I just want to express my admiration and appreciation for the meticulous, wonderful work you do. I’d like to think I have a faint idea of everything you put into a ceremony and I believe a sincere ‘beautifully and exceptionally done’ is in order.

As a witness to many officiants’ differing styles and work ethics I can say, in all honesty, that you are the best at what you do.

Joel Abrahamson

Just wanted to reach out and thank you again so much for everything last weekend. It was so magical, and people couldn’t stop talking about how fantastic you were (and we agree, of course!)

Sam and Blair

Once again we were so happy opening our box and re-reading through our ceremony and vows. You did such a great job and we just can’t thank you enough for everything you did for us.
We got to open our wine this year, we are now a family of three…plus two fur babies! Beau was born February 18 and is the happiest, sweetest little man! Life is sure different but in the best way possible.
Great to hear from you!

Lakeisha, James & Beau

Thank you for your beautiful ceremony. We loved all that you said and how you delivered it. We received so many compliments about the ceremony which is a reflection of the passion and unique individualized approach you use. Thank you for the beautiful start to our love story.

Arwen and Tandy

I’m glad things are going well for you and you’re still doing what you love! You’re very good at it. I think people can experience ‘wedding fatigue’ but a customized ceremony that is tailored to the people actually getting married and offers a chance to reflect on why people partner for life is a good antidote to that.

Take care,
Aaron and Katrina

When we started looking for an officiant, one of the main reasons we chose Barbara was her passion for this! Her care, effort, and experience were evident in every step.

Her experience helped us to craft a custom ceremony, with deep meaning, and significance in every detail (oh, and mild pyrotechnics in the finale of our ceremony!).

We loved one of her goals; that couples will leave their wedding ceremony and truly “FEEL” married. Through her questionnaires that we completed, our meetings with all together, and finally the big day itself, we are happy to say that this goal was achieved.

Andy and Lindsey

Thank you so much for your support and guidance through our ceremony. It was the most incredible day, and both of us were so emotionally affected by your beautiful ceremony. I think it’s safe to say that everyone really was! Going into our wedding planning we thought we would just have a short ceremony to make things official, but through the process we realized how much we wanted to say about our relationship and our life together. Your words and your presence took the ceremony to another level we didn’t know we needed, but we are so incredibly thankful it went there. Joel and I both agreed that we could have ended the day right there, at the end of the ceremony, because it was so perfect! That’s all we needed! And it’s all thanks to you.

Again, Barbara, thank you so much for being a part of our wedding. It wasn’t just the day, it was the days leading up – you got to know our families, you spent time with us, you became a part of the journey. It was really beautiful and something we will cherish.

Joel + Elizabeth

Married life is only just starting to get back to normal and oh how we are loving it!
We cannot thank you enough for everything you did for us, from helping us prepare for the day to making us feel comfortable and confident and embracing our family and friends on our special day.

The number of compliments we had about the ceremony were amazing, everyone was touched and thrilled by your kind and honest words. And to receive them bound so wonderfully will be something we cherish forever.

Rhona and Dan

It’s been five months since our wedding and I still cannot put into words the heart and craft that goes into Barb’s spoken poetry. From our first meeting to each and every time we run into her in town now we feel like we’ve known her forever. We crafted a ceremony that reflected us. Truly us. She took the time to get to know us together and individually and gave us moments that we will truly remember and cherish always. There were tears and laughs and “rock, paper, scissors”. She gave us… us. We could not have asked for a better celebrant. Our guests still tell us that our ceremony was so fitting, so intimate and precious. She is a true artist and has the warmest soul. We are so grateful to have worked with her.

Iola and Max

Thank you so much for your amazing work! We have just found time to read your draft together. It required a few breaks to wipe away tears and for tender kisses. We are awed and pleased by how you so beautifully encapsulated our thoughts, words and feelings. We think you are magic!

Carmen and Bill
