Rev. Annie is so wonderful. She was the most professional person I have worked with in a while. She took the responsibility off our shoulders and allowed us to worry about very little. She is sweet and sincere when she talks and immediately makes you feel at ease. Our wedding day was so much better with her in it. I would highly recommend her to anyone in NYC. Just lovely!

Having Annie with us to celebrate our intimate destination wedding in NYC was just amazing. Already the preparation and planning showed us that we had made the right decision. She tried to understand our expectations and offered information and advice on everything we needed. As we are from Europe and had to plan everything from far away this was so helpful.
She was able to create an intimate, personal ceremony choosing the perfect words to make this moment special and unforgettable for us. Her honesty and passion made our wedding day perfect, even the snow storm could not change that.. :)
So there is nothing more to say than THANK YOU!

We travelled from Scotland to get married in New York and chose Rev Annie to be our officiant based on the number of positive reviews we had read about her. We could not have asked for a better wedding officiant! In the lead up to the wedding, Annie maintained excellent communication with us and made any adjustments with regards to our ceremony as we requested. She answered our questions in a timely and supportive manner and kept in contact with us right up until the point of the wedding. The ceremony and the delivery of it exceeded our expectations. It was thoughtful, sincere, and compassionate, and it included the right amount of laughter. Annie is extremely approachable and makes an effort to get to know you and your guests. Everyone at the wedding commented on not only how lovely the ceremony was, but also how Annie was able to relax and put everyone at ease. We could not have been happier regarding Annie’s professionalism and her kindness towards us and we know we have now made a very dear friend in New York. Thanks again for making our day so memorable.

My husband and I got married married in New York. And despite the fact that we live in Florida, Rev Annie was able to get to know us via email and phone calls. She was able to capture our sentiments and created a beautiful ceremony. We found her through a recommendation of a friend and could not have made a better choice. She is a genuinely kind and joyful person.

From the very first email, skype chats in between and even now a month after the wedding, Rev Annie is always such a kind hearted and warm woman who made our wedding ceremony unforgettable. She was always helpful and informative and we felt at such ease with her it felt like we were getting married by someone we knew. her words for our ceremony were heartfelt and beautiful, she thanked our family and friends for being there and spoke about our daughter such a personal touch! The whole reading was so enotional, there was not a dry eye around. Such a genuine lovely woman, we would without a doubt reccomend her and only wish we could do it all again.

Reverend Annie was great. My husband and I were VERY nervous going into the ceremony, but she was calm and soothing. She took us through the ceremony alone, and that really put our minds at ease. During the ceremony she was thoughtful and poised, and really verbalized what we wanted people to know about our union. She was also very supportive leading up to the big day, with thoughtful texts and voicemails.

We cannot say enough good things about Rev. Annie. In addition to being the embodiment of non-denominational spirituality that we were looking for in an officiant, she is also incredibly professional, punctual, helpful, caring, calming....the list could go on and on. She helped us to build a ceremony that truly represented who we are as a couple and the love that we have for one another, and did so in an incredibly patient manner despite us constantly making changes. She was calm yet detail oriented & organized while leading our rehearsal and during the nerve-wracking period prior to the ceremony; knowing she was there really helped to put our minds at ease. Our fairly religious families were initially a bit hesitant about a non-denominational wedding, but commented afterwards that it was the most beautiful, spiritual ceremony they had ever witnessed, and we feel the same. She is also just an incredibly interesting person who was fun to talk to and to get to know. Thanks, Rev. Annie - you're the best!

Amazing - what a find! We were from out of town but found Annie via a referral. It was like finding a lost part of our soul. She instantly became a part of our family from the first skype meeting! Many folks commented after the ceremony about how amazing she was and inquired about how many years we had known her. She incorporated our life, family and spirituality into the perfect ceremony. We met with her several times prior both on skype and in person and she guided us through the process. She incorporated our feedback and patiently took on multiple iterations to get us to OUR ceremony. Thrilled beyond words that she was a part of our ceremony and now forever a part of our lives.

Rev. Annie helped make the planning of my surprise wedding vow renewal to my husband simple and easy. It was a wonderful day for me and my husband. She captured so much of our life within the ceremony based on questions she asked me throughout the planning. I would definitely recommend her to everyone!

Rev. Annie is one of the most amazing people we have ever met! She has one of the kindest and sweetest spirits we have ever been fortunate enough to be around. Although we may have had cold hands in Central Park in November we had warm hearts because she made sure our day was incredibly memorable, special, and specific to us. All of our guests commented that the ceremony that Rev. Annie performed was the most beautiful and "couple specific" wedding ceremony they have ever heard. There was not anything generic about the ceremony she created. We are so very thankful that we had Rev. Annie perform our ceremony! She is truly one of a kind and the perfect person to officiate any and couple’s wedding!!!

Our wedding day was perfect and one we will remember for the rest of our lives thanks to Reverend Annie. After a very last minute email request seeking Annie's services to officiate our wedding with just 5 days notice, we were very happy and relieved to receive her prompt and enthusiastic reply stating that she was able to accommodate us, despite having another wedding booked earlier on the same day. You would not know that she had just arrived from another wedding, because Annie was completely composed and professional and was able to coordinate our small party without any pre-discussion or planning and set a beautiful mood and ceremony. We provided Annie with some details about ourselves two days before the ceremony, and Annie was able to craft this information into a very personal and touching ceremony that she delivered with her joyous, friendly manner. Her delivery of the ceremony was the greatest surprise and brought out the emotion in us both and elevated our wedding day to something that was incredibly special. Annie made everything straightforward, provided advice and took care of all the official paper work. I highly recommend Annie and thank her for making our day truly memorable.

Annie was AMAZING! We got married on a cruise ship and thus did not get to pick or meet our officiant prior to the day. Annie was so positive and uplifting and personable. She made our ceremony so special and unique to us. I could not have picked a better person to marry us! She drove my husband to tears with her words. I can not sing her praises enough!

It was a pleasure having Annie officiate our wedding. Leading up to our big day, Annie was very reassuring and comforting as she navigated us through both the planning process and the official legal paperwork we needed to do.

Right before we walked down the aisle, Annie gave each of us a separate pep talk reminding us why we were there, not to be nervous, and some last minute tips.

At the ceremony, her words were beautiful and her emotions were genuine. We had SO many of our friends and family tell us after the ceremony and even weeks later that they thought the ceremony was amazing and Annie was great.

Annie made our wedding so incredibly special. We couldn't recommend her any more highly.

We eloped last week and were married by Reverend Annie Lawrence. She was excellent. We communicated with her a lot prior to the elopement (from Australia) and she was always readily available and responsive. On the day we immediately felt at ease, she was very genuine and sincere. She conducted a beautiful, intimate ceremony and we were so happy with her services. I cannot recommend her highly enough. Just perfect.

We attended a wedding last year that Rev. Annie officiated and because it was so memorable and nice, we decided to use her for our ceremony. Rev. Annie graciously welcomed everyone and immediately made everyone feel relaxed on what could be a nervous day. A few months prior to our wedding, Annie send us several drafts for us to look at and we were able to communicate and work together on crafting the perfect ceremony. Her service was just the right length, not being to short, and all of our guests loved the thoughtful and personalized service. Everything was quite detailed with every detail taken care of by Rev Annie.
It was simply amazing and we couldn't imagine anyone any better! A true treasure!
