Yes, very comfortable. Rev Melanie listened to our needs and helped us create a low pressure ceremony fitting our personalities.
Humor and ease. Time is so precious before the wedding. Rev Melanie did not require a lot of time to get herself and us ready!
We created our own ceremony using 40 some examples Rev Melanie had emailed us. Completely personalized.
Quick and eloquent.

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not? Rev. Melanie was the officiant who presided over our wedding ceremony. She did an amazing job and had the right amount of humor and used it when appropriate. She helped put us at ease and she kept me from crying during our ceremony. She did an amazing job and we would recommend her to anyone! A++
What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected? Rev. Melanie did a great job helping us with the ceremony flow. We chose to do our rehearsal the Thursday before our wedding and it was a great decision. Rev. Melanies suggested how the bridal party should come out, how slowly to walk, the timeline of the ceremony...we left the rehearsal feeling like we knew exactly what to expect the day of.
How did you personalize your wedding ceremony? We chose to use some of the "sample ceremonies" that were provided to us but we cut and pasted parts we liked and then tweaked them so they were appropriate for us and our personalities. We were very please with the content and length of the ceremony we created. We also chose to do a sand ceremony instead of a unity candle and are pleased with our decision.
Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests? Quite a few of our guests commented on Rev. Melanie's use of humor to put us at ease and to keep me from crying. Everyone thought she did a great job!
