I am an ordained rabbi, chaplain, and interfaith minister.

I believe that love is amazing and knows no boundaries. I honor the love and commitment between two people regardless of labels.

Each ceremony is created to honor the sacred coupling of the individuals with whom I work. Each ceremony is crafted to meet their dreams and to celebrate their love.

I can co-officiate, or work solo incorporating various faiths.

Nature is a beautiful place for weddings, but I obviously celebrate weddings in synagogue, church or hotel. Anyplace you desire. I will to travel to your destination.

Let's make memories and dreams come true!

Shalom and Namaste. Read less

Can you accommodate the hearing impaired?
No
Are you willing to perform a ceremony at a non-religious site?
Yes. I will perform a ceremony almost anywhere.

I usually wear a white robe and tallit; for beach weddings, if the couple prefers, I will dress without the robe. I am flexible and work with the couple to coordinate my attire with the nature of the wedding.
Are you flexible in the wording used throughout the ceremony, including the vows?

Do you allow the couple to write their own vows, if desired?
Certainly.

How long are your ceremonies?
Most of my ceremonies are 15 to 20 minutes, depending upon what the couple wants.
Do you require that premarital counseling be done?
I do not require this; but I do get to know the couple prior to the wedding and as we talk, I may give them advice.
Are you willing to perform pre-ceremony rehearsals?
Yes - the fee is extra for rehearsal attendance.
Do you supply a sound system?
no.

Rabbi Ann went above and beyond for my interfaith wedding. My husband is Jewish and I'm Catholic so we used Rabbi Ann White and Pastor Dean Ryder. They worked great together. Rabbi Ann was open to how we wanted to do the ceremony. She offered suggestions when we needed it but allowed us to give our input. She truly designed our ceremony for us and everyone loved it. She was a joy to work with and was extremely kind and patient. I would strongly recommend her to anyone.

Ann was wonderful! Leading up to the big day she could read my stress level through the emails I sent and always responded in a way which brought me back to center. I was immediately drawn to Ann when I found her website, and our first meeting together confirmed my feelings. She invited my fiancé and I to her house to meet with her and to discuss our vision before we even gave her a down payment. She wanted us to be comfortable with her and she made it very easy. She listened as we described how we wanted to bring our two different backgrounds together in a not so traditional ceremony and she shared her insights, thoughts and experiences with us in order to create the perfect ceremony just for us. It could not have gone any better. I am so grateful for Ann, she was influential in making our day perfect! I would not hesitate to recommend Ann as a wedding officiant, a friend, teacher and an overall loving, caring and supportive human being. Thank you, Ann!

Rabbi Ann performed a beautiful beachside Ketubah signing ceremony for us the day before our civil ceremony which was officiated by my brother. This was a wonderful religious kickoff to a weekend of events. Only our immediate family was invited to attend, and Rabbi Ann's warm, spiritual, inviting, open, service made every feel comfortable, no matter their own level of religious practice.
We met with Rabbi Ann on two separate occasions before the actual event, and it was great to get to know her, and her us, before the actual Ketubah signing. She catered the service to what we wanted, and added plenty of her own flair as well. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Rabbi Ann for a Ketubah signing or wedding to anyone else looking for the perfect balance of religion and spirituality.

Ann was amazing. She captured the personalities and spirit of my husband and I. Her ceremony was perfect and I couldn't have asked for a better officiant! She spoke from the heart. Every single guest of ours thought she was great and we got so many compliments about her and the ceremony. I cannot recommend her enough!

Rabbi Ann was the most thoughtful and thorough officiant and made our wedding experience absolutely perfect. She really takes the time to get to know the couple as individuals and creates the most personal and heartfelt ceremony. Rabbi Ann also lead our ketubah signing and Shabbat service at the rehearsal dinner. Even though many guests were not Jewish, we recieved endless compliments about how much they enjoyed the ceremony. I am forever grateful to Rabbi Ann and would highly recommend her to all of my friends, family and fellow brides!

