TESTIMONIALS

Melinda was our officiant and we were very happy with our wedding ceremony. We weren't really sure where to start when we first met with Melinda, and she took control and walked us right through the ceremony planning, giving us plenty of options to figure out what we wanted. She was flexible with helping us arrange the ceremony words to our liking as we tweaked things here and there and everything turned out just great. On the day of the wedding, she wore a beautiful white suit and had everything neatly organized on her tablet, so it really looked professional as well. The ceremony went flawlessly and everyone was just so touched with how intimate and beautiful it was. 
Traditional 
Melinda was introduced to us as a reform rabbi from Beth David Memorial Cemetary in Hollywood. Our mother passed away so it was a tense situation. We picked just about the most perfect and caring person in Melinda we could have hoped for. She called right away, spent the time researching with us moms history and relationships, and in the end had formulated a wonderful tribute for her. She was able to coral the entire family into contributing their thoughts and prayers, and from that it flowed into a beautiful ceremony and send off. We will always be thankful to her for helping us through such a difficult time, and consider her a friend and person we can lean on in tough times. Thanks you Rabbi Melinda! From, The Cohen's.

Melinda was simply perfect, she was definitely THE ONE for our wedding (August 20th, 2016 in Fort Lauderdale). Since her first phone call, we felt a very good, dynamic and loving energy. After several exchanges by emails and text messages, we rapidly met her and this feeling we had in the first place got confirmed. We had such a beautiful intimate and spiritual ceremony. She really made that day special and one of a kind. She was like an angel, witness of our love and happiness.
