Your wedding day is one of the most cherished occasions in your life. And your wedding ceremony will help set the tone for the kind of life that you, as a couple, envision for yourselves. Finding the right Celebrant to help create a personalized and meaningful ceremony is an integral part of making your special day that perfect occasion to remember forever.

As a certified wedding officiant and contemporary non-denominational minister, I believe that each ceremony should reflect the distinctive needs, beliefs, and values of the couple. Guided by your input, I will custom-create a beautiful and intimate ceremony that will express your shared vision and hopes for the new life you are starting together. Because you have the complete freedom of choice to publicly express your deep love and commitment, your ceremony will be one-of-a-kind that you “own.”

To find out more about how I can help you plan the perfect wedding ceremony that will provide wonderful memories throughout your life together, please feel free to contact me by phone or email. I will be happy to arrange for an “no-obligation" consultation to discuss your ceremony requirements. Read less

Bari Braun literally saved the day for us.
Hurricane Sandy was just a few days before our wedding in Brooklyn, NY. The aftermath of the storm left our wedding details in chaos, but we were unable to cancel. Our officiant was stuck in California and would not be able to make it. We found Bari just a day before the wedding, and she graciously agreed to be our officiant. She had no power in her home all week, and it was impossible to get gas in NJ where she was coming from. Despite all of the challenges, she was there and the ceremony was just perfect. Our guests are still commenting on how special and personal it was. We are so grateful for Bari, she is a lovely and warm officiant. We recommend her highly!

If you are looking for a celebrant who is flexible, a great listener, and a wonderful person, you should look no further than Bari! The first time we spoke with her, we knew she was the right celebrant for us. She had a gentle, yet vibrant demeanor, and put us at ease right away. It was very evident that Bari had many years of experience working as a celebrant—she came prepared with a comprehensive package that helped us pick and choose our wedding traditions. It was also helpful that she was very knowledgeable about the processes and legalities of getting married—that would have been so overwhelming for us to do on our own!



Most importantly, Bari understood everything that we wanted and got right to work on creating a beautiful ceremony. It was the perfect balance of lighthearted and sentimental, and truly reflected our own personalities. I was so impressed that she really took the time to get to know us as a couple and learn about the story of our marriage so thoroughly. As a result, she delivered a wonderful ceremony that conveyed everything about our relationship that we wanted to share with our loved ones. I even cried when I read the first draft of the ceremony that she sent us, it was just so meaningful and touching. We couldn’t be happier with Bari and would highly recommend her to any couple. She obviously loves what she does and was willing to go the extra mile to make sure that we got our perfect ceremony. Our guests raved about what a wonderful ceremony we had—we couldn’t thank Bari enough!

Bari was a great listener and allowed my fiance and I decide what we wanted for our wedding ceremony. Everything was catered specifically to us and we never felt we were being led to in a certain direction. Bari is also incredibly kind and allowed us to thoroughly express our choices and ideas, nothing was ever off-limits.

Bari Braun did her job very well during the ceremony. She has a very nice voice, a warm and cheerful smile, and talks at a very comfortable tone. All my guests who have talked to her like her very much!

She gave me a good plan in the begining (ring exchange, vows, etc) and helped me modify things to what I want (rose ceremoney, poems, etc). She fulfilled all my request and gave me a lot of suggestions. I was so busy on work and she had a good timeline in her mind and kept reminding me about what needs to be done.

I am so glad that I had her at my wedding. Overall, I would recommend Bari to other Bride-to-be.

Reasonably priced and tried to make the ceremony special. We had a few snafus during the ceremony that could have been fixed if we had a rehersal which she stated that she did not recomend. Very polite.
