Barbara was beyond wonderful. She responded to my initial inquiry in less than an hour a it was around 7-8pm. I didn't expect that! As soon as I talked to her once, I knew that I wanted her for my wedding. Barbara will put any bride at ease because she is easy to get in touch with and truly thinks of everything- including which way the wind was going to blow so that my hair wouldn't get messed up! She took elements that we wanted and tailor made out vows and readings for us. Our ceremony was perfect and she made it fun- exactly what we wanted! I truly cannot imagine anyone else marrying us. I would recommend her to anyone- we loved her!
Words cannot do justice for the experience we had with Barbara. We were planning remotely from Chicago and she gave us a list of vendors, replied to emails promptly, and the warmth that she exudes via email and calls makes you feel like you're talking to a very dear friend. When she asked us to send her our "love story", I knew we made the right choice. The ceremony was PERFECT, Barbara is destined to be uniting people...her warmth and honesty and love for what she does makes it so beautiful. Cannot thank her enough!!

We can’t thank Barbara enough for making our wedding a wonderful experience! The ceremony fit our personalities perfectly! We wanted a simple sweet ceremony, just the two of us in a romantic location. As we live in Ohio we hadn’t met her before the ceremony, just a exchanged a few emails. But in those emails I could tell that she was the person for us! She was so nice and helpful, helping us get organized from so far away. She performed an amazing ceremony and we were blessed to find her. Thank you Barbara for everything and making our day wonderful

To say that we were a little disorganized before the ceremony would be an understatement of considerable proportions! Fortunately, we had Barbara take charge in gathering up the wedding party to push us out the door! Once the ceremony began; Barbara's beautiful words, tone, and cadence took a nice beach wedding ceremony to something way beyond our expectations. Many of our guests at the reception spoke to how great our officiant was that evening. I've been to many weddings where the ceremony was a snooze-fest, but Barbara kept everything light, enjoyable, and romantic. Not too short, not too long. She was the PERFECT officiant for our wedding!
My husband and I could not be happier choosing Reverend Barbara Mulford! Thank you for our amazing day.

Barbara is truly a GEM! She was very helpful not only on the day of our ceremony but from the very beginning of reaching out via her website. She sent TONS of helpful links on beach restrictions as well as links for vendors in the area. She made our ceremony very personable despite never meeting us! We had to evacuate due to surge flooding and Barbara gave us a heads up which allowed us to be ahead of traffic, that alone goes to show you how good of a person she is! If you are on the fence on who to choose, pick Barbara you will not be disappointed!!
Barbara was an absolute dream to deal with! Between phone and email conversations, meeting 6 months previous ( as we are quite a ways away from the OBX) and then the day before the wedding, she helped tailor our ceremony to our request. She was funny and relaxed ( because we needed her help to keep from crying through the ceremony), and rolled with the punches when friends started pelting us with nerf darts to calm us down. Our ceremony was beautiful and personal and she made our day perfect.
Barbara was absolutely amazing and accommodating. I would highly suggest her to anyone.
Barbara could not have done any better. She made us feel like family. I knew from the moment we spoke on the phone that she was the "one" for us. Our entire family said we couldn't have chosen better!! Highly recommend Barbara to everyone wanting the BEST!!!!!
Barbara is a wonderful officiant. She was prompt in responding to my email inquiries and explained the process clearly. She was easy to talk to on the phone, and arrives early the day of the service. She takes time to again explain all of the paperwork you receive when you pick up your license. She files the paperwork promptly for you and is willing to file your license on your behalf. Barbara's service is beautiful and she works to make the experience a very memorable one. She is definitely an officiant I would recommend. She did a wonderful job.
We loved Barbara!! She made everything go so smoothly from start to finish. Very responsive and more than willing to give you any advice or recommendations she can. She provided us with tons of vows, ceremony readings and scripture giving us options to choose from since we didn't want to write our own. She provided information and links on beach accesses for us to check out and even had some recommendations for other aspects of our wedding. The wedding ceremony was beautiful and I had several people comment on how lovely her readings were. We are SO happy we chose Barbara to marry us!! We highly recommend her!
I don't even know where to start! Simply stated, Barbara is AMAZING!
We fell in love after our first email and feel like we have a life long friend!
Barbara supported us throughout our wedding process to create a ceremony that reflected who we are as a couple. We are so grateful for her and the impact she had on making our day amazing! Barbara took the time to get to know our stories, our beliefs, our courtship, and so much more. She provided us with materials that helped us structure our ceremony, and ensured that things we indicated were important were included. She remained patient, flexible, and incredibly helpful throughout!
We highly recommend Barbara as an officiant for couples seeking a ceremony that is personalized, while also still deeply meaningful.
Every single person who attended our wedding commented on what an amazing ceremony we had and how wonderful Barbara was.
look no further, Reverend Mulford is the best!!
I must say that Barbara is the best and has absolute passion for what she does. When we met her, we felt her excitement and happiness for our decision of getting married. The ceremony was sweet and simple, but we loved how she included the history of the OBX. Andrew and myself truly have a complicated past and with all that we've dealt with our choice of marriage was a new beginning for us both. The words that Barbara spoke felt as though they were meant just for us. It was beautiful and heart warming. Thank you, Barbara for being a part of this special and truly blessed moment in our lives. God bless you!
I can't say enough great things about Barbara. Right from the beginning, she has been accommodating, patient and very personable. My new husband and I got married in our favorite place in the whole wide world - the OBX! We were looking for a very simple and civil ceremony. While she honored our request, she to care to make the ceremony extremely special and very personal. Even before the ceremony, she walked us through all the paperwork, and took care of everything immediately after we were wedded. Something also very noteworthy to mention - she was unbelievably accommodating and flexible when we had to change venues during the 11th hour...the weather wasn't cooperating. What a surprise :)
In short, Barbara brought a vibrant and positive energy to our ceremony, and she made it truly special. I cannot thank her enough. I highly recommend Barbara to be anyone's marriage officiant. She will make it a unique and memorable experience.
Barbara Mulford was always there to answer any questions or concerns that we had. She provided a ceremony that was definitely us. It was relaxed, fun and beautiful.
Couldn't have picked a better officiant for our 8/12/17 wedding.
Thank you so much for being apart of our day.

