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.

Highly recommend Rose Barboza!
Rose was such a joy to work with, we loved having her officiate our wedding! She was very warm and personable, and we felt she was the right person to marry us. We were impressed by her website, as well as sample vows. Rose was very responsive, had great communication, and was easy to work with. I would highly recommend Rose to any bride or groom. Thank you, Rose!!!

When it comes to your wedding, there are several things that are important- DJ, Flowers, Food, Liquor... but the one who really takes the pressure off is the officiant. Rose did a phenomenal job officiating our wedding. From the moment we picked her she was available to talk, FaceTime, and answer all my stupid little questions that I was freaking out about. She sent me the whole ceremony and then resent it once I’d told her all my little quirks so when it came to “game day”, there were no surprises up at the alter. I knew every word and what to expect with every beat (which was a huge deal for me as I have a spot of stage fright!) Rose was amazing, comforting and supportive the whole way. She kept it light and fun (as we asked) and we couldn’t have chosen better than her!

Great to work with!
Rose is professional and friendly. Though we were hundreds of miles apart, she worked with our schedule by video chatting, emailing and texting when necessary. She gave me pointers when I needed it. Day of the wedding, I was running a bit behind schedule. She was patient and helpful. Great to work with!

Rose officiated the ceremony for our wedding on August 19, 2018. She was incredible!! We felt immediately comfortable with Rose the first time we spoke and she has such a warm, comforting nature about her! Rose was incredibly organized and professional. She helped us formulate our ideas and created a beautiful ceremony, as if she had known us for 20 years! Rose is well-spoken, kind and I would highly recommend her to officiate any wedding! Thank you for such a memorable occasion!

Rose, thank you so much for making our wedding day special! You kept us calm throughout the whole ceremony. From the very start your attention to detail was superb, from jumping on skype as we were organising the wedding from Singapore, to meeting us face to face in Sonoma 6 months before our big day. We loved your calmness, jovial spirit and when the little things went wrong you kept the crowd entertained. We would highly recommend you to anyone getting married. Thanks Kevin & Deirdre

Rose is kind, positive and really tried to get to know us in order to deliver a perfect ceremony. She gave us suggestions to help us think about what we might want for the day, and asked a lot of questions. Her style made our wedding ceremony very personal and meaningful, but also a very warm and truly joyful occasion.

Danielle · Married on 08/11/2018
Rose was wonderful! She kept the ceremony lighthearted and made both of us feel at ease by using stories we wrote to each other as well as some light humor that fits both of our personalities. The ceremony was exactly what we wanted. Rose also worked with our witnesses after the ceremony to complete all necessary paperwork and took care of sending the paperwork into the County for filing. Thank you so much Rose for making our ceremony special and personalized to who we are!
Marissa · Married on 08/04/2018
Rose has this unique ability to make your wedding ceremony fun and light while at the same time strong and professional. We'd recommend Rose in a heartbeat! Our guests and family members are still talking about what a fantastic job she did at our wedding. Rose was always readily available for phone calls to discuss changes/details. Rose thank you for making our wedding ceremony so perfect!
Katie · Married on 04/14/2018
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.
Inga · Married on 03/24/2018
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.
Laurence · Married on 03/16/2018
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!
Peter · Married on 10/21/2017
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.
Calysta · Married on 10/07/2017
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.
Georgia · Married on 08/26/2017
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.Sent on 09/08/2017
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!

Rose was excellent! She was professional, available and communicated everything clearly. I would highly recommend her to anyone in need of an officiant.
Kaleena · Married on 05/20/2017
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!
Christina · Married on 05/12/2017
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!
Tom · Married on 04/15/2017
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.
Natalie · Married on 04/10/2017
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.
Sarah · Married on 12/10/2016
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.

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!
