My name is Rose Barboza, I live in beautiful Northern California. I have been so blessed to be able to perform marriage ceremonies since 1997. My first wedding I officiated was my nephew’s. I was so honored that he and his fiancé had asked me to perform their marriage ceremony. I enjoyed that day so much, I continue to perform ceremonies year after year. To this day, I still get chills (sometimes even tears) as I pronounce the couple as husband and wife! What a wonderful "job" I have!

If you need an officiant, I can't recommend Rose's services enough! She is one of the nicest and sincerest people I have met in a long time. The ceremony she put together was exactly what my husband and I wanted - personal, eloquent, and romantic.

We have only the highest praise for Rose Barbosa. We live in Illinois and were married in Calistoga, CA. We "met" Rose when we Skyped with her early on in our planning, and we knew right away she was a perfect match for us. She was always quick to answer any questions we had, and she made sure we were happy with the plan for the ceremony by emailing her ideas a few times before our big day. We loved the way Rose made the ceremony personal, instead of generic. We had so many compliments from family and friends about how sweet Rose was and how beautifully the ceremony unfolded. We would give her 10 stars if we could!

Rose was amazing, I feel very fortunate to have such a professional officiate my wedding. She did everything just the way we asked and she was wonderful about calming my preceremony jitters. I found her to be very responsive to my emails and phone calls and you can just tell she really enjoys her job. I would strongly recommend Rose to officiate your wedding, she was fabulous!

Rose is absolutely fabulous! My work schedule was unfortunately terribly hectic during the wedding planning process and Rose was incredibly patient and helpful. We knew as soon as we met her that we wanted her to be our officiant. She has a very calm presence which is exactly what you want on your big day. She helped us modify our vows so they were just perfect for us and had no problem with our quirky requests (our vows may or may not have included a zombie apocalypse reference.) Rose will work with you to create the perfect ceremony for you and significant other. Rose is so amazing that even our family and bridal party were commenting on how wonderful and kind she is. We had such a fantastic wedding that we are already talking about future vow renewals and Rose will absolutely be the one that we call! We highly recommend her!

My partner and I hired Rose Barboza to be the officiant for our wedding last weekend at Paradise Ridge Winery and she did a wonderful job! We decided a month or two before the wedding that we wanted to write our own ceremony and Rose was more than willing to work with whatever it was that we intended to give her and she even offered helpful suggestions. She also was willing to do a rehearsal with us the day before so we could walk through everything and make sure we felt comfortable with it. We really enjoyed working with Rose and highly recommend her!

Rose Barboza was excellent . She got to know us before our wedding by calling us in NY, and speaking to us a few times on the phone. We also filled out some forms that were very helpful in guiding us in how we would like our ceremony to be performed . She did an amazing job. She made us feel comfortable and we felt as if we knew her for years. She was very warm and cared to make our wedding ceremony special and personnel. Everyone who so our video loved how she made our ceremony enjoyable to watch. I would highly recommend Rose.

Rose was (and for potential clients, is) everything one could ask for in a wedding officiant. She was impressively personable, her approach to the ceremony was very individualized for our desires, and her professionalism was unparalleled. What stood out the most was her ability to connect with us during our very first Skype interview - we knew within less than a minute that she was ideal for what we wanted. My wife and I eloped to a nearby redwood forest in Santa Rosa and upon letting Rose know our plan, she immediately tailored her services to that end. The ceremony reflected all of this (our personality, the wedding location, and the context) perfectly.

I cannot recommend Rose enough. Do yourself a favor - alleviate some of your wedding stress by booking her services. She will deliver impeccably, and do it with immense grace and style!

Rose is a great officiant! She is calm, reassuring and confident. Rose has done many weddings, so she has a lot of experience to make your ceremony memorable. She sent us a standard ceremony that we changed to make unique to us, which she then followed word for word. She also got the required paperwork sent in to the county quickly so we were able to pick up copies of our marriage certificate as soon as we got back from our honeymoon.

I am sure there are a number of really good officiant's in the Sonoma/Napa area but we are really glad that we found Rose and her schedule was available for our timing.

