Are you looking for a minister to celebrate your wedding but you don't belong to a church? Are you divorced and can't find a church that will marry you? Do you dream of a wedding outside but can't find anyone who is willing to accommodate your dreams? I am here to help you!

I am the Pastor of a small country church in Galway, New York. I will provide you with an exceptional, joyous, personal, and memorable ceremony.

I specialize in writing unique and personal ceremonies designed specifically for you.

Whatever your style, from the traditional to the most unusual - and everything in between, I will help you create a memorable ceremony that fits you perfectly. Everything you need will be taken care of for you in an organized, efficient and stress-free way.

Your wedding day will be the beginning of a new and wonderful life together. Your wedding ceremony is the central event in all the happiness and celebration that surrounds your wedding. Your ceremony will be a large part of all your wedding plans. Your wedding will probably be the biggest and most costly event of your lifetime. I'm sure you would like it be a personal and memorable expression of your love for one another. Every detail of your wedding ceremony including your wedding vows, your readings and the music should be just as you want it to be. Your ceremony should reflect your commitment to each other and it should also be a reflection of your personal tastes. I will help you plan a great ceremony that will be a part of your perfect wedding day. I can help you to have an elegant and romantic ceremony or a fun, laid-back ceremony. Your wedding ceremony is a reflection of the feelings that you and your partner have for each other as well as your hopes and dreams for the future. My goal is to give you a wedding ceremony you can treasure for the rest of your life.

Reverend Lyon is fantastic! She is very flexible and dedicated to her service. She worked with us to make sure our ceremony was unique to us and reflected our relationship. She made our guests laugh and enjoy the ceremony...we are very happy she officiated our ceremony.

Rev. Wendy Lyons was our officiant on our wedding day. After having some troubles with our first choice, not only was it very last minute, weeks before our big day, but Rev Lyons was extremely grateful in helping us, and performing our ceremony. She's very kind, and helpful. She made our ceremony very memorable, and all of our guests commented on how special our ceremony was for the day. I highly recommend her, for any occasion !

Wendy Lyon preformed our wedding Ceremony at our wedding location in Lake George. She was easy to work with and we liked that her website allowed us to choose options for our ceremony. Wendy was also accomodating when I wanted to use different wording than was on her site. We worked out the ceremony wording through e-mail and she was great to work with.

Wendy also was present at the rehearsal which was definately needed. She guided us through how we were to walk down the aisle and what was to come.

She handed us a temporary marraige certificate right after completing the ceremony(so we could display it) and filled out and sent all legal paperwork quickly as we received our marriage certificate in the mail the next week.

I would suggest using Wendy for your officiant.
