Barb is amazing!

Barb is absolutely amazing! She helped make sure that our ceremony and the events leading up to it ran smoothly and she made us feel confident during a time that could easily be seen as stressful. She put my worries at ease and made me feel confident in her ability to provide a beautiful ceremony. Barb is so kind and professional and she even checked in with us afterwards to ensure we were doing well. I would highly recommend Barb and am so grateful that she was part of our day!

Excellent! Barb is amazing.

Barb was amazing at giving guidance to help the ceremony go smoothly. She has a great sense of humor and was available with any question not only about the cermony but has great insight into details couples most commonly forget about. She truly wants to make your ceremony what you want it to be.

Barb was absolutely amazing! She did everything she could to make sure that our day went off without a hitch. I would recommend her 100 times over! She worked with us, through out the rehearsal to make sure we knew what was going to be happening the next day so we weren't lost. All while making us laugh! 😄
