"Melinda was truly amazing as our wedding officiant. She worked with us on getting a script together that felt genuine to our relationship and officiated in such a way that let ourselves shine. She has a beautifully calm voice that resonates love and a gentle but confident vibe. I couldn't be more impressed with her and wish I had more time to chat with her on the big day."

To ensure that I can provide the best possible service to all of my clients, I kindly request that you reach out to me only if you are seriously considering booking my services.
I value your time as well as my own, and I'm committed to providing efficient and effective service.
To check my availability for your wedding date, please complete my consultation form linked on the bottom of this page. If I'm available, I'll send you a link to schedule a chat via phone call, Zoom, or Google Meets, whichever works best for you.
During our 30-minute to an-hour initial consultation, I'll be listening intently to understand what you're looking for in a wedding ceremony.
As an officiant, I genuinely enjoy meeting all couples and getting to know them! This meeting will allow us to make sure we're the right fit for each other.
If you decide to book me as your wedding officiant after our consultation, I'll send over a proposal that includes a contract and invoice.
The contract will outline the services I'll provide, pricing, payment schedule, and any other important details.
To secure your wedding date on my calendar, I require a 50% retainer at the time of booking. The remaining balance is due 14 days prior to the wedding date.
Once you receive the proposal, you'll have 24 hours to review and secure your wedding date. After this timeframe, the date will be released to other couples inquiring if the booking remains incomplete.
My calendar fills up quickly during peak wedding season, so don't hesitate to book!
As an ordained minister, I am legally authorized to perform rites of marriage. Have no worries, I will lead you through the process of obtaining your marriage license.
After the ceremony I will sign the marriage license and submit back to the Probate Court the next business day.
You will receive your marriage certificate within 1-4 weeks, depending on which county probate you obtained your marriage license.
I am absolutely thrilled to be a wedding officiant who celebrates love in all its beautiful forms! My passion lies in creating personalized wedding ceremonies that honor and respect each couple's unique background, beliefs, and values.
I wholeheartedly embrace the LGBTQ+ community, religious diversity, the non-religious, cultural diversity, and gender equality through the use of inclusive and thoughtful language in every ceremony.
Your wedding should be a true reflection of who you are, and I'm committed to working closely with each couple to craft a truly meaningful and inclusive celebration.
I warmly welcome all couples and can't wait to help you create an unforgettable and joyous celebration of your love!
"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."
