    Alyson Joy helped create the most magical day of our lives!

    The most magical day of my life. Alyson was a Joy to work with (pun intended). She inspired us from the moment we spoke on the phone, and was a pleasure to meet over Zoom where she gave an amazing background on what vows represent and inspired me to write the most heartfelt vows. The process with Alyson from start to finish was seamless. Alyson made everything so easy and relaxing. Her presence brought calm and peace to our wedding day. I couldn't imagine not having Alyson at our wedding and I only wish she could have stayed longer haha! The sound ceremony with the singing bowls was absolutely beautiful. It allowed us to focus solely on each other at the beginning of the ceremony, and again as we signed the papers. If you select Alyson to marry you, you will not be disappointed! Thank you Alyson for the most amazing day of our lives!

    Alyson is awesome!

    Alyson was so helpful as we changed our wedding due to covid-19. We had many different dates and she made all of them work. She was prepared and set the tone for our ceremony. She was well liked by all of our guests and was incredibly easy to work with. I highly recommend!!

    Outstanding wedding officiant!

    We are so grateful to have Alyson as our wedding officiant! She is absolutely amazing and held a beautiful ceremony for us. You can really tell that Alyson cares about what she does -- she took the time to really get to know us as a couple and create exactly the type of ceremony we wanted. She was very happy to customize the ceremony in any way we wanted. Alyson has a wonderful, positive, calming, and serene aura that is absolutely perfect for a wedding ceremony! We really enjoyed working with her and getting to know her. We could not recommend her highly enough! Thank you Alyson for such a wonderful and memorable ceremony.

    Alyson Joy Ministry's reply:

    So Grateful!

    Alex and I are so grateful Alyson could officiate our wedding last weekend (October 12, 2019).

    The ceremony was by far my favourite part of the day for obvious reasons-but it would not have gone so smoothly and beautifully if it weren't for Alyson's efforts to meet us on multiple occasions, practice run-throughs, and her ability to keep us calm!

    Alyson made the time to talk to video chat, meet for tea, and meet at her home so she could get to know us better and help prepare us for the big day. Alyson was very patient and understanding as she helped me understand all the little pieces of a Western wedding. In the end, Alyson ensured we had a thoughtful ceremony which incorporated our personalities and diverse backgrounds.

    Thank you Alyson!

    Love,

    Shanzeh and Alex

    Alyson Joy Ministry's reply:

    Shanzeh & Alex,

    I am so happy for both of you and also grateful that you picked me to be a part of your special day. Every time the three of us met I felt the magic between both of you. :-) I especially felt it during your ceremony. Once again, congratulations and thank you for choosing me and for offering this kind message/review.
    Hugs!

    Amazing Experience!

    Alyson officiated my wedding this past weekend (Oct. 5) and she was amazing! From the very first conversation we had with her, we were certain she would be the right person for us. She is incredibly genuine and kind, and you can really tell that she loves and respects love and marriage. She allowed us to create our own ceremony from bits and pieces of other ceremonies she has done and let us personalize it so that it was true to us as a couple. She is very calming and super supportive! During the ceremony she did such a good job at keeping my husband and I calm and collected so neither of us was nervous up there in front of everyone. She really made it feel like it was just us there. I would definitely recommend her to any and everyone!

    Alyson Joy Ministry's reply:

    Thank you for this kind review. I really enjoyed working with both of you and your wedding was truly magical. Thank you for choosing me to officiate your ceremony. Big Hugs.

    So friendly and professional

    We booked Alyson a long time ago but had to delay things due to the pandemic. She was extremely flexible and warm in tailoring to our needs. She provided her services for a small civil ceremony and will be returning as our officiant at our actual wedding. Very professional and very sweet to work with. Would recommend to anyone.

    Backyard Wedding

    Alyson was our officiant for our intimate backyard wedding ceremony. She was very personable and down to earth. During our meetings, she took the time to really get to know us and learn about our relationship. She had thoughtful suggestions for our vows and helped guide us through the process of creating our ceremony. We got many compliments on how beautiful and moving the ceremony was. We also met with Alyson for the rehearsal and everyone told us how much they enjoyed meeting and speaking with her. Thank you Alyson for being apart of our special day and making our ceremony so memorable!
