Here is what Couples say about Us
"It really was the most amazingly beautiful ceremony, and I can't possibly imagine it getting any better than that. You truly made that day special for us, and it was undoubtedly the happiest day of our lives. I will never forget it, and I will never forget you. I'm so glad we found you. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts."
- Linda and Mike
"Lana and I want to thank you for a flawless job at our wedding. You were very professional, entertaining, well-spoken, and all the other things an Officiant should be. A number of guests approached me and paid you compliments. One guy thought you were a close friend or family member, because you seemed so comfortable and at-ease."
- Steve & Lana
"We just wanted to thank you for all you did for us on our wedding day. Your performance was phenomenal! Our guests couldn't believe that we met you only an hour before the ceremony because you made us so comfortable. When the rings got left in the limo, you were "johnny on the spot" trying to get them back. Our ceremony wouldn't have been as memorable or hysterically funny without you. From the second you stepped up at the mic, you got the party started and had the crowd eating out of the palms of your hands! Let's just say that the compliments are still coming in to this very day, which you truly deserve! There just aren't enough words say to thank you because you were so wonderful to us from day one but here we go. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! Having you perform the ceremony was an honor for us cause you didn't treat us like clients you treated us like family."
- Kimya & Jamie
"Thank you so much for your performance at our wedding. Although I did not get to physically meet you until the day of the wedding you still knew exactly what to say and how to make our wedding fun. I loved how you said “if anyone opposes us getting married, the exit is right there.” That was awesome. My best friend’s mother is very Christian and she told me that she has been to many weddings that were in churches and all serious. She said she had never been to one that was so relaxed and so much fun and she loved the ceremony. Thank you so much for what you did for us. It was just so great. We will recommend you to everyone we know."
- Cody and Alayna
"I just wanted to take the time to thank you for making our day so wonderful. You have a delightful personality Alan and it made what we were doing so much more relaxed. We appreciated everything about you and your services. Good luck with all of your endeavors and Gods Speed."
- Ed and Debbie
"Chris and I wanted to thank you for both a beautiful, funny and touching ceremony for our wedding. You made us feel very special and that our wedding was as important to you as it was to us. I know Marghi and Sharon felt the same way. It must be a true pleasure to have a job where you can make people so happy all the time! We truly appreciated your hand holding, your preparedness (on what you can see is probably always a chaotic day) and the beautiful and funny ceremony that you did as everyone had a good time and really loved being there. We thought you did great!"
- Scott & Chris
"We were very honored to have you marry us. There were many comments about the ceremony. You exceeded our expectations for the ceremony. A number of guests commented about what a great reverend you are. I would refer your services in a heartbeat to any new couple. Thank you again for being part of our special day."
- Vanessa & Damon
"We would like to say thank you so much for everything you did for our wedding! Everything went wonderfully that day and I think everyone had a great time. The ceremony was perfect and we owe that to you!"
- Zakk & Amy
"I wanted to thank you for the wonderful, fun ceremony. We really enjoyed ourselves. My daughter and son-in-law were equally amused. We had a lovely lunch on the waterfront."
- Ron and Robin
"First of I wanted to start off by thanking you sooo much for doing such a great wedding ceremony. You were fun, organized and professional and I got nothing but compliments about you the rest of the night from my family and guests. I will let you know that I was a bit nervous not meeting you until the day of the rehearsal but that night when you showed up you made all of those thoughts go away. So thank you soooo much for making my day more special than it already was."
- Stephanie and Stephen
"We want to take the time to say, "Thank you" for such an awesome job at our rehearsal as well as the wedding. The laughter you brought eased the nervousness. Our guests stated that you were the best minister that they've ever seen! Again, thank you!"
- Troy & Tina
"Thank you so much Rev. Ralph. The ceremony was the best--we couldn't ask for more. It was a true blessing for us to have worked with you and we will be more than happy to recommend you to any of our friends and family members who plan to get married. Once more thank you and God bless you."
"Our ceremony is still being talked about in glowing terms! I like to think it is partially due to my new husband and me. We had no problem setting an in-person appointment with him at his office in Long Beach and immediately we felt like he was an old friend. He also took care of the marriage license, so all we had to do was sign on the dotted line. His personality and style may not be for everyone, but if you are looking for someone who is a genuine nice person, loves what he does and is funny enough to be on SNL, then this is your Officiant. He made everything so easy and relaxed that my husband and I were able to add our on “adlibs” during the ceremony. During the reception our guests made a point of telling us that it was one of the best ceremonies they had ever seen; loving, but fun like us!"
- Angela and Joe
"Thank you so much!! We were so happy to have had you marry us. Our Family loved the ceremony and said it was totally us! You made are dream come true and we cannot thank you enough!"
- Daniela and Carlos
"Hope you are doing well! Angela and I just wanted to drop you a line and say THANK YOU SO MUCH for the absolutely wonderful job you did for us on our wedding day! You were perfect and actually kept us very calm. We would have emailed sooner, but it's been non-stop craziness since the 17th. Also, sorry we could not get together with you for a photo for the website, but, like you said, once the ceremony is over, everyone immediately forgets what happened before it! The Wedding was wonderful!!! Thank you so much!!!"

"Alan, we cannot express how much we appreciate everything you did for us last week. You are the most incredible Officiant any of our guests have ever seen and we are the richer for it. They were all raving about the ceremony! Despite the many things that went awry that day, it was YOU who not only held things together, but made it all so much fun and just plain wonderful. The best thing we can do is to try to tell everyone who will listen that- Alan Katz is the best Officiant in California for one reason... he CARES and it shows!. You are a great guy and we will always remember your warmth and your wit in the most trying of circumstances. If you ever need a reference please do not hesitate to contact us. You guided us through the gate onto the path of our future together with such compassion, hope and love, that we just know we'll be together "forever-MORE!" Thank you so much for being the unexpected angel you are. May God bless you for all that you do. You are truly a righteous dude!"
