150 Reviews for Weddings by Rose Barboza
Trustworthy reviews are our priority. Businesses can't pay to change or remove reviews.
We typically don't write reviews but I think Rose deserves a good one because she made our special day even more special :)
We had 2 weddings -one in Sonoma and one in Istanbul- and during our prep we had to deal with multiple illnesses/death in the family, so our wedding prep was very chaotic. However, Rosa nailed everything with perfectionism although we were lost in process. Now I understand better why it's important to work with a professional who does her job with passion and is smooth and creative in public speaking.
She was very accessible overall and she had a long interview with us in which she helped us understand the whole process. As the big day approached, we had an opportunity to go over everything with her which was a relief for us given the hectic days (we had our wedding in Istanbul 2 weeks before the one in Sonoma). We were even too busy to come up with an answer to "why do I love him/her?" until a few hours before the ceremony. !Shame on us! She proved that she is well-skilled as she was able to integrate them into her speech in the last minute.
In addition, she provided us with a non-religious/secular service because me and my husband have different religious affiliations. So, I should say she was great at meeting our needs in this manner as well.
Shortly, her gesture, tone, volume, professionalism, speech, outfit, paperwork, fee... anything and everything you can think of about an officiant was perfect!
We are so happy that we worked with her and we strongly recommend her.
Rose was our officiant for our wedding in April. She did an absolutely fantastic job and we received so many compliments on her ceremony. She was very responsive and a pleasure to work with.
Can't say enough about this wonderful lady! She makes every event something special. So glad we had her do our 20th vow renewal. Great communication, made the ceremony go flawlessly.
Such an amazing lady. The moment I spoke with her over the phone I was confident she would be the perfect officiant to perform the wedding. We were traveling from Florida so I wasn't able to meet her in person. When she arrived I felt like I knew her for quite a while. She really listens and will surprise you by adding personal footnotes that you might have forgotten you told her. She was warm and caring and really responded to being part of the ceremony. She even had a glass of champagne with us and stayed for a bit because she was so moved. She also is very detailed. You don't have to worry about anything with her. She's easy to contact and follows up with you long after the ceremony.
I highly recommend her.
If you are looking for the most amazing officiant ever then Rose is your gal! She is fun, professional, organized, and is always available to help you with any problem you come across. She definitely put the cherry on top of our perfect day and added to the beauty of our ceremony. She is the best at what she does and I highly recommend her to any bride and groom!
Could not be happier with Rose's professionalism and elegance. Rose was eloquent, well-spoken, and provided a touch to our wedding that was exactly what we wanted. There wasn't a dry eye in the venue. Well done, Rose.
Rose was amazing! I really wasn't sure what to look for in an officiant. My husband and I are not the very religious type, so we just wanted something short and sweet. I know no one enjoys listening to a ceremony where the officiant goes on and on. Rose was exactly what we wanted before we even knew what we wanted. All of our guests thought we had the most sweet and romantic vows, and it was all thanks to Rose! She made the process so easy and it turned out to be even more special than I had imagined.
I think the best thing I can say about Rose is that multiple guests asked us "Who is your officiant?!" because she is that good.
The ceremony was exactly what we wanted - laid back, sweet, and short (It was 100 degrees!). Rose's words fit perfectly with the vows we had written each other. Even though we had only met once, our guests really thought she must be an old family friend!
Rose made the whole process super simple and stress-free. She provided two different ceremony structures and were able to customize as needed. While we kept it pretty simple, she had lots of fun ideas I'm sure other couples would be super into. She is just beyond sweet and easy to work with. Our guests also told us that they appreciated how easy she was to hear and listen to - this is a lady who knows what she is doing!
Thank you SO much for this wonderful review....I would have personally emailed you but I do not know who you are...I am guessing G and J??? Anyway, thank you so very much for your kind words.
Rose was excellent! She was professional, available and communicated everything clearly. I would highly recommend her to anyone in need of an officiant.
Rose officiated our wedding May 20, 2017 at a winery in Sonoma and we couldn't be happier with the memories we made with her. We highly recommend Rose to anyone looking for a warm and special person to officiate your wedding. We had received referrals for and met with prospective candidates and no one could match our meeting with Rose. We knew she was "the one" from our first meeting with her. Our experience with Rose was that she is organized, professional, sweet and knows how to walk you through your special day. She is simply amazing!
Rose was great! Very flexible, and respected everything that my husband and I wanted. We never felt pressured into anything we didn't want to do, and Rose responded promptly to all of the questions we had during the process. Rose made everything quick, easy, and painless!
