WHAT'S YOUR STORY?

I LOVE stories!  I love hearing & telling them and I LOVE marrying lovers - it's my most favorite thing to do!

Here at Melissa Coe Ceremonies, you won't find cookie-cutter, boring, redundant, copied-off-the-internet wedding ceremonies and you certainly won't find predictable!

What you will find is a refreshing, personal and customized approach designed to make your wedding ceremony the BEST one you and your guests have ever attended!  Each ceremony is created to be as unique as you and your love story: personal, meaningful, entertaining, fun and profound.  No two ceremonies are ever the same.

So, let's get started on creating memories which everyone will talk about for years to come because I absolutely cannot wait to tell your story!

AMAZING!!! She was fun to work with and my guests favorite part about the wedding was our ceremony, which thanks to Melissa was perfect! The ceremony was exactly what we wanted and it was incredible personal to us. If you get the chance to work with her, I would jump on the opportunity. She is easy to work with, creates an entirely personalized ceremony and goes above and beyond in so many ways!

Melissa was an absolutely amazing officiant. She took the time to meet both of us and really get to know what was important to us in a wedding ceremony. She then put together a ceremony that was both incredibly personal and beautifully written. Multiple guests told us later that they were just blown away by how beautiful our ceremony had been. Additionally, she made a special effort to make sure that the wording was consistent with our values and gave us absolute veto power, which made us feel comfortable that there would be no surprises. We would absolutely give her the highest recommendation.

Melissa Coe is the BEST in Portland.........

Melissa Coe has been absolutely wonderful to work with! I highly recommend her to every couple I can. She has an incredible ability to connect so well with people. She has such a wonderful presence and adds the perfect touch to ceremonies. She is very reliable, professional and brings great energy. I feel so lucky to have met Melissa and love sharing this jewel with the brides and grooms I work with. :)

Once you meet Melissa, you could not imagine your wedding without her! Melissa's attention to detail and genuine interest in getting to know the couples she works with shows with her very unique and personalized ceremonies. From laughs to happy tears, Melissa will make your day special & memorable for you AND your guests.

Working as an event coordinator at Lakeside Gardens I see a lot of ceremonies. Outside of personal vows spoken by the bride and groom most ceremonies tend to be very cookie cutter - you've seen one, you've seen them all! That was not the case with the ceremony that Melissa performed. She took it to a whole new level. It was apparent that Melissa had really gotten to know the bride and groom and their story. Through a series of questions she had asked both the bride and groom, she shared their story throughout the ceremony. It was the most custom and touching ceremony I have witnessed. By the end of the thing I really knew the sweet couple's love story. I thought this was very special for friends and family to feel a part of their story and relationship. Melissa may charge a little more than other officiants but it seems well worth it! The ceremony is the most personal part of a wedding - don't pick an officiant that will remain a stranger to stand up with you on your big day! Hoping to have you back again soon, Melissa. Jenna
