    Rev. Robert's was great to work with. Her website made it a breeze for us to put our ceremony together. She made it such a laid back and easy experience! We got to custom make our ceremony and everything went perfectly smoothly on the big day. She was a pleasure to work with!

    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...

    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!

    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.

    Barbara was excellent. We met with her in person before the ceremony to discuss everything at Ammicolola Falls resort. We had to change our plans due to the rain and she was very accommodating. Would highly recommend her. Very warm, friendly and professional.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    Regards,

    John-M. (and Ben) :-)

    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.

    Jones Harrison Wedding
    Montaluce Winery
    March 20, 2016

    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!

    I wanted someone that could easily handle our mixed view wedding. My family is very southern Baptist and his was not religious. I wanted something that was more spiritual and about us and the world around us than about a sermon. Rev. Roberts was amazing. She met with us before the wedding to help create our vows and made it easy. Our wedding ceremony was a hit, everyone thought it was beautiful. I would definitely recommend Rev. Roberts as she was very pleasant to work with, affordable, and took the time to get to know us as a couple. We are so thankful to have found her.
