  • Alice was the best officiant we could have asked for. We originally planned to elope at City Hall but we wanted a more personal experience and I’m so glad we chose to work with her. Our elopement photographer sourced Alice for us and I honestly couldn’t have picked anyone better myself. We had an initial skype meeting in the weeks leading up to our ceremony – with lots of technical difficulties on our end and she was very patient. She asked us about our relationship and how it evolved and turned our story into a very special ceremony. Alice is such a personable individual it made us feel completely at ease, almost as if we’d known her previously. The ceremony she wrote for us made us laugh and cry and will be something we remember forever. She even shared the ceremony with us afterwards so that we could pass along to our families who were not there with us. I would highly recommend Alice!

    Dear Madelaine, It was my honor to be your officiant. Your intimate ceremony in the urban garden setting was fantastic! I hope your friends and family shared the experience and felt the love from the photos and the script. Sending love, Alice

  • I was introduced to Alice through my elopement photographer. We had a private wedding and wanted to keep everything very intimate. I've only been to weddings where the officiants were religiously officiated or where the officiants were personal friends or family of the couple, so I really had no clue what to expect for my own wedding. Alice emailed us some questions, which were insightful and gave her an idea about our relationship. We had a call with her a few weeks later and she asked ceremony-specific questions, such as if we wanted to write our own vows, what we wanted to be pronounced afterwards, etc. When we saw her the night of our wedding, I really felt like it was seeing an old friend, despite the limited interaction we had with her and over a short period of time. I can't believe what a wonderful ceremony she presented, it was really personal, exactly what we wanted. That being said, if I could rewrite my vows, I wouldn't mention as much of what I did in the answers, as I pro... Read more

  • We are so glad we found Alice! I was really starting to get worried that we wouldn’t find the right person to marry us and the days just kept ticking by! When I found Alice I knew that I needed to be married by her. We were eloping with our young children and she made me feel so comfortable during our first conversation, it was like I’d known her for a long time. During our ceremony I felt like she really put time into creating our short ceremony. It was so personal and perfect. She made everything easy for us and even printed out our vows and brought them so we didn’t have to worry about it. Looking back, I can’t imagine having been married by anyone else. It is a day and ceremony that we will cherish forever.

    Dear Jessica, I will cherish your ceremony forever, too. You put together the sweetest, most intimate wedding and I was honored to have been included. Sending you and your beautiful family much love and good wishes for the happiest life!

  • Alice was the perfect officiant for our wedding. From the first time we had a Video call to the ceremony on our wedding day Alice was professional, easy to talk to, helpful and embraced everything about us. She wrote the most perfect ceremony for us and I truly could not have been more pleased. If you are looking for a ceremony that is individualized and someone who truly has an art for putting a couples life and love into words and presenting them flawlessly, Alice is the person you want. We have gotten more compliments on our wedding ceremony then I could have imagined. Alice was wonderful in every way.

    Dear Sarah and Patrick, Thank you! I will always remember your description of your long first date, and the feeling I had telling that story to your guests. Thank you for the including me in your day and being so much fun to work with! Wishing you both the best life together :)

  • Alice officiated our wedding ceremony on 6/29/19, and it was perfect. From the moment we met Alice, we knew it would be a good fit. She is warm, funny, and easy to talk to. She gave us a detailed outline for the timing leading up to the wedding, and of the day itself. Furthermore, she corresponded with all of our vendors prior to the big day to make sure everyone was on the same page. Alice's ceremony was funny (we asked for something lighthearted), lively, and deeply personal towards us as a couple. We truly could not have asked for a better officiant. Highly recommend!

    Dear Rebecca, Thank you for this feedback. I loved your ceremony and the process of creating it together. Performing it and feeling the love between you and the support of your guests set my heart "aflutter." Wishing you and Jamie the very happiest life together!

