Linda is excellent and any couple would be lucky to have her conduct their ceremony! When we first met with Linda, my now-husband and I told her all about how we met, what we loved about each other, and the ceremony we were envisioning. She made some great suggestions and helped us figure out how to include everything we wanted in our ceremony, as well as how to balance my husband's Southern Baptist family with our more secular preferences.
Linda provided a reference for some possible readings to include, and some options of vows we could use. Though we decided to write our own vows, we were able to choose some ring-exchange vows to include as well. Throughout working with us, Linda provided several drafts of our ceremony, and made all of the (nitpicky) changes we requested. She included a couple readings we had found, and in the final draft even snuck in a quote from Winnie the Pooh (which I had mentioned wanting to include, but never chose a specific one). That little touch made me realize that Linda had really listened to us and wanted to create a beautiful and personal ceremony for us.
Finally, on our wedding day, Linda went above and beyond! Realizing that I had never specified what we wanted her to wear, she provided multiple options for me to be able to choose (though her assumption was already spot on). Shortly before the ceremony, Linda caught up with our ceremony musicians, to make sure they knew their cues and there were no mishaps. She also, thankfully, came prepared with copious tissues for all of my crying throughout the ceremony. Thank you for being so thoughtful, Linda!
All of our guests raved throughout the reception about how lovely our ceremony had been, and that t really moved them. I am so glad we chose to go with Rev. Linda McWhorter to officiate our wedding, because I know anyone else just would not have quite gotten it right.
Rev. Linda is absolutely lovely in every single way, and made our quaint little wedding pure perfection. She is articulate, loving, kind, compassionate, and was the perfect jewel to tie everything together on our special day. The work she put into the ceremony before the wedding was profound, and it truly made us feel special. One of our biggest request was to incorporate our children (ages 10, 10, 15, 18) into the ceremony, and she had amazing heartfelt ideas. Our day was perfect because she is so wonderful, and we highly recommend her. Rev. Linda is doing exactly what God has called her to do, as she truly is an angel!
Words cannot express how wonderful Linda is! She was honestly more than we ever could’ve asked for. She is patient, kind and truly loves LOVE! Your ceremony will be carefully and thoughtfully crafted; 100% customized. She spent a fare amount of time with us over the phone developing an understanding of who we were as a couple and about our love story. Our wife and I felt so honored to have her officiate our wedding!
Our Journey with Linda began in a coffee shop in northwest Austin. My wife and I enjoyed a cup of coffee with Linda as we unfolded our story of unity. Linda took the time to truly get to know us and she connected with us in a profound way, it seemed that our roads were destined to cross as we felt that we were old friends. Linda accommodated our family and officiated our entire ceremony in Spanish! On a personal note, Linda went beyond officiating our ceremony, she was the bridge between the heavens and our sacred vows. Her blessings, beautiful scripture choice, delicate touch, poetic readings and above all, her genuine spirit created a profound memory in our souls. I am proud to call Linda our friend. If you want the best experience, Linda is the only choice. We cannot image our ceremony without her. Thank you, Linda.
Our wedding was in May of 2017 and we just wanted something small and very simple. Linda was such a great person and we were so grateful to have her with officiate our wedding. It was wonderful. She was also so kind as to officiate a great friend of mine’s wedding as well and was very flexible which was great!
Linda was so personable and she made our ceremony so special and personal.
Choosing Rev Linda as our wedding officiant was a special blessing who captured our hearts instantly! Last summer, we met Rev Linda for the first time and talked with her for a few hours. What fun! We spent time sharing our love story with her and discussing ideas and special requests to include in our wedding narrative. Rev Linda's Idea Book was very helpful in tailoring parts of our ceremony to us. She was attentive, caring, considerate and supportive of our wishes. We exchanged a lot of information and shared a lot of light hearted moments with her during our meeting. We came away feeling more excitement about our wedding day and looked forward to receiving her draft of the narrative. We were not disappointed. She captured our story, our readings, our vows and family references perfectly. Just before the ceremony, Rev Linda checked in on us to calm our nerves with a few laughs and hugs. Our ceremony was beautiful. With each word spoken it was clear that Rev Linda truly honored our special day. She expressed them in a genuine, warm tone marked by reverence, love, joy and celebration. Upon her pronouncement of our marriage Rev Linda's smile was as big as ours! Our guests loved Rev Linda, too. Like us, many were shedding very happy tears as they listened to Rev Linda perform our wedding ceremony. So, a very enthusiastic thank you to Rev Linda! We highly recommend Rev Linda if you are seeking a truly personable and professional wedding officiant.

Rev. Linda was WONDERFUL! She was absolutely wonderful! My friends and family talked about how great of a job she did and how much they enjoyed the ceremony. (someone even said she was the best they had ever heard). She made the ceremony one of the most memorable parts of the day- which is hard to do as the whole thing is practically a blurr. :) She worked with us beforehand to customize our ceremony and vows and provided a huge list of example readings and vows. I could not have asked for someone else- she did even better than I had wished. I would definitely rec commend her!
