    Great Intimate Elopement Ceremony.

    Ann braved the coldest night of the year for our outdoor elopement ceremony at 7:00pm and delivered a fantastic, love-based (i.e. secular) ceremony. She worked with us before and after to get us all the information we needed and help us stay informed. She also discussed contingency plans up-front, which is nice to hear when planning a ceremony in a pandemic. Very satisfied. Highly recommend.

    Ann McKenzie's reply:

    Josh,
    It was my honor to officiate your and Nancy's wedding. I was so impressed with her braving the 30-degree weather in a beautiful short-sleeved dress. The lights at the Meadows Wooded Chapel were truly magical for the wedding.

    10/10 Recommend to everybody

    Ann was such a pleasure to work with and helped our wedding day exceed our expectations. We were too shy to write our own vows but wanted something unique to us, she personalized our ceremony by writing "our love story". It was so fun and unique to us. She also recommended a unity ceremony with a tree in which we watered and will plant in our yard. Additionally, it was important to us to find an officiant who recognizes all forms of love and marriage. We couldn't of asked for a better officiant. We all said several times it felt like we've known each other for years!

    Ann McKenzie's reply:

    Bailey,
    It was my honor to officiate your and Josh's wedding. You were absolutely stunning in your wedding dress. I think the Love Story was a great way to show your guests how you feel about each other. Thank you so much for asking me to be part of your special day.
