Highly recommend Barefoot Weddings

My husband and I were so very happy with the ceremony that Nancy Taussig of Barefoot Weddings officiated in October, 2020. Nancy ensured that our wedding ceremony was magical with special touches that only she can provide. The ceremony language was beautiful and the whole experience was memorable. Thank you Nancy!

We wanted something simple and casual for our open-air Hand-fasting. Nancy T. made it easy from the initial communication right through to the beautiful words she wrote to join us together.
She has our thanks and you have our hearty recommendation to allow her to make your special day awesome.

Mrs. Nancy is absolutely wonderful! She is very quick to respond and does everything to make sure your big day is special. The ceremony itself was beautiful as it was celebrated at sunset. Mrs. Nancy created a special booklet she read to us, printed our vows, and presented us with a lovely ceremony! It was very quick and to the point, just what we wanted. We thought the joining of the sand was perfect and at the end we had our very own keepsake. I would highly recommend Mrs. Nancy as she was delightful and such a sweet lady. Very impressed!!
