Alan and Cathy were very helpful with our wedding. Very professional, yet very personable, they both were very attentive to our needs and wishes. My wife and I both being in the military, it was difficult at times to try and plan our wedding. We wanted to keep it very simple and small with just immediate family and a few close friends. Luckily, Alan and Cathy were eager to help plan out our ceremony. They were flexible with dates, times, and locations as well as any changes to the ceremony itself. Overall, they helped make it a very special moment for my wife and I.

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

What a beautiful wedding - the setting was picture perfect. It was a pleasure to work with you both - loved the entrance and getaway on the boat, that was a nice touch. And for me, the remembrance portion of your ceremony - throwing a heart shaped stone in the lake - was truly touching. Much happiness in your lives together. Alan and Cathy Chianese

Alan and Cathy were fantastic. We wanted a nice, laid back ceremony and they obliged. We were able to add in our own readings and throw some humor into the readings as well. Alan was on point with his timing and helped put everyone at ease. We had all the guests laughing for the majority of the ceremony which was our goal.

Thank you both!

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.
