Your Wedding Ceremony (formal or casual) With Unique, Personal & Custom Touches. Small, Intimate Ceremonies & Elopements, too! All Faiths and Traditions. Inclusive, Unstuffy, Creative, Respectful and Fun. Marriage Equality Honored. Affordable & All Budgets. www.marriedbyannemarie.com
My name is Annemarie Juhlian and it is my privilege and joy to work with you - an excited and engaged couple - to create and deliver your personalized, romantic and memorable wedding ceremony (formal or casual) - one that celebrates your unique story and creates an authentic and cherished memory for years to come.

I am best suited for a highly committed and motivated couple who values personality, originality and meaning around their ceremony. For me, it is not about the size of a guest list - rather, it is about creating an authentic and joyful lifetime experience for two wonderful people (you!) and your family/friends.

I respect and honor all beliefs and traditions - religious, spiritual or secular. As a full-time Seattle/Tacoma Wedding Officiant, Celebrant and contemporary Non-Denominational Minister, I am passionate about creating a ceremony that is truly about the two of you and your tribe.

As I don't do "cookie cutter" or "blah, blah, blah" ceremony and as this work is personal in nature, I can offer you a fee quote for services once I fully understand what you want/desire for ceremony. For more information on services and fees: www.marriedbyannemarie.com

I fully appreciate that selecting an Officiant is most likely an unfamiliar process. My goal in working together is to make this a fun and easy experience - no weirdness or hassles - just the joy of knowing we like each other and we have the marvelous opportunity to create and work together on a lifetime moment.

And if truth be told, I am somewhat of a protective "mama bear" when it comes to working with a couple around their ceremony. Truth? I'm vested in creating a super positive, super joyful and inspiring lifetime experience.

Personal Note: I love this work. It is challenging in all ways and I feel immense gratitude and honor to share in a most intimate and vulnerable lifetime experience. At the end of the day, I go home to Bainbridge Island and to my wonderful husband, Greg, and our household of rescue and special needs dogs (volunteer dog rescue/rehab work is my heart work).

I welcome your call at 425.922.1325 or email here (anne@marriedbyannemarie.com) to set up a time for coffee/tea and conversation and/or to inquire about my availability.

Annemarie was an amazing officiant! From our initial meeting with Annemarie we knew she was a great fit for us as a couple. Annemarie is a warm, confident, bubbly and passionate officiant, who truly believes in the celebration of couples and the journey they are about to embark on. To start, Annemarie had both my fiancé and me fill out an individual and a couples questionnaire. At first I thought this was a bit daunting, but it was a great experience to look more deeply into our relationship. From this Annemarie wrote a beautiful ceremony that was truly unique and inspiring. From my (brides) perspective these are the top three things I loved about Annemarie; 1) Annemarie presented herself in a professional manner and spoke with conviction and care when officiating our wedding, 2) Annemarie took extra time and really listened to what we wanted for our wedding 3) Annemarie is the ultimate cheerleader for love – she made the day joyous for both my husband and me. Lastly, it was so lovely to have many of our guests comment on what a wonderful ceremony we had and how personal and thoughtful it was. Thanks Annemarie!

Annemarie officiated at our destination wedding, 6/26/2014 at Salish Lodge. She was amazing from start to finish and we couldn't have asked for a better or more meaningful ceremony. She worked with us before the ceremony to understand what we wanted to bring out in the wedding, how we wanted to feel and how we wanted our guests to feel. She crafted a heartfelt uplifting ceremony and set of vows that formed the perfect first moments of our married life. She was just great - sincere and energetic and there is no mistaking that she loves what she does. She was also very communicative, no guessing about what's next or when its needed (marriage licenses etc) Her website is very helpful for ideas, particularly for out of towners like us. We loved having her as a part of our wedding day and recommend her 110%!

First off, what a wonderful human being. This lady lights up a room! She demands your attention (in the best way possible) and has such a PRESENCE about her. We knew right away that we wanted someone non-denominational (to fit with out religious views) and we knew we didn't want to say our own vows. We also didn't want a cookie cutter ceremony - we wanted someone who would KNOW the two of us and who would be able to convey who we are and what we love about each other to our audience. Annemarie had us fill out questionnaires (both separate and together as a couple) and used that information to create a unique, beautiful, heart felt ceremony. So many happy tears! After the ceremony, more than half the guests asked how we found Annemarie and told us what a fantastic job she did creating a touching, personal, unique ceremony. They hadn't been to any wedding ceremony like it! It was exactly what we wanted :) We love her and would recommend her whole-heartedly . She is worth EVERY penny.

My husand and I fell in love with Annemarie as soon as we met her. She has the most beautiful aura about herself that you instantly fall in love with. We were excited about our big day but excited about the "homework" that was in store for us provided by Annemarie. Who gets excited about homework? This goes to show you how special Annemarie is. The rehearsal could not have went well at all without Annemarie's professionalism and unique style of being the best in the business. I appreciate her for not only being a great Officiant but being a special friend during our wedding planning.

If you are looking for a warm caring consummate professional for your wedding ceremony Annemarie Juhlian is it. Dan and I met Annemarie for the 1st time about 4 months before our ceremony; it was a short 30 minute meeting that gave both us and Annemarie a chance to overview our expectations and check out each other’s personalities. As my then finance and I walked out of the meeting we both looked at each other and said “she’s perfect!” Over the next couple of months Annemarie was in contact with us giving us homework and gathering information and the end result was exactly the same as Annemarie in a word PERFECT!.

Shortly after the ceremony and in the days following both friends and family alike commented on how personal our ceremony was and just how wonderful our officiant was. Annemarie wrote and delivered a very personal, warm and inviting ceremony and as we sit and reflect on the day we feel so blessed to have had Annemarie as a part of our wedding day.

I can honestly say that our wedding was seamless, spectacular, and memorable all thanks to Annemarie!!! She came to our rehearsal and took charge in the most gracefull way. She made sure everyone understood the flow and fixed any issues in the moment. She was understanding of our special requests and worked to create the most meaningful ceremony I've ever seen. She went above and beyond to make our day the most special day. I know I'm a bit biased about my own wedding but everyone that attended had so many wonderful things to say about our ceremony and specifically Annemarie. A handful of guests requested her information for themselves or people they know getting married soon. I'd reccommend her to anyone, she will exceeds all expectations!

There are simply no words great enough to describe Annemarie, however I will do my best. I first found out about her from reading online reviews, the comments were all excellent! I decided to set up our first meeting and when my husband and I met her, I knew right away she was a perfect fit for us! Not only did she come across with the utmost professionalism, but we also found out that she dedicates all of her "free" time to rescuing and adopting disabled and senior citizen dogs! That was it for us, you could see and feel her compassion and also her sincerity when talking about the couples who she had married. Annemarie provided us with questionnaires, one for each of us and one we would both work on. I have to say, that experience was incredible, it was so wonderful to be able to tell her our story. During the entire process leading up to the big day, she always followed through and was always accessible and timely. We were excited when we saw her in action for the first time as she led the rehearsal, she was amazing! She rallied everyone which I can imagine isn't easy with a big wedding party, but she was perfect! She had everyone on point and walked us through the steps with ease and simplicity. On the big day, she arrived early to make sure we were all set and that everything was exactly the way we discussed! The ceremony was beyond our dreams magical! It was literally everything we could have ever imagined and more! Annemarie knew the story of my husband and I from the questionnaires, but it was her delivery! She was so engaging and sincere, it was as though she had known us forever! She had our guests so in tune yet she was completely focused on us! After our ceremony, my husband and I lost count of the number of family and friends that came up to us to compliment her; they fell in love with her as we did! There it no other like Annemarie, she is absolutely unbelievable!!! Thank you from the bottom of our heart for everything!!!

