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.
