We couldn’t have asked for a better person to officiate our wedding! After one meeting with Annemarie, her energy, passion, professionalism and charm won us over. She was extremely helpful and full of suggestions throughout the whole wedding planning process. She created a thoughtful, personalized ceremony that beautifully captured our relationship and put our story into words, often better than we would have been able to do ourselves. Her warmth, grace and expertise impressed all of our guests and put us at ease during the ceremony. Looking back on our wedding day, we wouldn’t have changed a thing about the ceremony that Annemarie created. We would highly recommend Annemarie to be part of your wedding celebration!

I’m writing as the mother of the bride to thank Annemarie for a beautiful ceremony. I had compliments all night about how well it was done, how touching and personal it was and how joyful it felt. Annemarie is very professional and knows what she’s doing. She puts a lot of thought into each individual ceremony to make it their own. I know my daughter and her new husband will never forget it. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Kim, it was my happiness to share in your daughter's wedding day. I left Claire and Karl with the happiest of hearts. Thank you for the graciousness shown to me and for the loving kindness you brought to such a beautiful day.
Now that things are slowing down after the wedding and honeymoon, Vince and I have had a lot of time to reflect on our wedding. The whole day feels like a dream and our ceremony was perfect. We laughed and and cried (a long with our guests) and got so lost in each other and in the moment. We can't thank you enough for making it so special. We are still getting so many complements. We hear that people could feel the genuine love and joy shared between Vince and I and the two families. I have a good friend of my moms who is photographer and has been to many weddings say that our ceremony was the best she has been to and that she has never been to one that was so heartfelt. We also have some people say that it allowed them to reflect on their own marriages and remember why they made a commitment to their significant others in the first place. I tear up as I write this because I am truly thankful for you and the beautiful ceremony you officiated. Thank you for bringing to families together and for making our ceremony one that will be remembered for years to come!
Annemarie wrote a completely personal and touching ceremony for our wedding that everyone loved. We got SO many compliments on our ceremony! She really works with you to include the best personal touches as well as other unique ideas. She was wonderful to work with and we are so happy that we chose her to officiate our wedding!
It was an absolute blessing to stumble across Annemarie as I was searching for someone to marry us on our big day. The moment I met Annemarie, it felt as if I had known her for years. She brings such a beautiful energy wherever she goes. The ceremony she wrote and the way in which she delivered it on our big day was even more magical than I could have dreamed of! The process of planning a wedding can be overwhelming, and I was able to completely hand off my entire ceremony to Annemarie and not even worry about how it would go. She will be one of the best decisions you make for your wedding!
Annemarie was beyond wonderful. She spent lots of time getting to know us. She was great with communication, offered amazing ideas, and answered all our questions and then some. Annemarie made our ceremony something incredibly unique and it was filled with everything that made my husband and I a couple. She went above and beyond for what we were looking for. It was important to us that the people who were there felt welcome, that they laugh, the ceremony be lighthearted and full of love. Afterwords everyone couldn't stop talking about how wonderful a job she did. She puts her heart and soul into this. She is extremely personable, easy to work with, and full of energy and excitement for you as a couple. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone who is planning a wedding.
I was so happy to finally meet you yesterday and when Dawn and I were taking photos in the bedroom, I heard you arrive. I said to Dawn, "That's Annemarie! She's here!" And I felt so excited!
Months back when Dave and I had taken our original script of our ceremony to a local coffee shop to review, we read it together and both of us cried. We knew then that you were going to make it incredible. We wondered-if your orchestrated words and ideas taken from our work sheets evoked that response in us then, what kind of emotional messes were we going to be on the actual day?
I knew all along that what you delivered for us was going to create the feelings we were looking to come away with from our ceremony.
Yesterday, I recognized much of the written ceremony that I had reviewed-but there was more. And it only worked to further cultivate the feelings of love, togetherness, closeness, happiness, and family. As I write this to you now, back at home in Vancouver, I'm beginning to cry. In a very, very good way!
Annemarie, you are so very gifted at what you do. Dave and I are so pleased with how you were with all of us yesterday. Dave has mentioned several times how grateful he was to have you know what to do to organize the details and make it all happen. You know the questions to ask to determine what it important to people and you have a way of happily making those things take place. You create the best possibilities for your couples and their families. We all talked about how much we loved your vibrance and energy last night and Abbie asked how I found you.
Thank you so much for your kind words in your email today. I thought of you when we passed the sign for Camano Island on the way home and hope you made it home safely. I wondered for you if following marrying people, are some set apart for you? We will always be grateful to you for making our day perfect.
Thank you, Annemarie. For everything.
AnnMarie is amazing. She pays attention to every detail and allows us full autonomy and participation. She is the most well prepared, organized and passionate officiant you can get.
