Congratulations! You're tying the knot!

Romantically simple or wildly creative, you want your wedding to be an expression of the two of you; your dreams and your ideas of what is beautiful. As your Justice of the Peace, I will work with you to craft a ceremony that reflects your relationship and the partnership you are building. Whether it's a formal gathering or casual party, I can help make your wedding a memorable and meaningful event.

I look forward to hearing from you and being a part of your special day!

INFO FOR OFFICIANT

What officiant services do you provide?
Civil Union, Interfaith Ceremony, Non-religious Ceremony, Single Religion Ceremony
What religious affiliations do you serve?
Agnostic, Baha'i Faith, Buddhist, Christian (no denomination), Christian - Anglican, Christian - Baptist, Christian - Catholic, Christian - Episcopalian, Christian - Lutheran, Christian - Methodist, Christian - Mormon, Christian - Orthodox, Christian - Presbyterian, Christian - Quaker, Evangelical, Hindu, Islam, Jainism, Jewish, Muslim, Shinto, Sikhism, Taoist
Can you accommodate the hearing impaired?
Yes
Are you willing to perform a ceremony at a non-religious site?
I have had the pleasure of performing ceremonies in many venues and under different circumstances. Atop a stone arch bridge, floating on a lakeside dock, aloft in a hot air balloon, up a ski lift, beside a fireplace in a cozy inn... Your choice of site sets the tone and can be as inspired and adventurous as you like!
What is your attire for the ceremony?
I will consult with you regarding suitable attire and complimentary colors. Depending on the degree of formality, I might suggest a black judicial robe with a white crocheted lace collar or silk stole.
Are you flexible in the wording used throughout the ceremony, including the vows?
Absolutely! I will provide you with samples and guidance but the format of the ceremony and choice of vows are entirely your own.
Do you allow the couple to write their own vows, if desired?
Penning your own wedding vows is a wonderful way to personalize your ceremony! It’s like writing poetry, public speaking, and having the deepest conversation of your life all at once. If you choose to write your own vows, I will help guide you through the process.
Do you have a list of readings pre-selected, from which the couple must choose?
I provide examples but you are free to use (or not) any reading, song, or rite you like. Doing so can be a meaningful way to include friends and family members in your ceremony.
How long are your ceremonies?
Ceremony lengths vary from short-and-sweet 'I do's to elaborate hand-fastings. On average, most ceremonies are about 15-20 minutes, beginning to end. (The shortest was 3 minutes between passing thundershowers; the longest was 45 minutes and included several readings and musical interludes.)
Are you willing to perform pre-ceremony rehearsals?
Yes, and, while not mandatory, I strongly recommend a pre-ceremony rehearsal if you have a large wedding party, complex ceremony, or include family members, small children, pets, or friends.
Do you supply a sound system?
As a former school teacher, I have not found it necessary to supply an amplifier. However, I am happy to use a sound system if one is offered.

Ann was great! She was able to help walk us through the marriage license application process and provided very helpful examples and materials when we wanted to write our own ceremony. She had great suggestions for revisions, but allowed us to make it really personalized. She also was willing to do a handfasting for us, in addition to exchange of rings. I loved how she got everyone organized and feeling relaxed at the rehearsal. She was awesome. I wouldn't have changed a thing!

My husband & I hired Anne Poole to be our JP for our wedding at Pats Peak in September. She was always so responsive and a delight to talk to. She was on a list of preferred vendors through Pats Peak and that is how we came in contact with her. I knew that I would not be able to say my own vows without becoming incredibly emotional but I wanted to have a say in the wording and flow of the ceremony. I am an English major and so this really meant a lot to me. Anne was so helpful with giving me suggestions and proofreading my selections along the way. She was open to anything we wanted to add into our ceremony and never made me feel like this was her thing and not mine.

My husband & I ended up moving up our wedding date to start a family. I contacted Anne about our situation and she was very accommodating to the changes we wanted to make, even though things were on much shorted notice and further out of her travel area. She was always so easy to talk to and very professional. We didn't actually meet her until the day of our wedding and I don't regret a minute of it. I knew from the very beginning that I could put my faith in her and that she would help us get through this and I was right! She did an amazing job and got us through! I would recommend Anne to anyone looking for a very low key officiant who is personable and open to anything.

Ann was amazingly helpful in planning our ceremony! We had no idea where to start and Ann pointed us in the right direction! Everytime I emailed or called her with questions or asking for help, she responded right away and had lots of great ideas! She was flexible when we needed a face to face meeting. She is so friendly and warm!

Ann was lovely to work with. We both have a very busy work schedule and she was fine meeting with us via the phone late at night on weeknights and Sundays. She also provided nice instructions on how to apply for our license and had a lot of nice suggestions for the ceremony. Ann also charged the most reasonable price of all of the officiants I came across in my searches.

Ann was very down to earth and straight forward. She has a very calming presence which was critical on the big day. She is the type of person you feel like you have known forever. She helped us create a beautiful ceremony and did a wonderful job marrying us. I highly recommend her!