After our wedding guests asked us over and over "Where did you find your Reverend". Let me say I feel truly blessed to have had such great vendors and Linda is apart of that. My husband is born and raised in Chicago and our wedding was following the World Series win. Did I mention that Rev. Linda is a Cubs fan? We told her that we wanted to incorporate the Cubs win into the ceremony and boy did she deliver!!! She even had a Cubs decal on her binder during the ceremony and everyone LOVED it. It was great. The ceremony she delivered overall was special and heartfelt and we will never forget this. She was absolutely AMAZING! Such a blessing to have met her and have her a part of a day we'll remember for the rest of our lives. Thank you Rev. Mcwhorter it was such a pleasure to have you on our wedding day. We will be forever grateful for the beautiful ceremony you provided us with.
Linda was the biggest blessing to our wedding. She was so wonderful, professional, and kind. We were having the hardest time with picking an officiant. We wanted some one who would understand our story and not just be some one talking at the alter, but some one who could put our love in words. Linda was the perfect officiant for our wedding. After our first meeting with her we were just amazed at how well of a fit she was for us. Linda just had a wonderfully sweet way about her that made us feel like she knew us. The day of the wedding she was very professional and very very I stress VERY helpful. The service she performed brought me to tears! She put our story and our life into that ceremony. I wasn't just a generic ceremony any one could get off of google, it was ours and ours alone. Linda even involved our kids in the ceremony and it melted every ones hearts. If you want a personal ceremony done by some one who takes the time to get to know you Rev. Linda McWhorter is your officiant. Linda will forever be one of the best blessings to our wedding and we could thank her enough
We were so blessed to have Rev. Linda McWhorter officiate our wedding. Neither of us are originally from Austin and did not have close ties to a church, so we were in need of someone who could bring a sense of spirituality to our marriage, while maintaining a light-hearted sensibility. Linda could not have been a better fit. From our very first meeting, she really honed in on our personalities and was able to express the type of vibe we wanted for our ceremony. She was very professional and was able to guide us through the ceremony with ease. On day of the wedding, there was a delay in the arrival of guests, to which Linda was very accommodating. Throughout the entire process, she made us feel like we were in good hands. Even though we had only met a few times, it felt as though we were being wed by a family friend. We would highly recommend her to any couple in need of an officiant for their wedding.
Getting married in a different city we were so worried we would not be able to find a good officiant/reverend. Linda was beyond what we could of asked for she was so sweet, kind, attentive and helpful. We didn't have any specifics set in mind she went out of her way to help us achieve a beautiful ceremony. She also did an amazing job incorporating our children into the ceremony. I would hands down recommend her to any bride and groom! Thank you so much Linda for helping make our day special ????
Linda provided everything needed to plan the ceremony. We were able to pick and choose what we wanted to customize our ceremony. She worked well with us, and knew all of our family members names. She worked hard to make our wedding truly wonderful! Rev. McWhorter is awesome!!!
Couldn't have asked for a better wedding officiant! Linda made sure our ceremony was personalized in every way! She met with us via Skype, as it was more convenient, and incorporated our comments into our ceremony. Linda even provided a final written copy of our ceremony to keep forever! She was gracious and patient when including our young children. Her service was invaluable!!!
Rev Linda was more than we could have asked for! She makes you feel comfortable right away and really makes a point to incorporate your personalities into the ceremony. She was completely open and accepting of any changes we had. The ceremony she put together for us was so beautiful! Everyone was coming up to us afterwards and telling us how beautiful it was. We even had someone come and ask for her information as she is getting married soon! We would recommend Rev Linda in a heartbeat and feel so lucky that we had her for our special day!
Rev. Linda was such a joy to work with. She was professional, helpful and full of positive energy. She officiated the wedding so beautifully and perfectly! We would recommend her over and over again.
Awww, thank you for the kinds words, Jessica! From my side, it was you, Daniel and your beautiful daughter Amaya that were a joy to work with. It was such a beautiful wedding ceremony, so filled with love and family! Thank you for choosing me as your wedding Officiant! I wish your family many years of happiness together! - Rev. Linda McWhorter
Linda is a very wonderful and understanding person. She made me feel at ease and not to worry. She had another wedding to go to and I was late starting my ceremony. Everything was hectic and she calmed me down and told me not to worry. her words were beautiful at the ceremony and everyone loved all the scriptures she had to say. She even included my stepson and tears came out of me. She also conducted the ceremony in spanish and I loved it and she made it very special and I will always remember her. She also did the lasso tradition that catholics do in the church and it meant a lot to me!! I would recommend her to anyone needing an officiant.
My husband and I had a small ceremony at Chapel Dulcinea in Austin, TX. We booked the venue one month before our wedding date and found Linda within that short amount of time. We first spoke through a Skype video chat since we were from out of town. She got to know us, asked all about our relationship, and wanted to give us the ceremony that we dreamed of down to the very little details. She even did a baby blessing of our 2 month old son at the ceremony, which we were very thankful for. It was all very heartwarming! Linda was extremely friendly, met and got along great with all of our family members, and truly made our sweet and intimate wedding ceremony everything that we wanted and more. I cannot recommend her enough!
