Perfect CeremonyReviewed on 9/25/2013 Joyce Z
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!
A Pleasure to Work WithReviewed on 9/28/2013 Kristen S
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!
The PERFECT officiant!Reviewed on 9/24/2013 Bizzy B
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!
Wedding OfficiantReviewed on 3/24/2015 Joanna F
We got married Memorial Day Weekend-May 24, 2014. We were both raised Catholic but in our adult lives do not attend church regularly. Hence we had been thinking about our officiant, our faith, the overall religious message we wanted to remember and convey to those in attendance and what we would do for all of it for about 2-3 years before we even got engaged. Annie has a solid reputation and has officiated many weddings in the Vermont region. We saw numerous happy couples on her pages and liked how responsive and warm she was in our calls to one another. And whenever we would come up to the area for our planning trips she would work around our schedule so that we could also meet with a few of the other vendors as well and minimize the traveling for us. This was important since we did not live together in the same household prior to our wedding and from a planning perspective, orchestrating a semi-destination wedding while in a long-distance relationship when both partners want to be involved and are invested in the wedding details can be super tiring and involved. Nonetheless, the resulting product is worthwhile and we are proud of the outcome. Annie sits down with you and describes about three slight variations of ceremonies that she can conduct with your help. You as the couple get to choose the wordings you would like and discuss with her how friends and family should be involved. Annie also sent us planning worksheets and samples of poems and readings for the ceremony which were helpful. My husband, Chris, and I were each sharing in the planning of the wedding weekend and I allowed him to organize most of the files on Annie and our ceremony, however maintaining the view that it would be a joint effort on both of our parts, and a true exercise in testing our compatibility for marriage. Annie was ahead of time for the rehearsal as well as the day of the ceremony and had our vows that we’d sent her neatly typed and pasted on cards to reference as well as the readings for the readers during the ceremony. The ceremony went smoothly and without a hitch-there was some rain at the end (however, it is good luck on your day) and then it cleared up fast and we were blessed with a double rainbow. It was a beautiful day and a truly extraordinary ceremony!
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
Amazing CeremonyReviewed on 2/05/2015 Christina F
My husband and I hired Annie as our officiant for our winter wedding in Woodstock, VT. She was extremely professional, and it was very clear to us that she has many years of experience under her belt! We loved the vows and readings Annie suggested for us and also her idea to have a wine ceremony. She was amazing to work with and made us feel at ease with how the ceremony would turn out (which ended up being wonderful)! We would absolutely recommend her for future weddings in the Vermont area.
Where to begin...Reviewed on 1/19/2015 christi k
There aren't enough things that we can say that would adequately show our appreciation for the way that Annie handled our wedding- with a torn accilles tendon, on the way up to the altar! She was a trooper from the start, helping us with anything we needed, including the town hall (which was more of a problem than you would believe, but she straightened it all out). It was great having her there to help direct us through every second of the ceremony, and she had our vows and our father's speeches all transcribed onto little index cards that she brought on the day, and kept everything in order for us. She is outgoing, knowlegable, professional, and upbeat, and made the whole day less stressful even though she was probably a little stressed herself with her injury! Need we say more? If you can get her, take her!
great to work with!Reviewed on 10/13/2014
Annie was great in helping us plan our wedding. We were having to plan our wedding from Texas, so my husband and i needed a lot of help along the way. Annie was great! She had a ton of resources for us to look through and was VERY helpful in helping us make decisions as to what we wanted. (we were so clueless on so many things) If she thought our idea/plan needed a little help, she gave great advice that we ended up loving. She helped us plan a very beautiful wedding that really matched our personalities and we were very proud of.
Christmas Wedding of our DreamsReviewed on 10/11/2014 Shana M
We planned a Christmas Destination wedding in Vermont from Virginia, and Annie was extremely helpful in making our dreams come true. We had regular phone conversations with her that allowed us to convey our goals for the ceremony and emailed us several great suggestions for our vows and readings. During the day of the ceremony, she was extremely helpful with the rehearsal, and even went so far as to travel around town with us while our photographer took our wedding pictures. We really enjoyed having her as our officiant and recommend her to anyone getting married in Vermont.
Great OfficiantReviewed on 10/10/2014
Annie was professional, easy going, organized and personable. I enjoyed working with her and she made everything go smoothly from afar. Annie is someone I would recommend again. Thank you Annie.
Organized and dedicated!Reviewed on 10/09/2014
We had a great experience working with Annie for our June 21st wedding at Mountain Meadows in Killington, Vermont. After our first meeting with her, she kept in touch to discuss ideas and was great about keeping us on track with our "homework" leading up to the wedding. She had lots of ideas to share from her bountiful experience, but was also very open and flexible to let us incorporate our own details of the ceremony. She is extremely professional and made the whole ceremony run perfectly smoothly, from prepping beforehand, to the rehearsal, all the way to the big day. Thank you again Annie for your services. We would be happy to recommend you to anyone looking for a dedicated, organized, and open-minded officiant.
Warn-hearted speechReviewed on 10/05/2014
Annie did a wonderful job from the day we met her to the day of our wedding. She had lots of reading samples and ideas for us to choose. The day before the wedding, she helped us to reorganize the ceremony site. I was skeptical at the beginning but it worked perfectly! Her charming personality got the audience and her soft voice made me cry of happiness. Thanks a lot Annie!
In the mountains of VermontReviewed on 10/05/2014 Evan P
Annie was one of the few officiants we had to decide with. Because of her time and dedication, not to mention professionalism, we were very happy to of chosen Annie. She was with us every step of the way even months way before the wedding. We recommend Annie to anyone getting married in Vermont. - Evan and Samantha Page
Wonderful officiant!!Reviewed on 9/30/2014 Cyndi H
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.
Polished professionalReviewed on 9/30/2014
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!
Perfect CeremonyReviewed on 9/30/2014
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!
A Beautiful HandfastingReviewed on 9/22/2014 Tracey F
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.
Annie provided a truly special ceremony!Reviewed on 9/22/2014 Erin C
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!!
Stowe Winter WeddingReviewed on 10/06/2013 Betsy & Stephanie F
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.
Perfect officiant for our perfect day!Reviewed on 10/05/2013 Heather A
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.
Personalized Wedding!Reviewed on 9/24/2013 Chelsea S
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!
Absolutely Amazing!Reviewed on 9/15/2013 Callie P
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!
Perfect CeremonyReviewed on 9/02/2013 Jennifer F
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!
Customized WeddingReviewed on 11/06/2012 Ross P
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.
Wonderful and Exceptional!!Reviewed on 11/06/2012 Leslie S
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
