    Most memorable day of our lives

    We were lucky enough to find Melody through a recommendation of our family friends. She was incredibly kind, supportive, and greeted us with an open mind and an open heart. She truly got to know who we both are as individuals as well as our story as a couple. She incorporated our story into the ceremony which tied everything together so beautifully, and she also brought in spiritual elements that resonated with us as well. The ceremony was so completely “us”, and it was a perfect balance of tradition and honest, real love.

    Absolutely Perfect

    My fiance and I reached out to Melody because we had read such wonderful reviews, and after an amazing experience with her I just knew I had to add to her list. From our very first conversation with Melody, we both felt to at ease. She made the whole process manageable. Just a few short conversations with us and she was able to write the most beautiful and personal ceremony. Our guests could not stop mentioning how wonderful the ceremony was and how perfect it seemed for us. Everyone was shocked that she hadn’t known us longer. She is such a genuinely friendly person, and it was so wonderful to get to work with her on our big day. We weren’t sure on any specifics when we first met with her, but she somehow knew what we needed and I cannot imagine a more perfect ceremony.
