It has always been a dream to get married at the Church of the Wayfarer since I grew up in Carmel and went to this church every Sunday. Julie Morris, the wedding coordinator, helped make this perfect dream come true.

My husband and I live out of state so planning the wedding ceremony could have been a real challenge, but Julie made it very easy for us. She was very organized and helpful and guided us through each stage of the planning.

We had special requests like a mini reception in the garden for our guests as we took pictures. Julie set the whole thing up and even found a volunteer to pour the drinks for us. She found singers to perform a special song for us, took care of our live butterflies (for release instead of throwing rice), promptly took care of the marriage license, and found someone to video the ceremony! She handled so many little details that really could have overwhelmed us and that made all the difference.

Her demeanor was calm, caring but mostly just fun which makes it a pleasure to be around her. She made us feel very special on our special day. We cannot thank her enough for making our wedding ceremony flawless at this beautiful church.
