About Rev. Lynn Rev-Lynn-Gladstone-com-The-Knot-Best-of-Weddings-2016-Pick
I've always been profoundly interested in
the world and moved by different cultures, religions, customs and rituals, as well as how to harvest the great happiness and meaning from love, family and raising children. I explored many paths in pursuit of these interests–from social worker to entrepreneur to human resources director–before finding the one that wove them all together and unlocked my true mission in life: becoming an interfaith minister.
Reviews
"We absolutely loved working with Lynn. She took the time to get to know us, and ask really thoughtful questions. Lynn personalized the ceremony and worked with us to create something meaningful that reflected our personalities."
Ashley & Blake, Married 2016, MA

"Lynn was sensational. She got to know us from the start of our first meeting and counseled us until our wedding ceremony. Her words of wisdom guided us throughout the months we worked together."
Michael & Heather, Married 2016, NY

"Blessed. When we met face to face it confirmed what we already had thought, that she (Rev. Lynn) was in fact the perfect person to tell our story."

"Nothing Short of Amazing. Lynn was faced with the ultimate obstacles in preparing for our Wedding ceremony; we were uncommunicative, provided little information, and certainly weren't prompt."
Martin & Oliver, Married 2015, CA

Sample Ceremony
One of the best ways to find out if an interfaith minister is right for you is to witness one of their ceremonies, which is why I’ve shared one of mine with you.
My Approach
All ceremonies are unique because every person or family I work with is unique. Ceremonies are designed to suit your wishes and the occasion and you are welcome to participate as much or as little as you’d like in the process.
Pricing And Contact
I regard performing ceremonies as acts of grace–a bringing forth of joy or healing in the lives of the people I work with and in the world around them. My basic price for a Custom Ceremony is $500. A Sweet and Simple Service (such as an Elopement) is $350.
