Rev. Linda is absolutely lovely in every single way, and made our quaint little wedding pure perfection. She is articulate, loving, kind, compassionate, and was the perfect jewel to tie everything together on our special day. The work she put into the ceremony before the wedding was profound, and it truly made us feel special. One of our biggest request was to incorporate our children (ages 10, 10, 15, 18) into the ceremony, and she had amazing heartfelt ideas. Our day was perfect because she is so wonderful, and we highly recommend her. Rev. Linda is doing exactly what God has called her to do, as she truly is an angel!
Linda is truly the best officiant I have seen! She truly makes your wedding ceremony exactly what you dream of and can definitely hold your guests attention. He is competively priced, very professional, punctual and communication with her is easy and painless! I would highly recommend Rev McWhorter!!
I cannot say enough wonderful things about Linda! From the first time we met her I knew she was the perfect person to officiate our wedding. We talked with her for a few hours, telling our story and listening to her own love story. She put together the most beautiful wedding ceremony, and you honestly feel she is honored to be a part of your day. Her happiness for you is genuine. We had a slight hiccup in our ceremony ( a slight delay in finding the rings!!) but she kept everything lighthearted and flowing. I would highly recommend Linda if you are looking for an officiant for your wedding. You will not be disappointed!
Our wedding was in September 2017 and I'm just getting around to writing reviews... but Rev. Linda was really wonderful. When we first met her, I knew she would do a great job capturing the essence of what we wanted in the ceremony narrative. We were able to customize our ceremony because she had a documents with many, many sample texts, poems, scriptures, etc. Everyone commented on how beautiful the ceremony was. Thank you Linda!
Words cannot express how wonderful Linda is. My wife and I used her for our wedding in August and her contribution was more than we ever could have asked for. Linda is patient, kind, accepting and truly loves LOVE! Her weddings are 100% customized to fit the couple. She spent an hour on the phone just getting to know who we were and understanding our love story. She wrote the most beautiful ceremony and the entire day was perfect! You would be doing yourself a favor in hiring her to officiate your wedding!
Linda is excellent and any couple would be lucky to have her conduct their ceremony! When we first met with Linda, my now-husband and I told her all about how we met, what we loved about each other, and the ceremony we were envisioning. She made some great suggestions and helped us figure out how to include everything we wanted in our ceremony, as well as how to balance my husband's Southern Baptist family with our more secular preferences. Linda provided a reference for some possible readings to include, and some options of vows we could use. Though we decided to write our own vows, we were able to choose some ring-exchange vows to include as well. Throughout working with us, Linda provided several drafts of our ceremony, and made all of the (nitpicky) changes we requested. She included a couple readings we had found, and in the final draft even snuck in a quote from Winnie the Pooh (which I had mentioned wanting to include, but never chose a specific one). That little touch made me realize that Linda had really listened to us and wanted to create a beautiful and personal ceremony for us. Finally, on our wedding day, Linda went above and beyond! Realizing that I had never specified what we wanted her to wear, she provided multiple options for me to be able to choose (though her assumption was already spot on). Shortly before the ceremony, Linda caught up with our ceremony musicians, to make sure they knew their cues and there were no mishaps. She also, thankfully, came prepared with copious tissues for all of my crying throughout the ceremony. Thank you for being so thoughtful, Linda! All of our guests raved throughout the reception about how lovely our ceremony had been, and that t really moved them. I am so glad we chose to go with Rev. Linda McWhorter to officiate our wedding, because I know anyone else just would not have quite gotten it right.
We were so blessed to have Rev. Linda McWhorter officiate our wedding. Neither of us are originally from Austin and did not have close ties to a church, so we were in need of someone who could bring a sense of spirituality to our marriage, while maintaining a light-hearted sensibility. Linda could not have been a better fit. From our very first meeting, she really honed in on our personalities and was able to express the type of vibe we wanted for our ceremony. She was very professional and was able to guide us through the ceremony with ease. On day of the wedding, there was a delay in the arrival of guests, to which Linda was very accommodating. Throughout the entire process, she made us feel like we were in good hands. Even though we had only met a few times, it felt as though we were being wed by a family friend. We would highly recommend her to any couple in need of an officiant for their wedding.
Linda was the biggest blessing to our wedding. She was so wonderful, professional, and kind. We were having the hardest time with picking an officiant. We wanted some one who would understand our story and not just be some one talking at the alter, but some one who could put our love in words. Linda was the perfect officiant for our wedding. After our first meeting with her we were just amazed at how well of a fit she was for us. Linda just had a wonderfully sweet way about her that made us feel like she knew us. The day of the wedding she was very professional and very very I stress VERY helpful. The service she performed brought me to tears! She put our story and our life into that ceremony. I wasn't just a generic ceremony any one could get off of google, it was ours and ours alone. Linda even involved our kids in the ceremony and it melted every ones hearts. If you want a personal ceremony done by some one who takes the time to get to know you Rev. Linda McWhorter is your officiant. Linda will forever be one of the best blessings to our wedding and we could thank her enough
After our wedding guests asked us over and over "Where did you find your Reverend". Let me say I feel truly blessed to have had such great vendors and Linda is apart of that. My husband is born and raised in Chicago and our wedding was following the World Series win. Did I mention that Rev. Linda is a Cubs fan? We told her that we wanted to incorporate the Cubs win into the ceremony and boy did she deliver!!! She even had a Cubs decal on her binder during the ceremony and everyone LOVED it. It was great. The ceremony she delivered overall was special and heartfelt and we will never forget this. She was absolutely AMAZING! Such a blessing to have met her and have her a part of a day we'll remember for the rest of our lives. Thank you Rev. Mcwhorter it was such a pleasure to have you on our wedding day. We will be forever grateful for the beautiful ceremony you provided us with.
