It is my joy and honor to create for you a one-of-a-kind, fully customized wedding ceremony. I work with you to build the perfect ritual for your day, words and moments that will resonate with your beliefs and stay with you for the rest of your life. From creative readings and unique unity rituals to bursting into song, every aspect of your ceremony is 100% creatively, awesomely you.
I am always available to my clients, because I don't see them as clients, I see them as friends. You're welcome to contact me any time, with any thoughts, ideas, changes or requirements you have. I'm always excited to schedule collaborative sessions with you. We can get together at a coffee shop, my house/office or yours, and work on your ceremony organically, until it's done to your exact specifications. I'm not happy until you are.
The words spoken between two people can change them for a lifetime. I have a history with creative writing, religion and theater and I think the combination of these things have manifested in this wonderful career path of helping people create the extraordinary.

We don’t even know where to begin describing our amazing experience with Ali, other than to say: Choose her to officiate your wedding! From the very first communication to after our wedding, Ali was incredible to work with and gave us the most beautiful, heartfelt, and intimate ceremony that was truly ours. My husband and I had a unique vision for our wedding: 10 people, but still a special and classic ceremony to remember. Ali made that happen. We laughed, we cried, we smiled non-stop. She incorporated our story in our words into the beginning of the ceremony, and then lead into a traditional script. We opted for a more religious message, and Ali delivered (though also offering a non-religious script as well, should you choose). Leading up to the ceremony, Ali was available and open to any comments or changes that we requested to the script, as she was truly interested in only one thing: providing us with a ceremony that reflected our story. Ali was very responsive. We met once before the wedding day for a meet-and-greet and then again at the rehearsal, where she took charge in directing people so that things ran smoothly for the big day. During the ceremony, Ali spoke loud and clear, addressed us directly, and was animated in her delivery. It’s been three weeks and I’m still getting compliments! Overall, Ali was an absolute pleasure to work with, and she gave us the most perfect ceremony—we would not have changed a thing. We highly recommend!Sent on 09/16/2018

I cannot say enough about Ali! She was incredible to work with! Right off the bat it felt like I had known her for years. It was very important to my husband and I that our ceremony veered away from too much tradition and Ali was key! She even found a way to make our ceremony completely unique to us! EVERYONE who attended our wedding could not stop talking about the ceremony. Even our guests thought Ali had been in our lives for years. She captured our relationship so perfectly. It could not have been anymore personal. I love the keepsake she created so we can cherish those words forever. Do not hesitate to book her!Sent on 09/18/2017

Alina was amazing! She was willing to book with little notice for a holiday wedding for my husband and I, and provided a beautiful ceremony that had all of our relatives (and us) in tears. We were looking for a completely non-religious hand fasting ceremony with meaning and Alina delivered. She shared her ideas for the ceremony which were okayed by my partner and I ahead of time and provided a wonderful, calming presence. Thank you so much Alina!Sent on 04/17/2017
*note: cost was for a last minute holiday wedding, which we were more than willing to pay. Generally the cost is less.
