Working with Alan was an absolute pleasure. He guided us through the ceremony crafting process, provided us with sample vows, and kept on top of us with respect to important deadlines (e.g., obtaining our marriage license). On the day of, Alan took charge, met with the wedding party and ran through a rehearsal to get everyone on the same page. His calm demeanor was a welcome comfort as he lead us through a flawless ceremony.Sent on 09/12/2014

First time writing a review and I am very happy to do so. I can not describe how satisfied my husband and I were with the professionalism and quality of service provided to us by Minister Alan. My husband and I relocated to DC few months prior to our wedding and Minister Alan was extremely accommodating, he set up video calls which felt no different from in person meetings. Minister Alan did a great job at our rehearsal and was extremely patient with us when we ran late to the hotel for the rehearsal. He took the time to explain the role of each member of the wedding party and made sure there were no surprise on the day of the wedding. Our wedding was a dream and we want to thank Minister Alan for helping us make it a reality.Sent on 08/27/2014
MINISTER ALAN's reply:Zineb, the best surprise is NO surprise. I'm so glad you were pleased with your ceremony!

Dominique · Married on 12/07/2013
Alan was the consummate professional. From the moment we asked him to marry us, we were taken care of with a great combination of sensitivity, thoughtfulness, and attentiveness. He had an incredible array of vows for us to choose from and was completely supportive in our desire to mix-and-match to come up with whatever we really wanted. As a same-sex couple, we had previously had a religious (non-legal) ceremony, and people who attended both claimed that Alan's short sermon was better than our priest's! Even though we had already been married once, it did bring tears to my eyes. I would recommend Alan to any and everyone looking for a non-denominational wedding ceremony that still has a feeling of sanctity and importance. And the fact that he's good humored and lighthearted as well doesn't hurt!Sent on 02/15/2014
MINISTER ALAN's reply:Dom, I will always fondly remember the wedding ceremony I wrote and performed for you and Brian as my first for a same-sex couple. Thank you for allowing me to a part of your very special day!

Amanda · Married on 11/05/2016
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!Sent on 11/08/2016
MINISTER ALAN's reply: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!

Professional, Thoughtful and Poised
From the moment we met Minister Alan, he gave off a strong sense of confidence and professionalism. With everything from our initial discussion to the ceremony itself, on December 1, Minister Alan took charge and made us feel reassured and comfortable with his knowledge and calm demeanor. He took the writing of our ceremony very seriously and welcomed feedback and accommodated our requests and offered feedback on each of our vows. Our rehearsal ran extremely smooth and everyone was able to understand their roles quickly because of his experience and guidance.Sent on 12/08/2018

Minister Alan was very professional and approachable throughout the entire planning process of our wedding ceremony. He answered questions and offered feedback quickly and honestly. We had one initial consolation where we spoke about what was important to my fiancé and I, to include in our ceremony. He made our ceremony personalized to us and gave us a typed out copy of our enti9re ceremony. I would definitely recommend Minister Alan to officiate your wedding!Sent on 06/01/2015

The very first thing you realize when you meet Alan is how organized he is! As a very organized person myself, I really appreciated the time and detail Alan spent explaining to us how the entire process works. Having done my research and met with a few other ordained ministers, I can honestly say that his professionalism and organization far exceeded the others. He worked with us to create the ceremony we wanted, without pushing us on any matters. He sent us numerous documents to choose wedding and ring vows. He typed up and sent us the entire order of the ceremony, where everyone would be, what he would say, and even prepped us on when we would speak. I could not have asked for a better minister; the entire process went smoothly. I highly recommend Alan to any couple getting married.Sent on 08/25/2014
MINISTER ALAN's reply:There are a lot of details in planning a wedding ceremony Melissa, so organization is a must. But, we also have fun in doing so! Thank you for the kind words.

Our wedding came together very quickly and happened in our home. We didn't know what we wanted other than a desire to keep it simple. Minister Alan steered us in the right direction and created a personal and poignant ceremony that was perfect for our needs. For two people that debated just getting married at city hall, we could not be happier with the ways in which minister Alan helped make this a special day we will never forget.Sent on 07/09/2014
MINISTER ALAN's reply:Eric and Dan, I was very pleased that you chose to hold your wedding ceremony in your beautiful home, surrounded by family and friends. That's what makes for great memories!