She did a great job, was flexible with the ceremony, offered many great suggestions and kept us on track with the what and how to's in getting the license and all the prep work.

She truly loves what she does and has a great personality. She made our elopement ceremony more special.

Planning a wedding is stressful, there is no doubt about that. Finding an officiant turned out to be the easiest part of our wedding planning. Once we connected with Rose we knew that she fit our style and that she would be an excellent professional to work with. That was just the beginning of how she helped ease the stress of our wedding day. Rose made attending our rehearsal a priority (fighting Napa area traffic) and added the organization to the ceremony that put us at ease. After the rehearsal all worries had vanished and we knew that we were ready for our wedding day. Rose kept us focused and guided us through the practice, giving us the ever-important advice that "the ceremony is going to fly by; despite the fact that everyone else is here, this is about you". Now that we are happily married, We are so glad that we remembered that throughout the day. We would highly recommend Rose to any soon to be married couple; she truly made our wedding day memorable.

If you are looking for an Officiant for you wedding, Rose is the one you want. I found Rose online and then I met her at a bridal show, and I knew she was the one that I wanted to have perform our wedding. She was able to put together a wonderful ceremony for us. She gave us lots of samples, and then we picked the parts we wanted for our wedding. She pieced it together perfectly. We wanted a sand ceremony to involve our children and she fit it into our wedding and made it so touching.
We got a lot of positive feedback from our guests, saying that it was a very nice way to bring our two separate families together as one, and she did a great job of wording it. She asked us separately to say something special about our spouse, and she put that into the ceremony and it made it so much more personal to us. She gave us all the information that we needed to go down and get our marriage license, and she did all of the final paperwork and filed it for us. We are so glad that we had Rose perform our ceremony.

Rose went above and beyond to help my husband and I not only on our wedding day but before and after. I could not have asked for anyone better to make our wedding day so special.
She traveled quite a bit to be our officiant and we are so thankful for that.
Her ceremony was the perfect length and since it was so hot outside our guest and my bundle of nerves husband were both thankful for that. I would recommend Rose to anyone! She is amazing!

We had such a great experience with Rose as our officiant at our wedding! We were initially worried about what to include to have a meaningful ceremony for us but after Rose sent us some sample ceremonies and after we were able to talk with her, we saw that we could have a meaningful ceremony that was personal for us! Rose was great about returning emails, phone calls and even using skype with us, since we live out of state. During the ceremony Rose made sure she was talking to me and my husband, making eye contact at appropriate times and not just reading from her notes. The ceremony was beautiful and she made us feel very at ease. She spoke loudly and clearly enough for everyone to hear ( even through the wind!). We were so happy with Rose and would absolutely recommend her to future brides!

Rose's high ratings are no fluke! Rose was the one thing that we didn't have to worry about for our wedding, not that the other vendors weren't great, but Rose just has everything together. She really did have an answer to any question that we had, she was always one step ahead of us!
On a professional level, Rose is amazing. On a personal level, Rose is a person that you feel comfortable talking to about anything. She went through other ceremonies with us, asked us questions about each other, and spoke to us personally (also personally via e-mail) and put together the perfect ceremony.

No joke, if you're looking for the perfect officiant for anything, Rose is the way to go.

Rose was a wonderful officiant! I felt at ease from the first time I met her. She is friendly, professional, organized and easy going. She was flexible and patient with us as we took our time figuring out if we wanted to write our own vows or not. In the end we chose to use the ceremony and vows provided to us by Rose and I am so happy we did. The ceremony was beautiful,and the vows were perfect!! She also took care of submitting the license for us and all if that shenanigans! I highly recommend Rose to other couples she made the whole process that much easier and less stressful and gave us a beautiful and memorable ceremony!!

Deciding who will be the officiate for your wedding is an important decision. Unless you know someone, you are basically choosing a stranger. This was our option and there are so many to choose from. How do you decide? We also needed someone who would be willing to travel to our venue in Fort Bragg.
We looked at so many and since Rose's web site said she performed religious and civil ceremonies, or whatever you would like her to say, we thought we’d check her out. Besides, couples had good things to say about her. We wanted to see what she sounded like, we thought that was important too. After calling and speaking to her, we felt we need look no further. She is very pleasing to listen to and so friendly. We made an appointment to meet with her and found she was just what we were looking for. She is very personable and made us feel like we were old friends but still very professional.
Rose answered all our correspondence promptly and sent updates on the ceremony wording. The ceremony was beautiful and she was truly happy for us, strangers no more.

