Annie will make it meaningful & personalized beyond your wildest expectations
Annie Matan is a gifted orator, mood creator, and spiritual leader. Her ceremony for our wedding was a highlight not just for my partner and me but for our entire community of well-wishers and witnesses. She personalized her ceremony to our individual & coupled qualities and integrated our religious backgrounds and heritage in a profoundly meaningful way. I cannot recommend Annie highly enough for your ceremony. Congratulations! On getting married, and finding Annie!Sent on 27/02/2021

Meaningful, creative, thoughtful
Annie was a life-saver for us, crafting a thoughtful, personalized, and beautiful ceremony with less than two weeks' notice. She was comfortable bridging our desire for a non-traditional wedding with the needs of some of our guests to see recognizable elements and symbols. Many people told us it was the best wedding they had ever attended. Can't recommend her highly enough.Sent on 13/09/2021
