LUTS suggestions

Looking for a LUT that would fit a funeral or memorial video I’m currently working on right now. Any suggestions?

Without giving us a peek into some shots or knowhow of how it's shot, on what camera etc it's a bit hard to give advice.

For a memorial film I'd say go grade it without a lut. Keep it natural and respectful. No crazy saturation or high contrast looks. Give it a bit of sepia warmth and overall smoothness.

A tasteful vignette is nice. I would also lean towards a mild Glow filter on everything, kind of a ProMist look.

Keep the contrast soft, lift up the shadows to keep everything light and airy. Don't let any saturated colours stand out too much. Could be a rare case for the reverse vignette where the edges fade off to white instead of get darker.
