Alan officiated my wedding this past June and he did an excellent job! We hired him only 3 weeks before the wedding and he met us right away and got everything over to us ASAP. He was professional, warm and I loved how we were able to pick from a book of passages and put everything in that meant something to us. I would absolutely recommend Cathy and Alan to anyone who was looking for an officiant.Sent on 08/22/2019

Great guy and Officiant
Alan was just great. He has a very calming personality which was definitely helped when we were at the alter. He was well priced and professional, two things that are great to have on your wedding day.Sent on 05/05/2019

We received so many compliments on our ceremony!
We had my father choose the officiant and we couldn’t be happier with his decision. Both Alan and his wife were professional, responsive, fun, and extremely nice and very helpful when it came to all of my questions. Neither of us had any idea where to start when it came to putting together our ceremony but soulmate celebration makes it extremely easy. We built it from different sections they offered and it was made specifically for us, by us which is very special. We received so many compliments on our entire ceremony, all of our guests loved it. We cannot thank you enough for making it official for us! We highly recommend soulmate celebration, you won’t be disappointed.Sent on 11/28/2018

We recently had Alan as our officiant at our wedding. We loved working with Alan and Cathy to put our ceremony together. The options for readings are amazing and beautiful. I loved that they gave us options to choose from, but that we could still personalize the ceremony however we wanted to. We chose to do a love letter ceremony, which really added an extra special touch to the wedding. Alan and Cathy were so nice and very responsive with any questions we had prior to the wedding. All of our guests had great things to say about Alan and the ceremony! Thank you so much Alan and Cathy for making our wedding ceremony so perfect!Sent on 05/20/2018
Soulmate Celebration's reply:Melanie & Casey, Cathy and I can't thank you enough for your wonderful review. We're thrilled that you were so happy with your wedding ceremony and we enjoyed sharing this special moment in your lives. We wish you two all the best

Alan and Cathy were both absolutely fantastic, and so accommodating! As we are from a neighboring state, they met up with us several months ahead of time at a midpoint location to discuss all the details and answer any questions. They provided us with a booklet that included many different options for readings in order to help guide us in customizing our wedding ceremony! We loved how customized we were able to make our ceremony, and that we were able to write our own vows. It truly made it feel as though the ceremony was made just for us! Alan and Cathy were always very responsive with any questions and concerns that came up along the way during the planning process. Alan even helped me to understand the process for obtaining a marriage license in RI. Come the wedding day, Alan and Cathy made sure our ceremony was short and sweet. I received several compliments from guests about how wonderful our ceremony was and how great the officiants were throughout the night. Also, Alan and Cathy made sure we had everything we needed in order to have our marriage license completed correctly, and sent it in to the Warwick City Hall for us. Overall their service was great, and I highly recommend Soulmate Celebration!Sent on 09/27/2017
Soulmate Celebration's reply:Roxanne and Michael - Cathy and I were blown away by your review! Thank you so much for your wonderful compliments and kind words, it's a very gratifying feeling to know that that we were able to help make your wedding the special and memorable day you deserve! We wish you a fantastic marriage and we thank you again for such a sterling review. Alan and Cathy
Stacey · Married on 09/02/2017
Alan and Cathy were a pleasure to work with! When it came to the details of planning a wedding ceremony, I was completely clueless and overwhelmed. They provided us with a booklet to help guide us, yet customize our ceremony the way we wanted. As questions arose, Alan and Cathy were right there to assist us. They are experienced, kind, warm professionals. If you are still searching for an officiant for your big day, I highly recommend Soulmate Celebration!!Sent on 09/24/2017
Thank you both for helping make our big day so wonderful and flawless!

Alan & Cathy were absolutely great to work with! From our first meeting with them, we knew they were perfect for us with their attention detail, passion for what they do, & belief in what marriage stands for. In our search for officiants, they’re the only ones that provide a “custom” ceremony service where you get to choose from a variety of verses what you want for each section of the ceremony. This was PERFECT for my husband and I because we were able to create a ceremony that best suited us, and knew what to expect on the big day! Since the wedding, we’ve received countless compliments on the ceremony & especially Alan’s delivery—he did an amazing job! For such an important moment in your life, you want someone you can trust to not only guide you through the process, but also make it a fun & memorable experience for you—Alan is that person. If you’re still looking for an officiant, stop now & book Alan & Cathy if they’re still available—you will not be disappointed!Sent on 09/12/2017

The moment I met Alan & Cathy of Soulmate Celebration Wedding Ceremonies, I knew I had found the officiate counterpart to our wedding / event planning & floral design business. I referred them to one of our destination wedding couples upon seeing how easy they make planning a ceremony locally or from a distance so easily. Their attention to detail and ability to facilitate what can seem overwhelming (the extensive planning of a wedding ceremony) in addition to their kind-hearted nature assured me I was referring my clients to the right people. They were able to take various aspects of their backgrounds and spiritual beliefs, and created a ceremony that was relative to them and that ushered in comfort for the couples' traditional families and guests as well. I highly recommend Soulmate Celebration Wedding Ceremonies to officiate your wedding!Sent on 05/31/2016

My husband & I renewed our wedding vows on our 30th anniversary on August 2, 2017. Alan created the most beautiful ceremony! He captured our sentiments perfectly. His wife Cathy helped organize to make sure all ran smoothly. We knew Alan would be amazing because he was the officiant for our daughter and son-in-law's wedding 2 years ago. Two memorable days in our family that included Alan & Cathy. Professional, flexible, and very accommodating! It was a pleasure to work with such lovely people.Sent on 08/11/2017

