Brenda was so wonderful! We had a couple phone calls prior to our wedding to introduce ourselves and then filled out some questions that she sent us. Neither my husband nor I are particularly religious, so we were a little concerned about how we would put together a thoughtful ceremony. When Brenda sent us the first draft, we were BLOWN AWAY. She so perfectly captured our love and the sentiment we wanted to share. The ceremony itself was equally as wonderful. She was engaging, funny, and thoughtful. The length was perfect. We received so many compliments from our guests. It was everything my husband and I wanted in a ceremony and more. Thank you, Brenda!!Sent on 02/18/2020

Our Ceremony Was Perfect!
John and Brenda are a great team. We knew once we met them that we wanted to work with them and everything turned out perfectly. They wrote us a beautiful spiritual but non-religious ceremony that we absolutely loved and couldn't have imagined anything better. They provided us with the resources to make sure we were able to provide input into the ceremony that reflected our values and love for each other. On our wedding day, John performed our ceremony with professionalism and sincerity. Our guests commented several times on how lovely it was. Thank you both so much!Sent on 10/17/2019

Warm and Wonderful!
Brenda is amazing. I feel so fortunate to have found her when looking for an officiant. We made an immediate strong connection with her when we first met to discuss our wedding. Brenda's husband is also an officiant and acted as our backup in the event there was an emergency. Check out their website for information on all of their offerings. They are truly warm and wonderful people and we were very honored to have them as part of our special day.Sent on 12/20/2019

Fun, loving, and completely awesome!
Brenda was the officiant of our dreams, who was able to show the traditional and modern in our ceremony. We really loved her energy, and she was the most helpful on the day keeping everyone calm, happy and together! I would highly recommend her to anyone!Sent on 07/30/2019

Excellent wedding ceremony
We were looking for a quiet and nice small wedding ceremony, short and sweet; Brenda made our special day an excellent experience. She provided a few samples and readily implemented all changes we wanted, developing a wonderful and meaningful wedding ceremony, tailor-fitted to our desires. Her responsiveness and cheerful attitude added to the wonderful marriage experience. Thank you!Sent on 06/21/2019

An Absolute Pleasure!
Brenda was an absolute pleasure to work with for our wedding! She was helpful, responsive and open to our ideas ahead of the ceremony when nailing down the vows and general feel of our day. Aside from how great she was while preparing for the wedding, her delivery of our vows to our crowd was perfect. Brenda is well spoken, confident and loving in how she communicated our message to our friends and family.Sent on 06/12/2019
We highly recommend her to any couple planning a wedding! She's perfect!
Sacred Celebrations, LLC's reply:Thank you both so much for the kind words, but I can’t take all the credit. You are an amazing couple and it was easy to express that! Much happiness to you!

Blissful ceremony, perfect blend of our wishes
John wrote and celebrated our May 18, 2019 ceremony. We felt immediately comfortable after talking with him and Brenda over Skype. John then brought his poetic gifts to creating a rich, detailed, and perfect ceremony for us. He did a splendid job of honoring our desires for a deeply personal ceremony combining the scientific, spiritual, and religious. He included motifs unique to us in ways that surprised and delighted. He and Brenda encouraged us to edit the ceremony and we didn't want to change it much at all! Religious and non-religious attendees alike from our family told us how beautiful the ceremony was.Sent on 06/27/2019
John was also extremely flexible with timing, and didn't miss a beat when the sound system cut out in the middle of the ceremony. Our guests in the back row could still hear his sonorous voice :).
We would highly recommend Sacred Celebrations!

Amazing hand fasting ceremony!
We loved having Brenda as our officiant! We hired her after another officiant fell through and things could not have been smoother. She took our vision for the ceremony and made it real. She performed a beautiful hand fasting ceremony that we will remember forever. She rolled with the rainy weather and all our guests enjoyed her as well.Sent on 05/24/2019
Sacred Celebrations, LLC's reply:Thank you Liberty for your kind words. It was truly a pleasure celebrating your wedding. I wish for you Stephen all the best life has to offer.

The Best Officiant!
Brenda was absolutely amazing! She is the sweetest and worked with us to create the perfect ceremony. I had some many people after the ceremony telling me how wonderful it was because it was so personalized and filled with love and I couldn't agree more! She made everything so simple for us and walked us through everything we needed to make sure we had all our paperwork in order. You can tell how much work and love she puts in all she does. She even created a beautiful certificate for us to display! I am so happy we choose to work with Brenda, she is simply fabulous.Sent on 12/05/2018
Sacred Celebrations, LLC's reply:Thank you so much, Natalie! I’m so delighted that I had the honor of being your officiant. I wish for you & Jake all the happiness in the universe!
Kristen · Married on 10/26/2018
Brenda was phenomenal. We booked her services at the last minute (one week out!) and she was immediately responsive and entirely willing to work with us to craft our perfect wedding ceremony. Her upbeat spirit and innate supportive nature meant the world to us. Before the big day, we spoke via Skype to get to know one another better and it was incredibly comfortable. We cannot say enough good things about Brenda and the way she elevated the celebration of our marriage. She even provided us with a hard copy of our ceremony script as a keepsake of our wonderful day.Sent on 10/28/2018
Sacred Celebrations, LLC's reply:Thank you so very much for your kind words. It was truly a pleasure and I'm just delighted I was able to step in share your day! Much love to you both!

I highly recommend Sacred Celebrations. Brenda Barry officiated our ceremony and from the very first Skype call, Brenda was a pleasure to work with. She is professional and very personable.Sent on 11/05/2018
My husband and I appreciated that the creation of our ceremony was a collaborative effort, which made it unique to us.
We received lots of compliments on the ceremony and the officiant.
The overall experience was A+.

Unique and Special Experience
Brenda officiated our ceremony. She was easy to work with and we knew we were in good hands the moment we started to work with her. She gave us the type of ceremony we were looking for and truly made it magical! So many people commented after that while it was a traditional ceremony, Brenda made it about us and added the right touches to make it special and unique. It was an amazing day!Sent on 10/24/2018
XiaEdwin · Married on 09/15/2018
Brenda and John did a great job as our officiant. Brenda customized the beautiful ceremony draft for us based on our own experiences and personalities, while John’s elegant experiences and quick reaction at our ceremony made it just perfect. They carefully listened to and adopted our thoughts and opinion, and attended the ceremony and rehearsal in advance to make sure that everything goes as planned on time. We feel so lucky to have picked Sacred Celebrations for our ceremony.Sent on 10/02/2018

Thank you so much for being part of our day, you were the highlight of our event!! Thank you for being so great and we loved having you there!!
The only thing I would change about that day is to remember to invite you to stay for the dinner. I was very busy and I wish I had asked you to stay around. But other than that you were great and all guest were talking about your talk!! I also loved your hat that day, which gave our day a character!!
Thanks for all you did.
God bless you!!

John and Brenda could not have been anymore helpful on our special day. They were extremely friendly and professional with very timely responses. John was a breath of fresh air and made us feel very comfortable during the ceremony. During the original consultation we all got to know one another before hand which made things flow very smoothly. We specifically wanted a celtic hand tying ceremony and they fulfilled this perfectly. I could not recommend them anymore as people and as professionals!Sent on 08/27/2018
Theresa and Daniel · Married on 06/23/2018

Brenda was an ABSOLUTELY AMAZING officiant for our wedding. She was the first person we interviewed and we didn't even bother meeting with other potential officiants because she was so personable. She responded to every question super fast and made sure the ceremony was exactly as we wanted. All our friends and family assumed we had known her for years because of how personalized her talking points were in our ceremony.Sent on 08/25/2018
