When Rev Mel arrived at our outdoor wedding he immediately brought a peaceful calm. We had a traditional Christian wedding and he did a beautiful job. It was an amazing moment for my wife and I and Mel was just the perfect person to give us our moment before God. While standing with Mel waiting for my bride to walk down the isle I whispered to Mel that I needed to get into control of my emotions, his reply was, "Why would you do that? Let your emotions show" Those simple words helped me to have a moment with my wife that we will never forget. I highly recommend Rev Mel

Rev Mel officiated my daughter's wedding in Stevenson, WA. The couple was offered choices for the vows and the ceremony turned out exactly how they wanted it to be. Rev Mel was great to work with, showed up early and performed a wonderful ceremony. I recommend contacting Rev Mel if you are looking for someone who will care about you and your family.

Thank you Reverend Mel - An Eventective User from Oregon City, OR

In all the midst of all the excitement and celebration of our wedding planning, I knew that the ceremony and vows had to be perfect and unique. Our love story is extraordinary, and our blended family is too. I was worried that we might not find someone engaging and fun, and really willing to work with me (us) to create the perfect ceremony...when I met Reverend Mel, my concern vanished. I was sure immediately that he was the right guy for the job. He offered wonderful, experienced advice and helped us incorporate our own flare and create the perfect blend of fun and romance as we said "I do!". I could not imagine a better outcome! I am confident in recommending him to officiate your big day!

Mel was the best officiant we could have asked for. From the time we first met, something just clicked and we knew he was the one for our special day. Our ceremony was beautiful and it was all thanks to him!

We had a super short ceremony, by design, and Rev. Mel helped it flow through without a hitch. Rev. Mel is very warm and sweet in his mannerism. He made sure that we knew exactly what our parts were during the ceremony and officiated beautifully. He went above and beyond, coaching us through the whole process from the very first moment that we met down to the very last form that we needed to make it all legal. He is a very special person and very highly recommended.

Rev Mel, married my son and daughter-in-law 10 days ago at Bell Tower in Boring, Or. The wedding was great, he was very patient, caring and said words to them as he had known them. The words were personalized for both of them and we were all more than pleased.

Reverand Mel was great! Our wedding was planned in a short amount of time and we needed him last minute. Mel was more than happy to assist and was incredibly helpful. He showed up to the chapel early and the ceremony was beautiful. We couldn't of been happier!

Rev Mel Saved Our Big Day! - An Eventective User from Portland, OR

Rev Mel made our day, literally! After our Pastor herniated his disc two days before our wedding, I was blessed to find Rev Mel! He did a wonderful job and was available at short notice. I would recommend him to anyone in the area, absolutely fantastic!

Our Wedding...a Success - An Eventective User from Portland, OR

Mel is a kind soul who is professional, yet personal, full of humor, love, and life. We chose him for our ceremony to officiate and MC. He has a voice that is commanding, yet gentle, something that was needed at times to direct our crowd. Upon meeting at his place to hash out details, his many years of experience in this industry became very apparent. He had lots of recommendations on what works and doesn't work, but was very flexible to incorporate our individual wants. Every ceremony is different and Rev. Mel fully respects that. It was a great experience to work with Mel as he really put us at ease as we were planning this portion of the ceremony. We highly recommend him for your special day...he certainly made ours that much and more.

Wonderful Ceremony, Perfect - An Eventective User from Hillsboro, Oregon

Reverend Mel was completely wonderful. He had sent us hundreds of sample vows that we could cut, copy and paste to make our own. He recommended special little add on ceremonies within our ceremony to include our family and especially our parents. Our ceremony was truly unique. He waited at appropriate moments because I "lost it" 3 times. He even pulled out a hankie for me when I needed it. The Rose ceremony he recommended was the crowning jewel of our ceremony it seems because that's what my and his mother still talk about. Tom thinks the kiss was. Rev Mel did our ceremony exactly as we wanted, hunorous yet traditional yet unique.
