Wow!! Thank you SO much, Julie. We couldn’t have done it without you, and you made our day wonderful.

Reviewed on The Knot & Wedding Wire: 5 Stars! Amazing!! 

Thank you Susan & Julie!! First, our wedding was to be on 10/10/20, but it got rescheduled! Then, on 10/18/20 it was FREEZING cold, & we had to wait for my parents for more than 15 min. Susan & Julie supported my husband and I through all of this. We can plan all we want, but ultimately things will go according to a plan beyond our control. Julie made our day & our wedding AMAZING. Thank you SO much!!!

We highly recommend Affordable I Do’s. Susan has thought of everything and made it extremely easy for us to create our own meaningful ceremony. Rev. Julie Ann was also great to work with and did an incredible job performing our ceremony. She was very prompt, professional, relaxed, and kind. We could not have asked for anything more!

As the name suggests, we got great value for the service provided. Julie Ann was such a kind, welcoming smile even when it felt like things were going very wrong. She was quick to improvise when our daughter made a scene and she made me feel so comfortable standing in front of all my family and friends despite my nerves.

Perfect Day Ceremonies made our day PERFECT

Susan was a wonderful resource when it came to all the components that we wanted in our ceremony. She gave us just enough options without making it overwhelming. Rev. Julie Ann Schauer did a beautiful job performing our ceremony and made it feel uniquely us. My uncle even made a point to say, “Your minister really hit it out of the park! Beautiful service”. Julie Ann has also been a dream to work through our premarital counseling with and has helped us identify areas we can work on as a couple to make our relationship even stronger. Rev. Julie Ann made our special day feel truly special.

Dear Rev. Julie Ann, I wanted to make sure to let you and Susan know how much we appreciated you both and say THANK YOU so much from the bottom of our hearts for all you have done and for making everything go so smooth for us!

We would have been lost without you Julie, from the music playlist,to the way you kept certain people in check with the drama and chaos from others; not only on our wedding day, but also at the rehearsal. The second I saw you on our wedding day, while we were taking pictures, I instantly felt relieved and at ease! And you made things so comfortable while I was crying my eyes out saying vows, so I hope you know you really made a huge impact on the most important day of our lives! Andy also made a point to tell me several times how you were PERFECT and just what we needed on our day!!! So again, THANK YOU so so much for everything!!! Julie you are amazing at what you do and we cannot stress enough how blessed we were to have you as our reverend!

Susan, I also wanted to thank you so so much for answering my calls when you were on vacation when you didn’t have to, and for truly caring and taking the time to talk to me when I was in a panic about where to start or what to do! You were the very first person Andy contacted and he couldn’t have picked a better fit for us!!! So again, we truly were blessed to have had you guys apart of our big day! I definitely will be referring you to everyone I know that gets married in the future and I’m hoping we’ll be blessed to contact you again when we re-new vows later in life! Thank you so so much from the bottom of our hearts!!!

Review from The Knot: We initially decided on Affordable I Do’s after attending a friend’s wedding that Susan officiated. Although Susan wasn’t available for our wedding ceremony, another on her team, Julie Ann, officiated for us and did a wonderful job. We loved working with Susan initially to customize our ceremony, and she makes it as straightforward as possible and gives lots of options for readings, format, etc., in order to get the right “vibe.” Highly recommend Susan and her company!

Lydia & Michael ~ May 28th, 2016

We had Julie Ann as our officiant on 9-19-15. She was amazing!!! She was a joy to work with, super personable, and knew how to get the job done!! She worked with the other vendors on making things run smoothly and on time. She was one of the reasons our day was perfect!! Would definitely recommend her to anyone!!!

Danelle & Derek ~ September 19th, 2015

Julie Ann,

We want to thank you for all you time and efforts into making our ceremony special.  We received so many compliments about how genuine and personal it was.  Thank you!

Nancy & Josh ~ July 11th, 2015

Julie, Thank you so much for everything!  We got so many compliments on our ceremony.  In fact, most of the guest said it was the best ceremony they had ever seen!! Thank you for making this day the most special day of my life!  🙂

Dear Rev. Julie Ann, Thank you so very much for doing our ceremony you were so kindhearted and warm! We had such wonderful and beautiful day!

Shawn & Tatiana ~ June 14th, 2014

Reviewed on Wedding Wire:  We had Reverend Julie Ann Schauer and she was just wonderful! She was so incredibly helpful! She came a little more than half hour early (they guarantee half hour) and was immediately asking what she could do to help. She was fun and energetic and she was exactly what we were hoping for. For someone who was to play such a big role in our wedding day, we were nervous that we had not met her yet. We read reviews and everyone else seemed to like her. After meeting Rev. Schauer, we were incredibly impressed. I encourage anyone looking for an officiant, regardless if you want a religious or spiritual or civil marriage, to go with Affordable I Dos. The price was comparable to anything else I found but they were well worth it to have our ceremony go smoothly. I would recommend them to anyone and everyone.
