We worked with Melanie for our ceremony and couldn't be more happy with how it turned out! Planning our ceremony was a bit stressful since we were trying to balance tradition while making it something that was unique and special to us. Melanie had many great ideas, was very flexible, and overall extremely helpful! For the ceremony itself, she did a great job with keeping the two of us calm while standing in front of a crowd (this was something we were very nervous about). The thing that impressed us the most how well everything was coordinated and came together. She connected with all the key players in our ceremony (musicians, readers, photographers, parents, etc.) and the whole thing from start to finish went off without a hitch! Many of our guests complimented how much they enjoyed our ceremony and how well she did! Highly recommend Tie The Knot Ceremonies!

Tie the Knot Wedding Ceremonies is truly fantastic. We had the pleasure of working with Anna, and I cannot say enough great things about working with her. She is awesome! From the beginning, it was important to us to find an officiant who could understand how we envisioned our ceremony, because we are a non-religious/non-traditional couple with no interest in the standard, cookie-cutter traditions. We were looking for a ceremony that was about who we are together, and our uniqueness that shapes our bond. A ceremony made for our expectations, not the guests'.

We definitely found this in Tie the Knot & Anna was very open-minded about our plans and really, truly listened to our ideas and suggestions. She helped us craft and customize our ceremony to reflect our fun personalities, our nerdy tendencies, and the love we share. She also took the time to get to know who we both were before we met and who we are today. Even though we had only just met in the months leading up to the ceremony, I felt like Anna really knew us and understood us as though she had known us for longer.

The day of the wedding was the best ever! During the rehearsal, Anna was completely prepared and made sure each person in our wedding party knew what to do. One of the groomsmen was a bit late to practice, and he was able to pick up exactly what was going on because Anna was so on top of things. Not going to lie, I was nervous during the rehearsal because this is when all the pieces of the puzzle start coming together. But after we wrapped up, I was completely at ease and confident the day of would be excellent. And it was! Everything went so smoothly, that it felt like just another rehearsal run-through, and then I realized, "Oh, wait, this is actually happening now!" And it was fun. Sooo much fun! I couldn't have envisioned a more perfect wedding. And all of our guests complimented us on how unique our ceremony was and how it was so 'us.' We totally recommend these guys!

Grant & Melanie,

Thanks so much for being a part of our day. Upon first meeting you, Alex and I knew we wanted to work with you. You are both so easy-going and professional that we just felt at ease with you. We had fun from the beginning to the end! You guys are a great team. Grant, you did a GREAT job with the ceremony-guests were asking about you all evening and commenting how great you were! Mel, it meant so much to us that you were able to join in our celebration.

Thanks again from the bottom of our hearts for such a great job!

Sincerely,

Audrey and Alex

I was introduced to Melanie by a friend of mine. My now husband and I met Melanie at a local coffee shop and from our "Hellos" we knew Melanie was the one that we wanted to share in our special day!

Melanie was there to help us make our ceremony exactly what we wanted. We spent numerous hours going over the wording, readings and flow of the ceremony. Melanie even helped Nick and I tweak our vows so they would be exactly who we are.

Melanie really got to know us and our interests. We were going to be doing a "sand ceremony" however when Melanie found out about our love for the outdoors she mentioned a "tree ceremony" where we could combine my parents and his parents soil from their houses to plant a tree at our home. We jumped at this because it had US written all over it!

Rehearsal night came and Melanie took charge so I wouldn't have to worry. She made sure everyone knew what they were to be doing and when. We even received a copy of our wedding ceremony to look back at when we wanted!

Wedding day - went without a hitch.... well at least with Melanie's help (helping even with last minute decorations!!) I was able to keep going with the flow. At the end of the day, I couldn't ask for any more because Melanie exceeded my expectations and I plan on telling everyone I know looking for an officiant to talk with Melanie!!

Thank you so much Melanie, for EVERYTHING!!!

What can I say about Melanie, she was amazing. Melanie made the whole wedding party feel comfortable at the rehearsal, and got along great with the family. She was very quick to respond to my emails, and made the whole ceremony planning process completely stress-free for me. She was funny, sweet, and very good at what she does! I would recommend her any day!

We had Melanie as our wedding officiant for our big day, and we are so happy we did!! Melanie has a personality that fit perfectly with ours and our families. She's funny, sweet, and made the whole ceremony process go very smoothly. She returned all of my emails in a very timely manner, and created a beautiful ceremony for us. I would definitely recommend using her as your wedding officiant!

We had the pleasure of working with Melanie for our Ceremony are so happy that we met her. She did a wonderful job helping us prepare for our big day and even helped write our vows for us. She was flexible and very professional and we would highly recommend using Melanie and Tie the Knot Wedding Ceremonies. I would also like to note that she gave me a great tip on the day of our ceremony. Before it began, she pulled me aside and told me to clear my throat if I feel like tearing up. She said it would relax my face muscles and help me get through it. So as my bride walked down the aisle, sure enough I started getting that feeling and I cleared my throat. Worked wonders! Thanks Melanie.

Melanie was so easy to work with and made our ceremony everything we had hoped for. It was fun, personal and very 'us'. She was extremely professional and flexible and offered words of advice and tips for getting everything together along the way. I would recommend Melanie and Grant to friend and family in a heart beat!

It has been a week since our wedding, and I continue to gush over just how beautiful our ceremony was. From our first conversation last year, I knew this was the start of something magical. Sure, our wedding was going to be great (it was our wedding, after all), but I just got the sense that Melanie cared, and was going to make it beautiful. Over the next few months she took the time to learn to talk us through the process, and help us find readings that worked well with our personalities (she also found a musician PERFECT for the event). She talked to us and learned about us and our relationship, and our ceremony was better than I had even hoped for. It was personalized to the word and was, in essence, a 20 minute reflection of who we are and what our relationship means to us. Melanie's joy in working with us and performing the wedding was obvious to all in attendance, and several family members mentioned how much they enjoyed watching her work. Despite the stresses of planning a wedding - working with Melanie was not only easy and stress-free; it was a blast. I've watched the video of our wedding twice in the last week, and I cannot get over just how perfect it was, and I cannot overstate how important Melanie was in giving us exactly the day we'd dreamed of.

My husband and I did premarital counseling with Melanie. Since we live in Chicago, we made arrangements to do our sessions over Skype. Melanie was professional, warm and caring so we felt very comfortable opening up to her. I highly recommend doing premarital counseling and Melanie is a great choice. :)
