Passionate about making your special day perfect!  

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!

Melinda is available for:

Spiritual Ceremonies, Interfaith Ceremonies, Jewish Ceremonies, Nondenominational Ceremonies, Same-Sex Ceremonies, Vow Renewal Ceremonies, Formal or Informal Ceremonies, Large or Intimate Ceremonies

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.

My name is Vicki and my husband and I attended a wedding where Rabbi Melinda performed the service. When she first approached, it was if a beaitiful light was seen. The ceremony was wonderful as her words were from her heart and not read from prepared writings. It felt like she was part of the wedding as opposed to someone just officiating. I was so proud to see such a beautiful, kind a x well spoken woman be the rabbi.
Rabbi Melinda Bernstein responded with the following comments:
Vicki, it's always an honor to serve as wedding officiant for couples who seek a light hearted Rabbi. It's a bigger honor to receive your dear words of reflection. Thank you Vicki from within my heart of hearts!

Melinda was professional, funny and flexible. We found her online and immediately knew she was perfect for us. We had arranged to have a very small service on the beach in Del Ray. Because we live in New York she also sent me information of restaurants, florists in the area which was helpful. We had many texts which she always responded to in a timely manner and then had a phone conversation when the time was right. When we had to change the venue from the beach to the hospital chapel due to an illness with my father in law she was there bright and early with chocolates in hand. Everyone thought she was funny and professional and it was just what we had hoped for. We highly recommend Melinda. Scott and Anna Rose Lieberman

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. Let me also point out that we are not religious and that Melinda calls herself a "free-flowing Rabbi" so she worked out perfectly, even though we did not have a religious ceremony. Highly recommend her!
Rabbi Melinda Bernstein responded with the following comments:
So touched to read your beautiful words Stacey. It was my honor to officiate and witness the beauty of you and Dustin! In beauty and blessings, Melinda

I have to give Rabbi Melinda 5 stars! She was kind and considerate. She even made me a beautiful Chuppa in a flash because the venue I was using didn't have any (and neither did I). She showed up promptly and ready to say the most beautiful words to my guests. She also spent a lot of time in the weeks before the wedding askingme what type of ceremony that I wanted and what kind of Ketuba I wanted. She even met with my parents one night to include them in the process. Thank you Rabbi Melinda! Amy Edelman- Caputo
