About AnnaMarie

Professional Wedding Officiant, expert wedding ceremony designer, award winning journalist and writer, advisor to couples and aspiring officiants and professionals in the wedding industry.

AnnaMarie is absolutely passionate about empowering couples to re-think the typical, standard wedding ceremony and, instead, creating a truly authentic ceremony that celebrates one of the most significant moments of your lifetime.

AnnaMarie helps couples by questioning the old rules and ideas about weddings, and helping people step into their own version of how they want to celebrate each significant life milestone.
