"Reverend Mel was just incredible! Our ceremony was so beautiful and just what I had hoped for. He is so kind, and has this presence that truly makes everyone feel welcome, and calm. He communicated really well leading up to the wedding and helped us plan the perfect readings and vows for our ceremony. I am so happy we chose Reverend Mel for our wedding and I highly recommend him to anyone looking for the best!"
---- Lucy L.
"I couldn’t have asked for a better person to officiate our wedding! Mel was very sweet and accommodating, he made everything go by smoothly and helped up with the whole process. I would 100% recommend him for anyone’s wedding. Thank you for everything Mel!"

“It was an pleasure meeting you and having you as out wedding officiant! Very knowledgeable and easy to work with.”
---- Dmytro O.
“Reverend Mel was cool, calm, and capable like he's done this before 100's of times. It definitely showed and despite my own personal reservations of "shopping" around for an officiant, I was very pleased with the outcome, so much so that I genuinely believe he deserves 5 stars. I recommend him and I'm grateful for his experience.”
----- Wade N Rogerson II
“Rev. Mel was awesome. He was super nice, on time, and helpful throughout the whole process. I would recommend him to anyone who needs to get married. 5 stars isn't a high enough rating.”
----- Brian Fitzgerald
