Brilliant! - An Eventective User from Swansea, UK

Annie was amazing throughout the whole process. We eloped from the UK to marry in NYC and Annie helped us the whole way. On the day we were truly blown away with how she spoke and the words she delivered. She is genuinely warm and caring and really made us feel like we could be truly present in the moment. We can’t thank Annie enough for being a huge part in helping our day be as memorable and meaningful as it was

So Grateful for a Beautiful Experience - An Eventective User from New York, NY

We arranged a "Just Sign Our License" appointment with Rev. Annie, and she truly went above and beyond our expectations. We thought it would be a quick, in-and-out 30-minute situation, but Rev. Annie made the entire experience so personal and beautiful. We ended up bringing our rings even though we weren't sure if Rev. Annie would be able to incorporate that into this basic appointment, but she happily helped guide the flow of the meeting to allow us to have a special moment to exchange our rings. We could not be more grateful for the entire experience that Rev. Annie provided for us! Thank you so much, Rev. Annie!

Cannot Recommend Rev. Annie Enough! - An Eventective User from New York City

Getting married in the time of Covid is difficult — but choosing your officiant doesn't have to be. Rev. Annie helped us navigate the changing New York City guidelines with ease, so we were able to enjoy a beautiful Central Park wedding ceremony in early June 2021. Rev. Annie's attention to detail and thoughtful care made the whole process way less daunting than my husband and I could have ever imagined. Because Rev. Annie had walked us through everything beforehand (on Zoom and via email), my husband and I felt calm on the day of our wedding and were able to spend time enjoying with friends and family instead of worrying about the details. Rev. Annie helped us create a personal, intimate ceremony that reflected my husband and I as a couple while still retaining many traditional elements. My husband wanted to incorporate several traditions from the Church of England (as many of his family members could not travel from the UK due to Covid restrictions) and Rev. Annie incorporated these elements while balancing my own wants for a more modern ceremony. In the end, we had a beautiful, personalized wedding ceremony that many of our guests complimented in the days and weeks afterwards. I don't think there was a dry eye in sight! We truly cannot recommend Rev. Annie enough.

Best Zoom Wedding - An Eventective User from Astoria, NY

My partner found Annie in a Reddit thread and picked her out as the "one person giving kind and helpful responses" regarding Zoom weddings in NY. We were having trouble finding an officiant who knew the ins and outs of Project Cupid Zoom weddings and reached out to see if she was the answer. She was! She reached out the same day we messaged to touch base and discuss what we needed. Annie has performed over 200 zoom weddings since March and knows exactly how to guide couples and complete the ceremony according to Project Cupid guidelines. We opted for the shorter legal signing service and were pleasantly surprised to find that she still made it meaningful and special. Our witnesses want her to perform our actual wedding one day! Annie went above and beyond our expectation and we really cannot say enough great things about her. She is warm, kind, and made this unknown pandemic world process simple. Thank you, Annie!

Perfect Wedding Officiant - An Eventective User from bayside, ny

Rev. Annie was incredible. We spoke with her by phone and gave her a brief overview of how we met and our religious background. We had a small ceremony of 25 people. There wasn't a dry eye as we exchanged our vows. She touched everyone's hearts, especially ours, with her tenderness and love. Afterward, she joined us for lunch and mingled with our guests. Our guests kept telling us how wonderful and sincere she was. And that it was the best ceremony they had been to. We would definetly reccommend her for weddings and renewing vows. We were truly blessed by choosing Rev. Annie!
