Our wedding was on 9/14/13 at Jackson Gore Inn and it was made perfect by Annie as our officiant. Annie took the time to meet with us in person, and talked with us via email and phone to help us prepare for our ceremony. Annie not only gave us good advice and resourses to use but she provided us support by giving words of encouragement throughout the whole planning process! Annie also went above and beyond to help us find audio equipment needed for our ceremony in just a few days notice! The ceremony was everything we imagined it to be and we have Annie to thank for it. We recieved many compliments from our guests and wedding party about Annie's charming personality and the overall presenation of our ceremony! I hope some day down the road many years from now my husband and I will renew our vows and Annie will be the one to officiate! We highly recommend Annie for your future wedding!
Annie was a pleasure to work with. She was warm and friendly and thorough in execution. She put me at ease in the days leading up to my wedding and during our rehearsal, she knew how to take charge and direct everyone in the party. She directed our ceremony seamlessly and came prepared - while I was tearing up in front of my family and friends, she already had a tissue ready for me!
We couldn't have chosen a better officiant for our Vermont wedding! From beginning to end, Annie was there to assist with all of our needs. Not only did she provide the most personalized and perfect ceremony, but she was also always available to assist with all aspects of the wedding day. Her passion shows in her work, we would highly recommend her for any Vermont wedding!
Annie was absolutely wonderful to work with for our September, 2014 wedding! She took the time to meet with us in person and talk over the phone as we planned out our ceremony. Annie was especially helpful in providing us with many options and just the right amount of guidance, and our ceremony ended up being exactly what we wanted.
Annie did such a great job. She had every answer for all of our questions, and we had tons, like every couple getting married there are so many details that we didn't even think of. From guiding us through the whole process, to helping choose readings to the little things just before the ceremony. She made it completely stress free!
Thanks to Annie our day was all about us and not the stress!
It was tough planning a wedding all the way from the west coast, but Annie made it easy by mailing us a packet containing instructions, vows, poems, and a selection of common rituals that people do (like passing a ring around or pouring some wine in some wine). She is very opinionated about traditions and what works best for ceremonies, which was mostly nice because we had no idea what we were doing.
The wedding was beautiful, the ceremony perfect, and she really couldn't have made it any easier!
Thank you for conducting such a beautiful ceremony on September 6th!. Your willingness to learn what you didn't know about my religion and the ceremony information that you provided made our handfasting exactly what we envisioned.
Working with Annie was amazing! Our first introduction to her was over the phone. She is so warm and puts you at ease immediately. She asked many questions to learn as much as she could about my husband and I. Upon meeting her for the first time, she walked us through a typical ceremony. She was open to all of our ideas and had such great suggestions. Having performed so many weddings, she had so many helpful pieces of advice (things I NEVER would have thought of). We couldn't have planned such a special and intimate ceremony without her. All our guests raved about what a wonderful ceremony we had and we owe it all to Annie! I can't recommend her strongly enough!!
Annie was a pleasure to work with. We were married outside on a cold February afternoon and she was fantastic. We are so grateful to Annie for giving us the type of ceremony we wanted and for standing out in the cold with us.
I contacted Annie just months before my wedding. She was extremely kind and helpful. Upon our first conversation I could definitely tell she knew the business well. She paid great attention to detail and made sure every part of the ceremony was covered. She was also a great help the day of the wedding with nerves and making sure everything and everyone was where it needed to be. Couldn't have asked for a more perfect officiant for our perfect day.
Annie is absolutely wonderful! We felt so comfortable with her from the very first meeting and knew she'd be able to give us the unique, personal wedding ceremony we were looking for! She has wonderful ideas and goes above & beyond to provide advice on anything from vendors to design! My husband and I were looking for something a bit unique but still in keeping with a traditional ceremony...so with personal vows and a unity ceremony complete with drinking Heady Topper to reflect our love of IPA's, we nailed it...thanks to Annie! She made our ceremony truly represent us...she worked so well with our other vendors and kept in great communication with our wedding coordinator. We couldn't be happier with Annie and our guests have been asking for copies of her ceremony for them to reflect upon! :) THANK YOU ANNIE!
Annie is by far the most wonderful officiant! From the moment we first spoke with Annie on the phone we knew she would be the right person to marry us. We really didn't want just any joe off the street to officiate our ceremony, so we were a little nervous at first. Annie is so warm and caring! You feel like you have known her for years immediately. We instantly felt comfortable! Annie is a wealth of knowledge, and she had tons of tips and helpful pieces of info for us. She took a lot of research and guess work off our plates!
