Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

She made us very comfortable because she took the time to get to know us and our story before the ceremony. I just adore her!!

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

A couple of jokes :D I told her to make it lighthearted and fun and she did just that. I loved it!!! Plus she had all of our kids (four out of five- the youngest was only 3 at the time and couldn't sign his name) sign the decorative wedding certificate as the witnesses. That was so special and touching to include our kids like that. I have never seen or heard of an officiant doing that. Now I have a very special and unique decorative wedding certificate proudly on display

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

Made it small, personal, intimate but still kept it fun and lighthearted. We did a Traditional Celtic Hand fasting Ceremony

My brother said that he LOVED the ceremony so much that he wished he would've known about Connie back when he got married to his wife but he said he will use her when they renew their vows because they always wanted a ceremony just like mine <3

Just What We Wanted!

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

Absolutely! She is a fun person and willing to offer anyone's weddding-dream-come-true! .

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

She offers so many different types of ceremonies, some very unique! All-in-all, she offers whatever the bride and groom wish for. She offers customized, personalized, as well as extremely nice pre-written vows (for those of us that can't quite express ourselves as well as others!) She also made our little grandchildren part of the memories by having all of them sign our "souvenir" wedding documen

Rev. Connie was amazing she made everyone at the wedding feel comfortable with her and she cut through my nerves right away and made me feel calm for the wedding.

Rev. Connie wrote our ceremony for us it was completely personnal and very sweet. She added fun little elements to our ceremony to show off our personalities.

Celebration of Ten Years Together at Alta

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

Rev. Connie made us feel mroe than comfortable. She listened and asked the right questions in order to gain a real understanding of our needs and vision. She was attentive to our needs and was able to deliver a flawless ceremony involving not only us, but our guests as well. We could not be more pleased.

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

I was not expecting such a personal touch to the ceremony. I was not expecting Rev. Connie to truly understand our purpose and tailor such a beautiful, emotional and heart felt ceremony just for US!

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

We wanted to add our daughter somehow in the vows or ring exchange. Connie was able to do a section of the ceremony where David and I made parent vows to our 8 year old daughter. There was not a dry eye in the congregation.

Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests?

Everyone commented on the vows we had for our daughter. They thought it was a special moment for the three of us and like I said before, not a dry eye in the congregation. I have already had serveal friends ask where and how we found her because they were so impressed with how personal our ceremony was, like she knew us for years.

Wedding ceremony

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

I am very pleased with having Rev. Connie as an officiant at my daughters wedding! we met with Rev. Connie about a month before the wedding. She had previously given us a bunch of papers to look through about different types of ceremonies so we could talk about them at our meeting. Rev. Connie was very open to what my daughter and her husband wanted.

Rev. Connie wrote a very special ceremony after meeting with us and getting to know the couple. My daughter and son-in-law read through it. they didn't want to change a thing.
I really loved that they could read their vows to each other and not the repeat after me. It was a very lovely ceremony.

Rev. Connie sounded great too and had us laughing along with tears of happiness. She is a wonderful lady!

Thanks so much for being there for us!

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

Laughter was the only thing added. She didn't change anything that was talked about before.

Handfasting/Sand Ceremony Vow Renewal

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

Yes, she made us comfortable.
Our primary goal was that of renewal as we were officially wed in 2002.

We had a deep desire to create a spiritually meaning ceremony because we did not have that the first time around. We also wanted our 3 children included in the ceremony.

We wanted to be bound as a family.

Rev. Connie helped us be comfortable in asking for what we wanted and getting it done.

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

We added a Sand ceremony to the end of it and included our children into the whole thing so they felt bonded to us in a spiritually meaningful and uplifting way.

Rev. Connie Anast was absolutely fabulous!!

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

From the first meeting, Rev. Connie Anast was so friendly and gave us so many ideas that we not only felt comfortable but even more excited about the ceremony. We decided she was the perfect one after just a couple of minutes. At the ceremony, she made us and everyone there feel comfortable!

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

Rev. Connie brought such a positive and happy energy that everyone felt the love and happiness from the very start.

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

I didn't even realize how much you can personalize a wedding ceremony until I talked to Rev. Connie. She let us choose from lots of different poems, vows, etc. or even let us choose our own and write our own vows.

Perfect!

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

Yes! From our very first meeting with her, emails and the ceremony she answered all our questions and was so personable. Her attitude is very soothing during the stressful time of planning a wedding.

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

I did not have to worry about sending in the paperwork for our license. She took care of all that for me so I could enjoy my honeymoon. She chattted with all the guests and fit right in with both our families.

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

Our ceremony was written just for us. We wanted our children to be a part of our wedding and Connie added them with her beautiful words. She also suggested a sand ceremony, where we all added our favorite color of sand to a vase. I now have something to display and share for our combined families.

Everyone agreed the sand cermony was beautiful and touching.

Last minute notice :)

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

Absolutely! Connie was amazing. We called her with less than 48 hours notice, not only was she able to accommodate our request, she still managed to create a personal and beautiful ceremony.

