Barbara was very personable and compassionate. She made us feel really comfortable with the format we chose. She also did not try to force anything and catered to our needs. She was charismatic and present throughout the entire ceremony and gave us more than we asked.

Rev. Barbara was an absolute gift to us. From the moment that we chatted on the phone and heard her calming voice and through the E-mails that she took the time to send during her own personal vacation, we felt like we had always known her. She is absolutely in the right profession.

The wedding outline that she helped to create for us included beautiful poetry and words that we can only describe as divinely written. She was extremely flexible in her ideas and in the development of our ceremony. It was a JOY to work with her planning it all and watching everything magically unfold.

We had initially wanted a simple ceremony with only two witnesses present, but once we saw her final plan come together, we could not keep any of it to ourselves. We ended up inviting family and friends from 400 miles away to share the beautiful gift that Rev. Barbara provided for us.

We feel so incredibly blessed to have found Rev. Barbara and worked with her. I am certain that anyone who has the pleasure of doing the same will benefit greatly from the experience!

Rev. Barbara came at the suggestion of our wedding planner and was absolutely wonderful to work with. She really helped my wife and I create a ceremony that was perfectly tailored to our wishes. She is warm, friendly and very genuine, and we loved her from the moment we first met her. She was great at correspondence and provided guidance along the way. Being that my wife and I aren't very religious, she tailored our ceremony to a more secular, modern style with subtle hints of tradition sprinkled here and there. She provided great suggestions and input without overstepping and took everything we said to heart. Our ceremony was short and sweet and exactly what we wanted.

Reverend Barbara was wonderful. In the run up to our wedding she gave her time generously to ensure everything was just right. She took a genuine interest in us and in making sure the ceremony matched what we were trying to achieve. Barbara even took time to meet our wedding party and close family ahead of the wedding.

We also benefited from her guidance, driven by her great respect and understanding of this process. In the rehearsals she reminded us when to pause and take it all in, she also gave us suggestions and options for certain aspects, but supported us to think deeper about other elements, such as our vows.

On the day of the wedding we had to change our venue at the last minute due to weather. Reverend Barbara kept everyone calm and ensured the ceremony remained on track. Knowing how important family is to us she suggested a third family member could sign our license - we wouldn't even have known to ask!

We built a great relationship with Barbara through the process and cannot recommend her highly enough.

I would recommend Barbara to anyone looking for a personal ceremony. She is very respectful and understanding of anything you decide to do. She is full of guidance and advice also becoming a wedding planner. Barbara truly is full of spirit and it is amazing how just being near her really makes you feel calm, and able to relax. She has a good heart, making our ceremony an amazing memory for us and all our family. Our wedding didn't go quit as planned but the ceremony was flawless, and she is super friendly. She stayed and talked with everyone before leaving, she is truly an angel!!

Barbara was amazing! We had a really bad experience with the first officiant we had booked with and a friend of mine gave me Barbara's name. She had used her for her wedding and had nothing but great things to say. I have to say, I was very glad to have found her and only wish I would have found her sooner. She was so accomodating and such a sweet person. Highly recommend her to anyone looking for someone to officiate their wedding.
