  • Linda was incredible. At our first meeting to go over our ceremony details, she made us feel so comfortable and like she really wanted to get to know us and our story as a couple. This allowed her to write a ceremony that was unique to us, which was very important. I was amazed at her attention to detail. She went step by step, not missing a beat, of how our ceremony would play out. That's how our ceremony went. Intimate, seamless, and emotional. Her words were beautiful and she spoke directly to us as a couple. Linda is kind, warm, and her heart is full of gold, and that flows out to all she encounters. I will forever remember her and be grateful for her as the woman who married us. Thank you Linda!

    I loved the way the Portuguese and English versions worked in the ceremony so that all the guests were honored and touched. Both the bride and the groom were so present. They truly inhabited the words that were being said.

  • When you pick the person who will marry you, you want to find someone who you connect with, who will help you make the ceremony personal to you, /and/ your future spouse, /and/ your families, /and/ who will help you grow and learn through the process. It's a tall order, but we were so lucky to have found Linda to do all of those things with us!! Through every step in the process she was funny, kind, and patient, and worked beside us to create a unique ceremony from scratch that told our story and brought depth to our nuptials. During the get-to-know-you meeting with Linda, she asked questions that revealed parts of our story from my spouse's perspective that I'd never heard before, and that was priceless to me. Linda brought us closer together as a couple and tailored our ceremony to be exactly what we wanted. She brought some much needed humor during the rehearsal (I can still hear my mom laughing!), her smile was infectious, and she brought so much good energy to our wedding day. Las... Read more

    This wedding was warm and welcoming, just like this couple. Sweet cute-meet story of how they first connected in Guatemala. I loved the stone-warming ceremony, having a stone on each guest’s seat to be warmed by their hands and then collected by the ushers to treasured in the couple’s future home. Along with the geranium they planted!

    Martha and Edward are a lovely couple and we had fun designing the bilingual wedding. Special features included the sand ceremony with their daughters and the presentation of “Las Arras”, the wedding coins, at the close of the ceremony.

  • We were so grateful for Rev. Linda’s availability when the wedding officiant that we had lined up couldn’t come. Linda saved the day! She made the ceremony meaningful, both poignant and humorous. Though we had just an hour to go over details, she included our favorite memories and the important reasons that we were taking this important step in our relationship. We can’t thank her enough!

  • Linda was great. Me and my husband had a meeting with her 2 months prior to the wedding to talk about every detail related to the ceremony. Linda made it to the rehearsal and ceremony on time. She spoke both French and English during the ceremony. I highly recommend her. Thank you Linda. It was a pleasure to meet you

    A truly international wedding! I loved the inclusion of French. Beautiful couple, beautiful families!

  • Linda did an amazing job officiating our wedding. She is detail oriented and created a ceremony that was so personal, as if she has known us for years. Our guests laughed the whole time. I appreciated her responsiveness and flexibility especially since we planned from out of town. Perfect!

    It certainly was a perfect wedding! A beautiful setting in a Buddhist temple. The bride and groom chose a lovely Japanese legend that spoke of pre-destined lovers finding each other by a scarlet thread wrapped around their pinkies. At the end of the ceremony, we used a scarlet thread to bind them. Wit and deep feeling went hand in hand at this wedding.

  • Save the Date Music had the pleasure of working with Linda Canino on 3/31/18 for a wedding ceremony at the Barn at Valhalla. All communications leading up to the event left no doubt in my mind that Linda was completely on top of every detail related to the event well beyond her own role. She has a great communication style, and is warm, responsive and enthusiastic in her approach to the wedding party and all the vendors. On the day of, Linda promptly and efficiently worked out cues with the musicians and ensured that everything went smoothly. We look forward to the opportunity to work with Linda any time!

  • Linda made our ceremony warm, welcoming, and wonderful. We provided the content that reflected who we are as a couple and she helped us weave it all together and bring it to life in a beautiful ceremony. She met with us for several hours on a few different occasions which was above what we expected.

    It was a beautiful fall day for a beautiful couple. So glad the weather and their dogs cooperated! The ceremony was a beautiful blend of French, Jewish traditions and family readings.

    Jenny and Jonathan's wedding ceremony reflected their love of simplicity and the home they are building together. Both families were so supportive and the Carolina Inn was a wonderful venue.

    April and Zach are one gorgeous couple and when Zach lifted April into his arms and carried her down that magnificent staircase at the recessional, we all swooned! The wedding was classy and fun, just like them!

  • Linda was amazing ...both before the wedding in her interview and then in composing such a powerful and personal ceremony. She was spiritual and moving and is well experienced in traditional religious and/or spiritual mixed denominational or just a very spiritual non-denominational ceremony. She was the best I have encountered in all of my travels! I highly recommend that you contact her if you want a moving and memorable ceremony

    Berry Hill was a lovely venue. Family and friends stood in a circle during the ceremony which gave it a close, intimate feeling. I loved saying the Hebrew blessing of praise (Shehecheyanu) to open, per their family tradition. Mazel Tov, Isaac and Marites!
