I was proud to donate my services as the Officiant at this wedding for Wish Upon A Wedding. It was a special honor and I designed a wonderful ceremony for them. I received this wonderful review from them.
Alan Katz gave us the most beautiful andheartfelt ceremony people have ever expexperienced. There was not a dry eye in the house. He alternated from being funny to being deeply moving. He had all the guests involved too which I have never seen at a wedding. He even had many of my macho male guests crying. Every single guest told me it was the most moving and spectacular wedding they had ever witnessed. From the rose gifting,funny stories,ring warming,sand ceremony,etc. He even wore a pink tie and amazing suit for us. I had told him With God All Things Are Possible because of my cancer he remembered and made the guests say it in unison. Every guest told me they had goosebumps and were filled with tears throughout. I said I know because I could hear all of you crying.Alan all I can say is you have to be one of God’s real life angels because what you did at the ceremony was like bringing a piece of glorious Heaven on Earth.xp

There was not a single dry eyeamongst all the guests at Iran and Daymond’s Ceremony.
It was a beautiful sunny afternoon at The Riviera Country Club. Just minutes before Iran walked down the aisle, the clouds set in to cover the over-glaring sun. Iran & Daymond’s 6 year old son walked down the aisle presenting the wedding bands, followed by Iran & Daymond’s 15 year old daughter as Iran’s bridesmaid.
Iran walked down the aisle in a beautiful white gown provided by Mon Amie Bridal Salon. Every guest had tears in their eyes as they watched Iran walk to Daymond. The Officiant, Alan Katz, delivered a very heart-touching ceremony that had all the guests teary but very happy for Iran &Daymond’s love.
The ballroom was exactly what Iranhad envisioned! She was speechless as she and Daymond viewed the ballroom for the first time. Iran started every sentence with “WOW” when it came to the elegant floral arrangements, the lovely cake, the exquisite stationary, and the lighting. It was all the fabulous details of what she had envisioned for her big day.
Guests enjoyed an amazing candy buffet that was wiped out quickly. DJ Martin got ALL the guests out of their seats and onto the dance floor. He even demonstrated the dance choreography to the Y.M.C.A. and Michael Jackson’s Thriller. The guests really enjoyed it and learned it quickly.
The highlight of the reception, besides the unconditional support and love from the guests was the performancefrom Iran & Daymond’s daughter. With a beautiful voice like an angel, Iran’s daughter sang Rihana’s hit song “Stay.” Happy tears again were seen across all guests as they witnessed the power of love.
