The reason why so many wedding professionals and couples choose Rev Barbara to conduct their ceremonies, is no mystery: she changes lives. She is a charismatic speaker whose words are filled with love, support and tenderness. She is able to help couples clarify what is really important to them and guide them to the understanding of the wedding ceremony as not just a one time ritual between two people, but a lifetime commitment to themselves, their families and their communities. In short it awakens her clients to the higher purpose of marriage.
WHY A HALLMARK WEDDING? " If you are looking for a left-brain ceremony, I'm probably the wrong officiant for you," states Rev. Barbara. "For me, the wedding ceremony is completely right-brain...it is an art form."Though each ceremony is individually tailored to reflect the values of the bride and groom, a constant theme running through every ceremony is the power of unconditional love. Rev Barbara's ceremonies are organic creations. She doesn't READ from a book, but speaks from the HEART! Always present in the moment, she is able to draw on the emotions, humor and energy all around her to express words that touch people profoundly. What she shares to the bride and groom is extremely personal to them, but also meaningful to all family and friends. They walk away from the ceremony sensing that they received a gift too.
Rev. Barbara started out as a traditional pastor, with her own church, but quickly realized her true calling was nuturing relationships. Now years later and performing over 5,800 weddings she knows she has found her higher purpose. She sees many couples through the years, and for many; baptize/dedicate their children. She has conducted pre & post counseling for many, although not required.

Barbara is wonderful! When first meeting her my husband and I instantly felt comfortable and in good hands. Barbara is welcoming, caring, calm, attentive to detail, and patient. We could not have been happier with her services and would highly recommend her to any one! She is one of a kind!Sent on 12/06/2019

Rev. Barbara did a beautiful job of officiating our wedding. It was a thoughtful, beautiful ceremony that really captured the love we have for each other. She was also very helpful with marriage license information, which we knew nothing about.Sent on 12/11/2019

Reverend Barbara made the most important part of our day so incredibly special and go so smoothly. She took so much of the stress out of it and guided us through the whole thing. The love letters she had us write and read to each other were truly the highlight of the whole thing and we are so glad she convinced us to read them as part of our ceremony. Barbara works with you to personalize the ceremony and we were so pleased!Sent on 11/10/2019
