    We hired Barbara after we saw her officiate my husband’s brothers wedding. We liked having the connection and we are so happy we chose her!

    She really did an amazing job, not only day of, but throughout the entire ceremony planning process. She is so communicative, receptive to our ideas and input and instilled a calming effect throughout the whole marriage process.

    She provided a lot of ceremony ideas for us to work from. We appreciated the little details she did as well. She created a book of our ceremony which she used day of, then we got to keep it as our memento!

    Personally, one of the best parts of the day for me was our ceremony. I was able to really slow down time, absorb the moment, and a lot of that was due to her. Our guests raved about her as well. They thought she was very well spoken, which allowed them to hear every word. You could also feel the compassion in her voice. She used to be a wedding planner and you can definitely tell by her expertise.

    It was the best day of my lives and she was a huge part of the reason why. I highly recommend her to any Bride!!

    Barbara Boyd Ceremonies's reply:

    Marisa, Thank you for your warm and wonderful review. I'm so happy you both were overjoyed with your ceremony and the time we spent crafting it together. It was lovely standing with you both under the stately redwoods as you shared your heartfelt vows. The weather was ideal, your guests were full of love and support and your chosen venue elegant and sophisticated. May your journey of love and passion as husband and wife continue forever.

    Barbara was a joy to work with. We were planning a wedding from out-of-state and Barbara was very prompt in her communication. She really took the time to get to know us and our story. She gave us a wonderful selection of prose to use in our ceremony, which we narrowed down to our favorite parts, and Barbara made it flow seamlessly. She was also extremely professional and gave us a lot of helpful tips for what to do during the ceremony/processional/etc. My husband and I were completely clueless during the process and she guided us, step-by-step, the entire way. The ceremony was beautiful and several of our guests came up to us to let us know how much they enjoyed it. I give Barbara my highest recommendation!
