Anne Bernard Becker
I am an ordained minister, licensed as a wedding officiant by the State of Ohio. I have officiated at dozens of weddings in the Cincinnati area. My role is to help a couple celebrate fully with the family and friends who are gathered as witnesses to their love. With this goal in mind, I help the couple create a ceremony that is uniquely personal to them.
A meaningful wedding ceremony does not have to be elaborate, but couples appreciate one that is warm, spiritually grounded even if not overtly religious, and personalized.
I prefer to pre-plan the wedding ceremony when possible, so that I can help the couple reflect on what readings, wedding vows, prayers, rituals and music would most uniquely express their love and the meaning of this day for them
Since the wedding is only the beginning of a lifetime commitment, I offer counseling and a couples retreat for those who are interested in enhancing their marriage.
Rev.Anne is a treasure! She met with my (now) husband and I several times before the actual wedding day and was always available by phone and email for interim questions, details, planning, etc. Her individualized attention, creativity, genuine caring and excitement in being involved in the process and culmination of celebrating our marriage was wonderful. Our friends and family really enjoyed Rev. Anne's presence, as did we! She is open, friendly and very good at helping determine the best way to involve your most important aspects of however you want your ceremony to be. We highly recommend her!--Brenda

We really enjoyed working with Reverend Becker as we planned our wedding. She listened carefully to our ideas about what we think a marriage should be and helped us craft the words to convey that to each other and to our families and friends.”
