About

$350 Typical Price

As a spiritual interfaith ministry, Celebrations of the Spirit is a unique community where people of diverse experiences and backgrounds can come together. We believe that it is only through an exchange of ideas that we will truly be able to honor each other with tolerance, compassion, and finally unconditional love. This acceptance and openess gives Rev. Melinda the ability to create a wedding experience that is tailored to the couples wishes and beliefs about marriage and love.

Whether you plan to elope, would like a small "no fuss" ceremony, or plan to go all out with a ceremony created just for two of you, Rev. Melinda can provide a wedding ceremony that reflects not only the love, but also the specialness of your relationship. This is the most important day of your lives...let Celebrations of the Spirit put the heart...and celebration...into your special day!

Rev. Melinda is also available for vow renewal ceremonies, baptism and baby welcoming ceremonies, as well as memorials and funerals,

    Excellent!

    Melinda came highly recommended and we were very happy that we chose her to officiate our wedding. When I reached out to her, she answered my questions and guided me to the services that would most meet our needs. I decided to mesh together parts of a few of the scripts she offers, and in preparing the ceremony, she communicated with me very thoughtfully and in a timely fashion to ensure what I selected came together nicely. Melinda was very accommodating and detail oriented. I could tell how much she cared and that she was truly happy to be part of our special day. On wedding day, she delivered the ceremony beautifully, with a warm and strong presence. The words she said resonated with us perfectly and many guests commented on how absolutely wonderful it was.
