We are so happy that Reverend Linney officiated our wedding. The wedding was actually planned quite quickly (in one week); George was incredibly flexible, allowing us to meet with him when it worked with our schedule. He gave us choices for the ceremony, but also offered his advice (which was incredibly helpful to a rather frazzled couple several days prior to the big day). During the wedding ceremony, his carefully crafted words reflected what we wanted and provided the perfect structure. When our 5-year-old flower girl sped down the aisle dropping petals so quickly that people barely noticed her, George leaned down and whispered to her that she should do it one more time, a little bit slower – she did, and it was the hit of the night. George is calm and relatable, but also has a powerful presence. We are very lucky to have found George! Julie C.
When we began to plan our wedding ceremony, I knew there was no one I would rather have officiate than George Linney. He helped us through every step; from customizing the ceremony to fit our unique personalities, to quickly helping get our entire wedding party through the rehearsal (and making sure I felt comfortable and prepared for the next day), to making sure our ceremony was incredibly personal. George made sure that my husband and I felt comfortable and prepared for the day. We had his support from the moment we asked him to be our officiant through to our wedding day. Even now, we take comfort knowing that he is still around for counseling and support if we need him. We highly recommend George for your wedding. Caitlin F.
I am pretty sure picking George as our officiant was the first decision my wife made when we began wedding planning. Coming from different church experiences, I was a bit nervous about putting together a ceremony that we would both be comfortable with and feel happy about. Meeting with George to plan our ceremony was a wonderful experience. He took time to listen to both of us, explain different traditions, and take our comfort level into consideration. In the end, he planned and put together a beautiful ceremony that really captured both of our preferences and blended them together in a seamless fashion. I could not be happier with how our ceremony came together and the encouragement George gave us along the way. Chris F.
Rev. Linney officiated our wedding in San Francisco, CA. He also provided pre-marital counseling sessions. I didn’t know what to expect with the counseling sessions. My only thought was that they would probably feel a little forced. That was not the case at all. They were real, genuine, and helped my (now) husband and me pull everything together in terms of things we had talked about, and things we had just implicitly thought. I enjoyed the counseling sessions, and also how Rev. Linney officiated our wedding. It was a beautiful ceremony, and our families just loved meeting him and getting to know him. Since the wedding, we’ve had a couple counseling sessions with Rev. Linney. Not because things were “wrong,” but because we are new to this marriage thing and just wanted to talk with someone about where we are. They were great sessions and Rev. Linney provided a listening ear and wonderful perspective. I recommend him for counseling and wedding officiating. Valerie R.
