Rabbi Annie Bornstein
Rabbi Bornstein provided valuable Counseling to us throughout the process, even though we didn't think we needed it. She was very accomodating, very incisive, and very inspirational. The service she performed was appreciated greatly by all.Sent on 12/01/2019

Wonderful ceremony tailored to us!
Rabbi-Cantor Bornstein created a beautiful ceremony for us, tailored to everything we had wanted and more. It was traditional but personalized for us, and the ceremony felt so special and warm. A highlight was also her beautiful voice for the prayers.Sent on 01/14/2020

Rabbi Annie was great
It was a pleasure to have Rabbi Annie officiate her wedding. She did a great job walking us through the process, was flexible enough for us to combine traditional and contemporary elements of a Jewish wedding, and gave very touching remarks during the ceremony. We are so grateful that she was part of our special day!Sent on 10/31/2019
A great company to work with. We highly recommend. Thank you Solace Weddings LLC
Rabbi-Cantor Annie Bornstein performed the ceremony for my clients wedding this past weekend. She was easy to plan with and very responsive to confirm details. Her delivery of the service was so thoughtful, she kept the guests engaged with her humor and brought tears to their eyes (happy tears) with touching moments. She was a breeze to work with, and I truly appreciated her punctuality & kindness! If you're getting married, she's your Rabbi/Cantor!
Rabbi-Cantor Annie is a delight! As a photographer, I work so hard to be respectful of my couples' ceremonies, and document them without being intrusive. Annie and I chatted informally before the ceremony, and she trusted me to capture the ceremony respectfully without imposing difficult restrictions on where I could be or what I could do. It was such a relief. At the ceremony itself, she was warm, kind, thoughtful, and led a beautiful ceremony. And, she was unflappable in the face of a temperamental sound system AND loud planes flying overhead. I've seen ceremonies disrupted by far less, but she made the best of it and kept everything flowing smoothly and everyone focused on the precious moment at hand.
