Welcome to my website. I am Rev Alison Caiola, a second generation New York City Wedding Officiant.
Are you an engaged couple looking to get married in NYC as your destination wedding site? If so, I would like to extend a hearty welcome to you!
As an Ordained New York Minister I very often perform wedding ceremonies for couples from other states or countries. I can be contacted by email, phone and SKYPE and will help you make getting married away from home a smooth, easy and exciting experience. By communicating by email, phone or skype we do get to know each other, so that I can design a ceremony that will be perfect for you. I email ceremony options for you to pick and choose from. We work together until we have created the wedding ceremony of your dreams.
I will walk you through the steps needed to get your marriage license and even make suggestions as to the best venues in NYC to have your ceremony. I can also recommend photographers, hairdressers and florists. Whether you desire a quiet ceremony that includes you and a witness or hundreds of people, I will guide you in the right direction!
Contact me by email firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 1-631-786-9630 and we can plan your ceremony. I take great care in designing your ceremony and making your trip to NY and your wedding ceremony a lifetime memorable experience.
I am proud to be named #1 NYC Minister by International Destination Wedding Planners around the globe. I am also proud to be recommended often by travel advisory forums like:
Dear Rev Alison,
As you know, our wedding was a very last minute affair. I had the job of booking everything - I found you on the internet and just stopped searching--something in me knew you would be perfect. After calling you and having a great conversation all that I kept thinking was that you made it sounds so easy. That was everything I needed it to be --smooth with no bumps in the road and that is exactly what we got. You gave us choices of ceremony which were so beautiful and though my husband and I did not write our own vows the way you created them, felt like we did. The day was wonderful - we did not know where we would do the ceremony and it was you who called it!! It was the most beautiful experience I could have ever dreamed of. You were so flexible and open and now we have the most precious memories of our ceremony. Thank you Rev. for knowing what we wanted before we did.
Thanks-Adriana & Paul(UK)
Dear Rev Alison
We are back in Mallorca after having a fabulous time in your wonderful country. We would like to say an enormous thank you to you and your team for making our day so special. The make up artist Jessica that you recommended made me feel like a princess and is such a sweet and friendly girl. Joey the hairdresser you recommended did a fantastic job and made the whole experience just wonderful. You made the process so simple and stress free.
We also want to give you a big thank you for recommended Brian as our photographer and our witness. Once again a truly lovely and talented person. Many thanks, Rev ALison, the ceremony you created for us was beautiful and something we will treasure forever.

Dear Rev Alison, It had always been our dream to travel to NYC to get married. It is very difficult, however to plan a NY wedding all the way from the U.K. We were also worried that the clergy that we chose would not know us and the wedding would be cookie-cutter. Well we found you Rev Alison, and you turned our wedding dreams into a reality! Not only were you kind enough to help us locate the perfect place to get married, but we could’t believe how personal and warm the ceremony was. You captured our feelings for each other perfectly. For that we are ever so grateful.
Best Kevin & Rachel(UK)
Dear Rev Alison
Our wedding was so beautiful, you were so warm and friendly. You created a wedding ceremony that was beyond our hopes.

Dear Rev Alison
Our ceremony was so beautiful, the words that you wrote and said conveyed our feelings for each other. We never thought getting married so far from home would be this wonderful and heartwarming.
We thank you so much!

Dear Rev Alison
A few weeks has passed and myself and Kate are happily married. The trip to NYC was a once in a lifetime event for the pair of us and something that will never be forgotten. Everyone at home was shocked but pleased and it has all been a very surreal experience.
I wanted to say thanks for all of your support and without your guidance I would not have been able to surprise Kate in the way I did.
Thanks once again.