Truly wonderful! We love Annemarie. She was our wonderful and lovely Officiant. And she was, as she first shared with us during our first meeting, "our ceremony air traffic controller." We couldn't have asked for a better ceremony experience. Annemarie took over our rehearsal and brought calm and peace to our day. She arrived early on our wedding day and we loved knowing everything would be okay for our ceremony - "Annemarie had arrived!" And everything was more than okay. Our ceremony started on time (a big deal to us) and everything was beautiful. She brought love and humor to our ceremony and as we look back, we are very happy and we are very proud. If you are seeking an amazing officiant, you must call or email Annemarie. We would give her hundreds of stars if we could!

My wife and I knew we wanted to come to the Seattle area from Chicago to have a small elopement-style ceremony with our Aunt and Uncle and their 2 dogs as our guests and witnesses. We came across Annemarie's website and just had a feeling she was the officiant for us- we were right! From the beginning, she always responded to emails and calls within the hour (if not sooner). She recommended the perfect location (Willows Lodge in Woodinville), and was helpful throughout our planning with all of our questions.

She asked us to fill out a questionnaire to get to know us as a couple, and from that, wrote a beautiful ceremony that we truly ended up loving. She showed up on the day of our ceremony exactly when she promised she would, and immediately made us comfortable and at ease.

Annemarie helped make our day perfect and we can't thank her enough.

Annemarie is absolutely INCREDIBLE! She helped us craft the ceremonies that we'd always dreamt of -- personalized, uniquely "us", warm, and touching. Our guests raved about her, and my bridesmaid said that it sounds like she's known us for years. She officiated two ceremonies for us (American and Korean), and we are so glad that we chose her as our officiant. Annemarie is dedicated, flawlessly organized, creative, and incredibly gifted. She has a knack for running things smoothly, while making everyone around her feel comfortable and happy. Words can't do justice to how amazing she is!

Throughout the planning process, Annemarie couldn't have been more supportive and helpful. She always responded to emails the same day with a thoughtful reply, and she had so many creative ideas that we loved! I love to read and write, so words are really important and meaningful to me. Annemarie's first draft was incredible and customized to us as a couple, and I got tears in my eyes when I read it. It was beautiful, personal, and exactly captured the warm, festive, touching feel that we'd envisioned.

My husband and I had an elaborate Korean ceremony in addition to the American one. Annemarie was so enthusiastic about the Korean ceremony and helpful with every detail! She made everyone feel calm and confident, and when we forgot what to do, she guided us with verbal cues. Our guests loved the Korean ceremony, which was full of color and interesting props, and it was deeply meaningful to us to be able to honor our parents and incorporate our cultural backgrounds. We are thankful beyond words for the beautiful memory that Annemarie helped us create.

In a nutshell, we recommend Annemarie to everyone. She will help to craft a personal ceremony that reflects each couple, and she is a true delight and joy to work with!

My wife and I decided on a destination wedding in Seattle. We had a small group(13+3 babies not including us) that made the trip. We wanted our ceremony to be perfect not only for us, but for our loved ones who flew all the way to Seattle to see us get married. The decision to get married in Seattle made everything a little bit more difficult on us because we live in Michigan. It is very hard to make decisions when you are unable to see anything beforehand except in photos. Annemarie made one of the hardest parts(the ceremony) the easiest. She had us fill out a detailed worksheet that helped her get an idea of what we were about as a couple. She spoke with a few of our closest friends to get more insight. She had the entire ceremony written out well in advance of the actual ceremony for us to review and discuss. Annemarie made it so easy for us, and the vows were so personalized.

She is a beautiful speaker - not to mention statuesque, so she adds a real touch of elegance to your wedding with her presence.

My wife and I decided on a destination wedding in Seattle. We had a small group(13+3 babies not including us) that made the trip. We wanted our ceremony to be perfect not only for us, but for our loved ones who flew all the way to Seattle to see us get married. The decision to get married in Seattle made everything a little bit more difficult on us because we live in Michigan. It is very hard to make decisions when you are unable to see anything beforehand except in photos. Annemarie made one of the hardest parts(the ceremony) the easiest. She had us fill out a detailed worksheet that helped her get an idea of what we were about as a couple. She spoke with a few of our closest friends to get more insight. She had the entire ceremony written out well in advance of the actual ceremony for us to review and discuss. Annemarie made it so easy for us, and the vows were so personalized.

We are so very glad we chose Annemarie Juhlian to spend our most special day with. Since we had to travel from Austin Texas for our ceremony and would only be in Seattle one night, she picked up our paperwork at the Clerks office and had everything ready to go! Annemarie was personable and personalized our vows to reflect our eighteen year relationship. In addition, she served as photographer and lighting expert! This day will be a cherished memory thanks to Annemarie.

Where do I even start?? When I asked for suggestions for officiants I was given Annemarie's name with the comment "if she's available, take her!" Lucky for us, she was and we did! We could not have been more pleased. Annemarie was personal, friendly, and professional. She created a ceremony that was intimate and personal yet kept the attention of our 170 guests (who all raved about her). The day of our wedding the weather was crazy - record setting winds! Annemarie took an early ferry from her home to ensure her timely arrival for our evening ceremony. I was blown (pun intended) away with her commitment to our ceremony. Thank you Annemarie for everything! As a bride it's so nice to have such a major component of ones wedding handled without any type of stress.

For all you future brides out there I give you the wise words of advice I was given when looking for an officiant: if she's available, take her!

We were referred to Annemarie by our wedding planner Lisa. To be honest our officiant wasn't at the top of our list of wedding priorities but we agreed to meet with her. I don't think I have misjudged the importance of a situation until meeting Annemarie. She has an inspired, incredible soul and we instantly fell in love with her and couldn't imagine anyone else conducting our ceremony. Annemarie made us feel like the only people in our 150+ attended ceremony and truly wowed our audience. The way she can talk to crowds is enchanting and the ceremony she delivered was inspired. She's also a kindred soul with dogs and put our golden retriever at ease. Having Annemarie officiate your ceremony will elevate it to a level I hadn't considered prior to mine. She has made two lifelong friends and we are so grateful she was the one to marry us. Annemarie is exactly what a wonderful wedding needs to put it into a phenomenal experience. Thank you Annemarie!

Friends who attended the ceremony could not believe that we had not even met or talked on the phone; it was as if she had known us for years. We echo all the other reviews about her professionalism, warmth, flexibility, organization, and casual elegance.

