Dear Rev Alison,
We were a bit worried about finding an officiant on the internet. After working with you and having you as our officiant, we know it was fate! The ceremony was so beautiful, we appreciated that you were able to involve our families. We all became one family that day, thanks to your beautiful words and creative ceremony. There wasn’t a dry eye in the place. A mere thank you can’t begin to express our gratitude for all your help. You’re the best!

Dear Rev. Alison
From the day we first sat down and met with you, we knew that our ceremony would be the special event we knew it had to be. You were so wonderful and caring. The ceremony was so creative and fun–having our friends read aloud the “funny vows” that we randomly had the waiters give out, was perfection. There was so much laughter and so many tears of joy–everyone is still talking about it. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

To anyone looking for an officiant: Simply put, Rev. Alison is a GEM. My partner and I knew we wanted a spiritual, loving, unique and very memorable ceremony for our wedding, but
that is really all we knew. We met with Rev Alison and she instantly – GOT US! She was funny, attentive, warm, supportive and dedicated to her incredible craft. She shared great ideas and exercises with us to lead us to our perfect ceremony. She advised us on different rituals we could include such as; the flower ceremony – highly recommend it, the wine ceremony – bringing to faiths together in prosperity, the sand ceremony taking the place of the unity candle ritual because our wedding was at thebeach. It was perfect. We wanted to engage and include our guests in the ceremony to bring everyone together with love and a light heart- Rev.Alison was right there to suggest an ice breaker so to speak at the beginning. Again it was perfect.
Rev Alison really cared about us! And that cascaded throughout the entire process. (People thought we had known Rev Alison for years when in actuality we found her on the web) At the ceremony, she was warm, loving andhumorous – never preachy! She was professional, poised and articulate. She
really was our calming and nurturing force.

Our guests still talk about the incredible ceremony as if it was a journey we all took together. It was so US! Or personalities, our shared love and experiences and our commitment to one another was front and center for our community to share with us. And it was Rev Alison – as our minister, our
interpreter, our narrator, our advisor brought it all to life for us.

The ceremony was incredibly loving, real and heart felt. It was funny, light and joyous all at the same time. There was not a dry eye in the house and you could hear the laughter a mile away!

There were so many incredible pieces to our wedding that brought it all to life. But it began with Rev Alison. She was and is a truly amazing person
and is a light that shined on us. We are honored to have been blessed with her presence in our lives and we hope our thoughts and feelings of truth lead you to her as well.

Dear Rev Alison
We feel so blessed that we found you. Our wedding ceremony was everything we hoped for AND MORE. We never would have thought, growing up in the 60’s that the day would ever come that a gay or lesbian couple could actually walk down the aisle and exchange vows in front of family friends and our God. Thank you, Rev Alison from the bottom of our grateful hearts. We love you.
