Tie the Knot Wedding Ceremonies did an amazing job for us. We had the pleasure of working with Melanie. We appreciated her following our wishes to make our ceremony simple but yet elegant, quick and to the point. She made us feel very comfortable with everything. We decided to not do a rehearsal and we literally talked about what we were going to do 30 minutes before the ceremony. Melanie made sure that we were ready and everything after that was "whatever!" It went so smoothly and so fast and that is exactly what we wanted. I highly recommend these guys! And thank you so much Melanie, for everything!
Couldn't have found anyone more suited to us! Fantastic!!Reviewed on 10/15/2013 Leah M
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!
My husband and I loved working with Biz from Tie the Knot Wedding Ceremonies. We didn't know exactly what we wanted from our wedding ceremony, other than wanting it to feel authentically like us. Biz provided guidance and advice, and thoughtfully incorporated elements that we decided to include. She arrived early on wedding day and directed both the rehearsal and ceremony with professionalism and humor. We loved working with Biz and highly recommend her to other couples.
Melanie was awesome! Met with us several times to make sure our ceremony was perfect. She even let us take a selfie in the middle of the ceremony (per our request)

We had the pleasure to work with Anna, she is a delight to work with. She helped us come up with our own ceremony that fit our personality, we wanted something short and sweet and she was able to make that happen. She was always able to answer any questions in a timely manner. All in all Tie the Knots is great and I recommend working with them. Nothing but good things to say! Thank you Anna for being apart of our wonderful day! :)
we worked with mel from tie the knot. we could have not been more pleased with her! from the rehearsal dinner to the ceremony, our guests had nothing, but amazing things to say about here. she truly captured our unique and silly relationship perfectly in the ceremony. love this team!
Great Wedding CeremonyReviewed on 9/27/2015 Erin B
We loved working with Grant of Tie the Knot Wedding Ceremonies! Grant was so helpful the entire time we were planning our wedding. He was easy to get a hold of whenever we had questions, which was what we needed since we were planning our wedding from another state. He always made time for us via email and Skype to go over our ceremony notes. On the day of our wedding, he helped organized everyone for us and made sure everyone knew their roles; he was a big part of the reason our wedding day ran so smoothly. You can tell Grant has a passion for people and what he does. Thanks for everything, Grant!
Grant did such an amazing job with our wedding ceremony. It was everything that we had hoped for and more! He made everything so stress free and easy that I didn't have to worry about anything! During the walk through the night before, he made sure that everyone knew where they were going and that we felt comfortable with what was going to happen the next day before we left. The ceremony was short like we wanted and included everything that we described to him. We can not say thank you enough to him for the ceremony he put together!
My wife and I had the pleasure of working alongside Grant whom helped us design, plan and execute a truly memorable wedding ceremony. The number of compliments received from guests was truly remarkable. From the beginning, we knew Grant was the perfect fit for what we were trying to accomplish. Not only did he spend 1.5 hours at our introductory meeting getting to know us as a couple, he came prepared with thoughts/ideas/suggestions as well as a solid outline of next steps in the process. As we worked through planning out the ceremony, step-by-step, Grant always made himself available and was extremely timely in his responses. As we got closer to our wedding date, Grant was there to check in and confirm everything was in order - he even took the time, the week of our wedding, to place separate calls to each of us just for the sake of saying hi! Not only was this reassuring but he also had great words of wisdom during the sometimes-stressful days leading up to the big day. As the big day finally rolled around, Grant was the consummate professional and executed his role flawlessly. He was a calming influence throughout and really helped make our wedding ceremony a special event. We can't thank Grant enough for all the time and effort he put forth and would recommend him to anyone and everyone. Thanks Grant!!!!!
We got the pleasure of working with Anna for our wedding. We could not have asked for anyone better to marry us. We really enjoyed working with her. Her calming attitude and voice really played a role in the feel before and during the ceremony. She made us feel very relaxed and happy. When we met with her for the first time, I really liked the questions she asked us to get to know us better. We also both really liked the ceremony rough draft she came up with for us. It really kind of felt personalized to fit us and there wasn't much at all that we changed from it. Thank you Anna so much for such a wonderful wedding ceremony!