I must say we had a perfect wedding! It happened our first major wedding decision was to work with Annemarie and we both remember the day we met. Annemarie’s charisma, energy and beautiful smile beamed the moment she stepped out of her car. She asked questions like, “How do you want to feel on your wedding day?” “How do you want your guests to feel on your wedding day?” I could almost say the decision to work with Annemarie was made before that first hug! We are SO thankful the date worked out!

We completed questionnaires individually and as a couple which Annemarie used to create the perfect ceremony to celebrate our love story that began 26 years ago. The entire process was inclusive and allowed us time to provide feedback and make minor revisions – in was so nice to feel connected in this way to the amazing gift Annemarie has creating something truly unique, touching and memorable. Our ceremony expressed exactly how we felt about each other, our love for each other and the love we have for our family and friends.

Her support during planning, the rehearsal and on our wedding day was more than we ever imagined. We knew we were in good hands and looking back, it was relaxing and pleasant. We heard from others how their wedding ceremony was a blur. Thanks to Annemarie, we remember every wonderful moment!

So many of our guests raved about Annemarie and how beautiful our ceremony was. Everyone felt special and that they were part of something wonderful. We can’t thank Annemarie enough!!

When we began looking for a wedding officiant, we knew it would have to be someone very special because we have an ordained minister in my wife's family...to not choose my future sister-in-law meant we had to find someone that was just perfect for us both. Annemarie Juhlian is that person.

We didn’t know what a Celebrant was, but I can tell you now that it is a title one earns when she brings all of herself to the role of not just officiating your wedding, but guiding you & your beloved to deeply look at why you are choosing to marry. Annemarie has crafted very inquisitive & insightful questions that she asks of you in preparation for writing your unique ceremony. She took the time to get to know us & what we wanted for our day.

Annemarie made us feel protected, supported & guided through each step. My wife & I would read the drafts, make edits, send it back & forth until we all came to the place where the ceremony felt fine-tuned. She walked us through rehearsal with strong direction, reminding me along the way that she had it all under control. What a GIFT that was to receive. I am a little controlling as I am VERY detail oriented, but was able to let go because I trusted her completely. She created and orchestrated our wedding with grace & love...it was absolutely perfect.

Annemarie is a consummate professional when it comes to creating a sense of sacred space, engaging in a heartfelt yet lively manner with the audience, and most importantly, in helping to ground the nervous brides. As as we stood together with her as our guide, ready to make the biggest commitment of our lives, we both felt relaxed and calm, and were able to be fully present for every moment & word spoken in our ritual.

The part Annemarie played in the start of our marriage will never be forgotten. We feel forever grateful to her. We cannot say enough good things about her to those of you seeking someone for this role, but we can simply say, she’s the one. She is the BEST.

I LOVE ANNEMARIE! I love everything about her! She took time to get to know us as a couple, she personalized our ceremony and I was crying the whole time. She made everyone there understand our love and relationship. People know you get married because you love each other, but she personalized our ceremony where everyone GET US. She adopted to last-minute unfortunate changes (family member not being about to make it) very well. She is full of energy and excitement. A LOT of people at the ceremony came up to us and mentioned how great Annemarie was.

Annemarie is in control and very detailed. She's well organized and professional. It's a stressful time so you want the less amount of stress. Annemarie also helped coordinate all of us during the rehearsal (which was badly needed) and also on the wedding day.

I would 100% recommend her! NO ONE ELSE COMPARES! I PROMISE YOU! We got married later in life and have been to tons of wedding and no one is like Annemarie.

From the moment my fiance and I met Annemarie, we knew she would make our ceremony perfect. We had no idea what we were in store for! She wrote a BEAUTIFUL ceremony for us, paying great attention to our lifestyle, family and feelings for each other. She was so professional and projects the love for her craft in her enthusiasm and manner. We received feedback from everyone at our wedding how amazing the officiant was. She inspired everyone with a new style of ceremony in that she was not "cookie cutter". She is funny and expressed the love we have for each other intensly. She wrote personal vows and shared them with our guests with such style. One couple asked if she is available to perform their ceremony! We were also told by many that our ceremony was the best they have ever witnessed. She is amazing and I have a great amount of adoration and respect for her. I wish we could do it all over again :-) We are going to have our ceremony printed and framed for us to read occasionally, it was that good!!

The ceremony was so beautiful, there wasn't a dry eye in the house! With her charm, humor, and eloquence, Annemarie guided us through one special moment after another. She's incredibly organized, and her steady presence during the ceremony was calming. Also, the week before the wedding, she met with us at our outdoor ceremony site (a public garden in Seattle) and walked us through all aspects of the ceremony. We couldn't imagine anyone doing a better job. If you want a truly special and customized ceremony, contact Annemarie right away!

Annemarie was an amazing officiant. My now-husband and I had a small wedding at Rays Boathouse, and she was the perfect officiant. She kept us on time, had lots of helpful tips, and wrote an absolutely beautiful ceremony for us. We are so happy we chose to go with Annemarie (and to be honest, we hired her on the spot, when we met her--because we could immediately tell she was right for our wedding).

My mom was especially touched that she took such care of my needs and wants, as the bride. I am sure there are a lot of pushy families out there, and Annemarie was just focused on the needs of myself and my groom, despite the craziness around us.

Annemarie is simply amazing~ We came across her while planning our long distance wedding. Upon speaking on the phone, we clicked immediately! We loved the idea of doing our own personal ceremony that was unique to us and could incorporate all the things that we loved.

Annemarie was very easy to work with, a pleasure to have as part of our wedding and I would recommend her to anyone. She was very professional and well dressed at the wedding, spoke well and delivered a wonderful ceremony. All of our guests commented on how fabulous and unique this ceremony was, stating that they had not seen a ceremony like this before, raving about how it was so "us". It was a pleasure to work with Annemarie and despite the distance, she made this process easy.

We were so glad to have found Annemarie and were thrilled with the overall wedding planning process as she made this a lot of fun. We liked the little personal questionnaire as we got to go through our past history together, how we met, what we love about each other and what we hope for the future!

Thanks Annemarie, we could not have asked for a better officiant~

We liked the little personal questionnaire as we got to go through our past history together, how we met, what we love about each other and what we hope for the future!

Thanks Annemarie, we could not have asked for a better officiant~ Read less

Annemarie is simply amazing~ We came across her while planning our long distance wedding. Upon speaking on the phone, we clicked immediately! We loved the idea of doing our own personal ceremony that was unique to us and could incorporate all the things that we loved.

Annemarie was very easy to work with, a pleasure to have as part of our wedding and I would recommend her to anyone. She was very professional and well dressed at the wedding, spoke well and delivered a wonderful ceremony. All of our guests commented on how fabulous and unique this ceremony was, stating that they had not seen a ceremony like this before, raving about how it was so "us".

From the first email exchange, Annemarie was professional and reliable. At our first meeting, I felt a total connection with her. We had attended the same college back in New York, but her radiant personality and passion for her job as a wedding officiate won me over.
Day of the wedding, Annemarie arrived and coordinated last minute details before the ceremony. She spent a few minutes with me calming my nerves and making me smile. She was a breeze of calm fresh air. My nerves were calmed and was able to really enjoy my wedding ceremony.
The ceremony itself was personal, humorous, meaningful, and beautiful. Everything I had ever dreamed of for my wedding.

