  • Melinda was absolutely perfect for our last-minute elopement in Piedmont Park! We had to cancel our original wedding plans because of Covid-19, but decided to get married spur-of-the-moment. We contacted Melinda through the form on her website on Wednesday night, requesting the wedding be the following Monday. We woke up to a response from her Thursday morning, and we spoke with her on the phone after picking up the marriage license. She was so accommodating, encouraging, and flexible. We didn’t have many ideas, so she walked us through a possible ceremony, making sure we knew that we could add or change anything to personalize it. She gave us her phone number and email and was very responsive throughout the next few days as we planned the details. The day of the wedding, she showed up at the spot we had picked ahead of time, and she was very patient with our last-minute running around! Her words during the ceremony could not have been more perfect. They were thoughtful, inspiring, w... Read more

  • Melinda did both our counseling before our wedding as well as the officiant duties on the day of the wedding. The counseling sessions were very valuable and both my wife and I felt comfortable opening up to Melinda. We often had to discuss private and sometimes uncomfortable topics in preparation for a life together, and she made that process enjoyable and completely non-judgemental. For the day-of, Melinda provided us with dozens of samples for all of the different parts of the ceremony and helped us to build a ceremony that was uniquely ours, using the words that resonated the most with us. She did a wonderful job in every way and I couldn't be happier that we picked her to be a part of such a special day. Thank you so much Melinda!

  • COVID did not stop us from having our perfect wedding on 8.30.2020. Min. Melinda delivered the most beautiful and heartfelt ceremony that we will forever hold in our memories. She won our hearts in our initial conversation. Super professional and full of great ideas and very experienced with any type of service you'd like for your special day. Our guests loved her as well. We especially liked our sand ceremony with the kids and the handfasting text. She is A++ in our book!

  • Whether traditional or unconventional, Minister Melinda is by far the best choice when looking for an officiant! Her grace, charisma, and honesty made our pre-marital counseling and ceremony impactful and way less stressful. Melinda's approach to crafting a ceremony that fits you was so comforting. In pre-marital counseling, she pushed us to dig deeper into our purpose together, even for a couple in our seventh year of commitment. We've already begun recommending her to our closes friends and hope you'll consider her as well for the entire martial process too! P.S. Hopefully, she'll lead our vow renewal in the future!

  • Melinda brought a sense of comfort that we desperately needed for our wedding day. With all the moving parts and scheduling required for such an event, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic, Melinda made sure we were taken care of and had absolutely no stress when planning the ceremony. She was responsive, courteous, and helped us draft our wedding script (which we had no idea how to even start!). On top of that, she made sure you could feel the love in the room and made sure all our paperwork with the courts was handled afterwards. I recommend Melinda a thousand times over for your big day!!

  • Melinda was absolutely amazing from beginning to end. She was warm and had amazing communication. Covid19 really threw our plans off, but she was right there along the way, working with us through all of the changes. We ultimately had a small wedding and she took us through everything step by step. She had options ranging from very traditional to very unique. The ceremony was literally perfect! She covered everything you would want or need. She was also punctual and extremely efficient. We definitely recommend her services for your special day!

  • My mother got married almost 2 years ago and Min Melinda married them. She was so professional and very nice that my wife and I wanted to use her services. Working with her was so great because she was patient, kind, and helped us pick the perfect location (Due to the pandemic our original plans didn’t work out). She gave encouraging words and I can’t wait to have her come to our anniversary party as well as perform our renewals when the time comes.

  • My husband and I wanted to get married, due to the pandemic the courthouse is doing limited ceremonies. Melinda Guess came to our rescue! Melinda Guess exemplified professionalism and care for our union. Sometimes you just need someone to listen and she did just that and gave us some good advice. I would definitely refer her to other couples for her services. Thanks Melinda from the Partridges💜
