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.
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.
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.
Ann was wonderful and very pleasant. We appreciate her professionalism and guidance on our big day.
Thank you for your kind words.
Ann was great she explained step by step on how things happen when using a officiant, she was the only one that did that. I called 3 others and she was the only one that showed she cared!
Thank you Jennifer. I really enjoyed officiating your wedding and meeting your wonderful family and friends.
It was fate that we met Ann at the LGBTQ Wedding Expo in Raleigh; my partner and I were well into our wedding planning but attended the expo to show support for the community. Ann was one of the last booths we passed and she greeted us with “do you have an officiant for your wedding?”, well, we actually did not at that time. We hit it off with Ann immediately, she is friendly, caring and fun to talk to. During the weeks leading up to wedding, Ann was diligent in working with us on a ceremony which expressed our devotion and commitment to each other. We were happy to have her officiate over this important moment of our lives and will always be thankful for her passion and expertise.
It was my honor to marry two wonderful women who have been committed to each other for so many years. I will cherish the wedding and wish to thank you for allowing me to be part of it.
She did very well at wording our vows w/ what little info. we provided.
Your wedding was beautiful at Doyle's Vineyard. The setting was perfect. I am happy that I was able to be part of the special day.
Ann was our officiant for our Mad Dash wedding at the Mims house, which is a pop-up wedding concept that books your vendors for you. So having only met Ann moments before our ceremony, I was very impressed with her efficiency and professionalism. She knew exactly what to do and where to have the bridal party ststioned even though it was a very chaotic moment. During the ceremony, She spoke very thoughtful and meaningful words that matched with the spiritual/non-religious aspect that we wanted. We wrote our own vows and she fit these seamlessly into the rest of the ceremony. She also was very kind to work with our pup in asking him to bring up the rings!
It was a very happy occasion. Your puppy was very enthusiastic and brought a little more joy to the ceremony. I enjoyed being part of your event.
And has been a friend of the family for some time now and it was a joy to be able to have her be a part of our wedding. It was great that she was able to accommodate our wishes and a very small and intimate venue. Wheel of the vows that she had written for us because they really encapsulated our love. She is a wonderful woman and would be a great addition to anyone's wedding.
I was very happy to be part of you and Matt's wedding. It was a challenge not to shed a tear when I saw Matt shed one. It was a beautiful setting and the party afterward was great. Happy to do a wedding for people I know.
We had less than 2 weeks to plan our elopement in an area we knew little about. Ann responded quickly to our initial inquiry and was quick to speak with us about the ceremony. In a short amount of time she was able to put together a ceremony that was just right for us, and even helped us find a perfect setting! We loved Ann the moment we met her! Professional, caring, warm, personable, real, and invested in making our day exactly what we wanted it to be--special! We can't recommend her enough!
It was my pleasure to marry you and Randy. The Mayton Inn was lovely and New Year's Eve was definitely a day to remember. I enjoyed being part of your ceremony.
EXCELLENT!!! YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED
I enjoyed meeting your wonderful family and officiating your wedding. I wish you and Richard all the best in Bermuda.
Ann is incredible! She spent time getting to know us, both individually and as a couple, and in doing so, incorporated what she learned to create a beautiful and unique ceremony with personalized, heartfelt, and meaningful vows. Ann is a genuine, warm, and calming person who is strives to make sure you have all you need.
It was a joy officiating your wedding. Who knew when we first met at a networking event, I would end up being part of your wedding. We were meant to meet that night. I also enjoyed having you and your daughter come to a meditation before the wedding. I appreciate you including me on your special day.
