My fiance and I are far from traditionalists, and we didn't want our ceremony to be religious-leaning at all. We wanted something to simply reflect who we are and why we are together. Which is pretty hard to find in Texas, even in an area like Dallas. So we were so relieved when we finally met with Ari and she turned out to be so awesome. She gave us a huge amount of feedback and worked with us to figure out what would be perfect for our ceremony. She let us tweak the pre-written wording and create something unique to us. She was hilarious, and made every part of it easy and enjoyable, and I wound up being much less nervous about it all than I thought I would be. She's fantastic, and I would very highly recommend her to couples looking for an alternative officiant.Sent on 04/02/2015

Excellent preparation and much needed help
My husband and I had no idea what sort of ceremony we wanted for our wedding. It was a tricky balance; formal enough to satisfy the more conservative relatives, modern enough to be meaningful to us. We knew we didn't want to write our vows, and we wanted to keep things simple. Khrymsun helped us by suggesting ceremony styles we hadn't even thought of, and providing templates and ideas for us to work from. She also kept our ceremony running smoothly and made sure we both felt prepared.Sent on 05/21/2019

Rev. Ari was amazing!
Reverend Ari was nothing short of amazing, accommodating and supportive. Her ability to customize our ceremony while deeply partnering with us to do so was greatly appreciated. Her personable, warm and seasoned approach was ideal for what we needed and we are very thankful we chose her to lead us through it. Very happy with her and highly recommend!!Sent on 06/06/2019
I love working with Ari of Alternative Wedding Services. She is extremely professional and really works with the couple to create a personalized ceremony. I hear the guests afterwards talk about how lovely the ceremony was. She truly cares about creating a memorable ceremony for the couple.
Rev. Arianna Gray and Rev. Krymsun Parker are very perceptive and compassionate women who will perform your wedding your way and make it deeply meaningful and memorable. Barbara Gabbert, BMG Originals Custom Clothing, www.bmgoriginals.com
Alternative Wedding Services is a wonderful choice for brides and grooms of any denomination. Arianna automatically makes my clients feel comfortable and at ease with the very personal and important details of the ceremony. She also is well versed in world cultures and has given me ceremony ideas that I have passed along to other brides. I highly recommend Alternative Wedding Services and recommend them to all of my clients looking for wedding officiants.
