We loved working with Minister Alan through the entire process up to the day of our wedding. He was so helpful editing our vows, writing our ceremony, coaching us through the preparation process. He was the right officiant for us with his tone and words. We were looking for a spiritual ceremony that was custom-made for us and he gave us that. Thank you MInister Alan.

N & W, it was a great pleasure working with you to develop (and deliver!) the spiritual ceremony you envisioned. Best wishes!
Very easy to speak with and is willing to listen to different ideas. Would definitely recommend!
Minister Alan performed such a beautiful ceremony for me and my husband on November 4th, 2017. From start to finish, he was a pleasure to work with. Any time I had questions about the ceremony, the readings, our vows or any changes to be made, he responded right away and made that part of the wedding planning process seem like a breeze. All of our guests also told us how beautifully worded our ceremony was and I couldn’t have been happier. At the end of our ceremony I was so happy to be given the entire written version of our ceremony- it’s a great keepsake if you’re into that kind of stuff and he puts it in a really nice folder with your names on it. I’d highly recommend Minister Alan to anyone who is looking for an officiant, religious or non-religious because he really takes the time to understand what it is YOU want as a couple which is very important.
I would highly recommend Minister Alan to all couples. He was professional, responsive, and willing to create a ceremony for us that fit our vision. I was raised Catholic and my husband is Jewish; it was important to both of us to have our cultures represented without the wedding being overly religious. Alan co-officiated our ceremony with my husband's uncle who never performed a ceremony before. We were confident in this arrangement given Alan's expertise, organization, and can-do attitude. So many guests approached me at the reception and remarked on how beautiful the ceremony was, which was truly all because of Alan. Minister Alan was an absolute pleasure to work with, and if I had to do it over again, he would be my first phone call!
Minister Alan was so incredible from the moment we reached out for a first meeting all the way up to our "I DO's"! He was very on top of everything, always sending reminders and super helpful when it came to writing our own vows. We would highly recommend his services as you will not be disappointed!
Thanks Christina! It was my pleasure to work with you and Paul.
I am so happy we found Minister Alan. My (now) Hubby and I needed a fast, quick and easy ceremony to be done now and next year, we will be doing the big fancy wedding. I literally emailed Alan late at night and that next day, we were able to coordinate and arrange a time and place to get married. He was so quick with his responses and so accommodating. I couldn't believe he was willing to meet us within hours of reaching out to him. The place he recommended was also so beautiful. It was just perfect timing, perfect place and will definitely be keeping him in mind for next years big wedding. Thank you again Minister Alan!
I just love it when a plan comes together, Stephani. Twenty-three hours after you contacted me, you and Jason were husband and wife! Looking forward to seeing you both next year...
Minister Alan was amazing! He was so helpful throughout the process. I strongly suggest utilizing his services for your wedding!
Very professional and flexible, will guide you through your ceremony with tips from his experience.
Thanks so much, Kitty. It was my pleasure to work with you and Paul in creating your lovely marriage ceremony.
Minister Alan was very professional, organized and helpful. He sent us samples of vows and explained everything we needed to get our marriage license. He ran our rehearsal which was really helpful and did an excellent job officiating on our big day. He has a good clear speaking voice and everything about our ceremony went very smoothly. He even gave us a really nice binder of our vows, and all of the readings, and our marriage certificate after the ceremony was over which is such a nice keepsake. We found his price to be reasonable as well. Thank you Minister Alan we couldn't have been happier!
Minister Alan was easy to work with, we instantly felt comfortable with him. He gave us advice regarding our vows, ceremony readings, and how to prepare for our marriage license. It was a seamless experience.
A "seamless experience" for my clients is my goal. I'm so happy you were pleased!
Choosing a Minister is no easy task but my husband and I could not have been happier with our decision! Minister Alan was professional, prompt, organized and an absolute joy to work with (I believe he even moved a plant that was off center to make everything look better). We have received so many wonderful comments about how beautiful our ceremony was. It was a perfect day and we are so very thankful Minister Alan was a part of it. We would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a Minister, you will be very happy! Thank you again for a fantastic day!
Leigh Anne, my thanks to you and Scott for allowing me to share in your wedding day. I didn't realize that I got caught moving the plant, but it's all about symmetry in the photographs! Best wishes to you both.
