"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."

The Process

  • If I am available on your wedding date, I will send you a link to schedule a time for us to chat via phone  call, Zoom, or Google Meets. Whichever is best for you.

  • The initial consultation typically lasts 30 minutes to an hour, in which I will be listening intently to understand what you are looking for in a wedding ceremony.

  •  I will walk  you through the ceremony creation process step by step, offering suggestions and leading you through a guideline of elements that may be included. 

 

  • If you choose to incorporate family, friends, traditions, or customs the sky is the limit when it comes to creating your ceremony. I also have a list of beautiful and unique enhancements that I will gladly share.

 

  • You will always have the final say on the ceremony, so that it is exactly what you want and look forward  to with  joyful anticipation on your wedding day.

  • Leading up to your wedding day, we will stay in contact via email, calls, and remote meetings.