Thank you Mel!Reviewed on 5/09/2015 Ruth W
Mel was great to work with. She helped us look at our relationship in a new way during our counseling and understand ourselves as a team. She gave advice and insight on things that helped us for our wedding. Our ceremony was personalized and quick which is good since we wanted that. Thank you Mel for everything!
Grant is the best!Reviewed on 11/23/2014 Liza P
Kevin and I were lucky enough to meet and work with Grant for our March 2014 wedding. Although we hadn't known each other long before the wedding, Grant was able to uniquely personalize the ceremony. I get complements all the time on how great he was and how much people loved that he really knew us when performing the ceremony - which is something that not all couples are lucky enough to find. Grant offered tons of suggestions where we wanted them and also let us customize the ceremony as much as we wanted. He was great on the day of the wedding, and kept everyone in the wedding party laughing during the rehearsal and pre-ceremony. I would HIGHLY recommend using Grant as your officiant!!!
Thank you Anna!Reviewed on 11/20/2014 Andrea L
We had the pleasure of working with Anna for our wedding. She was patient, kind and easy to work with. Initially I was a little concerned because we live out of state so wouldn't be able to meet her in person. We ended up meeting via skype and she made us feel comfortable throughout the entire process. Anna made sure that everything went smoothly the day of and we were definitely happy to have her there!

Anna from Tie the Knot is amazing. She was so professional and she made our wedding beautiful. Thanks Anna for being a part of our special day.
Thank you, Melanie!Reviewed on 11/04/2014 Nicole F
Melanie did a great job of making our secular ceremony meaningful for us and our guests. She was very helpful and available during the planning process and her presence at the rehearsal and ceremony was invaluable. Knowing I could rely on her to organize the ceremony took away all my stress.
Best officiant ever!Reviewed on 10/26/2014 Angie H
Melanie was absolutely amazing! We did premarital counseling, and it was so worth it. Not only did we learn a ton, but we had so much fun as well! When it came time for the wedding, she was fabulous! She had every detail taken care of and really listened to our vision. She made the experience so memorable. We are so lucky to have had her there and we would recommend her to everyone!
Perfect!Reviewed on 10/21/2014 Ashley L
My husband and I recently had the pleasure of Anna performing our wedding ceremony. She did a fantastic job and we got so many compliments on the ceremony. We wanted a ceremony that felt like us without being completely nontraditional and Anna nailed it. Our ceremony felt personal and special from beginning to end. After working with Anna, I am SO glad that Google led me to Tie the Knot. She's friendly, professional, sweet, and completely on top of things. I suffered from serious bride brain toward the end of wedding planning and she made sure that the ceremony was never one of the things stressing me out. I generally don't write reviews, but I felt compelled to give Anna (and Tie the Knot) two very enthusiastic thumbs up for being a truly awesome addition to our wedding.
Simply the BEST!!!!!Reviewed on 10/06/2014
I had the privilege of working with Anna for my niece's wedding. Anna was very patient as she met with the aunt and the great aunt of the bride as we began our journey planning a wedding in Minneapolis virutally!! Once we met Anna, we knew the bride and groom would love working with her! Now they just had to do it long distance since they were in Connecticut until the week before the wedding!! Anna put everyone at ease, and the ceremony was a beautiful, personal tribute to a very special couple!! As the aunt of the bride, and completing the wedding plans long distance, I was more than a little nervous about how this was all going to come together! The bride and groom were thrilled with Anna from the beginning, and it showed throughout the ceremony from start to finish!! Thank you, thank you, thank you Anna for making the day extra special!
A perfect ceremony!Reviewed on 10/06/2014
Melanie helped us create a perfect ceremony! She listened to us and came up with exactly what we wanted.
Anna and the herd of squirrelsReviewed on 10/05/2014 Kelly H
We worked with Anna, who was fantastic at getting our herd of squirrels sorted out. We planned a wedding remotely (we live in Connecticut), so needed to work with someone who was super organized and on top of their game. Anna interviewed us over Skype to lay down the groundwork for the ceremony, was incredibly patient while we wrote our own vows and selected readings, dealt with our hot mess of a rehearsal, and somehow on the day of, it looked like we actually knew what we were doing. I'm pretty sure only Anna could have made that happen. I'd say I'd work with her again, but I sure hope to not have to!!
