Alan and Cathy were absolutely wonderful! When we first met, we instantly felt comfortable with them because they were easy to talk to, genuine, and clearly very passionate about what they do! They were happy to answer any questions that we had and were there for us every step of the way. Our wedding ceremony was everything we could have ever dreamed for.... They gave us an extremely helpful book where we could read/select different readings and passages. We loved this because it gave us a structure of how a wedding ceremony usually runs, but then also allowed us to build in elements that were special and unique to us. They were always open to the different ideas that we had (i.e. tree planting ceremony and a remembrance ceremony) and Alan beautifully brought them to life on our special day <3 S Thank you for everything Alan and Cathy! We will forever be grateful for the amazing ceremony that you gave us! Wishing you both the very best. Ashley & Dave

Alan and Cathy were a fantastic team. I picked them over other officiants I met because I felt that they were very genuine. They have a booklet full of different readings you can pick from, which may seem a little formulaic in the beginning, but really helps you organize the ceremony well. And of course you can edit and add your own however you want. I had a fantastic ceremony that everyone loved thanks to Alan!

My husband and I found Alan and Cathy on wedding wire based on their exceptional reviews. We had high standards in mind and they exceeded them all. They were both not only extremely professional but both such kind people with one goal in mind- to make sure our ceremony was what we dreamed of. They helped us to customize a ceremony that fit our personalities. We emailed back and forth several times to make sure it was accurate and to the quality that we wanted. We have had, and continue to hear from family and friends, what a beautiful ceremony it was. We were so lucky to have found them! I would recommend them to anyone, and will continue to refer them in the future. Thank you Alan and Cathy for everything!!! xoxo Chris and Nicole <3

We couldn't be happier with our decision to hire Alan and Cathy. Everything went perfectly and it was just how we pictured it! They were two of the kindest people we could ever work with. They are very organized and easy to work with.

We were married the day after Christmas. It was a very small celebration in the living room of our home with just immediate family in attendance. Alan made the ceremony so much more then had ever expected. Everyone commented multiple times what a beautiful ceremony he did for us. There was so much love in that room that night. We felt so blessed!! Alan and Cathy made it so special for us.

We had Alan officiant our wedding at the Providence Public library this past November. Alan helped make the ceremony so special and unique! The time and attention taken to the small details didn't go unnoticed. Our friends and family came up to us after to comment on how much they loved the personal touches during the ceremony. Thanks for helping to make it a ceremony our guests will never forget!

Our wedding Ceremony was unforgettable. It was hands down our favorite part of our wedding day and it wouldn’t have been possible without the guidance of Alan & Cathy. They really guided us in the perfect direction and helped us plan a ceremony that was truly a reflection of us, our family and our love. We would have been lost in planning a ceremony without them!

Cathy played such a key role in the communication process - she was timely in all of her emails and extremely helpful, offering professional and heart felt advice and suggestions. Alan - we will never forget how perfect you made our ceremony for us that day. We felt so connected with you and we were truly moved by the way you performed our marriage ceremony. Alan has a wonderful way of making you feel calm while you’re up there! There are a lot of nerves between a bride & groom and i remember every time I looked at Alan, he had a calming spirit and a joyful smile, reassuring me of how perfect that moment was.

Our experience with Soulmate elaboration was seamless and absolutely amazing. Hands down, they are the best. You would be lucky to have their special touch in the most important part of your day, your ceremony! I will be calling you guys for a vow renewal in the future! :) Thank you always and forever!

We knew we wanted to put together our own ceremony, but weren't sure where to start. Enter: Soulmate Celebrations! Alan and Cathy have a ton of experience and offer a great workbook to help couples assemble personalized ceremonies. We had some changes to the wording of our readings and other text and Alan nailed them all. They are true professionals.

My husband and I absolutely loved Alan and Cathy! You can not go wrong with this husband and wife team! They were amazing from start to finish! I had written my own ceremony and parts where I felt I needed a different reading they were always extremely helpful with ideas for replacements. Cathy was always so quick to respond to all of my e-mails and any questions that I had up until the wedding day. Alan spoke beautifully at our outside ceremony!! Because our ceremony was outside and by the ocean, the wind was going to be an issue with a microphone. Alan spoke with no microphone in front of 150 people and everyone said they heard the entire ceremony clearly! My husband and I got so many compliments on the officiant we had chosen! We were so happy with Alan and Cathy and we recommend them to any one who is looking for an officiant for their wedding. Thank you Alan and Cathy for making our wedding day perfect!

