If you’re reading this, BOOK BARBARA AS YOUR WEDDING OFFICIANT! My fiancé and I are about a month out from our wedding, and working with Barbara has been a dream. We cannot wait for her to lead our ceremony and be the first to greet us as husband and wife.Sent on 06/26/2018
My fiancé and I are among the first few in our circle of friends to get married. We have very little family help, and therefore we came into the process with very little knowledge of what we wanted. Some vendors take the approach of asking you a million questions and expecting you to know exactly what you want. Instead, Barbara presented us with many options for our ceremony, let us pick and choose passages that felt right for us, and was willing to rework anything that didn’t feel right. In the extremely overwhelming process of wedding planning, Barbara has always been mindful of keeping things as straight forward and easy as possible. We cannot express how much that means to us.
Because we are planning everything ourselves, it was important that we find vendors who are knowledgeable, professional, responsive, and reliable. Barbara is every one of those things. She guided us on different traditions and helped us decide which to include/exclude. She is respectful of different beliefs. She has responded to every one of our emails thoughtfully and in a timely manner. Most importantly, my fiancé and I can rest easy knowing that we can trust her on our wedding day. Thank you so, so much, Barbara!

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!Sent on 09/12/2018
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 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!
I cannot say enough about Barbara's warmth and true interest and connection she has with every person she meets. The wedding ceremonies that she creates with each couple are beautiful, creative, meaningful and so very lovely!
We have worked with Barbara Boyd for many years. It's very comforting to know when we will be doing a wedding together. She's very professional and personable. Love Barbara Boyd!
Barbara is a true Master of Ceremonies. Very experienced, professional and articulate, bringing a heartfelt presence to every wedding. I recommend her as a top-tier choice, for nuptials and special ceremonies!
