About Us

Dear Couple:

Congratulations on your upcoming wedding! Your wedding day will be one of the most memorable days of your life and I would be honored to be a part of your special day!

Having 27 years experience working as an award winning producer and director with "live shows" at Lincoln Center, and working with celebrities, I view my couples' weddings with a professional eye in every aspect.

Unlike a movie there is no "Take 2" in your ceremony!

A "Take 1" ceremony is PERFECT from beginning to end!

In addition I work as a Trauma Therapist, educator, and professional healthcare trainer for 17 years.

If a couple experiences wedding jitters or nervousness I can help calm their systems through my work so they have a wonderful wedding.

As an ordained Interfaith Minister, for the last 16 years, I will work with you to design a unique and special ceremony to fit your needs and expectations. All my work is personalized. My training allows me to work with many different religions, couples of mixed faiths or spiritualities (for example: Christianity (Protestantism and Catholicism), Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism, Taoism, Shinto, Islam, Sufism, Shamanism, Native American, Goddess Spirituality, Celtic, Wiccan, etc.).

My work also includes officiating at non-denominational spiritual weddings, as well as romantic and creative civil ceremonies.

And I welcome and meet the needs from couples of the LBGT community.

In our free introductory meeting, phone, Skype or Zoom consultation we will discuss your background and how you envision your special day. After our talk, if you wish me to officiate at your wedding, together we will begin the process of creating your ceremony.

I own a car and travel through the tri-state area officiating and also welcome couples from abroad.

Many couples look for guidance in finding rituals, readings, poetry, and prayers that honor them and their family traditions and I am here to assist in that process. I also incorporate stories of the couple’s life together, how they met, their first date or their proposal, bringing sweetness and humor to their ceremonies.

Please call upon me if you feel I can meet your needs as an officiant.

Rev. Lynn E. Bourbeau, SEP
