    Loved Anna!

    She was great and personable. She coordinated the ceremony with us months ahead of time and gave us lots of options to choose from. She shared our love story too. It was perfect and geared perfectly towards my husband and I. Highly recommend!

    At the Altar's reply:

    Hi Jennifer,
    Thank you for your kind words. The best part of the ceremony for me is telling your love story. I enjoy the process: interviewing the couple and asking them questions to flush out the story and then taking that information and turning it into a story. Not just any story, their love story. It's what makes the ceremony tremendous and what everyone comments on afterward.
    Thank you for trusting me with your love story. I wish you all the best!

    Anna is great!

    Anna is incredibly sweet and was able to help us share our story with our guests. She is very personable, and responsive when you have questions, or need to make changes or edits to your ceremony outline. Would recommend her services ☺

    Lovely Officiant

    We are so happy we chose Anna to officiate our wedding! She took the time to get to know us and learn about our love story before the wedding so she could write a thoughtful and personalized ceremony for us. She was always kind and professional, and was very knowledgeable and helpful with the process of obtaining our marriage licence/certificate. We would definitely recommend her!!

    At the Altar's reply:

    Thank you Cierra for the wonderful review. It was a pleasure meeting your family. They made me feel like family. Tyler's mom offered me some seeds from her fabulous snap dragons. His dad gave me a lesson on how to build an arbour using tree branches. As an avid gardner, I was so touched that they took the time to talk about 'gardening stuff" on what was a very busy day for them. Then when I met you and Tyler for the first time and saw what a sweet couple you were, I knew that this ceremony was going to be special! I wish you and Tyler a wonderful life together.

    Anna was wonderful!

    We were so pleased that we chose Anna to be our officiant. Starting out, we were not totally sure what we were looking for in our ceremony. Anna took us through many options of flow, and gave us a selection of options for each portion. She took the time to get to know us, and wrote a very personal ceremony. She was incredibly kind and professional, and the ceremony was perfect.

    At the Altar's reply:

    Thank you Brenna for your kind words. It was a pleasure being a part of your special day and getting to know you and Andrew and meeting your families. Everyone was so excited and eager to make your day perfect. Especially the little ones who did an amazing job carrying up the rings and throwing flower petals. I wish you and Andrew all the best!

    Lovely to work with !

    Amidst the pandemic, my partner and I had on a whim decided to move forward with getting married in a smaller ceremony. Anna was very accommodating with working for us on such a short timeline. Even though it wasn't the big celebration we had originally planned for, Anna make the ceremony very intimate, thoughtful, and meaningful. It was beautiful. My partner and I were delighted that Anna was able to be part of our special day. Thank you Anna ! - Joyce

    Hunking Wedding

    Shawn and I had an outdoor farm wedding in August 2019. Anna spent time getting to know us and she custom made our ceremony. Words cannot explain how beautiful it was! Our family and friends are still talking about it!
    Thank You Anna for making our wedding day memorable and more than we could ever imagine xo
