On the day of your wedding, he will work with your other wedding professionals to ensure that every thing flows as seamlessly as possible. Personalizing your ceremony: Once you have chosen Reverend Joplin to be your officiant, he will schedule an interview with you. There must be a fit between all three of you. After your initial interview, if you choose to work with him, you will be involved in a couple of additional meetings, some details of which can be handled via e-mail, phone and fax. In those meetings Reverend Joplin will come to know you well, all the while building the bonds of trust and confidence that make your minister-couple relationship strong. He asks questions that pertain to every area of your life, strengthening your awareness of your relationship and helping to create personal vows. Reverend Joplin provides an array of information, formats, sample vows, ring vows, ideas, readings, poetry, etc. Which support what you envision for your special day. He encourages you to write your own vows, assists you in that process when necessary, asks you to bring into your ceremony any readings, symbols, etc. That are unique to you especially, never before seen ideas. From beginning to end, Reverend Joplin creates and designs with you, your own personal, custom ceremony, whether it is 20 minutes long, or 45 minutes long. Reverend Joplin takes all the time necessary to accomplish your mutual goals, so you will never feel hurried in your consultations with him. Premarital counseling: For those who are interested, Reverend Joplin offers the option of premarital counseling. Many couples choose counseling to prepare themselves for the long distance, the multiple challenges, and countless experiences they will have on the road of life together. Premarital counseling, testimonials from wedding couples: "Since our wedding, we have gotten a continuous stream of high compliments about our ceremony and our vows. Over and over, we hear "that is the best ceremony I've ever seen", "it was so you", "you guys looked like you were having such a great time", "best vows ever". No doubt this is due in full to our officiant Rev. Alan Joplin. Our meetings with him were warm, informative, and thorough and inspired us to take the time to make our wedding exactly what we wanted. His skills as an interviewer, writer and his genuine curiosity about the details of our relationship allowed him to create a unique ceremony that he then collaborated with us on to edit and tweak to our liking. On the day of the wedding, him calm demeanor was welcome & he brought a relaxed but important energy to the room during the ceremony." - Melanie and Damon "Alan was the perfect person to marry my husband and I. We thought for awhile about having a family member or friend marry us but didn't have anyone in our lives that seemed right. Alan became that friend we were looking for. He learned all about who we are as a couple and as people in order to created the most personal, moving and special ceremony we could have every imagined." - Amanda and Luke "We are so thankful that we found someone as wonderful as Alan to marry us. Alan is professionalism, attention to detail and passion are second to none. He truly took the time to get to know us as a couple and captured the essence of our love in the ceremony." - Adam and Erin "Alan has a great process that helped bob and I create a unique and personalized ceremony that expressed our commitment, love, values, hopes and dreams beautifully. He energized our ceremony with his creativity and ideas while being completely sensitive to our vision " - Jari and Rob "You certainly deserve the accolades you are getting! We had such a great time and we are still riding the wave of love orchestrated by our wedding made so special by you." - Robyn and Warren "We would like to thank you for a great ceremony. Also, I personally appreciate how you were trying to make me calm down during the ceremony and after the ceremony. You were a great support. All my guests and family loved the ceremony, and especially loved you. I hope we will see you again for the 10th year anniversary." - Gulsah and Selcuk "Your ceremony was the best i have attended, or have been party to.
