Father Allen was great, he met with my husband and I to go over everything we wanted to incorporated in the ceremony, he was easy to contact and always eased our concerns. He made sure all details were covered days before the wedding and the ceremony was just amazing, he used his charming personality and all my guests love it. I still get great comments about the ceremony. Thank you again for making our day so special.
Thank you, it was a blessing and honor to serve you on your wonderful day!
Rev. Allen officiated our wedding in August 2014 on the beach behind DiamondHead Resort in Ft. Myers Beach, Fl. He did an excellent job in providing us information prior to the wedding and stayed in touch and followed up with us in a timely manner. Rev. Allen arrived to the wedding prior to the ceremony and made sure things were in order. He made us feel comfortable during the ceremony, and it was a beautiful service and day!!
The wedding ceremony with Rev. Lincoln was absolutely beautiful; warm, sweet, funny, moving... we both agreed that it was everything we could have wanted and more, and we wouldn't have done anything different. We got married on Ft. Myers Beach with just two friends and Rev. Lincoln. Our conversations over the phone and emails (we were coming from Colorado) made it very easy to tailor the ceremony to our tastes. He also offered to set up the photographer and florist, or to just give us suggestions. The photographer, Tom Shane, was very good at what he did, easy to work with, unobtrusive during the ceremony, and had a lot of fun ideas. Rev. Allen suggested Santini Floral, and they also did a fantastic job on short notice.
I think every day of some of the special words of advice Rev. Allen gave us. Thank you for the wonderful ceremony, you helped make that day very special!

Just a quick back story on our wedding: my wife and I live in Connecticut, but were determined to have a Florida wedding. With that came the need to plan the entire wedding almost entirely via emails, internet searches and phone calls. At every stage of the process from the initial contact all the way through the wrap up after the big day, Rev. Lincoln was there helping us along the way. He also has a great network of contacts where we were able to find a great DJ through him as well.
Beyond just helping us with the logistics of our big day, Rev. Lincoln made our ceremony the best part of our whole wedding. Beyond the cheers, laughs and joyful tears; the nuptials I shared with my wife were truly moving. We are very thankful that we picked Rev. Lincoln for our wedding and would recommend him in a heartbeat to anyone in the Ft. Myers/Naples area.
It is my honor to make your wedding real and really yours whether you live near or far. Thank you for the most excellent feedback!
Reverend Lincoln was very organized, professional, and caring. He made sure he presented our ceremony in a fashion that fit our personalities, beliefs, and requests. He even traveled from Fort Myers Beach to North Fort Myers for the rehearsal and ceremony. We were very pleased with him.
It was such a joy being with you and your family on your special day, and I'm so glad you got the country-chic wedding you were looking for! Thank you for the honor of being your wedding minister.
I highly recommend Rev. Lincoln for your ceremony. He did an excellent job at ours and I'm very glad we chose him.
I will never forget the words of wisdom for the journey he chose for my wife and I.
Thank you Paul. A minister couldn't ask for a bigger honor than to read something like that! Not that you said you LIKED what I said... hmm, maybe that's a little more cryptic than i like! The two of you are wonderful folk. Blessings to you all the days of your life.
Reverend Lincoln gave one of the best, funniest, and touching sermons at our wedding. He met with us twice before the wedding to get to know us and really personalized it for us. The guests were laughing, crying, and everything in between, except being bored. It was a very touching and memorable ceremony and we were very glad to have chosen Rev. Lincoln to officiate.
It was such an honor and a blast to do your service. The two of you are a wonderful couple. God's blessings to you.
It was such a relief to have found Rev. Lincoln! Planning an out-of-town wedding wasn't always easy, but he made the rehearsal/ceremony experience smooth and meaningful. His willingness to meet with us months beforehand to discuss our vision and relationship was an added bonus. I'd recommend RL to anyone looking for a great leader on their special day!
Thank you for your wonderful words. It was a beautiful day for a beautiful wedding in a beautiful place for two beautiful people.
Rev. Lincoln was great for our wedding! He was able to help us plan the service and gave us great suggestions on readings and format. He was also very accommodating to work with our short time frame to make our ceremony special.
It was a fun and wonderful wedding indeed! My continued prayer for God's richest blessings on your whole family.
Reverend Lincoln, wasn't keen on me calling him Rev, lol
He was fantastic, my daughter and son in law were so happy with him. He met with them and personalized the even. So touching. Dear, dear, man.
I wasn't?! "Rev" your engines, what can I say. (Sorry, it's officially bad pun day). I wish I knew who you were to say thank you. Glad you and they were blessed.
Rev. Lincoln was very thoughtful and responsive to all inquiries. He spent a great deal of time speaking with my fiance and I prior to the ceremony in order to make it a special event and personalized for us. I would recommend him for any future bride and groom.
Thank you so much for your very kind and encouraging words. It was an honor to be there for the two of you for a very special wedding.

Reverend Lincoln is truly a professional and does everything he can to insure you ceremony is perfect. We highly recommend Allen. Thank you so much for making our special day so wonderful
Thank you so much, it was an honor to officiate your blessed day!
We had a free Catholic wedding ceremony in March 2018 in Englewood, FL and Father Allen did a great job! As we are from Germany we communicated via email most of the time, but we also had a personal meeting a few days before the wedding to elaborate the final details. Father Allen answered all of our questions and it was a pleasure to get to know him!
Rev. Lincoln was exactly what we were looking for. We were married in Florida in April 2014 and we only spoke over the phone and via email up until we met him at our rehearsal. He helped us with everything and could have helped with even more (i.e. Dj). We described ourselves and what type of wedding we wanted and he came through. Our guests said how much they enjoyed the ceremony. I would recommend him with pleasure.
We are from Indiana and wanted a beach wedding just the 2 of us. We had never met Rev Lincoln so we didn't know what to expect. It was very professional and smooth. He did a great job interjecting the points that we said we wanted. I highly recommend him.
If you want an officiant that is accessible and will help you plan your ceremony, look elsewhere. Rev Lincoln nearly ruined our wedding as we were coming from out of town and Rev Lincoln neglected to return any contact effort regarding our ceremony beyond the initial discussion and reservation deposit. If you are comfortable with being left on your own to assume how your ceremony is going to go, loose ends, and apprehension just prior to your big event, then Rev. Lincoln is suitable. Fortunately we were able to find another local officiant at the last minute who stepped up, responded to our requests timely, and made our day memorable.
This is an inaccurate review under dispute and review for removal. This person hired me 10 days before the wedding, sent me the requisite information to do the wedding, made NO further contact attempt with me nor requested one, and when I called the morning of the wedding told me he hired somebody else. A month later he threatened to write this review if I did not return the nonrefundible deposit. Let me be clear, if you cancel me the day of your wedding because you find it inconvenient to communicate with me, your nonrefundible deposit is a donation to the ministry.
