If there is anyone who can make a virtual signing, during a pandemic with your family and friends, on a Zoom call, feel special - it's Rev. Annie and her wholesome cheer!

Rev. Annie was absolutely amazing to work with! She was super responsive and really helped guide us through the process of getting married during COVID! She made us both feel very comfortable - both in the license signing process - and prior to the ceremony. She was a perfect host and really helped bring structure to our Zoom wedding. All of our friends and family thought she was warm, personable, and friendly. We could not have asked for a better officiant for our COVID wedding.Sent on 03/24/2021

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
Just Sign Our License $195
This in-person Sign-Only service is based on my availability on a week-to-week basis. (Scheduled no more than 2wks in advance). You’ll be required to bring (1-2) witnesses, and to meet at a location near me in Greenwich Village/Soho NYC
This simple “I Do” and “Sign Here” option is for couples who want to save Vows & Rings for a later date, those on their way to a destination wedding, as well as couples who have asked a friend to officiate.
You can trust that I am legally registered since 2003 and authorized to sign your license. Our meeting will be short & sweet, and I will send you on your way with the confidence you are legally wed!
Annie Lawrence was such a pleasure to work with. I greatly appreciate the dedication she has to her work and to her couples, bringing them such peace and joy on their special day. My team and I hope to work with her again!
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!
Rev Annie is a fantastic officiant!! She has a wonderful personality that shines in her beautiful and warm ceremonies. Highly recommended!
