Best Officiant!Reviewed on 11/06/2012 Lauren E
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!
My Husband and I were married in August 2015 at the most beautiful place and had the most beautiful ceremony thanks to Annie. She was absolutely wonderful from the moment I spoke with her on the phone to the day she married us. She is so organized and knows what she is doing! Our wedding planning process was that much easier because of her. Highly recommend her, you will not regret it!!
The PERFECT ParsonReviewed on 3/07/2015 Sarah M
My husband and I were planning our dream winter Vermont Wedding from NJ over the last 18 months. I am Jewish and my Husband Episcopalian so we were looking for an Officiant that could include both traditions but, most importantly, a ceremony as unique as our relationship. From the first meeting with Annie it was clear that she was the one to make our dream wedding come true. She made the whole experience so easy and enjoyable. Helped us choose readings that suited us and created a flow that was perfect for us. She wanted to know every detail of our day so that she could enhance the overall experience, and she did. We spoke several times and there was always a clear process. But above all, Annie is one of the most kind and genuine people we have ever met. Our entire Wedding party just loved her. She is gentle, but assertive making our rehearsal a beautiful part of the entire experience. We got married on January 31, 2015 at Stowe Mountain Lodge, Stowe VT. We feel like our ceremony was so perfectly us, with lots of laughs and just the right amount of tears. Thank you, Annie for everything. You really MADE the Wedding for us and we will visit the next time we are in VT. Love, Sarah & Tom
Annie was simply the best to work with. It's apparent that she loves her work and truly cares about all of the couples she works with. She was thorough from day one. She made time to meet with us four months before the wedding when we were visiting Vermont for wedding planning. She helped us create vows for our ceremony that were exactly what we wanted. She was also there on the day of our rehearsal to make sure that we and everyone involved felt comfortable with the flow of the ceremony. Not to mention, Annie is just a fantastic person!
Annie was so well versed in the process but also very interested in personal details of our ceremony. She provided us peace of mind throughout preparation meetings and was great during the ceremony. We would recommend Annie to any couple of any denomination or non religious.
Annie was terrific! Though she is based in Vermont and our wedding was in upstate New York, she was willing to take on our wedding. She was always available via phone or email, and she was very much a pleasure to meet with as we planned the big day. When it came time to meeting in person, she was more than accommodating, helping coordinate a location to meet that was not too cumbersome for us to get to. She has a great personality, matched with experience. She has a wonderful resources ready to choose from to help you plan a structured, yet incredibly personal, ceremony. Beyond her resources in readings, unity ceremony options, and vows, she will accommodate readings/speeches that you bring to the table. We thoroughly recommend Annie to anyone looking for a supportive, personable, and professional officiant.
Picking an officiant was something my now husband and I were very nervous to do. We weren't sure exactly what we wanted in a ceremony and didn't know how to go about finding out. Working with Annie was fantastic. She is extremely professional and knowledgeable and her wealth of experience really put us at ease. Even though we planned our wedding from far away, we were able to have a number of calls with Annie to work through the process as she was very easy to get in touch with. When it came time for the rehearsal, Annie had everyone in place and understanding their roles very quickly. As for the actual ceremony, it was perfect and we got so many compliments from our guests on our amazing officiant!
Annie was great! She was so helpful during the planning phase, and amazing on our wedding day! She made us feel great about our ceremony, and we even had a number of guests come up to us to comment on how great she was. Couldn't recommend her enough!!
We planned a destination wedding in Stowe, Vermont and Annie was an integral part of ensuring that our day went smoothly despite the long-distance planning. She was kind and knowledgeable from the beginning, provided guidance and recommendations, and also ensured that our personalities shone through in the ceremony. She was flexible and able to work with us over the phone to plan everything and helped drive a perfect program both during the rehearsal and the actual day. We loved working with her and highly recommend that you hire her for your wedding. Thanks Annie!
Annie was an integral part of our ceremony and overall wedding process. Upon first meeting her she was so friendly and inviting and this continued throughout the entire process. Annie made our ceremony very personal and was able to incorporate whatever we wanted. She also made suggestions on ways we could prepare for the day and calm our nerves. Annie is amazing and knows what she is doing- I can't imagine our day without her being apart of it!
