Congratulations on your engagement!

My name is Barbara Schwarck. I am an ordained, non-denominational minister who has the honor of working with couples of all kinds to create their meaningful, personally tailored and unforgettable wedding ceremonies.

I understand how complicated planning a wedding can be, as well as how important it is to find the perfect person to perform and share in this once-in-a-lifetime experience. If you are looking for someone to guide you through this process with ease and grace, you have come to the right place.

Through My Happy Day, I represent a group of exceptional, experienced officiants who perform interfaith, spiritual and secular ceremonies throughout the greater Pittsburgh, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C. areas. So if I am not available on your wedding date, I can connect you with one of my colleagues – who may turn out to be your other perfect match on your wedding day.

After you peruse our site, please don’t hesitate to contact us. I look forward to answering your questions and to helping you to create your happy day. You can reach me at barbara@happyday.net or call me at 412.242.3971. Read less

Susan Talbott was our officiant for our wedding on October 4, 2014. She was absolutely wonderful, she made the rehearsal and ceremony a breeze. As the bride, I had no worries about the ceremony as I knew it was in good hands. We met with Susan and emailed her several times prior to the ceremony. She was prompt with her responses and was always willing to help us in any way she could. She made our ceremony so personal, stress free, and relaxed, just like we wanted.

My husband and I do not attend church regularly and felt uncomfortable approaching a local church and asking their pastor to officiate our wedding. Rev. Susan Talbott was recommended to me by a friend and as soon as my husband and I met with her, we knew it was a perfect match! She really gets to know you as individuals and as couple and makes you feel so comfortable! She kept in touch during the months leading up to our wedding and even asked me for a list of names and relationships of people who would be at our rehearsal so that she could get a head start on learning who was who. At the rehearsal she began by getting to know all of my close family and friends and welcoming them all. She helped to calm all of our nerves and keep everything organized. On the day of the wedding, again, she helped to keep us all calm and our ceremony went on without a hitch! I cannot say enough about Susan as a person and how perfect our ceremony was! She even stayed after the dinner into the reception and had fun with all of my guests! I would absolutely recommend her to all!

Thank you Susan for helping to make our day so special!

Susan Talbott was an absolute delight to work with....from the time my husband and I first met with her (after we got engaged), we instantly felt a connection with her and knew she was the perfect fit for our wedding ceremony. She is a warm, down-to-earth, generous, and incredibly intelligent individual who truly listens to clients' needs. We were looking for a spiritual, personal and Christian-based ceremony and she came through with flying colors in terms of the ceremony content and flow. Our families and friends really enjoyed her company and we plan on keeping in touch with her from here on out. We would highly recommend Susan to anyone looking for a wedding officiant.

I am not a man of ceremony, nor one to invest time in what many would find important as traditions. In my senior years of life I married for the first time a few weeks ago in a Same-Sex Relationship. My interests was our bond and not a ceremony. My first consideration for the marriage process was a license offered in PA, called a Self Uniting License ( nicknamed Quaker Marriage) but friends pushed that we should have the marriage officiated. We found Barbara Schwark on My Happy Day website. As the Officiant, what she brought to our ceremony, made it memorable beyond any expectation. She took the time to meet and formed a genuine sense of us as individuals and as a couple. She brought out those characteristics in the ceremony which made those moment memorable. She turned what I was viewing as a necessary legal process into a feeling experience we will always remember.

I cannot speak highly enough of Barbara and My Happy Day! Barbara married my husband and I on a beautiful Saturday at the Greendance Winery in an outdoor, natural amphitheater. She truly captured both of our unique and polar personalities and religions and she united us two in a romantic, flowing, and peaceful ceremony.

Rather than pour sands together or light a candle, we chose to paint a picture together. Although new to Barbara, she immediately embraced the idea and wrote a beautiful piece as we painted our canvas! After we had finished and walked back to the center, a gust of wind blew our paining over, smearing it in the grass. Everyone gasped in horror, but Barbara quickly jested that "that's life!" and everyone laughed and smiled!

She was always flexible and offered many suggestions and advice. She always responded quickly and precisely, answering all of our questions. We met a couple times in advance to prepare. She then conducted an efficient rehearsal at the winery and joined us for our rehearsal dinner!

Above and beyond all, she made us feel so comfortable, as if we had known her for years. Her professionalism and casual, comforting demeanor eased my nerves every time I spoke with her; as a stressed-out bride, I cannot thank her enough for that!!

