About AnitaWeds

As a professionally trained Life-Cycle Celebrant, I believe all couples deserve a unique and personal ceremony. Working closely with you, I will create a completely customized ceremony for you and will give you control of every aspect of the ceremony - from the readings, to the vows, and every word I say. My goal is make sure your ceremony reflects your personality and interests - and is all about YOU.

I would be honored to help you create a memorable ceremony that celebrates your story together. www.AnitaWeds.com

    Anita helped create a meaningful and memorable celebration!

    We were so lucky to find Anita; what a pleasure to work with! Meeting with her helped us focus and bring together lots of ideas we were considering for our ceremony. Her experience and thoughtful input and feedback resulted in a lovely, meaningful, emotional ceremony that represented who we are as a couple. Our friends and family are still talking about how touched they were and how much the ceremony reflected us. Thank you, Anita, for helping us create such a memorable celebration!

    Responsive, Professional and Personalized

    As a non-denominational couple that has family members that are very faith based, we spent a lot of time looking for an officiant that could turn our love story into a ceremony that would be loved by all. From our first meeting to the wedding, Anita was very responsive, professional, and always had a handle on next steps to keep everything moving forward without it being overwhelming. She took so many personal elements and jokes from our love story and turned it into a beautiful ceremony that we continue to get compliments on. She’s great at giving recommendations and personalized ideas if you get stuck on what poems etc. to include. That was a huge help! She was also great at directing family during the rehearsal etc. so that everyone knew what to do on the big day. There are lots of photos of family going between tears and laughter all ceremony, and we wouldn’t have had it any other way. We highly recommend Anita!

    Simply the best!!!!

    Anita was a dream to work with! She is professional and one of the nicest people
    My wife and I have ever met. She made us feel so comfortable and made sure the ceremony was everything we ever wanted. She spends so much time getting to know you and personalizing your special day. We received so many compliments on our ceremony and it was all due to Anita! She really is simply the best and I highly recommend her!
