“I am writing this 2 days after our wedding so everything is still fresh in my mind! I cannot say enough good things. From start to finish Alice was perfect in every way. She accommodated us when we had to postpone (twice!) and even did our legal ceremony over Zoom, which was also beautiful even through a computer screen.
Alice focuses on making your ceremony exactly what you want it to be. She asks a lot of questions in your initial consultation to get a sense of what you want and then even more questions about yourself and your feelings about your relationship to create the ceremony. It is actually substantially more in depth than I had ever expected. But when the time comes, boy was it worth it. All of our guests commented that it was so amazing because it was so PERSONAL. They all learned about our relationship because Alice asked us about our relationship! It wasn’t about her definition of love and marriage or some generic speech about love – it was a summary of our years together and what this day meant for us. This is particularly incredible if you’re a little too nervous to write and say your own vows.
Her ceremony script was our words – spoken a bit more eloquently and from someone more confident in public speaking. I left knowing what my husband felt for me and he left knowing how I felt for him and we got to be calm the entire time. Alice helped us include readings and a special candle lighting ceremony to add depth to the ceremony and tied them in at the exact right moments. She helped us honor those who have passed away and communicate our love and appreciation for our parents.
The ceremony was also the exact right length – not too long but also not rushed through. We had the attention of my guests for the entire time! Most notably, Alice came to see us before the ceremony started to give a little pep talk. Her energy was exciting and it reminded me that all will be well. She brought copies of the readings for our family members and made sure we had all of the props we needed. It was nice to see her beforehand and took the edge off my nerves. The ceremony is so important. The reception will always go well – there’s food, drinks, and music. The ceremony does indeed require some meticulous planning and it is important to have someone who interprets your vision and listens to what you want. It was exactly what I asked her for and will be a memory I hold onto forever. Even my tough exterior husband was happy at how personal and emotional it was. It was an incredible experience and SO worth the wait. Thank you, Alice!”
