We are a team of profesionals who Love Love Love doing wedding ceremonies! We thrive on helping couples figure out what they want for their ceremony.
Lets face it, most couples do not know what they want in a ceremony. After all it isn't something that alot of thought is put into. Couples just know one thing "WE WANT TO GET MARRIED".
So we start by asking questions, what do you like? Theme of the wedding? What don't you like? Are you having pets? Kids? You get the idea.
We ask a lot of questions. Don't worry though we will write it all down. We developed a form to keep us and you on track - after all your time is often in short supply.
We will discuss your options, give you ideas and before you know it, your ceremony is done. Easy as can be - all done in convenience of in your own home on your own time frame. Technology can be wonderful.
We believe every couple deserves to have the ceremony that they want - even if they don't know what that is initially. We believe that our clients deserve to be acknolwedged and listen to. We believe that couples should be able to remember at least some of their ceremony! We believe any couple should be shown respect, consideration for their beliefs and values. We believe that every couple deserves to get married and be crazy in love!

Though my partner, Josh, and I - both in our early sixties and previously married - shared a keep-things-simple mantra in relation to our wedding, great effort was required, through most of 2020 and its COVID complications, to adapt plans and manage expectations. By September, wedding rings and clothing were in place, but our license was still pending (following a county records error) and we were having difficulty finding a Minneapolis-based officiant whose availability aligned with ours and that of our respective sons and their partners (as witnesses) and a dear friend's who'd offered to make a cake for our backyard, no more than ten, distanced/masked wedding.Sent on 09/29/2020
With a long-awaited and much-needed North Shore vacation in view, and disappointment-fatigue mounting, I declared that I was tired of wedding planning and was going to focus on vacation planning. However, I found myself unable to resist one last online search for Duluth-area officiants who might be available during the dates of our trip - which led me/us to Marry Me in the Northland (MMN), and Annette.
I submitted a Monday late-afternoon query through the MMN website to the effect of 'it's probably a longshot, but would Annette be available on any of the following dates.' Shortly afterward, Annette replied - positively - with dates and times, and suggested that we talk directly the next morning. Chatting with Annette felt like a conversation with a longtime friend. My spirits lightened considerably - and perhaps synchronously, our corrected wedding license arrived in that day's mail.
Between that Tuesday morning conversation and our early Saturday afternoon ceremony. Annette maintained close contact despite her busy schedule. She was warm, funny, and a good listener, professional and organized. She understood that Josh and I had adapted from a simple wedding plan to an impromptu elopement and made sure that it felt special and expressive of us as a couple. Her colleagues, Jean and Jason, who served as our witnesses and photographers, were equally gracious. Ultimately, our wedding, on the shore of Lake Superior, beneath Leif Erikson Park's rose garden - Annette's suggested location - in unseasonable Fall warmth, felt as lovely and perfect as it could possibly be.
Next week, when members of our original wedding party belatedly gather to celebrate, we will raise a toast to Annette, Jean and Jason for giving us this most memorable day.

Annette Lahr did a wonderful job officiating our wedding. She was extremely easy to work with and very personable. She was inspiring and did a great job presenting our requested script and vows. She was very helpful in providing script ideas as well as other resources needed such as a photographer. She is a very friendly and sincere person. We would strongly recommend her services. Ian and Tammy
