Getting married just may be the most planetary, real-deal, sincerely meaningful, and everlasting thing you'll ever do.

What if your ceremony could reflect that? What if it was totally you, from the first words to the epic kiss? If you actually felt connected to everyone there..to the awe of the moment?

Curious? My reviews are a great place to start. Check out my photos here or wander over to my website for more detail.

If this feels like the way you want to enter married life, please get in touch.



P.S: I respond to personal requests promptly and to bulk/blanketed requests as I have time. Read less

Barbara blew us away. We are wedding photographers ourselves so we had seen Barbara officiate at other weddings — we've photographed nearly 200 weddings and Barbara's ceremonies are absolutely the best.
So we knew when we began planning our own wedding that we had to have her design our ceremony for us. She is totally together, she gets us and what we wanted, and she delivered a ceremony that is so perfectly us. I could not be more pleased.
If you want your ceremony to be really special, unique, and tailored to fit the two of you as a couple, get Barbara.

From the first Skype call we had with Barbara, sitting in a hostel room in Ecuador we knew that we had found the perfect celebrant for us. Our ceremony was one that naturally evoked a lot of emotion. Many of our guests had only recently learned about the news of our relationship and engagement. In a way, our ceremony was our grand "coming out" to our friends and family. We wanted to tell our guests the story of us falling in love, in a way that kept them engaged and involved throughout the whole ceremony. Barbara knew just how to do this, crafting a one-of-a-kind ceremony that left our guests gushing that it was hands down the best wedding ceremony they have ever attended. Her gorgeous story telling left words like 'powerful' and 'moving' being used to describe the day. Even guests with seasoned poker faces were brought to tears by the words Barbara had crafted to perfection. She is a captivating speaker that really engages with your guests. She is funny and creative, nurturing the roughest of ideas into something beautiful.

If you want a totally unique ceremony that leaves your guests amazed and enthralled then look no further. You've found the best in Barbara.

It was a second wedding for both of us. We both have grown children and extended family, and we wanted the wedding to help everyone see what our relationship was all about. Barbara helped us clarify what we wanted and craft a truly unique and personal ceremony. From the feedback we received people were touched, informed, and delighted with the result. From the our perspective, the ceremony was comfortable, light, joyful, and very authentic to who we are. Barbara listened to our needs and re-assured us when we were feeling anxious about a variety of things. She has great ideas, and a warm and engaging personality. We literally have nothing negative to say about the whole experience, it was fun, joyful, and fulfilling.

Barbara was amazing I cannot think of enough descriptive words to describe her awesomeness. She wrote an entire ceremony for us from scratch. She involved everyone at our wedding and made it feel like it was not just an event between the two of us, but a community event. If you are thinking of hiring her as your officiant DO IT you will not regret having a one of a kind ceremony tailored to your personalities and wants.

Working with Barbara was a delight. We contacted her within 3 weeks of our elopement weekend and she bent over backward to ensure she provided the ceremony we imagined. She was extremely responsive, very flexible, attentive to our needs, and thoughtful in helping us consider details we hadn't planned. She was full of fantastic recommendations and referrals, several of which we used. She's GLBT friendly and made us feel accepted and valued as a same-sex couple. Everyone present raved about how well she facilitated our ceremony. We couldn't have been happier with having Barbara officiate our wedding and we would quickly recommend her to anyone looking for a fun, unique, and meaningful ceremony!

Barbara couldn't have been more perfect for our wedding. Though we planned slightly in advance, we essentially eloped. She was no pressure from the start, her greatest interest was in ensuring she was a good fit for us. While we did our best to share what was important to us, I'm certain Barbara's intuitiveness played a part in her capturing the essence of what was important to the both of us. She picked the the perfect place - a park at the ocean's edge where a freshwater stream met flowed into the sea with snow covered mountains in the background - it was stunning! She created a ritual and ceremony that touched our hearts and souls and we will be forever grateful. Thank you Barbara for shaping our memories and honoring who we are with such grace - you truly are a blessing.

I don't know how to write a review about Barbara without sounding clichet but all i want to say is that Barbara made our wedding so special and lovely. She's such a professional person to work with and she made the whole process easy and smooth for us. She was really dedicated and made sure we were comfortable with everything. Our ceremony was so genuine, down to earth and she helped making it that way. She is such a nice person and we were so lucky to share our wedding with her. She did her best to help us concerning the weather, she did some scouting to find the best location with a shelter in case it rained. I highly recommend her for any couple who wants to have a special wedding ceremony. Thanks a lot Barbara !!

Barbara was a fantastic officiant. We worked with her to craft a personalized ceremony and it turned out absolutely amazing. She met with us several times over skype and after a few drafts back and forth we had a ceremony that was 100% representative of who we are as a couple. She is friendly, easy to work with and definitely knows a lot about creating a meaningful ceremony. She also was a great speaker and presented the ceremony very well. We highly recommend her!

Planning a wedding from afar can be really challenging and intimidating. After our first conversation with Barbara, we knew that she was a great fit and would have our best interests at heart with the planning and ceremony - the most important part! She was wonderful to work with and we're so happy that she was a part of our day.