Reverend McWhorter is amazing! We had 2 consultations with her prior to the wedding where she was able to gain some information and insight about us and our relationship. We contacted her quite early in our planning process and she drew up our entire ceremony narrative months before the wedding. We were able to provide feedback on the ceremony to help tailor it to our expectations and desires. She is a very kind, caring lady and I would definitely recommend her to anyone! Thank you Reverend Linda!
Linda was the perfect officiant for us. We don't belong to a church and were not getting married in one, so we went to the Internet to find the person who was going to marry us. We wanted a secular but very meaningful ceremony and Linda was happy to give us any type of ceremony we desired. We had a good feeling from Linda right away; she immediately responded to our email and asked us to chat on Skype with her (since we don't live in Austin). I think we probably chatted with her for about an hour and immediately felt at ease. We met in person a few weeks later in Austin and she was very flexible with the date and time. While she's only performing a 20-30 minute job, it was really important for her to get to know us so that she could make our ceremony special and sincere, and we really appreciated that. We got compliments all night about the length, content, and meaningfulness of the ceremony. Linda also has a great book of readings and ceremony ideas that helped us a lot in crafting our ceremony.
Linda was wonderful to work with. When looking for an officiant we needed someone who was bilingual in Spanish and English and could incorporate cultural aspects to include my husbands family in the wedding. Linda listened to all of our requests and was never pushy. She made as many revisions as necessary until we were comfortable. By no fault of her own, the only aspect that could have been improved was to include a mic for our guests in the back rows (of our outdoor wedding) to hear her beautiful ceremony. I highly recommend Linda to any couples!!
I don't know what I would have done without Linda. She was amazing from the moment we met to our final farewell. I found Linda online after doing quite a bit of research. Based on her other reviews and webpage, I thought she would be a good match for me and my husband. We met her at a local coffee shop and I knew right away that she was the perfect person to marry us. She was so patient and caring and made us feel special. She went over details I wouldn't have even thought about and worked closely with us to create an amazing ceremony. She was able to personalize it after getting to know us and gave us great recommendations on sample vows and other traditional ceremony practices. She made it super easy for us to change the details of our ceremony by sharing a digital copy of the entire written ceremony. She kept us on track over months of planning, and always made sure we were happy with what was written.
On the day of the wedding, she made me feel calm and relaxed knowing that she would make sure the ceremony went smoothly. She arrived early and made sure she met all of our family and wedding party. We didn't have a rehearsal prior to the wedding, but the day still flowed perfectly with her help. Linda has an amazing heart and truly understands how to create a custom and unique wedding ceremony for anyone. She was an absolute pleasure to work with!
My husband and I enjoyed working with Linda, and we were so pleased with the ceremony on our wedding day. We wrote our own vows, and Linda asked just the right questions to prompt our creativity. Linda provides a variety of materials to look through, and we found one of our readings from her collection. This reading led us to a deeper understanding of our wedding vows and inspired the theme for the ceremony. Linda is a gentle, patient and kind person, and she is VERY experienced. We felt like we were in really capable hands, and we highly recommend Linda to others.
So impressed with Rev. Linad! Out of every vendor I worked with for our wedding; hair, make up, dress shopping etc,no one was as special or attentive as our officiant Linda. She was amazing. From the first time my fiance and I met her, she made us feel so comfortable and it was clear to see she came from a very warm and loving place. It was refreshing for us to find an officiant that was a spirtiual and godly person but, open minded and non-judgmental of all walks of love because that is important to both Josh and I. She is truly a special person. Our wedding day went as smoothly as possible and she made our ceremony so beautiful and personalized for us. It was very meaningful and felt from the heart. Thank you Reverend Linda for guiding us through this important time in a couples relationship. We will refer you to anyone who needs a service you can provide.
Linda responded to our first email immediately and provided us with all necessary information. We set up our first meeting with her and were very pleased. Linda asked us a lot of questions to make our ceremony as personal as possible.
She was very interested and shared many creative ideas with us which was very helpful.
A few days after the meeting we already received the first draft of the ceremony. She included us in the process and provided us with a booklet of poems, songs and other ideas to choose from. She stayed in touch with us throughout, sending reminders and tips, which I truly appreciated!!!
She arrived early the day of the wedding, had our vows printed out for us and everything organized. We didn't have to worry about anything!
Now let me tell you about the ceremony: IT WAS ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL!!!! We could have not asked for a better officiant! Linda was very professional, and the ceremony was very personal and touching.
She not only gets 5+ stars from us but from my wedding guests as well. A lot of them were asking about her after the wedding and told us how absolutely wonderful she was.
Thank you so much Linda! We appreciate you more than you know!!!
Johanna and Nguyen,
You two were a joy to work with and work for. And, it was great meeting your families and friends. There were so many highlights in the ceremony for me, two of the most memorable was when your dad, Johanna, trembling, shook Nguyen's hand and told him how happy he was that he was marrying his daughter (I almost lost it then, but had to stay professional!) and when the Wind gods kicked up to bless your marriage, affirming to you Nguyen and all the other windsurfers in attendance, that indeed your marriage is blessed by the gods and goddesses! Thank you for choosing me to be your Officiant. I will always remember your wedding day! - Rev. Linda McWhorter
