    Wonderful Wedding Ceremony

    We met Lynda at an open house wedding event this summer. Lynda is an absolute pleasure to work with. We knew she was the officiant for us after meeting her for only a few minutes. She has a beautiful spirit that makes you feel at ease immediately. She answered all of our questions about various types of ceremonies and was very professional and attentive throughout the process. Thank you Lynda for performing a wonderful wedding ceremony. We were honored to have you as part of our special day.
    Lynda officiated our ceremony with passion and meaning. Friends and family members are still telling us how much they enjoyed our wedding ceremony. Lynda, you have an excellent way with words and with people.
    We are ever so grateful to you for officiating our wedding last month!

    God Bless You Always,
    Rocco & Ann Smith

    Ann & Rocco,
    After reading your words--I have to tell you that my fingers are frozen on my keyboard! I'm touched beyond articulation for what I'm feeling. The night I met you at the open house, I also felt a tingle of connection with you, pretty much instantly. I recall Rocco asking me to describe my version of the "Wine Ceremony". He was so focused and intent on my words, he really listened. Our dialogue flowed so easily, right? I love how the two of you pulled me into "your world" right away. Spending time with you, designing your ceremony together, and officiating on your big day are gifts I will always treasure. Thank you for taking the time to compose this testimonial on my behalf--it means the world! I pray we can stay in touch--you guys will love my Brian! Best wishes and many fun years together! Love & Gratitude, xo "LD"

    Stephen & Vicky,
    When I was called to this profession, I knew the words from me would not entirely be my own. I suppose that's was "a calling" really means. You folks ended up on my front porch validates my belief in The Law of Attraction. I just didn't know at the time that my gift would be in the form of a "Stephen & Vicky" like you! Thank you so much for letting me know your thoughts about my services and for helping others with their search. I loved being your officiant, and I loved your families and your really groovy friends! We'll see you soon. Get better sweet Vicky! With Love & Gratitude, "LD" xo
