    Phenomenal!!

    Melissa officiated our wedding on 10/05/19 and she was absolutely incredible! We had an unconventional "surprise" wedding in our backyard with immediate family. She was so accommodating for all of our requests (tree planting, our own vows, customized ring exchange wording, etc). We opted to not have a rehearsal, and our wedding was so seamless you'd think we all practiced several times! She was just phenomenal and made our day perfect.

    Morgan, thank you so much for the kind review. I so enjoyed meeting you and your lovely family! Walking up and seeing people with smiles and tears from finding out about the "surprise" wedding was the highlight of my career. Your attention to detail and customization made for a beautiful ceremony and it was my pleasure to be a part of your wedding day. I know you and Dan will have many MANY years of happiness!

    Melissa was wonderful.

    Never did we ever feel uncomfortable or that we were going to have a difficult time. Melissa helped us to feel relaxed and made everything easy for us to understand. We found her services to be outstanding.

    Amazing to work with!

    My husband and I LOVED working with Melissa! She helped us to create a wedding ceremony tailored to our story. She guided us in designing a ceremony that appealed to more traditional members of our families, while emphasizing the ideals that meant the most to my husband and I. She helped us pick readings from her vast collection, and wrote her own words that were incredibly touching and heartfelt. We could not have asked for anything more from our ceremony!