My fiance and myself contacted Annemarie with less than a week's advance notice to officiate our ceremony. Long story short we found Annemarie from the great reviews she has already received. She was very inviting and was excited to find a way to make our ceremony happen and still be one to remember. We found her to be an extremely warm and efficient person to work with. Her energy and contagiously fantastic smile made the special day go very smoothly and very very memorable. Thank you very much for your great service style. What a stress free wedding ceremony we had ;-) Fantastic!!!

We first met Annemarie having no real idea of what we were after, and she guided us seamlessly through our first meeting, putting us at ease and offering suggestions and advice beyond the ceremony itself.

After providing her with background information, Annemarie crafted and sent through a draft ceremony to us for our review. It was exactly what we wanted, and included some beautiful touches that we incorporated into the ceremony but would never have thought of ourselves.

In the weeks leading up to our wedding day, Annemarie responded to our emails with succinct answers in a very timely fashion, and when we had to re-schedule our rehearsal not once but twice at the last minute, Annemarie was extremely flexible and accommodated our schedules.

On the day, Annemarie guided us through the ceremony with elegance and ease, and we felt like we were in great hands at all times. The ceremony was very personal and crafted specifically for us, and we received lots of positive feedback from our guests. We really couldn't have asked for anything more.

I would wholeheartedly recommend Annemarie to anyone thinking of getting married!

We will never be able to find the words to describe the "role" Annemarie performed in our nuptials. We knew from our very first contact with her that we were in expert hands. She is the consummate professional officiant; and she is an authentically kind and generous person. There is no wonder at all why she is so sought after among the betrothed in the Seattle area.

Perfect, brilliant, inspiring....the list of compliments is truly endless. Annemarie really is one in a million and it was a pleasure to get to know and work with her. Annemarie created such a beautiful and meaningful ceremony that I was in tears at reading the first draft. From start to finish, we could not have asked to work with a nicer lady. Annemarie was always available to answer questions and offer advice. We had the added challenge of planning our wedding 5000 miles from our home in England. Annemarie made the process simple and enjoyable. Her enthusiasm and commitment was a joy and enabled us to have such a memorable day. I cannot put into words the gratitude that my Wife and I owe Annemarie. Thanks to Annemarie our Wedding was perfect and I cannot recommend her highly enough.

Annemarie was fantastic and I could not recommend her more to other people! Having attended several weddings I see that officiants create the intimacy and individuality of the ceremony. She did this so well at ours that the guests kept asking "where did you find her, she was absolutely fantastic?!" I don't normally write reviews, but it is important to me that we get the word out about her because she made our wedding that much better and I want others to feel that way too.

She brings enthusiasm, wit, joy, and a level of safety. We felt secure and she carried us through the wedding with grace. The care that she has for people radiates from her whole body. She took the wedding from great, to another level.

If you value an outstanding and memorable ceremony, Annemarie is your woman!

My wife let me choose our officiant. I had been looking all over and reading reviews for a couple of months. The one person that kept popping up at the top of the list was Annemarie. So, emailed her and she responded same day to set up a meeting with us. I knew my wife would like her but it was me that I was worried about. Annemarie had the biggest smile on her face when she met us and was so warm and comforting. I knew that she was the one for us. She is very professional and takes out all the worry that you would have for your ceremony. After our meeting and wedding, my wife and I fell in love with her. I would recommend her to any of my friends and family.

Annemarie is EVERYTHING you need if you want a personalized one-of-a-kind ceremony. She asks the right questions and provides you with an end product so far bond your highest expectations that you and your guests will be raving about her for ceremonies to come! The hard work that she puts in to getting to know her couples is astounding, but even more so brilliant is how her hard work and questions help you to rediscover your love of your partner and why you are making the life and love altering decision to get married. My wedding wouldn't have been as great without her.

When we started our awckward search for a random stranger to officiate our most intimate and important life event I didn't think it would be possible to find someone to meet our standards and needs.

Finding the perfect fit in personality, needs and expectations on both parties is essential and Annemarie was just perfect for us and really took the guess work, uncertainty and worry out of the already stressful wedding planning. Cheer Annemarie we will stay in touch. Thank you again! We feel so lucky to have found you.

When original plans had fallen through and we were not able to have our wedding ceremony in the Catholic church that I had grew up in, I was devistated and very hesitatant to enter unfamiliar territory re: finding someone other than my parish priest to perform our ceremony. I found Annemarie on a wedding expo website. I was impressed and intrigued by her own website which quickly prompted me to contact her. Let me say, we were a 'couple on a budget' but she was totally worth it. We were blown away. From our first consultation meeting to the end of our wedding ceremony, Annemarie was very professional, our ceremony was carefully thought out and she took everything we said we wanted our ceremony to be and feel like and she did not disappoint. She is a great listener and genuinely wants you to have the wedding ceremony of your dreams. She knows how to command a rowdy bridal party crowd and still keep her cool. She is funny and knows when to be serious. We loved her and so did our parents who are both very traditional. She touched on both old tradition but also incorporated a modern feel, most importantly; she always kept what we wanted in mind. Annemarie is great and we highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for an officiant. As I expressed to Annemarie in a personal conversation, 'Thank YOU again for your expertise in conducting our ceremony with professionalism, wisdom, understanding and heart. You washed away any fears and doubts I had regarding asking someone other than my parish priest to perform in our ceremony' - Karen and Rodney

Dear Annemarie,

Thank you sooo much for the AMAZING Wedding Ceremony you performed for us on April 28th! It felt like a fairy tale and dream come true! It is so hard to think of words to describe the feelings that we felt during our ceremony. I know we all worked really hard on pulling it all together. Because of all of your in-depth questions that we answered about us and our lives, you created an amazing "custom wedding ceremony" all about us, our lives, our families, friends and loved ones. We have been to a number of weddings before, and also have both been married previously. Our memories were of very dry ceremonies. Well, not with you! You brought passion, love, and humor to our ceremony. We have received many many compliments about your ceremony, all of them with the same conclusion, that ours was the "best" wedding ceremony they had ever been to! We agree! Thank you so much for including our family and friends in our ceremony. We loved the part about my mom walking me down the aisle. That was so sweet to have her included. You did an amazing job from start to finish, including our wedding rehearsal. Then when the actual wedding day unfolded, you worked seamlessly with our "day of" wedding planner to pull it all off. I was so involved with putting this wedding together, and it was so nice to know I could finally relax on the "day of" and trust you and my wedding planner to take over. Everything went so smoothly Annemarie. You did not let us down! We will highly recommend you to anyone we know who is getting married.

Thank you again!