I looked at many top officiants in the Newport, RI area before choosing Soulmate Celebrations. They provided the right amount of customization, within an easy to work wedding template. It was so beneficial to have all materials in one place when choosing our perfect ceremony. All correspondence leading up to the event was timely and professional, and the day of couldn't have went more smoothly. Alan had great presence, was loud, articulate, and personable. I received many compliments following our wedding.

Thank you so much to Alan and Cathy for officiating our day. The ceremony went off without a hitch and everyone loved the vows. Thank you for providing an enormous assortment of passages, quotes, stories and poems for us to chose from. I thought the whole process was going to be a lot more difficult but your streamline way for figuring out what really is important to us and that we can even customize when needed, really put us at ease. Don't mean to pat ourselves on the back but, what a great choice having you and Cathy there!!! Thank you so very much. Love Jeff & Liz

My husband and I have traditional values but did not want a traditional church wedding. We had just about given up on the vision of a perfect day until we met Alan and Cathy. As soon as we met them we wanted to know where to sign, with all their creativity, uniqueness and professionalism we weren't about to let them go! They made our stress vanish! Working with them and choosing our personalized ceremony was a breeze, they had made everything so simple and organized. We truly believed that if we put our ceremony in there hands not only would we trust that they would get the job done but also they would create a masterpiece, and that is just what they did. Our wedding was perfect, and I am not the only one saying this. We have gotten so many compliments and inquires on Alan and Cathy. They went so far above and beyond what we ever expected. We were so so so happy with them! I have and will continue to recommend Soulmate Celebration Wedding Ceremonies to everyone I meet!!

We were looking for a very small ceremony and wanted it to be intimate and private. Alan and Cathy took the time to get to know myself and my husband and create a beautiful ceremony that was perfect for what we were looking for! Alan had perfect readings that really matched our relationship and he involved our children which was so special to us. We were able to communicate via email in the weeks before the ceremony to go over some of the loose ends which was perfect because of our busy schedules. There was no detail that was overlooked and every aspect of it was perfect :-) We laughed...we cried...and we said "I do"

Alan and Cathy are so wonderful! They are great people and made the process of creating a really personalized ceremony so easy and fun! I never gave much thought to how my ceremony was going to come together before we met Alan and Cathy but after having met them both and using their easy formula we came up with something so special that fit the two of so so perfectly!!! They had great ideas for our ceremony that made it unique as well. We LOVED LOVED LOVED our ceremony!!! Alan has such great presence and his presentation of our ceremny was flawless. HIs personality really shined through and made it all that much better!!! I am so thrilled we were able to work with both Alan and Cathy. My wedding would not have been the same without them!!!

Alan and Cathy were absolutely wonderful to work with. The ceremony was the part of our wedding I was the most nervous about planning. My husband and I are both spiritual people but without any conventional religious affiliation. Cathy answered all of my questions in a very quick, efficient manner. I always trusted any opinions that she had because she is just that good at what she does. Alan performed the ceremony beautifully. Our guests laughed, they cried and most importantly is was exactly what Mike and I wanted. We were a little wild at the rehearsal but Cathy and Alan accommodated a change of ceremony location, our dog Lois being part of the ceremony and groomsmen who have a VERY hard time behaving in serious situations haha. Thank you for being flexible. The whole process was really fun for Mike and I.

We are so appreciative to have had Alan has our officiant. For starters, his wife, Cathy was incredibly organized and I could tell immediately that she took great care in attention to detail. As a bride with a million other things on my plate, this helped keep me sane. They were always prompt and timely and made the process as easy and as special as possible. They really took into consideration what we wanted our ceremony to be like so that it was special and unique. Alan is also a great speaker and kept things controlled and organized on the day of the wedding. We're so grateful and thankful for everything they did for us and would highly recommend them to other couples.

Planning for a wedding can be stressful. Alan was very easy to work with and accommodating to our scheduling... It's hard to know what type of ceremony you would like if you don't know what options are available. Alan and his wife asked a lot of great questions to truly help us create a memorable experience for us and our guests!

