Reverend Annie helped us create a beautiful ceremony

Reverend Annie helped us write and deliver a beautiful and meaningful wedding ceremony. We got tons of compliments on the beautiful words that were shared. And we were very thankful for Annie's warm, calm energy on our hectic wedding day. Reverend Annie navigated those little, minor speed bumps in our ceremony like a pro! We can't thank her enough!

May 4th be with you

Rev Annie was recommended to us by a photographer. We had a top class service from beginning to end. She is approachable, friendly, responsive to your needs. She helped us with our vows. Advised us on how to get a permit- all Whilst we were thousands of miles away in the UK.
The service itself was beautiful and something we will cherish forever 鉂わ笍
