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!!