Rose is an amazing officiant! She worked closely with us beforehand to ensure that we would have a personalized, comfortable, and meaningful ceremony. She is so calm and caring and put us at ease throughout the entire process, from the moment we booked with her until the moment the ceremony concluded. We highly recommend her services for your wedding.
Rose was very personal and went above and beyond to make our wedding special. We loved how she personalized our vows by asking each of individually what we love about one another. We would recommend her to anyone and everyone.
Rose Barboza was excellent! From our first conversation to the wedding itself, she could not have been more helpful and responsive. She provided a very customized and special wedding ceremony for just the two of us. She had the great idea of including our children through their words of advice though they weren't at the ceremony. Rose is so incredibly nice, thoughtful, warm and caring and was just perfect for this very important milestone for us.
Rose was amazing, and so accommodating to our wishes and needs.
Thanks for making our very intimate day, so very memorable and special.

Rose officiated our ceremony earlier this month and I cannot express enough how wonderful she is! Rose is extremely professional and was quick to respond to any questions we had. She has a calming nature about her and even took time to chat with our daughter who was having some pre-ceremony jitters about her role as flower girl. We receiving so many compliments on her the ceremony she performed, most said it was the best ceremony they had every heard. Still bummed we didn't get a picture with her! Thank you Rose!
Rose was fantastic! My (now thanks to Rose) wife and I aren't overly sentimental and were looking for someone easy-going and personable and couldn't have chosen any better. The ceremony turned out perfect, and Rose did such a wonderful job conducting the service as well as guiding us along that it seemed even that much more effortless. Consequentially, I ended up referring Rose to a few other wedding guests!
We are so incredibly grateful that we chose Rose as our officiant. Despite torrential rains for our outside wedding and last minute stressors Rose was able to gather and organize our loved ones for a beautiful ceremony. Rose brings so much light and laughter to a wedding, a ceremony of love. She is fabulous!
Rose goes out of her way to make your day special! We would highly recommend! Our wedding at Chateau St. Jean was fabulous! Thank you Rose!

Rose made our special day very special indeed! I must first comment on her flexibility as we planned our wedding very last minute and very unconventionally. She was able to accommodate our last minute request and did so with a lot of enthusiasm. It is obvious she loves what she does and puts in 110% effort. She guided us along the way as we had no clue what we were doing. She was patient and funny and really made our vows special. Even our guests commented on how she did such a great job of combining sentiment with humor that really told the story of who we are while doing our vows. I would definitely recommend her!
My experience with rose was more than I could have imagined or even asked for. I was extremely nervous the day of my wedding and rose talked me through it and was really there by my side reassuring me that everything will be okay. She made the ceremony so smooth and I didn't give any thought as to what I should say, where I should be standing, or anything else as she did all the work for my husband and I to ensure that we had a magical ceremony. Rose knows how to get the job done and I would encourage anyone getting married to utilize her service.
Rose was absolutely a breath of fresh air in all the crazy! She is calm and sweet in her demeanor, and loves to get to know you as both an individual, and as a couple. She is someone that makes you feel comfortable and like you have known her for a very long time, even if its only been through email and one or two meet ups. She keeps things personal duing the ceremony, and makes sure you know what is going to be said and how you can personalize it to your liking. She always has a smile on her face and was definitely able to calm the nerves on the day of the wedding! Thank you so much for making our wedding special, we really think you are an amazing person and think everyone should choose you to officiate their weddings!
From our initial phone call with Rose, we knew that she was the right choice of officiant for us. She immediately connected with both of us personally and the sample ceremony she sent us was so much of what we wanted our ceremony to be that all we did was swap the order of some sections and tweak a few words with her.
She was able to give us a ceremony that was deep and moving without being religious and that captured a profound sense of romance without being saccharine. And she delivered it smoothly and with conviction.
Perhaps most importantly, she's a very warm and natural person. Going into the ceremony, we knew that one of us was going to get tongue-tied or would say something out of order but she'd be there to smile and gracefully get everything back on track. We were so happy to have her as part of our wedding day.
We were set on Rose from the first moment we saw her profile on Wedding Wire and so glad she officiated our wedding.
Rose was quick to respond to all questions, however silly they may be (and yes there were quite a few silly ones from me!) and kept us calm before the big day. Having booked a destination wedding from the UK we did not meet Rose in person before the day however we did have a lovely Skype meeting a few days beforehand which made us feel even more at ease.
The ceremony on the day was perfect, the vows personalised to what we loved about each other. She even put up with our best man forgetting the rings and having to run out midway through! A complete professional and we would recommend to anyone looking for the perfect officiant.
Thank you again Rose for making our day as amazing as it could be. x
Rose was excellent! She is easy going and made us feel very calm and comfortable on our special day.
Love- Norma and Robbie
