Personal, perfect ceremony!
Alyson was wonderful to work with and helped us create the most beautiful ceremony. She really takes the time to sit down with you, understand your relationship deeply, and create a perfectly represented ceremony. She is also super open to feedback and input, and I always felt like she wanted the ceremony to be ours. If you want someone that will make it super personal and truly cares, Alyson is your officiant! Highly recommend.

Alyson served as the officiant at our wedding in June 2018, and she helped us create a wonderful ceremony that combined our own unique elements with tradition. We found Alyson through an online search of officiants. We wanted someone who had officiated same-sex weddings before and could help us answer some of the questions we couldn't solve on our own. Alyson was so friendly and pleasant from the beginning. When we met with her to discuss our ceremony, we talked with each other for a couple of hours and she was extremely easy to talk to, but pushed the two of us to think. About each other, our reasons for getting married, and what we wanted from our ceremony. Then, she put it all together into the most amazing ceremony we could imagine. We both teared up when we read Alyson's first draft. Alyson helped us incorporate meaningful readings into our ceremony and gave us tips as we wrote our own vows. On the day of the ceremony, Alyson performed an absolutely stunning ceremony and included a moment for the two of us to really experience our union that our guests say "give them goosebumps when they think about it." She made us laugh, cry, and really experience the joyous occasion as it was happening. We're so grateful to have found Alyson and highly recommend her for other couples who are searching for an officiant.
