Welcome to Rev. Lincoln Weddings and beautiful SouthWest Florida! I am a classically ordained minister with a focus on joyous weddings in God's natural settings: beach, boat, country club, indoors or outdoors. My focus is on making your day blessed by God, easy in planning, rich in joy, and catered to you.



If requested I am glad to be your full-service wedding planner. As an experienced and well-connected professional, I am able to pull together the music, photography, florist and other needs within your budget so there is no legwork for you, other than to arrive here for your wedding day.



Some Background on Myself:

--Over 80 beautiful tropical weddings performed in since 2011.

--Director and Chief Chaplain of Community Chaplaincy of SWFL, since 2010.

--Hospice Chaplain 3 Years (Hope Hospice and Community Services)

--Associate Preacher & Youth Minister 4 years (Cypress Lake Presbyterian- FL, Church of The Savior-PA)

--College Chaplain 7 years (IVCF at: Case Western Reserve U, John Carroll U, Art institute of Pittsburgh)

--Ordained Minister since 2006, Episcopal priest since 2009 (Province of St. Peter, Mission of St. Mark, CEEC)

--Mdiv: Trinity Episcopal School of Ministry, Dip-CS: Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, BA: College of Wooster



In short, I am a people-person minister with the background, efficiency and passion for making your day meaningful to you and your family, poetically, humorously, joyfully, and spiritually. I design my ceremonies to capture who you are. Check out the comments in the reviews--they explain my style best.
I make the process simple, seamless, fitting and complete. I provide consultations by phone, email and in person as needed; then I provide forms that help you pick out (or create) your vows and help me cater the service to your wishes; I offer optional add-on ceremonies-- thus make the day uniquely yours in every way. I remain in touch throughout, making sure you know the details are covered. I will run a wedding rehearsal at your request (or work with the wedding coordinator if you have one) and of course the ceremony itself. My step-by-step procedure anticipates most everything that needs to be handled for your wedding, at the level you want it handled. The end result is you can enjoy your wedding day and the weeks leading up to it. It is my honor to be your wedding minister if you so choose, and look forward to helping make your wedding day perfect, happy, holy and true to you. Blessings, Rev. Allen Lincoln For further information and pricing, please go to: http://revlincolnweddings.com Read less

The wedding ceremony with Rev. Lincoln was absolutely beautiful; warm, sweet, funny, moving... we both agreed that it was everything we could have wanted and more, and we wouldn't have done anything different. We got married on Ft. Myers Beach with just two friends and Rev. Lincoln. Our conversations over the phone and emails (we were coming from Colorado) made it very easy to tailor the ceremony to our tastes. He also offered to set up the photographer and florist, or to just give us suggestions. The photographer, Tom Shane, was very good at what he did, easy to work with, unobtrusive during the ceremony, and had a lot of fun ideas. Rev. Allen suggested Santini Floral, and they also did a fantastic job on short notice.

I think every day of some of the special words of advice Rev. Allen gave us. Thank you for the wonderful ceremony, you helped make that day very special!

Just a quick back story on our wedding: my wife and I live in Connecticut, but were determined to have a Florida wedding. With that came the need to plan the entire wedding almost entirely via emails, internet searches and phone calls. At every stage of the process from the initial contact all the way through the wrap up after the big day, Rev. Lincoln was there helping us along the way. He also has a great network of contacts where we were able to find a great DJ through him as well.

Beyond just helping us with the logistics of our big day, Rev. Lincoln made our ceremony the best part of our whole wedding. Beyond the cheers, laughs and joyful tears; the nuptials I shared with my wife were truly moving. We are very thankful that we picked Rev. Lincoln for our wedding and would recommend him in a heartbeat to anyone in the Ft. Myers/Naples area.

Thank you Paul. A minister couldn't ask for a bigger honor than to read something like that! Not that you said you LIKED what I said... hmm, maybe that's a little more cryptic than i like! The two of you are wonderful folk. Blessings to you all the days of your life.

Reverend Lincoln gave one of the best, funniest, and touching sermons at our wedding. He met with us twice before the wedding to get to know us and really personalized it for us. The guests were laughing, crying, and everything in between, except being bored. It was a very touching and memorable ceremony and we were very glad to have chosen Rev. Lincoln to officiate.

It was such a relief to have found Rev. Lincoln! Planning an out-of-town wedding wasn't always easy, but he made the rehearsal/ceremony experience smooth and meaningful. His willingness to meet with us months beforehand to discuss our vision and relationship was an added bonus. I'd recommend RL to anyone looking for a great leader on their special day!

Rev. Lincoln was exactly what we were looking for. We were married in Florida in April 2014 and we only spoke over the phone and via email up until we met him at our rehearsal. He helped us with everything and could have helped with even more (i.e. Dj). We described ourselves and what type of wedding we wanted and he came through. Our guests said how much they enjoyed the ceremony. I would recommend him with pleasure.
