My husband and I received many compliments on the ceremony Melody performed for us. I knew from our first Zoom meeting she was a great fit for us. She took our love story and worked it into the ceremony. She met with us a couple of times to learn our story and what we wanted for our ceremony. She was extremely friendly and easy to work with. I was worried about finding an officiant but after speaking with Melody, my worry was over.Sent on 09/16/2020

My fiance and I had an amazing experience with Melody! We were looking for a quick elopement ceremony in September and reached out to Melody less than a week before we were trying to have our elopement. She was very responsive and flexible throughout the entire process, even on a holiday weekend. Melody listened to exactly what we wanted and was able to make our ceremony a dream come true. We highly recommend her!Sent on 10/07/2019

Melody was phenomenal
We originally found out about Melody through our wedding coordinator and we are so happy we did! She was a pleasure to communicate with and took the time to learn about me and my husband to create a ceremony unique to us. She was very flexible and when we had to reschedule our wedding due to COVID, she didn't hesitate to let us know she was still good to go for our new wedding date. We loved working with her and would recommend her to anybody!Sent on 09/14/2020
Living for Love's reply:Thanks for your kind words, Shelby! Wishing the best best best to you both for your life and love ahead.
