A Little Bit About me ….

“So this is love; so this is what makes life divine” -Cinderella

You found love and you’re ready to take the next step, how exciting!? I would be honoured to help you create the most divine experience. I have a high-level sense of detail and would love to bring that into your special day. 

My Personal Story ….

I was born in Etobicoke, Ontario, and grew up on a farm located in the small town of Dundalk, Ontario. However I have lived in St. Catharines, Longlac, Guelph, and now reside in Ottawa. 

My Family ….

I have been happily married for over 12 years to my soul mate, Bryan. We have one son together, Levi and one fur baby, Diesel.

My Life Experience ….

I’ve spent my whole career in the air transportation industry and have a big love for aviation. I’ve also dabbled in graphic design, teaching, and blogging. I am passionate about helping people in any capacity I can. I am often found volunteering at my local church and in my community. 

My Interests & Passions ….

I love spending time with my family and my dog.
I have a slight passion/obsession… with all things Rae Dunn & Disney. Which you will notice if you check out my Instagram page!
I also always seem to have my hands in a crafty DIY or a big DIY like redoing my kitchen or something crazy like that.
I love to travel and can’t wait to get back on a jet to a beach!

Melissa was a joy to work with. She explained everything in a polite and friendly phone call months in advance of our wedding day. She helped me navigate the user-friendly website and filed our marriage license and helped me apply for the certificate in clear and concise instructions. I really appreciated her efficiency, professionalism and friendliness!
Stephanie & Tyler

I met Melissa at a wedding show and knew instantly I wanted her to be put officiant. She was so friendly and lovely to work with the entire process. She worked with us to help make our ceremony personal and funny, and played into the "Hallmark" movie of it all getting married around Christmas. Everyone kept raving about how great she was! Everyone thought she was a close friend with how well she talked about our story and our interactions with her! Which speaks volumes on how good of a job she did. Enduring promises was a super easy Organization to go through and an easy online portal to really customize our ceremony.
