Barbara often receives the acknowledgment, “You nailed it!”
Barbara brings the presence of peace, love, and beauty to every ceremony while creating a meaningful and heart-warming memorable experience for the bride, groom, family, and friends. She spends time getting to know each bride and groom, guiding them through the wedding process. With warmth, joy, humor, and grace, she will tenderly weave your love story with specially selected readings, poems, and prayers, making your ceremony extraordinarily unique and precious. Your exquisite love deserves the perfect ceremony!
Through three decades of teaching yoga, mindfulness, and meditation, and many years of public speaking and writing, officiating weddings is a natural evolution of her deep spirituality. Barbara loves what she does, and considers it a privilege to spend time with couples crafting this most exciting event in their lives.
Every ceremony she designs includes traditions and elements the wedding couple wants family and friends to experience. Each type of ceremony she officiates—religious, non-religious, spiritual, multi-cultural, interfaith, and same-sex ceremony—is vibrant and highly personalized to the wedding couple. Barbara refines each ceremony until it is profoundly heart-opening, reflects your deepest love, and is perfect. One of her brides stated, “We were in loving and capable hands. Barbara created a ceremony that was calm, spiritual, genuine, and full of love which was our exact vision for how we wanted it to be. Our friends and family could not stop talking about our touching and thoughtful ceremony.”