She has her way of putting a special touch into the vows you share whether you wish to go with traditional or organic. I would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone!!!

Rose was the officiant at my wedding and she was great! My husband and I had already gotten "officially" married at a local courthouse prior to our destination ceremony, so we wanted a touching but quick ceremony for our wine country wedding. She was great! The vows she had were so sweet and she was more than willing to change things and incorporate personal things we wanted to include. She did a wonderful job and was so easy to work with before the wedding!

Rose was amazing! When making wedding plans, one does not put much thought into the officiant, and with Rose, you do not need to. She was so accommodating and approachable. We live about 100 miles away from Rose, so when my fiancé sent me her information, I was a bit skeptical, only because of the distance between us both. That skepticism was alleviated immediately. We emailed Rose and expressed our interest in her services. She responded promptly and we set up a Skype session.

After that, we were all in. Rose's ceremonies are succinct without rushing you out the door. We preferred a nondenominational ceremony, which Rose provided (and we have no doubt that had we asked for a bit more faith in our ceremony, Rose would've executed that beautifully).

I would fully recommend Rose Barboza to anyone and everyone. In fact, at our wedding, we had a friend ask where and how we found Rose, because their daughter was to be married soon and she still needed an officiant. We pointed her in Rose's direction! Rose Rocks!

Rose officiated my 15 year wedding renewal with my husband. We live in Florida, so I was a liitle nervous about hiring someone before I met them. After speaking to two other officiants over the phone, I found Rose to be down to earth, friendly and extremely helpful. Her communication before hand was excellent. When I finally met her on our renewal day, I could not have made a better choice! I felt as I had known her a lifetime! Her warmth and sincerity made us extremely comfortable and I also felt as if an old family friend was officiating. As a mother and wife, Rose understands how important your big day is, and for that she was the perfect choice for us.

Rose Barboza did a terrific job for our wedding! We couldn't have asked for anything more. My husband and I wanted a brief, non-denominational ceremony with a personable and patient officiant, and Rose was the best. We were able to meet with her in person prior to the wedding and she was very professional, warm and patient. She was able to get an idea of what we envisioned on our big day in terms of the ceremony and provided us with a great sample vow that we really liked. The day of the ceremony, Rose arrived in the bridal suite and was able to review the vows with me to calm my nerves before the wedding. Rose did a great job and the ceremony was perfect. Thanks again Rose!

She was very quick with reply emails and very helpful with the whole process. She had a couple different versions of the vows she recites and all of them were great. She was available for our rehearsal and kept everyone in line and on task with a cool, calm demeanor. She was ontime and fully prepared. She has a great voice, spoke very clearly and seemed very comfortable and had a great personality. We couldnt be more happy with our ceremony and Rose, she did a fabulous job. Highly recommended!

We have recently used Rose Barboza as our officiant and couldn't have asked for a better person to marry us! She was wonderfully friendly and professional. She has a beautiful ceremony and was open to any and all changes if we wanted. She took all of the guesswork out of the paperwork in getting our marriage license and got it all finalized so we didn't have to worry about a thing. We really loved her reminder emails with detailed instructions for each step of the process. She really made everything simple and smooth, and the guests loved her ceremony as much as we did! Thank you Rose for helping to make our wedding day perfect!

We are so glad we chose Rose for our special day! She was a pleasure to work with and helped craft what many of our friends have called the most emotional wedding they’ve ever been a part of. She was willing to try Skype for her first time to accommodate our busy schedule and inability to meet in person. We liked her right away and she quickly helped pull together the ceremony based on our conversations, doing some research for additional quotes based on some authors we liked. Rose was also very professional and reliable. She did a great job running our rehearsal, especially after our transportation company caused us to be 30 minutes late for our short 1 hour rehearsal window at the chapel. She was polite and welcoming, but kept the group focused and on task. She was equally great during the ceremony itself. She subtly told us if we weren’t looking at each other (oops! Hard not to look at her instead) or loud enough, and she did a nice job introducing our mothers as readers (and preventing a near mix-up). We really liked Rose and highly recommend her for your own wedding day.