Alan & Cathy provided us with an INCREDIBLE ceremony! Alan & Cathy made us feel so at ease and captured us as a couple perfectly with handpicked readings to our very own love story being shared-and at a library venue! Our guests are still talking about how special it was to hear our love story and recognize those moments they were all there for!Sent on 08/22/2017
Soulmate Celebration's reply:Vanessa and Zack - thank you for such a wonderful review of our services. We take pride in providing couples a ceremony that everyone will be talking about for years to come. Being a part of one of the most important days in a couple's lives is an honor. We wish you both a lifetime filled with continued happiness and love.
Greg · Married on 07/01/2017
My wife and I got married in Newport, RI on July 1, 2017 and hired Alan and his wonderful wife, Cathy as our officiant! They were incredibly knowledgable, professional, thorough, understanding, and we were absolutely thrilled with our selection. Being from New York City, we wanted an officiator who knew the area, the venue, and all of the policies and procedures of doing an out of state wedding. Alan and Cathy made everything so easy and as a nervous groom standing up at the altar, Alan did a great job of keeping me calm, cool, and collected on our big day. Cathy handles all of the paperwork, ceremony notes, and logistics, while Alan handles the ceremony and all that comes with it. We HIGHLY recommend Alan and Cathy to locals of the area, guests from abroad, and couples like Erika and I looking for a wonderful non-denomination officiator in the great town of Newport, RI. If there were 10 stars - Alan and Cathy would have all 10.Sent on 07/27/2017
Soulmate Celebration's reply:Greg and Erika - wow, what a review! Alan and I considered it a privilege to work with you both of you on one of the most important days in your lives. We wish both of you all the best, and may you always be as happy and in love as you are today! Alan and Cathy

Alan & Cathy (Soulmate Celebration) were the BEST! They made our special day simply amazing, their support in every part of our ceremony from the time we first met them to the FUN fill day that we said I DO!

I would absolutely recommend to any couple looking for an officiant service to chose Soulmate Celebration! Alan and Kathy were beyond kind, responsive, and helpful. The thing my now husband and I loved the most was the fact that we were able to completely create our own ceremony based off of the examples and outline that these two have created! Since our wedding we have had so many compliment us on our ceremony. We were both so emotional and our vows were perfectly placed. I do not believe there was a dry eye in the house.

Helping my daughter plan her Rhode Island wedding from Australia was a daunting task at first. Their August 2016 wedding was actually their second wedding, their first being just the bride, groom, bride's father and groom's mother in attendance. My daughter really wanted her second wedding to her husband to be very romantic and memorable given that it was held so that the couple's closest friends and family could be in attendance to celebrate their love and acknowledge their union from all over the world, including Australia and Canada. We were so happy to have found Alan and Cathy of Soulmate Celebrations as they helped to make everything flow so beautifully during the ceremony. They were both so friendly, approachable and willing to work with all of the suggestions the couple had to make their ceremony special and memorable. My daughter sang to her groom as she walked down the aisle and incorporated a dove release in the ceremony. My daughter and her husband wanted to write their own vows and Alan and Cathy gave them a very helpful booklet to assist them in shaping their vows and the ceremony itself to make it unique and meaningful to them. Together, Alan and Cathy work as an amazing team and we were able to get in touch with both of them easily, with much of the initial planning happening from my end in Australia. Alan's amazing smile and warmth really added to the ceremony and there were many tears shed by those in attendance because the ceremony was delivered in such a touching and beautiful way. Thanks Alan and Cathy! I would recommend them to anyone. From one very happy Mother of the Bride :)Sent on 09/18/2016

We were absolutely thrilled with Soulmate Celebration and highly recommend Alan and Cathy. They were easy going yet very professional. And their enthusiasm and sincerity made our first meeting feel like it should have been our third or fourth. After hearing about their unique approach to a personalized ceremony, we knew they were the right team to marry us.Sent on 06/06/2016
We loved creating our own ceremony and choosing the words that best expresses how we feel. The booklet they created helped us find a perfect balance between a traditional religious ceremony that our families would enjoy and a spiritual ceremony we had envisioned. Their guidance in this process was invaluable and having people with their level of experience really put us at ease.
Our guests and family were very touched by the ceremony and everyone commented how Alan's delivery was very endearing and natural. There weren't many dry eyes in the room, including our own. And we both truly feel Soulmate Celebration made our day absolutely perfect.

We met with Alan and Cathy from Soulmate Celebration and right away knew we wanted them to marry us. They were just so helpful, professional, and we loved their energy. Alan performed our ceremony, and Cathy his wife helped coordinate the rehearsal and helped put together our ceremony.Sent on 03/22/2016
I loved how they gave us a booklet to help create and personalize our own ceremony. We were able to make it our own and the ceremony was truly a reflection of us. We were able to make our ceremony short and sweet, yet very personal and meaningful to us. Alan kept the ceremony light and we even had some laughs with our guests.
Our guests complimented us after, saying how much they enjoyed the ceremony and Alan. Everyone could hear Alan just fine, even without a microphone. Alan's delivery and timing was perfect. He took his time and gave meaning to our ceremony. It was absolutely perfect...I would not change a thing.
Alan and Cathy were helpful and had great suggestions for us. We told them we wanted a 20 minute ceremony and they helped create that for us. Whatever you would like, Alan and Cathy can help create that for you. Make an appointment with them today, I'm sure you will hire them on the spot just as we did!
Thank you Alan and Cathy for an amazing day!

They spent so much time and effort making sure that our ceremony (of course, the most important part of our wedding day!) was exactly the way that we wanted it to be. The ceremony was gorgeous and our guests especially enjoyed the uniqueness that was added by Alan reading our love story. We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful, intimate wedding. We were so blessed to have such a wonderful officiant!Sent on 10/14/2015
