August 2023 wedding

Working with Barb Peters was a pleasure. She provides great advice to make the wedding go smoothly and stress-free. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a wonderfully pleasant, cheerful and professional person to perform their ceremony.

Barbara was an absolute pleasure to work with! We wanted our friend to perform the ceremony, but still needed an officiant present on the day to make everything legal. Even though Barbara did not perform our ceremony, she was always available to answer questions, and still helped me write my ceremony, providing guidance and templates, and ensuring all of our pre and post wedding paperwork was taken care of. I would absolutely reccommend Barbara! She was also way more pleasant to deal with than some of the bigger local companies we looked into.

The wedding was beautifully conducted. We got in contact with Barbara 1.5 months before our wedding, which gave us ample of time to prepare and customize our vows. The ceremony was short sweet and exactly how we dreamt of.

Barbara was an excellent officiant. She helped us personalized our service so that it was a reflection of us and that made the day extra special. I would definitely recommend Barbara for her professionalism, dedication to personalizing our ceremony, and flexibility as well as her positive and accommodating approach to us and our day. Thank you for helping to make our day memorable.

Barbara was lovely and very professional. She gave us no problems or extra worries. She stuck to the script that she let me edit and re-write parts of. I appreciated that she let me be as anal as I wanted. We wrote our own vows which was amazing.

Barbara was amazing, her professionalism and ability to work with our ambitions on our wedding day made it so easy!
From the first contact, to greeting myself (the bride at the car) everything just flowed perfectly.
We cannot express our gratitude enough, our wedding would not have been the same without her and we cannot recommend her enough for anyone considering her services for their day.

As a second marriage, we wanted our ceremony to be simple but thoughtful. Barbara has a beautiful way of weaving pieces of our conversation into our ceremony and vows. It was exactly what we wanted! I highly recommend Barbara as an officiate in your special day!

My husband and I were married on NYE during the day and Barbara made it extra special! She really got to know both of us and was very accommodating in all areas of the wedding ceremony itself! We were given choices that fit exactly what we were looking for and felt so comfortable with her officiating our wedding. We could not have asked for anyone better!!
