From the moment I met Barbara I knew her bubbly personality would be perfect for our ceremony. You can tell she is a person who loves not only what she does but loves love! I corresponded with her via email (i was a long distance bride) and she was very responsive...finally met her while in Rhode Island and she drove to the airport from Narragansett to meet with me! when she sent the rough draft of our vows i cried...they were beautiful! she really took the time to get to know us as a couple and write vows that were genuine and heart felt. The day of the ceremony everything was perfect and we got compliments on what a beautiful ceremony it was. I cannot thank her enough for making my day so amazing!

We loved our wedding ceremony and the vows that Jim wrote for us. We loved that they were tailored specifically to us and included the children as well. I was an emotional bride and Jim was ready with a tissue. I thought that was so sweet. Very nice people and a joy to work with. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for an officiant.

Barbara is an exceptional officiant. She gets to know her couples on a personal level and makes their wedding ceremony about them. Barbara is personable and a pleasure to work with! Barbara did a beautiful knot tying ceremony at one particular wedding I did with her. The couple was more than pleased, and the guests commented on the ceremony's originality.