Annie made sure that our ceremony was everything we hoped for and much more! It was absolutely a day to remember, and if you are getting married anywhere near VT Annie is the BEST choice!!! I truly can't say enough wonderful things about her!
Annie was such a pleasure to work with. From the moment we first we her, we both knew she would be great for our wedding ceremony. She helped us plan everything to feel like it was "our" ceremony and is very knowledgeable. Then she surpassed our expectations that weekend. She was very organized and in charge at the ceremony (especially with the groomsmen) and then the wedding day she was fantastic! Our ceremony was so special and meaningful which was all because of Annie!
Planning a wedding ceremony could not have been a more enjoyable experience than the one my wife and I had planning our ceremony with Annie. We found her to be completely organized, flexible with content, professional in approach and a genuine pleasure to work with. Despite not knowing Annie for many years as some might with their local ministers/spiritual guides Annie spent time with us to help ensure our ceremony was not only unique to us but also a ceremony which was special to us. On the day of our ceremony weather decided to make an appearance pushing us from Plan A to Plan B and then Plan C. Through these changes Annie was an absolute STAR ensuring the ceremony ran smoothly partly because the back-up plans were all in place and partly because of her great organization and clear experience.
We highly recommend having Annie officiate your wedding day.
The minute my husband and I sat down with Annie, we knew she was the perfect fit to marry us. We instantly felt comfortable with Annie. Her wealth of experience was extremely helpful to us during the planning of our ceremony as we had no idea where to start or what we wanted. Annie is warm and kind. Her words were so genuine at our wedding and she truly cared about making our ceremony very special for us. We have already recommended her to another family member who is getting married next year and would not hesitate to recommend her to any couple looking for a superb wedding officiant. Thank you, Annie, for making our day magical! ~ Leslie and Chris Sexton ~ Married September 1, 2012 ~ East Burke, Vermont
Annie was wonderful to work with! From our very first phone call, she was so friendly and warm, and so organized! She is a professional, and her experience will immediately put you at ease. Not a religious couple, we wanted our ceremony to be a reflection of our love for one another, and our love for our family and friends. Annie had a binder full of amazing readings and ideas on how to make our ceremony truly unique and relevant to us as a couple, without touching on religion at all. She also was wonderful on the weekend, from the rehearsal to the actual day, everything ran smoothly and perfectly.
To us, the ceremony was the most important part of our wedding, and we can truly say that it was PERFECT. We highly recommend Annie!
Annie was so great! She was so nice and helpful, and made the process of figuring out the ceremony so easy. My husband and I live in MA and were having a hard time finding time to go to VT to talk with Annie in person. She worked with us over the phone on several occasions to make sure that the ceremony was going to be just what we wanted. She gave us lots of advice on how to make the ceremony personal to us by adding readings and symbolic ceremonies, and the wedding turned out so amazing because of it!!!
Planning from a distance can be difficult, but when it came to the ceremony and rehearsal, Annie really helped us to have one less thing to worry about. We chatted with her via phone and email and didn't meet until the rehearsal. There, she was incredibly organized and effortlessly wrangled-in the wedding party (a difficult task!), making sure everyone knew what they were supposed to be doing and when. She really took charge and even came up with a plan "B" in the case of inclimate weather. We really appreciated her know-how and positive attitude!
My husband and I wanted a fully custom wedding ceremony, so we were able to write the entire thing ourselves at no extra charge (the other officiants we looked at charged extra for custom pieces) so we really appreciated Annie helping us to express ourselves!
My husband and I live in Maryland and planned our big day for a small town in Vermont. Annie was a great help in planning the ceremony. She was able to give us a wide range of ideas,including music, readings, and structure. We did most of the planning over the phone and only met with Annie once before the wedding rehearsal, but the wedding was perfect. Annie was able to give my husband and I the wedding of our dreams from miles away. We couldn't have asked for a better person to perform our ceremony.
Annie was the first officiant we contacted and we knew right away she was the one for us. We are an older (50ish) couple and wanted a small, personal, wedding in Vermont. She guided us through the whole process seamlessly. She provided a lot of options for us and was open to our ideas in how to make this personal and perfect for us. She helped us come up with a way to include our respective children in a very personal family unity candle lighting ceremony. It was the perfect day thanks to Annie!
