Fr. Alex, Thank you so much for officiating our wedding yesterday! We certainly thought the ceremony was amazing! It was beautiful and we loved how it was the perfect mixture of solemnity with warmth and lightheartedness. We also appreciated your reflective words on the nature of love. The occasion truly felt blessed.
Many guests complimented us on the wedding ceremony. My (Adam’s) parents loved it and my father was telling me how he was so impressed that he sought you out afterwards to tell you. My parents are practicing Roman Catholics, so having you officiate, with your authority as an Old Catholic Priest, I’m sure was a comfort for them.
Tracy’s father read your blessing at the start of our reception. It was a lovely way to begin the next stage of the day. The reception and dinner were fantastic. Everyone seemed to really enjoy themselves. With all the stress and uncertainty surrounding the planning, it was just so wonderful for us to see everything come together so well.
Again, thank you so much for guiding us towards such a beautiful and meaningful ceremony.

Dear Father Alex, Alex and I wanted to thank you again from the bottom of hearts for co-officiating our wedding with Rabbi Winer. From our first meeting, we were struck by your warmth, kindness, and compassion. You thoughtfully navigated the challenges of an interfaith wedding, and co-created a ceremony that beautifully weaved together the Greek Orthodox and Jewish traditions. Many friends and family members told us that it was one of the most beautiful and touching ceremonies they had attended, and one that truly honored and respected both religions. Thank you so much for the time and effort you took to research and create the perfect ceremony, and for your love and support throughout the planning process. While it could have been a stressful and contentious situation, the reality could not have been further from that. Rather you thoughtfully provoked conversation that helped Alex and I create a shared vision for our wedding. We are so incredibly grateful to have found you, and would love to stay in touch in the years ahead! Με αγάπη, Vanessa & Alex June 2020
Father Alex, thank you so much for making our wedding so special. The ceremony was everything I as a bride wanted it to be. I am thankful for your help and support in planning this day we have been anticipating. I am glad that the date changes did not affect your ability to make it to Tupper Manor!
Thank you so much again! Kristen and Kevin 10/2021
Dear Father Alex,
Please let me just resonate and elevate all that has been said....there are no words for how special and absolutely perfect our ceremony was. I could not have imagined a more perfect way to share our love with our family and friends, include those most important to us in the day, and officially start our married life together. To say that we have loved working with you doesn't do this process justice. I am so grateful that we found each other--thanks Mandy! It gave us the opportunity to include our faith and spirituality in our wedding in the way most suited to us while also honoring our religious upbringing and those of our families. Thank you for all of the time that you put into thoughtfully crafting our ceremony after getting to know us, and for your boots on the ground day of!! The way in which everyone came together around us is incredible and a feeling not to be forgotten. Thank you so much and we truly hope to see you again. All the best, Olivia & Elliott 06/2022