Rick and Clare

Many people commented on what a fantastic job she
did and we couldn't agree more. Even my mom said she did a great job
and she's very picky since she wanted her husband to do it for us. At the rehearsal she took the lead and kept it moving with good humor and patience.
During the ceremony she made it easier for me to keep it together for a little while and then to keep it together enough to at least speak after I started crying. :) She knows how to make everyone laugh at the right time and she knows how to make things happen at just the right times. She added just the right amount of gravity to the ceremony without making it too intense. We are so happy with everything she helped us with. She is always in great spirits and it made us feel confident that it was going to be perfect. And contrary to what everyone told us to expect out of our wedding, it was perfect. Thank you so much Annemarie!

and she's very picky since she wanted her husband to do it for us. At the rehearsal she took the lead and kept it moving with good humor and patience.
During the ceremony she made it easier for me to keep it together for a little while and then to keep it together enough to at least speak after I started crying. :) She knows how to make everyone laugh at the right time and she knows how to make things happen at just the right times. She added just the right amount of gravity to the ceremony without making it too intense. We are so happy with everything she helped us with. She is always in great spirits and it made us feel confident that it was going to be perfect. And contrary to what everyone told us to expect out of our wedding, it was perfect. Thank you so much Annemarie! Read less

Annemarie was a dream come true. She wrote and officiated such a personal, meaningful ceremony for us, that a number of the male guests at our wedding apparently went all weepy. She was energetic and steady enough that when it seemed like everything was falling apart just before the ceremony, we pulled though with flying colors. I could not recommend her more highly.

My husband and I attended a wedding that Annemarie officiated and immediately fell in love. She is incredibly charismatic and wrote a beautiful ceremony, celebrating the love story of the couple. That was exactly what WE wanted! We hired Annemarie to be our wedding celebrant - we wanted a non-religious ceremony that was completely tailored to US! She is extremely well organized and communicative. We did pre-marital coaching with Annemarie which definitely helped set us up for success. It also allowed her to get to know us, as a couple and as individuals. She gave us questionnaires via email and asked us to complete them individually and as a couple - she used this information to write us a PERFECT ceremony. She allowed us to customize/edit/revise everything she did until it was perfect. (It didn't take much!) She had wonderful, creative suggestions for different aspects of our ceremony. On the day of the rehearsal - Annemarie whipped our wedding party into shape. I greatly appreciated her no-nonsense, organized, approach. It took a lot of the pressure off of me! On the wedding day, she delivered a flawless ceremony - one that we'll always remember and cherish. Our guests raved about the ceremony - saying it was the best they'd heard...that it was all about US (which is very important, on your wedding!) We adore Annemarie beyond words and you would be SO LUCKY to have her officiate your wedding!

Annemarie is absolutely wonderful! She's professional, thoughtful, and has such an amazingly warm personality. She was genuinely interested in learning about us as a couple, and it definitely showed in the ceremony that she wrote for us. When she sent the draft of our ceremony over, I actually had to stop reading it because it was making me cry while I was at work. On the day of our wedding, our guests were in tears, and afterwards, they told us that it was the best wedding ceremony they’ve ever attended. It was such a pleasure working with Annemarie, I would definitely recommend her!

Annemarie made our wedding ceremony truly personal. People told us they cried at our wedding -- and they never cry at weddings! Because I wanted to honor my Persian heritage, Annemarie suggested incorporating a honey ceremony in our wedding. My husband and I fed each other a taste of honey to sweeten our marriage. It was a unique and special touch. Because we love to travel and have adventures, Annemarie suggested making an adventure box. We made 25 envelopes with adventures in them. Every anniversary, we will select an adventure for the coming year. Our honeymoon was the first adventure we picked from the box!

Annemarie was a master orchestrator for us at our wedding. She made sure everyone was in the right place and the ceremony started on time! She coordinated with our vendors so everyone knew their cues and had appetizers waiting for us after the ceremony in our room. She is always on top of things and returns e-mails promptly. She also was very accommodating for us when our venue changed our rehearsal date at the last minute.

We couldn't have had a more beautiful wedding! Annemarie crafted us an elegant, meaningful, and momentous ceremony that was a reflection of us as a couple.

Annemarie was the perfect officiant for our intimate, personalized, and playful ceremony. She worked side by side with us to create the perfect vows, incorporated our families and guests into the ceremony, and even helped to fit in a Dr. Suess reading that meant a lot to us. She worked hard to make the ceremony completely about us and for us and it reflected us so much as a couple. Anyone looking for someone to officiate their ceremony that wants it to be personal and for it to be performed by someone they feel completely comfortable with- Annemarie is your officiant!

Requesting Annemarie to be your wedding officiant will be the best decision you make in your wedding planning. I highly recommend that you stop your search and seek her out as your officiant! She is warm, friendly, funny, direct, accommodating, helpful, insightful, reflective, easy to work with, calming, well-spoken one-on-one and with crowds. We knew we had the best officiant because every one of vendors knew Annemarie and commented on how lucky we were to have her as our officiant. She touched our hearts tremendously and made our ceremony feel like a fairytale. I do not know what I would have done without her. I am not exaggerating when I say that every guest I spoke with commented on how beautiful and personal the ceremony was. I could write for a long time about how amazing she is but you should just see for yourself!

Annemarie was absoultely amazing, professional, and a pleasure to have at our wedding! Thank you so much for such a beautiful ceremony! We wanted something really special, untraditional, and non-religious, while still have it feel spiritial. She achieved just that with our custom ceremony. Every section was specially written for us, incorporating our loved ones and special memories. We really wanted to have an outdoor ceremony, so as the clouds rolled in, Annemarie made sure to get everything started on time and finished before we had any rain! All of the guests left saying it was the *most* beautiful ceremony they have ever seen! Most importantly, it was truly unique and something we will cherish for the rest of our lives. We are so lucky to have found her!!

Paul and I were married in April of 2011. We decided that we wanted a more contemporary ceremony that would be more memorable and crafted more specifically to us as a couple and family. Annemarie crafted a beautiful ceremony with a mix of emotional serious moments and humor, that touched and included not only us but our families and guests as well. Annemarie is a truly gifted officiant, professional, and experienced. She has a true gift, and will tailor your ceremony to your weddings style, size and beliefs. I can’t recommend her with enough enthusiasm to do justice to the phenomenal job she did at our wedding.

When I first started looking for an officiant I was so excited that wedding plans were finally being made but I had NO idea how to pick an officiant. Since my fiance (now husband) and I were not part of any affiliation where someone could marry us, the hunt was on and and online my search began.
I was immediately drawn to and excited about Annemarie because she was able to do a ceremony catered to our values, beliefs (religious or not), and love for one another. She e-mailed me back within minutes of me inquiring more information about her (and it was SO early in the morning!) and we met soon there after.
My fiance and I walked away from our first meeting with Annemarie feeling more in love with one another, excited about our wedding, and confident that Annemarie was the one for us.
From the moment we met her, to the day she married us, and the time that has followed Annemarie has been so caring, enthusiastic, full of joy and love and hope... there are not enough words for me to describe how impressed we were or how happy we were with the pre marital counseling and the wedding ceremony.
Our guests raved about Annemarie during the reception and once we got home. Our guests loved how they got to learn more about my fiance and I, how personal the ceremony felt and how fun Annemarie was. We were told over and over again that our ceremony was THE BEST any of our guests had been to.
The first day we met Annemarie she said, "Your guests may not remember the words you say during your ceremony but they will remember the way they felt during it." And she completely delivered! Our ceremony was romantic, personal, intimate, fun, and the best day of our life.
I can't recommend Annemarie enough!

