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

Unique, meaningful, and beautiful wedding officiating
Annie Matan is a gifted community leader and wedding officiant. She worked with us to craft an incredibly special and sacred wedding ceremony. She spent time getting to know us individually and as a couple so that she could tailor the ceremony to us and to our families and make it exactly what we wanted to have. She helped us decide what traditions were important for us to keep and in what ways we could make the ceremony our own. She helped make it an extremely enjoyable and memorable experience for us and our guests.Sent on 24/02/2021
Annie has an beautiful, soulful voice and a wonderful grounded presence. She projects love, openness and authenticity. She checked in with us on every aspect of our ceremony to make sure we would be comfortable—what she would say, what language and translations she would use, how she could support us, and what kind of participation we wanted from friends and family. We could not be happier with the final result. Multiple guests told us afterward that it was the most meaningful wedding they had ever attended and we thank Annie for working with us and going above and beyond in facilitating our wedding.

A spiritual wedding brought to life
My partner and I decided to plan a very non-traditional wedding ceremony, one that embodies our connection to the spiritual world with touches of Jewish tradition in support of our family. Annie not only completely understood what we were looking to achieve, but was also able to help us envision why we wanted a wedding ceremony and how we could make it completely unique to us. Her unique empathic ability allowed her - after only a few converssations - to recognize and in term package what our unconscious was telling us what we were truly looking for. I appreciate how she was able to bring out the best in us, both leading up the wedding and at the ceremony itself. To this day, many have said that our wedding was the most unique, heart-felt and loving wedding they have ever been to. We couldn't have done it withour AnnieSent on 03/03/2021
