Your go-to officiant during a pandemic
We got married in July of the Pandemic and Megan was so accommodating throughout the process. In the end, we decided to have our ceremony with just parents and 'zoomed in' everyone else. Megan adjusted seamlessly to everything and wrote a beautiful ceremony that we just loved!Sent on 08/04/2020
Megan Barber Ceremonies's reply:Thank you so much, Mary! It was a joy to be with you and your families. I wish you and Brett all the very best in your life together!

professional, heartfelt and personalized ceremony
We reached out to Megan on WeddingWire about 2 months before our wedding. Right off the bat, I could tell she wasn't just accepting all inquiries but wanted to make sure it was a good fit. She directed my then fiancé and myself to review her website which included details about her, the type of services she offered and pricing options. The next interaction was a virtual meeting via zoom. She seemed very personable and easy to talk to, confirming our decision to have her officiate our wedding.
If you're looking for someone to just recite some cookie cutter ceremony then Megan isn't the one for you. You have to put in the effort as well. This paid off big time with a beautiful ceremony which my family and my in-laws are still raving about. She had us describe what we wanted out of the ceremony, had us fill out questionnaires which she used to structure our ceremony.
The entire process was very interactive. She sent out drafts for us to review and was very open to suggestions or whatever changes we wanted to make or include in our ceremony. Wherever we had difficulties she had suggestions to help us arrive at a decision. It didn't feel like she was dictating what happened but she was very flexible in having the ceremony be what we as the couple wanted. This made the entire process stress free especially since due to the current conditions we didn't meet her in person until the day of the wedding.
I think her pricing is fair given the quality of work and the time she put in. She also gave us the option of practicing at the rehearsal on our own with a cue sheet provided, to avoid paying an extra fee to have her present the night before the wedding. It all came together beautifully! We are so happy with went with her!

Megan Barber Ceremonies's reply:You're so welcome! It was an honor. I loved getting to know your family and your sweet son. Best wishes to you all!
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!!
