Couldn' have asked for more Ten Stars


“Our camp fire wedding on the beach in Cannon Beach was more than we expected. Reverend Mel from our 1st consult and through the ceremony was flawless, warm and personable. He follow-uped ever so often to check on us before the wedding to see if he could assist in any way. In fact, we chose Cannon Beach rather than Seaside because it was more picturesque for photos and at his "to think about it" suggestion. We are so grateful to Rev. Mel. Thank you.” Amanda and Derek

From our first meeting we enjoyed Mel's company and suggestions, but the choices were always are. Gracious with our guests and professionally friendly. Amazingly made EVERYONE feel at ease on our busy and sometimes stressful day. God sent. He made our day more special. Seemed like family. We cannot recommend more. 10 stars out of 5 !

We're so glad we chose Rev. Mel. A nicer person can't be found. Even though our ceremony was a little late and Rev. Mel had an appointment he was going to be late for, he didn't make us feel like we were inconveniencing him. He delivered the ceremony in a professional and fun way. All of our guests kept telling us what a great job he did. I recommend him to anybody who is looking for a great officiant.
