev. Price until the week before the wedding, and yet she was very flexible and was able to cover everything via email and at the meeting. She tailored our ceremony and marriage address to fit our beliefs, and conducted it beautifully and smoothly the day or our wedding. Although she couldn't make it to our rehearsal (she is so popular that she was booked the evening of our ceremony rehearsal), she provided us with a rehearsal worksheet with detailed specifics that we and our wedding coordinators were able to follow very well. Our parents and guests were moved by her address, and we kept getting comments on how beautiful our ceremony was and what a great job our officiant did. Rev. Julie Price was very professional and truly a dream to work with; we would recommend her to anyone.

Julie Price officiated our wedding last month, and she was a true joy to work with. My husband and I were looking for a meaningful wedding, but one that was not religious--and she more than met our needs! She is a warm, kind individual that will remind you that a wedding, even with all the craziness of planning, is still about marriage. She was very flexible about designing a ceremony that allowed us to express our love for each other in a way that was comfortable for us. Our guests -- some religious, some not -- all loved the ceremony and kept asking how we knew Rev. Price, which I think is a testament to the excellent job that she does. She was a perfect choice!

Julie Price was an absolute delight to work with as our wedding celebrant. Based on her previous reviews on weddingwire.com, we set up an initial meeting with her. She was very patient and honest in answering all our questions during the first meeting; my husband and I are from different faiths and we wanted a more spiritual than religious ceremony. Julie made us feel comfortable and at ease right away about our choice, and she genuinely expressed a desire to get to know us as a couple, which was particularly important to us. We had a small, family wedding of just over 50 guests, and we wanted our ceremony to be an intimate and personal experience for us and our guests. Julie was so flexible with our every desire for the ceremony; I was free to edit/delete/add specifics of the ceremony until we got it just right. The end result was a ceremony that we were really proud of and couldn't wait to share with our loved ones. The big day arrived, and the ceremony was perfection! We received many compliments from our guests about how wonderful Julie's words and delivery were and how the ceremony seemed tailor-made for my husband and me - it was truly our dream come true! Julie was such a great choice for us, and we wholeheartedly recommend her officiating services to anyone looking for a celebrant who will not disappoint!

Rev. Price, with Creative Ceremony, was an absolute joy as an officiant! My husband and I are not originally from the area, and we were worried about finding a minister to perform our wedding ceremony that we would feel comfortable with.

Rev. Price set us competely at ease. She was flexible and enthusiastic and has a wonderfully warm personality. Our ceremony was beautiful and we received many compliments from our guests.

I can't recommend Creative Ceremony highly enough!

Patti and I were extremely pleased with Julie's (our) ceremony, we can't stop talking about it and neither can our guests. We felt an instant bond with Julie during our very first meeting. No less than five of our guests mentioned that they felt compelled to renew their wedding vows after attending our wedding. Our guests laughed & cried, we too laughed and cried during our very special, very unique and warm ceremony. Julie was professional, warm & very connected to us throughout the entire planning process and ceremony. We would recommend her to anyone looking to be married, counseled or renewing their vows..... Thanks Julie!!!

I can't think of enough good things to say about Rev. Julie Price. I happened upon her while searching through theknot.com, and it was the best find I have ever had through the internet! She is warm and friendly; she responds quickly to calls and e-mails; she is open-minded and genuinely cares about crafting a unique and loving ceremony. We had several in-person meetings with her, and we never felt rushed or uncomfortable. In fact, she bought us a bottle of wine at our last meeting when we told her how stressed we were!

Julie is obviously experienced as a wedding officiant, and she made many helpful suggestions for us as we were putting the ceremony together. On the actual day, Rev. Price came into both our dressing rooms to check on us, sign the marriage license, and get the paperwork done right away. She greeted me with a big hug and smile, which was very comforting! I had no stress, wondering if she would remember to send everything off; most likely, she did it on her way home from our ceremony. Her voice projected strong and clearly through the room. And, no joke, but my now-husband and I had several people approach us afterwards and ask us about her. They were amazed that we weren't old friends! Our wedding guests just loved her -- and we did too!


Rev. Price comes with our highest recommendation. At this point, we feel she is Northern Virginia's best kept secret, in terms of wedding officiants. Her care with us exceeded all expectations we had, and we are delighted that she was part of our wedding day.

Julie was a dream to work with. Upon meeting with her for the first time, we felt very comfortable with her, she took the time to get to know us and personalize a ceremony just for us. She is extremely professional, but also a very warm and sincere person, and our guests kept telling us how absolutely beautiful our ceremony was. We wanted a very specific ceremony, and Julie worked with us to get it exactly the way we wanted. She delivered the ceremony beautifully, even without a microphone, and there wasn't a dry eye in the house. I would absolutely reccommend her to anyone looking for an officant who will work with you to step outside of the traditional wedding ceremony lines!!
