Rev Robert's is such a bright soul and a very experienced person to have at your ceremony.Sent on 10/07/2019
She arrived early and even assisted in helping the girls and I get ready. She also went over the ceremony with the best man and made sure he knew what he was doing.
She was very responsive, her reading was beautiful and calming and I felt very comfortable with her handling our paperwork.
Alternative Weddings by Rev. Roberts's reply:Thank you so much Victoria for your sweet review of my services. It's always a pleasure to officiate at happy occasions like weddings and yours turned out beautifully. Best wishes to you and Matthew in your new life together!

Truly wonderful ceremony!
Rev. Barbara performed our ceremony at Amicalola Falls. Communication was great and she was super flexible and accommodating. She performed our ceremony at the Appalachian Trail arch, near the visitors center, just prior to us starting our Appalachian Trail thru-hike. We couldn't ask for anything more!Sent on 05/03/2019
Alternative Weddings by Rev. Roberts's reply:I really appreciate your nice review, especially since it was done while hiking the Appalachian Trail! Technology comes in handy sometimes. Thanks so much!

Monica · Married on 10/17/2018
Rev Dr Barbara Roberts was exactly what we were looking for in having a casual, intimate ceremony in a scenic setting. She was able to meet us and our puppy at Amicalola Falls on shorter notice of planning, AND by sunrise! We corresponded seamlessly through email, and she was prompt and precise in making sure that everything was just the way we wanted. (We had fun choosing just the right words for our vows from her website!) Barbara was warm, kind, and professional, and we are so grateful for all of her help in making such a special memory for us. We would highly recommend her to anyone, as she can do it all!Sent on 10/23/2018

Suzette · Married on 12/03/2017
Rev. Barbara Roberts officiated my mothers celebration of life event...I was told by everyone in attendance that it was so perfectly fitting. She helped with the wording of Eulogy, poems, and Benediction....Although, this is not her area of normal officiating, I cannot imagine leaving such an important event for anyone else to lead....I recommend her, and will definitely use her for my wedding day...Sent on 12/05/2017
Alternative Weddings by Rev. Roberts's reply:You are so sweet to write such kind words about me Suzi. Even though I was a little nervous about doing a Memorial Service, I think it turned out very well and was absolutely lovely.

Liv · Married on 09/22/2017
Rev. Barbara is very personable, reliable and a kind soul. My partner, our dog and I felt very comfortable with her. We basically just wanted to sign the papers to make it official and didn't want a ceremony. We got married at Amicalola Falls by her house which was beautiful and peaceful. Definitely recommend Rev Barbara Roberts!Sent on 09/22/2017
Alternative Weddings by Rev. Roberts's reply:Thank you so much for your kind review. It was a beautiful day for a wedding, even if it was a quickie. I loved your "witness" Maggie who came with you!
Carol · Married on 08/24/2017
Rev. Roberts was great to work with! Choosing the date was very spontaneous and had a short timeline due to my husband's availability. The plans came together quickly. The ceremony was unique, beautiful and intimate at the bottom of the Falls which is exactly what I was wanting. Rev. Roberts brought just the right amount of tradition and uniqueness to this very special day! Thank you ever so much for a perfect ceremony.Sent on 08/30/2017
Alternative Weddings by Rev. Roberts's reply:Thank YOU, Carol for being so flexible and working around all the parameters. I was honored to do your wedding and it turned out to be very beautiful indeed!

Daniel · Married on 05/28/2017
For our 30th wedding anniversary I chose to surprise my wife with a vow renewal which included hand fasting vows. It is exactly what my wife hoped l would do. At our 20 the Anversery we renewed our vows with our kids and friends present. We had discussed at that time how a more personal ceremony with just the two of us would really be nice and more relaxed. I chose to have our renewal at a cabin in the mountains. My wife and I feel at peace there so I felt it would be a perfect place. Reverend Roberts services made it possible to set up the perfect surprise. She was flexible with the time showed up promptly. I had proposed the renewal to my wife early in the day which brought an overwhelming amount of joyous tears. We spent the morning choosing music to play in the background while Reverend Roberts performed the ceremony. She did a wonderful job and even teared up along with us. We couldn't have asked for more.Sent on 08/07/2017
Alternative Weddings by Rev. Roberts's reply:That really was a beautiful ceremony for me as well and I was so honored to be a part of such a special day with the two of you.
Janice · Married on 10/29/2016
Rev. Dr. Barbara Roberts is such a pleasure. She made our intimate cabin wedding ceremony perfect. What attracted us to her was her professionalism and kindness. I loved that she supported our ideas for our ceremony and we were able to incorporate our own personal vows as well all while using her examples as a guideline. She was more than happy to make any changes needed which made our day stress free, intimate and lovely. We made the best decision by choosing her as our officiant for a day we will never forget!

John-Michael · Married on 07/16/2016
Where can we start? Rev. Barbara Roberts performed our elopement ceremony and we were very pleased! From the time that I first e-mailed her, through the date of the wedding, she kept in contact with me elimitating some of my pre-wedding stresses. And, she made both my partner and I very comfortable during our ceremony. If you're looking for a personable Officiant, who will go above and beyond, Rev. Roberts is your lady! We can't thank her enough for her services and hope that you too have the same experience with her.Sent on 07/17/2016

We had an absolutely wonderful experience with Barbara. She was very professional and helpful during the planning process, and she also had a very personal, warm touch that made dealing with her a pleasure. She is very communicative and responsive and is there to help in any way to help you build the perfect ceremony and met with us two times to prepare. She also has some ceremony examples to get your creativity flowing or if you would rather use something already created. We wrote our own, which was quite unique, and she was encouraging and accepting of it. We really enjoyed getting to know Barbara, and she helped counsel us on wedding traditions and ideas and used her vast experience to help us make our big day even better. Having her with us during this big event was wonderful, and we enjoyed her being there to join us as well as visiting with her after the ceremony. This was an overall fantastic experience with a very knowledgeable and professional individual, and we could not recommend her more for your special day.Sent on 05/20/2016
Alternative Weddings by Rev. Roberts's reply:Thanks so much Lia for your kind words. Your wedding will be one that I remember for years to come, maybe because of doing the "rehearsal" by the Coke and ice machines in the hallway of Amicalola Lodge. Y'all were so flexible and understanding, and a pleasure to do business with. -Barbara

Our wedding was officiated by Rev. Barbara Roberts at Montaluce Winery on the day of the Spring Equinox in 2016. Barbara helped us plan the ceremony and our personalized vows. The wedding, attended by our children and close friends, was picture perfect outside on the top balcony overlooking the vineyard. The vines were also announcing the first day of Spring with their tender leaves just beginning to show.
The date was chosen to signify a “new beginning” for us and in our lives. To further embrace the annual revival of emerging nature in the North Georgia Mountains, we concluded our ceremony with a Cherokee Indian prayer asking for the blessings of the elements of fire, water, air, and earth.
As Rev. Roberts recited this prayer, miraculously, the heavens opened, and the elements appeared – wind, lightning, thunder, rain, hail and snow, all within a matter of minutes. Despite the inclement conditions and because of the timely presence of the elements, our union was blessed in a most spectacular fashion. Rev. Roberts with her robe flowing in the wind appeared as a prophet of old leaning into the wind-driven rain, ice and snow to declare us man and wife. A wonderful memory and glorious start to our marriage. Thank you, Barbara!
Alternative Weddings by Rev. Roberts's reply:Yes, Jarrell, your wedding did have its share of challenges! But it was a beautiful ceremony and I enjoyed meeting your family and friends. May you have a long and peaceful life together from here on out.