Wonderful All AroundReviewed on 9/26/2014 Christina I
We got married four weeks ago and we had Grant officiant our ceremony. We could not recommend him more! From the first meeting we had with Grant, we knew he would officiate our wedding. He was extremely helpful, fun and overall great to work with over the 6 months leading up to our wedding. He has a great sense of humor too and can add it into your ceremony, if you want. We did and we are so happy we chose to! At the end of the wedding, we got a nice binder of the wedding ceremony in text so we can always keep that for our memories! You cannot go wrong with Grant and Tie the Knot Wedding Ceremonies! They are wonderful!!
Great company!!Reviewed on 9/05/2014 Katy B
Anna Butler officiated our August 31st wedding. We can not say enough good things about her! She was so helpful through the whole process! She made our ceremony everything we had imagined it to be and more!! She responded to my many e mails so quickly. We had to change our ceremony site at the last minute due to the weather and she was so accommodating and calm about it all! She checked in with both my husband and I about 30 min before the ceremony to make sure we didn't have any questions and to make sure we didn't need anything. A lot of my guests commented on her bubbly, fun personality. I would highly recommend her to future brides!!! You can't go wrong with this company!!
So ThankfulReviewed on 8/19/2014 Kelly T
We recently got married days ago and were so thankful to have Anna Butler from the Tie the Knot Wedding Ceremonies. As we started planning our wedding the scariest detail was the officiant. After all the most important part of the entire day is the ceremony, it is kind of the whole point! Making sure you have an officiant you like and feel comfortable working with is so important. I started looking around at local companies that offered officiants and I appreciated the ideas and philosophy of Tie the knot. I scrolled through the bios and chose Anna to meet with. We meet up at a local coffee shop and talked with Anna about what we wanted our ceremony to be like. She took notes on our history and who we were as a couple. We felt really comfortable with Anna and knew that she would do a great job. Over the remaining 9 or so months leading up to the wedding we kept in contact with Anna over e-mail. She sent us a rough outline and then worked with us to remove, add, or change parts of the ceremony. We went with the more personalized package because we wanted it to be unique. Anna was so open to our changes and willing to help us through all of the edits. One aspect we both really liked was the reasons to marry. We wrote them separately and Anna read them during the ceremony. They were difficult to write but we are so glad we did. We both sent Anna our drafts and she helped us write similar statements with a little help. The day before the wedding Anna ran the rehearsel and made sure we felt comfortable about the next day. The day of the wedding Anna showed up early to make sure we felt ok with everything and meet with any vendors involved in the ceremony. During the ceremony she did a wonderful job reading her part and keeping us calm! I would highly recommend Anna and Tie the Knot to any couple looking for an officiant. We heard from so many guests that it was the most beautiful ceremony they have ever attended! You cannot go wrong with this company! I promise!
Stemme WeddingReviewed on 7/05/2014 angie n
Melanie officiated our wedding on June 28, 2014. She was absolutely amazing! She took care of all of the details for us so we could enjoy the day and not have to worry about a thing. Unfortunately we had a huge downpour 20 mins before our ceremony started which was supposed to be outside. Melanie ran out to help the DJ get all of his equipment inside and got completely soaked :( But she came in with a smile, dried herself off as much as she could and came to make sure the groom and I were doing okay and not upset about the weather. She was so sweet and kept us calm through the whole process. She made the day so special for us and kept our spirits up. Even through the ceremony she reminded us to take deep breaths and made everything all about us. We absolutely loved her!!
A Ceremony To RememberReviewed on 6/23/2014 Jennifer S
When we first met Anna, we knew right away that we wanted her to marry us. She has a very calming nature, which we knew would be just what we needed the day of the wedding. From day one, Anna worked with us on creating a ceremony that was so special. Anna got to know us, listened to our history and our stories, and created a ceremony that had people laughing, crying and clapping. I lost track of how many people commented after the ceremony on how wonderful Anna was and how much they enjoyed the ceremony; that they were on the edge of their seats wondering what was going to come next. There were sections of the ceremony that we didn't see beforehand, and not knowing what she was going to say was fun! She was so patient through the whole planning process, and never grew tired of my questions and requests. She was always quick to respond. She gave us a beautiful printout of our ceremony as a keepsake. Thank you Anna and Tie The Knot, for a ceremony that we will cherish forever, and our guests will never forget!
