Anne Marie left her body on August 5, 2022.
To honor Anne Marie’s memory she requested you go to your local shelter and adopt a dog or cat.
Anne Marie’s intention is to do a marriage ceremony that is appropriate and meaningful for you. If you are affiliated with any religion, church, or philosophy, she will create a ceremony that includes it. If you prefer a nondenominational or civil service, she does that. Writing some of your own vows or personal words to each other is most welcomed. Unlike the other wedding officiates, Anne Marie does not read the same words to every couple. She personalized your marriage ceremony.
“Eric and I can not thank you enough for everything you did to make our ceremony way beyond perfect. Your voice, your words, your presence was amazing. Everyone said it was the best wedding/ceremony they have ever been to. thank you a million times! Thank you!!!!!!”
Carli & Eric Pastrama
Dearest Anne Marie,
”We have struggled to find adequate words to express our gratitude for everything: for getting to know us ahead of time, for taking the time to help us explore what we wanted, and for making our ceremony personal, meaningful, and spiritual. We felt a deep connection to you, to the earth, to the universe, and, most importantly to each other. We vow to do our best to follow your advice and wisdom to honor each other and be kind to each other all the days of our lives. We have fallen in love with St. John and hope to visit again and again. Until then, with much love, blessings, and Thanks!”
Margaret and Daniel Gallant
“We would like to express our appreciation for the beautiful, relaxed ceremony that you conducted for us. Since it was a second marriage for both, we entered into it with a great determination and commitment to a loving and lasting relationship. We didn’t want all of the fanfare and complicated rituals that first weddings typically generate, and fortunately found the perfect person to conduct our ceremony. Your sense of humor, instant rapport, and uncanny ability to read our characters after only speaking with us for a few minutes resulted in a remarkably personalized ceremony that made our wedding very special. Thank you.”
Ted and Debra Flynn
St.John is 3/4 National Park and has some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Anne Marie has a Commercial Use Authorization permit to use all of these beaches for your wedding. Also available, are Annaberg Sugar Mill ruins and Peace Hill, for brides that don’t want to stand in beach sand. If you want your wedding in a church, she uses the Nazareth Lutheran Church in Cruz Bay because it is small, charming and parking is nearby. Some couples want to get married at their vacation accommodation so, Anne Marie is happy to come to your villa or resort.
“You performed such a memorable and reverent ceremony for my husband and I. I want to thank you for giving us beautiful lasting memories of our wedding! You also helped me so much with all of your references and information and having patience with me finding just the right place for the wedding. You are wonderful at what you do and must find so much joy in knowing you touch so many people’s lives. St. John is fortunate to have you.”
“All of your hard work and great communication made the whole wedding experience so smooth and worry-free. We loved Cinnamon Bay Beach and can’t wait to get back to the USVI.”
