We loved having Alan Katz as our officiant. He did such a wonderful job at our ceremony. I (the bride) was very nervous, but he has this coolness about him which kept me calm and collected through the entire thing. He did a great job at keeping smiles on our guests faces. That was very important to us. We wanted to make sure our guests had a good time as well as feel the seriousness of the moment. It was perfect. Sometimes things happen during ceremonies that can not be expected or controlled. We had a child off in the distance yelling throughout our vows. Alan handled it perfect. He was able to roll a joke about it right into what he was already saying. We had several guests tell me after how great they thought he handled it. He was able to turn a nightmare into a funny memorable moment. Also, after looking at our wedding photos he is very photogenic. He is smiling in all the photos and wearing the perfect colors which made our wedding photos perfect.

Alan was fantastic (and funtastic, too)! He helped us every step of the way, playful and relaxing, but serious when it counted. The service itself was awesome, with laughter, whooping and tears of happiness.

We could not have asked for better!

We have nothing but good things to say about Alan Katz. We're an out of state couple, so we had no chance to meet him before the "big day". He was always reachable over the phone, and he was such a personable guy when we met. Our family was impressed by how funny and outgoing he was with everything.

Alan is willing to go above and beyond whatever you need to have the perfect ceremony.

We are still waiting and waiting to get our marriage certificate. This isn't his fault, but LA county takes 6-8 weeks to mail it out. I can't change my name until I get it. : (

Oh my gosh Alan Katz is awesome, this was our second wedding and we wanted it to be fun but special and short and sweet. Alan delivered on all of those specifics. He was the perfect officiant for us. My husband and I didn't get board we listened to every word. I would highly recommend Alan to all.

Alan Katz at SoCal Officiant was great. We were looking for an officiant who was not too serious and would keep the ceremony light and entertaining. Alan Katz was just the person we were looking for. He even did our Marriage License so we didn't have to go to the County and stand in a long line. I highly recommend SoCal Officiant.

Alan was a good catch. All of my guests thought he was funny and sweet. The only problem I had was that I had gone over with him over and over to make sure he had the ceremony I wanted. As I had advised him that I had modified the version he had a little. He assured me over and over that he had it. Even on the day of the wedding as my husband had asked him as well to make sure he had the right version, alan assured him he did. As were coming to the end of our ceremony, of course he didnt have the right version, there were some very funny things i wanted said in there that were left out. However, despite all that... he did a really great job and my guests were laughing and crying, which is what we wanted. Alan did a really great job overall.

Apparently Alan had doubled booked himself and we got pawned off on a young woman from a church. We were her first legal same sex couple and that seemed to be more important than us. It didn't feel like our union was her first priority but rather a notch in her belt, very disappointing.
She was not easily reachable and required multiple emails and phone calls. We met with her to discuss our ceremony and ended up with an hour long marriage counseling, which while it was fine was not what we had expected.
More disappointing is that she hadn't taken the time (unlike our DJ) to learn how to pronounce our names, she butchered my wife's last name to the point of giggles from those who really knew us!
She had asked to bring along her photographer, who wasn't intrusive but once again made us feel like a piece of news versus the wedded couple we wanted out wedding ceremony to be.

Alan Katz was awesome! He did everything from our license to the ceremony. He also did what we wanted in a ceremony; we wanted it to be funny and memorable while also being a tad bit religious. Many of our guests came up to us and wanted to know how long we had known the officiant because he seemed to "really know us." They were shocked I had found him on the internet and met him a month or so prior. My boss loved him so much that she told him she wants him to be the officiant at her funeral; she just didn't have a date yet. ;)
