Barbara was just wonderful to work with, and we were extremely pleased with our ceremony. Barbara was open to all ideas and offered wonderful guidance on creating our own ceremony, tailor made to fit everything we wanted, especially including our 4yr old son. Barbara was responsive and easy to work with throughout the process. During the ceremony she took her time, and even when my poor husband almost completely passed out (!) she kept everything going very smoothly. Even with that "dramatic event", it seemed like our ceremony was hardly disrupted, and for this we truly appreciate her, and our ceremony has become unforgettable!

We were absolutely delighted with Barbara as our officiant! She crafted a wonderful, personalized ceremony for us based on our responses to her questions and her meeting with us. She added elements to the ceremony that were so right for us - where she had clearly absorbed all our information, and chose just the right things that reflected us so well. She also incorporated areas of humor that went over very well. We received many compliments on our ceremony. She was great at our rehearsal and had everyone knowing how and what to do for their role. She gave thoughtful suggestions for our wine ceremony such as getting a lower table so we wouldn't be blocked by it thereby improving our pictures/video. Even the cards she provided for our vows were first class and professional. She was so easy to work with and very responsive. She worked with our vendors ahead of the ceremony including providing music cues to our string quartet. Barbara was the one thing we were not at all worried about before our wedding day. We knew she would be there in plenty of time and would make sure she did her part to ensure we had the best wedding ceremony possible. We know she made our wedding her priority. We could go on but suffice to say that having Barbara officiate at our wedding was the easiest and best vendor decision we made and we can recommend her without reservation or hesitation.

Barbara is a phenomenal lady who totally captured our thoughts and interests as our officiant. She interacted with us both in person and several times via email to develop a wonderful ceremony. We recommend her most highly.
