Affordable Ceremonies With Love And Respect

I work with people of all faiths and traditions and absolutely LOVE doing so. I believe love comes before our faiths and just happen to steep my own faith in God through the lens of Judaism. I believe you deserve a ceremony that speaks for you – both individually and as a couple preparing to be joined into a family. We'll sit down together (or meet virtually if you prefer) and talk about what would make your ceremony perfect for you. We discuss every option available and start a dialogue that opens you up to the many possibilities inherent in a wedding ceremony. Together we will create a unique and personal ceremony that reflects your individuality and style. My graceful and loving presence, coupled with compassionate skill and a sense of humor are just a few of my gifts to you.

Let me just start by saying, Rabbi Melinda Bernstein is an angel! She has a heart of gold and the sweetest temperament. From the first moment we spoke, I knew she was the perfect person to officiate our wedding! We got married on June 21, 2017. When I shared with her the date of... Read More our wedding, she immediately picked up on the significance of the day. She knew it was the date of the summer solstice and that we had chosen a very spiritual day to exchange our nuptials on. She was so excited to work with us and made the whole process a joy! She took very detailed notes of our personalities, common interests, and spiritual beliefs. With that, she put together a beautiful ceremony that not only touched our hearts, but of our guests as well. The added bonus was the perfectly timed humor that she added just for us to lighten spirits and send us off with joy! Thank you Melinda!

We could not have chosen a better officiant. Melinda was a God-sent!!!! From that first phone call, we got the sense that Melinda's primary desire was to make our day special. She did not disappoint!!. I was so nervous at the beginning of the wedding ceremony but each time I...

She gave us great ideas/options to consider for the wedding ceremony one of which was the God's knot. Tying the God's knot added a unique spiritual dimension to our ceremony. We loved it!!

We hired Melinda to be the officiant at our wedding ceremony. After our wedding plans in Key West were destroyed by hurricane Irma, we had to build a wedding out of scratch in 10 days in Miami. We scheduled Melinda to start at at 6:45 pm but she was already at the venue at 6:15... Read More pm, leaving us pleanty of time to get acquinted and to take pictures with her. We liked that she has a sense of humor and projects confidence in what she does. We wanted a light Jewish wedding service and that is exactly what we got with Melinda.

Rabbi Melinda Bernstein officiated our wedding last year on the beach in Ft Lauderdale. She walked us through everything before arriving in Ft Lauderdale. When we got there, we changed our minds on the original venue and Melinda was so thoughtful and considerate in helping us... Read More plan a great spot. She got there early and made all the preparations. The whole time, she made us feel at ease and you could just feel the loving spirit coming out of her when we finally met. Melinda believes strongly that your wedding day should be one you will always look back on fondly and with beautiful memories. We couldn't have asked for a better planner. We considered others during our search, but truly Melinda was the perfect choice as she showed genuine interest in us and not just treat us like a number. Don't miss out on this opportunity to work with someone so caring.