Minister Alan was great. Very professional, walked us through the process. We felt very comfortable and happy with Minister Alan's services. I highly recommend him.
My thanks to you and Denia, Julio. It was a pleasure to perform your marriage ceremony in your lovely home. Best wishes!
Do not hesitate in booking Minister Alan! He was well worth every penny we spent. He was professional, very easy to work with, helpful in editing our vows to ensure they were similar in tone and length, and performed an amazing ceremony that set the tone for our entire evening. Through out our wedding reception, our family and friends were raving about how beautiful the ceremony was. We are still getting compliments on it months later!
Minister Alan was amazing and made our ceremony truly magical. We were really concerned about not having any religious items incorporated in the ceremony, but he worked with us to make sure it was very special and meaningful. He was also very open to our suggestions and edits-- taking the time to listen to our needs and adding personal touches that helped tell our love story. I would highly recommend him for any couple!
Amanda, it always helps me to write a special ceremony when the couple provides details and anecdotes about their relationship the way you and Michael did. Thank you!
Minister Allan was the best! He wrote a gorgeous ceremony and was extremely professional and made our day so special. We highly recommend him!
It was great working with you and Rich, Renee. Thanks for allowing me to be a part of your wedding day!
We chose Minister Alan after speaking with several officiants, and we are very glad we went with him. He was very professional and adept in customizing the ceremony to our needs, even making a valiant effort to speak some words in another language! Minister Alan was always responsive to all of our questions, and his empathy and attention to detail were exactly what we needed from him. In addition, several of our guests came up to us after the ceremony and mentioned that Minister Alan did a great job in striking the right tone for the setting and delivering his words in a way that really resonated with the guests. We are grateful for his role in our wedding, and we would highly recommend him to any couple.
Thank you, Jae. With a little coaching from you and Seulki, I was glad to have met your challenge of greeting the wedding guests in Korean!
I cannot express how happy I am with choosing Minister Alan as our officiant. The amount of people that came up to us after the ceremony to tell us how beautiful the words were that Minister Alan chose to use was overwhelming. Aside from the actual ceremony, working with Minister Alan was a great pleasure. We started with a very informative Skype call on a Sunday nonetheless to accommodate my husband and I's crazy schedule. He then walked us through selecting the perfect personal and ring vows by presenting us with various options. On the day of he was calm and reviewed everything with us both and really stood by my husbands side to guide him through the crowd as they walked to the ceremony location, which my husband still talks about how appreciative he was of that so that he could have a few minutes of solitude without guests continuously coming up to him. Overall I would highly recommend Minister Alan, he was one of our best choices in wedding vendors. Thank you for a great ceremony!
Christine, I'm glad that I was able to help you and Anthony temporarily stop thinking about the reception, and focus on your wedding ceremony. After all, THAT is the event to which you invited all your guests!
Minister Alan was great and we would highly recommend him to anyone looking for an officiant for their wedding. Preparing for the ceremony started months ahead and Minister Alan helped walk us through the process and was quick to respond to any questions we had. Day of ceremony he kept our anxiety to a minimum and the ceremony couldn't have ran any smoother. Everyone raved how much they loved it!
Thank you, Josh. It was a pleasure working with you and Stephanie to craft your marriage ceremony!
Wedding planning can seem strenuous, at times overwhelming… It can feel the entire day weighs solely on any one small detail. Luckily, we had Minister Alan on our side. Minister Alan understands these anxieties and manages his clients’ nerves better than one can ever hope for. Going far above and beyond the expected duties of an ordained minister, he offered us a level of confidence and provided us a sense of ease from start to finish. Leading up to our wedding Minister Alan guided us and spoke with us frequently. He helped compose our vows, then made sure they were perfectly executed. He helped select readings, then made sure the readers were confident. Minister Alan not only took the time to shape our ceremony, but he became immersed in our entire day. He quickly familiarized himself with our families, got to know our wedding parties, and most unexpected of all, he helped coordinate all vendors associated with the ceremony upon his arrival. As the ceremony took shape, and the 185 guests were eagerly listening, Minister Alan spoke like that of a true professional. He demanded attention, while still allowing all eyes on my wife and I. Although it was short, at our request, it felt like the most perfectly crafted twenty minutes. For all that went into it, Minister Alan made sure every second of the event had its purpose.
