    Rabbi Annie can't be beat!

    Rabbi Annie was the perfect choice to officiate our wedding and we'll forever fondly remember our ceremony and the time we spent with her in the months leading up. From day 1 until the day of the ceremony, everything was better than we could have ever expected.

    Rabbi Annie spent hours with us over Zoom in the months leading up to our wedding, learning about our relationship, our families and our preferences for the ceremony. She always had nice things to say and great advice for us along the way. We had a lot of laughs and still remember her words today. She was also sure to take note of every detail we wanted for the ceremony and was extremely accommodating of everything. Her dedication is clear when you see how much thought she puts into every detail - down to the pronunciation of everybody's name.

    The day of was perfect as well. Our ketubah signing was memorable and our families and witnesses loved her. She conducted the ceremony with grace and humor and we've heard so much feedback that our ceremony was emotional and beautiful. It went perfectly according to plan and included everything we wanted.

    We would wholeheartedly recommend Rabbi Annie to anyone and everyone!

    Amazing interfaith service

    Rabbi Annie is simply the best. For our interfaith wedding, she wrote and conducted a beautiful service which explained the jewish parts of the ceremony as well as included both the hebrew and english for the prayers. So many of our guests came up to us and stated that it was the nicest wedding service they had been to. Rabbi Annie really listened to what we wanted our ceremony to look like and delivered a highly customized and tailored event. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!

    The best rabbi for our wedding, EXCELLENT

    She was a fabulous rabbi offering us counseling sessions that were really enjoyable and a great way for her to get to know us. From those sessions she got to know us as a couple and was able to personalize our wedding ceremony. She was willing to accommodate us with our I’m untraditional ceremony. She was extremely kind and funny and warm. She was extremely punctual professional but also made an effort to connect with us. I would absolutely recommend her for any wedding ceremony and cannot express how grateful we are to have had her support us on our wedding day. We had a part Jewish part Hindu wedding and she was extremely accommodating to the schedule of our ceremony.

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.
