From our first appointment we knew that she was the right person to officiate our ceremony. She just gave us an idea of some of the things she MIGHT say and I was moved to tears. It seemed like she knew who we were as a couple. Reverend Barbara performed a ceremony that was personal and really reflected the love and values we share. The ceremony was so moving, our guests didn't seem bothered by the rain that moved in on our big day. We loved working with her. We are so grateful we found her.

We absolutely loved Reverend Barbara. Our coordinator told us that no one that she has sent to see her ever comes back without booking her, and she was absolutely right. Rev. Barbara made us feel so comfortable right off the bat. She was warm, and totally understood our needs and vision for our ceremony. On the day of our ceremony was just fantastic and we have heard from so many guests that it was the best ceremony they have ever heard. She gave us her advice when we asked and needed it and respected our wished even though we knew our ceremony was going to be a bit longer than usual. I wish she could marry us again every year. What a beautiful person, inside and out, and what a beautiful spirit to marry my husband and I. Her words are something we will never forget.

I can't put into words how thrilled we were with Barbara and her ceremony for our wedding. We were so stressed out about our ceremony and finding an officiant until we met her — and then she made all of our fears go away. Her experience, professionalism, and true love of weddings and marriage are so apparent. She made the process easy and fun, and explained exactly what we needed to do for everything — from how to get the marriage license to how to rehearse walking down the aisle. Her ceremonies are compelling, personal, and memorable (and I say ceremonies because we've seen her twice — she also married our friends!) and she knows how to put both the couple and the crowd at ease. There are many, many wonderful things I can say about her but I'll narrow it down to this: I was really worried about having an officiant we didn't know marry us — it seemed odd to have a stranger perform something so intimate and important. But it was clear to us after our first meeting with Barbara that it would not be a stranger marrying us. She really took the time to get to know us and what we wanted out of our ceremony. After our two meetings with Barbara, having her up there marrying us felt incredibly natural — by that point, she wasn't a stranger, she felt like a friend. We feel very lucky to have had her as our officiant.

I don't even know where to begin with how wonderful Reverend Barbara is! She truly is such an amazingly kind, genuine and lovely person. My husband and I were so very honored to have her as our wedding officiant. We spent time with her in premarital counseling, as well as working on our vows and ceremony outline. Throughout the entire process Reverend Barbara was such a strong support to us and treated us as if we were family. We feel that she truly listened to us, took the time to get to know us and helped us create the most beautiful and memorable part of our entire wedding day. She ensured that both my husband and I felt confident and at ease during the ceremony, touching upon the most important aspects of our love and journey together, while keeping us lighthearted and focused on the beauty of the day. She has a way of speaking that will bring you to tears and fully captures the unique love you have for each other, your family and your friends. Not only is she the best officiant you could ask for, but she is genuinely a wonderful woman. Thank you for such a beautiful ceremony, full of love and happiness! We love you Reverend Barbara and anyone would be more than lucky to have you as their officiant!

Rev. Barbara is a gift! She is beyond lovely. We were going to have a friend marry us until our venue & photographer told us about Barbara. After the first phone conversation, I knew she was the right choice for us. We were truly blessed to have her as our officiant. Both my husband and I are extremely shy. She kept us at ease, made us laugh, and reminded us to breathe! She also did a wonderful job of bringing our daughter into our ceremony, which was very important for us. Our guests and family had nothing but wonderful things to say about our ceremony and Rev. Barbara. She truly made our ceremony special and memorable.

The moment we met Rev. Barbara we knew she was the one we wanted to officiate our wedding. She is simply incredible and has such an amazing sweet soul. She was warm and welcoming. She made us feel right at home, comfortable and like we have known each other for years. Our ceremony was absolutely beautiful because of her. She touched on so many important aspects of our life and love for each other. She had the whole crowd crying. We had many people compliment us on how well she did with the ceremony as well as had people ask for her contact info for future weddings. She was phenomenal! We love her so much!

We HIGHLY RECOMMEND Rev. Barbara!
You will not be disappointed!

Reverend Barbara - a beautiful person inside and out, and an obvious choice to officiate our wedding. She is easy to work with and adaptive to any style or preference. She took the time to listen and get to know us personally, and we found her to be extremely intuitive and comforting during the process of composing our ceremony.

On the day of the wedding, she delivered a service that we are still getting asked about and complimented on, and the warmth and intention she put into her words set the tone for the rest of our evening and celebration. I can't recommend Barbara highly enough for anyone who is seeking to have a heartfelt and highly personalized wedding ceremony.

Rev. Barbara was the perfect person to officiate our wedding! She's a complete professional, available on weekends, and is very thorough - walking you through ever detail of the ceremony. She loves what she does and is reasonably priced to make herself available to couples in love. My husband and I did premarital counseling with her as well, which was not only beyond useful for us as a couple but made our day-of so personal, as she knew us well by then. We received several compliments about Rev. Barbara after the wedding from our guests who were inspired by her words and the words she helped us craft for our own vows. My husband and I hope and plan to continue seeing her for any spiritual guidance we may need or want in years to come!