My son and daughter-in-law's wedding was so meaningful and special. Rabbi Ann touched the hearts of both families so deeply. The Ketubah service brought tears to our eyes and deep meaning to the bride and groom and their families. We all thank Rabbi Ann from the bottom of our hearts. Then the following day Rabbi Ann co-officated a beautiful ceremony and everyone attending felt her warmth. Rabbi Ann is true gift.

Simply put, Ann's services and attention to detail is amazing! She successfully captured the essence of both my husband and I as individuals and also as a couple. She made sure to blend parts of both of our religions (jewish and christian) into one seamless ceremony...where you couldn't feel a strict divide. We received countless positive comments on how beautiful and personal the ceremony was and how they loved how we pulled from both religions. Ann was a pleasure to work with...she had so many great ideas, combined it with out desires and was very prompt with responses/communication. We would highly reccomend Ann's services to anyone getting married, ESPECIALLY if they are an interfaith marraige because she performs those so well. Ann, we appreciate your hard work and openness to making the service about US. I'm sooo glad we googled and found you online! ;-)

Rabbi Ann did an absolutely beautiful job officiating my wedding. The end product couldn't have been better, truly a perfect ceremony. I am Jewish and my husband is non-religious, so she was very flexible with us, allowing us to customize the ceremony with only the Jewish aspects we wanted to include and making sure we were comfortable with everything. She got to know us and picked a reading that was perfect for our relationship. We got so many compliments on the ceremony. Wonderful experience.

Words cannot begin to describe the gratitude that I have for Rabbi Ann. Rabbi Ann took the time to get to know my husband & I long before our wedding day. She helped us plan the absolute perfect ceremony. The warmth & love in her voice put us at ease from the planning process through the end of the ceremony. She brought chills & tears to my guests with the beauty in the words she spoke. She filled the room with a certain presence that no other possibly could. I love her for what she has given to us.

My husband and I had an extremely enjoyable experience working with Rabbi Ann. From our very first meeting, we knew that Ann was the right Rabbi for us. She worked with us on creating a very personal and spiritual ceremony. There was not a dry eye in the house!

Rabbi Ann worked so well with us. There were many personal details we wanted to include, like the handmade chuppah, friends playing music to start off the ceremony, and even the proper procession choreography for divorced parents and their families. The kettubah ceremony was beautiful and impactful.

We can't thank Rabbi Ann enough for everything she had done. She went above and beyond to assure that all eyes were on us on our special day. We look forward to growing our relationship with her as we grow our family.

I would like to write my review as a letter to Ann:

Dear Ann,

My husband and I knew we wanted a spiritual ceremony that was not religious, but we were not sure how we were going to make that happen. I was worried that we wouldn't find the right person who could understand the kind of ceremony we wanted to create. Luckily, we met you. You helped us plan the perfect ceremony for us. You listened to us. You never judged. You only took what we wanted and made it so. What was especially memorable for me was your warmth toward our families during the rehearsal and during the time prior to our ceremony. You helped my mom feel at ease. You were outgoing and introduced yourself to people which took a lot of pressure off of me. Thank you for everything you did with us and for us.

All the best,
Mel

Rabbi Ann was a true delight to work with. She took a genuine interest in my husband and I as a couple, in order to make sure our wedding was as personal as possible.

While my husband and I are both Jewish, I liked the fact that Rabbi Ann did a lot of interfaith weddings--it was important to me that not everything was by the book if I didn't want it to be. She did anything we wanted for the ceremony, and more importantly, didn't do anything we DIDN'T want to do. There was no right or wrong with her when it came to planning the religious aspects of my ceremony. She was extremely flexible.

Also, when we needed help with ordering our Ketubah online, she was a great help with technical questions.

I am really glad that my husband found Rabbi Ann online when we were planning a destination wedding from afar. We didn't meet her until the night before (at the rehearsal), but when we did meet it felt like I had already known her so well.

Also, I'd like to note, that while I had a wedding coordinator running my rehearsal at the venue, she still made herself available to be a part of the rehearsal to make sure that everything would go smooth for the real thing.
