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.

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.

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

Julie was really fantastic. We had some major changes in our wedding and had to make some serious updates in the final 10 week countdown to our wedding. Traveling from Florida, Julie helped us understand and plan our new service in Central Park even though we'd never seen the actual space. She was EXTREMELY quick to respond and very professional throughout the planning process. She encouraged us to edit and make changes to the ceremony until we were absolutely satisfied. The ceremony was beautiful, she wore a stunning red coat and her husband was there to assist as well.

Love her!

Julie was heartwarming! She was truly professional in helping us to plan and realize this once in a lifetime event. Her husband Joe came along and was a great guest to our ceremony. Our wedding took place in a very personal environment with only family and the closest friends and Julie found her way to fit right in! Besides a good planning she had a great sense to adjust to the situation and feeling during the ceremony. No dry eyes that day! My wife and I truly recommend her services!

Julie was the officiant for our recent Central Park, New York City wedding on August 29th. We first started discussing our wedding ceremony with Julie about a year in advance (because we live in the UK but coming to New York for our wedding). From the first meeting with Julie we knew we had made the right decision in seeking her services, she made us feel at ease from the outset and all of our wishes were taken onboard and guidance & suggestions for our ceremony couldn't have been more spot on. On the wedding day itself Julie was fantastic, made our guests feel not only in attendance but part of the wedding ceremony and many of them commented afterwards that it was the most perfect wedding ever - with the content exactly matching our relationship! We can't thank Julie enough for helping to make our special day so perfect :)
We would without hesitation recommend Julie to anyone looking for her services.

Julie did such a wonderful job as our officiant. I received numerous compliments on our ceremony, several saying that it was the best ceremony they have ever been to. The thing everyone seemed to love is how she incorporated our "love story" into the ceremony, beginning with how we met and how that led into our love for each other and eventually to being married.

In searching for the right officiant for our small wedding in New York City in July 2013, I spoke with several of the “top” officiants according to reviews on theknot and weddingwire. Because of schedules, Julie was the last call that we had set up. After meeting with another officiant two days before I was scheduled to speak with Julie, I felt that I had found the right person. She was absolutely lovely, we had a great conversation and I left our meeting convinced and excited that I would be booking her. I knew I had one more call set up and didn’t feel right about cancelling so, decided to still talk to Julie.

My fiancé didn’t even sit in on the call and in the back of my mind, I felt that it would be pretty quick. However, as we started talking, I was surprised. The conversation was different than any I had with the other officiants. All other conversations were very pleasant and they all had great ideas for our situation but Julie was standing out way beyond everyone including (gasp) the person I just decided I wanted very much to be our officiant. I never change my mind once I am ‘set’ on something so, I couldn’t believe what was happening. I left the call surprised and after explaining the details of how it went to my fiancé he suggested that she was clearly the right choice.

The next couple of months went perfectly thanks to Julie. Her writing is impeccable and the script for our ceremony was beyond expectations. We decided to create a second marriage certificate that our children could also sign as a memento and to let them feel more involved. I had a lot of ideas for it so I said that I would create it. Of course when I showed up at the church, I had completely forgotten about it and Julie said, “that’s okay, I created one just in case”. Of course, it was perfect just like every other part of what she brought to our wedding. I can’t recommend her enough.

I was absolutely delighted with Julie as my wedding officiant. She managed to craft a beautiful, personalized ceremony script on a short one-month timeline. She is not only warm and pleasant to work with, but also very professional. She sent us a contract immediately after our initial conversation which detailed the terms of her services, laid out expectations and timelines clearly, and responded very quickly to emails. Really top-notch!

Julie Laudicina amazed me and my new husband in many ways. She personalized our ceremony in such a way that was 100% "us" and our words for one another. She listened to my thoughts and desires for our ceremony. I have a blended family and she made sure to include all the children in the ceremony which was a #1 priority for us. After the ceremony she gave us a copy of the ceremony, which I'm thrilled about and I still read on a daily basis. I would recommend Julie to anyone that is searching for that "perfect" officiant!

Julie conducted our wedding ceremony on 9/9/12 at the Cop Cot Central park. As we were visiting NY from N Ireland in order to get married, good communication was a key factor when we were choosing an officiant. From day one, Julie was excellent at answering any queries we had. Everything ran really smoothly and she had a schedule planned to allow us to respond to a questionnaire (allowing her to write our ceremony). Julie has conducted loads of ceremonies and we definitely got the impression that she knew what she was doing.

