For over 30 years Rev. Lindbeck has been performing interfaith, same-faith, non-religious, multi-cultural, civil and spiritual ceremonies along the California Central Coast. She has performed over 900 ceremonies and is considered one of the most personal ministers in her profession. She loves working with people of all walks of life and every belief system.

To create your personal and fullly customized ceremony that is so suited to you, it wouldn't fit any other couple, she meets with you for three to four consultations to come to know you as completely as she can. She brings out who you truly are as an individual and who you are for each other as a couple. She talks with you about your families, your friends, your dreams and your future. If there are any delicate issues that would or could impact your wedding day, she makes sure she is informed and is skilled at handling them successfully on your big day. Her sensitivity and responsibility strike a trustworthy balance you can rely on without question.

She provides for you a wedding packet containing information and ideas on ceremony, so many you can't use them all, sample vows, ring vows, how to obtain your license, premaritial information, and everything you need to get started.

If you want to write your own vows, copy and paste, or simple choose one, she helps you with them until you are confident and excited about them. In concert with your ideas, she creates your ceremony as your personal celebration to make it an extraordinary experience for you, your family and your friends, you'll treasure for a lifetime.

She offers a non-obligatory interview to see if the three of you would work well together. To learn more about her, you may visit her website at www.weddingsantabarbara.com. She is also commented about on the Santa Barbara Wedding Guide and Yelp. She has countless references from her brides who have come from all over the world as well as endorsements from the professionals she works with to make your day seamless and beautiful beyond your expectations.

This work is her life's purpose and her passion is to leave the light of eternal love in your life and your marriage.

I feel so fortunate that me and my fiancé got to work with Miriam. I couldn’t have wished for a more engaged, experienced and fun wedding officiant. First of all, Miriam really took the time to get to know us. We live in different states, so we scheduled several video conversations via Skype. During these calls my fiancé and I spoke about our families, our relationship with each other, and what was important to us in a ceremony. With the help of these conversations, Miriam created a unique and personalized ceremony that was very meaningful to us and that we were very comfortable with. Sure enough, our wedding day was just perfect, with the heartfelt ceremony being its central part. Our guests were very moved by the ceremony, and we felt very connected with our guests and with Miriam. Many guests commented later on how much they appreciated the ceremony; some said it was the best they’d witnessed! I should add that Miriam has a great speaking style: she speaks with confidence and poise but also with kindness. She has great presence and naturally draws the attention of an audience. I felt very supported by her throughout the ceremony and especially when we were saying our vows. Once again, I feel so lucky we got to work with Miriam. The ceremony is the heart of a wedding, and I’m so thankful ours turned out beautifully. To all the brides and grooms out there looking for a wedding officiant: look no further and just call Miriam!

Miriam was really special to work with. She took so much time getting to know us and our families and it really showed when she spoke during the ceremony. She guided us through the wedding ceremony process and vows and was easy to work with when we had our ideas of what we wanted included. She really wanted the ceremony to reflect our personalities and ideas of commitment - a true customized experience. Many of our guests said she was one of the best officiants they've ever heard. I'm so glad I didn't just have a friend do it, and instead picked a professional who was able to give such an important moment its true relevance.

I instantly liked Miriam when I rang to make our first appointment. Fortunately she was available to work with us. Miriam is warm, funny and inspiring..and clearly loves what she does! She met with us several times and also spent time with our family to gain insights into who we are individually and as a couple. Miriam asked us to tell our stories and simply took notes...the finished ceremony was amazing! Touching, heartfelt and so very meaningful. I have never attended a wedding where guests actually applauded during the service! Her words and presence drew everyone into our story. I had so many guests tell me they felt special, and part of our ceremony - not simply a captive audience waiting for the open bar! Give Miriam a ring and see if she is right for you!

Miriam is absolutely amazing. So much so that she married us twice; once about 10 years ago and then again last year. She spends time getting to know you as a couple and really tailors the ceremony to the two of you. My father was very luke warm about the idea of a non religious ceremony, but after seeing the ceremony that Miriam put together for us, his mind was changed and he realized that what she created fit us perfectly.

I cannot say enough nice things about Miriam. She was referred to me by another vendor and from our first phone call I knew she was the right one to marry us. When we met in person for the first time, she really took the time to get to know us and made us feel so comfortable. By the end of the meeting, I felt like I had known her for years. Then, even after we agreed to have her officiate our wedding, she continued to spend a lot of time getting to know us and writing our ceremony. She came to our rehearsal dinner and took the time to get to know all of our friends and family and even saved the day making an emergency run back to the hotel when we realized we had forgotten the gifts for our wedding party. Then, when our wedding day came she blew me away. The words she had prepared still give me chills when I read them. I could not believe that she had gotten to know us so well in such a short amount of time. It was so personal and perfect I could not have asked for anything more. All of our guests still talk about how amazing it was. I could not recommend anyone more!

We absolutely loved working with Miriam! We will remember our special day forever and cannot imagine anyone better to have officiated the ceremony for us. Miriam was incredibly responsive, flexible to set up 'skype' visits with us since we lived in a different state, and really connected with us on our specific requests for our ceremony. She was open to our suggestions, and put in a truly genuine effort to make sure it was a ceremony tailored for our specific taste/viewpoint. She told our story beautifully, and made it a perfect day! Thank you, Miriam!!

Miriam made me feel so special on my wedding day. The words she chose to use and the way she connected with each person in my family and bridal party made my special day that much more special. Miriam meets with you about 3-4 times throughout the process. The first meeting she gets to know you and your significant other. After that she connects with you a couple of times regarding how you want the ceremony to be designed and of coarse your vows. We live in San Diego and got married in Santa Barbara so i was a little nervous that we wouldn't be able to meet as much as she wanted but we used skype and she made herself very available through email. SHe is more on the expensive side but worth it 100%. I wouldn't change anything she did and i truly believe that the officiant is the most important part of the wedding. It is important that you connect with your officiant since they are the ones that are initiating your marriage for the rest of your life. I recommend Miriam 100%. All of my family and friends have been talking about how awesome she was and how different our ceremony was compared to others they have been to. 5 star vendor for sure!

Finding the right person to officiate your wedding is one of the most important elements of the wedding process and I'm really glad that we chose Miriam. She did an amazing job! Took the time to get to know us which made for a very personal ceremony (our guests were in tears). Our day would not have been the same without her!

Miriam was amazing! I was very hesitant to even have an officiant as my husband and I are not practicing a specific religion. Although, after talking with several officiants Miriam immediately put me at ease. She met with my husband and I at least three times before the wedding getting to know us, our story and what we wanted in life. She came from an extremely genuine place. I always felt she was 110% there for us in any conversations, the day before the wedding and at the ceremony. We customized our ceremony and Miriam gave us wonderful tributes based on the information she had learned about us. Her value was amazing. Out of everything I paid for on a budget wedding I really felt she was the best value of everything. Although, you would never know that based on the time, energy and quality of work she delivered. She is on the more spiritual side, which was in line with my husband and I, but that was how we built our ceremony. 5 stars. Thank you Miriam! Love, Rissa & Alex
