Highly recommend! Ann was perfect!
We met Ann at a wedding expo. To be perfectly honest, I was a bit worried about choosing someone we didn't know previously, especially since our wedding was LGBT, but based on our short interaction with her and her Wedding Wire reviews, we decided to take a leap of faith. Boy am I glad we did!Sent on 05/20/2019
Ann officiated our wedding and she was spectacular. She took a lot of time to write a ceremony that was exactly what we wanted. We wanted to keep scripture out of the service, but still bring in elements of religion/spirituality from our two separate religion. Ann was able to accomplish this perfectly and write/deliver a really powerful ceremony that everyone loved! I think every single person attending our wedding came up and told us that the ceremony was the best they’d ever been to. Ann stayed for a bit after the ceremony and she had a line of people who were waiting to talk to her - everyone really enjoyed her. We couldn't have asked for anyone better and wouldn't have changed a single thing!

Wonderful, personalized ceremony
Ann was a wonderful officiant for our recent wedding. Ann met us in person, got to know us, and outlined how she would put together a ceremony. She made sure that the ceremony was true to us, and allowed us to add our personal stories and anecdotes to the ceremony. Ann was very easy to work with and did an outstanding job.Sent on 09/19/2019
