About

On WeddingWire since 2012

Congratulations on your engagement!


One of the first questions I ask my couples is "Why did you hire me?" While each couple has their own expectations and family dynamics to navigate, the answer to this question tends to be, surprisingly, similar for all my couples.
All of my couples, no matter their age or background, can't imagine themselves "just going through the motions" and saying "I do" in a cookie-cutter ceremony. Instead, they say it's important that their "love story give context to all that is said and done throughout their wedding." "We wanted something personal and memorable, something unique to us. We want our ceremony to be about us. Something that shows our guests how much love we have for each other."


Often, couples feel that "a standard religious ceremony would not adequately express their unique relationship and hopes for the future." They want their wedding ceremony to be about them and not a particular religion. Alternatively, many of my couples come from different faith and/or cultural traditions, and they want to "weave important themes and elements from their heritage into a broader story that celebrates them as a couple."


Without a doubt, all of my couples feel that the ceremony is the most important part of the wedding day, "the reason why all our friends and family are coming together" They want their ceremony to create an "experience that makes a lasting impression on everyone in attendance." They want their guests "to have a great time", "to be included", to feel "the warmth, love and spiritual nature of their commitment." They want their guests "to leave the ceremony feeling inspired and with big smiles on their faces."


If this also resonates with you, please visit my website www.alisatonggcelebrant.com to learn more about how I create wedding ceremonies from scratch and perform them for couples who want an inspired, distinct story to be the centerpiece of their wedding. My goal is always to create authentic ceremonies that transform routine into inspired.
Lots of Love,
Alisa

    Alisa tongg is amazing!

    Alisa Tongg is simply the best. I am so thankful I chose her to be our celebrant. She captured our love story in the most perfect way. I couldn't imagine choosing anyone else. She makes the process so amazing and seamless. Our love was really shown to our guests and they were in awe. I still am getting compliments on how amazing she is! Thank you so much Alisa!
