Julie Laudicina, Celebrant!

Your ceremony sets the tone for your wedding celebration. When you select Julie as your officiant, you can be assured of elegance, careful attention to your wishes, and a calm presence to make your ceremony just what you want it to be.

Julie is certified as a civil wedding celebrant by Celebrant Foundation and Institute. She is licensed to perform legal weddings in New York City, New York State, and New Jersey. She also does civil union ceremonies in NJ.

Whether a wedding ceremony is formal or informal, spiritual or secular, traditional or non-traditional, Julie creates ceremonies that reflect the beliefs, traditions, and wishes of the bride and groom. She encourages couples to incorporate time-honored traditions or unique rituals in their wedding. Her warm personality and engaging spirit make the ceremony one of the more stress-free aspects of your wedding day.

Most of her couples are very clear that they want a memorable ceremony that is totally personalized and sets the tone for their once-in-a-lifetime day. Julie's goal is that the couple is able to savor this special moment between them because of her pre-wedding day preparation and communication.

Since 2005 she has conducted over 250 weddings at reception halls, restaurants, parks, museums, and private homes. She has done weddings in such beautiful venues as The Loft and Garden at Rockefeller Center, the Mandarin Oriental Hotel, The Lighthouse at Chelsea Pier, Metrazur at Grand Central Terminal, Tribeca Rooftop, Manhattan Penthouse, NYC public library at 42nd St., Dwight Chapel at Yale University,and the Hilton Garden Inn on Staten Island. Several international couples have been married by Julie in Central Park weddings.

Prior to becoming a celebrant, Julie was Associate Dean of arts and sciences at Pace University in Manhattan; a curriculum manager at Bell Laboratories, AT&T and Lucent Technologies in NJ; and Associate Director of the Noble Maritime Collection, an art museum in Staten Island, NY. Her varied life experiences give her rich material to draw from when creating original ceremonies.

She has a liberal arts degree in English and art from Augsburg College, Minneapolis, MN, and a masters degree in organizational behavior from NYU's Polytechnic University, Brooklyn, NY.

Julie is the 2012 Program Committee Chr. for the 21 Century Business Woman Conference sponsored by the West Brighton Local Development Council, and she is a regular member of the Staten Island Netpreneurs, a group that of small business owners who do business on the internet.


Julie is affiliated with the Universal Brotherhood Movement, Inc., and she is their current ordaining minister for each new class of celebrants from Celebrant Foundation and Institute in Montclair, NJ. She is a recurring lecturer in Wagner College's extension certification program for wedding planners. She is a participating "Wish Granter" for the NJ/NY chapter of Wish Upon a Wedding.

I look forward to hearing from you! Please contact me at 917-282-2455 and julie@julielaudicina.com Read less

INFO FOR OFFICIANT

What officiant services do you provide?
Civil Union, Interfaith Ceremony, Non-religious Ceremony
Can you accommodate the hearing impaired?
No
Are you willing to perform a ceremony at a non-religious site?
Yes, in fact, most of the places where I officiate are not religious sites.
What is your attire for the ceremony?
Usually a black outfit - elegant, dressy if appropriate, no liturgical garb
Are you flexible in the wording used throughout the ceremony, including the vows?
What I offer is broad flexibility in the wording that is used through the ceremony. I encourage the bride and groom to write their own vows. If they find that challenging, I offer a wide range of suggestions. My goal is that the wording matches what they want to say at that special moment.
Do you allow the couple to write their own vows, if desired?
See above...definitely "Yes"!
Do you have a list of readings pre-selected, from which the couple must choose?
There are no "musts" in creating personalized wedding ceremonies. I do offer suggestions and options...but the ultimate choice goes to the bride and groom.
How long are your ceremonies?
Ceremonies I create vary in length...usually 20-25 minutes
Do you require that premarital counseling be done?
No. I am not trained or licensed to do that work. I would encourage it if the couple thinks it might be helpful for them.
Are you willing to perform pre-ceremony rehearsals?
Yes. I enjoy working with couples and their wedding party to make everyone comfortable with the ceremony staging. However, it the couple doesn't want to incur the expense of a rehearsal, I will work with them to have their ceremony run smoothly.
Do you supply a sound system?
No

From the moment we met Julie, we knew she was the officiant for us. Warm, friendly, and always professional, she made the process of planning our ceremony fun! Before we met Julie, we had no idea how our scraps of ideas could come together in a way that was meaningful, especially since we wanted a secular ceremony. Julie helped us create something that was personal, loving, and joyous - exactly what we wanted. Everyone who came to our wedding told us it was the best wedding ceremony they'd ever attended… including their own! :) We cannot recommend Julie highly enough.

Julie is amazing! Not only is she a dear family friend, but she also created the most beautiful/perfect ceremony. The best compliement I heard all day was that our ceremony felt like "us", and we could not have accomplished that without Julie's absolute expertise in the area. She took our love story and wove it into a romantic and perfect ceremony. It was so very special to have her marry us. She is the easiest and sweetest person to work with, and truly listened to what we were looking for. We were beyond thrilled that she was able to be our officiant- it made the day even more special! Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts!

Julie was fantastic. She was easy to work with, listened to our thoughts/wishes, and delivered us simply the most perfect ceremony we could have wished for. We were thrilled and many of our guests commented on how great the service was too.
We already recommended Julie to some friends, even before we had got married, and she officiated their ceremony a week later... They were also really pleased (phew!)

Great service all round. She really did help make it a special day - She took the time to get to know us a little, by requesting some information before hand. With this, she prepared some word for the day, and these worked perfectly. They were a true reflection of our personalities. She was also very good at putting us at ease as the nerves started to kick in.

Julie was exactly what we hoped for in our Officiant. After interviewing about 6 different people, we walked away form our initial meeting and knew she was the one. She was able to take our story and make it come alive. She didn't take our changes personally and introduced us to some great ideas and options for our ceremony. She was on time, communicated and brought a great sense of calm to the whole day.

I am so glad that I found Julie to officiate for our wedding. She was the officiant of my best friends wedding in which i was a bridesmaid and always knew I wanted her to marry us after seeing my friends beautiful ceremony. Julie is professional, warm and dedicated. She worked with me on a very tight schedule while I was busy with planning a million other things for the wedding and not always getting back to her as fast as I should have, she was very patient and kind; for which I am thankful for. I will continue to recommend Julie to anyone who is getting married! Thank you Julie!
