  • Rev. Melanie was absolutely amazing!! From start to finish, she answered all the questions she had quickly and kindly. She made our day absolutely perfect for us. She gave me wedding resources and even a keepsake binder. Not to mention, she was so sweet and warm in person. Thank you again!!

  • Reverend Melanie was just the perfect match for our oh-so quickly planned wedding. We didn't need anything grand so our original plan was a Saturday afternoon with parents and grandparents present. We picked a date just about 2 months in advance. Just about 10 guests. Thankfully we decided on Rev. Melanie because out of our price range, she did not have a guest limit for the package we chose. She also had in the package a binder as a keepsake with a script of the wedding. Of course as planning went on, the guest count got larger. She didn't mind! Not one bit. I got quick responses to any questions I had and she made it so easy. I also give her major props for being so patient the day of. Family was late to arrive and she went with it. Her husband played the ceremony music on a sound system they brought with them. She also took care of mailing the marriage certificate back to the state and had a short guide of what to do should you wish to change your name in our keepsake binder. :)

  • Thanks to Rev. Melanie who was a pleasure to work with. We were a bit nervous as had small ceremony which was prepared in 3 days only and she helped to make it official and calm. It was a great day! Rev. Melanie is a very energetic, kind, professional and well-spoken person. She offered some good ideas on photos as well. I would definitely recommend her as an officiant.

  • Rev Melanie did a wonderful job officiating our ceremony. She was always very responsive to email, provided samples to help write the ceremony, edited the ceremony wording ahead of time, and did a wonderful job the day of. I was very happy to have her as our officiant and thought she did a great job. After the ceremony she left us with a keepsake binder with a copy of our ceremony and our wedding certificate. She promptly mailed in the necessary forms to the courthouse as we were able to get our official papers within two weeks or so. Before hiring Rev Melanie I researched many officiants, none of them were even close in value. Rev. Melanie truly embodied her slogan of your day, your way. She is kind, always responded within 24 hours, was very flexible, has a great public speaking voice, and did exactly as asked. Thanks Rev Melanie for helping to make our wedding very special!

  • Rev. Melanie was perfect in every way. Our guests are still talking about how beautiful the ceremony was and how it was so thoughtful and great how she included a family ceremony to include my daughter in the joining of our families. I can't say enough how perfect Rev. Melanie made our day! She is definatly 2 thumbs up and more!!

  • I cannot even begin to say enough wonderful things about Reverend Melanie. From the first email to her until after our wedding ceremony she was very attentive and helpful. She allowed us to customize the ceremony to best fit our needs and provided all the information we needed. Email responses were quick and I never had to wait to hear back from her on anything. Her service was very personal and she helped calm this jittery bride down every time we spoke. She made our wedding ceremony an incredibly special event and I can't imagine it being as great as it was without her.

  • Unfortunately, one of the most important vendors for our wedding was a tremendous disappointment. Rev. Melanie will only meet with you at one of two possible locations on the day that is good for her - for people that work, this is a rude inconvenience, especially when you are trying to interview people to be hired for your wedding. When we did meet with her, I thought she was very nice and liked that she was going to help me create our own ceremony - which I did. Problems arose however, when I never heard back from her after that, and with less than two weeks before my wedding, I called her only to find out she had lost all her notes and had no recollection of our meeting. I had to sit down and type up our ceremony again, this time by myself with less than two weeks to go before we were married. The day of my wedding she was bossy to my family members and made two mistakes while delivering our ceremony. When my parents handed her a check for final payment she had the... Read more

  • When my Husband And i first met Rev Melanie she seemed like such a great person to work with. As our planning went on she took a long time to respond to my emails. I had to email her serveral times before i would get a response from her. when we suggested things that we wanted to have done for our wedding she discouraged us from doing so. We wanted to have a special song played for our sand pouring ceremony and she told us no we could not do that. we did not get our final copy of our ceremony until the wek of our wedding and i had emailed her this 2 months before our wedding. she showed up for our rehearsal and rushed us to do this. then our son who is only 4 and was the ring bearer did not want to walk down the aisle at rehearsal and she said to us not to even have him then. on our wedding day she showed up and right away complained about how she was sick and did not feel good. She rushed us through the ceremony. When reading our ceremony she read through it so quickly she just wanted... Read more

    responded with the following comments.

    Dear Sue - I am sorry you were disappointed with my services. Unfortunately, I was Very ill for your rehearsal and wedding and apologize if it appeared that I was not my usual bubbly self - but I did the best that I could :-( Regarding the final ceremony - as I find that a lot of changes are made in the last few weeks (and it is the ceremony you have chosen) there are no surprises regarding the final formatting - so getting it to you a week beforehand is my standard protocol. My only suggestion regarding your 4 y/o son (as the ring bearer) was not to push the issue and if he wanted to walk - that was great - otherwise not to force him to ?!?!? I did attempt to address your numerous e-mails in a timely and polite manner and again apologize if you were displeased... Best wishes in your future married life - Rev. Melanie

  • Rev. Melanie was very nice to work with and, from the research i did prior to hiring her, she is the most reasonably priced. She made our ceremony exactly what we wanted and supported us with ideas when we decided to write our own vows.

  • Melanie did an absolutely fantastic job. We had a small, intimate ceremony and she worked with us to make it completely unique. Neither my husband or I are religious, but Melanie worked with us to create a meaningul secular ceremony that fit us perfectly. On the day of our wedding, she had 2 other ceremonies to officiate, but not once did we feel that we were being rushed through our event. She even took time afterwards to talk with us and wish us well before heading off to the next lucky couple. She answered emails very quickly and was extremely attentive during phone conversations, answering all of our questions and providing guidance where needed. I would definitely recommend Melanie to others.

  • Overall, Rev. Melanie did an excellent job officiating our ceremony. She worked with us to create a customized ceremony and had some great suggestions as to how to include our guests. The only suggestion that I have to improve service would be to arrive to the ceremony site a few minutes earlier to meet both the bride and groom prior to the ceremony.
