Congratulations on your engagement and thanks for visiting my page. My name is Rev. Dr. Barbara Roberts, and I believe that what you say to your beloved at your wedding is important enough to require some thought and effort. You will design your own perfect marriage ceremony, from an intimate wedding with just the two of you, to a gathering of all of your family and friends.

We can meet via phone (1-706-383-2480), e-mail (info@AlternativeWeddingsbyRevRoberts.com) or my website (AlternativeWeddingsbyRevRoberts.com) to customize the perfect ceremony that will reflect your own spiritual preference. You can choose one of the ready-made ceremonies from the website, or create your own out of the different parts that are under "Wedding Vows". It will then be personalized, printed up on appropriate paper, and put into a white folder to be used at your wedding. This keepsake copy will then be yours to have after all is said and done.

As a non-denominational minister since becoming ordained in 1993, I have officiated at hundreds of weddings now, both traditional and interfaith. No pre-marital counseling is required. My residence is across the valley from Amicalola Falls, one of north Georgia's most beautiful state parks, even though it's an Ellijay address. You can have me travel easily to Dawsonville, Dahlonega, Ellijay or any other surrounding town in this area to officiate. ALL couples are welcome including LGBT. Read less

Rev. Dr. Barbara Roberts is such a pleasure. She made our intimate cabin wedding ceremony perfect. What attracted us to her was her professionalism and kindness. I loved that she supported our ideas for our ceremony and we were able to incorporate our own personal vows as well all while using her examples as a guideline. She was more than happy to make any changes needed which made our day stress free, intimate and lovely. We made the best decision by choosing her as our officiant for a day we will never forget!

Where can we start? Rev. Barbara Roberts performed our elopement ceremony and we were very pleased! From the time that I first e-mailed her, through the date of the wedding, she kept in contact with me elimitating some of my pre-wedding stresses. And, she made both my partner and I very comfortable during our ceremony. If you're looking for a personable Officiant, who will go above and beyond, Rev. Roberts is your lady! We can't thank her enough for her services and hope that you too have the same experience with her.

Regards,

John-M. (and Ben) :-)

We had an absolutely wonderful experience with Barbara. She was very professional and helpful during the planning process, and she also had a very personal, warm touch that made dealing with her a pleasure. She is very communicative and responsive and is there to help in any way to help you build the perfect ceremony and met with us two times to prepare. She also has some ceremony examples to get your creativity flowing or if you would rather use something already created. We wrote our own, which was quite unique, and she was encouraging and accepting of it. We really enjoyed getting to know Barbara, and she helped counsel us on wedding traditions and ideas and used her vast experience to help us make our big day even better. Having her with us during this big event was wonderful, and we enjoyed her being there to join us as well as visiting with her after the ceremony. This was an overall fantastic experience with a very knowledgeable and professional individual, and we could not recommend her more for your special day.

Thanks so much Lia for your kind words. Your wedding will be one that I remember for years to come, maybe because of doing the "rehearsal" by the Coke and ice machines in the hallway of Amicalola Lodge. Y'all were so flexible and understanding, and a pleasure to do business with. -Barbara

Barbara was wonderful for us to work with; she helped me with planning where to have the ceremony; and made it simple, as I had requested. She worked well with our small children, and did an excellent job.

Thanks so much for your kind words. Amicalola Falls is my favorite place to have weddings since it is my backyard, literally. I'm so glad the weather was kind to us as well. Overall, it turned out to be a lovely day.

Revered Dr Barbara Roberts was amazing. Her demeanor is so welcoming and open that it feels like meeting an old friend. She could not have been more patient or flexible. Her reading voice is lovely -- perfect benevolent gravitas. Highly recommend.

I wanted someone that could easily handle our mixed view wedding. My family is very southern Baptist and his was not religious. I wanted something that was more spiritual and about us and the world around us than about a sermon. Rev. Roberts was amazing. She met with us before the wedding to help create our vows and made it easy. Our wedding ceremony was a hit, everyone thought it was beautiful. I would definitely recommend Rev. Roberts as she was very pleasant to work with, affordable, and took the time to get to know us as a couple. We are so thankful to have found her.
