    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.

    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!

*On January 10th, 2018 I began using my middle name Bracha (which means blessings) in my public name. I am passionate about blessing love on your special day! I specialize in all types of weddings and funerals. I will joyously perform a customized wedding ceremony rich with love, life and humor at a location of your choice, just the way you want it…barefoot on the beach, at a resort, at a nature park, or simply in your backyard. Personable, professional and easy to work with, I have excellent references and love my role as wedding officiant and life celebrant! If you want a Ceremony that brings out the specialness of you and your beloved, think about utilizing Melinda for your next Ceremony. As an ordained rabbi and proud mother and grandmother, I know that family and faith are at the forefront of every endeavor. I have been a spiritual guide, a yoga teacher, a dance teacher and a life coach. I have spoken on the international stage about love and relationships, published a book and supported couples in premarital counseling and on the other end of the spectrum, helped many people through performing funeral services and the trying times of mourning and grieving. I bring a sense of professionalism to every ceremony and my attention to detail puts all those involved at ease.

I will engage your Ceremony with the deepest reverence of loving, peaceful blessings, which by the way… is what my middle hebrew name translates to. Whether you desire peaceful blessings, unique, creative or simple ceremonies, I would love to humbly serve you.

    • 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.
