My Happy 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!!!
Susan listened to what we wanted incorporated in our ceremony and performed a beautiful ceremony.

Thank you so much for your wonderful comments. Many blessings.
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!
Dr. Barbara Schwarck did a very good job for us officiating our wedding ceremony. 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 and I have done two weddings together and they both were "Happy Days" for everyone.
She creates a comfortable and joyful service. Barbara will take the time to get to know you.
I highly refer her.
Barbara was wonderful with the couple. She was really in tune with the couple's needs and wants and their interfaith traditions that they wanted to uphold. I would reccomend Barbara to any of my future couples that are looking for someone that is good at what they do and respectful of a couples background.
Congratulations on your engagement!
