My (now) husband and I were nervous about finding an officiant that would be able to capture our spiritual energy and our love story to make our ceremony feel truly unique and meaningful to us. We were so lucky to be introduced to Ann! After our first phone conversation, which ended up lasting an hour because the three of us just could not stop chatting, we knew that we had found someone truly special. Ann is focused on making the ceremony so personalized, and truly wanted to get to know us. We did not feel like just another random couple getting married by someone we had just met. We filled out a short questionnaire and submitted our responses separately to her so she could include some of our own words in the ceremony. It was so sweet hearing what my husband thought of our love through Ann. She was thoughtful, genuine, detail oriented, and helped us write our own vows. When we finally met in person a few weeks before the big day, my husband, Ann and I felt such an immediate connection! By the end of our meeting we were hugging and laughing. On our big day, Ann had such a calming, sweet, loving spirit that helped us truly embrace the beautiful moments of our ceremony. We feel SO lucky to have found Ann- she gave us the ceremony of our dreams!
I can not tell you how much I loved meeting you and Carl and being part of the wedding. We connected on so many levels and I knew after meeting you that I was truly following my calling as a wedding minister. The meeting was very special to me, as well as you and Carl. I can not express my joy for our friendship.
Had a fabulous experience! Ann was warm, kind and helped mark our day perfect! Couldn’t do it without her!
It was my pleasure to be part of your wedding. I loved having it on your large front porch. Your children were so happy !
Ann did an amazing job with our ceremony! She was able to tailor the ceremony for us to make it very personalized and meaningful. I would highly recommend her services.
I loved the Barn at Blueberry Hill at Elkin, NC. You planned everything well and the wedding went very smooth. The tree planting Unity ceremony is one of my favorites. Thank you for asking me to be part of your wedding.
Ann, Did an amazing job with our wedding! She was helpful and attentive. She took care of marriage certificate after the wedding. Make sure that we knew where everybody should be placed for a wonderful evening. SHE TRULY BLESSED US INTO MANY YEARS TO COME. If you are looking for someone amazing you have found her!
I enjoyed being part of your ceremony. The Sarah P. Duke Gardens was a beautiful venue. Your intentions for no rain worked well. You have very nice friends and family too.
Ann made sure our special day was perfect! Can't thank her enough!
You and Don were such a wonderful couple to work with. I loved that your two sons gave you away. What a special occasion to have your children and grandchildren present.
Ann was so easy to work with and so personable. She has a certain warmth about her that makes you feel so special from the start. The ceremony she selected for us was exactly what we wanted.
I really enjoyed officiating your wedding. It was fun having the wedding at the Pour House- where you have memories. You both were so happy and excited to be married. I feel honored to be part of your wedding.
Ann is so personable and comforting and really makes you feel like you've known her for years! She listened to our vision for our ceremony and she did a great job incorporating our personalities and stories in a meaningful way. She delivered a beautifully written ceremony for us and we were so happy she was there for our big moment!
Your wedding was gorgeous. I was very happy to officiate it. You were a wonderful couple to work with and very easy to communicate. I feel you will have a long and happy marriage.
Ann made our special day AMAZING! She made our wedding ceremony personal and everybody loved it. She was even willing to accommodate some special requests we had. I could not imagine our special day without her.
I was more than happy to work with you and make it special for all members of the family. You both are surrounded by friends and family that love you. The home wedding looked like a venue. You did an exceptional job. Your mother's cake was gorgeous.
My husband and I had the pleasure of having Ann officiate our wedding in March. We lived further away at the time of booking Ann so couldn't meet her in person until our rehearsal. She was flexible by letting us "meet her" for an initial consultation prior to booking of FaceTime. She has a big, warm personality that was evident to see in the short amount of time we spoke. Since we did not have any ties with a church, nor are religious, we did not want it to show we hired someone on a whim for us to exchange our vows. Ann made sure that was not going to be the case. She provided us with questions to answer and allowed us to be as creative as we wanted, and even called to receive clarification on stories we provided about our relationship so she could translate those during the ceremony. We wanted something short, simple, and sweet and that is what she provided. We had people asking us after the ceremony how long we knew Ann, and they were shocked it was only for a few months prior to our wedding (they thought we had known her for years!). Book Ann for your ceremony!
I loved everything about your wedding. The dress, venue and all the fun bridesmaids and groomsmen. You are such a great couple to work with. I was very happy to officiate your wedding. Love the video too!
Ms. Ann was affirming in our union. She helped me surprise my life partner with an unforgettable ceremony, that incorporated words that were true to our hearts: singly and collectively. Her smile is inviting and calming.
It was my honor to marry you. I thought the surprise was well done. I feel you women will have a long and happy marriage. It is obvious how much you care for each other.
Look no further for your wedding oficiant! Ann was easy to communicate, very responsive, professional and Knowledgeable. My husband and I contacted her 5 days before the wedding and she even cancelled a doctors appointment she had to be able to officiate our wedding. At the time of the ceremony, she explained us all the steps, from the legal ones to the ceremony per se, which was beautiful; she had the perfect words for us. We can’t be happier of have had her in our special day.