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

“Blessing of the Hands”
The entire ceremony was incredible. Connie suggested an additional piece that I was previously unfamiliar with. It ended up being one of the most touching moments of our service.

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

My husband and I both had children from previous relationships. Including them in our ceremony was vital. Connie was quick to capture the love we had both for each other and the mutual respect and love that we had for each other’s family.

Rev. Connie was very sweet and made both of us feel extremely comfortable and confident. She was present at the rehearsal, which allowed us to get an idea of how the wedding day would be.

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

Rev. Connie personalized our ceremony to how we wanted it. We wanted short, sweet and simple. She did exactly that, but at the same time it was very intimate. In every picture we have of the ceremony, she is always smiling and looks excited to be there and excited to perform the service.

An Very Personal Ceremony

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

Connie was fantastic. She was personable, caring, funny, outgoing, and the fact she truly cared about the ceremony was evident.

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

A tribute to my son and daughter in law's favorite Grandfathers, who had passed away.

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

This was my son's wedding. Connie met with my son and his fiancee to find out how they met, what their likes and dislikes were; she truly strived to find out who they were so she could write their ceremony accordingly.

Rev. Connie is the VERY BEST

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

Rev. Connie was absolutely amazing. She came early to make sure the venue was ready and to check in with us. I was frantic due to other vendors mishaps and she helped keep me calm and rational. She was like a best friend and a sister all rolled up in one. Her wisdom helped me deal with a few crisis with the best results. My wedding planner didn't even show up to help! I don't know what I would have done without her.

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

Rev. Connie absolutely made our wedding. She met with us several times to work out every nuance of our ceremony. She was the first officiant to really listen to what WE wanted and not push some standard ceremony at us. She had such an array of options and suggestions for us, we could tell she had the experience behind her. She was available for questions whenever we had them. I can say my ceremony was unique and no one had ever seen anything like it before.

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

We are a non-traditional couple and didn't want to be tied down to the standard ceremony. We wanted to celebrate our love in a spiritual but not a religious way. Rev. Connie was able to do that with her writing style and her voice. She had a way of bringing everyone into the moment, to really listen to what she was saying about love and commitment. We added a special moment for our Mothers which was extremely important to us, that Connie wrote custom for our wedding. I watched our ceremony back again on video and it was even better than I remembered, if that was possible!

Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests?

My mother told me it took her breath away. That alone means the world to me. I heard other people talking about how unique, beautiful and memorable our ceremony was. I had no less than 5 girlfriends asking for Rev. Connie's contact information "just in case" they got engaged over the Christmas Holiday. Rev. Connie was the best vendor at my wedding and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone else!

Connie is the BEST!!

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

I have known Connie for a few years and we always joked that if I EVER got married that she would do my wedding. Well when the day finally came for me to ask her she was SO excited for me. She was so accommodating and willing to work with me on times and such. We didn’t give her much time to prepare (got engaged one month and married the next) and it didn’t help that my husband is a truck driver and has the worst schedule possible. Connie always had an encouraging word for me if I was frustrated or a helpful suggestion to make things easier. She has known a lot of people who have taken a year or more to plan their wedding and since we did not take a lot of time I depended on Connie a lot. Having known Connie for a few years isn’t what made everything easier; Connie just has a way about her that makes things easy.

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

Connie gave me a customized wedding ceremony and in the middle of performing it when she began the ring ceremony she dropped my ring down the heater vent. I remember her looking at me and it being such a surreal moment, the look on her face was classic but she recovered well and that moment more than any other part of the ceremony I will never forget... I don’t remember all the words she spoke before or after but I totally remember her face in that moment. Instead of it ruining my wedding I think of it often and it made everything so real, so perfect. My brother-in-law, who was hosting the event, spoke up and the next thing I knew he was crawling on the floor at my feet reaching into the vent to retrieve my ring. Connie had her hand on my arm and it kept me very calm and kept me from reacting or panicking.

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

David and I had a very whirlwind romance and Connie knew that. She didn’t focus everyone’s attention on that because it was not something that all of the guests were comfortable with.

Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests?

Almost all of my guests loved the hand-fasting ceremony we chose, no one had ever seen it before and Connie was so sincere in her comments. Another thing I received a lot of compliments on was her mention of the guests that could not be there with us and the moment of silence we had in honor of our parents, both of my parents are deceased and David’s mom is too. It conveyed a feeling of calm about them not being there but didn’t make the remaining time during the ceremony melancholy in any way. She is so respectful and wonderful! We love Connie!!!

Celltic Handfasting

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

Reverend Connie made us very comfortable. She made sure to answer all of our questions and address our concerns. She did not pressure us to use her during our initial meeting, and was friendly and sincere.

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

Reverend Connie was swept up in the happy emotions of the day and we were surprised to see a tear in her eye. It was refreshing that even though she has preformed so many wedding ceremonies, she still was still moved by the beauty of mine.

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

Connie made us very comfortable. She helped walk us through the whole process since we really had no clue as to what we were doing or what was needed in a good officiant

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

She got to know us and our love of nature and being outdoors and incorporated that into our ceremony

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

She talked with us through the whole process. We were torn between a hand blessing and a handfasting and so she wrote up the separate ceremonies and let us pick which one fit us better. She also got to know us as people and our likes and dislikes and tried to incorporate that into our ceremony.

Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests?

We decided to go with the handfasting and everyone of our guests said that it was unique and fascinating as well as gorgeous and moving.

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

Connie is absolutely wonderful!!! From the very first email I sent her to the day of our wedding, Connie was a joy to work with. She is extremely friendly and down to earth. I am eternally grateful we chose her to officiate our wedding.

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

When so many people in your life (family and friends) have an opinion on what your wedding should be like, she listened to what we wanted. Never once trying to push her ideas onto us. We gave her general ideas about what we wanted and she would ask probing questions so that she may understand us better and give us the ceremony we wanted. She also gave me a lot of ideas since I had no idea what I was doing in the beginning. I have been to weddings where the couple end up complaining that the officiant threw in something that they hadn't asked for. Connie's ONLY agenda is to ensure that the bride and groom are happy and getting exactly what they want. Our wedding was perfect and we have Connie to thank for it.

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

We wanted a light hearted ceremony. Something that was sweet but also incorporated humor. We are a couple who loves to laugh and our guests expected nothing less from us. There were a few small jokes written into the ceremony and well as a touching moment where Connie read a poem I had found. It was just what we had imagined.

Rev. Connie Anast is Amazing!

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

The first time my husband and I met Rev. Anast we were immediately comfortable. She was always easy to talk to, warm and welcoming.

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

I love the fact that Rev. Anast writes a custom ceremony specifically for the couple. No ceremony is the same as another. I was sent emails of rough drafts and asked what I did and did not like, if there were any special versus I wanted to personally add into the ceremony etc etc. Rev. Anast also came to the rescue when my husbands ring did not arrive in time for the wedding by letting us borrow one she had. It was nice because it was one less thing I had to stress about!

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

My husband and I decided to have a non-denominational wedding and a sand ceremony to unite us as a couple. We wrote our own vows and Rev. Anast sent me about 20 different sand ceremonies that we could possibly use during the wedding.

Trust her with your most precious moment!

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

Reverend Connie went out of her way to make not just the bride and groom, but myself as mother of the bride and all of the family throughout the planning, the ceremony, and party afterwards. She is so naturally warm and welcoming, she had a 'calming' effect during those crucial moments just before the ceremony.

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

Reverend Connie reached out to all of us, making everyone feel included, listening carefully to our ideas and thoughts and adding her experience and insight as needed. She came to the event early, stayed throughout the afternoon, spent some extra time looking over the venue, helping us to organize some last minute details and then, when everything was ready she was very much, the 'officiant', by the way she carries herself, speaks, and prepares, she let everyone know that it was now time to quiet down, focus on the couple and help make this 'their' moment. She also acknowledged my new son-in-laws service to his country, recognizing that he had just returned from active duty and offering a discount in honor of his service! No one else offered this, and she did so ith such a generous and genuine way.

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

Reverend Connie met with the bride and groom and spent two hours talking to them, getting to know them, learning about the courtship, the uniquiness of how their relationship had developed and what they were interested in, not just for the wedding, but for their lives together going forward. She is very interested in making the ceremony personalized, special, and meaningful, and ultimately that is exactly what she did.

I really appreciated how she began the ceremony as she acknowledged the presence of those loved ones who re present and those who were not, and most importantly, those who were with us in spirit only. It was a tender moment. She drew everyone into the moment, with her words and with her presence.

Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests?

There were many comments on the ceremony, particularly the way in which it was performed, Rev. Connies' professionalism, preparation, and creativity were all commented on. The way she brought a lightness and humor at moments was something I heard about several times. Making the nervousness of the Groom and the shaking voice of the Bride something not to be ignored or embarrassed about, but something warm, real, spontaneous and a good place for a little giggle shared by everyone there became something that will always be a happy memory Perfect timing, great speaking voice, so very kind and professional.

Absolutely Wonderful!

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

My fiance (now husband) and I are from out of town, but I grew up in Utah, so I wanted to have the ceremony there. I put off finding a wedding officiant for the last thing because I wasn't really sure how to go about doing it, and that's when I stumbled across Connie's listing. I'm very glad I did. She was so accommodating to our needs! We were able to do absolutely everything over the internet, which was a big help to me.

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

She wrote the most beautiful ceremony for us and then emailed a copy of it to me for my fiance and I to review. I thought that was such a great idea, because it listed everything for the ceremony out in detail, and also gave us a chance to make any little tweeks or changes, to help the ceremony fit us as a couple. She also gave us a lovely "keepsake" wedding license to display in our home.

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

Connie asked us a variety of questions about us as a couple, and she wrote up a beautiful ceremony around the responses we had given. But then, about a week before the wedding, after she had already finalized the ceremony, I found a poem that really touched both my fiance and me, and we really wanted to include in the ceremony. I emailed it to Connie and she was able to change the ceremony for us, to make room for it. We were so happy!

Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests?

Everyone who commented to me thought the ceremony was amazing! By the end, both our parents (even our dads) were having a hard time keeping from crying. Her words touched all of us.
