Our dream came true...
Rev Barbara Roberts literally helped our dream of "simply" getting married come true.Sent on 11/06/2020
In the wake of all that's gone wrong in 2020, we realized we just wanted to be married to one another. Not much planning went into the occasion, to be honest. Thankfully, Rev Roberts was incredibly flexible and erased just about everything from her schedule to marry us with very short notice.
We leaned on Rev Roberts for everything from when and where to pick up our marriage license to helping us choose the perfect spot to exchange vows. We decided not to invite a crowd of friends and family because for us - all that mattered was being with one another at that moment.
I simply cannot say enough good things about our day and our experience working with Rev Roberts. We would do it all over again! Above all else, we would recommend requesting Rev Roberts to officiate your special moment, no matter how much planning you want to do.
She made our dream a reality!
Alternative Weddings by Rev. Roberts's reply:Thanks so much for the kind words about my services! I really do appreciate it. Luckily, I have lots of experience at being flexible and was glad I could help you out.

Quick and easy ceremony! Just what we wanted!
We are so happy we found Barbara! We decided to elope in the mountains and wanted a simple and easy ceremony. She was quick and responsive in her communications. Her website had great examples of ceremony language which made it easy to put together what we wanted.Sent on 11/01/2020
Alternative Weddings by Rev. Roberts's reply:Thanks so much Hayley for your great review of my services. I truly do appreciate it and wish you and Michael a long and happy life together.

Amazing officiant for same sex marriage!
Rev. Barbara was the best officiant of our same sex wedding. We eloped in the blue ridge mountains and we’re worried that we wouldn’t find anyone we felt comfortable with marrying us. Rev. Barbara made all of those worries go away. She was thorough, patient and kind. We would recommend her to anyone looking to getting married in a cabin in the mountains.Sent on 11/22/2020
Alternative Weddings by Rev. Roberts's reply:Thank you ladies for the review of my services. You two were definitely out in the woods for this wedding! That's the first time I've ever had to take Forest Service Road 339 to get to a site - I thought I was never going to find it. But it was a beautiful spot and the weather couldn't have been nicer!

Professional and accommodating
Rev. Barbara Roberts was incredibly professional and was very knowledgeable throughout the entire experience. We were able to book her to officiate our wedding with ease through her website. She provided many options as far as ceremony styles and content. We were able to narrow down to a style we liked and wanted a bible verse at the end and she was more than accommodating to do so. The best part about booking Rev. Roberts is her communication! She will get back to you promptly and answer any questions you may have. Because of her professionalism I had no doubts of what our ceremony would like. I knew it was exactly what we wanted and she made that happen! Highly recommend!Sent on 11/16/2020
Alternative Weddings by Rev. Roberts's reply:Christine you are so sweet to say that about my services. You were a joy to work with as well, getting your choice of ceremony to me in plenty of time for me to prepare it for you. Thank you so much for that and for being so prompt in writing a review. I didn't expect you to do it on your Honeymoon! Have a great life together!

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.

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
Alternative Weddings by Rev. Roberts's reply:I always love doing weddings that are different, and yours fit that description. Thank you for the review and may the three of you have a wonderful life together! -Rev. Roberts

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!
