    One of our best wedding decisions!

    I cannot begin to explain how special Alonzo and his wife made our small wedding, but I will try! We wanted a small and intimate wedding, and I was initially a bit worried either the ceremony wouldn't feel "special" enough, or that it would be too short and too plain. Alonzo checked ALL OF OUR BOXES - our ceremony was neither boring, too short, nor plain!

    Alonzo initiated video calls with us, to both meet us and for us to meet him. He told us his own love story, and knowing who he is, and where he and his wife came from, really made us feel like it wasn't just a stranger who was officiating our wedding. Alonzo helped us narrow down a location, and knew which ones needed permits, and which didn't. He gave us options for religious, semi-religious, and non-religious verbiage, and even had options for a special flair to the ceremony. We were able to add a special poem/song, and he even had his own creation of a unity ceremony.

    He guided us through planning our wedding in a completely encouraging way, and when we didn't know the answer to something, he didn't make us feel like we didn't know what we were doing. He gently and thoroughly would explain, and he was so patient in giving us the space we needed in the conversation to make decisions - without us having to ask.

    Alonzo also provided prompts in helping write our wedding vows and provided us with a script that he would be following along so we were prepared before the wedding. The excitement and the presentation of these written words were more than I even hoped for. Alonzo really brought our ceremony to life, took something that could have been plain and simple, and made it into something extraordinary for us. His demeanor was professional, yet warm and friendly, and his wife was exactly the same way. I felt confident in their ability to get us through anything the ceremony brought, from the moment I stepped out of the car with Alonzo's wife waiting there for me, to finishing the ceremony and signing the license. They were just as excited about our wedding as we were, and we could not have chosen a better officiant.

    Tree of life wedding

    Alonzo was absolutely incredible. He walked us through the entire process and met with us twice via zoom on what to expect the day of. He made it intimate and gave us multiple suggestions on how to make it our very own day. Do yourself a favor and hire this wonderful man if you are needing to get married in the New Orleans area, couldn't be happier me and my wife did!!!!!!!