Annemarie has wonderful energy and earnestness, and she brought that to the ceremony - many people said it was the nicest ceremony they had seen.

I would highly recommend Annemarie to anyone! She is extremely professional, highly organized and genuinely warm. We searched for officiants online on various sites and her reviews were all wonderful, so we decided to meet with her. We did a lot of research beforehand and were already pretty sure she would meet our expectations but she was even better than advertised. She is the perfect person to have in your corner on the biggest day of your life to make sure everything falls into place perfectly. My wife and I both have a hard time letting other people take control of situations for us but we felt 100% comfortable letting Annemarie run our day and she completely delivered! Her process for designing an intimate and personal ceremony is extremely effective. She managed to cover everything we wanted within our ceremony and brought many amazing ideas of her own. She created the perfect ceremony and orchestrated masterfully. All of our family and friends walked away truly inspired and so many people mentioned that it was the most perfect wedding they had ever attended. She also made us feel comfortable and because of her presence we were able to relax and enjoy our beautiful ceremony. It was an absolute pleasure getting to know her and if we ever decide to perform a vow renewal we'll be calling on her again!! Thank you Annemarie for being so passionate about your craft and helping us through the best day of our lives!

We loved Annemarie from our very first visit! It was important for us to find the right fit in our Officiant, someone who we were comfortable with, didn't feel judged by, who appreciated our unconventional relationship and understood our spiritual side. We really wanted to include our daughters, friends and family in our ceremony...to make them feel like active participants and very comfortable. She more than accomplished this and brought joy, humor, spirit and light to our ceremony and we couldn't be happier. The ceremony she helped create was more perfect than I could have imagined! She was also there to answer any questions and kept me on task by reminders on important things that I would have forgotten in the craziness of wedding planning like marriage license, LOL!

Annemarie did an amazing job. We were impressed from the get-go by her efficiency and her professionalism, in addition to her warm demeanor and caring attitude. My husband and I selected a non-denominational officiant because I am Jewish and he is Christian. Annemarie did an outstanding job weaving together both of our faiths. The ceremony was inclusive, warm, caring, humorous, and hopeful - exactly what we requested. In what was the ultimate confirmation that we made the right choice choosing Annemarie, there was a moment during the ceremony where I teared up and was unable to speak. Annemarie put a comforting hand on my shoulder, dropped her voice to match my volume, and finished the "repeat after me" part that way. It was noticed by all of the guests that she was a consummate professional, and I can't recommend her enough. It is obvious that she has done this for a long time, but her experience has honed her skills to the point where she puts people at ease and makes a stressful experience into something loving and memorable. Thanks, Annemarie, for the best day of my life! The wedding was three days ago, so these recollections are very fresh :)

We loved Annemarie! We met with her about a year before our wedding. She impressed us from the beginning. She asked great questions of us during our first meeting and set very clear expectations for her and us. About 4 months before the wedding, Annemarie sent us questionnaires for us to complete - one questionnaire we filled out individually and another together. From there, Annemarie put together our beautiful ceremony. She added the perfect level of sentiment, humor, and kindness that fit us.

On the day of the ceremony, Annemarie was right on time and we did a walk-through with her about an hour before the actual event. She made sure everyone knew what to do and when and we knew we were in good hands. Be prepared though... once Annemarie shows up, everything suddenly moves at lightening speed! She most definitely takes control of the ceremony which is exactly what we needed her to do.

The ceremony itself was perfect. We read through it and were able to provide feedback well in advance but we had so few edits. As mentioned, she added a touch of humor, a touch of sentiment, and created a wonderful memory for us. One of the reasons we liked Annemarie so much is that she also built in a "take away" for us... something that was unique to us which we very much appreciated.

During the ceremony, Annemarie really connected with us but also with our guests. At one point, she stepped out around us to address our parents (she couldn't see them directly because of the set up). We thought that was exactly the right touch at the right time. She ad-libbed the ceremony at a couple of points but in just the right way.

Bottom line is that Annemarie is great! We have absolutely no regrets about selecting her as our officiant and recommend her without hesitation.

We loved Annemarie! We met with her about a year before our wedding. She impressed us from the beginning. She asked great questions of us during our first meeting and set very clear expectations for her and us. About 4 months before the wedding, Annemarie sent us questionnaires for us to complete - one questionnaire we filled out individually and another together. From there, Annemarie put together our beautiful ceremony. She added the perfect level of sentiment, humor, and kindness that fit us.

On the day of the ceremony, Annemarie was right on time and we did a walk-through with her about an hour before the actual event. She made sure everyone knew what to do and when and we knew we were in good hands. Be prepared though... once Annemarie shows up, everything suddenly moves at lightening speed! She most definitely takes control of the ceremony which is exactly what we needed her to do.

The ceremony itself was perfect. We read through it and were able to provide feedback well in advance but we had so few edits. As mentioned, she added a touch of humor, a touch of sentiment, and created a wonderful memory for us. One of the reasons we liked Annemarie so much is that she also built in a "take away" for us... something that was unique to us which we very much appreciated.

Annemarie made our wedding so special and personal. From the moment I met with her, I loved her. She is kind, excited about weddings and knows what she is doing!Throughout the whole process, she was extremly responsive and helpful. We started the process by doing homework by ourselves and as a couple. This helped Anne Marie write such a personal, intimate ceramony that we were able to approve months before the wedding. Our ceramony was beautiful and had quotes from my Mom, best friend and from each other. It was touching, funny and warm.

Annemarie led the rehearsal and was so efficent and on the ball. She handled everything that night and the day of the wedding. She arrived early to the wedding and made sure everyone knew what to do and was ready to go. She was PERFECT in the ceramony, she really made our wedding and set the tone for the day. I can't imagine going through the process without her. Everyone kept commenting on how intimate, warm and perfect the ceramony was because of her. She is truly the best-make sure to include her in your special day!

Annemarie is unbelievable to work with. We had to postpone our initial wedding date due to immigration paperwork and Annemarie was so understanding and accomodating. She has an amazing way of personalizing everything and her smile can make anyones day. How could one not pick her? :) She brought such a warth and ease to the day. As it was a small wedding Annemarie was excellent at getting everything coordinated leading up to the ceremony. She was very professional and approachable to work with. Annemarie feels like a friend and we feel very blessed that she was a big part of our day. Thankx again Annemarie - xoxo Chris & Joey Garland.

My bride and I decided that we wanted an somewhat unconventional wedding in our favorite spot in Seattle; outside and braving whatever weather we might be forced to labor. Annemarie was onboard from the very beginning! (Fortunately our day was beautiful and on the beach!)

She come up with many great ideas and fun things to consider that would make our day even more special than we ever anticipated. She was also very adept at being able to read the nature of what made my bride and i so close to eachother, and she ran with it during our ceremony, adding that "just right" personal touch.

Most of all, Annemarie is FUN! She knows how to keep everything where it should be: a personal, exciting experience that is customized for the couple. I couldn't think of ever going a different route than the one we choose when she officiated our wedding.