It was a pleasure to officiate your wedding Sofia. You have a wonderful group of family and friends. I am so happy I was able to be part of your special day.
I enjoyed meeting and working with Ann! You can tell that she is passionate about what she does and loves getting to know her couples!
Thank you for your kind words. You are such a talented photographer, I will definitely refer you to my wedding couples.
Ann was truly amazing! She was easy to talk to and I felt like she really understood us and listened to what we wanted. When she sent us the vows they were absolutely perfect and we didn't make any changes. We were both shocked that she got it so perfectly just from our few conversations.
I thought including the three children in the ceremony made it special. I loved marrying you outside under the trees. You picked a perfect spot. You were a joy to work with.
I contacted Ms. Ann a few weeks ago to discuss the idea of her being the officiant at our wedding ceremony. I knew immediately that she was the perfect person to help us! She was very personable, lively, and kind on the phone. Not only was she excited about our idea of the Engagement Party turned Surprise Wedding...but she helped us plan it by giving us advice as to what would be the best way to do it. We had the wedding yesterday and it was more beautiful and fun than we even imagined it. After the ceremony, several of our friends and family members commented on what an amazing job Ms. Ann did during our ceremony. I cannot thank her enough for helping us with our special day. If you are looking for an officiant...look no further - she is amazing!
This was my first surprise wedding! You really know how to keep a secret. The expression on everyone's faces when they found out it was a wedding rinsed of an engagement party was priceless. It was a hoot performing the ceremony in a brewery! I am so glad you asked me to officiate your wedding.
Loved Mrs. Ann! She was so sweet and professional! We could have picked a better person to marry us. She was easy to work with and made us feel extremely comfortable. She even stayed for a few minutes after all the documents were signed to snap a photo, talk to our parents and then hug us good bye. It was just the sweetest. I actually loved the fact a woman married us and if your even thinking about that, don’t second guess it! It’s fine!!! Ann is amazing!!! I loved the simple ceremony too!
I really enjoyed your wedding. Everyone was very relaxed, even the groom was joking around, what fun! I am so glad I was part of your special day.
Ann was absolutely the best selection for our wedding. From the moment we met she clicked! She helped us through everything. Her words during the ceremony are so touching. She will feel more like a family member than an officiant at your wedding! I highly recommend her for your special day!
You and Summer were such a fun couple. It was my honor to marry you. I could tell at the rehearsal and wedding that you are surrounded by people that love you. What a testimony to the life you lead!
Ann was amazing to work with. She crafted a beautiful secular ceremony with vows that were special to both my husband and myself. We are so happy that Ann officiated our wedding.
It was a lovely wedding. The children in the ceremony did a great job. Christina, you were a beautiful bride.
She truly is amazing and gets to know the couple very well. The ceremony was beautiful and we wouldn’t have waned it any other way.
It was a true joy working with you. The voes you wrote to each other were so heartfelt, that it was difficult for me to keep from crying myself. Most of the guests felt the same way. What a special love you have for each other.
Ann was awesome every step of the way! She was very helpful in making our special day even better than I could’ve imagined! Especially when I had to change our venue just TWO days before the ceremony, she called me and helped calm me down and offered many suggestions of others locations!
Thank you Ann!
The venue you choose was perfect. I loved the outdoor setting and you were wonderful to work with. I am so happy for your new life.
Ann was an absolute joy to work with and have officiate our wedding day. She was very responsive to all of our messages and very attentive to what we wanted in our ceremony. We could not have picked a better officiant!!
You were a delightful couple. It was my pleasure to be part of your ceremony, The setting was beautiful. Your family and friends were great.
I'm just grateful for you being so flexible and able to help on short notice
The venue was perfect even if you had to make a last minute change to be under the tent. You handled it well and it was flawless. The "tying the knot" ceremony was a fun addition.
We were married by Ann about a week ago and I can't say enough good things! She was easy to work with, needed little guidance from us and kept the ceremony special and captivating. Thank you Ann!
The morning ceremony was perfect. All the children were such a special edition. I thought it was lovely especially to include everyone in the ceremony. What a delight!
Ann was great for our ceremony. We met prior and she was very flexible with anything we needed, and any location. I am so glad we were able to come together for our special day!
Tara and you were very easy to work with. Mason seemed to enjoy himself being part of the sand ceremony. It is a special ceremony to include children in it. The setting was fabulous and it was a beautiful day for a wedding.
We are so thankful that we were able to have Ann officiate our wedding. She took the time to get to know each of us and listened to what we wanted and incorporated that into her ceremony. Every time we spoke to her she was so excited and couldn't wait until the wedding day! We love her!!
You and Vickie are truly a special couple. I loved incorporating the "5 Love Languages" in the ceremony. Having all 3 children part of the sand ceremony was very special. Thank you for allowing me to be part of this day for you.
Ann was super flexible to meet our last minute service request. She did a great job of doing exactly what we asked for, but also went above and beyond without making us feel overwhelmed.
I enjoyed being part of your wedding. With your circumstances and the need for a wedding within a few days- I am glad it all worked out before your husband had to leave.
