  • We cannot say enough about Alice! From day one, she was incredibly responsive and we felt like we were old friends. The process was so simple and clear and the questionnaires she provided to learn about us helped to create the absolutely perfect ceremony. On the day of the event she was like one of the family and we got SO many comments from our guests on how warm, personal and "perfect for us" the ceremony was. We never even thought about cost since it was such an amazing experience. We HIGHLY recommend Alice to anyone who wants to create and have the ceremony of their dreams - we can't think of a better way to start our married lives!

  • Alice created the most perfect vows for us - they were so personal and thoughtful. It was as if a longtime friend was officiating us. Alice captured our love story perfectly and included our closest friends and family in our heartfelt union. The ceremony was our favorite part of the night, all because of Alice. Thank you so much!

    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!

  • You are not going to find a better wedding officiant than Alice Soloway. From our first conversation with her back in January, we felt as if we'd known her forever. We knew right away that we wanted her to help us create our ceremony. Every email, FaceTime session, phone call was filled with kindness and love and she made the process so easy. Our wedding was a week ago today and it was absolutely PERFECT. We have been to MANY weddings ourselves and it was the most unique, inspiring, fun, grounded, deeply connected and thoughtful one we have ever experienced. Of course we are biased but we have heard the same from our guests. At our reception, we were showered with praise and compliments for Alice's work. Everyone wanted to know who she was and where we found her. The compliments continue to pour in a week later. Alice, we will be forever grateful to you for helping us realize our truly UNCOMMON wedding. It was perfect and would not have been so without you to guide us. We ... Read more

    Dear Quincy and Rick, You inspire/d me! Working with you from day 1 was a fun, loving and grounding experience. And delivering your ceremony was exciting from the minute Rick walked down the aisle. It was no surprise that your community of family and friends was as loving and energized a you are. Wishing you the happiest life together.

  • Within minutes of speaking with Alice I was absolutely sure she was the person I wanted to perform my wedding ceremony. She was warm, supportive, and approaches her work with compassion and non-judgement. She provided us with material and options to help us personalize our ceremony. Working with her was incredibly easy and the ceremony she created with our input was easily the highlight of my wedding day. We hope to use her services for other life milestones. Thank you so much, Alice!!

    Dear Dorothy and Michael, Working with you was a joy. Your ceremony felt so intimate with your loved ones sitting amidst the beautiful expanse that is Storm King. And it really reflected your authenticity. It will be my privilege to celebrate more life milestones with you! Sending lots of love!

  • From the first time we talked to Alice while trying to find the right wedding officiant, she put us right at ease! We knew immediately that Alice was the right choice! And throughout the process, Alice continued to exceed our expectations! She was so easy to work with and took all of the stress out of planning the ceremony. She went out of her way to get to know us (Which was made more difficult by the fact that we moved across the country in the middle of the process!) and was able to craft a beautiful ceremony that truly captured us, our relationship, and our love. It felt so unique and personal and she did an incredible job of delivering the PERFECT ceremony. We were so moved by her words and her delivery, it made for a perfect day! When we think back to that day, the beautiful ceremony is always the first thing that comes to mind! We could not be happier with Alice and our perfect ceremony!

    Dear Andrew and Colleen, I loved getting to know you and getting you married. You (and your story) inspire me! Wishing you the very best in this chapter and all that is to come! Sending love, Alice

  • We’re so happy we chose Alice! From months before the wedding right up through the ceremony Alice helped guide us through the process and keep us on track. We spoke with Alice a few times on video chat and met her once for breakfast which was a great way to get to know each other and helped when the day came. Alice gave us pointers on what we should do and seamlessly integrated some special things we wanted to have happen during the ceremony. The ceremony itself went off without a hitch. Alice told the story of our relationship beautifully. We received comments from many guests on how they learned something new about us and how much they enjoyed the ceremony. We couldn’t have asked for anybody better to be part of that moment. We’re so thankful to Alice for her contributions to our wedding!

  • Alice put aside her own plans on July 4th to marry us. We asked for a short ceremony since this was just a private wedding as we planned to have a larger ceremony later. We wanted to get married by the river in Cold Springs and Alice found the perfect location and made sure it was secured and private for us when we arrived. Could not recommend her more highly.

    responded with the following comments.

    I loved marrying you by the river! it was fun greeting you as you came off the train, sharing your excitement as we got situated on the pebble beach, and feeling your emotion during the ceremony. Wishing you the very best! xx, alice

  • Alice is beyond amazing! She was so helpful and supportive throughout the entire process. Alice personalized the most beautiful ceremony specific to us as a couple. Being a interfaith couple, she included the traditions we wanted and tied in the customs by discussing what it meant to us as a couple vs its religious meaning. It was perfect. Alice is amazing!

  • Alice Soloway is a wonderful wedding officiant. She created a beautiful ceremony for our wedding at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. We knew when we met Alice, that she would create a warm, spiritual ceremony for us. We could see her professionalism immediately, and felt confident in Alice. She was very responsive to our queries. We loved her selection of readings and vows. On our wedding day, Alice spent some time with us before the ceremony, which was lovely. The wedding ceremony was so meaningful to us. Our guests also commented on our beautiful ceremony. We loved working with Alice!

    Dear Jen and Dave, I loved our in person meeting and those moments before the ceremony you allowed me to share with you and your loved ones. Thank you for the honor of being your officiant. Wishing you the happiest marriage!

  • I can't say enough good things about Alice. From the moment we first "met' with us via facetime, I know she would bring a personal touch to the ceremony that we so desperately wanted. The day arrived and 0% chance of rain turned into 100% chance of rain 5 minutes before all the guests arrived. Alice showed up right as we were scrambling, trying to figure out back up plans. Her sense of calm quickly reminded us of what the day was all about. Our crazy little ceremony was perfect and sweet and totally different. The whole time she was quietly cheering us on and keeping us focused. I would tell anyone to work with Alice. She is more than just an officiant!!

    responded with the following comments.

    Thank you Brooke and Roy! It was a scramble but the preparation we put into creating your ceremony grounded everyone despite the rain. It was sweet and intimate and I bet it kicked off a great celebration. Lots of love!

  • Alice was very helpful throughout the wedding process especially as I had lots of questions since we were doing a ceremony with a Brit + American. She answered all our questions, was very responsive, organized and made sure we were both secure with the whole process. She showed up on time and was very friendly day of, making all the family feel welcome. Great!