Once we decided to be married in our home and all of our family could be there with us - I had exactly 2 weeks to plan the wedding! I called many magistrates and went on-line to find an officiant that would accommodate this last minute wedding request. My search led me to Barbara - who was very flexible and very interested in finding out just what we wanted for our wedding day. She arranged to meet with us one week prior and during our meeting was able to gather personal information and sentiments that we wanted to include in the ceremony.
We were very pleased with her professionalism, and ability to work with us and our family on our special day.

Barbara was nothing short of amazing!! Our original plans were going to make our wedding very simple and humble, but with Barbara’s support and great ideas, it turned out to be the most magical time of our lives. It was still a small and intimate wedding, but Barbara’s words made it a delightful ceremony. She was very accommodating when we told her we wanted to get married within one week and also when we changed the time of the ceremony at the very last minute. We were so busy trying to get everything together for the big day that didn’t have time to write our own vows so she helped us with that as well. She did an excellent job overall. We laughed, we cried, we had a great time. We feel very lucky to have found Barbara because she made an already special occasion, exceptional and unique. We feel lucky as well because we call her now our friend and we will recommend her for anyone that plans to get married in the future!!!

We were looking for someone who was flexible and insightful in helping us plan what kind of ceremony we wanted and Barbara was very helpful is this regard. Her service and professionalism was excellent, she was easy to get in touch with when we had questions with planning, and we received much positive feedback about the ceremony. We were very happy to have worked with Barbara and would recommend her for the variety of reasons listed above.

Barbara was the glue that held our wedding ceremony together, it was perfect. She is genius- we had perfect ceremony content. She's extremely flexible regardless of any situation, religion or venue. Her patience of bride-zillas are also very appreciated! We received countless comments and positive feedback from our guests regarding Barbara. Not to mention she's a great dancer!

If you want to have a wedding ceremony where your family and friends ask where did you find that minister, then follow with comments like "she was awesome" and "that was one of the best ceremonies I've ever witnessed;" then you would want Barbara Schwarck to officiate!! How personal and comfortable and special the whole process was; and people still talk about how great the ceremony was!! I think you're getting that I can highly recommend her without hesitation!!!

Hiring Susan from My Happy Day was the best decision we made! Our wedding ceremony was the highlight of our wedding day! The day was full of stress and anxiety with so many of our vendors not coming through as they had promised, but Susan was just wonderful and fulfilled her role as our officiant beyond what we could have ever hoped for. She met with us separately before the ceremony and said the most beautiful and calming prayer, and then proceeded to officiate the most eloquent, personal, and meaningful ceremony... Looking back on that day we still go right to those moments on the staircase with Susan. We are are so thankful that on a day that so much went wrong, the most important part - the ceremony - was so perfect for us! We are so thrilled that we found her!!!

"As an interfaith couple, we took the search for the right officiant very seriously. After an extensive search, Barbara proved to be the perfect fit. She understood both of our religious backgrounds, as well as the nuances of what they meant to each of us, and to our families. She expertly guided us through creating a ceremony that interwined our traditions and reflected our personalities, individually and as a couple. She also provided unique insights and resources, including the idea to give our parents and close friends roles in the ceremony, and lending us some unique ceremony texts to inspire us when we decided to write our vows together. The result was a beautiful, meaningful, one-of-a-kind ceremony that gave our guests a window into who we are as people and our love for eachother. Numerous guests have raved that it was the most engaging and emotionally touching ceremony they've ever attended. We have so much love and gratitude for Barbara - she continues to be a source of comfort and wisdom as we build our life togehter, and has a rare gift for helping people articulate the best side of themsevles to the world."

Barbara was wonderfully accommodating to our needs! We asked for a non-secular ceremony and that is exactly what we got; both of our relatively religious families could not have been happier with the way the ceremony was handled. She really took the time to get to know us so it was not at all generic. In fact, I have been to some church ceremonies where the person officiating doesn't even get the couples names and information right.

We could not have been happier!

We had Susan Talbott as our officiant. She was very nice and sought to learn about us and our families and wedding party before officiating. The planning stage went very well. However, she included many extra things in the ceremony that we did not discuss and that we were not too happy about. We wanted a 15 minute ceremony and it was at least 30 minutes.
