Ordained by the Universal Life Church as a non-denominational minister, it is my heart's desire to bless your wedding with the essence of your individuality, personality and commitment. I am here to truly listen to who you are, and help you create a ceremony that reflects you both, and also moves those witnessing your marriage to deepen their commitment and appreciation of their own relationships. So much emphasis is placed on pre-wedding parties and the reception, that often the most meaningful aspect of the day is not given much thought. It is my goal to help you relax and enjoy the sacred union and vows at the core of marriage... the wedding ceremony itself. I am available for unlimited emails, and spend many hours personally scripting your individual ceremony. Guests always remark that they thought I had known the couple their whole lives, due to the personal, fun and romantic essence of them that is portrayed. Read less

Barbra delivered the most beautiful wedding ceremony. She created such a thoughtful, sweet, humorous, and joyous atmosphere. She made me feel comfortable throughout the ceremony. Her kindness and graciousness are touching.

It's my pleasure to review Barbra Mousouris. She was our officiant at our wedding last year and she was nothing short of incredible. She spent time getting to know Jonathan and I as individuals as well as a couple which resulted in a ceremony that was filled with intimacy, romance, laughter and tears. You could feel the deep emotion Jonathan and I have for each other from the words Barbra articulated. We hired an officiant but walked away with a family friend and when we renew our vows in 25 years, we will call Barbra! <3

We were so lucky to find Barbra to officiate our wedding. It must have been meant to be, because we called her in April (our wedding was in July) and she was booked throughout most of the summer but had our date available. When we met her, I knew we had a perfect match. She is so warm and made us feel at ease. She did an amazing job at our ceremony and we had several guests comment on how much they liked her. I would definitely recommend Barbra!

In all honesty, we are brought to tears when we think of how wonderful Barbra is. Barbra is, by far, the most loving officiant we met. She took the time to get to know us both personally and as a couple, and wrote the most touching, intimate, beautiful ceremony for our wedding. In a time when things were stressful and very busy, Barbra was calm, caring and very much helpful. We cannot imagine having had anyone else perform our ceremony and become part of our lives. We are in touch even now, and she truly is a part of our family now.

Barbra was amazing. There simply are not enough words to express how the perfection of our day was eased along by having her officiate. She was always happy to make suggestions and available at any time I needed her. This was so important, having her helped keep me grounded. And she put together the most romantic, and personalized ceremony - friends and family continue to tell us that it was the best ceremony they've been a part of. We shined through every word - Barbra is the best!!

My husband and I can't praise Barbra enough for her dedication and commitment to our wedding day. She took so much time to get to know us and it was very apparent during our ceremony. Barbra made our guests laugh and she made them cry, the two emotions we were hoping for. We've had so many compliments on our ceremony and it was all because of Barbra and her passion for bringing people together through marriage. Thank you, Barbra, for contributing to our special day!

Barbra was wonderful! We had a friend who was to be our officiant but unfortunately had to cancel three weeks before our wedding. Barbra stepped in and did a wonderful job. She was helpful, friendly, easy going and it was truly a pleasure having her with us that day.

I've seen many uncomfortable and bad wedding ceremonys. Attention to detail and caring about what you do is important when you are the officiant at somebody's most special day. I can't tell you how many weddings I have been to and the officiant couldn't get the couple's names correct. Barb took the time to real get to know us on a personal note and that really made our ceremony feel relaxed and comfortable for everyone. I would recommend her to anybody who is getting married. She really has a vested interest in making your day special and making sure it goes smoothly. I was comforted to know she was going to be at the alter making sure things went according to plan.