On the day of the wedding, Julie looked smart, was extremely pleasant and kind to everyone and conducted our ceremony without a hitch. Our guests were in tears, She really put emotion into every part and it was so much more personal than 'I take thee to be my lawful husband' which in my opinion is outdated!!

If you need an officiant for your ceremony - be it a small intimate gathering like ours, or a big wedding, I would say don’t hesitate to book Julie - She was fantastic!!

Julie was great. This was a second marriage for my fiance and I, and we truly could not have been happier with the way things turned out. I did not have to worry about anything. She prepared our whole ceremony based on our answers to her questionnaire. We would definitely recommend Julie as a wedding officiant, and as a very nice person.

Julie Laudicina was a pleasure to work with. We were originally going to head to City Hall for a quick wedding on a Monday in August, but after thinking about it I decided I wanted something more personal. I found Julie by googling wedding officiants, and I could not have been happier. Julie was nice, knowledgeable and very professional. She sent us a questionnaire by email and asked us to complete it and return it to her. Within a few days she had prepared our wedding ceremony and sent it to us for review. We made changes/suggestions, which she then incorporated into the ceremony. It was honestly that easy. I would highly recommend Julie to anyone looking for a wedding officiant.

We instantly warmed to Julie after receiving our first correspondence from her. She has such a friendly and caring nature which really helped put us at ease. During our emails, Julie ensured that we fully understood all aspects of our ceremony as well as ensure that it was everything that we wanted it to be. Her professionalism and friendliness exceeded all expectations that we had. On the day, Julie created a calm and relaxed environment which is just what we wanted. Our ceremony was everything that we wanted it to be and so much more. We're so blessed to have had Julie perform our ceremony and can't thank her enough for helping to make our day so special.

My partner (now my husband :) ) flew out to New York from Belfast to be married on the 28th of May 2012 and are 1 million percent happy with our decision to have Julie as our wedding officiant. She is wonderful. Her corrrespondence was always warm and helpfuil and always made you feel very reassured (if that makes sense). The ceremony that Julie performed was 'Our Story' and even now when I read it i get very teary. It was beautiful and as our parents were with us she included them in the ceremony and made it very special. It was a pleasure meeting Julie and I only wish that we could have spent more time with her as she is very friend and someone that i would have loved to have shared a Long Island Ice Tea with.. but maybe next time my husband and I are in New York. Thank you so much Julie xx

My husband and I just got married May 19 2012 and we are so happy we choose Julie for our wedding. She is very professional and pays close attention to detail. She is simply amazing. She has such personality and makes the ceremony intimate. She took what we gave her and made a love story out of it. She asks questions and gets a feel for the couple and what exactly it is they are looking for. She is well spoken and very kind. She makes the ceremony elegant. She helps out with every little detail and is very happy to do it. She has many ideas to make "your" day a unique one. The wording was beautiful and everything turned out perfect! She is warm and makes you feel comfortable. People were thrilled with our ceremony. We loved it!
Thank you Julie
I would highly recommend her.

As a couple from the UK getting married in the USA, we were understandably a little nervous about the in's and out's of planning a wedding from overseas. Julie really set out minds at rest.

Firstly she took the time to meet us (with no obligation) whilst we were in New York on holiday a year before the wedding. We knew straight away that she would be the perfect person to perform our ceremony. She (and her husband, Joe) were warm and friendly but also professional, and offered us plenty of information and ideas.

From then on we emailed back and forth, and she never took more than just a few hours to respond to any queries we had. She made everything very easy for us.

Julie sent us each a questionnaire to fill out, which she then used to create our personalised wedding ceremony. She was more than happy for us to make as many amendments as we wanted (not that we had many!).

On the day, the ceremony went perfectly. Julie had everyone laughing as well as crying!

We really can't recommend Julie highly ernough! She is an absolute star.

Our fantastic photographer, Brian Friedman, recommended Julie and we were thrilled with the beautiful ceremony she wrote for us! She was extremely professional and helpful and incorporated our personal story, feelings and thoughts expertly into the ceremony. On the day Julie was calm and conducted the whole thing, more or less from memory ... which was very impressive and made it all the more special, as it was delivered with warmth and was very heart felt, not just reading off a piece of paper and going through the motions which we very much appreciated and would recommended Julie 100%!

