Rev. Annie made our Zoom License Signing perfect
My partner and I had been looking at wedding venues in February. When we realized our plans would be put off with no end in sight, and anything family-only + socially distanced was ruled out due to the border closure (I'm Canadian), we went looking for a Zoom officiant. Rev. Annie exceeded expectations: her communication is always quick and clear, her remarks during our brief ceremony were moving and she marshaled us through the paperwork with ease while conversing with our witnesses to fill any awkward silences while we fiddled with Docusign. She took screenshot photos and sent us an album afterwards. Hard times speed up good decisions, and we're thrilled Rev. Annie was a part of our day :)Sent on 08/05/2020

Annie made our Zoom Wedding so special! From our very first conversation, I knew she was going to go the extra mile to make an unconventional wedding incredibly easy and intimate. Her words were straight from the heart and made my husband and I cherish every moment. I would highly recommend Annie to anyone!Sent on 06/10/2020

A wonderful, beautiful small wedding
Rev. Annie officiated our wedding two days ago. She was so amazing that I couldn’t wait to write this review. My new husband and I have been together as a couple for many years, but we decided to make it official with a small, home wedding. We communicated with Rev. Annie by email and phone and had a really good feeling, but were still concerned if the wedding would be lovely given the size of our NYC apartment. As soon as Rev. Annie entered the apartment, all concerns were gone. Her warmth and kindness filled the apartment. The service was wonderful, and her words were prefect. It was the lovely and beautiful wedding of our dreams.Sent on 11/02/2019

Annie Lawrence is a wonderful wedding officiant. As a professional wedding photographer, I always want to be as discreet and respectful as possible during the wedding ceremony. Annie understands how important photos are to the couples she marries while keeping the focus on the emotional and loving occasion that brought everyone together. In short, she is fantastic to work with. Highly recommended!