Thank you to Annie for officiating the most beautiful ceremony. We chose to have Annie officiate our June wedding in the Adirondacks because of her kind, sensitive and warm personality when we spoke to her in our first meeting. Annie worked closely with us to write the most beautiful ceremony that incorporated our family traditions, such as what our wedding venue meant for our family, and lovely readings. Our wedding was executed flawlessly thanks to Annie keeping everyone on point. It was the most magical part of my life to get to say I do in such a beautiful way.
We hired Annie to be our officiant for our 5/20/17 wedding at the Mad River Barn and she did a fantastic job! Leading up to our day, Annie met with us at her home in VT and had a wide array of ceremony options for us to choose from, allowing us to perfectly customize the day to meet our vision. She was very flexible in accommodating our requests. During the ceremony rehearsal, Annie made sure that all guests were aware of how the ceremony would progress and was great at leading the wedding party to ensure that all details were covered. She was the right balance between professionalism and warm. Our actual ceremony went very smooth and we have had many wedding guests comment to us that Annie did a phenomenal job officiating our wedding. I would highly recommend Annie to anyone!
Annie was excellent! From our first phone call with her, we knew we had the right person! She gave us great feedback and advice not only for the ceremony but also for dealing with outside pressures and how best to enjoy our day. She met with us twice and answer more than a few emails and phone calls! She printed out our vows and readings to ensure everything was just right and even acted as a soundboard when we had writer's block. Because of possible rain, for the rehearsal she made sure everyone knew the outside and inside plans. The ceremony has great and a large part of that is due to Annie's dedication. I doubt you could do better than having Annie on your side throughout the entire process!!:)
Annie was extremely helpful when my husband and I were planning our ceremony. From our first phone call with her, we knew we were in good hands. She is warm, encouraging, and professional. We met with her to discuss our ceremony structure and she talked us through a bunch of different readings and symbolic ceremonies we could use. She did not push anything on us, but helped us weigh the pros and cons of different approaches. She encouraged us to make the ceremony personal, which was the best advice. All of our guests couldn't stop talking about how moving our ceremony was, and I can't believe how many people were moved to tears! Annie was also extremely efficient during the rehearsal - she really knows her stuff and helped keep everything running smoothly. Thanks, Annie!
We were so fortunate to have met Annie. Our florist, event planner & photographer all highly recommended Annie Alexander-Kramer as an officiant. It was important for us to get married in Vermont and also equally important for us to find someone with our same values to be the officiant at our wedding. We didn't want someone that was stuffy or pretentious – but someone with character that was modern, upbeat and enthusiastic. Through the processes of planning our wedding we really enjoyed getting to know Annie. Annie met with us multiple times over the phone and in person to help create a very special wedding. She tirelessly helped us select the perfect readings and music selections for our special day. Annie was such a professional and provided so much support on the actual wedding day. Annie seamlessly worked with the hotel, event planner, musicians and photographer on the wedding day and was able to help us with any last minute preparations that were needed. As for the ceremony – Annie knocked it out of the park – she delivered a truly memorable ceremony with wonderful readings. Annie has a wonderful presence and amazing speaking voice. Our guests could not stop talking about what a wonderful ceremony it was. Most of that was directly attributed to all the time Annie spent getting to know us and helping to recommend readings that reflected our character. We could not have been happier Annie.
Annie is wonderful! She worked with us to create a memorable ceremony. We had so many questions about what to say and how to say it, how to write personal vows, and Annie helped us through it all! The ceremony was perfect - she's articulate and passionate and made our ceremony feel so special! :)
We selected Annie as our officiant for our Killington Grand wedding in May 2016. We found her extremely helpful in planning all aspects of our ceremony. She provided us readings, help with personal touches and vows, making it very little work for us, which is something that anyone planning a wedding knows is helpful especially during the final planning stages. Additionally, we came up with a unique unity ceremony for which Annie wrote the perfect passage. If you want an officiant that will assist you along the way and provide guidance then Annie is an excellent choice.
Annie more than met our expectations, she was open and available when we had questions and the ceremony went perfectly! It was evident from the initial meeting that she had ample experience. I cannot say enough about the service we received. She truly played a vital role in making our wedding memorable!
