So happy we got to be married by Linda!
she is such a joy to be around. very professional at her job, she sent us many rough drafts before we finalized what would be said at our ceremony.
Her voice is delightful to listen too! We could not be happier with Linda!
A very kind and reliable officiant
A shining and joyful light!
Linda was able to roll with us as we sloshed through the mud, navigated to a pretty loose and carefree schedule, took pee breaks in the woods, and paused every few steps for photos.
Linda was not "just our officiant" - she was an integral part of our ceremony. She felt like family. A loved one. A friend. She embodied the words she spoke that were a true reflection of my husband and I.
We are so grateful for the magic she brought to our elopement. We highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a heartfelt, loving and luminous light to guide them across the marriage threshold.
Thank you, Linda!

Helped Create Magic
We had been looking for someone who could blend elements of a traditional ceremony with the non-conventional/pagan elements we were wanting to add and Linda was wonderfully accommodating. The ceremony she wrote for us brought tears of joy to our eyes and our family was commenting for days how beautiful it was.
We would highly recommend Island Ceremonies to anyone.
Amazing! Very happy with ceremony!
An awesome choice!
The perfect day
Linda is so easy to chat with, warm and genuine and helped make our day perfect.