Julie performed a same sex marriage for me and my partner the day before Easter. I found her through the Celebrant Institute www.celebrantinstitute.org. We live in the UK and it was a 'random' selection but absolutely the perfect match for us. We were first driven by location as the wedding was on Staten Island, my home town where Julie lives but she fit many other criteria. Importantly she was not only 'comfortable' marrying two women but is personally vocal about the right to same sex marriage and incorporated some very wise words about this in our ceremony and honoured the lesbian herstory of the location of the event, The Alice Austen House Museum aliceausten.org. Everything was arranged via email and one long phone call. We had less than 4 months to plan with Julie but her expert preparation, scripting and response to our ideas made the whole process go extremely smoothly. The ceremony had several elements in it including readings and prayers recited by friends and the inclusion of our two sons. It all flowed so well on the page and on the day it was just perfect. We didn't even have a rehearsal! Even though it was the first time we were meeting Julie in person we felt a special connection to her. She has great depth and presence as an officiator and many of our guests were very moved by the service.

It has been just over a month since I was married on March 31st, 2012 and looking back at the entire picture, the most meaningful part of the entire event was standing up at the alter, looking out at all of our loved ones. Julie Laudicina made the entire ceremony feel so special. We are a mixed marriage, my husband is Christian and I am Jewish, so we wanted an officiant to marry us so we could combine our two faiths in a non-denomination ceremony that would touch on both of our backgrounds. Julie was able to help us blend these two faiths in such a wonderful way, so they became part of the ceremony in a unifying way - bringing us together, rather than pointing out our differences. Eric and I live in London but got married in New York City, which could have been potentially difficult to work with Julie in coordinating our ceremony. Julie has a wonderful way of working with her clients, and the process was incredibly easy, and her flexibility left us with no stress before our wedding day. People still comment on how personal our ceremony was, and by the end we felt that Julie tailored a ceremony that was exactly what we wanted - it incorporated the importance of our families, my husband's and my love for one another, and our vows expressed our shared values and ideas of marriage. She made us feel comfortable standing up there in front of almost 200 people, providing a sense of calm and joy, which Julie naturally radiates. The whole event seemed effortless and incredibly special, thanks to Julie's art with words and presence. Thank you, Julie for helping to facilitate the best day of our lives.
Cheers from London,
Tara and Eric

My husband and I were blessed to work with Julie when she volunteered her services as part of the Nicotra's Ballroom 10th Anniversary "I Do All Over Again" contest. We had an initial meeting with Julie, after which she sent us thorough questionnaires and used them to design a personal ceremony for us. She was so patient and responsive during the entire process, responding quickly to our edits and tailoring the ceremony to our preferences. The result was a unique and beautiful ceremony that reflected us as a couple. Many of our guests commented on how sweet the ceremony was and what an eloquent speaker Julie is. My sister-in-law echoed this sentiment, saying she was so engaged in the ceremony that she found herself hanging on Julie's every word. I was so thrilled it was so memorable for us as well as our guests. I would highly recommend Julie Laudicina to anyone looking for a ceremony officiant.

We couldn't have asked for a more perfect officiant. Julie really took the time to create a very personal ceremony for us - one that had the perfect balance of seriousness and lighthearted moments. It also felt substantial even though it wasn't a religious ceremony. -Although she will work with you to make whatever it is you are looking for. She was very easy-going about comments/changes, and didn't limit the number of rounds we could go on the script.

Day of, her delivery was perfect. She has a very calming demeanor and was cool as a cucumber. She has a nice pace and great presence. We received so many compliments on our ceremony after. Many of our friends said that it gave them ideas for how they'd like to have theirs someday. I would highly recommend Julie to anyone. She's a real professional and extremely pleasant to work with.

Sweet, thoughtful, professional . . . just a few of the words that pop into my head when I think about Julie. She was the only officiant we met and immediately I had a good gut feeling about her and we were so right. She helped us created a truly personalized and unique wedding ceremony to capture our Jewish and Persian backgrounds. We had SO many compliments on her eloquent speaking, the warmth the ceremony provided, and the overall flow of the it all. Without a doubt, we would recommend her to anyone.

Her caring ways are shown by her responsiveness and ability to incorporate a ceremony that is simply what you want it to be and more. We loved every bit of it, and our so grateful to Julie. Thank you, a million times over.