If you like the idea of having someone really personalize the wedding, and put a special touch on things, i would highly recommend Annemarie. She really is great at what she does!

Annemarie was the first vendor we hired as we embarked on our wedding planning adventure, and we are SO GLAD we found her! Her calm and professional demeanor, humor, smile, knowledge, and obvious commitment to her craft were present through every moment of the process. And our ceremony? EVERY guest we spoke to remarked how special, unique, warm, elegant, and fun it was. Our day would not have been as special without Annemarie in it. You can't find a better officiant!

We really couldn't have asked for a better officiant. Originally, we had wanted someone who knew us personally. When that didn't work out, we started our search for an officiant. Annemarie was the first person we met with, and also the last. Both me and my husband knew she was perfect for our wedding during our first meeting. The meeting was all about getting to know us as a couple and what we wanted to create the perfect ceremony. Annemarie listened to everything we had envisioned and offered suggestions that made our ceremony even more special. We ended up with a ceremony that was personal and touching with not many dry eyes in the room. Annemarie is well spoken and professional. I would highly recommend her services to any couple.

We knew we wanted it to be special, personal, fun, a memorable, but we didn't know where to go from there. I found Annemarie by a search online. I don't know what good karma I earned to have randomly found this amazing person, but I'm so glad! She was absolutely amazing. Everyone was talking about how beautiful and fun our ceremony was. She really helped us direct our feelings into words to be shared, and I still smile when I think of our ceremony and the things we were able to say. She also used her amazing organizing skills to get everyone together while I was just getting dressed and being a bride. I had a very small wedding, and there were still so many questions from my parents. She was so amazing and taking care of it all. I can not recommend her enough.

She is so lively, energetic and fun. However she also asks that she be "wedding coordinator" for the the hour before the wedding. This is a refreshing selling point. I heard she was telling people to get this we need that etc on the day of.

Her heart is truly in what she does. We love her....

A decision that we are so very happy with, the ceremony she delivered was exactly what we wanted and then some. It was the perfect blend of emotion and humor we hoped for. Many of our guests came up to us after and said what a beautiful memorable ceremony it was. Annemarie is a very kind, thoughtful, energetic person who's love for what she does shines through in every aspect of the ceremony. Our gratitude is boundless Annemarie - our many many thanks for a most beautiful ceremony! Mrs. Diane Lee, Seattle WA

Annemarie is wonderful to work with - she has a joyous energy that flows over to everyone around her, and sets a great tone for the ceremony! And when the big day came, I had totally forgotten everything we had rehearsed and she was just perfect in subtly directing us through the ceremony so that we could just enjoy being in the moment but still do everything as planned. Everyone commented on how much they enjoyed the ceremony which Annemarie had customized for us. In fact, one of our guests would like her to do a renewal of vows ceremony for a future anniversary! If you'd like to pull off the perfect day, having Annemarie as your officiant will be a great start.

If we had a dollar for every guest of ours who said how awesome (their word) our officiant was, we could probably host another reception. That was one of the first things guests said to us after our ceremony.

Annemarie brought such a sense of calm during the ceremony that we were able to focus on hearing the beautiful words she prepared for us and really think about what our ceremony meant to us both. She was a true joy to work with, from our first meeting and the way through the entire process. Will always be grateful to her for all her hard work and the lovely ceremony she created for us. We could not imagine a better experience!

We will gladly recommend Annemarie to anyone who is planning their wedding without hesitation.

Annemarie is a true professional and her experience and enthusiam really come through from the beginning of the process to the end result. When she says not to worry about something, that it will all come together and be fine, or that she will make sure something is taken care of, you can believe her!

She was so well organized at the rehearsal and provided such excellent ideas that made each moment even more treasured. As they say "love is in the details" and Annemarie understands this concept. If you're looking for an officiant who will not stand up, be stuffy and bore your guests through the "I Do's" then this is your gal! Our guests actually enjoyed the ceremony as much as the reception. Thank you is not enough to Annemarie for creating a truly magical day for the two of us and our families!

Annemarie listened to us and our requests and come up with a the most incredible original ceremony for us. Everyone was touched and I have never been to a wedding before where so many people talked about the officiant. It seemed like she knew us. She was able to involve everyone in the moment and for that Chad and I are both ever so grateful. I have already received requests from guests for information to pass along to others on her services. I cannot thank her enough for making the day run so well and making the ceremony something no one will soon forget.

From the moment we met Annemarie we knew our search for an officiant was over!! We were very concerned that we wouldn't be able to find an officiant that we were comfortable with and flexible and creative enough to make a ceremony unique to us...boy were we wrong!!!! She created a ceremony that you would swear was created by a life-long friend who had known us through our whole relationship. Annemarie went above and beyond to create a unique, one-of-a-kind ceremony that truly reflected who we are as a couple. Through our "homework" and email, Annemarie was able to craft what my husband and I would truly call the perfect ceremony. She took the elements of what was most important to us (even our puppies and love letters!!!) and included them in thoughful and amazing ways. Her suggestions were always just that and she left the final decisions up to us. On the day of the wedding she came in and was able to meet with all of our family members and ensure that everyone knew their jobs and places and felt at ease- including myself (bride!!). I cannot imagine our wedding day without her.

After reading all the reviews of Annemarie and having her perform our ceremony, I can truly say that all of the positive, amazing reviews of her are truly accurate. Annemarie was slightly more than we had intended for our budget but my husband and I both agree that after having her perform the wedding- we would have paid almost any price for her!! SHE IS WORTH EVERY CENT AND MORE!!!!

You will not regret hiring Annemarie! She is amazing!!!

Annemarie gets 5 stars from me. She is the consummate professional. From start to finish, she made my fiance and I feel so special, not like another wedding date on her calendar. She customized our ceremony to fit us and gave us the final say in what would be said, and conducted an organized rehearsal and ceremony so I could focus on the task at hand, becoming a wife! Throughout the entire process, I knew I was in good hands and didn't have to worry about a thing. The ceremony was so intimate, even with our 160+ guests, because she really got to the heart of us as a couple. She ran the show like the pro she is and I've heard nothing but wonderful comments from our attendees. Many of our guests have said she's the best officiant they've ever seen. She really knows her stuff. You MUST use Annemarie for your wedding - there's no one like her!

Finding an Officiant wasn't easy. Our church would not marry us and to tell you the truth - we were a bit "freaked" to find somebody we didn't know. We met with three Officiants and then found Annemarie. And then I (Katie) could relax. Our ceremony last weekend was beautiful. Annemarie lead our rehearsal and was with us over an hour beforehand making sure things were in place. I was really nervous and just having her was perfect. And our ceremony? Beautiful. Bryan and I are so happy with Annemarie and offer this glowing recommendation! We're off on our honeymoon this holiday weekend for two weeks - and yes, we'll "do the dance" on the beach!!

