Celebrant Anna P Bacall - About Me

Barrett and I on our wedding

My husband Barrett and I were married shortly after sunrise in the beautiful natural reserve on Plum Island of the North Shore. 

The second marriage for us both, my first was 22 years; we were looking for something intimate and personal.
We held a small pre-wedding feast of lobsters and champagne the night before with my adult children. It was then that we received the joyous news that we were to become grandparents!
The next morning, except for the minister and a wonderfully unselfish friend who woke at the crack of dawn in order to capture our memory on film, we were the only ones there.
And what an incredible memory we made. We walked half a mile which included 93 stairs up to a large wooden deck overlooking unspoiled sand dunes and the calmly rhythmic ocean in the distance. We were at the top of the trees. At one point a bird landed on the railing and sang for us during our ceremony.  The broken overcast sky allowed rays from the early morning sun to stream down to the ground reminding me of a childhood memory when I was sure that the rays were God’s glory spilling down to the Earth from Heaven.
Our souls entwined with the nature we were completely surrounded by. The ceremony reflected us; it was a truly unique and personal experience that is locked in our hearts forever.
While the minister and Laura traveled back to their own individual worlds, Barrett and I were crossing the threshold of our new life’s journey together.
Dressed in our wedding attire, we went to the point of the island and enjoyed a tiny wedding cake, champagne and a walk on the beach. To us it could not have been a more perfect day, so much more than we had imagined.
As a Wedding Celebrant, it is my honor to create for you the wedding you envision.  I have experience in ceremonies as intimate as two and as large as 500. Is there a place that has a significant meaning to you? Are you toying with the idea of having your wedding there? No problem. It would be my pleasure to help make your heart’s desire a reality.