From the first meeting with Julie we knew she would be the officiant we were looking for. She told us we would see our draft ceremony from first draft to last and be able add/revise/delete whatever we wanted. Her couples questionnaire really helps her learn about the both of you and create the perfect ceremony. Since this is a 2nd marraige, we wanted to include our daughters. Julie gave us ideas on how to include them. Our ceremony was perfect, exactly as we imagined, mix of humor and love. Everyone told us that it was the best ceremony they had ever attended. Julie was perfect. I highly recommend her to anyone getting married.

Julie is a lovely lady who is very professional.

I knew at that moment we would receive a wonderful service. She also recommended a fantastic photographer (Brian Freedman) who took the most amazing photos.

Julie conducted our intimate ceremony with a love for sharing these special moments in life, she bought the words of our ceremony to life and was an essential component of the best day ever!. Thank you Julie!

When Matt and I met with Julie a few months before our wedding, we felt so comfortable with her and she went over how the officiating profess works. About 3 months prior to our wedding, Julie sent both of us questionarie that we both filled out about our love story and what we want for our marriage. A month after finishing the questions, Julie sent us a draft of what she would read at the wedding. I cried like a baby. She wrote an amazing wedding script and with a few changes, it was perfect. Julie also helped us put together our wedding program. On the wedding day, Julie met us an hour before the ceremony to give a run down of the ceremony. Once the ceremony started, to finally hear Julie read the ceremony script was amazing. It felt as if Julie really knew Matt and I and our guest were very impressed how she make the whole ceremony personal to us. Julie incorporated parts into our vows that were special to us and was open to hear our suggestions and ideas. Another part of the ceremony people enjoyed was when she included all our guest to answer questions about letting Matt and I into their lives and reminding them of our wedding day. Julie was professional, kept to a timeline/schedule, warm, kind and amazing. Matthew and I highly recommend Julie to anyone who needs an officiant for their wedding. After speaking or meeting once with Julie, she will blow you away with just how amazing and professional is she. Thanks again for being our officiant and if you are looking for an amazing officiant, Julie Laudicina is the best officiant anyone can ask for.

Julie was brilliant. She was so helpful from start to finish. The ceremony which was extremely personal was very well written by Julie, and brought tears to our eyes. We eloped from the UK and so Julie invited friends and family to send greetings which was a really lovely touch. She then sent them a photograph after the ceremony which everybody really apprecaited. I can't praise Julie enough she is great! Highly recommended.

Julie made sure she included us every step of the way, showed us rough drafts of the service and encouraged us to add to it, make corrections.
We gave her just over a week to put together our wedding and she did a fantastic job and more.
My husband & I are buddhist and she incorporated our beliefs into our ceromony.
Since our wedding was so small, she made a wonderful suggestion to tie our wedding rings together and pass them around to our guests, so that they could be included.
We enjoyed her husband Joe as well; you get 2 for the price of 1!

Julie was very open to ideas and offering so unique ideas for a wedding ceremony. Her readings and presentation were off the charts outstanding. Even boasted they had never seen such a nice ceremony and she even had the men crying and saying it was so touching to share in those moments. She is caring and it just pours out in all her work.

We live in the UK and had arranged to meet some New York wedding officiants, Julie being one of them. We met with Julie and her husband Joe. It was a very easy decision to use Julie as our wedding officiant because from the moment we met, Julie put us both completely at ease and we knew that we would be in safe hands! This proved true both on the run up to our wedding and on the day itself.

We were able to create a very personal ceremony and set of vows – Julie’s suggestions and advice combined with our personal input made for the unique ceremony we wanted. Our guests only had positive comments to make and they also said that the words we used spoke volumes about how we felt about each other. Many said it was the nicest ceremony that they had attended.

Julie was very relaxed - this was very reassuring and helped us lose (most!) of our nerves during the ceremony and her directions helped to guide us through the afternoon.

We cannot thank Julie enough for how easy she made every aspect of our ceremony and would recommend, without hesitation, that anyone else use her as their officiant.

Julie was our officiant who married us. Julie is a breath of fresh air. She is really lovely & professional. We got so many compliments from our guests during our ceremony. Julie made our wedding day special. She took our love story & made our ceremony vows based on our love which is unique compared to the original old fashioned church vows. We based our marriage on the reasons why we really love each other & why we want to spend the rest of our lives together. The exact words people told us was that our wedding ceremony was beautiful & who was that lady that married you? She was great. Julie did a fabulous job & I highly recommend anyone to use her for their wedding.

