    Best day ever

    Lynnea was absolutely the best choice. She was very organized, took time to know both of us, created a ceremony that was specialized and intimate. All our guests said it was the best wedding they had ever attended. Grateful we choose Lynnea.

    Yipeeee!!! What a deep treasure it was to walk you both across the threshold. Thank you for your gracious words. My highest blessings for you both always, Lynnea

    The Wedding Ceremony of our Dreams!

    Rev. Lynnea was the best possible officiant we could've hoped for. We found her by accident online while doing research one day. She is warm, funny, dedicated, and very attuned to her clients. We connected with her early on in our planning process, and she was quick to get back to us always, and very helpful in answering all of our questions.

    Over the course of many months, we met via Zoom many times, and Lynnea really spent time getting to know us. Based on a template she provided us with, we created our dream ceremony outline collaboratively. My husband and I had so many special requests and ideas and she accommodated every single one.

    On the day of the wedding, Lynnea sat with me before the ceremony began, holding my hand and speaking very kind words as my nerves were getting the best of me. She was a wonderful presence to have around during both the special and stressful moments!

    Our ceremony itself was magical. To this day, we still hear compliments from our guests about how great of a speaker and officiant Rev. Lynnea was on our big day. We managed to fit so much in the space of a 30-minute ceremony, and we even engaged with our guests during the ceremony! Neither my spouse or I have very defined spiritual practices, and we wanted to mix many pieces of our heritages, traditions, and cultures, and the final product was absolutely beautiful, heartwarming, and made most of our guests tear up. Specifically, many told us this was one of the most unique and beautiful ceremonies they had witnessed. This was all thanks to Lynnea's attentiveness and dedication to creating the spiritual space we wanted on our wedding day.

    For any of our future big life moments, Rev. Lynnea will remain the first person I think of. We are so grateful she was a part of this time of our lives.

    Fantastic Experience

    Rev Lynnea was such a fantastic choice. I don't like sounding cheesy, but she was the perfect fit for our ceremony. The first thing I told her was that we had "great vibes" from the first message she sent. She communicated quickly and laid out her general plan from how things traditionally work but made sure to include OR remove anything we didn't want in our ceremony. Afterall, this was for my wife and I; Lynnea understands that most of all and caters to the moment. Because cookie cutter wasn't what we wanted, she helped us create what we had envisioned for us. She does provide a lot from her experience and can make sure you have every moment you want; she was open to everything.

    If you want someone that is willing to listen to you and help guide you with a fun, jovial manner, Lynnea is definitely the officiant to choose. She made everything easy and fun. Our photographer even mentioned how great she was; she just gives a special feeling to all involved for the occasion.
