We hired Lynnea as the officiant for our wedding September 6, 2014. Lynnea was a dream to work with. After meeting with a number of officiants who we didn't really "click" with, Lynnea was referred to us and I so sent her an email. From our very first communications I could tell that Lynnea "got" me and would be able to create and deliver a thoughtful, meaningful and unique ceremony.Sent on 10/01/2014
We had certain criteria that was important to us- such as wanting a non-denominational ceremony that still incorporated elements of tradition from the Jewish heritage- and Lynnea nailed it, making it as genuine and non-cheesy as we hoped for. We skyped a few times to go over the ceremony and my husband and I both felt as if we were a huge part of creating this ceremony which was special.
Before the ceremony, Lynnea helped me to breathe, ground myself, and recite my vows clearly. As a result, I was able to deliver them calmly and with a smile on my face, and I am so grateful for that last-minute pep talk and advice!
Lynnea joined us for our reception and we had a GREAT time- memorably, we ended up signing the marriage license mid-party ON the dance floor in the middle of a song, and Lynnea was as relaxed and joyous as she could be, hugging us excitedly as we all danced together to celebrate.
If your ceremony matters to you, you should give Lynnea a call. She has a warm demeanor, a big heart, and a great sense of humor. As a speaker, she is eloquent, engaging and keeps the audience rapt. Thank you Lynnea! We will certainly keep in touch with you and hope to renew our vows one day with you! :)

Lynnea was wonderful to work with every step of the way. She helped us plan and create the ceremony in a professional and loving way. On the day of the wedding, she rocked the house and showed how great she is at addressing the crowd and connecting with us, the couple to be married. I recommend her services to anyone who wants to have a customized ceremony but does not know how to go about it. You can be confident that you will have a wonderful experience every step of the way with Lynnea to assist you.Sent on 07/23/2014