Rev. Linda was WONDERFUL! She was absolutely wonderful! My friends and family talked about how great of a job she did and how much they enjoyed the ceremony. (someone even said she was the best they had ever heard). She made the ceremony one of the most memorable parts of the day- which is hard to do as the whole thing is practically a blurr. :) She worked with us beforehand to customize our ceremony and vows and provided a huge list of example readings and vows. I could not have asked for someone else- she did even better than I had wished. I would definitely recommend her!
Linda was such a joy to work with! She was dependable, attentive, and caring. We didn't have a wedding planner, but Linda kept us on point and made sure our ceremony was truly unforgettable! Thank you Linda!
Linda is phenomenal! The ceremony was absolutely perfect and moved some people to tears (but not in a sappy way!) Several people said it was one of the most beautiful and intimate ceremonies they have witnessed and Linda made that happen. Linda talked to us both extensively to find out who we are -- to find out exactly what we wanted to say about our love -- and helped us figure out how to say it. She made our ceremony perfectly personal and suited to us. She made it feel just right. Aside from the awesome ceremony, she brought out all the extras. She helped us stay on track with deadlines, with writing our vows, and even with getting our marriage license (she sent it back for us, which is one less hassle to do ourselves after the wedding!) She even created beautiful, personalized, hand-made little booklets for us to read our vows from. We now have those momentos to cherish for the rest of our lives. I'd recommend Linda to anyone, hands down!
Linda made our ceremony truly unique and special! She took the time to get to know us and ensure our ceremony really reflected us and our love. She brought a wealth of wonderful ideas and words and helped us craft a beautiful ceremony. An added perk is that she is bilingual so we were able to have our ceremony in both Spanish & English! I highly recommend Rev. Linda if you are looking for a truly special ceremony!
Linda is wonderful!Reviewed on 1/01/2016 Nicole V
Linda is fantastic. We met with her beforehand and she's very friendly and easy going. Throughout the process, she was very helpful and reminded us about deadlines and things we would need for the ceremony. The cost was affordable as well for such great service. So happy we chose Linda and she was a part of our big day!
Excellent and personal serviceReviewed on 10/04/2014 Katy N
Linda was so kind and patient as we put together our ceremony. We had some specific expectations about exactly how religious our ceremony would be, and she helped us put together a perfect ceremony that met our and our family's needs. We received SO many compliments about the service! I highly recommend. She is flexible and open minded to all needs.
Genuine, Passionate, ArticulateReviewed on 4/21/2014 Kaley M
We had such an emotional, fun, personal ceremony and we owe it all to Reverend Linda! From the first time we met her we knew she would deliver a memorable ceremony for us as she was very personal, heart felt, and a great communicator. She listened to what was important to us and worked with us to guarantee all those things were incorporated into our ceremony. I don't think there was a dry eye amongst the guests and people have been commenting on how genuine & emotional the ceremony was. Thanks, Linda!
Wonderful OfficiantReviewed on 11/19/2013 Jessica R
Linda is a wonderful, caring person and will make sure you have a lovely wedding ceremony. She worked with my fiancé and I on making sure our ceremony was tailored to our beliefs, but felt reverent. She is extremely professional and sends you a copy of the ceremony well before your wedding day. If you need to make any changes she immediately makes note of it and is extremely accommodating. The Irish blessing she had at the end of our ceremony was used in my cousin's wedding and he was so taken aback she knew of it. Little touches like that really help make for a special wedding.
Perfect ceremonyReviewed on 8/05/2013 Stephanie P
Linda is so great. I live in Dallas so it was hard to get to Austin during her business hours but she was ALWAYS accommodating. She skyped with my husband and I so we could save a trip. Our vows were beautiful, my husband could hardly speak be was so overwhelmed with emotion. Linda really takes the time to get to know you and knows just the right things to say.

I officiated my first wedding in 2006, and thus began my love affair with weddings! Why do I love weddings? Let me count the ways - I delight in learning a couple's love story and creating a ceremony that expresses that love in every word. I enjoy meeting the families and the wedding party. Feeling the joy and love that the guests bring with them, experiencing the happiness of the occasion, and being part of the couple's wedding day memories makes my heart sing! What can I say? I am thoroughly smitten with weddings!