Stop looking!!!! You have found your officiant! Annie is THE BEST. Annie officiated our wedding this past July at Jay Peak. From our first phone call to our wedding day Annie literally went above and beyond to help us create the perfect ceremony. She is very professional, incredibly helpful and so kind. After an initial meeting and several follow up phone calls I felt confident that our day would be perfect and it was. We are so happy we chose Annie to be apart of our day.
Annie was the officiant for our wedding this September and she was amazing! Very professional and experienced. We had a pre wedding meeting that she worked around our schedule since we are from out of state. Everything went absolutely perfect the day of! Would definitely recommend Annie.
Annie was amazing!! From our first call to the day of the wedding she was always on top of everything. Having done so many weddings we felt so comfortable with her right from the start and trusted that she knew what she was doing. She is so personable and kind! We did most of our planning over the phone as my husband and I were living outside of Vermont. We did meet at her house to go over ceremony options in person but all other meetings were over the phone. Annie had so many ceremony options that we really felt like we were able to fully personalize our ceremony and make it our own. Annie shared her opinions but listened to what we wanted and ensured the end product was amazing. Annie was great at the rehearsal and stayed until we were comfortable with how it was all going to happen on the day of our wedding. We had a beautiful day the day of our wedding and Annie made sure it went flawlessly! We really appreciated how organized and prompt Annie was. With all the weddings she was the officiant for she always knew who we were when we called with questions or follow up items. Thanks so much Annie!
There was no research required for choosing our wedding officiant. Our venue recommended Annie and as soon as I looked her up, I knew I wanted her to be a part of our day. The hundreds of amazing reviews speak volumes. Annie was professional, friendly, and very organized. It was really a pleasure working with her. She helped us customize our ceremony to our unique personalities. I cannot say enough good things about Annie. Thanks to her, our ceremony was memorable and just perfect.
Annie likes to talk a lot about how many weddings she has officiated. While the way she speaks about it is a little excessive, originally it was reassuring. We thought she would be able to help craft our interfaith ceremony to be right for us while still honoring the traditions of our families. When we finally received her packet of ceremony resources in the mail, it was simply a template ceremony with two places that had options A, B, and C. We felt like our wedding ceremony was being ordered off of a value menu. Not the careful discussion of the traditions we wanted to incorporate. Disappointed, we wrote our own ceremony using a book. Initially she seemed to push back on several parts of this ceremony as if she was uncomfortable deviating from her well rehearsed template. This did seem to come from a genuine concern of ensuring things went smoothly, but we were still frustrated as this was our wedding ceremony and we did not want some cookie cutter that did not fit our lives. In the end she did use the ceremony we wrote. The real issue was during our rehearsal and during the wedding, it seemed very clear that Annie had barely given our ceremony a read through. She advertises as having experience with interfaith ceremonies, but she had a hard time pronouncing basic wedding words like chuppah. I can overlook that, if she did not mispronounce my name, my mother's name and several of our reader's names. We were aware this might be an issue so we provided phonetic pronunciation and made sure to review the names with her, but she still mispronounced all those important names. More of an inconvenience, than a complaint, but Annie was also really bad at replying to e-mail. She admitted to being a bit of a luddite, but when working with people from a distance it was stressful to have to wait weeks for her to reply to an e-mail or having to call her to get an answer after those weeks of no response.
Annie was an absolutely wonderful officiant! She was so helpful with planning the details and readings for our ceremony, keeping everyone organized on the day of, and with any questions we had throughout our whole planning process. She made the most beautiful day of our lives that much more special. My husband and I would recommend Annie to anyone looking to get married in the beautiful green mountains of Vermont!!
Annie was a true professional and a great help in officiating our wedding. She has a great set of options and guidelines and is very good at providing practical advice. Most importantly, Annie delivered a great performance on our wedding day. Highly recommend!!
Meet The Owner
After performing ceremonies as an elected Justice of the Peace in Stowe, Vermont (my home for 25 years), I decided after moving to my dream 1825 Historic property, to get a certification as a non-denominational officiant. This afforded me a variety of ceremony choices for couples to choose from- i.e. Civil (non-religious), religious and interfaith. As a former corporate event planner, designer (which included antique acquisition for clients) and extensive work in all phases of the hospitality industry, I bring my creative side into all my ceremonies.
