Anna is the best

10/10 would recommend!!! Anna Santarossa was personable, professional, and overall amazing. She put life into the ceremony and our friends and family are STILL talking about her. She adds humor and love into everything and is willing to work with any request put her way. We were so lucky to have found Anna. Prior to our wedding, she had conversations with us to get to know us further and answered any questions we had. On the day of the wedding, she was prompt and everything we could have asked for! She kept the ceremony light and had our guests laughing which we loved! She also added a few personal touches about us. We continue to get compliments from our guests on how incredible Anna was. You're not doing it right if you aren't getting married by Anna as your Wedding Officiant!!! We were so lucky to have found her! Thank you Anna, that was an incredible job. Emily&Eoin

Knew She Was the One to Marry the One

Anna was upfront eager and helpful from the first moment of contact. She explained the nuances of the ceremony in a meet and greet phone call which provide a degree of education we really appreciated. She was provided useful info on the role of different individuals involved with ceremony and the when of obtaining a marriage license. She also is very focused about not being in the way of the key intimate moments of a ceremony that you don't want an officiant in the back of your forever photos.

Would definitely recommend!

Anna was very responsive and professional! Her readings on the day of were romantic and tasteful and I found that her prices were very fair. She also coordinated with my photographer for the first kiss at the altar photo which I really appreciated! If you have any special requests for your vows or ceremony definitely reach out to her as she is quite accommodating!

Perfect Service!

We were so happy with Anna officiating our wedding! She was responsive, flexible and so considerate! She made sure that everything went smoothly, she explained everything to us along the way and she even included our daughter with a fake signing for her!

Super sweet ceremony

I would highly recommend Anna to anyone who's looking for an officiant that's both professional as well as incredibly approachable. We had a mini-ceremony prior to our destination wedding and I couldn't imagine it to be sweeter!

There are no words....BOOK HER NOW

Anna was absolutely incredible. So detailed, so kind and most importantly so talented. She made sure to take our love story and share it at our ceremony in the most beautiful way, watch out Nicholas Sparks...

In all seriousness, Anna was so helpful and knowledgeable. We had never been to a ceremony outside of the church so we really had no idea what we were doing or what to expect. Anna walked us through the entire process and helped us to create the ceremony of a lifetime. She went above and beyond to sit down with us and handcraft the day, helped with information on how and where to get our marriage certificate and even went out of her way to explain how to file our paper work.

We love you Anna!! You made our day unforgettable.

Anna does not disappoint!

Anna was amazing to work with! After our initial discussion with Anna we knew we had the perfect officiant. She worked with us to create the perfect ceremony and our guests were blown away with how beautiful it was! She takes pride in her work and you can tell when she officiates that she is prepared. She was very responsive and professional. It was a pleasure working with Anna and having her apart of our day!
