Some of my greatest pleasures in my life have been the opportunities I've been granted to assist brides and grooms-to-be with their "big day". It is such a joy to get to know a couple and learn "their story", and an even greater joy to be able to craft their story into a beautiful ceremony uniquely their own.
The majestic beauty and fascinating venues all around us make this corner of the world the perfect place for couples to celebrate their love and union. I'm fortunate to be able to also help couples in choosing from our area's dizzying array of talented vendors; thereby providing them an opportunity to create a beautiful celebration with exceptional cost and time efficiency. Whether you simply need an officiant or desire an intimate small wedding package, Gracefully Wed has you covered!
Best wishes for a bright and beautiful future together... we look forward to hearing from You!

Hired an officiant, left with a wonderful friend! She is phenomenal!
Anissa was absolutely phenomenal to work with from start to finish! From our very first introductory phone call, I felt instantly at ease with Anissa, and by the time she was standing next to us at our wedding, she truly felt like an old friend. Even if she tried, Anissa could not be more warm, gracious, engaging and professional! She is an absolute precious gem and we felt beyond lucky that we found her, I can't imagine having had anyone else there beside us.Sent on 08/18/2019
One of the best things about Anissa's approach is the time and care she takes in getting to know you. My husband and I had a long phone call with Anissa where she asked lots of questions about us as a couple and we were able to share stories about our relationship with her. This allowed her to craft a wedding ceremony that was personal and meaningful to us. There was nothing at all generic about our ceremony. And she was the consummate professional, when we asked for a few changes to her first draft of our ceremony, she was entirely gracious and accommodating, never making us feel awkward about anything! Her goal was very clearly for us to have a ceremony that was perfect for us. And that is exactly what we got - an absolutely beautiful, touching, and personal story of us. So don't hesitate in the slightest to make adjustments until your ceremony is perfect for you, without a doubt that's what Anissa would want.
On the day of our wedding Anissa made sure to come and meet me in person ahead of the ceremony, greeting me with a hug. I immediately felt so comfortable and at east - she felt like an old friend. While we were standing with her saying our vows, she was a comforting and calming presence by my side. Furthermore, our guests just loved her and enjoyed engaging with her as well!
Another key piece of information is that Anissa reviewed the personal vows we wrote to one another - to help us make sure that our length and tone were complementary. And then she printed out our vows so we didn't have to. Anissa also printed out a beautiful copy of the ceremony so we could have it as a keepsake.
By the time we said goodbye, Anissa felt like a true kindred spirit! You are the absolute best Anissa, we are so grateful to have shared our dream of a day with you!

Anissa is amazing!
My husband and I were extremely fortunate to have Anissa officiate our wedding. A dear friend of my Aunt, we fell in love with her immediately. She created a beautifully crafted, custom script for my husband and I which summed up our relationship and story perfectly. We had a very intimate ceremony at the Battery with our loved ones and she helped to create and deliver our vision. She was so helpful throughout the process and even recommended other vendors. But the one thing I'll always remember and appreciate was during our ceremony right after our vows were spoken, with tears rolling down our faces, and the excitement of finally becoming man and wife- I went to put the ring on my husband's finger and was in a semi- outer body state when Anissa whispered to me which hand was his left hand. It seems simple- but it was so much more. Anissa is thoughtful and intentional with everything she does and it truly makes a difference. Thank you Anissa! You are such a beautiful soul and we are so thankful to have had you officiate our wedding.

The perfect ceremony!
Anissa is my first review to write after getting married, and rightfully so! The ceremony was incredibly important to me and I wanted to find a officiant that understood who we are as a couple and custom write a ceremony for us. From the first moment of speaking to Anissa I knew she was our gal- kindhearted, warm and understanding. She knew exactly what questions to ask my now husband and how to involve him in a way that made him comfortable and she got all the details that were important to me. She also ran our rehearsal the day before and made sure that everyone was comfortable and happy. Anissa took the time driving to our venue and waiting for all of us to arrive (in afternoon traffic and with delay) and then even offered to take my in-laws back to town as their Uber did not arrive in time. That is just exactly who she is as a person- loving and kind. The ceremony she wrote for us was perfection, and it was my favorite part of our wedding! Anissa gave us a little folder with the printed out version of our ceremony and the poems that we used - which is such a sweet sentiment for us to have! Thank you so much for making our ceremony dreams come true! For all the couples that are yet to get married - do not look any further, Anissa is the best out there! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!Sent on 10/25/2018
