  • My husband and I received many compliments on the ceremony Melody performed for us. I knew from our first Zoom meeting she was a great fit for us. She took our love story and worked it into the ceremony. She met with us a couple of times to learn our story and what we wanted for our ceremony. She was extremely friendly and easy to work with. I was worried about finding an officiant but after speaking with Melody, my worry was over.
