Rev. Lodge came highly recommended to us by the wedding coordinator at our venue. She was the first minister we met with and during the meeting we decided we didn’t need to meet with anyone else. We asked her to officiate our ceremony the day we met her. Her warm, welcoming and nonjudgmental approach made us feel comfortable and relaxed. Rev. Lodge will perform the ceremony you desire, as specific or generic as you choose. She is responsive, professional, and an excellent orator. I’ve been to weddings before where the minister’s delivery was subpar at best. This is far from the case with Rev. Lodge. You won’t be disappointed with her services. She takes care of everything and explains the marriage license process thoroughly. She was available for questions all the way up to our wedding day. She even wore our wedding colors to the ceremony! I couldn’t be happier with her service. She made our day truly special.Sent on 10/16/2018

The Best Ever!
I don't even know where to begin. Rev. Barbara Lodge is simply the best. She was so accommodating, not only with simple changes to the ceremony script but also with assisting us to plan from long distance. She is so kind and professional, she becomes like family in not time. We wish we could do it all over again, if just to share this experience with her. You will not be disappointed.

Well-Delivered, Calm and Reassuring, Poignant
Rev. Lodge was exactly what we were looking for in our officiant! She took our cares, desires, and concerns in regard to the ceremony and crafted a sweetly pragmatic rite that succinctly captured what we wanted in a wedding ceremony: a celebration of our respect for each other and our desire to grow with each other, with no mentions of religion or patriarchal traditions. Delivery was perfect, and she expertly handled some last minute instructions from our event coordinator.
Rev. Barbara Lodge is far and away one of the most amazing professionals in our area. She is kind, respectful, helpful and a joy to work with. As a long time wedding professional when it came time for my own wedding I could think of no one better than Barbara. She did an amazing job with both our couples counseling (which we requested) and our ceremony!
Barbara Lodge has always performed beautiful ceremonies at haywood hall. Highly recommended by everyone who has had ceremonies here with Reverend Lodge
Barbara Lodge is a fabulous wedding minister, her ceremonies are uniquely special and memorable. I have worked with Barbara Lodge for many years at many gorgeous weddings and it is always a pleasure. Barbara Lodge is sensitive, and she gets to the heart of each couple and eloquently describes their love for one another in lovely and meaningful ways. Barbara is versatile and flexible and yet always in command, wedding couples and their families are immediately put at ease by her warmth and gracious personality. Whether it is a small wedding in an intimate garden, or a grand wedding at a 5-star hotel, wedding ceremonies with Barbara Lodge are always special, always personal, and always beautiful. I highly recommend Barbara Lodge!
