  • Alan helped us make our wedding ceremony everything we wanted and more! My husband and I were referred to Alan from our vendor contact, and he definitely delivered... He was personable and professional and added just the right amount of warmth and humor to the ceremony. We were able to meet with Alan and talk with him over the phone and email several times prior to our big day so although we did not know him personally, he still delivered the ceremony with a sense of who we are and our love. We had an arbor made by my father and Alan made sure to incorporate that into the speech as there were events that happened with the arbor at the rehearsal. And he was able to do so in a way that was comical yet also allowed for marriage advise. It was so well received that all of our friends and family still talk and laugh about it! So needless to say, Alan gave us memories that will last our lifetime and made our wedding day even that more special for us. Would highly recommend and cannot than... Read more

    I apologize. I had just been overwhelmed with spam calls. I know I've lost your confidence and I am so very sorry. I hope you'll accept my very best wishes for a great and happy wedding. Alan Neale

  • Alan was our wedding officiant in October. He was an absolute dream to work with! He did such a wonderful job of walking us through what the options for our ceremony were and helping us with any decisions we needed to make. He was extremely open to anything we wanted to add or change. Alan did a wonderful job of incorporating two readings that were very special to us into our ceremony. He was a wonderful calming force and put all of our nerves at ease. I had multiple guests come up to me after the ceremony and tell me how wonderful they thought Alan was. He is an absolute class act and we are so grateful that he was a part of our special day!

  • Working with Alan was simply a delight. He was very helpful and responsive throughout our entire process. He always seemed sincerely/genuinely interested in getting to know us - he was able to make our ceremony super personal and as if we had known each other for years. We had so much positive feedback about our ceremony, from religious and non religious alike. Alan comes with our highest praise and recommendation!!

  • We had Alan officiate our wedding last weekend (10/12/19) and our ceremony was absolutely perfect. We actually booked Alan well in advance (over a year in advance in fact) because I just loved him that much the very first time we met him. From beginning to end, working with Alan was easy and fun. He worked with us to put together a ceremony that included everything that we wanted and was always kind if/when we wanted to make changes. During the ceremony he was genuine and real and brought his humor (that I loved so much) at all the right times; it felt like we had known him forever and we were being married by an old friend. We had multiple guests say how much they loved him and how they would want to have him officiate their weddings/vow renewals. Alan is just absolutely the BEST at what he does. Thank you, Alan, for everything!

    Thank you very much, Bethany. Did you send me some pix recently, can't find any. God bless you and Jimmy, Alan

  • It is very difficult to find words to describe how honored and privileged we were to be married by Alan. He was the first officiant we met with, and before the end of our first meeting, we formally asked him to perform our marriage ceremony. His passion and energy made our decision easy. During our planning stages, Alan worked with us to craft a custom ceremony that matched our personalities. He guided us as we compiled the various steps and consulted as we worked to integrate our cultural backgrounds. Guests, often focusing on florals and other aesthetic elements of the wedding, raved about Alan and how beautiful the ceremony was. I own and manage a wedding venue and have the privilege of working with some of the industry’s leading event professionals. Among all my experiences, Alan was among the most sincere and amazing officiants I have ever worked with. We were honored to have him as part of our day and could not recommend him more.

    Oh thank you so much Zac. Very moving and affirming. It is very special for me to receive such a review especially from someone who is a professional in so many ways. With affection and thanks to you both. Alan

  • Alan is extremely charming, funny and insightful. We loved working with him. We felt instantly at ease with him and we loved how much he really gets to know you. He put a lot of time and thought into our ceremony. It was an amazing day. We could not ask for more.

  • Alan was so great to work with from the beginning. He lets you tailor the ceremony to however you want, has done so many weddings so has great suggestions, and is super funny and a pleasure to work with. He kept our ceremony short and sweet but was also funny and sentimental. He is amazing and we highly recommend!

  • After searching through dozens of officiants online, we felt like we would never find the right person to officiate our ceremony but our luck changed when we found Alan. We were planning our Newport wedding from NYC and Alan was extremely flexible to set up multiple phone and Skype calls. After our very first conversation we knew Alan was the perfect fit for us. He is incredibly easy to talk to and really took the time to get to know us over the phone and understand what we wanted in our ceremony. It is hard to put into words how incredible our ceremony was and how appreciative and thankful we are for having Alan in our lives. It has been one month since our wedding and guests are still talking about "the best wedding ceremony have they have been to." Everyone was in tears and it was the spiritual and meaningful ceremony we wanted. All of our guests asked how long we had known him and assumed he was a longtime family friend. If you are looking for an authentic and mean... Read more

  • Alan is one of the greatest people we’ve ever met. He’s an expert at what he does and he always makes us laugh! He is kind, professional, and very down to earth. Alan went out of his way to meet our needs, such as scheduling Skype dates to accommodate our pre-marital inventory sessions. We couldn’t have asked for a better wedding officiant! Alan made all of our ceremonial dreams come true!

  • We cannot recommend Alan enough. He was kind and approachable throughout the whole preparation process, and the day-of ceremony was even better than we could have ever hoped for. He strikes the perfect balance between seriousness and humor, traditional and modern, and we had many guests comment on how it was one of the best wedding services they'd been to! Alan makes everyone feel welcome, and also takes the time to get to know you as a couple and convey that on the day-of. We wish him the best and strongly recommend him to any couples getting married.

  • I don't know where to begin with Alan Neale. He was absolutely amazing. I can't imagine my wedding without him. From our first meeting till our wedding day, Alan truly cared about getting to know us. My husband and I are not that religious so we were concerned about finding the right officiant. Alan incorporated who we are and enough religion to make us incredibly happy. From getting to know us he incorporated our love story in ways we never saw. It was truly touching. After the ceremony people came up to us to congratulate us and then next thing was to say how much they loved Alan. He made us cry, he made us laugh, he truly was the greatest decision we made in our wedding planning. He is not just the officiant we had for our wedding, he is friend and we know we will see him again. Thank you so much Alan.

    Thank you, Siobhan. You have made this old priest happy and honored. Alan

  • Alan is a beautiful person who invests his heart and soul into the couples whose weddings he officiates. My husband and I were the first LGBT couple married at Trinity Church in Newport, RI and Alan was our officiant. We met with Alan several times before the wedding, by video conference since we live far away, and in person. Through the course of our sessions we of course learned more about Alan, and him us - but we also learned how to be better partners to each other. More than an officiant, Alan became an advisor and a friend. So many of our guests remarked that they'd never been to a wedding service that felt quite like ours - a feeling we credit to Alan. We wholeheartedly recommend Alan to anyone who wants a service imbued with love and holiness.

  • My husband and I could not be more thrilled that we chose Alan! He is so easy to talk to, witty, and personable that you feel close to him immediately! He did SUCH and amazing job with our ceremony! He can truly handle anything on his feet... We had a beach wedding and for some reason, there was a very aggressive mute swan that decided to join our ceremony !! Alan first off, didn't flinch, didn't miss a word, and handled the entire situation so Incredibly. He has the best voice and did such a beautiful job with everything! Also, my husband is Jewish and I am Christian and our ceremony was a perfect mix of both! Alan, helped us create the perfect blended ceremony. People kept coming up to us saying how much they liked Alan and what a great job he did!! He is the best of the best!
