Love Prevails Over Darkness

 I felt so bad for my amazing couple, whose MOXI wedding was scheduled for March, with all vendors lined up for a super fun wedding...then one week before the wedding, MOXI had to shut down due to the pandemic.

This sweetheart of a bride (and her groom) had such a lovely attitude during this challenging time...and yesterday we "tied the knot" so they could have their wedding ceremony.  We will do another fun wedding at MOXI next year.

Love does overcome darkness... and this difficult time made them realize more than ever how devoted to one another they are.  It was very moving for me to see how moved they were!

And the frosting on the cake: about 20 dolphins leaping right behind the ceremony.. magical!

Wedding Guest Accolades


One of my lovely couples had to reschedule their Paso Robles Wine Country Wedding due to covid.  They eventually decided it was important to have the wedding ceremony they had dreamed of, albeit in a different location and date, opting for the groom's father's garden in Irvine, Ca.  It was a good reminder that love is resilient, and the vows and coming together in love is what it is all about.

I appreciate these kind words from a guest of that wedding:

"I recently attended a wedding ceremony in Irvine, CA, which was officiated by Barbra Mousouris. Both Barbra’s wide experience and strong, upbeat and light presence made the ceremony a joy to behold. Barbra’s loving and easeful energy spread over the venue and over all those present, uniting everyone there in the spirit of love, truth, and commitment.  It was one of the most moving experiences of my life. 

It is plain to me that Barbra’s intention, wit and personable character make her a top choice for anyone interested in having the best wedding officiant for their unique and profound ceremony."  RB

Your Day Will Come!

I understand the disappointment my couples have faced since having to postpone their special day.  I also know that through challenges comes strength and wisdom, and that when that magical day DOES happen, it will be so appreciated, with even more joy at finally experiencing what really matters...Love. Love that has endured disappointments and uncertainties.  Love that's time has come to be celebrated in all it's imperfect brilliance!  I am holding all my brides and grooms in my heart, and know that the future dates we have changed will be perfect.  In it together, Barbra

Wedding Wire Review:

10+ Stars to Barbra
From the first call to the day of the ceremony Barbra was so wonderful to work with! We wanted something relaxed and unplanned for our elopement ceremony. I was worried about not knowing all the details and Barbra was so caring and easy going about letting the day unfold perfectly for us. I could not have asked for a better day and Barbra was a huge part of making it so PERFECT! I will be forever thankful to her for the light, loving, thoughtful energy she brought to our wedding day.
