Tie the Knot Wedding Ceremonies is truly fantastic. We had the pleasure of working with Anna, and I cannot say enough great things about working with her. She is awesome! From the beginning, it was important to us to find an officiant who could understand how we envisioned our ceremony, because we are a non-religious/non-traditional couple with no interest in the standard, cookie-cutter traditions. We were looking for a ceremony that was about who we are together, and our uniqueness that shapes our bond. A ceremony made for our expectations, not the guests'.
We definitely found this in Tie the Knot & Anna was very open-minded about our plans and really, truly listened to our ideas and suggestions. She helped us craft and customize our ceremony to reflect our fun personalities, our nerdy tendencies, and the love we share. She also took the time to get to know who we both were before we met and who we are today. Even though we had only just met in the months leading up to the ceremony, I felt like Anna really knew us and understood us as though she had known us for longer.
The day of the wedding was the best ever! During the rehearsal, Anna was completely prepared and made sure each person in our wedding party knew what to do. One of the groomsmen was a bit late to practice, and he was able to pick up exactly what was going on because Anna was so on top of things. Not going to lie, I was nervous during the rehearsal because this is when all the pieces of the puzzle start coming together. But after we wrapped up, I was completely at ease and confident the day of would be excellent. And it was! Everything went so smoothly, that it felt like just another rehearsal run-through, and then I realized, "Oh, wait, this is actually happening now!" And it was fun. Sooo much fun! I couldn't have envisioned a more perfect wedding. And all of our guests complimented us on how unique our ceremony was and how it was so 'us.' We totally recommend these guys!

We used Tie the Knot for our officiant and we were so glad we did! Our ceremony was outdoors at our Country Club venue in August 2013.
The process with Tie the Knot was easy. We contacted them via their website and then arranged to meet for coffee one evening. Melanie and Kevin came around to meet us, which was great. We went through a bunch of questions about ourselves and our ceremony/wedding style. Then we were able to ask questions and decide if they were a good fit or not.
That was our only face to face planning session. We then did some email planning sessions for our ceremony outline with Kevin (our officiant) in the meantime. Once we got that all set we were ready to go. A few days before the wedding Kevin gave us a call to make sure we were doing alright and ready to go. The nice thing too was that we could make our service our own, particularly as religious as we wanted it or not.
Kevin did our rehearsal for us the day before the wedding. It was great and he was able to get everyone organized and in their places. The day of the ceremony was also perfect. Kevin had everything going smoothly and we didn't know of any issues or hiccups. The ceremony itself was beautiful and special. We were so glad to have Kevin and the Tie the Knot team involved in our wedding!!

My husband I had the honor of having Grant marry us this last June. We were looking for someone who was fun, outgoing, and someone that could make the ceremony truely reflect us. Prior to the wedding, Grant would call to see how things were going and to offer his assistance with anything. This was truely appreciated, as with any bride, the closer to the wedding date, the more"things" pop up that you need help with. We selected to have Grant come up with a unique ceremony for us, which included a vow exchange between myself, and my new beautiful step-daughters. Although it wasn't our intent, the vows had all the guests reaching for tissue at the beautiful words. After the ceremony, with all the commotion of signing the license and getting the dress bustled, we thought we would miss the cocktail hour. So in true fashion, Grant ran to our aid, and brought myself and my husband, a much needed drink! I can't say enough about Grant and what he did for us on our wedding day! Guests loved how he truely captured our personalities in the ceremony. Without a doubt, I would recommend Grant to anyone in search of the perfect officiant! Amanda & Fred

My husband and I have said to each other several times since our wedding day - "I'm so glad we chose Melanie [at Tie the Knot Ceremonies] for our ceremony - it was exactly what we wanted." No joke - we have said this out loud to each other!
We met Melanie over coffee early on in our wedding planning process and we selected her to do our ceremony after meeting with several other officiants. Her upbeat, laid back personality, and detailed & professional communication told us we could trust her to officiate exactly the wedding we wanted. And we were right!
We chose the standard ceremony and it was perfect for our needs. Melanie made the process of detailing out the ceremony incredibly simple for us, and the day before rehearsal helped prepare for the big day without being too much of a commitment. And the day of - it was perfect! Melanie helped put our minds and nerves at ease from the moment we stepped up to the podium, and she led a perfectly heartfelt yet simple ceremony. Not to mention her "emergency kit" saved the day - a Tide stick she had packed got a mud stain out of my dress right before the ceremony! Her flexibility and professionalism was very much appreciated on such a big day for us!
We had a 100% positive with Tie the Knot and we'd happily recommend them to couples that are looking for simple, heartfelt ceremonies!
