Alan Katz was definitely a really cool guy and absolutely hilarious! The only down side was the price...extremely high for an hour of work. I suppose if I had utelized the phone consultations or other services offered in that price package, it would have been a little easier to swallow. Truth be told, I really didn't need to ask questions or use him for anything except the ceremony. Believe me, I am in no way complaining about the service...he is worth it! If you are not on a tighter budget, I would recommend him though, simply for the fact that he entertained our guests during the ceremony, and made the ceremony a great, light-hearted affair. I had people ask me after the wedding, if he was a comedian...apparently so! He was extremely easy to get a hold of, get along with, on time, and very professional in every way, I just wish he could lower his price a bit...I have one more daughter to get through! He arrived at about 4:30, the ceremony started at 5:00pm and the ceremony was over at about 5:25pm.

Alan Katz was definitely the best officiant Ive ever seen. I am so glad I chose him as my officiant. Ive been to so many weddings where the ceremony was so monotonous and boring. Not with Alan, he made the ceremony unique and funny. Everyone was laughing. He was very entertaining and knows how to please the crowd. On the day of - he came VERY early so he can coordinate with the on-site coordinator and other venues. He came to see me in my bridal room to calm my nerves down and reassure that everything was going to be ok. If you are looking for an organized, very entertaining, UN-boring officiant- stop looking and save yourself some stress. thanks alan Jeremy and Nicole May 23'09

We had David Daniels as our officiant and he was great. He has a very calming demeanor which made me very comfortable that him marrying us. Since we didnt belong to a church it was important for me to have someone that made me feel comfortable and wouldnt push any beliefs on me. He gives suggestions on ceremony structure but ultimately will do your ceremony exactly how you want it. I was very pleased. We created our own personalized ceremony and he performed it exactly. He did forget one small poem in which I reminded him of but he still did a good job.

It really was the most amazingly beautiful ceremony, and I cant possibly imagine it getting any better than that. You truly made that day special for us, and it was undoubtedly the happiest day of our lives. I will never forget it, and I will never forget you. Im so glad we found you. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Linda and Mike Lana and I want to thank you for a flawless job at our wedding. You were very professional, entertaining, well-spoken, and all the other things an Officiant should be. A number of guests approached me and paid you compliments. One guy thought you were a close friend or family member, because you seemed so comfortable and at-ease. Steve & Lana We just wanted to thank you for all you did for us on our wedding day. Your performance was phenomenal! Our guests couldn't believe that we met you only an hour before the ceremony because you made us so comfortable. When the rings got left in the limo, you were "johnny on the spot" trying to get them back. Our ceremony wouldn't have been as memorable or hysterically funny without you. From the second you stepped up at the mic you got the party started and had the crowd eating our of the palms of your hands! Let's just say that the compliments are still coming in to this very day, which you truly deserve! There just aren't enough words say to thank you because you were so wonderful to us from day one but here we go. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! Having you perform the ceremony was an honor for us cause you didn't treat us like clients you treated us like family. Kimya & Jamie Thank you so much for your performance at our wedding. Although I did not get to physically meet you until the day of the wedding you still knew exactly what to say and how to make our wedding fun. I loved how you said if anyone opposes us getting married, the exit is right there. That was awesome. My best friends mother is very Christian and she told me that she has been to many weddings that were in churches and all serious. She said she had never been to one that was so relaxed and so much fun and she loved the ceremony. Thank you so much for what you did for us. It was just so great. We will recommend you to everyone we know. Cody and Alayna Thank you again for a very special ceremony on Sunday. I have received so many complements on the humor you interjected into the ceremony and the close interaction you had with Darlinn and me. Everyone said it was very unique and fit the both of us very well. I don't know how you did it based on the short time you spent with us! Sid and Darlinn Hey we just want to say that you really made the ceremony great. My family really liked you and the ceremony that you performed. They could tell that you really have a calling for this, because it was so easy for you. We just really appreciate you and we are really happy with how it all turned out. Thank you so much for being a part of our special day! And if I know anyone who may be getting married I definitely know where to send them. Sara and Edison Nathan and I just returned from a great honeymoon in Hawaii. I wanted to thank you so much, for performing the wedding of our dreams, without your sense of humor; our wedding wouldn't have been the same. Nathan and Lauren I just wanted to take a moment to let you know that we have received numerous compliments from our guests about you. Everyone was remarking how wonderful the ceremony was, and how fantastic you were. Many people have stated that it was quite simply the best wedding they have been to. People have commented how lovely your words were, and how amazing it was that you added in the comedy relief at just the right times. If it wasnt for you, I dont think I would have been able to make it through without losing it! Kimberly and Nolan Now that all the madness has subsided I just wanted to offer my appreciation for the phenomenal job you did for us on our special day. It was all that we could have asked for and so much more. I thought my nerves were going to get the best of me but your approach and humor helped me arrive to a state of complete relaxation and happiness. We were able to focus on the true meaning of the occasion and your words made the union all the more real. We thank you so much for making our day so special. I will recommend you to everyone I know and don't know!! Amanda and Adam We would like to thank you for officiating our wedding... it was such a delight to have you during our special celebration! We wouldn't want to have it any other way! You made us feel relaxed and prepared for the ceremony. It was a fun party, yet undeniably full of love and happiness. We can't thank you enough. Rick and Mia Oh my gosh you were great...thank you thank you thank you....and a thank you for all the little extras! You were truly amazing...I couldnt have dreamed of anything better...ok maybe the sun not in my eyes!! ha ha :-) And yes thank you for handling the license for me. Oh and yes did I say THANK YOU!!!!!! Christina and Ken We wanted to Thank You SOOO much for performing at our ceremony!

I could not have asked for more. Alan's professionalism and humor were unparalleled. He went above and beyond to make our special day as perfect as it could have been. First of all he had all of the legalities already taken care of for us and made that whole aspect of it simple and worry free. The ceremony was also more than i could have asked for. Alan truly speaks from the heart. Highly recommended hands down.

Our ceremony is still being talked about in glowing terms! I like to think it is partially due to my new husband and myself, but Alan Katz our officiant (and owner of So Call Officiant) deserves most of the credit. We had no problem setting an in-person appointment with him at his office in Long Beach and immediately we felt like he was an old friend. He also took care of the marriage license, so all we had to do was sign on the dotted line. His personality and style may not be for everyone, but if you are looking for someone who is a genuine nice person, loves what he does and is funny enough to be on SNL, then this is your officiant. He made everything so easy and relaxed that my husband and I were able to add our on adlibs during the ceremony. During the reception our guests made a point of telling us that it was one of the best ceremonies they had ever seen; loving, but fun like us!
