  • Rev. Barbara Berlin Wedding Officiant/Minister

    (86 reviews)

    We will tailor your ceremony to your wants and needs,It's your day and I want your ceremony to reflect the love that you and your spouse share. Whatever you want if I can do it I will . Our experience is that many couples will spend a great deal of time finding the right place for their ceremony, selecting the food and wine for the reception, the dresses for the bridal party, the flowers, and the photographer to capture it all, and not really give that much thought to the ceremony itself. I think part of the reason for this is that many who are getting married today simply don’t know where to begin. I believe the ceremony, itself, is the centerpiece of the wedding.I can assist you in creating a ceremony that has meaning . If you choose not to use our services, we wish for you much joy and happiness. Married life is a wonderful and challenging adventure; may you enjoy and learn from your journey together. FOR THOSE HAVING OUTDOOR WEDDINGS(lake side,beach ,parks ect.) ,We PROVIDE A PA SOUND SYSTEM, WITH LIGHT WEDDING MUSIC ,FREE OF CHARGE !!!!! No electricity No problem . I WILL ONLY ACCEPT DEPOSITS VIA CHECK OR PAY PAL . NO FULL PAYMENTS WILL BE ACCEPTED UNTIL TIME OF SERVICES (ALONG WITH MARRIAGE LICENSE ) . Thank you . Pay Pal available .

  • Weddings by Neal

    (9 reviews)

    An independent Christian minister, I provide all Christian rites (marriage, baptism and burial). My wedding ministry includes a custom-written ceremony that you approve of, performing it and a rehearsal, for $250.00. Your special ceremony can be on the religious side, or more on the spiritual side, as you deem appropriate. Together, you and I will craft the ceremony of your dreams! I do not require classes nor counseling; however, counseling is available, if requested, at no charge. It is my Christian duty to perform counseling services for free. My clients love that I am a trained public speaker, with a fairly deep, easily projected, easily understood voice. They tell me that my sense of humor is my biggest asset. My clients also tell me that I am easy to work with. I am probably the most liberal Christian minister you ever will encounter.

Thumbtack Spotlight

Rev. Barbara Berlin Wedding Officiant/Minister

(86 reviews)

What do you love about your job?

The work I do allows all couples to take part in creating the ceremony of their dreams. The independence that I have doing this work grants me the flexibility to meet the needs of my clients. I want to create a difference, big or small, by making my clients feel special.

What or who inspired you to start your own business?

My husband has been my biggest inspiration on this journey. From the beginning, he gave me the confidence I needed to really make this work.

My clients have also played a big part in my success. Their reviews and word of mouth have put my name out there. I could not have made it this far without them. Of course, my own belief in marriage and being able to take part in the most special day of someone's life inspired me the most.

  1. #1 Weddings by Neal

    (10 reviews)

    Benjamin D.

    It is so difficult to put into words just how amazing Neal was. He was literally a God-send for my wife and me. From beginning to end, he made our wedding experience so much more perfect than we ever could have imagined. We ended up writing our own ceremony with him, which made it beyond special. Every question we had, he answered with intelligence and haste. The man is a well of knowledge, and when we look back on what led up to our special day (and the beautiful ceremony itself), we can do nothing but smile with tears in our eyes. Neal is now a life-long friend and brother to us. We highly recommend his service to any couple looking to make their wedding the most memorable and happiest event of their life. Trust us, you will be ecstatic with your decision.
