About Reverend Barbara Laughray

Rev. Barbara Laughray | A Hallmark Wedding-conducting 5,800 weddings

Warm & personalized wedding officiant. religious and/or non-denominational ceremonies. baby dedications and baptisms. pre-marital and post-marital counseling available. wedding vow renewal. wedding license available.

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 was amazing!!!

    We live far away (NY) from our wedding venue (CA) so worked with Barbara over the phone. She did a great job explaining the process to us and helping us design a ceremony that felt right for us. Neither my husband nor I are particularly religious and Barbara gave us readings to choose from that were non-denominational. She focuses on you, the couple, rather than dogma. Plus, she even reviewed our vows for us before the big day to make sure they weren't too off base/far apart. She struck a humorous tone with our guests and managed to bring real authenticity and uniqueness. Many people complimented us on the ceremony afterwards!
