Perfect personalized love story and ceremony

Ann was an amazing officiant from start to finish! She was super easygoing while still giving us specific timelines and questionnaires to help us plan out the ceremony with her and to make it as personalized as we wanted. She crafted a beautiful, heartfelt ceremony that made everyone in the audience feel intimately involved in our love story and marriage. She was supportive, great at communicating with us what she needed, and was very responsive to our sudden “cutting down” of the ceremony due to it being a HOT day! So many guests came up afterward to tell us how much they loved the ceremony and especially the story Ann shared about our dating, proposal, and admiration of each other! I would recommend Ann to any bride wanting something personal that will make guests feel a part of their big day!


I truly enjoyed writing you and Ryan’s love story. Padme, your pitbull, was such a part of the story. It was perfect for her to bring the rings to Ryan in the ceremony. It was obvious how much your friends and family love you by the way they truly listened to the story and the ceremony. It was a beautiful ceremony and you were gorgeous in your wedding dress!

Highly recommend! Ann was perfect!

We met Ann at a wedding expo. To be perfectly honest, I was a bit worried about choosing someone we didn’t know previously, especially since our wedding was LGBT, but based on our short interaction with her and her Wedding Wire reviews, we decided to take a leap of faith. Boy am I glad we did!

Ann officiated our wedding and she was spectacular. She took a lot of time to write a ceremony that was exactly what we wanted. We wanted to keep scripture out of the service, but still bring in elements of religion/spirituality from our two separate religion. Ann was able to accomplish this perfectly and write/deliver a really powerful ceremony that everyone loved! I think every single person attending our wedding came up and told us that the ceremony was the best they’d ever been to. Ann stayed for a bit after the ceremony and she had a line of people who were waiting to talk to her – everyone really enjoyed her. We couldn’t have asked for anyone better and wouldn’t have changed a single thing!


It was truly an honour to marry you and Chris. The guests were honestly the most attentive I have ever seen. It was obvious that everyone there loved you both. They laughed at all the funny moments and cried at the tender ones. I enjoyed staying for a glass of wine and visiting with them after the ceremony. The joy they felt at your wedding was easily seen. I can not thank you enough for allowing to be part of your special day.

Caught in a Hailstorm

Highly Recommend

We highly recommend Ann as a wedding officiant. From the first time we met her and throughout the entire process she made my husband and I feel very comfortable and was easy to open up to. She customized the entire wedding ceremony to fit our personal love story. Despite some unexpected harsh weather that threw a wrench into our plans, Ann kept things calm and light, kept the ceremony flowing, and ensured everyone remembered what the day was all about. We had a fantastic wedding and Ann was a big part of it.


You and Saar were wonderful to work with. We did not know a hailstorm was coming but I could not imagine a more calm couple when that happened int eh ceremony. It was truly a pleasure to be part of your special day. Thank you for asking me to officiate.

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!
