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

Highly Recommend Rev. Ari!
We met Rev. Ari for coffee one afternoon. She was enthusiastic about our wedding, and helping us with our plans. She had lots of ideas and advice. Ari sent us a lot of helpful ideas for our wedding. With over 20 years of experience, she had lots of information available including vendors, venues, and ceremony ideas to name a few. She helped us decide on how many attendants we needed for our size wedding. She had several sample ceremonies for us to read through to help create our own custom wedding ceremony and vows. Ari is extremely responsive. Every question we had was answered quickly. For the rehearsal, she was on time, was coordinated and helped us work the logistics for entering and exiting the ceremony, as well as going through the plans for before and after the wedding. With all of her experience, she is very efficient and knows exactly what needs to happen and when. After the wedding, she was prompt in sending off our license to the county, and sent me information on how to start the process of changing my name. Ari is fantastic. We couldn't be happier.Sent on 04/24/2019

It was a pleasure working with Rev. Ari on our wedding ceremony. From the moment we first met her, we felt at ease and like we were talking to a friend of ours. Since my fiancée and I were from different religious backgrounds and in a non-traditional relationship, we were looking for an officiant who would respect our ceremony preferences. Rev. Ari fit this description perfectly. She provided us with lots of good information and ideas to incorporate into our wedding ceremony and allowed us to select language that was truly unique and meaningful to us. On our wedding day, she arrived early, coordinated last-minute details with our string quartet, and made sure family members were in their appropriate places. She even noticed that we had forgotten our bouquets in the main hall and made sure we were 100% ready to go in time for our entrance. She did a great job leading the ceremony itself, and we definitely recommend her services. Thank you, R. Ari!Sent on 12/13/2018

Beautiful, personalized and unique!
Rev. Khrymsun was so great to work with! She's extremely professional and made everything very easy for us. The ceremony itself was nothing but perfect. It was our favorite part of the wedding and everyone else's too. There was not a dry eye in the room! I loved that we were able to incorporate spirituality and handfasting into our ceremony. I will be recommending her to everyone!Sent on 12/05/2018

Rev. Khrymusn Parker was the best!
Rev. Khrymusn was the best! We received so many complements on how she conducted the ceremony. Several even thought we knew her for a long time the way she was so personable. Thanks for sharing our special day with us... "The Girls"Sent on 11/03/2018

Rev Khrymsun made our wedding weekend possible by first working with me on sending me several ideas for venues in her area. She also was a lifesaver when there was a communication error and was easily able to reschedule our date on her calendar (oops)Sent on 06/11/2018
Price was fair as well. She was professional and polite and made our wedding day one we will always cherish.
Thank you Rev Khrymsun!

We were so impressed with Reverend Ari's service. The ceremony was exactly what we were looking for! We got so many compliments from guests about the ribbon ceremony. Because of the many options she offered, I really feel that our ceremony was unique. She also made us feel very comfortable during both the rehearsal and ceremony. We could not have asked for a better experience.Sent on 05/27/2017

Rev. Ari was absolutely wonderful as our ceremony officiant! She provides several ceremony options to pick and choose from to build your own ceremony, and provides incredibly helpful feedback for when you are stuck or missing something. I loved that I was able to build my own ceremony with her rather than just have a standard that was already written. She was also so willing to adjust last minute for us when we decided to perform our actual nuptials at the rehearsal in front of a much smaller group of our closest friends and family as a surprise, which made both our rehearsal and wedding day even more special! There are only wonderful things that can be said about Ari and her services, and I would highly recommend anyone choose her to be your officiant, especially if you are having a non-traditional wedding!Sent on 05/18/2017

Rev. Khyrmsun Parker gave us the most beautiful and special service for our wedding. My fiancé and i were really struggling to find someone who saw our vision. We met with Khrymsun and she put us at ease straight away. She worked very diligently with us building our vows and the order of the ceremony. She was extremely helpful with all the little details we didn't think of and even gave us a wedding planning check-list to keep us organized. She has a wonderful sense of humor. We are forever grateful to her.Sent on 05/30/2017

Reverend Ari was our officiant and she made our day absolutely perfect. She was quick to answer all of our questions, had great ideas and suggestions to help us out, and truly made certain that everything turned out exactly as we had wanted it. She was extremely charming, funny, and heartwarming and made our ceremony better than we could have imagined. If you want an officiant who will respect your wishes and your individuality without a hint of judgement and make your ceremony personalized and meaningful choose Reverend Ari. She was perfect in every way and all of our guests noticed and commented on how great she was and how awesome she made our ceremony.Sent on 10/10/2016

Ari was absolutely amazing to work with! From the minute we met her, we knew she was the right person to handle our ceremony. We wanted a non-traditional ceremony with a few traditional qualities and she worked with us to put together the perfect ceremony for us. She also did an amazing job helping us run the rehearsal. I highly recommend her!Sent on 10/11/2016

Reverend Khrymsun was great from start to finish!Sent on 11/14/2016
At our 1st meeting, she guided us through our options in ceremony types and showed us all the potential wording choices they have available to mix and match.
She helped remind us of timelines by email and even checked in with us closer to the date.
She arrived in a lovely black dress and did a great job directing the ceremony and reading the script we chose together in a meaningful way.
I would definitely recommend Rev K to anyone and any type of couple!
Chaka · Married on 10/01/2016
Rev Ari was nothing short of amazing. Absolutely amazing. We are not your traditional Dallas couple, in that we had no interest in getting married in a church. We didn't want blessings and prayers, and we definitely didn't want an officiant who would push their own beliefs and agendas on us. We were so relieved to find Ari, who worked with us as we transitioned from one booked venue to another, and was so committed in helping us have the perfect wedding day. Every meeting we had with her was so positive, informative and fun. With her help, I wrote our ceremony, and her delivery on our wedding day was beautiful, emotional and hilarious all at the same time. We couldn't have picked a better officiant. After the wedding, she gave us a copy of our ceremony, mailed our certificate and sent me info on changing my name. We LOVED working with her, and would recommend her to anyone. Thanks Rev Ari!Sent on 11/19/2016

Rev. Gray was above and beyond what we had desired from an officiant. She was very cooperative and very accommodating. I highly recommend her services if you are in search of any type of wedding ceremony, religious or not. She is very knowledgeable and educated us on the history of weddings and reasons for some of the traditions many people follow. My husband and I were provided materials from Ari which allowed us to make our ceremony unique and individualized to our tastes.Sent on 08/30/2016

Rev. Khrymsun Parker worked with us to help us build a ceremony just for us. She doesn't judge if you have some weird requests or put things off, our first meeting with her was approx. 2 weeks before our wedding. Rev. Khrymsun was friendly and from our first meeting an absolute pleasure to speak with and work with. She responded quickly when we would send emails asking questions or requesting her assistance with a certain part of the ceremony.Sent on 03/28/2016
Alternative Wedding Services has a cache of knowledge about wedding traditions from a wide range of cultures and religions and they have ceremonies already written that you can use if you don't want to take the responsibility of writing or making changes to personalize your own. It is also easy to arrange payment for Alternative Wedding Services through paypal so you don't have to remember one more check in the middle of your planning.
Overall, our experience with Rev. Khrymsun Parker of Alternative Wedding Services was welcoming, supportive, professional, smooth, and enthusiastic. I will be happy to recommend her services to anyone who asks,