As the groom, I was a bit intimidated to take on the responsibility of finding an officiant. We were planning a destination wedding, so I knew that we wouldn't have a chance to personally meet with the person who would be performing the most important ceremony of our lives. I felt an enormous amount of pressure to get it right.

After several hours of online research, narrowing down my list to a few candidates, I contacted Rose. She responded with a very friendly, informative email that showed her enthusiasm for what she does. After reading her sample vows, my fiancee was sobbing. I took that as a good sign.

We conducted a phone meeting with Rose the next week, and knew by the end of the conversation we had found the right person for our wedding. Rose was very involved along the way, following up with us several times before the wedding to go over the details and see if we had any questions.

On the big day, she arrived in plenty of time before the ceremony, making sure we were all where we needed to be. The wedding was outdoors, and the wind was particularly strong. But Rose spoke clearly and loudly, without ever sounding as if she were yelling. Throughout the entire event, she was extremely friendly and professional.

As with just about every wedding, there were several things I wish I had done differently, or things that just didn't go as I expected. Having Rose share our special day with us is not one of them. Everything about her participation was absolutely flawless, and it was a joy to work with her.

As the groom, I was a bit intimidated to take on the responsibility of finding an officiant. We were planning a destination wedding, so I knew that we wouldn't have a chance to personally meet with the person who would be performing the most important ceremony of our lives. I felt an enormous amount of pressure to get it right.

After several hours of online research, narrowing down my list to a few candidates, I contacted Rose. She responded with a very friendly, informative email that showed her enthusiasm for what she does. After reading her sample vows, my fiancee was sobbing. I took that as a good sign.

We conducted a phone meeting with Rose the next week, and knew by the end of the conversation we had found the right person for our wedding. Rose was very involved along the way, following up with us several times before the wedding to go over the details and see if we had any questions.

I would highly recommend Rose as an officiant. She was unbelievably accommodating. My husband and I decided to elope while we were on vacation in Bodega Bay. Rose was very responsive, helpful, and able to work us in last minute. She even brought a witness who snapped a bunch of great photos with our camera at no additional charge. Rose customized the ceremony and gave us exactly what we wanted, where we wanted, on less than 12 hours notice. She filed the license the same day and provided us all of the information we needed to apply initially and obtain copies. Any couple would be lucky to have Rose officiate their ceremony.

Rose was amazing at making my husband and I feel like we were the only wedding that mattered to her. She took the time to make sure that we were comfortable with the ceremony that she had prepared and if there were any changes we would like to make. What was most impressive was that she really treated us with respect and warmth as if we were already close friends. This translated into a genuine feeling that she cared about making our day special. I would highly recommend Rose to my friends and family because of her professionalism and commitment to making our day as special as it could be.

Our wedding was planned in a very spontaneous manner. Rose made herself available to us on very short notice. This was especially appreciated because of the drive involved to our venue. Unlike other officiants we interviewed, she did not pressure us into doing things a certain way and did not make us feel silly for planning things last minute. Her attitude was very positive, friendly, and sincere. It was a pleasure to have been married by Rose Barboza. She helped make our day special.

Rose performed our wedding just a week ago. From beginning to end she has been warm, professional, and pleasant. She met with us prior to contracting with her when several others would not. She helped us with organizing our ceremony. She was on time and in control at the rehearsal. There was always open communication and she respected our wishes for the type and tone of our ceremony, what we wanted said and how we wanted it to go. Can't say enough for how sweet a person she is and how much of a help she was in this process. Highly recommended!

Rose officiated our wedding last week, and did an incredible job! She took the time to meet with us beforehand, and go over every last detail. She was very accommodating, and was willing to change any and all parts of her "standard" reading to fit our needs. She was warm, kind, open, funny, and everything you'd want out of someone on your special day.

