Absolutely Amazing! 5 Stars!!
We were blown away by Miriam’s ceremony and so were our guests. The ultimate compliment being multiple people asking how, and for how long, we’ve known her. She took the time to get to know us as a couple, the intricacies of our relationship and different aspects of our wedding to provide a personal, genuine and engaging ceremony. We couldn’t be happier! Thank you Miriam!!Sent on 10/31/2019

A Truly Unique and Personalized Ceremony
Miriam went above and beyond her role as officiant for our wedding. She became a dear friend and mentor throughout the process.
The ceremony was everything we imagined and more. Miriam's words were eloquent, meaningful, and completely personalized to us as a couple. Many guests and family members came up to us after the ceremony asking if she was a family member, based on how well she seemed to know us. Her voice is calming and sincere, which kept us grounded and present during the ceremony.
Our premarital sessions with Miriam reminded us about what is most important during the wedding planning process. They brought us even closer as a couple, and so close to Miriam that it only felt natural to invite her to the rehearsal dinner and wedding, as our guest! We will always cherish our time with Miriam and highly recommend her services to any couple looking for a deeper, more meaningful ceremony. You are in for a real treat if you decide to work with Miriam!Sent on 08/30/2019

Thoughtful, experienced, and all around awesome!
In the months leading up to our wedding, Miriam quickly went from officiant to dear friend. From our first meeting, it was obvious that she puts so much thought and time into her ceremonies, which is exactly what we were looking for! Over a fun and relaxed process, we had several meetings to discuss our relationship, friends, family, and anything else significant in our lives. She would even invite our dog to meetings, and would be ready with an assortment of amazing treats for her! After thoroughly getting to know us (dog included), Miriam crafted the most beautiful and heartfelt ceremony that was more than we could have hoped for. Her words managed to be eloquent and deep, while still fitting the mass appeal of a wedding (we had around 150 guests). Also, Miriam has a calmness and professionalism that reflects her extensive experience in countless ceremonies. Throughout the craziness of the wedding weekend, we could always look to her for both directions and words of wisdom, which was such a blessing. It is hard to explain how grateful we are for Miriam, and could not imagine a more wonderful and perfect officiant for anyone's big day!Sent on 09/05/2019
One of the (in our opinion) world's leading wedding officiants. Clients get more than just someone to "marry" them "day-of". Miriam Lindbeck goes deeper and because of this, has satisfied clients from all over. We have worked with her for years and recommend her to all our clients.
Miriam is a joy to have officiate weddings. Her overall demeanor is happy and uplifting, supportive and yet calming. Miriam takes time to get know each and every client and the details from her time spent with them comes through in her ceremonies. They feel unique and special and my clients are always so grateful for the recommendation of Miriam and I am always so happy have her on our events.
A darling with incredible intuition who takes great care in officiating the wedding the way the client wants, we love her.
