“Alan gave me the gift of allowing me to be completely present during our reception”
First off, we had a blast and Alan contributed to it.
We wanted our wedding to be fun but honestly had no idea about the details. After our first meeting with Alan it was clear how thoughtful and committed he was in helping us create an event that mirrored us not him.
He’s not flashy or over the top, he’s genuine and with the subtly art of adjusting his energy level to match yours. We definitely felt it during the wedding and reception. When we were high, the music was pumping, which quite honestly was most of the night, and when things needed to slow down he eased into it without it being awkward.
We did have a little hiccup with our recessional music, but it added to the intimacy of the event along with giving some of our late guest a chance to say they witnessed our ceremony (at least a part of it).
I’m a planner and could easily of been caught up in the details during the event, but Alan gave me the gift of allowing me to be completely present during our reception because he was managing our pre-arranged goals. After a few items got ticked off without me needing to prompt it, i knew I could relax.
During the planning process he was excellent with guiding us through the “details” as well as being open to challenging his own comfort level after we decided to have an east coast style reception, with dancing in between courses. 🙂
