You will NEVER regret working with Melissa!!
On the day of our ceremony, Melissa showed up on time and ready to go. She printed out schedule hand outs for all of our vendors, introduced herself and was very professional. The ceremony was my absolute FAVORITE thing about our wedding. And every friend and family member I spoke with that night RAVED over it. It was a hit for everyone in attendance, sharing they had never been to a wedding with a ceremony like that. Melissa's personal recommendation for us to do integrated vows were something no one had ever seen, and it made our wedding even that much more special.
All in all, I cannot recommend Melissa enough! If you are on the fence and looking to save money and considering going elsewhere, this is your sign to move funds around to make Melissa work. She was an integral part of our day, and I will never forget the wonderful work, effort and thought she put into my Husband and I. She made the day not only meaningful, but easy with the filing side of things. She filed our paperwork immediately and ordered copies on my behalf. I had them in the mail within a week thanks to her urgency! Melissa is worth every penny, AND MORE! Seriously, this is your officiant!
5 Stars Isn't Enough!
A wonderful ceremony made for us!
