Weddings with Serenity

$250 Typical Price

So how does someone who's won so many awards on Weddingwire NOT earn them in the past couple years? I had some health issues that made it impossible for me to work for much of the time. I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer in Jan 2020 and am grateful to be a survivor. In 2021, I fell and broke my shoulder and was imobilized in a sling for much of the year. I continue to provied the same outstanding ceremony services.

    Ann MADE our day special!!

    When my wife and I decided to hire an officiant, we decided to interview a free people on zoom. The moment we saw Ann on our screen and began to speak to her, we without doubt, knew she was the one! Lol

    She not only took her time asking us the correct questions, but she also genuinely took interest to knowing us as a couple. We felt as if we had known her for years.

    Once we had agreed to hire her, she sent a very professional package to go over and gave us the options of several ceremonies to choose from.

    The day of she was professionally dressed and prompt! There is not a person who watches our wedding video that does not comment on how articulate and warm her words are. She truly made our wedding ceremony so incredible and unforgettable.

    If you are looking for someone to officiate your wedding, look no further, Ann is your person!

As a musician who plays over 80 weddings a year, I have the opportunity to work with many officiants, soooo, with that being said, it is with GREAT pleasure that I 'whole heartedly' endorse Ann of A Wedding with Serenity for your wedding! In addition to being very pleasant to work as a fellow vendor, she arrived early to go over all the songs and details with me to make everything 'perfect', and along with her lovely personalized words, and sincere delivery, it's always a pleasure for me to listen to her! Congratulations on your upcoming wedding, and you CANNOT do better than choosing Ann for your special day!
