About Barbara's Ceremonies

Welcome!  As a Certified Celebrant Leader and Interfaith Minister, I provide an inspiring, nurturing presence, co-creating and officiating at wedding, commitment, self-marriage, engagement, vow-renewal and other ceremonies  based on your unique values and beliefs. Whether you would love a personalized ceremony where your unique story is told from the heart and soul, inspiring you and your guests, or you just want a short, sweet yet authentic and memorable ceremony, I would be honored to lead your special event.

Regardless what the nature of your ceremony is, we will infuse your ceremony with meaning and energy that enlivens, connects and inspires you and your community of guests.

Celebrants officiate at personalized civil-secular, nondenominational, religious, spiritual and multicultural wedding ceremonies. I will help you create a ceremony that reflects the beliefs beliefs and traditions you find important.

I’m here to serve as your guide and facilitator in the process of creating a wedding ceremony which will include elements that are most meaningful to you: Your unique personal love story, music you love, colors and symbols that have meaning for you, vows, readings and unique rituals that reflect your cultural, religious and/or spiritual heritage.

A few questions to think about: What do you and your fiance value that you want your wedding ceremony to reflect? What do you want your guests to know about you? What do you want them to experience? What do YOU most want to experience on this day?

My background includes working as a Life Transitions Coach and Intercultural Trainer. I've lived in Europe and Asia, love meeting new people, speaking inspirationally in front of groups, creative writing and painting abstracts. I care about authentically connecting and making a difference at a personal level. In 2009 I became ordained as an Interfaith Minister with James Twyman's Beloved Community http://www.emissaryoflight.com/index.html and have spoken numerous times at various spiritual organizations. In 2011 I became certified as a Celebrant Leader with the Celebrant Foundation & Institute. Through this organization, I feel like I got a Ph.D. in learning all the intricacies and nuances of creating and leading ceremonies!

    I HIGHLY recommend

    A couple things that were absolutes for me when planning a wedding, vendors that communicated well and good costumer service, simply because planning a wedding is A LOT of work. Barbara showed that from day one, but she was really so much more. She was easy to communicate with. The first time we spoke to her on the phone, the warmth of the her personally came right through. I was very nervous about this party of the wedding and I didn't know where to start when creating a ceremony that fit us. She eased my nerves and created the most perfect, personal, ceremony that my husband and I could ask for. Literally, so many of my guests said over and over again that "that ceremony was very you". I cannot thank her enough for her warm presence and hard work (although she made it seem easy) that she put into making our day perfect. I would recommend 100 times over again.

    Barbara was present and attentive to our needs and preferences. She was able to facilitate the ceremony just as we wanted and provided needed guidance

    Would highly recommend Barbara. Her presence and non- judgement was appreciated throughout the process. Guidance given was much appreciated!!! Many guests commented on how beautiful the ceremony was and how appropriate the story was that she incorporated in the ceremony.
