Thoughtful and personalized ceremony
Megan was great! We did the personalized packaged (rather than customized) and it was just the right touch. We had some unique touches to our ceremony and Megan took them and ran. The ceremony she wrote for us was absolutely perfect. She took us through 3 drafts until it was exactly what we wanted, and the day of she executed flawlessly. Megan was excellent to communicate with. She emailed us with a list of things to remember (two of which we had forgotten) which was a huge help. I can't tell you how many people approached us complimenting on how beautiful the ceremony was. It was perfect!Sent on 10/09/2019
Megan Barber Ceremonies's reply:Thank you so much, Bryanna. I was so moved by your and Dan's presence with the moment during the ceremony, and I loved meeting your friends and family. I'm carrying many warm memories in my heart from your day. Thank you for including me! I wish you both all the very best

We are so grateful to have found Megan and to have had her as our wedding officiant. She is warm, personable, creative, and SO freaking good at what she does!!Sent on 09/25/2019
We planned our Ithaca, NY wedding from Washington, DC where we live. Despite the distance, Megan got to know us through phone calls, Skype, and a couple questionnaires. She used those interactions to create a custom ceremony script for us. She gave us opportunities to provide input on drafts. She worked with our other vendors on timing, audio, and logistics. And come the day of the wedding, her facilitation of the ceremony was truly expert, her delivery was flawless, her presence was calming, and she had our guests (and us!) both laughing and crying.
Of all the compliments we’ve received about our wedding, the most have been about Megan’s ceremony. Guests complimented how personal it was, and that they felt like they got to know our story as a couple better. We couldn’t agree more. Not only was Megan an absolute stress-free pleasure to work with, but she was incredibly professional and demonstrated so much care and integrity throughout the process. We are SO appreciative of the time and thought she put into our wedding and we LOVED our ceremony. I cannot recommend her enough, and will absolutely reach out to her again for the life celebrations and milestones that are to come!
Megan Barber Ceremonies's reply:Thank you SO much, Sarah! I absolutely loved getting to know you both and it was truly an honor to be your officiant and to celebrate with you and your families. I will always keep you in my heart, and will think of you every time I see a Wegmans cheese plate! :)

July 2019 Wedding
Megan created a beautiful ceremony and she allowed us to be part of the editing process during its creation. She took the time via phone calls and questionnaires to get to know us as a couple even though we could not meet in person ahead of time. She was even able to craft a bilingual ceremony as my husband's family speaks Spanish. She really did an excellent job at portraying our love story to our friends and family. She also added special moments into the ceremony to make it very personal to us as a couple. We had so many people come up to us after the ceremony and comment on what a beautiful job Megan did. She genuinely cared and made our ceremony something we will never forget. We highly recommend Megan Barber as a wedding officiant!Sent on 09/03/2019
Megan Barber Ceremonies's reply:Megan, I just loved being a part of your wedding and getting to know you and Anthony and your friends and family. It was an honor to marry you, and I wish you both so much love and joy!
Absolutely wonderful officiant. Highly recommend Megan and her beautiful smile, amazing personality and joy doing what she loves shines through on your wedding day.
Many people don't think they need a "Megan Barber" in their life when it comes to such a celebratory event as a wedding, but using her talent will make the actual "ceremony" what it should be. Something that is meaningful that celebrates YOU. She makes this act of getting married truly memorable. I totally believe in what she does and how she approaches the task at hand. I totally believe in her work. What she accomplishes at the ceremony is more valuable than anything you put into the reception!!
