I can't say enough wonderful things about Melinda. She was a true blessing to us and our wedding ceremony! When we started searching, we knew we wanted an officiant that was personable - yet professional - and had a warm demeanor. We had interviewed about 6 officiants and Melinda was the last. As soon as we greeted by her, my fiance and I knew she was "the one" for us. Melinda did a wonderful job at explaining not only the ceremony process and outline, but also kept us informed of what needed to be done and when to get married (marriage license, timelines, etc.). She did a phenomenal job of crafting our ceremony with our specific requests. When we were a bit confused, Melinda did not hesitate to schedule a meeting and meet with us in person, even if was only for 20 minutes. On the day of our wedding, she showed up early and executed our ceremony to perfection. Afterwards, we received many compliments from guests asking how long we've known her for, as it seemed she knew us very well. This was such a joy to hear and that speaks volumes of Melinda's warm personality and true professionalism as an officiant. Our ceremony was lighthearted, funny at times, and embodied the love between my fiance and I.... Melinda, we can't thank you enough. You were a true joy to work with and I look forward to keeping in touch! Anyone who is looking for an officiant that does an INCREDIBLE job, will listen to you and tailor to your requests, will go above and beyond your expectations, and dare I say it - doesn't hurt the wallet too much either! - you should definitely go with Melinda and Celebrations of the Spirit.

Rev. Melinda was beyond perfect as an officiant for our outdoor ceremony. The first time my husband and I met up with her, we felt so comfortable so fast! She was perfect for us :) we forgot a few things for our ceremony the day of the wedding, and she made us laugh about our forgetfulness during the ceremony. Definitely helped take the edge off. Super professional, very go-with-the-flow, and so happy. We loved Melinda. Best of the bunch!

Simply put, Melinda was great! Everything from her kindness to professionalism; we really appreciated how easy she was to work with. Highly recommend!

Melinda was wonderful to work with as the officiant for our wedding. She took the time to get to know us individually and as a couple to customize the ceremony to fit us perfectly. We brought along readings and vows we liked and she was willing to incorporate them into her writing. Melinda arrived at the ceremony site on our wedding day early to check in with us and made sure everything ran smoothly with the ceremony from there on out. It was obvious that Melinda loves what she does and truly cared about making our ceremony special. Even though it was a chilly fall day, Melinda braved the outdoor ceremony with us. We highly recommend Celebrations of the Spirit.

Megan said...
Melinda was an absolute dream to work with. The words she used to describe our love was above and beyond anything I could have ever imagined. Everyone loved the ceremony and many were brought to tears. Thank you so much for all of your help and for making our day spectacular.

As a bride you are always nervous when finding someone online to be your officiant. My husband and I honestly couldn't have found anyone more perfect to officiate our wedding. From the first meeting it was meant to be. Our conversation was easy as she made us feel so comfortable and welcomed in her home. She asked questions that really made her try to get to know us, our relationship, our families, our hobbies and what we envisioned on our wedding day. Being two religious people who no longer go to church every Sunday we wanted a semi traditional ceremony without an excessive mentioning of God. Within weeks of meeting she had our wedding script emailed to us to review. I literally made three changes of small words and picked the vows, ring blessing and readings we loved. She nailed it! When the wedding day came, it was raining but literally stopped only ten minutes before my ceremony which was to be outside. She supported me and got people moving to prepare the outdoor ceremony site in a speedy fashion when I decided I was still going outside. Everything went perfectly. She was professional, personable and feels like a true friend. I could not be happier with how perfectly she was for our dream wedding ceremony. Thank you Melinda!

We knew after the first time meeting Rev. Melinda that she would be the perfect person to marry us. And we were right! Her words during the ceremony were beautiful and unexpectedly emotionally charged. We honestly felt like we were married by a close friend! Words cannot begin to describe how thrilled we were with Melinda, our ceremony, and just how perfect everything was! She was the one that pronounced us husband and wife...and we are eternally grateful!

Ashley said...
Melinda allowed Phil and I to enjoy every second of our wedding. When you work with someone who is professional, knows what to expect and caters to the style of the bride and groom, you end up with a smooth sailing wedding that you know will turn out fantastic because Melinda has thought of it all and has it covered : ) Melinda is kind and goes with the flow, which helped me keep a positive and calm mood the day of my wedding! I thought of Melinda as a guest at our wedding, as she is genuinely happy for her couples.

