Your Love, Your Day, Your Way

Barb officiated our ceremony and wrote a beautiful, sentimental and meaningful ceremony for us. She accommodated the addition of important cultural traditions and made a lasting impression on our guests. ~ Trudy C.

Of all the decisions that needed to be made for our wedding day, choosing Barb as our officiant was the wisest of all. Her honesty, warmth and desire to create the perfect ceremony for us was more than we could have asked for. ~ Alexis

Many thanks to Barb for keeping a cool head when we had frustrations obtaining our marriage license. She was able to talk us through a very stressful time and we managed to get the deed done with grace and satisfaction. ~ Sherry K.
