Incredibly meaningful and personal ceremony

Rabbi Annie prioritized building a relationship with me and my husband during the process of planning our ceremony. We really felt like Rabbi Annie put a lot of energy into getting to know us and creating an incredibly personalized ceremony. She is really sweet, kind, and genuine. Her words during the ceremony touched our hearts and made an impact on everyone at the wedding. Thank you Rabbi Annie for helping us create the most beautiful and heartfelt experience.

The most special Rabbi Ever

Rabbi Bornstein helped us make our wedding the most amazing and special day for both of our lives and it wouldn't have been possible without her. Everyone who came told us how special and spiritual the ceremony was. We both cried at different parts because of how moving it was. We both had the most meaningful ketubah signing and ceremony knowing that we got married by someone close and special to us. We loved the kind words Rabbi Bornstein said about us, it was very sweet and we will remember/cherish it forever. We cannot thank her enough. Truly.

We want to tell everyone getting married that Rabbi Bornstein is the most amazing person who could officiate a wedding. She took time and so much effort to make our day special, personal and meaningful. You just felt that this was the most important day in her world as well. Thank you again Rabbi!

An absolute treasure!

Rabbi Annie is such a delight and a pleasure to work with. We had a same-gender, interfaith, intercultural celebration, and she helped us blend our traditions and bring everything together into a seamless and moving ceremony. We still have guests telling us how much they loved the ceremony, and Rabbi Annie in particular. Her speech was amazing and very moving, and I was touched by how she talked about us at the ceremony. And she is such a sweet, genuine, and delightful person as well!

Before the ceremony, we also met with her several times to discuss our relationship, our goals for the future, what we like about each other, the importance of various things in our relationship, etc. This was super helpful! It was great to be able to explore all these questions with my partner. While we had discussed many of these before, the way Rabbi Annie asked the questions and the specific questions that were asked illuminated some things I hadn't known before and helped me to get closer to my now-wife :) It also helped us get to know Rabbi Annie more, which made the ceremony and wedding seamless.

Overall, highly recommend!

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.
