    Barbra is amazing!

    It was extremely important to us that we had a genuine connection with our entire vendor team. From the first call with Barbra, it was clear she would bring something special to our wedding day. She is calm and caring and truly listened. She took time to understand who we are as individuals and what brought us together as a couple. She perfectly captured our our love and relationship and beautifully shared it with our friends and family during the ceremony. We are so incredibly grateful that Barbra was apart of our wedding day. After the ceremony, many of our guests approached us raving about her and the experience she created. She is a beautiful person and extremely thoughtful officiant.

    The thing no one prepares you for in wedding planning is wanting to continue working with your vendors after the wedding day!!

    The best officiant!

    We are SO glad that we chose Barbra to be the officiant for our wedding! We connected right away after I first reached out, and my now-husband and I both felt so comfortable when meeting with her and going over what would go into our ceremony. Our March 2020 wedding was cancelled just a week before due to the first shutdown for COVID-19, but Barbra was so sweet and supportive during the whole postponement process.

    As we got a few months away from our rescheduled date in December, we made the tough decision to reschedule a second time to an entire year later, but we knew we still wanted to get married in a small ceremony this year. Hours before another shutdown, we finally got married, and it was the most beautiful ceremony. We didn't have audio set up, and everyone was standing far away for social distancing, but Barbra's words about us still touched everyone! She's going to repeat the ceremony for us at our larger wedding next year, and we're so glad we get to work with her again!

    10+ Stars to Barbra

    From the first call to the day of the ceremony Barbra was so wonderful to work with! We wanted something relaxed and unplanned for our elopement ceremony. I was worried about not knowing all the details and Barbra was so caring and easy going about letting the day unfold perfectly for us. I could not have asked for a better day and Barbra was a huge part of making it so PERFECT! I will be forever thankful to her for the light, loving, thoughtful energy she brought to our wedding day.
