  • We are so grateful to Rabbi Annie for leading a special wedding ceremony for us. Like so many others, we had to downsize our wedding plans dramatically because of Covid. Rabbi Annie remained flexible throughout our changing plans, including a changed venue and moving the wedding outdoors. We enjoyed getting to know her in the months leading up to the wedding through our pre-marital sessions (both in-person and via FaceTime). She was genuinely interested in getting to know us as a couple. We appreciated that she was so open to crafting our wedding ceremony to be just as religious and just as personal as we wanted; we never felt pressured to include any particular elements. On the day of our backyard wedding, Rabbi Annie was punctual, professional, and flexible as we dealt with heavy rain during our ceremony. She led a beautiful marriage ceremony that was memorable for us and for our guests. Several of our guests commented on how much they liked her. She is a true stage presen... Read more

  • Rabbi Annie did an incredible job with our (very) last minute micro-wedding ceremony. Even in a short amount of time, she was able to get to know us and make the ceremony feel personal and incredibly meaningful. Our families couldn’t have been happier with how the day turned out.

  • Rabbi Annie made us feel like we were the only couple in the world getting married! She took the time to truly get to know us, and it felt like we had known her for years even though we just met last year. Her approach was to listen to us, understand what we wanted, and guide us through the preparation process. She was incredibly flexible and accommodating with scheduling and other changes we had to make due to the pandemic. Rabbi Annie told us our ceremony would be beautiful, and it truly was beautiful, beyond everything we had hoped for. Her presence, her voice and her words were moving and inspirational to us as we were beginning our new life together as a married couple. Rabbi Annie is truly exceptional and we are so fortunate to have found her.

  • It was a pleasure to have Rabbi Annie officiate her wedding. She did a great job walking us through the process, was flexible enough for us to combine traditional and contemporary elements of a Jewish wedding, and gave very touching remarks during the ceremony. We are so grateful that she was part of our special day!

  • Wow! We are beyond grateful for the way Rabbi Annie officiated our wedding on May 18th and the many months she spent getting to know us beforehand. It was truly such a beautiful introduction into Judaism for my husband and I am proud to have her be the first Rabbi he has gotten to know. Her openness of our interfaith marriage, generosity of your time, thoughtfulness and guidance has been unprecedented in our experience so far. The words she spoke during our wedding were the most meaningful, I truly felt like she witnessed our love story, uplifted the best in us, and helped us navigate any challenges. What a privilege it has been having Rabbi Annie usher us into this new stage of our lives!

  • Rabbi Annie made our wedding ceremony so unbelievably special . She is a wonderful, fun and compassionate person who really cares about people and made sure our ceremony was perfectly tailored to us. I always looked forward to talking to her leading up to the ceremony and it was as if we had known her forever! People kept coming up to us during the wedding saying they were blown away with her voice and how beautiful it was. I feel very blessed to have had her as part of our special day and I could not imagine having anyone else marry us!

  • Rabbi Annie is kind, knowledgeable and incredibly dedicated to giving you the wedding ceremony that best captures your experiences and preferences as a couple. Her program ensures a ceremony filled with love and authenticity because she's committed to learning about you as individuals and as a couple. When my father became gravely ill, Rabbi Annie readily agreed to perform a special ceremony for him the same day our larger ceremony was already planned. She graciously managed through our last-minute logistical changes and led us through an emotional day with compassion and poise. We feel extremely fortunate to have chosen a rabbi who prioritizes the needs of her couples and works with a joyfulness that was both soothing and inspiring.

  • We really enjoyed working with Rabbi Annie, and received many compliments on how beautiful and well thought-out our service was. She used her knowledge of Judaism and us (She spent a LOT of time getting to know us!) to help us craft the perfect service. For example, we swapped 7 blessings for 7 unique wishes from different couples we admire- her idea. She consulted with us on our ketubah and was extremely helpful in that respect. Sometimes her style can be a bit brusque, but her overall service was full of love and really spoke to us as a couple. we highly recommend her.
