Everyone in the wedding can agree on how beautiful the ceremony was – the words were meaningful and sincere. We are so blessed to have Anne officiate the wedding. She is very professional, calm, kind and detailed oriented. She is amazing! I love how she asked to pose for the pictures during singing and also took some group pictures.

I would choose her again - An Eventective User

Ms. Houston is very professional but it felt very casual with her soft, nurturing and helpful tone even on her emails. Imagine that! She walk us through the process from applying for a Marriage License to obtaining the Marriage Certificate . Our intention were to be married in the City Hall BUT thanks to the lock down we were able to have a fantastic ceremony that she allowed us to help create and her fantastic personality makes us want to renew our vows more often.

Touching Ceremony - An Eventective User from Mississauga

Anne married us over the weekend in the most beautiful and touching ceremony. Everyone commented on how meaningful it was and specific to us. Anne gave us the option of a special "ring ceremony" where we pass our rings at the beginning of the ceremony to be blessed by the people there before we put them on. It was lovely and perfect and I can't recommend her enough.

The perfect officiant for our day! - An Eventective User from Toronto, ON

Anne was amazing. She was very knowledgeable and helped guide us through every step of the process. She made helpful suggestions when needed, and we had a flawless ceremony. Anne was also a calming, which was perfect for a somewhat high-strung bride! It was important to us that we have a non-denominational ceremony held by someone who also performed marriages for LGBTQ couples, and Anne does both! I had a good feeling about her right away, and I'm so glad I did because she was amazing.

Such a professional and personable officiant - An Eventective User from Whitby, ON

Wedding days are always chaotic but Anne handled everything in a professional manner and made the entire ceremony run smoothly. Our experience with her was fantastic from the start as she is really easy to talk to and wants to get to know you and what you are comfortable with to make your dream wedding day. She even arrived earlier than expected to coordinate with the DJ and photographer to make everything work. I couldn't have chosen anyone better to officiant our wedding.

The perfect officiant you'd want at your wedding! - An Eventective User from Scarborough, Ontario

Anne was amazing. We asked for legal signing service. We paid for a wedding chamber and Anne offered to do a small ceremony, no religion with a sweet speech that talk about love, life and how you should be kind to one another. She even bought music for us and played while she was giving the speech in front of our family and friends. By the end of it, Anne helped us take pictures. Our day went better than expected and we were very pleased with Anne. Anne is a very experienced officiant. She is quick on her feet and tries her best to make sure that your day will be a memorable one. She is definitely someone you can count to ensure your day is as smooth as it can be. I was able to email and confirm what the next steps were even after the wedding ceremony. I'd recommend her to anyone that asks!

Magical Ceremony with Anne Houston - An Eventective User from Toronto, ON

Anne led a beautifully relaxing waterfront ceremony for us back on July 30, 2016. She did a wonderful job; very easy to communicate with to pick your readings and speaks eloquently. We noticed that Anne makes sure to not rush you in the months to come as she is aware of how busy those times are and we very much appreciated that. She met with us at a time mutually convenient and was very punctual and supportive at your ceremony - she even took a ferry to our Toronto Island location with ease! We can't thank you enough Anne; everything came together so perfectly. We would highly recommend her services - we will cherish our memories of our special day, forever. With Gratitude, Lauren and Jonathan Baird
