"Having Minister Melinda officiate our wedding day was on of the best decisions we made! Her willingness and ability to accommodate any wedding style is simply amazing. She provided pre-marital counseling with activities catered to the opportunity areas of our relationship. She gets to the meat of it! Melinda worked with us to create a ceremony script that we were comfortable with. She provided options, but in no way was it overbearing. She participated in rehearsal and on the wedding day, she arrived timely with her warm smile! I cant say thank you enough for making this exactly what we wanted and stress free."

Let me congratulate you on your decision to tie the knot, I am a strong believer in the power of love.
The whole universe conspired to help you find your soulmate!
Why did I become a Wedding Officiant? … My best friend and her husband decided to elope and chose a local judge to marry them. The groom’s best friend and I came along to cheer our friends on. Unbelievably this judge was aloof, impatient, and just downright rude. I wanted to sweep them out of there and marry them myself.
The way my friends were treated on their wedding day plagued my brain and drove a deep desire in me to give couples an experience of romance, love, and joy. On that very day I decided to become a marriage officiant and thus Melinda Thee Officiant was born!
A LITTLE ABOUT ME… Known professionally as Minister Melinda, I am a wedding officiant ordained by The Universal Life Church, based in Atlanta.
What an honor it is to see couples at their happiest, when I get to join them in matrimony. Let me say, love is my passion. I am a romanticist who is fascinated with the art of love. My heart overflows with compassion and hopes for the healing of all humanity. A true Pollyanna I am, a social butterfly that has never met a stranger.
Growing up a military brat was such an adventure! I had the privilege of living in multiple states and countries around the world. Following in my father's footsteps, I also did a stint in the Army. Atlanta has been my home now for over fifteen years and I absolutely love this city!
Alongside officiating weddings, I am also a Licensed Esthetician. When I am not hitching lovers or pampering someone, you can catch me enjoying the great outdoors with my beautiful family and hosting dinners at my home, I love to cook.
From religious to secular, and formal to informal, I perform all types of ceremonies. Every couple is unique and has a different story.
So, the perfect wedding to me is one that you want your way, whether it's a small intimate affair or a grand gala. All that matters is that you vow a commitment to love and have a blast at the same time. I'm excited for you and can't wait to hear from you!