I can't say enough wonderful things about Alan & Cathy. It was a pleasure to work with them both from the planning stages to the day of our wedding. Our ceremony was absolutely beautiful and we have heard nothing but great things about the ceremony - the meaningfulness, the length, etc. Everyone wanted to know who Alan was and how we found him! It was great to be able to pick from the readings that were supplied to us to make the perfect ceremony for us. Cathy was very responsive and helpful getting everything together for us and it gave me peace of mind knowing that she was there on the day of making sure everything ran smoothly with the processional and the musicians and even the set up of the space. I would not hesitate to recommend their services to anyone looking to have a unique and very special wedding ceremony.

We received many compliments about how beautiful our ceremony was. Thank you Alan and Cathy!

We can't say enough great things about Alan and Cathy. We felt immediately comfortable with them; they are both very down to earth and Cathy is an organizing machine! They have a great selection of pre-written ceremony sections to choose from to make your own personalized ceremony and allow for you to write your own parts too, if you wish. We found the process super easy and surprisingly cathartic. Our ceremony could not have been more elegant and "perfectly us". Cathy was also a great help coordinating everyone at the church, since we didn't have a DOC. We couldn't be happier with our choice to have Alan marry us. Highly recommended!

Alan and Cathy Chianese made our wedding what it was...beyond wonderful!! From the initial meeting, to our big day (and everything in between) they were fabulous. Alan, has such an engaging personality, which all of my guests commented on. So many people asked me how long we had been friends or how long we had known each other. That is the truest compliment to his service. He made our ceremony such a personal and intimate experience. And Cathy is the most calm and easygoing person I've met in a while. She kept my head above water before the big walk and I can not thank her enough for that. What a team! I would without a doubt recommend them to anyone for a wedding! It really was such a great experience and now memory. Thank you both!!

Alan and Cathy were excellent from when we first met with them in December, 2011, until after our ceremony was over. Their wedding packet contains different choices and options for the ceremony which was wonderful for a couple like us who did not want to stick with the traditional wedding, however, they did have that option as well. Their attention to detail was outstanding, and their flexibility for where and when to meet prior to the wedding was great.

The ceremony was nothing short of fantastic. Everything went smoothly and everyone was happy. After the ceremony was over, many of our guests approached us and said that they had never seen a better orchestrated ceremony, and went on and on about how great Alan did.

If you are looking for a personal wedding ceremony with the option to add in non-traditional ideas, Alan and Cathy are definitely the way to go. We would definitely recommend them!!

Alan & Cathy are truly wonderful people and we certainly would recommend them if your looking for a personal & beautiful ceremony!! :O)

My husband and I got married last weekend at Quidnessett Country Club. I just wanted to write to say what a FANTASTIC job soulmate celebration did. They were flexible and quick to respond to any of our questions and concerns. I loved how it was a team effort. Cathy and Alan met with us a few month before our wedding and provided us with a wonderful framework in planning our personalized ceremony. They gave us a lengthy book which had suggested reading/vows, etc. and allowed us to pick our own.

Cathy was able to attended our rehersal even though it was early in the day. She helped us get organized and worked cooperatively with the vendor. Alan was the minister at our wedding, and pulled everything off flawlessly.

We recieved so many compliments on what a wonderful job both Alan and Cathy did. Kudos to you both, we couldn't thank you enough.

Without reservations, I would HIGHLY reccommend soulmate celebrations for your wedding.

Alan and Cathy work as a team which makes the experience of working with them all the better. Alan and Cathy were quick to respond with any questions we had and were always available to help. The "menu" of ceremony services they offer really made planning our ceremony stress-free and fun! It was great to use their selections as a guide but to also have the flexibility of adding what we liked to the ceremony. Alan delivered our ceremony in a professional and caring manner. They were also super helpful in accomodating our ring-bearer who has Autism. Thank you Alan and Cathy!!!

My husband and I were thrilled with Alan and Cathy!! We had a very short engagement (2 weeks!) and Alan and Cathy were so accommodating! They created a beautiful ceremony that was exactly what we were looking for! Alan performed the ceremony in a personal and professional manner and made us both feel special. Thank you both so much for providing such a beautiful and memorable ceremony.

My sister recommended Soulmate celebrations to me. We could not have been happier. I am a very private and shy person. Alan put some sample ceremonies together for me that made me feel very comfortable on my special day. There wasnt a dry eye to be seen.

This was a second wedding for the two of us. We still wanted a traditional ceremony. Alan worked with our ideas and put a beautiful ceremony together. The day was perfect. Sometimes you hear horror stories when people are selected from the phone book sight unseen. Soulmate was recommended through a friend. Alan was professionally dressed, spoke sincerely about us and the guests were so impressed with the words that were chosen. I would highly recommend Soulmate Celebrations.

