Melanie lived up to all the positive reviews on this site. From beginning to end she was kind, courteous, and professional. She provided valuable insights and suggestions that made our wedding over the weekend THAT much better. After speaking with Melanie on my own over the... Read More phone I knew she was the one we got to have, I went home and told my then fiance, now wife, I found our officiant. My fiance was a bit weary of my decision and so we scheduled a phone call with the three of us a few days later and about half way through the phone call my fiance whispered to me "I really like her (Melanie)". Thank you so much Melanie, our wedding wouldn't have been the same without you!!

We had a wonderful experience with Biz Kelly from Tie the Knot Wedding Ceremonies. When we first started looking for an officiant, we had no idea where to begin or what to look for. My husband and I are both nonreligious and we wanted to make sure that whoever we went with... Read More wouldn't force anything on us. We also had absolutely no idea where to start when it came to planning our actual ceremony. Cue Biz. During our first meeting with her, we felt at ease by her presence since she is very knowledgeable, courteous, and friendly. She helped us start the planning process (even beyond just the ceremony) and eased some of our nerves even before we hired her. Although we usually "shop around" for everything, we felt very confident in Biz and booked her shortly after our meeting. Throughout the planning process, Biz was nothing short of helpful and had great ideas along the way. Our wedding theme was fairytale and since we love all things Disney, we knew we wanted to incorporate that into every aspect of the day. When Biz sent over the first rough draft of our ceremony, she included several Disney references (without us asking) and we were ecstatic. Fast forward to the rehearsal and our big day, she helped get everyone on the same page for order of [pre-] processional, gave us tips for our sand ceremony, and again, helped ease nerves. She is always very prompt in email communication, has tons of ideas, wants your ceremony to be exactly how you want it, and is a genuinely kind person. We are so thankful for her and cannot wait to see our ceremony when we get our video footage back. If you're looking for an easy-going yet professional and knowledgeable officiant, you can't go wrong with Biz!

Our officiant, Anna, was amazing. She made sure that she got to know us, our relationship, and what we wanted from the ceremony. She also gave us a neat idea for our unity portion of the ceremony.

We made a great decision in having Anna officiate at our wedding. She's easy going and calm, so good to work with and had some really good ideas for our ceremony. She was fantastic. And she wasn't fazed a bit when some wasps decided to join our outdoor ceremony! Lol! Thank you... Read More Anna!

We had an amazing experience from the very start. Melanie was very helpful with all of our questions, we had absolutely no idea what we were doing or what we wanted or what we should be doing. Thankfully she had all the answers for us. She was very well prepared, even if we were... Read More a little slow to figure things out. She was always prompt with calls and emails, meetings. Also, she is super nice! I can’t imagine planning our day with anyone else, because she meshed with us and our individual weirdness. The ceremony was wonderful, she helped tailor make it to what we wanted, including the hand-fastening, which was a relatively unique thing, and she knew exactly what we were talking about and I think we even managed to pull it off, (or through I suppose lol). I highly recommend Tie the Knot, and Melanie in particular. Thank you again for helping make our special day especially incredible!

I became ordained in 2009 to perform my cousin’s wedding ceremony and instantly fell in love with the process. During the first part of 2010, I launched Tie The Knot Wedding Ceremonies, and so our little business began, out of love for our work. My team of officiants are passionate about creating and performing ceremonies for our couples that honor their wishes and their relationship. We pride ourselves on taking care of our couples. I am extremely blessed to have a job that I love and I am grateful for my Tie The Knot Wedding Ceremonies team, and I am proud to call each of them my friends.
