Stress-free Day of Coordinating!!
Alison was fantastic to work with. We used her day of coordinating services for our wedding and couldn't be happier. She literally is a jack of all wedding trades. She led our rehearsal when our officiant was unavailable, she was there for every minute our of wedding day, set up/break down and whatever else she did behind the scenes to make our wedding day simply perfect. She has a curated list of wedding vendors to recommend and also a huge inventory of rentals. Do yourself a favor and hire her!

Alison and her company, Alison to the Altar were phenomenal.
Alison personally helped to prepare us for our wedding and provided valuable insights for setting up and kicking off our beach wedding. Alison was able to provide photography, flowers, and officiant services for ceremony. Alison was very accessible regarding any questions via phone and email. Alison helped to keep everything in line and provide us timelines to ensure nothing fell by the wayside. Alison consulted my wife and I for all decisions and provided counsel based her experience to make the best decisions possible. Alison was very fun, caring, and great to work with. Alison's florist met our vision for flowers for reception centerpieces and flowers wore by members of the wedding party. The officiant and her photographer were great in the field and accommodated all requests we had. All in all, Alison to the Altar helped to meet our wedding vision and within our budget. Highly suggest hiring her company.

We used Alison for day of coordination and officiant services for our wedding in West OC on 9/22 and we can’t say enough great things about her and her team. She was so easy to work with and gave us lots of great ideas for both our ceremony and reception. We started working with Alison over a year before our wedding, she gave us a recommended vendor list (we used her chair vendor for the ceremony) and she checked in periodically throughout the year to see how the process was going. When the wedding got closer, we met in person to talk through what was done and what still needed to be done. The day before the wedding, we did a walk through with Alison at both our ceremony and reception sites. The day of Alison coordinated with our reception venue to decorate for the reception and made sure the ceremony chairs were setup correctly. She had a few other weddings going on the same day, so one of her assistants, Brittany, was the officiant for our ceremony and did a great job making sure the transition from the ceremony to the reception went smoothly. Thank you Alison and the Alison to the Altar team for helping us make our wedding day everything we dreamed it would be! Highly recommend!