Finding an Officiant wasn't easy. Our church would not marry us and to tell you the truth - we were a bit "freaked" to find somebody we didn't know. We met with three Officiants and then found Annemarie. And then I (Katie) could relax. Our ceremony last weekend was beautiful. Annemarie lead our rehearsal and was with us over an hour beforehand making sure things were in place. I was really nervous and just having her was perfect. And our ceremony? Beautiful. Bryan and I are so happy with Annemarie and offer this glowing recommendation! We're off on our honeymoon this holiday weekend for two weeks - and yes, we'll "do the dance" on the beach!!

Annemarie Juhlian was the perfect officiant for our wedding day! She is very professional and knows the wedding timeline very well so we were well prepared for our wedding day with a custom ceremony prepared in advance of the big day.

Annemarie was wonderful at rehearsal making sure we stayed focused on preparing for the ceremony and making sure everyone was comfortable with their part in the ceremony.

We received so many compliments after our ceremony about how personal & touching people thought the ceremony was. Annemarie did an excellent job of incorporating our personalities into our ceremony. Her service is well worth every penny of her fee. We feel very blessed that we found her and she was a part of our wedding ceremony.

Cheers!

Annemarie was the officiant for our August 2nd, 2014, wedding, and she was FANTASTIC! All our guests raved about her.

A couple of things that especially pleased us:
-The amount of input Annemarie had us put in to writing our ceremony was perfect. Not too much (she drafted something great and personal based on information we gave her, it wasn't like we had to write the ceremony ourselves), and not too little (we had plenty of input and choices).
-The day of, Annemarie was able to read the crowd and the situation and change things accordingly. It was blazingly hot that day, and she made the decision (after checking with us!) to cut parts of the ceremony. This was such a life-saver, and showed her experience!

Annemarie is heaven sent. She knew exactly how to incorporate everything that was important to us and she did it in a way that was really representative of our personalities and style (also in a very short timeframe). Honestly, we couldn't have imagined planning and executing the ceremony without her. We knew what things we wanted to have in the wedding ceremony, but couldn't figure out how to weave it together. Annemarie came up with something unique and perfectly fit for us. We got many complements from family and friends on how wonderful it was. We are extremely grateful that Annemarie she took such a beautiful part in our big day.

Annemarie did a fantastic job of piecing together a ceremony that was just perfect for Jason and I. We completed the worksheets she provided and the result was a very personal and intimate ceremony that we loved. I think our guests came away knowing more about who we are as a couple, why we decided to make this commitment to one another and the reasons why we love and appreciate each other.

I cannot say enough about how much we loved Annemarie. She was a blast to work with, and I felt like she really "got" my husband and I and, as such, delivered a ceremony that fit our personalities perfectly. She's also a master organizer, and will take care of all of the logistical details of the ceremony and rehearsal for you - you just need to show up. You will have to fill out some pretty lengthy paperwork for her, but it's not horrible and the results are most definitely worth it. Again, she was very flexible and let us add/remove elements of the ceremony to really make it "ours". She also offers pre-marriage coaching, which my husband and I took advantage of. She's not a license counselor or therapist, but she'll work with you to make sure that you've had all of the conversations with each other you need to have before combining your lives and will refer you to a therapist if it's necessary. We took advantage of it just to make sure we'd covered everything, and the added bonus was that she got to know us a bit better before our ceremony.

It is not possible for me to say enough wonderful things about Annemarie. She simply made my wedding day unforgettable. It was so much more than just a wedding ceremony. We laughed, we cried. We had humor and depth. It was so truthful and loving and so perfectly our story. Even being the perfectionist that I am, I could not have written a better ceremony. And from the minute we first spoke to well after the wedding she was always pleasant, kind, and completely diligent. She put me at ease and melted my worries.

I have been to weddings that were boring and tired. Mine was definitely not one of them. This will be one of the most important moments in your life, so you might as well not fall asleep for it :) She will truly amaze you. Thank you, Annemarie!

You'll get everything you pay for and more!!!

My husband and I connected with Annemarie immediately when we first met her. We decided to do pre-marriage coaching with Annemarie (which I also highly recommend for numerous reasons), and over the course of three 1-hour sessions, we became more comfortable with her and got to know her better.

Annemarie is a dream to work with - she is professional, capable, warm, generous, and empathetic. She has a wealth of experience and does not hesitate to share or offer her advice. She was kind enough to go over our "day-of" schedule to make sure we were on track. On our wedding day, she went above and beyond typical officiant duties and helped facilitate our guest seating, organization and overall set-up of our ceremony. Our wedding ceremony went off beautifully and John and I felt so comfortable up there with our "big sister" Annemarie.

It is truly a pleasure working with Annemarie. If we're still in the Seattle area longterm, we hope to renew our vows with Annemarie some time in the future!

I thought is was very nice that Annemarie asks her clients to answer questions and tell their story about their relationship. This made it feel like we weren't just being married by anyon. From our story she wrote very personal vows for us, which are now framed in our home.
A trial run makes a bride feel more comfortable before the big day, so I think that in the price a rehearsal should be included.
Annemarie did a great job at coordinating the bridal party and starting the ceremony on time. She spoke beautifully and from the heart. All of our guests continue to talk about our beautiful ceremony. l

We couldn't get married in our church due to annulment issues but wanted something that honored the spiritual and personal without offending our beliefs or our families so we chose an officiant that was without a specific faith and not just a judge, and a rather pricey one! Annemarie certainly attempted to personalize as much as possible for the ceremony. We filled out extensive worksheets and had due dates but she was quite responsive and flexible about those with my very busy husband which he was grateful for. She was not flexible with our rehearsal time and that was difficult because everyone from out of town, taking time off of work and two of our participants own their own businesses. She was great about including my 9 year old stepson without making him feel uncomfortable while still feeling like he had a role and was pleased with himself and us for it. The downside is she was aggressively argumentative with us about what we wanted from the ceremony and even things out of her realm, like the photos. More importantly, in the weeks after the ceremony we received a number of complaints from our guests that she had accused them of stealing her purse. We had the entire venue reserved for our wedding so it was a private party. No one stole anything. One guest had simply moved her purse to the more secure family location believing it did in fact belong to a family member. My guests were so horrified that no one told me day of and I have since spent time apologizing to many of my guests. I recommend screening thoroughly for a good officiant.

Annemarie Juhlian, Wedding Officiant (Non-Denominational) & Minister - Let's Get You So Married! responded with the following comments:

Emily - I care deeply in every way about you and all my couples. Delivering a one-of-a-kind, non-judgmental and beautiful ceremony is what I do, and thank you for acknowledging that I was able to do this and include your young stepson in a special way. The group photo: knowing your venue so well, I was concerned for the safety of all high-heeled ladies going up and down steel grate stairs that I knew lay ahead. I wanted to prevent injury or fall by suggesting a lovely, safer area for your post-ceremony group photo. For any sense you had that I was pushing too hard on this, my sincere apology. And yes, I was alarmed when my purse was gone, and I do recall raising my voice over the small group of people in the foyer who were not yet downstairs for the group photo to ask if someone had seen/moved it. I never accused anyone of stealing nor am I aggressive in action or argumentative in demeanor. Please know that I take everything to heart and reflect on all of it. Best wishes to you, your husband and stepson as you move forward in life as a new family.