Minister Alan showed himself to be a man of few words, but somehow, very naturally, offered endless comfort. We may not have known him long before June 17th, but on that day, we felt he was truly there not just with his words, but also his heart.
Thank you, Gregory, for you kind and heartfelt words. Working with couples like you and Alexandra is what makes this profession so enjoyable. All my best wishes for your continued happiness!
Minister Alan was wonderful! At our initial meeting, he was extremely organized and prepared. He listened to our ideas for our ceremony and gave us many helpful suggestions along the way. When it came time for my husband and I to write our vows, Alan provided us with many great samples that we were able to look to for inspiration. Within a week of our first meeting, he sent us a draft of our ceremony and worked with us until every detail was perfect. He ran a smooth rehearsal and performed our ceremony on our wedding day without a hiccup. I received numerous compliments from our wedding guests about how great he was. I would definitely recommend Minister Alan to anyone looking for a wedding officiant.
Thank you, Jennifer. It was a pleasure to work with you and Michael, and I really enjoyed meeting your family members. Best of luck!
Minister Alan is FANTASTIC. We called several officiants before we found him and he was the most flexible and professional officiant we had talked to in our search, and so we met. Our meeting was at Panera Bread where we ate lunch and he got to know us. He was incredibly warm and easy to speak with. He was very detailed, explained all of our choices, what the process looked like, and the importance of the ceremony to us and our guests. Within a week, he had emailed us the draft of the ceremony in full detail for us to review, change, etc. He also provided the proper information for the legal process of getting the marriage license, changing the name, and filing for the marriage certificate.
Minister Alan also provided us with our rehearsal which we asked for rather late, but he did not hesitate to come to the venue and run through the process with ourselves and our families.
On the day of the wedding, we couldn't be happier with the ceremony. His voice is strong and he spoke to our guests with poise. My husband and I clung to his words, and while we had read it all before, hearing him say it was just beautiful. At the end of the ceremony, he gave us a bound hard copy of the ceremony that was read for us as a keepsake. When the wedding weekend was over, I received an email reminding me how to go about filing for the marriage certificate and who to contact. Above and beyond.
Minister Alan is one of the most kind and professional people I have worked with. I would recommend him for any type of ceremony, this man truly has a gift to make your day feel extra special.
I am humbled by your words Veronica, and thankful for clients like you and Nick. Best wishes on your upcoming honeymoon!
Alan was extremely professional and accommodating. He walked us through the process and ensured that we had everything ready. From providing examples for our vows and ideas on how to make the ceremony fit our personality and our style to the time he spent making corrections and suggestions on our vows and from making sure his attire matched our theme to the wonderful words that he chose for us which were truly appreciated by our family and friends. We highly recommend Alan.
Minister Alan was extremely professional and a pleasure for us to work with. We chose to have our Ceremony first and Minister Alan set the tone for what turned out to be a fabulous and memorable evening. The feedback from our family and guests confirmed that Minister Alan was a great choice. Thank you.
Marty, it was such a pleasure to work with you and Maria to incorporate elements of your separate cultural backgrounds into your marriage ceremony!
Minister Alan was absolutely fantastic! Alan was very on top of us during the whole process, and made my life as easy as expected for a Bride. He was very professional and a great public speaker. He gave us a copy of our ceremony months in advance so we could review and it and make any changes we deemed necessary. Our ceremony was perfectly tailored to fit our personal needs and requests. It could not have gone smoother. We are so grateful to Minister Alan for marrying us and making our special day even better.
Thank you Ashley. I am so pleased that you, Brian and I created the loving and faith-based ceremony that you envisioned from our first meeting. Best wishes!
Minister Alan did an amazing job at our wedding! From the day we met with him he was an absolute pleasure to be around. He helped my Fiance and I with our vows (he is an amazing writer!), and made sure all details were well executive and communicated to everyone involved with the wedding beforehand. We even had some mic issues in the beginning and that did not stop Minister Alan from providing a great wedding service. He acted as if nothing went wrong and continued on! He made our guests laugh and cry at exactly the right moments. We had several engaged friends ask how we had found him and would be so happy to see him again at their own weddings.
Thank you, Kelly. I will not let a technical glitch overshadow the importance and beauty of a solemn marriage ceremony.