She is lots of fun and made us feel relaxed as we knew she had everything covered!- Namita
I completely agree with my wife!! AnnMarie did such an awesome job. Along with the weather, the food and drink, the guests, and the music, AnnMarie was the perfect fit for our wedding. Titian
Oh my gosh, I cannot say enough WONDERFUL THINGS ABOUT ANNEMARIE! I found her on the Wedding Wire and saw all of her reviews and loved that she did Custom Ceremonies. I reached out to her and she returned my call, immediately speaking with her I loved the energy she exuded and knew that my fiancé Paul and I needed to set up a consultation with her. When we met Annemarie for our consultation I knew that she was exactly what we were looking for. My husband is Native American and it was very important to us to incorporate traditions from his culture. We were looking for a love filled spiritual ceremony and Annemarie created exactly that for us. What I love about Annemarie is her truly caring spirit, she was interested in getting to know us and creating a ceremony just for us. On the wedding day she was right on it, getting everyone in order, and I didn't have to worry about anything!! After our ceremony our friends and family kept telling us how much they loved her presence and what a great Officiant she was. If you want someone to help you create a touching, memorable, unique ceremony look no further than Annemarie. She truly is a gift!!! Worth every penny we spent and we are so THANKFUL. - The Youngs 7/1/17
Annemarie was simply the best and helped made our wedding day memorable to everyone in attendance. She is an animal enthusiast and put us at ease about including our four-legged family members in the ceremony. After the ceremony, I had several guest ask me, "Where did you find your officiant?! She was amazing!" You won't regret having Annemarie as a part of your special day!
Annemarie is WONDERFUL! From your first meeting with her you will see her warmth and passion for what she does. We wanted a very personal ceremony and she wrote a completely unique ceremony just for us, included many personal details, and even reached out to some of our family to include their words. She is very experience and will make you feel completely at ease every step of the way. She is the BEST officiant! Please work with her!
Simply stated, Annemarie did an outstanding job on our wedding ceremony! We received so many wonderful compliments on the ceremony that she wrote and performed for us! We had multiple people tell us our ceremony was the most beautiful, personal and genuine wedding ceremony they've ever attended! In fact, my Uncle (74 years old) said he's been to a lot of weddings over the years and ours was second to none! Annemarie truly exceeded our expectations and provided a wedding ceremony that we'll cherish forever! Annemarie, thank you so much for the time and effort you spent preparing our ceremony and also for presenting the ceremony in the most flawless and beautiful way possible! You're very talented and we're fortunate and thankful for your services!
Annemarie did an absolutely fabulous job creating our personalized wedding ceremony. She really took the time to get to know us as a couple and all of our guests commented on how beautiful, intimate, and personal our ceremony was. There was not a dry eye in the house! She made us feel comfortable every step of the way and provided great advice, while still honoring our ideas. We were so happy with all the work she did for us and could not recommend her more highly.
Annemarie really loves what she does, and her personality shines through! We actually had more feedback from our guests about how good our officiant and ceremony was than the food and party - when does that ever happen?! Annemarie made the ceremony fun but sweet, lighthearted but engaging. We couldn't have imagined a nicer ceremony, and she was so incredibly easy to work with.
Annemarie is worth every penny and you will not be disappointed in her officiating your wedding. She is professional and she truly cares about helping to tailor an extraordinary ceremony that will make your special day even more amazing!
Annemarie officiated our outdoor wedding on one of the hottest days in 2016. She is an expert in her field which was made evident when she kept us cool as cucumbers during our ceremony. The ceremony that she crafted for us was so beautiful and authentic. Annemarie’s process of developing our ceremony involved interviewing each of us separately and providing unique options for the final ceremony. To capture items that we may have missed about each other she reached out to our friends and family and included statements from them in the ceremony.
Her craftsmanship of the ceremony was so fun - she not only took us on a journey to capture events from the day we met to the day we got married, but also brought our guests along on for the journey as well when she delivered the ceremony. She radiated warmth and genuine thoughts throughout the entire ceremony. Thank you Annemarie for helping us capture our love for each other in a unique and fun way that was totally us! --- Lacee and Bryce, “BLT”
Annmarie was amazing! From the first time we met with her, we knew she was the right officiant for us. She completely understood our situation with our families' different religious beliefs and background. She is very responsive to emails and frequently responds the same day if not within the hour. We were very confident she would be able to handle any situation that came up. We could not have asked for a better officiant. Thank you so much for marrying us Annemarie!
Annemarie truly personalized the ceremony to highlight what was most important to my daughter and her fiance. She spent enough time with them before hand to create a truly personal, meaningful event that had everyone both laughing and crying. She is professional, flexible and I highly recommend her.
