Reverend Annie Made Our Day
Reverend Annie officiated our last minute Hamptons elopement in September 2020. Anxious to get our plans sorted, Annie put us instantly at ease. She was quick to respond, professional and accommodating. We had an introduction call to acquaint ourselves and another conversation to review the expectations of our ceremony. Annie listened! She struck a beautiful balance between religion, spirituality, and personalized stories / references - all of which we discussed wanting. She was the star of the show, given it was just us and her present meaning she made the ceremony so special in honoring our union. We were so thrilled, words cannot express, and would recommend Reverend Annie for your occasion.Sent on 09/15/2020

Hire this Gem!
My husband I found Reverend Annie by way of our venue coordinator and we are so glad we found her. She was the picture of professionalism throughout the entire process of leading up to our ceremony and stayed flexible with us when our wedding plans got pushed and changed a few times due to COVID-19.
We both grew up going to Episcopal churches and while we aren’t overly religious now, it was important for us to have touches of the traditional service woven into one that felt more personal to us. Reverend Annie got to know us through a detailed questionnaire and a Zoom meeting, and the script she wrote in return was absolutely beautiful. And struck the exact balance of what we were looking for. She’s such a gifted writer. She made the most excellent recommendation on a reading that captured how love is like the ocean, and it will definitely be framed on our wall for years to come. She was prompt on the day of wedding and handled our hybrid of in-person plus virtual attendance with grace. (We had 25 guests present on the beach and 100 on zoom!)
We could not recommend Reverend Annie more. If you have the opportunity to hire her as your officiant, don’t hesitate. She has such a wonderful energy and a clear love for love. We will always look back fondly watching the videos of our beautiful ceremony.Sent on 09/03/2020

An unforgettable, precious moment
The first thing you notice about Reverend Annie Block Pearl is her warmth. With a beautiful smile and empathetic gaze, you are in the presence of wisdom. This is why she presided over our wedding.
We chose to marry on a beach, and hilariously, it turned out to be an incredibly windy day, which presented us with a bit of an obstacle. Her presence of mind helped us figure a way around it and everything continued as planned. That is something you can’t put a price on.
Attentive to our requests, she helped create an intimate, unique, and truly memorable ceremony. Her well-chosen words were beautiful. Annie creates an atmosphere where one feels totally seen, individually and as a couple; everything radiates joy.
We are deeply grateful to her.Sent on 05/17/2020

Reverend Annie Block Pearl was a true joy to work with and she met all of our expectations. She took time to get to know us as couple and individuals, even though we live far away, and had to schedule video calls on the weekends. We kept our ceremony simple, but had some unusual elements which Annie implemented seamlessly. She even provided a draft of the script prior to the ceremony as it helped me calm my nerves.Sent on 01/10/2020
During the ceremony she spoke clearly and confidently, but she truly let us shine! Overall, we had a wonderful experience, and would highly recommend Annie to our friends.
Reverend Annie Block Pearl's reply:Thank you so much for your kind words. It was an honor and privilege to officiate for you!

Annie Block Pearl (ABP!) was terrific!
Planning a wedding was all about choices. Choices to go cheap on this and spend more on that. Ten different types of flower options, groomsmen tie colors, napkin embroidery, DJ’s, limo’s, after parties, AH. It can be a lot.
We met with several officiants before Annie Block Pearl, and almost right away, we knew she was the one for us. She was personal and professional. ABP got to know us well, and I felt that we created a real bond. She was flexible and yet well prepared. Her ceremony was both relaxed and yet had gravitas.
It was the easiest choice we had to make, thanks Annie B!Sent on 06/22/2019

Well Executed, Personalized, and Simple Ceremony
My husband and I were looking for a very low key, simple ceremony for us to do for our elopement and Annie was very accommodating to the bare bones nature of what we wanted. She was very kind and wrote some beautiful words for our ceremony that she let us have a copy of. She was also kind enough to do our ceremony on a holiday. Would absolutely recommend.Sent on 01/03/2019

Annie created the most magnificent ceremony for my husband and I. It was personal, including tidbits of our life together, and included various readings we picked out. Annie was super flexible and really honoured our wishes - we felt like we were all creating something together. On the day of our wedding, Annie was calm, kind and fully present -- she really is the embodiement of light and love.
My wish for any couple is that they have a service as beautiful and heartfelt as ours, and I know that if Annie is involved, they will experience nothing short of amazing!!!Sent on 08/02/2018

What a beautiful, personalized wedding ceremony, we are so happy we found Reverend Annie. She accommodated our request to get married at the beach at sunset, and her professionalism and the words she spoke were outstanding. We highly recommend Rev Annie.Sent on 10/26/2017

Annie was the perfect officiant for our wedding. She seemed to fit in seamlessly with the desires we had for our ceremony. We were incredibly indecisive and Annie didn’t sweat it at all, yet gently guided us when we were getting off track. I think the most important thing to know about Annie, is that when we were at the alter, her presence was calm, assuring and holding, and looking back on the ceremony that’s exactly what we needed when were in the special yet vulnerable place. Thank you Annie! We will remember our ceremony forever!! ❤️Sent on 11/04/2017

Annie was wonderful!
Annie married my husband and I in a small backyard ceremony after we were forced to cancel our wedding due to covid. She was highly professional and wrote the most beautiful ceremony. She even took time to research some cultural components we wanted to include. We highly recommend her! Thank you Annie!Sent on 08/09/2020

You don't need to look any further. Rev Annie is The One! Rev Annie knows what she's doing & brings MAGIC to your ceremony. My husband & I searched extensively for the perfect Officiant for our garden wedding in Bridgehampton, NY. We met with several Officiants and the first time I spoke with Rev Annie, I knew instantly that our search was over. We live in LA but flew back east for our wedding, so we met over the phone a few times & Rev Annie was very accommodating with the time zone difference as she is very professional in how she conducts her business. We also met with her prior to the ceremony once we were back in NY for the wedding. We met at her gorgeous home the day before our wedding & even meditated with her outside! She is an incredible human being - a loving, compassionate, soul-guided spirit who is spiritually connected & fully committed to guiding you & your partner towards the ceremony of your dreams. She patiently worked with us to create an intimate & meaningful ceremony - far exceeding our expectations.Sent on 03/30/2015
I would also like to mention that Rev Annie has a beautiful presence. She looked stunning in her robes & is a beautiful woman inside & out. She radiated a gorgeous glow & added to the beauty of the ceremony.
Rev Annie is a gifted speaker, listener, psychotherpist & holistic healer. If interested, she offeres incredible services in addition to her Officant role. We are forever grateful for the love, support, compassion & respect she shared with us. Our wedding ceremony stood out as the most significant & beautiful experience my husband & I have ever shared together. Thank you from the bottom of our married hearts, Rev Annie!

Our wedding ceremony was simply BEAUTIFUL. Reverend Annie was our wedding officiant in September 2011 at a venue in Brooklyn, NY.Sent on 03/24/2015
Reverend Annie's love, support, compassion and understanding made of this union our biggest blessing.
The ceremony was perfect, we wanted to have a short non religious event; all we had to do was explain to Reverend Annie exactly what we wanted and she fulfilled all of our expectations, giving us our most important gift: Our dream wedding ceremony fulfilled with all her magic.
Today, Reverend's Annies blessings have multiplied within our lives, our family has grown and we now have a 20 month old baby boy "Joaquin" and expecting our baby girl Violeta for the end of May.
Thank you Reverend Annie for all you have done for our family. You have completely changed our lives with your presence, love, and blessings.
