test1“From the first time we met with Lisa we felt comfortable and that our wedding ceremony was in good hands. She took the time to listen to what we wanted and helped us incorporate it into the ceremony.  She was always available if we had any questions or concerns. We wanted a simple and beautiful ceremony that reflected who we are and she did a beautiful job providing that for us.” — Gary & Laurie (July 2013)

“Lisa was such a joy to work with. First of all, she came to us to chat about what we wanted for a wedding. She was open and willing to do anything for us. She was very kind and patient with us and the rest of the wedding party during the rehearsal. The wedding day came, and the rain would not stop coming down and she took the brunt of it. Lisa stood in the rain, glasses full of rain drops and didn’t flinch a bit. She made the ceremony about us and didn’t have a single complaint. We definitely recommend her for future weddings.” — Erica & Cory (June 2014)

“Lisa officiated both of my weddings this summer and did an amazing job! She married us on our original date in May and also our postponed date in August. She was able to tailor the wedding to fit our morals and values and had a lot of materials to choose from to make it our own. It was the perfect day and I can’t recommend Lisa enough!” — Mr. & Mrs. Chavez (August 2020)

“We really appreciate all of the guidance you provided during the rehearsal, and even though the ceremony outdoors was very windy and a bit cooler than we expected, the ceremony was very beautiful. Thank you for helping us with all the choices we needed to make for the ceremony, giving us direction during the ceremony, and doing a wonderful job with all of the readings. We greatly appreciate all of your help with everything…” — Tony & Corinne (September 2016)

“We were really appreciative of how you met with us and put a personal touch on our service. You really helped make our special day everything we hoped it would be and more.” — Chip & Sabina (September 2014)

test3“We were totally impressed with every aspect of your service, as pastor of one of the most important times of our lives– starting with our pre-meeting where you spent a great deal of time and patience explaining all the aspects of the ceremony, giving recommendations and then sitting back while we decided what would be best for us. At the ceremony we were a little nervous, as one might expect, and you were very comforting.  Your delivery was flawless. Once the ceremony was over you made sure all the little details were properly executed.  You had the witnesses sign the marriage license and then you took it with you and sent it in for us.  All of this was accomplished in coordination with the photographer taking pictures and Ann and I rejoicing with our family. Thank you again for making this day a huge success.” — Rick & Ann (June 2014)

“Lisa was an absolute pleasure to work with! My husband and I cannot begin to say how much we enjoyed working with Lisa! From our very first meeting to our wedding day she spent the time to get to know us as a couple. We did premarital counseling with Lisa and learned a lot of valuable relationship advice. My husband and I feel that the counseling we had with Lisa has made our relationship stronger. Lisa helped to make our vision of our ceremony come to life. She spent time with us to make a personalized wedding ceremony that we loved. She was open to our ideas and had great ideas of her own. We would recommend having Lisa as your premarital counselor and/or wedding officiate to anyone! You won’t regret it!” — Samantha & Mike (July 2015)

“Pastor Lisa was wonderful!!! At the very last minute my officiant told me he could no longer come to my wedding due to health reasons. Since our wedding was only 2 weeks ahead, I understandably started panicking! Our wedding coordinator gave us Lisa’s name and I called her instantly. She was so understanding and didn’t make me feel at all that what I was asking was unachievable or too last minute. She worked with our coordinator and did everything she could to fit us in to her busy schedule (as she had prior arrangements with another wedding party on the same day)! She is very compassionate, kind and does whatever she can to help make your day special. I would definitely recommend her to anyone!” — Anonymous (September 2013)

“In looking for a wedding minister in the Brainerd area, we were looking for someone who is caring and spiritual and that we could connect with on a personal level. A must-have was someone who could also conduct a meaningful ceremony, one that not only included all the necessary elements, but left room for the addition of our own personal and special sentiments to one another. Lisa fits that profile perfectly. She was willing to meet well beforehand, listen to our thoughts and concerns, and offered numerous options and ideas for making the ceremony meaningful, modern, and tailor-made. She was also open to having a rehearsal and was just the person to make the whole experience stress-free. And… she is not only a childrens’ pastor and conducts womens’ self-esteem seminars, but has also written a book on how to have a successful marriage. Thank you, Lisa, for delivering us a most wonderful ceremony experience!” — Anonymous (August 2013)


“We appreciated the opportunity we had to work with Lisa regarding our wedding ceremony. We found Lisa to be pleasant, prompt, and reliable throughout the process of our planning and then again on our wedding day. Lisa was articulate in letting us know what our options were prior to the wedding, and she worked in a collaborative way that ensured our ideas were incorporated into the ceremony. Ultimately, she delivered the message that we wished to share on our wedding day. We were happy to have had the chance to work with Lisa.” –Anonymous (August 2012)

“We were so happy to have Lisa be a part of our special day. We couldn’t have imagined anyone but her to perform our marriage ceremony. She was so great to work with, in the beginning from marriage counseling to the ceremony day, she made everything perfect for us! If we had to get married all over again we would definitely choose her again.” — Rachel & Bryan (May 2015)

“Thank you so much for officiating our wedding. You were such a joy to work with and so helpful with all of the answers you provided for us. We have had many compliments about our ceremony and how sweet you were. We can’t tell you enough how much we appreciate it.” — Abbey & Josh (August 2015)

“Thank you so much for all you have done for us. You have made us so much more confident and prepared for our future. We are so blessed to have all of your guidance and advice to reflect on for the rest of our lives. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!” — Amber & Sam (September 2015)

“Thank you so much!… All of our guests gave many compliments on how well you did.” — Alex & Melissa (October 2015)
