Thumbtack Review

Thank you for the 5 star review KS! "After the wedding, so many of our friends asked us how we found our officiant. They were all so impressed with the way she captured our love. One friend mentioned that she goes to so many weddings and Barbra was the best she's ever seen. There were moments of laughter and moments of tears. It was truly a beautiful ceremony." It is my honor thank you!!

Tuscany in California

Yay, I got to officiate another glorious wedding at Sunstone Villa. The flowers were once again over the top, super romantic setting by La Fete weddings with arbors filled with chandeliers and candles in the vineyard, and a very romantic groom's vows! More pix to come by Terri Smith! ...and this sweet message from the photographer! "I just wanted to say...You are not an officiant! You are a talented storyteller who painted their journey in finding each other and the huge love they share. You made it SO much more than two people getting married. Bravo! Applause, applause, Standing Ovation!" ...awww... it is my pleasure!

Firestone Crossroads Estate + Wonderful Couple = I love my "job"!

Kasey & Lauren were the sweetest couple with a heartfelt was such an honour to be a part of writing and performing their wedding at pretty much my favorite venue.  The former home of dear friends of mine, the estate includes a gorgeous rustic elegant barn for reception, lovely old oaks and sophisticated valley charm.  Here is their sweet note to me after their wonderful wedding:

" Barbra was an absolute joy to work with. From our very first meeting, it was clear that Barbra was intent on getting to know my husband & me on a very personal level in order to make our ceremony as authentically "us" as possible. She created a beautiful, emotional and moving ceremony that suited our family just perfectly. We wanted my husband's two children to serve an integral role in the ceremony, as it was extremely important the day signified all of us becoming a family. Barbra worked with us to find the perfect reading for the children to participate in and helped us to devise a beautiful "family tree" ceremony. Her pre-wedding questionnaire was extremely thought-provoking and helped us both write our own personal vows to each other. She helped us keep our non-religious ceremony short and sweet, but full of rich words, love and strong, spiritual content. Barbra took all the stress and worry out of planning our ceremony and helped us to channel our focus in the right places. We are forever grateful to Barbra for her contribution in making our wedding day the most lovely & joyous occasion filled with memories that will make us smile for all the years ahead!
Kasey & Lauren "

The appreciation is mine...