Julie really took the time to get to know us as a couple - even though we do not live in the NYC area. Based on the information that she requested of us through email and one face to face meeting before our wedding day, she was able to craft a love story that was just perfect!! Our guests raved about how lovely the ceremony was --- people thought that she had known us for years!! I would recommend Julie to anyone looking for an officiant - she does a wonderful job of listening and providing you with the service that you truly want.

There was 3500 miles between us and Julie,the Celebrant so everything had to be done via email before we flew out to America.
I found her website at the very beginning of Jan 2009 and thus started a series of conversations. Everything question was promptly dealt wuth and nothing left to chance
Julie's attention to detail and real knack of taking in everything we had spoken about ensured that our Vow renewal was absolutely perfect in every possible way.

I would totally trust your special day with Julie as she will not let you down.

My fiance and I met with Julie and her husband and liked them immediately. Julie has a way of making you feel very comfortable, as if you have known her for ages.

Julie really took the time to get to know us and wrote an amazing ceremony catered to us, telling our love story. She took care of every detail, queing us throughout the ceremony, making us feel at ease and even dressing in coordinating colors w/my bridal party. Julie's services well exceeded my expectations.

Julie did such an amazing job at our wedding ceremony this past October. She is very easygoing and a pleasure to work with. If you want to add a lot of personality into your ceremony, she is a great person to work with. She understood exactly the kind of ceremony that we wanted from the beginning, and achieved that for us. Initially my parents were opposed to a non-church ceremony, but everyone was impressed with Julie's ceremony and they could not imagine the ceremony any other way. Everyone said that it totally suited me and my fiance. And even after reading over (and contributing to) our ceremony "script" numerous times, I still cried during the ceremony! Never thought I would :)

From her very insightful and detailed questionaire that allowed her to understand our personalities and why we wanted to spend our lives together to the draft of the ceremony to ensuring that every name and word was pronounced perfectly and clearly so that all could hear - throughout every step in the procress it was wonderful to work with Julie. While my husband and I thought that our ceremony was amazing all our guests could not stop commenting about how our ceremony was the most beautiful they had ever experienced. We can not recommend Julie Laudicina high enough.

We wanted a wedding ceremony that was a love story of us. Julie did that a so much more. The time and effort that julie put into making our ceremony memorable was above and beyond anything we could have dreamed of. When we first read it we laughed and cried and just smiled. It was Perfect! Our guests loved it almost as much as we did. It was very personal and she found a way to incorporate our Yankee theme and our blended family ritual, while still keeping it professional. Julie was a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend her services.

The time and effort that julie put into making our ceremony memorable was above and beyond anything we could have dreamed of. When we first read it we laughed and cried and just smiled. It was Perfect! Our guests loved it almost as much as we did. It was very personal and she found a way to incorporate our Yankee theme and our blended family ritual, while still keeping it professional. Julie was a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend her services. Read less

I highly recommend Julie's services. Our ceremony was customized and tweaked to perfection! She did an outstanding job and made our wedding day even more special. Our family and friends enjoyed the ceremony as well. They said it was the best ceremony they've ever witnessed and that it was great to learn more about my fiance and me, our history, and how we fell in love with one another. A++

Julie crafted our wedding ceremony with so much care, thoughtfulness and intelligence. Her elegance and poise only enhanced the delivery of our story and our vows to each other. Our guests all commented on how personal and touching the ceremony was. I highly recommend Julie Laudicina. I looked quite extensively for the right celebrant and my efforts paid off. Hopefully this review will save someone else time and effort.

Julie was by far the most professional of any vendor we spoke with. We were extremely impressed with the speed that Julie put together her written speech, her responsiveness to emails and suggestions, and her willingness to modify her comments based on our recommendations. Julie's prompt responses to emails and incredibly quick alterations to the script gave us a feeling of security and comfort as the big day approached. (I wish that I could say the same for our other vendors!) On the wedding day itself it rained, and we were forced to make some last minute adjustments. Julie did a fantastic job as we expected and had no problems with the last minute changes. Apparently she did even better than we thought, as I literally received dozens of comments from our family and guests about what a great job she did. I consider myself to be a very harsh critic. I would very rarely ever recommend an individual, a product or a service. However, I can honestly say that I would not hesitate to recommend Julie and I really think it would be difficult to find someone better.

