Wonderful Experience with Alice
Alice was the best officiant we could have asked for. We originally planned to elope at City Hall but we wanted a more personal experience and I’m so glad we chose to work with her. Our elopement photographer sourced Alice for us and I honestly couldn’t have picked anyone better myself. We had an initial skype meeting in the weeks leading up to our ceremony – with lots of technical difficulties on our end and she was very patient. She asked us about our relationship and how it evolved and turned our story into a very special ceremony. Alice is such a personable individual it made us feel completely at ease, almost as if we’d known her previously. The ceremony she wrote for us made us laugh and cry and will be something we remember forever. She even shared the ceremony with us afterwards so that we could pass along to our families who were not there with us. I would highly recommend Alice!Sent on 05/03/2019

A New Friend Officiates our Wedding
I was introduced to Alice through my elopement photographer. We had a private wedding and wanted to keep everything very intimate. I've only been to weddings where the officiants were religiously officiated or where the officiants were personal friends or family of the couple, so I really had no clue what to expect for my own wedding. Alice emailed us some questions, which were insightful and gave her an idea about our relationship. We had a call with her a few weeks later and she asked ceremony-specific questions, such as if we wanted to write our own vows, what we wanted to be pronounced afterwards, etc. When we saw her the night of our wedding, I really felt like it was seeing an old friend, despite the limited interaction we had with her and over a short period of time. I can't believe what a wonderful ceremony she presented, it was really personal, exactly what we wanted. That being said, if I could rewrite my vows, I wouldn't mention as much of what I did in the answers, as I probably should have realized that she would be using that material for the ceremony. She also has a calming voice, which helped me not be so nervous. After the wedding, she emailed me the ceremony, which will make a nice addition to our wedding scrapbook.Sent on 08/25/2019
If you are looking for an officiant, I could not recommend Alice enough. We both felt really comfortable interacting with her through the whole process and felt she listened to us and really wanted to understand us and our relationship. She was the perfect person to officiate and at some point down the road, I would love for her to be part of our vow renewal ceremony!

Friendly and personal service
Alice was a wonderfully calming influence during the lead up to our wedding, helping us make sure that our ceremony was personal but accessible to all the friends and family that joined us. We were thrilled to have her be a part of our day.Sent on 07/23/2019
