Alice thoughtfully crafted and warmly delivered a beautiful ceremony for our 25th Wedding Anniversary and Vow Renewals. She fully captured our love story and made it accessible to our family and friends. Alice included a number of rituals in the ceremony
that both amplified our bond and pulled the assembled guests into our circle of love. Alice was a pleasure to work with and made the ceremony planning enjoyable. We were very happy with the entire experience!
We love Alice! She was exactly what we were looking for in an officiant. She is truly all about making your ceremony whatever you want it to be. Alice took time to get to know me and my husband even while planning our NY wedding while living in Texas.
Alice was always available by phone and email, and even video chatted with us to get to know us better. When Alice prepared the first draft of our ceremony we loved it all except for one part, and Alice was great in revising it with us. Our ceremony was just
perfect, and many of our guests even commented about how much they liked Alice and enjoyed our ceremony.
Alice was the perfect choice to lead our wedding ceremony! She is super responsive in the weeks prior to the ceremony and made sure we had everything set for the big day. She was a joy to work with in writing the ceremony and vows and it turned out to
be so "us" that our family could not stop complementing how perfect the words and descriptions were throughout. Alice brings an air of calm to a busy day and we could not have felt more confident putting our trust in her. She really took the time and energy
to get to know us and made us feel as special as the day was. I have no reservations in recommending her - Thank you Alice!
Alice was top-notch from day one! She captured our love story beautifully with her words and shared it with our guests in a sweet, intimate, and truly personal gathering. We were impressed by her promptness, sincerity, and genuineness---from day one she
came across as if she were a long time friend, not just someone we hired for services. She made sure we had all the information and guidance we needed, while giving us enough creative liberty to produce a one of a kind ceremony. We are grateful to have found
Alice and are truly honored to have her play a special part in one of our most special days. Thank you Alice for making our day so special and full of love! We highly recommend her and look forward to working with her again in the future!
I can't recommend Alice Soloway highly enough. We talked with a lot of officiants and celebrants when we searched for someone to perform our wedding ceremony. A lot of them offered canned ceremonies and minimal direct interaction. Alice was organized,
engaged and available throughout the complicated process of preparing for our wedding. She met with us in a restaurant at the beginning to get a feel for what we wanted. She listened to our preferences, and incorporated them into the ceremony. But she also
brought good ideas and suggestions to the table, drawing from her own experience as a celebrant. She incorporated both the traditional and the progressive easily. We wanted a meaningful secular ceremony, and Alice sent questions to both my wife and I to get
an understanding of how we met and what went through both of our minds along the way. She told our story with warmth and humor. She also helped us write our vows, going patiently through evolving drafts and offering helpful feedback. The day of the wedding,
she made everything happen: placement of people, and the order of the ceremony. She filed our paperwork quickly, and we got our marriage certificate back the week after our wedding. My wife said that it felt like Alice really tried to get to know us, and people
who attended our wedding said it seemed like she was more of a longterm friend.
When my fiancee and I set out to find an officiant, we were looking for someone smart and down-to-earth, who would get our unique story as well as our sense of humor, who could relate to the depth of our love and the lightness of our hearts; someone experienced
and progressive, with a reverence for tradition tempered by a creative spirit. Imagine our surprise when this absurdly demanding set of expectations was met by one person! Alice knocked every single one of our qualifications out of the park and after our first
meeting, we knew she was right for us. We had an immediate connection that developed throughout the planning process, as we learned we could rely on her for answers to nearly any wedding-related question we had. She kept us focused on the significance of the
ceremony and helped us create rituals that were meaningful, inclusive and funny, setting a joyful tone for the day. Her professionalism is extraordinary, she's cool under pressure, and my wife and I are lucky now to consider her a friend.
