Ari is a riot and a half. When my fiance and I first met with her, we knew right away she was the right person to officiate our big day! We're far from a traditional couple, and she had so many resources and ideas that helped make our ceremony as 100% unique and special as our relationship is. She even did a dead on impression of the "impressive clergyman" from the Princess Bride at our rehearsal and got some serious laughs from family and friends. Guests are still coming up to us and saying how special, unique, and beautiful the service was and that's 100% due to Ari's expertise and willingness to help us come up with the perfect words.

Rev. Khrymsun Parker performed our wedding and it was everything we could hope for. We were looking for something unique and fitting in with our fantasy/Celtic themed wedding and Rev. Khrymsun Parker as well as the company was a perfect fit! She arrived early enough to walk us through briefly and to get the last minute details locked in. She is very friendly and answered any questions we had all through out the process leading up to our big day! So glad i found this company online and i will recommend them to everyone i know that is looking for something different in their wedding!

We love Reverend Ari! She was so helpful in writing our ceremony, and did a beautiful job in conducting it! Finding a business like hers was a relief to us, who really wanted a non-traditional ceremony that would be a better reflection of who we are. If you're looking for someone to create a really lovely, unique ceremony for your wedding, completely tailored to your preferences, and would like to work with a really fun, sweet lady, look no further than Rev Ari!

Rev. Dayl from Alternative Wedding Services was wonderful! She was very responsive and always emailed me back promptly. We met with her to get an idea of what she offered and if we felt comfortable with her. She was great and after we signed a contract she emailed several ceremonies. We were able to cut and paste from a few of them to put together a meaningful ceremony for us. She even helped us incorporate my stepdaughter. I highly recommend Alternative Wedding Services, they helped make our wedding day fabulous!

Arianna Gray was the officiant for our daughter's wedding on June 20th. We had an international contingent and Ari was there to walk them through the rehearsal the evening before. She scored some serious points before the ceremony when she helped steam some wrinkles out of my dress; her willingness to jump in wherever needed was something I hadn't expected! The ceremony was magnificent, and that was largely in part to Ari's clear voice, calm demeanor and genuine happiness to see the bride and groom married. I highly recommend Ari for any type of ceremony, as she has great options and ideas and can clearly meet individual needs. Thanks, Ari!!!

Rev. Ari Gray did a great job.

She provides extensive materials to let you build your own wedding. You can choose a set option or mix and match as much as you like. You can even brig in your own materials. She also really prepares you at the rehearsal.

She did a fantastic job during the ceremony and since she was so detailed in the rehearsal, we knew exactly what to do and when. She is a great speaker and really infused the ceremony with meaning. It was so much better than the civil ceremony we would have gotten from a Justice of the Peace.

We're not religious and Ari was a great option for a meaningful ceremony without religion. I don't even think my religious family noticed there was no mention of God. All they said was how beautiful the ceremony was and how touching it was. Of course, there are also plenty of options with more religious ceremonies if that's what you want.

We highly recommend her!

Ari was so much fun to work with. She was so flexible with us, conferencing via Skype while we were living in Hawaii. She has SO MANY great ceremony plans and suggestions! My wife and I spent half a day combing through her very organized options to pick and choose what was best for us. She was so helpful in making it a very special and intimate ceremony. She knows a LOT about weddings and rituals! She is eager to help you fit in whatever you want into your ceremony! We were grateful for all her knowledge about Hawaiian customs, and we loved the lei exchange she included in our ceremony. I’ve had so many people tell me that it was the most special ceremony they had ever been to. We highly, highly recommend her!

We decided to get married in a matter of days. We already had the marriage licence and in just 2 days Rev. Khrysmsun Parker helped us put together a great small ceremony. The wedding was held just before our Thanksgiving meal and was a big surprise to all of our friends (the kids knew before hand). The ceremony performed was word perfect and it felt tailored to our feelings. Rev. Parker had sent us 3 samples and we crafted one to our needs. Rev. Parker is charming and was the perfect wedding officiant. We recommend her highly.

Me & my husband decided to elope, due to unforeseen circumstances. We needed an officiant asap and we found Alternative Wedding Services. Rev. Khrymsun was our officiant. She's had no problem with the fact that I am an atheist and my husband is agnostic.
She's sweet, funny, organized, punctual, made us feel at easy and took care of all the details. We did a civil/hand-fasting ceremony and it was just lovely.
Next year on our one-year anniversary, we are having a vow renewal ceremony & reception for family & friends. Rev. Khrymsun will officiate for us again!