  • We are so happy that we went with Alice as our officiant. You can tell that she truly loves what she does, and she's an excellent writer and speaker. She worked closely with us to understand how we wanted our ceremony to reflect our love and our values, and in the process my husband and I got to reflect on what marriage really means for us. I'm very grateful that we got the chance to do that; it was a welcome break from the more mechanical aspects of wedding planning. During the ceremony, I felt completely relaxed and happy, and right after it was over I remember thinking, "okay, even if the reception ends up being a total disaster [it wasn't!], all will be forgiven, because that was beautiful." It was really the centerpiece of the day, which is what we wanted. We got to hear our story and our words about each other summed up so nicely by Alice, and I know our friends and family loved hearing it too. After the ceremony a couple family members asked me if I was relieved that part w... Read more

    Dear Louise, Thank you for this wonderful feedback. The best part is hearing that you and Brian appreciated and enjoyed the process. I loved being at Lambs Hill and agree! Let's do it again! Wishing you both a happy and healthy life together. And thanks again for the honor.

  • My husband and I wanted a ceremony that was personal, meaningful, and true to us. We searched around, but once we read Alice's Bio, we just stopped -- she was perfect. We had a video call to meet, and then we corresponded via email. The overall ease of the situation was outstanding. She had us fill out a questionnaire, then she took a crack at the ceremony. Literally everything was perfect, a few small tweaks, which were a result of us changing our mind on some content/tone. Every detail was discussed, from when to refer to my husband as "Robert" vs "Bobby", to how I as the wife wanted to be represented at the pronouncement (i.e. Husband & Wife, Wife & Husband, Partners, Mr & Mrs, etc). The day of the wedding, she showed up, got our witness signatures, confirmed some name pronunciation, and clarified some technicalities like whether or not we wanted to use a microphone during our vows or keep them personal. She took time to sit with me and make sure I was mentally and emotionally read... Read more

    Dear Beckett, Thank you for your appreciation and for remembering all the details. It reminded me of why I was so excited to work with you and Bobby, and why I loved your ceremony. You understand how to live life large, and that's a beautiful thing! Lots of love to you!

  • Alice was an absolute joy to work with--she went above and beyond to get to know us and tell our story in a heartwarming, humorous and touching way. I don't feel like people usually talk about the officiant at weddings, but everyone at our wedding raved about how Alice killed it :). She created a ceremony that was personal and meaningful and truly tied our wedding together and offered impeccable advice on our personal vows. She also directed everyone at the ceremony, made sure to have time to rehearse and make things go smoothly, and had a timeline working up to the event that she reminded you about (such as getting a marriage license). We could not have gotten married without her--literally and figuratively!!

  • Alice created the most perfect vows for us - they were so personal and thoughtful. It was as if a longtime friend was officiating us.

    Dear Debbie, working with you was a delight. I love that even though William was so far away, with technology, we were all able to work together to craft a personal ceremony. The feedback from your guests was priceless. Wishing you both a wonderful, love-filled 2019!

  • We had a wonderful experience working with Alice. She capably guided us through the process of creating our wedding vows. Through our calls and filling out a questionnaire, she created a very personal ceremony incorporating our love story. She was sensitive to this being our second marriage and came up with a lovely way to incorporate our kids into the ceremony. The ceremony went beautifully and smoothly. Alice kept our guest's attention and made us all cry.

    Dear Norah and John, It was a pleasure to work with you and to perform your ceremony. Feeling your love and the joy (and tears) of your family and friends was a privilege. Wishing you and your children the happiest life together! Warmest, Alice

  • I'm so happy that I was able to book Alice at such short notice. Her biggest asset is her warm and genuine personality. She gave us proper guidance on how to write our vows and make it sound more meaningful. She took the time to chat with us and get to know us as a couple. In the end, our ceremony really reflected who we were as a couple. It was a heartfelt and emotional ceremony for us and our guests. I highly recommend Alice as a wedding officiant.

    Thank you, Carissa. I'm so glad I was available! I really loved working with you. The venue was perfect and your guests were so appreciative. Wishing you and Daniel the happiest life together!

  • We were a bit hesitant about engaging an officiant for such a personal and important day, but Alice immediately set our minds to rest. Her intelligence, compassion, creativity and generosity were very inspiring and helped us create and experience that we could have never envisioned or realized without her. She truly values and honors the opportunity to join two people in marriage, a once in a lifetime moment for us that she made all the more wonderful. Thank you, Alice!
