Notable Wedding Review
My husband and I found Great Officiants through our wedding planner, who assured us they were the best in the business. We contacted them via their website, and received timely responses. We were informed that Alan Katz was available on our wedding day, and we set a call up with him to learn about their packages and process. Alan was very friendly, and explained the entire wedding ceremony process and his role clearly to us. Upon ending our conversation, we decided to book Alan to officiate our wedding, and decided to choose the personalized ceremony package. We filled a relationship questionnaire, and had another planning call with Alan a couple of weeks before our wedding. He asked us what we would like to include in our ceremony, and helped guide us through the timeline of the ceremony. The day of the wedding, Alan met with my husband and I before the wedding, and again reminded us of the different sections of the ceremony timeline. Once Alan took charge, the ceremony was a breeze! He added several personal notes we had included in our relationship questionnaire, and kept it funny and romantic! The humor helped us with the overwhelming emotions we were feeling, and eased our nerves! After the ceremony, several people told us that they loved our ceremony and complimented Alan! The ceremony was both of our favorite part of our wedding day, thank you very much Alan for making it memorable, we’re going to cherish this for the rest of our lives!
