Rabbi Melinda Bracha
Melinda performed the wedding ceremony for my wife and I in Riviera Maya, Mexico and did a fantastic job. Melinda was always very responsive to messages, flexible throughout the planning process, and allowed us to customize our ceremony to our liking. Melinda was warm, friendly, and professional and did an outstanding job. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a wedding officiant.Feb 13, 2018Melinda B.'s reply
Craig! I loved performing and traveling with you and your family. Thank you so much for your kind words of praise. <3 Blessings, Melinda
Rabbi Melinda was definitely a blessing for our event. She was punctual, laid back, excited, and the guests could not stop talking about how amazing the ceremony was. She hit it out of the park with the perfect amount of emotional, laughter, and heartfelt honesty. Thank you!Sep 25, 2017Melinda B.'s reply

- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I learn about the couple during a 15-30 minute pre-interview to briefly discuss what the couple wants for their ceremony to see if I am a good fit for them. When we discover that I am a good fit, we arrange for a deposit to be made and I hold the date for them. I send via email, a list describing the ceremony elements and a week prior to the wedding, we discuss ceremony elements and I also gather details about their romance, their lives together so that I can personalize the wedding.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I am a Certified Life Coach, Certified Yoga Teacher, Ordained as a Reform Rabbi and also hold a Doctorate of Life Counseling in the International University of the Essence Community of Qumran. The trainings led me to write my books: The Roadmap To A Prosperous & Purposeful Life and Seven Steps To A Peaceful Heart After Divorce, (I was married once for 21 years) as well as my publication: The Sacred Roadmap.
