I gave a negative review for someone on this website, Dr. Michelle Gamm, and her response was full of lies. Here is her response:

This lady was referred to me from a wedding that I performed last year. She demanded that I give her a free meeting and I let her know that the $200 wedding package does not include a meeting. I let her know that I would be happy to perform her wedding ceremony for $200 or she could upgrade to my $350 wedding package which includes the meeting and rehearsal. I tried working with her on multiple occasions but, she still demanded a free meeting. I e-mailed her some wedding information and tried working with her again by doing a phone or online meeting. She then canceled and demanded that I return the non-refundable deposit. I had turned down business because, I had reserved the date and time specifically for her. Wedding vendors always require a non-refundable deposit which is standard to reserve that time. I have never required or will never require any bride or groom to sign a contract with me. I never told her that she had to pay me the full amount and never made her pay me the full amount. Our relationship was great until she demanded a free meeting at a later date.
Dr. Rev. Gamm

NOW, i found this lady on the internet, she was NOT a referral. She agreed to do the $200 wedding package AND a meeting if I put down an extra $50 dollars. I did so, and then changed my mind about her because she was not answering my calls and was making it difficult to meet. Here are the emails she sent me:

We will also contact your work, Clearwater Bay Marketing, and let them know
about your harassing calls from their work phone to the church made by you.  We
have all of the call records from Clearwater Bay Marketing and the messages that
you left from Clearwater Bay marketing which we could submit to your employer as
well.  Our lawyer is also looking into what we could do here as well.  Thanks.
