  • We were so lucky to find Alice for our Central Park wedding, and can't recommend her highly enough. Finding an officiant was top priority for us, but we wanted to find a particular type of person. In our experience, celebrants are often a bit "showy" and somehow make the ceremony more about themselves than the couple. However, as soon as I read Alice's profile I knew she was different. She responded to our email straight away with a kind message, and suggested a Skype call. She was warm, down to earth, and interested to learn about our personalities. She talked us through the legal stuff, listed the pros and cons for different locations, and gave us different options for vows. She also recommended our fabulous photographer Jocelyn Voo who she's worked with before. As for the ceremony it was everything we wanted it to be. Alice has a really calm aura so she helped my husband relax whilst he waited for me in the park. She told our story and read our vows in such a beautiful way that ... Read more

    Thank you Laura! Chatting with Stefan while waiting for you to arrive was special. Getting to know you both and pronouncing you "married" were highlights of my year! Wishing you love and the happiest life together!

  • My wife and I re-read through many of the positive reviews on Alice’s site before writing our own and found ourselves nodding “yes, yes, and yes” in wholehearted and enthusiastic agreement with all of them. Alice is truly as warm, professional, respectful, supportive, and, most importantly, as amazingly personable as everyone else has said and then some! My wife and I are both introverts by nature so we decided to skip writing our own vows but didn’t want to lose the personal touch that comes with the gesture. We also wanted to keep our ceremony simple and concise but still convey our great love for each other in a meaningful way. When searching for an officiant, we mentally prepared ourselves to settle for “good enough” but then we came across Alice’s site. Between the rave reviews and all of the heartwarming photos of Alice with the other couples lucky enough to have been married by her, we had a gut feeling that we found someone great. From our introductory ... Read more

    Dear Jonathan, your winter wedding was a highlight of my year. Rereading your ceremony today made me fall in love with you and Sarah all over again. Wishing you the happiest upcoming one year anniversary and a lifetime of love. – alice

  • I wanted an officiant that would be able to create a meaningful, secular ceremony. Alice delivered above and beyond. She starts with a questionnaire, which is extensive, but she was able to incorporate our personalities, dreams, hopes for our future so wonderfully based on the information we gave her. People were raving about her ceremony - my friends and family members asked how she knew me so well! She was able to create a ceremony that was deeply personal, meaningful, and tailored to our exact wishes, but beyond our imagination! She was professional throughout, making the entire thing seamless. Go for Alice!

    Thank you, Mallory! I loved working with you and Kevin from the moment I met you. Wishing you a lifetime of good health and happiness together! – alice

  • We were lucky enough to have been able to pick Alice from Pop the knot. Alice was absolutely amazing to work with. She asked us questions to help personalize our wedding. She took that information and doctored it up to make it feel like something out of a movie. She was so warm and kind. She was so elegantly spoken. We felt like when she was speaking she took what we wanted to convey about our love and hit it out of the park. We live out of state and she so graciously submitted our marriage application for us which was a tremendous help since we were leaving NYC the next day. I would recommend Alice over and over. There are not enough amazing things I can say about our experience with Alice. I am so happy that she was our officiant.

    Dear Jenna, Thank you so much for your feedback. It was an honor to tell your story and celebrate your love and commitment to each other. Many thanks!

  • From the moment my husband and I met Alice, we knew she would be the perfect officiant for our wedding. Alice is calm, compassionate and warm. In the lead up to the wedding Alice was extremely helpful, thoughtful and responsive. Alice wrote the ceremony for us, based on a questionnaire my husband and I both completed about how we met, how our relationship has evolved etc. The ceremony Alice wrote for us was the perfect balance of emotion and humor -- exactly what we were hoping for. Some of the wedding guests thought we knew Alice — that’s how part of her family she makes you feel! We highly recommend Alice.

    Dear Charlotte, I fell in love with you and Mike the moment we met at Lea's, and working with you was so much fun! Thank you for the honor and for this lovely review! With love, Alice

  • 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

  • We were so lucky to find Alice as our wedding officiant! She was so perfect for our wedding ceremony. We didn't want anything too traditional or generic... but also nothing too serious or emotional. Especially, because I really did not want to tear up on our wedding day. Alice understood all of our requests - She set such a lovely and witty vibe, but with so much thought and love put into our ceremony. Everything felt extra special - our favorite part was when she talked about our Love Story: How we met and what we love about each other. That really made our guests laugh.. it was a heart-warming story! It really added that sweet personal touch to the ceremony. Alice is very professional and is so on top of everything. She provided us with first draft, second draft, cue sheets.. she was able to guide us on some parts where we felt clueless during our planning process. Our FaceTime interview with Alice went smoothly and she made sure we covered all the details and agenda for the cerem... Read more

  • What an ABSOLUTE pleasure it was to find Alice and get to work with her. She is an outstanding human being and we are so grateful to have someone like her in our lives. I heard her name in the very beginning when we first started wedding planning (circa early 2017), but it all got a little overwhelming, so finding an officiant took the backseat to booking the venue, DJ, floral, etc. Then when my planner mentioned her name again probably about a year later, I knew it was fate. Boy, was I THRILLED that she had the time and ability to work with us for our wedding! I swear I’ve been bawling my eyes out since I received the first custom draft of our wedding ceremony. My husband was making fun of me when we sat down to read it for the first time – I started crying at the end of the first line. It went above and beyond my wildest dreams – it was detailed, well written, emotional, hilarious, chock full of love and passion, all encompassing, and it reflected our 12 years together as a cou...

  • We are so happy that we were able to have Alice perform our ceremony! She was supportive, thoughtful and communicative throughout the process. We needed an officiant for a small elopement ceremony and we were so excited that Alice was available. We were able to complete the whole process through telephone and email. She made everything so easy! She sent us thoughtful questions and communicated with us before the ceremony. When the day came, it felt like we already knew her. The ceremony she crafted was meaningful and sweet. She perfectly captured our relationship. Everyone was so touched by her words. We continue to get compliments from our family. We are so grateful to Alice!

    Thank you, Amelia. Working with you to create a ceremony that reflected you and Sven was fun! And performing it lakefront (with the birds looking on) was very moving. Wishing you both a lifetime of happiness!

  • 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!
