Originally from the Bay Area in California, I have lived in Grants Pass for over 7 years and I love it here. One of my greatest joys as an ordained non-denominational minister is working with couples in designing the right and perfect ceremony that celebrates their love, their joy, their dreams, and the combining of their spiritual paths into a glorious journey of togetherness.
A ceremony should be as unique as the individuals and as timeless as their love. I have had the honor of officiating weddings for well over a decade. I remain passionate about helping couples create their perfect ceremony. I have never, in over a dozen years, used the same exact ceremony twice.
Over the years I've also had the opportunity to experience and learn about many different traditions and cultures. I have officiated ceremonies incorporating traditions such as:
One of the most unique experiences was officiating an absolutely beautiful ceremony, together with a Hindu Priest, combining both Christian and Hindu traditions. I've even learned a wedding prayer in Chinese.
I welcome the opportunity to learn about different customs, traditions, and cultures. I'm more than willing to work with each couple to incorporate aspects of their cultures that are important to them.
For those who wish, I also offer pre-marital counseling. Separately and then together, we deeply explore various aspects of marriage in which conflict often arises; we discuss where there is alignment, and we'll identify and talk about those areas in which there may be potential conflict.
I am pleased to officiate and celebrate all marriages founded on love for both 'straight' couples as well as 'same-sex' couples. Ceremonies offered include Traditional and Contemporary Weddings, Blended Family, and Renewal of Vows.
Finally - a note about pricing. The average in our area is around $200.00 for the wedding and $50.00 for the rehearsal. I don't have a set fee for service. Some couples have paid a little less, and some have paid much more. The most I've received is $600.00. My personal average is between $300.00 and $400.00. Things to consider:

Alan is not only an amazing officiant, but an amazing person as well. He was spot on with everything and made our day incredibly special. We could not have asked for a better person to officiate our wedding. In fact, we liked him so much, we asked him to stay for the whole event (cocktails, dinner, dancing, send off) so that he could be part of the entire day! We now consider him a friend of the family.Sent on 10/31/2016

Rev. Alan took what we had written for wedding vows and put them into the most beautiful ceremony. I are grateful for all the time he took to make our wedding day something we will remember.Sent on 09/01/2016

My Husband and I got married yesterday by Rev Allan B Little and we couldn't of asked for a better person to do our wedding. He was super friendly and nice. And he went way beyond what he needed to do. He was very patient and understanding and he was amazing with all of our last minute changes. He is defiantly the one that I would refer to all of my friends and family members that get married. He was also really nice and helped us when we knew what we wanted to do but wasn't to sure how to make it look good. Allan is a great person and I am so beyond happy on how me and my husbands wedding turned out. The church was beautiful and all of our family and friends were complementing us on how beautiful everything looked. Thank you so much Allan for making me and Kyle's wedding day the best that it could of been.Sent on 08/07/2015
