    Amazing experience!

    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!

    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!