The actual officiating went BEAUTIFULLY. She has great presence, a wonderful speaking voice, and a really genuine nature that shows. She felt natural standing next to us up there! I really felt as if I had known her for life when she married us. In addition, she was very calm and patient, and had excellent demeanor when dealing with a sometimes unruly wedding party. She was very classy and professional, and I could tell that she really loves what she does! Her reading was so beautiful - we had multiple people crying and it felt really personal and sweet.

Rose helped make this the best day of our life. I'm SO happy we had her as part of our wedding! She would make a fantastic addition to any wedding. Sweet, genuine, honest, open, caring, and fun - what more could one ask for? Thank you so much Rose! You were a big reason that our huge day was perfect! I highly recommend Rose as an officiant, lots of kudos!!

Even that it was on short notice, I could not have asked or hoped for a perfect wedding. The service, reponsiveness, professionalism, and flexibilty were way above extrarodinary for a very special day.

Dear Rose, As you know this was my second marriage. The first was in a beautiful church by our minister. My second was in my father in laws back yard by you. I only wish I had you as my first as well. It was so much more personal, heart felt and fun by you. If someone wants a stuffy, unfeeling wedding go with a minister but if they really want something from the heart and personal they should go with you. Thank you for being apart of my day, it will always live on in my heart.

She was efficient and without having to involve me talked to the person handling the music, rounded up our witnesses, gave a beautiful ceremony and most importantly handled our license with no issues. She is a true professional and a wonderful officiant but also a warm presence. Many of our guests commented on how great she was. I thank Rose!

We had a great experience with Rose and would definitely recommend her to a friend who was getting married. She was professional and quick to respond to all of my emails. She provided a sense of calm during the ceremony, quietly directing us what to do, and executed the ceremony (almost) exactly as my fiance and I had written it.

The only snafu was that she accidentally called my fiance by my father's name during the ceremony, but the crowd got a chuckle and we were so happy that it didn't put a damper on the ceremony.

Overall, Rose was wonderful to work with and we appreciated her great work!

My husband and I eloped recently in Santa Rosa, CA while on vacation. We only had a week and a half between when we decided to do this and the date of the ceremony. Rose was very quick to reach out to us once she had our contact info and I found her warm, down to earth and easy to talk to. The day of the ceremony, Rose was willing to trudge down a slope and stumble around on some rocks by the creek for our ceremony even though she was dressed nice for an event that was following! I have to admit it was not easy to walk around on those rocks and I appreciated that she was completely willing to go along with it!

The ceremony was unique and Rose made it all so easy. Both of us felt at ease with her and are happy we chose her to marry us. It's not easy to plan a wedding across the country without actually getting to meet people before choosing them and I feel confident in saying that you won't be disappointed if you chose Rose to do the same for you.

Rose officiated my wedding in 2012. At the time, I thought she did a perfectly adequate job officiating though I did feel like the ceremony was a bit rushed and for the amount of money paid, didn't necessarily think it was good value for the money. I did not find anything unique or noteworthy about the standard ceremony script she uses, but I appreciated that she let us incorporate one or two personal touches which included readings by friends/family. I was however, highly disappointed with her procedure for vows: she takes your original vows after the wedding and says she has a policy of sending them to her clients on her one year anniversary. I assumed that meant our vows would be treated with the utmost care and safekeeping. Our anniversary came and went but we didn't hear anything, so I reached out to her only to learn that she had sent the vows, but they had been mailed back and she had not bothered to follow up with me via email pr telephone (we moved in the last year). After I reached out to her it took her about a week to track them down (lucky for us, she still had them). There is nothing more irreplaceable than original, handwritten vows. I think if you are going to have a policy of keeping the original vows, you should also have a policy of confirming with a couple that their address is still current on their year anniversary, and if the vows are sent back, you should make some minimal effort to contact them via email or telephone.

Was flexible in the time of need when our dearest friend had gone into the hospital and was very ill and would not be able to marry us. She did accommodate us in the short time we had to find an officiant. Tho, I was sort of displease with how short the ceremony was and seemed like it was being rushed. The ceremony didnt have much personality to it and if I knew that before hand I would have wrote something myself. She also stayed for the reception and dinner which I didnt know that was part of the agreement. Overall it was an ok ceremony.
