About Us

Hi, I’m Rev. Annie, ordained Interfaith Minister & licensed Wedding Officiant in New York City
for ALL couples. I am proud to celebrate Marriage Equality!

I have over 10 yrs of experience in preparing and celebrating weddings,
and have now officiated over 1,000 ceremonies all over NYC and surrounding areas, as well as destination weddings. I love what I do!

It's my pleasure to create your civil, spiritual, non-denominational
or relgious ceremony, including the personal, cultural, and 
romantic influences that make your ceremony meaningful to you.

I have performed weddings in Central Park, hotel suites, chapels,
private homes, rooftops, reception halls, restaurants and chartered cruises.
I have done ceremonies at the beach, on the Brooklyn Bridge
and in a helicopter over Manhattan. It's your dream and your day...
I love to travel, I'll go anywhere you go.

Whether you are eloping or inviting everyone you know,
I am just as comfortable officiating a small, intimate service
as I am in front of a large group of family and friends.

Every couple I meet, every ceremony I celebrate, is special and memorable.
I am confident, at ease, and at peace on your wedding day--
and I hope to allow you to feel the same way about your ceremony--
relaxed, ready, and truly present to enjoy and celebrate!

When we began searching for a wedding officiant, we discussed what type of feeling we would like to have conveyed during our ceremony. We wanted our guests to know how deeply we loved each other and excited we were to be married, and how happy we were they were there to celebrate with us. When we met with Annie, within 5 minutes we knew that she would convey these feelings. Her tone of voice, the sparkle in her eyes, and the general warmth Annie exudes were exactly what we wanted. Annie listened intently as we told her about our courtship and what marriage means to us. As we worked together over the next few months to put together our ceremony, she wove these elements in and made any adjustments we asked for. She struck the right balance of spiritual without being overtly religious and helped to incorporate members both families and important traditions into her words. One of the most important roles she played for us was sitting with each of us independently before the ceremony to help calm those last minute jitters. She helped us to focus on why we were there, to block out all that was happening around us and to breathe. This quiet time allowed both of us to find our center and quiet the nerves and excitement and allow us to fully enjoy our ceremony. She guided us throughout the 30 minute ceremony and there were very few dry eyes among our guests. So many people told us afterwards how genuinely happy she seemed marrying us and how lovely her words were.

Having an Officiant colleague like Rev. Annie Lawrence become a friend in the New York City wedding market is a real gift. I knew when we first made connections that we shared a lot in common, from our desire to serve Brides and Grooms to the best of our ability to our support of Marriage Equality in New York and across the country. Rev. Annie is a great choice for your wedding, regardless of your spiritual viewpoint. She will make certain that you have the wedding of your dreams, and you'll make a lifelong friend in the process. It is wonderful to have another Officiant in New York City to whom I can refer clients I'm unable to serve with the full confidence that they and their special day will be treated with then same deference, respect and love that I would provide. I am very proud to offer Rev. Annie my endorsement as well as my heartfelt recommendation as a fabulous fellow-Officiant in our Tri-state area and beyond. You'll love her -- just as I do!