On July 29th, three days before our wedding ceremony the island was under a mandatory evacuation for all visitors due to the island wide power outage. Emotions ran high as we could not believe another obstacle would stand in the way of their dream wedding. Luckily we found a hotel in Nags Head for a few days and Barbara and Jenni ( Epic Photography) agreed to change the location off the island, to make their wedding dreams come true. It may have only been us and our three children, but is was the most beautiful wedding I could ever dreamed of. Barbara was so sweet and her sermon was so heartfelt it brought my husband and I to tears. The short time we had with Barbara made you feel like you knew her years and we will never forget the beautiful ceremony she performed.
Barbara was fantastic to work with! Very kind and professional. She made our ceremony unique to our requests and special.
Thank you so much for a wonderful ceremony in obx! You took the time to get to know us before hand, putting us so at ease & you were wonderful with our family. Everyone there remarked how great they thought you were. The Braggs, Ohio.
You will not go wrong with Barbara. She is incredible. We contacted her to officiate our elopement ceremony just two weeks before the big day. She was so supportive and helpful and efficient. Her words during the ceremony were so beautiful they brought me to tears!
If you're planning on getting married/eloping in the Outer Banks NC, do yourself a favor and have Barbara Mulford perform your ceremony. Not only is she very professional and more than qualified, she is also very kind and truly happy to be part of your special day. I am so happy we found her. It was perfect!
Barbara was the perfect choice for our wedding officiant. She goes above and beyond to make sure that her couples have answers to all their questions. She also offers great suggestions and references for additional vendors in the Outer Banks so that you aren’t choosing a vendor at random. I often reached out to Barbara when I was stressed out regarding other details of wedding planning and she always responded with great patience and advice. She also made an effort to get to know my husband and I before our wedding even though we live in another state. Any time that we were in town, she would try her best to meet up with us for coffee or lunch. In the days leading up to the wedding, Barbara was very organized and full of information. She provided us with a written copy of the proposed ceremony so that we could review and discuss it together ahead of time and she took care of all the details of the marriage license once we picked it up from the county. Our guests also mentioned that they were able to hear her entire ceremony, which is sometimes difficult to do in the winds that blow across the beach.
Barbara is a wonderful person who we look forward to keeping in touch with and visiting each time we are in the Outer Banks. We would recommend her to anyone looking for the perfect OBX Wedding Officiant.

Barbara was one of the best decisions we made regarding our destination wedding on April 10th, 2017. She was always fast to respond, easy to contact/communicate with, and always open to all ideas we had regarding our ceremony. She had the natural ability to relate to us and use our ideas and personalities to create the best ceremony we could have asked for. She is professional, courteous, and you won't go wrong with her performing your ceremony! !! Thanks for our special day Barbara!

Barbara was a dream to work with. Our first phone consultation was wonderful and really put my mind at ease about someone capturing our relationship and giving us the ceremony we wanted. Barbara sent lots of ideas to help with vows and readings and was also helpful with the handfasting we wanted to include. She was flexible when we need to make changes in the ceremony and even changing the day becauae of weather!! The book she made was beautiful and we will treasure her help in putting together the perfect ceremony for us!
Barbara was beyond amazing! She was very accommodating throughout all of our planning. She delivered a beautiful ceremony with meaningful words and put us at ease with directions throughout the event. I honestly cant recommend her enough!! You can definitely tell that she puts her heart into it and that she truly cares about her clients. She took the time to talk to us and get to know a little about us to make sure that her delivery was tailored toward us. She has such a joyful demeanor that without a doubt transcended into our ceremony. We are truly so grateful for her and feel so blessed that someone so special married us!