Julie was amazing!!!!!! She took our story of how we met and our relationship to follow and turned it into this beautiful love story about us that really captured every moment of our relationship. We have been married 4 months now and my guests still to this day talk about how wonderful and captivating our ceremony was. It was entertaining and sincere from beginning to end.

Julie Laudicina is truly an artist. For those brides who are looking for an intimate, non-denominational ceremony, Julie is the woman! Both my husband and I were crying throughout the ceremony because of how perfectly Julie captured who we are, what we mean to one another and our shared hopes as a married couple. Out of several celebrants that I contacted, Julie was the first to respond and in her response, provided me with an outline of information I would need to create a perfect wedding. If I emailed Julie with questions, she followed through within a day or less, always providing alternatives and suggestions. I recommend Julie without hesitation and plan to call on her services when my husband and I renew our vows!

Julie was great! Having already eloped, we wanted a re-commitment ceremony in front of our friends and family. Once we sat down with her it was clear she understood how we wanted our ceremony to be. Throughout the process, Julie was very responsive and creative- and helped create a wonderful ceremony. On the day, she and her husband Joe guided the wedding party very expertly, and everything went smoothly. She was very poised and adlibbed quite well when the need arose. We had many guests comment to us about how nice the ceremony was, and how perfectly suited it was for us. We highly recommend Julie for any type of ceremony- traditional or otherwise!

Julie Laudicina celebrated our union with grace, flair and such loveliness that I would recommend her in a heartbeat to anyone who wishes to have a wedding ceremony filled with personality. Our celebration was a very intimate outdoors affair, and Julie adapted it to exactly what we had in mind. We met her and her husband once, a few months before the wedding, and all exchanges afterwards were via emails. She ALWAYS responded promptly, and with very good ideas. She is a five star all the way, and we are very grateful.

I would love to say that Julie was wonderful. She made our wedding ceremony so special. Our whole ceremony was based on a story about our lives and how we are moving foward. Everyone loved it and thought she personalized it beautifully. I would strongly recommend having Julie perform anyone's wedding ceremony. I couldn't have asked for anyone better.

I don't have enough amazing things to say about Julie. Coming from different religions and having a mom who was adament about having a Rabbi, we knew this would be a tough "vendor" to pick. However, after meeting Julie, we immediately felt at ease. She genuinely wanted to get to know us so she could make the perfect ceremony. Her process works so well - you meet and have an informal interview. See how you feel, this is something that has to feel right because it is so personal. About 6 months before the wedding, you get a questionarre for bride & groom to fill out independently. Questions range from what you like most about the other, family, deceased, ceremonial rituals, etc. Julie then creates a custom ceremony incorporating everything from the answers we provided. Then you have the opportunity to go back and forth as many times as needed to get things just right. With Julie, it was so easy!! She'll create something spiritual and religious or very light and cheery. We got soooooo many compliments about our ceremony because it was so personal and so us! Including from my parents and Grandmother. Thank you Julie!!

Julie Laudicina's genuine interest in the couples she serves, her eye for detail, and her years of experience all shine through in the ceremonies she writes. Her warm presence takes a well-written ceremony to new heights, and her willingness to adopt the couple's chosen level of solemnity ensures that the marriage starts off on the right foot. All of our guests remarked on how personal, intimate, and reflective of us our ceremony was, and we couldn't have done it without her!!

Julie was exceptionally helpful every step of the way. We were fortunate to find her. It was short notice, and she worked very well with us, always responding quickly to queries. What especially helped was that she took the initative to set a schedule in advance, and then made sure we followed the process.

She was wise and thoughtful when we needed it, but also flexible, and she didn't pressure us into her vision of the ceremony. She made us both feel at ease during the process. It was clear she put care into the ceremony. We felt like we ended up doing a lot of the writing of the script, but that's how we preferred it, and Julie gave us a framework to work in, which was invaluable. We ended up with an intimate, personalized ceremony. Julie performed her part excellently. We had a great response from our guests, who were very impressed.

Julie was a wonderful Officiant. She was very creative and offered alot of touching suggestions to help make our wedding a magical event. One of our important requests was to have her incorporate our 3 children into different aspects of the ceremony. She did a great job including them and helping them feel completely a part of our wedding. That was very special for us as well as children.
