Rev. Julie Petroski is a Certified Life-Cycle Celebrant, a specially trained ceremony specialist.

Rev. Julie’s practice as a Celebrant differs from that of a traditional officiant. She has trained with and been certified by the Celebrant Foundation and Institute to envision, write, and perform uniquely personal ceremonies.

A RiteWords ceremony does much more than meet functional or legal requirements—it truly celebrates its participants and embraces those observing.

Using tools like the RiteWords Questionnaire™, Rev. Julie will get to the heart of your intention and work with you to develop the specific words and meaningful rituals to mark your milestone.

When you work with Rev. Julie to create your perfect ceremony, you’ll tap into Rev. Julie’s nearly three decades of writing and presenting experience as an advertising copywriter and creative director. Her storytelling skills as a children’s book author, unquenchable curiosity, and passion for bringing people together will ensure that your ceremony is memorable and unique.

In addition to her education as a Celebrant, Rev. Julie is an ordained minister and graduate of the University of California, Berkeley.  

She officiates at ceremonies in North Texas and Parry Sound/Muskoka, Ontario, as well as other locations in the U.S. and Canada upon request.