Our wedding day was a beautifully choreographed ceremony and we owe it all to Alan and Cathy. Together they helped us create a unique ceremony that was a reflection of our personalities - basically we wanted a formal ceremony in an outdoor setting. During the rehearsal, Cathy asked us how we envisioned our entrances and how we wanted our attendants to enter, from that point on it was in her hands because she was the professional! She took charge immediately getting everyone in place...they all understood what they needed to do and where they needed to go. Cathy and Alan made everyone feel comfortable and each of them had a remedy to help take away any butterflies. And they also didn't mind running through the rehearsal twice so that we would be prepared for the big day. Because we were going to be outside, we had a rain contingency 'just in case', thankfully we didn't have to go through with that plan. On the day of our wedding we were impressed with Alan's delivery of the ceremony...he strives for perfection. He was so professional and truly engaging - there wasn't a dry eye at that ceremony. Thank you Alan and Cathy for creating a wonderful memory of the most important day of our lives! Two words describes them both - outstanding professionals!

Alan and his wife Cathy were very good at what they did, I was happy with the ceremony. My only confusing was on how to send the ceremony selection we had, my husband didn't know if we should photo copy it, or just give the numbers of our selection, and I tried to e-mail the question once and the response said to just send it to his wife, which didn't answer our question. And I also had tried a we months before to e-mail them about our rehearsal and never heard anything so when I asked my question I mentioned it and I was told it was noted, which was a relief.

We met with Alan and Cathy about 8 months before our wedding, they gave us a booklet with any and all information we could possibly need to plan our ceremony. I touched base with them maybe twice before the wedding and even though we didn't have a rehearsal ( we were a destination wedding) the ceremony was absolutely beautiful. Alan did s fantastic job and I would recommend him to anyone looking to personalize their ceremony.

Alan and Cathy are a great team. It was a benefit having an officiating couple since while Alan was doing the readings, Cathy was able to cue the processional and coordinate other logistics. From the moment we met them we were sold. From their kind smiles, professionalism and open-mindedness we could tell they would be a great addition to the kind of event we had in mind. Our ceremony had some traditional elements but also incorporated our own personalities. It was performed on a beach, with some humor added to the readings upon our request, and ended with a group hug. Alan and Cathy helped me (the bride) pull off a surprise song I wrote for the groom by hiding and bringing me a guitar in the middle of the ceremony. It was done without rehearsal and came off even more smoothly than I had imagined! Before the event, they helped me to research sound amplification options even though that was a little outside their usual service. They arrived at the ceremony site early, dressed very tastefully. Alan performed the readings with a clear voice and with well-executed intonation. Everything felt right, and I am so happy we chose them to officiate our wedding. I give them a strong recommendation!

Alan performed the ceremony with personality and charm while Cathy made sure that the trains ran on time, so to speak. They're a great team and we'd recommend them without hesitation to anyone getting married!

Alan and Cathy are truly fantastic. From the moment we met them we knew they were the right fit for our wedding. They provide you with a bunch of information to help you personalize your wedding. Alan and Cathy are very quick with their responses. Emails were returned within 24 hours. Which was nice as some vendors took weeks and multiple emails to respond. They worked with our schedule and the sites for the walkthrough which had to take place early Friday morning.

After our wedding many of our guests commented that they loved the ceremony.

Highly recommended!!!!!.

My husband and I were looking for an officiant who was willing and happy to perform a somewhat non-traditional wedding ceremony. We wanted something short and sweet, and not focused on any specific religion in particular, and we found that in Alan.

He was responsive whenever I emailed him throughout the year, and allowed us to choose all the readings for the ceremony, and there were no suprises on our wedding day. However, Alan didn't show up to the rehearsal and it was somewhat of a disaster. His wife came instead, and did not direct us what so ever as to walking down the aisle, who goes first, etc. It was completely unprofessional and I was embarrased as I required everyone in the wedding party to be there. I was never told ahead of time that Alan wouldn't be able to make it, although after looking at his website it appears our rehearsal wasn't even on his schedule. I had to take the matter into my own hands and order people what to do, and I did not feel comfortable doing that, but someone had to! The day of was fine, thanks to the catering manager...but I felt that the whole lining up and walking down the aisle was very choatic and unorganized.
