Nora & Tom, Amherst, MA Fall 2018
My partner and I are both secular people with complicated feelings about marriage, and I couldn’t imagine finding anyone who could perform a wedding ceremony that felt like *us.* I especially couldn’t have imagined a ceremony that felt like us but was also beautiful, and in its own way felt like a sacred ritual. I am so grateful for the thought that Lindsey put into marrying us in a way that felt true to us. Over a series of meetings, she guided us through conversations about what our partnership means to us, which remain far and away one of the most meaningful parts of getting married. We felt so seen and heard in those conversations, and in the beautiful ceremony she wrote, which fit us—as we are and as we hope to be—in every word. Thank you, Lindsey, for a process and a day that meant more to us than we could have imagined!

I cannot recommend Lindsey enough for any type of couple or any ceremony - traditional or otherwise. She is kind, compassionate, understanding, and brought a feeling of calm and peace to a day that is overwhelming for any couple. We really enjoyed getting to know her and working with her to make our day special. She met with us twice before the wedding just to chat and get an idea of the values our relationship is based on and what marriage means to us. From those two meetings she crafted a message for our wedding ceremony that made our guests think she’d known us for years. (Seriously - many of our guests assumed she was an old friend!) It was personal, heartfelt, warm, and truly unforgettable. She did an amazing job and we are so thankful for all that she did for us.

I can not say enough amazing things about Lindsey!!! She made my husband and I feel so comfortable both before and during our wedding ceremony at Gedney Farm. She is the absolute best officiant a bride and groom can hire. She made our ceremony so personalized that even our guests couldn’t stop talking about how beautiful the ceremony was. She goes above and beyond to make your perfect day incredibly special. I couldn’t have asked for a better ceremony and I owe that all to Lindsey! She is incredible!!

Lindsey was a great choice for our officiant. She kindly and confidently guided us through the process and thoughtfully discussed what we were looking for with the ceremony, as well as the background of our relationship. We appreciated her ability to make the ceremony spiritual but not religious. She drew our attention, both ahead of time and on the day of our wedding, to the importance of this day and our vows. She included our friends and family and consistently made us feel that she was 100% on our side. On the day of, she was prepared and led with confidence, right there when we needed her and a calming influence. We found Lindsey through a friend, and she also felt like a friend right away.
Lynn & Marcia
Lindsey officiated our wedding in Connecticut in 2011. As a same sex couple, we chose her since she knew us personally which made the experience very intimate. This was our second wedding marking the 20th anniversary of our first non-legal union. Her involvement included words of support by her at the ceremony. Music was a large part of the event including her learning and playing Tret Fure’s Wedding Song. She is a talented and gracious officiate, preforming her role with warmth and care and attention to the finest detail.

Lindsey was absolutely amazing. She was so easy to talk to and helped to make my now husband and I feel so comfortable during the planning process. She really listened to what we wanted and made our ceremony feel unique and wonderful. I would 100% recommend Lindsey for your officiant needs. What a wonderful person!
Nettie & Matteo's heartfelt wedding in Amherst, MA
Lindsey has a graceful and charismatic nature, and she fills every space she walks into with a feeling of peace and love. We knew this about her before we asked her to be our wedding officiant; in fact, this was partly why we asked her. During the preparation for the ceremony we learned also of her ability to listen actively, insightfully, compassionately. She gave us the time and patience, not only to learn what we wanted for our wedding day, but also to learn who we are as individuals and as a couple. Her understanding of us made our celebration personal and intimate. It was more than a declaration of our commitment to one another. It was a declaration of who we want to be for each other and with one another.

Lindsey is a warm, friendly, funny, and outgoing person. We have been friends with her for a long time and were thrilled to have her officiate our wedding. She was very accommodating and made sure we were happy and comfortable with the ceremony. Our wedding went very smoothly and the ceremony was just what we wanted. We would definitely recommend Lindsey to anyone!
Meera and David (and me)
Lindsey officiated our non-traditional wedding ceremony with finesse. The ceremony combined Hindu, Protestant and non-religious elements, and Lindsey took the time to understand our vision and seamlessly blend each culture’s tradition. We so appreciated Lindsey’s ability to listen and respect our ideas while adding her unique touch. Thank you, Lindsey!”

We highly recommend Lindsey to be your officiant. Our wedding ceremony was so heartfelt and touching. Many of our guests commented on how wonderful our ceremony was because of her work. Lindsey took the time to meet with us prior to our wedding to get to know our “story” and create our personal and memorable ceremony. Lindsey is very warm and welcoming as well as flexible. We truly enjoyed working with her.
