  • My husband and I were married by Rabbi Melinda Bernstein on March 10. She is simply wonderful. She has a kind, beautiful soul. She worked with us in person and through phone and email to make our vision of our wedding ceremony come to life. She wrote a lovely ceremony and performed the ceremony beautifully. We both have very hectic schedules, and Rabbi Melinda was so accommodating and understanding. She is incredibly easy to work with and her goal was to make sure she carried out our vision. I could not have asked for a better person to marry us. I wholeheartedly recommend Rabbi Melinda.

  • My name is Vicki and my husband and I attended a wedding where Rabbi Melinda performed the service. When she first approached, it was if a beaitiful light was seen. The ceremony was wonderful as her words were from her heart and not read from prepared writings. It felt like she was part of the wedding as opposed to someone just officiating. I was so proud to see such a beautiful, kind a x well spoken woman be the rabbi.

    Vicki, it's always an honor to serve as wedding officiant for couples who seek a light hearted Rabbi. It's a bigger honor to receive your dear words of reflection. Thank you Vicki from within my heart of hearts!

  • Melinda performed the wedding ceremony for my wife and I in Riviera Maya, Mexico and did a fantastic job. Melinda was always very responsive to messages, flexible throughout the planning process, and allowed us to customize our ceremony to our liking. Melinda was warm, friendly, and professional and did an outstanding job. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a wedding officiant.

  • Melinda was professional, funny and flexible. We found her online and immediately knew she was perfect for us. We had arranged to have a very small service on the beach in Del Ray. Because we live in New York she also sent me information of restaurants, florists in the area which was helpful. We had many texts which she always responded to in a timely manner and then had a phone conversation when the time was right. When we had to change the venue from the beach to the hospital chapel due to an illness with my father in law she was there bright and early with chocolates in hand. Everyone thought she was funny and professional and it was just what we had hoped for. We highly recommend Melinda. Scott and Anna Rose Lieberman

    It was my honor to hold sacred space in Jerry's healing and in joy of your wedding ceremony. Your family rocked it in the humor department and it was fun fuel for the moment at hand of which I am so glad you embraced it all with grace. God bless!!!

  • Melinda was our officiant and we were very happy with our wedding ceremony. We weren't really sure where to start when we first met with Melinda, and she took control and walked us right through the ceremony planning, giving us plenty of options to figure out what we wanted. She was flexible with helping us arrange the ceremony words to our liking as we tweaked things here and there and everything turned out just great. On the day of the wedding, she wore a beautiful white suit and had everything neatly organized on her tablet, so it really looked professional as well. The ceremony went flawlessly and everyone was just so touched with how intimate and beautiful it was. Let me also point out that we are not religious and that Melinda calls herself a "free-flowing Rabbi" so she worked out perfectly, even though we did not have a religious ceremony. Highly recommend her!

    So touched to read your beautiful words Stacey. It was my honor to officiate and witness the beauty of you and Dustin! In beauty and blessings, Melinda

  • I have to give Rabbi Melinda 5 stars! She was kind and considerate. She even made me a beautiful Chuppa in a flash because the venue I was using didn't have any (and neither did I). She showed up promptly and ready to say the most beautiful words to my guests. She also spent a lot of time in the weeks before the wedding askingme what type of ceremony that I wanted and what kind of Ketuba I wanted. She even met with my parents one night to include them in the process. Thank you Rabbi Melinda! Amy Edelman- Caputo

    Lisa, I adore your spirit and loved the weaving of love into your sweet elopement ceremony with you and Shannon. May God bless you both always and in all ways! My best, Melinda
