About Barbara Rose


As an ordained non-denominational minister, I have won the Hall of Fame Award on the Knot and Best of Weddings on the Knot for 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, & 2019 based upon reviews. Testimonials from couples and accolades from wedding guests praise my warmth and loving spirit and my ability to really “get” the couple.  I have often received the acknowledgment, “You nailed it!” 


I bring the presence of peace, love and beauty to every ceremony, while creating a meaningful and memorable experience for the bride, groom, family and friends. I spend time getting to know each bride and groom and guide them through the wedding process.  With warmth, joy, humor and grace, I will tenderly weave your love story with specially selected readings, poems and prayers, making your ceremony extraordinarily unique.  Your exquisite love deserves the perfect ceremony!


Through two decades of teaching yoga, mindfulness and meditation, and many years of public speaking and writing, officiating weddings is a natural evolution of my deep spirituality.  I love what I do and consider it a privilege to spend time with couples designing this most exciting event in their lives.  


Every ceremony contains traditions and elements the wedding couple wants family and friends to experience. Each type of ceremony I officiate—religious, non-religious, spiritual, multi-cultural, interfaith, and same-sex ceremony—is vibrant and highly personalized to the wedding couple. I refine each ceremony until it is heart opening, reflects your deepest love, and is perfect.
