Hi, I’m Rev. Annie, ordained Interfaith Minister & licensed Wedding Officiant in New York City
for ALL couples. I am proud to celebrate Marriage Equality!

I have over 10 yrs of experience in preparing and celebrating weddings,
and have now officiated over 1,000 ceremonies all over NYC and surrounding areas, as well as destination weddings. I love what I do!

It's my pleasure to create your civil, spiritual, non-denominational
or relgious ceremony, including the personal, cultural, and
romantic influences that make your ceremony meaningful to you.

I have performed weddings in Central Park, hotel suites, chapels,
private homes, rooftops, reception halls, restaurants and chartered cruises.
I have done ceremonies at the beach, on the Brooklyn Bridge
and in a helicopter over Manhattan. It's your dream and your day...
I love to travel, I'll go anywhere you go.

Whether you are eloping or inviting everyone you know,
I am just as comfortable officiating a small, intimate service
as I am in front of a large group of family and friends.

Every couple I meet, every ceremony I celebrate, is special and memorable.
I am confident, at ease, and at peace on your wedding day--
and I hope to allow you to feel the same way about your ceremony--
relaxed, ready, and truly present to enjoy and celebrate!

INFO FOR OFFICIANT

What officiant services do you provide?
Civil Union, Interfaith Ceremony, Non-religious Ceremony, Single Religion Ceremony
Can you accommodate the hearing impaired?
No
Are you willing to perform a ceremony at a non-religious site?
Absolutely! Some of my favorite weddings have been in Central Park, restaurants, hotels, on the beach...and even in a helicopter!
What is your attire for the ceremony?
I will dress in a ministerial robe or a suit--whatever represents your style and makes you feel more comfortable.
Are you flexible in the wording used throughout the ceremony, including the vows?
Yes. I will customize your ceremony to represent your beliefs and values. There are many different ways of saying your vows, from traditional to creative, "repeat after me" or in your own words. Let's discuss!
Do you allow the couple to write their own vows, if desired?
Certainly, I encourage personalization and creativity in ceremonies. In addition I keep a "file" of suggested vows you can refer to and draw from for ideas.
Do you have a list of readings pre-selected, from which the couple must choose?
I have no required readings. I am happy to share with you my favorite readings, and point you in the right directions to find your own as well.
How long are your ceremonies?
The length of the ceremony is determined by the couple--"short and sweet" is about 15min. When we add readings, rituals, processions--it may be up to 30min. (or longer).
Do you require that premarital counseling be done?
No. I trust you have given this process great thought. If you choose to have pre-martial counseling before your wedding, I am available. Let's talk.
Are you willing to perform pre-ceremony rehearsals?
I do not require a rehearsal before my weddings, unless you feel that it is absolutely necessary. We will review the "blocking" and stage directions in advance, you will know exactly where to stand, what to do, and what to expect.

We travelled from Scotland to get married in New York and chose Rev Annie to be our officiant based on the number of positive reviews we had read about her. We could not have asked for a better wedding officiant! In the lead up to the wedding, Annie maintained excellent communication with us and made any adjustments with regards to our ceremony as we requested. She answered our questions in a timely and supportive manner and kept in contact with us right up until the point of the wedding. The ceremony and the delivery of it exceeded our expectations. It was thoughtful, sincere, and compassionate, and it included the right amount of laughter. Annie is extremely approachable and makes an effort to get to know you and your guests. Everyone at the wedding commented on not only how lovely the ceremony was, but also how Annie was able to relax and put everyone at ease. We could not have been happier regarding Annie’s professionalism and her kindness towards us and we know we have now made a very dear friend in New York. Thanks again for making our day so memorable.

My husband and I got married married in New York. And despite the fact that we live in Florida, Rev Annie was able to get to know us via email and phone calls. She was able to capture our sentiments and created a beautiful ceremony. We found her through a recommendation of a friend and could not have made a better choice. She is a genuinely kind and joyful person.

Reverend Annie was great. My husband and I were VERY nervous going into the ceremony, but she was calm and soothing. She took us through the ceremony alone, and that really put our minds at ease. During the ceremony she was thoughtful and poised, and really verbalized what we wanted people to know about our union. She was also very supportive leading up to the big day, with thoughtful texts and voicemails.

We cannot say enough good things about Rev. Annie. In addition to being the embodiment of non-denominational spirituality that we were looking for in an officiant, she is also incredibly professional, punctual, helpful, caring, calming....the list could go on and on. She helped us to build a ceremony that truly represented who we are as a couple and the love that we have for one another, and did so in an incredibly patient manner despite us constantly making changes. She was calm yet detail oriented & organized while leading our rehearsal and during the nerve-wracking period prior to the ceremony; knowing she was there really helped to put our minds at ease. Our fairly religious families were initially a bit hesitant about a non-denominational wedding, but commented afterwards that it was the most beautiful, spiritual ceremony they had ever witnessed, and we feel the same. She is also just an incredibly interesting person who was fun to talk to and to get to know. Thanks, Rev. Annie - you're the best!

Amazing - what a find! We were from out of town but found Annie via a referral. It was like finding a lost part of our soul. She instantly became a part of our family from the first skype meeting! Many folks commented after the ceremony about how amazing she was and inquired about how many years we had known her. She incorporated our life, family and spirituality into the perfect ceremony. We met with her several times prior both on skype and in person and she guided us through the process. She incorporated our feedback and patiently took on multiple iterations to get us to OUR ceremony. Thrilled beyond words that she was a part of our ceremony and now forever a part of our lives.

Rev. Annie is one of the most amazing people we have ever met! She has one of the kindest and sweetest spirits we have ever been fortunate enough to be around. Although we may have had cold hands in Central Park in November we had warm hearts because she made sure our day was incredibly memorable, special, and specific to us. All of our guests commented that the ceremony that Rev. Annie performed was the most beautiful and "couple specific" wedding ceremony they have ever heard. There was not anything generic about the ceremony she created. We are so very thankful that we had Rev. Annie perform our ceremony! She is truly one of a kind and the perfect person to officiate any and couple’s wedding!!!

Our wedding day was perfect and one we will remember for the rest of our lives thanks to Reverend Annie. After a very last minute email request seeking Annie's services to officiate our wedding with just 5 days notice, we were very happy and relieved to receive her prompt and enthusiastic reply stating that she was able to accommodate us, despite having another wedding booked earlier on the same day. You would not know that she had just arrived from another wedding, because Annie was completely composed and professional and was able to coordinate our small party without any pre-discussion or planning and set a beautiful mood and ceremony. We provided Annie with some details about ourselves two days before the ceremony, and Annie was able to craft this information into a very personal and touching ceremony that she delivered with her joyous, friendly manner. Her delivery of the ceremony was the greatest surprise and brought out the emotion in us both and elevated our wedding day to something that was incredibly special. Annie made everything straightforward, provided advice and took care of all the official paper work. I highly recommend Annie and thank her for making our day truly memorable.

It was a pleasure having Annie officiate our wedding. Leading up to our big day, Annie was very reassuring and comforting as she navigated us through both the planning process and the official legal paperwork we needed to do.

Right before we walked down the aisle, Annie gave each of us a separate pep talk reminding us why we were there, not to be nervous, and some last minute tips.

At the ceremony, her words were beautiful and her emotions were genuine. We had SO many of our friends and family tell us after the ceremony and even weeks later that they thought the ceremony was amazing and Annie was great.

Annie made our wedding so incredibly special. We couldn't recommend her any more highly.
