Lin Cressey, Certified Life Celebrant

As a Wedding Celebrant and Officiant, I create ceremonies that are warm, full of love, so your wedding day can be as unique as the two of you and the love your share.

What vision do you have for your wedding ceremony? Your wedding ceremony can set the tone for your entire lovely wedding day. I am committed to full communication with you throughout the entire ceremony writing process to ensure that we share your love story and invite your guests into your ceremony and into your wedding day. I consciously try to lessen my presence in your ceremony so that the focus is truly on you and your wedding party. If possible, I step aside so that I am not in photographs as you recite your vows and share intimate moments meant for just the two of you.

As your Ordained Minister and Wedding Celebrant, you can expect me to:

  • Schedule a brief meeting to talk about your ceremony and the services I will provide as your Officiant. If you live out of state and are coming to Colorado for a destination wedding, let’s visit over the phone or on Skype.
  • Write a ceremony that weaves together your past, your hopes and dreams for the future as well as cultural and ritual elements. Couples have total access to me and to the work we do together to create your very personal and individualized ceremony.
  • Share cue sheets with photographers, musicians and DJs.
  • Honor and purposefully include children who are celebrating your marriage with you.  
  • Provide another Celebrant to perform your ceremony in the event of an emergency.
  • Facilitate a purposeful and well-planned rehearsal that includes a bit of ceremony as well and prepares everyone for the “big event” later that day or the following day.
  • Arrive early at your wedding site, check in with the wedding party and set up my equipment and the ceremonial elements we have included. Shortly after the ceremony, I wish you well, and discretely depart.
  • Present you with a keepsake copy of your ceremony to include with other treasures of your special day.

I will help with your special wedding celebration across the Denver Metro area, including Fort Collins, Loveland, Boulder, Estes Park, Summit County, Denver, Colorado Springs and everywhere in between. Denver, the Front Range and the surrounding area has amazing wedding venues, including parks and your own back yard. Two of my favorite venues have been a gorgeous ranch in the rolling wheat country of western Nebraska and the roof of the Aspen Art Museum just as the aspen leaves were beginning to change colors on the nearby ski slope. The possibilities are endless—just like the love we’re celebrating!

“Thank you so much for being a part of our special day. The ceremony you prepared for us was so beautiful. It couldn’t have been better. There wasn’t a dry eye in the tiny chapel! Despite not meeting before the big day, it felt as though you knew us and that made your words even more special. It was a day I’ll hold close in my heart forever. Thank you!”
