  • I would definitely recommend Reverend Annika to be the Officiant for your wedding. My husband and I are stationed in California and had been planning our vow renewal for two years since our civil ceremony. We wanted to bring all of our family and friends together in our hometown of Kansas to witness the renewal of our vows to each other. Although it wasn't the most convenient of situations, Annika made the long distance process go very smoothly. If you're looking for someone who is experienced and flexible, Annika is the right person for you!

    Thank you for the review Mandy! It was an honor to help you and Roscoe with your vow renewal ceremony. I am so glad that you finally got to have your big wedding with all your family and friends. Wishing you all the best!!

  • Annika was everything my now-husband and I could have asked for and more. As a non-religious couple who were both raised in religious homes (and my husband having been married before), a cookie cutter ceremony just wasn't befitting of us. With this in mind, Annika not only crafted a beautiful and unique ceremony that paid respect to our families' religious beliefs, involved my two beautiful stepsons in the event, but she also helped us stayed true to our personalities as interests as a couple and gave us an incredibly touching moment in time that we will remember forever. We felt supported 110% of the way in all of our desires and decisions, and honestly felt like we should have paid her more! She provided extremely high quality service at a completely affordable price, and we can't say enough nice things about her. We would recommend her to anyone in a heartbeat! If you want your ceremony to be more than just a reading from a book and want something truly heartfelt, hire Annika.

  • I was a last minute bride. I had two months for planning and I decided to do it myself. (Note to future brides, don't do this unless you have tons of real support!) Anyway, I had been looking for an officiant for 5-6 weeks until I found Rev. Annika. I'm so glad that I did! I was an unconventional bride. I consider myself to be spiritual but not religious at all. My now husband is practically Atheist. So I had a lot of expectations that I didn't expect to be met. Hippies in KS are not common. lol. So coming across Annika seemed too good to be true. My wedding was 3 weeks away and I was sure she was booked. Well it was close. One bride had almost booked her but decided to go with a family member. Lucky me! We met with Annika shortly and got along like two peas in a pod. She seemed to anticipate what I was needing and wanting. A little of the Christian traditions I had grown up with and thought beautiful combined with my more dominant spiritual beliefs. She crafted the most beautiful ... Read more

  • It is obvious that Annika really enjoys co-creating ceremony and she is good at it. She gave me space to come up with my own ideas and was also a good resource when I needed help with the details. Annika is very professional while also being warm and caring. Planning the event with her was a smooth and easy process. I highly recommend her services.

  • Rev. Annika was extremely thoughtful and brought some beautiful ideas to the table. My husband and I did not have very many ideas about how our ceremony should go, and Annika was extremely helpful in getting a sense of each of us and combining our personalities to create a very meaningful and beautiful ceremony.

  • When our officiant canceled on us less than two weeks before the wedding, Rev. Annika came to the rescue! She was very organized and helpful and did a great job at the Rehearsal and Wedding. Thanks so much!

  • Reverend Annika performed the memorial service for my husband Harry. She worked diligently with me to make the service personal and special to the memory of Harry. She was sensitive to my wishes and needs and she did the service in a heartfelt and exceptional way. I highly recommend Reverend Annika as she is a lovely and compassionate person.
