Very open and flexible - highly reccomend!
Rev Linda Ketchum was a wonderful officiate, beginning, middle and end, for our daughter's wedding this past September. In the meetings before the wedding, she took time to really listen to what the bride and groom wanted while also bringing up ideas and components that they may have not thought of to make their ceremony complete. She was open to the special needs and concerns that were shared about the people involved in the wedding party and special wishes for the readings and extra components wanted. Rev. Ketchum was also fantastic about communication. She connected with me during the rehersal , exchanging cell numbers and let me know what she needed further to help make the special day go smoothly. She was spot on time to the wedding, 30 minutes before, and had ample time to connect with the readders and other special participators in the ceremony. She was pivital in keeping everyone in line and set up to help the wedding go off without a hitch! My husband and I were thrilled to have Rev. Ketchum officiating our daughter and new son-in-law's wedding and reccomend her highly.Sent on 10/10/2019

Non-traditional small ceremony
Reverend Linda Ketchum was personable, friendly, helpful and catered to our every wish for our wedding. Even though we chose to have a small wedding, she created a beautiful atmosphere with her choice of readings. We enjoyed meeting with her and having her officiate our wedding!Sent on 06/26/2019
Reverend Linda Ketchum's reply:Thank you again for choosing me to be your officiant. Your wedding was beautiful and I enjoyed meeting your family

My husband and I wanted a more unique wedding, a Halloween Handfasting to be precise. Reverend Linda was more than happy to accommodate our request! She gave us our "spooky" themed ceremony and also dressed the part (witch hat and all). She is very sweet, kind and understanding. Very easy to speak with. I highly recommend her, especially if you are looking to have a "non-traditional" wedding.Sent on 12/08/2018
Reverend Linda Ketchum's reply:Thanks so much for the great review and allowing me to be your Officiant for your wonderful Halloween wedding

The Best Officiant!
After decades as a Wedding DJ I have worked with hundreds if not thousands of Officiants. Linda is the Best. She is professional, well spoken, and obviously cares. Which is unfortunately not something that can be said for all Officiants. Her delivery is outstanding and she is absolutely the Best I've ever had the pleasure of working with.Sent on 10/01/2019

Rev. Linda was wonderful to work with. She was warm, responsive, and so helpful with picking out readings and creating a secular ceremony that was respectful to our religious families. Rev. Linda was especially invaluable as a calming presence during the rehearsal and ceremony. We're so grateful to her and highly recommend her!Sent on 09/09/2018

A wonderful officiant!
I am the owner of Glamorous Weddings and Linda and I were two of the professionals working a wedding together in June 2019. From the very beginning, she was professional and courteous. I had called to ask a few questions and she was able to answer without hesitation. We needed her advice during rehearsal and she was quick to come up with a resolution. I will definitely recommend Linda to my future clients.Sent on 06/10/2019
Reverend Linda Ketchum's reply:Thank you so much. It was great working with you and I look forward to doing so again soon. It was a beautiful and fun wedding.
Danielle · Married on 09/09/2017
I would highly recommend using Reverend Linda for your wedding. Our ceremony was absolutely beautiful. We chose not to write our own vowels but still wanted something personal and intimate. Linda gave us many options and encouraged us to tweak the ceremony to our liking. She was extremely professional and responsive. Couldn't have asked for a better officiant!Sent on 09/14/2017
Jamie · Married on 08/12/2017
Reverend Linda was so easy to work with and ensured that the ceremony was exactly what we wanted. She sent us various options, readings, and ideas to fill in the ceremony, and followed up with us several times to make sure it was what we wanted. Reverend Linda was extremely responsive and quick to respond to emails. She went along with our goofiness during the ceremony, and overall, she helped make our day beautiful and special!Sent on 08/15/2017

I could not be more pleased with the ceremony Linda performed! Everything was absolutely perfect. She worked with us to make sure that everything was the way we wanted. It was a completely stress free experience and I would not have anyone else be our officiant. I recommend her 100 times over!! Thank you Linda!Sent on 07/11/2017

sara · Married on 06/25/2017
Linda was amazing! My grandma was in hospice, and wouldn't be able to make it to our planned wedding in September. I put out my need for an officiant for a bedside wedding on Friday, and the wedding was on Sunday. Linda was so great, especially since I was nervous since I'm agnostic and my fiance is an atheist. But she did a fantastic job, and I hope to have her with us in September. My grandma loved it, and I'm so happy Linda could help us.Sent on 07/09/2017
Reverend Linda Ketchum's reply:Sara, it was an honor to be of service for this wedding especailly for your grandma. I know it meant alot to you and her both!

Reverend Linda was an amazing officiant and truly helped make our ceremony everything we had imagined and more. She is incredibly compassionate, experienced, wise and great to work with. She helped us create a ceremony that blended our backgrounds and felt very personal. We had many guests tell us that it was the most beautiful ceremony they had ever been to and that was in great part due to Rev Linda. She was also very prepared, flexible and organized throughout the entire time working with us. We also had the pleasure of doing a pre-marital session with her where she provided great wisdom, listening and guidance. Highly recommended! We hope she can make your day as special as ours!Sent on 07/08/2017

Meet Rev. Linda well in advance. Bring your ideas, specific or general. Keep an open mind for her ideas, because she is very creative. (We had a 25th Anniversary celebration.)Sent on 07/25/2016
Think about the spiritual makeup of your guests. Rev. Linda has beautiful words that have general spiritual meaning, so every person--from strictly religious to non-religious--understood & enjoyed our celebration.

Rev Linda takes special care to make sure all participates know their roles in the ceremony She asked questions on how the bride and groom want their ceremony preformed and their expectations.Sent on 06/29/2016
I attended my son's wedding officiated by Rev Linda (aka my mom) and she did an amazing job. She was serious, light hearted and wonderful. She got to do the honor of marrying her grandkids and that is something special.
The first time I attended an occasion Rev Linda spoke at was my grandpa's funeral (her dad). Talk about the hardest thing to do, but she spoke with strength and energy. It was the best/ worst funeral I've ever attended.
If you want a caring, compassionate person to make your special occasion even better, than call Rev Linda. She will treat your event like family :)
