Alina was wonderful. She put together a perfect ceremony for my husband and I. We were looking for something non-religious that told our story and was very personalized and she more than delivered. There was barely a dry eye in the house. She was great about meeting with us on... Read More Skype and in person to put everything together, and gave us some great ideas.

I'm Ali, I'm a wedding officiant, and I'm a sucker for a photo booth. I believe in two things above all else: butter, and love stories. But I also believe this: your wedding ceremony shouldn't be boring. I'm not just a minister, and I don't just marry you. I marry you your way, from the bottom up, helping you craft a wedding ceremony that resembles you. So hit me up, and let's get wed!
