Introduction: She's the best wedding officiant-minister! Let’s face it, the ceremony is the prelude to the after party for the guests! Barb takes your ceremony to the next level. The guests are included in the ceremony and they will hear your love stories! Barb is an ordained, inclusive wedding officiant. I like to have a face to face meeting or at least a video meeting, so we con discuss what is important to you, how I can present your “love story” at your wedding. My belief is that your wedding ceremony needs to be personal to you, not just the legal stuff before the party! Your ceremony needs to reflect the two of you. Is it fun? Thoughtful? Emotional? Silly?! If you would like a simple elopement, I will help you with that too. The photos you want are the ones which will capture your memories. Your wedding day is an event you’ll never want to forget. From saying your vows to watching those closest to you share touching remarks, there are so many memories in the making. Whether you’re the bride or groom looking for a heartfelt quote or preparing for your special day, we will capture these memories. OUR PHOTOGRAPHY AND VIDEOGRAPHY Your photos and video from your wedding are your FIRST HEIRLOOM as a married couple.

What can I say about Barb and Scott? My father became very ill, so my fiancé and I decided that we needed to have a commitment ceremony so that he could have an opportunity to walk me down the aisle. When he was admitted to the hospital right before our scheduled day, Barb was incredibly understanding, kind and considerate of our circumstances. She helped us find a new date to reschedule and on the day of, performed a truly beautiful and memorable ceremony in my parents' backyard. She customized her readings, prayer, and vows to our liking and brought me to tears. Scott was able to capture some beautiful photos of my family and our little "flower girl" or "best mammal" during the ceremony and after. Despite the situation, we couldn't have asked for a better officiant and photographer for our beautiful and emotional ceremony.

We just had the most wonderful wedding with Barb officiating on the beach at Anna Maria. It rained earlier in the day but cleared for the wedding. Barb met with us via zoom- asking us to write out personal information about us as a couple, which she then included in the ceremony. Her husband then took the wedding pictures which we are eagerly awaiting. We did get 4 initial pictures which were great. Thanks again Barb and Scott!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Package pricing is available for combined officiant and photography services. PLEASE ASK! Your wedding officiant Barb will do a wonderful ceremony which you will see and approve prior to your wedding day. The fees for an officiant are $150 within a 50 mile radius. Additional services requires a discussion. Your wedding is your special day and we will do everything to ensure your memories are properly captured. Photographing your wedding and making sure your photos are great takes time to complete. We will post a few sneak peeks within a day or two and 14-21 days for the remainder which will be sent in a thumb drive with edited pictures. We can also provide wedding albums, wedding event books and beautifully framed pictures as an option.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I like to set up a meeting with you initially or a phone conference to discuss what you are looking for in a ceremony. We will also discuss your venue and if you need a rehearsal and the wedding party. Once I know what you want, I'll send you the ceremony which you will look at and decide if there are any questions or changes you would like to see. Also we'll discuss your vows whether you will write your own or if you need help writing them. The photography of your wedding is very important as well. I will work with your wedding planner and/or DJ to ensure we get all the pictures you want. During Covid we will use any available precautions to ensure your safety and our safety.