Annemarie, Thank you so very much for making our wedding day incredibly special. Though we only met you in person moments before the ceremony, you made us feel like we were old friends. You brought warmth and humor to our wedding with your special words and truly captured who we are as a couple. Scott and I will always be grateful for the amazing day you gave us. My advice to anyone getting married in the Seattle area is to put your trust in Annemarie. She will guide you through the process with an amazing attention to detail and is always there to respond quickly to any questions or concerns. I’m so happy we found Annemarie for our special day! - David and Scott
Don't hesitate to hire Annemarie! We were looking for a more non-traditional wedding ceremony as neither of us are very religious and Annemarie was absolutely amazing throughout the entire process. She does do religious ceremony's too and she is a very genuine, professional, and endearing person to work with. Her personality above all else should be the reason to hire her. We couldn't of asked for a better officiant and we were honored to have her as part of the next chapter of my wife and I's life.
I will warn you that her "homework" is extensive but trust me, it is well worth it. The ceremony she put together was a work of art and the effort she puts into crafting a ceremony that caters to you is outstanding.
I feel like when all was said and done we didn't just hire another vendor, we hired a friend! There are plenty of other officiant's out there but I can guarantee there are none quite like Annemarie!
Annemarie officiated our elopement and we couldn't have been more pleased. Not only did she make our small ceremony fun she made sure it was personal and memorable. She was incredibly easy to work with and made us feel comfortable and at ease. She even took amazing photos of us following the ceremony. We have only great things to say about our experience and we highly recommend Annemarie! She will make your day extra special!
Annemarie was very accommodating, thoughtful and supportive in helping us organize our elopement in a short period of time. She gave a meaningful ceremony tailored for us, made it simple and sweet just the way we asked, and helped us feel at ease. It was clear that Annemarie genuinely cared and loves what she does in bringing bring people together. I love Annemarie's positive, warm attitude as well as her professionalism and responsiveness.
Annemarie was GREAT- in getting her, we got SO much more than just an "officiant"...
Ever wanted a genie- or maybe a personal angel? She's kind of like that. She's IN to what you want, and THERE to help make it happen.
Timing? Practical details? Questions about paperwork? She's your genie. Make your request... and "poof"!
Talk to her- give her a call- and SEE if you don't notice a bit of magic.
She's a lift to your spirit- WIND to help make the miracle happen.
This isn't her business- it's her passion- and there's CLEARLY a difference.
If you are looking for the perfect officiant... Look no more. Annemarie is truly the most amazing officiant and so much more. She organized our whole ceremony for us, put everyone at ease and most importantly, made it fun!
The first officiant we found canceled one month prior due to a family emergency. With less than a month, we called Annemarie-it was the best decision we've made with our wedding planning! Within the first phone call we knew she was the one. She took all my stress away. She was so fun to talk to and completely took care of everything. She sent us a few packets to get to know us better and share our story. I don't know how she did it but she sent us the most perfect customized script for our ceremony. This woman is amazing! All of a sudden every bit of stress I had for the wedding was gone. We didn't have any idea what we wanted to say for our vows and all of a sudden we had these perfect, customized vows for our wedding.
We weren't able to have a rehearsal because of the holidays and family not being in town. Once again, Annemarie saved us! She showed up early the day of our wedding (after fighting crazy Seattle traffic with the Seahawks playing!) She told everyone where to be and what to do. Everything went even better than we ever imagined it could be. I'm someone who doesn't like to be in front of big crowds- yet Annemarie made it so relaxing and enjoyable. The guests were crying & laughing. She made our ceremony sentimental & sincere yet fun & happy! I don't think there was one person who didn't come up to me to tell me what an amazing officiant we had. Everyone ranted and raved about her for days after. She is so passionate and so gifted at what she does. We are so incredibly thankful we chose Annemarie to be a huge part of our big day. My grandmother said "In all my years, I've never been to such an enjoyable and perfect wedding ceremony. It was absolutely beautiful!" And she was so right.
Annemarie was the first and only officiant we spoke with for our wedding. It was clear from the moment we met her that she was exactly what we were looking for in an officiant--warm, engaging, and funny. Through a lengthy questionnaire she got to know us individually and as a couple, and then created a beautiful, hyper-personalized ceremony that showcased our relationship. She had several excellent suggestions for ceremony elements, such as an oathing stone and travel box, and we loved having the opportunity to diverge from a traditional wedding structure. We received the first draft of the ceremony in July for our November wedding, which gave us plenty of time to think through it and make tweaks (all pretty minor, as she pretty much hit the nail on the head with the first draft).
On our wedding day she arrived well ahead of time and made sure everything was running on time, the venue had everything set up, and our wedding party knew the plan and was ready to go. Our guests loved her and we continue to receive compliments on our ceremony, and I know we'll continue to treasure her words for years to come!