Jennifer said...
I cannot express how grateful and pleased I am with Reverend Melinda. She hands down made our day absolutely perfect! I received so many compliments on how personalized and wonderful our ceremony was and it showed that Melinda had taken the time to get to know my husband and I. She was able to add the laughter and love that we had described to her at our meeting. Melinda was professional and quick to respond to any e-mails that I had sent her way. I would highly recommend Reverend Melinda Angstadt to any engaged couples looking for an officiant for their wedding. She was such a joy to work with!

Amy said...
My husband and I were in a difficult situation because he is Catholic and I was raised Presbyterian. Neither one of us are active in our church community and wanted a "short and sweet" non denominational ceremony. We were having issues finding the right fit. Our search lasted a few weeks until I came across Melinda and her website. From the get go I knew she was everything I was looking for. Her responsiveness to my emails were always within a 24hour period. She was professional, down to earth and funny!!! Her easy-going personality, quality of service, pricing and flexibility really blew us way. Our wedding day came and she told me my Fiancé had said to her, "Melinda! It's like I already know you!". Being out of state we did not get to do a meeting before the special day. This would be nerve wrecking to some bride and grooms but she made the entire process very comfortable and was always by the phone or computer when I needed her. My husband and I cannot wait to be able to recommend her to close family and friends as she was absolute amazing...beyond words!

Melinda was amazing and so wonderful to work with!!! She is so professional and flexible. We couldn't have asked for a better officiant for our ceremony! Thank you so much! I highly recommend her to anyone looking for an officiant for their ceremony.

Kaitlyn said...
We loved having Melinda Angstadt as our wedding officiant. Melinda is extremely prompt when answering emails. She sat down with my husband and I and asked us a series of questions that would help guide her in writing our ceremony. Melinda got the ceremony back to us quickly for us to review it. There were no changes necessary as the ceremony brought me to tears!  The day of the wedding, Melinda was there early and helped calm any nerves (of my mother!). We also had our ceremony interpreted into Italian for my husband's family,and Melinda was extremely flexible with allowing us to do this! We loved having her as a part of our ceremony and are so happy with having chose her as an officiant!

Sherrie said...
Melinda was an no-brainer choice for my husband and me! We are an interfaith couple and wanted a secular ceremony. Melinda was great at accommodating that, and allowing us to pick and choose components of the ceremony templates on her website that we liked, as well as adding our own flair. She was also incredibly responsive when we had questions and was helpful with her suggestions, based off her wealth of experience. Melinda was lovely to meet with, made us feel instantly comfortable and welcomed. Our guests still tell us how impressed they were by her poise and warmth, and how smoothly the ceremony went. We were unable to do a rehearsal for the ceremony because of scheduling conflicts, but it wasn't a problem and everything went seamlessly day-of! We highly recommend Melinda and are so grateful that she was a part of our perfect, special day.

April said...
Melinda was amazing. She was professional, flexible, and easy to work with. We knew the moment we met her that she was perfect for our wedding. She immediately made us feel comfortable and at ease. The wedding ceremony was amazing and everything we wanted to be. One of the best wedding decisions we made was choosing Melinda and Celebrations of the Spirit.

Stacie said...
Absolutely a 5 star review! Melinda was such a pleasure to work with leading up to the ceremony and had great advice and worked amazingly with our last minute changes. She provided heartfelt wording for different ceremony options and allowed us to mix and match and create exactly what we wanted. On the wedding day she beautifully led the ceremony, despite some less than perfect circumstances (like my veil falling out mid-ceremony and my new husband altering the vows to the amusement of our guests)! Melinda is such a sweet and calming woman that I would recommend to ANYONE looking for an officiant. Thank you so much for giving us our perfect ceremony!!!

Nicole said...
Melinda was perfect for us! There were many options to choose from for the ceremony, and she was amazing at tailoring it to fit us. Melinda was so sweet, warm and kind, we felt like we've known her for years. She truly helped make our ceremony special and beautiful with tears and laughter! I would definitely recommend her to everyone!
