“We appreciated the opportunity we had to work with Lisa regarding our wedding ceremony. We found Lisa to be pleasant, prompt, and reliable throughout the process of our planning and then again on our wedding day.Lisa was articulate in letting us know what our options were prior to the wedding, and she worked in a collaborative way that ensured our ideas were incorporated into the ceremony. Ultimately, she delivered the message that we wished to share on our wedding day. We were happy to have had the chance to work with Lisa.” Aug 2012
“From the first time we met with Lisa we felt comfortable and that our wedding ceremony was in good hands. She took the time to listen to what we wanted and helped us incorporate into the ceremony. She was always available if we had any questions or concerns. We wanted a simple and beautiful ceremony that reflected who we are and she did a beautiful job providing that for us.
Thank you Lisa for doing such a wonderful job.”

Pastor Lisa was wonderful!!!
At the very last minute my officiant told me he could no longer come to my wedding due to health reasons. Since our wedding was only 2 weeks ahead, I understandably started panicking! Our wedding coordinator gave us Lisa’s name and I called her instantly. She was so understanding and didn’t make me feel at all that what I was asking was unachievable or too last minute. She worked with our coordinator and did everything she could to fit us in to her busy schedule (as she had prior arrangements with another wedding party on the same day)! She is very compassionate, kind and does whatever she can to help make your day special. I would definitely recommend her to anyone!
In looking for a wedding minister in the Brainerd area, we were looking for someone who is caring and spiritual and that we could connect with on a personal level. A must have was someone who could also conduct a meaningful ceremony, one that not only included all the necessary elements, but left room for the addition of our own personal and special sentiments to one another. Lisa fits that profile perfectly. She was willing to meet well beforehand, listen to our thoughts and concerns, and offered numerous options and ideas for making the ceremony meaningful, modern and tailor-made. She was also open to having a rehearsal and was just the person to make the whole experience stress-free. And…she is not only a childrens’ pastor and conducts womens’ self-esteem seminars, but has also written a book on how to have a successful marriage. …..thank you, Lisa, for delivering us a most wonderful ceremony experience!
Ann and I would like to take a minute and express how totally impressed we were with every aspect of your service, as pastor of one of the most important times of our lives.
Starting with our pre meeting where you spent a great deal of time and patience explaining all the aspects of the ceremony, giving recommendations and then sitting back while we decided what would be best for us.
At the ceremony we were a little nervous, as one might expect, and you were very comforting. Your delivery was flawless. Once the ceremony was over you made sure all the little details were properly executed. You had the witnesses sign the marriage licensed and then you took it with and sent it in for us. All of this was accomplished in coordination with the photographer taking pictures and Ann and I rejoicing with our family.
Thank you again for making this day a huge success.
Rick & Ann
