  • If we could give Laura a million stars, we would. We were on and off with moving forward with our wedding, so we found Laura last minute. Laura is personal, a great listener, and very accommodating. She made our ceremony exactly how we imagined it to be. She respected our ideas and thoughts and even proposed her own thoughts on how to tailor our ceremony to fit our needs. She made us feel comfortable and at ease during times of stress and anxiety! We can't thank you enough for creating the ceremony of our dreams!

  • Laura did a fantastic job at listening to the ideas my husband and I had for the vision of our wedding ceremony. She incorporated traditions form 2 religions and did it seamlessly. When I talk with family/friends they ALL comment on how heavenly and special the ceremony was. Laura is very professional, she makes you feel like family and I also really appreciated her flexibility and timeliness. She did a magnificent job and we are still so pleased that we worked with her on such a momentous occasion. Thank you Laura!

  • Laura Barry is the best officiant my husband and I could have ever asked for. Laura took the time to get to know us on a personal level, and walked us through exactly what to expect on our wedding day. Laura truly cared about making our ceremony special and she did just that; I cannot tell you how many people came up after the ceremony to let me know how wonderful her service was; I couldn’t agree more! Highly recommend Laura if you’re looking for a personal, thoughtful ceremony.

  • I have attended several wedding ceremonies where Rev. Laura was a very energetic, confidant and eloquent speaker. It was obvious that she devoted significant time with the couple in preparing for this special event. Her style and delivery ensured that the ceremony was personal to the couple and interesting to their families and friends.

    Maureen, Thank you for your review. I try to make sure the guests enjoy the ceremony as much as the reception :) I do put in a lot of time to make it unique and really appreciate your noticing and commenting. Laura

  • Reverend Laura does an amazing job performing wedding ceremonies. I’ve been to a couple of her weddings and she does a beautiful job speaking about the couples journey that led them to the best day of their lives. Her ceremony is personable and touching. My daughter is getting married in August, and is thrilled that Reverend Laura will he performing her ceremony. I highly recommend Reverend Laura, as she is not only witty, but the message relayed for couples is one to remember.

  • Laura did a fantastic job with our ceremony. My husband and I were living out of state at the time and she went out of her way to set time aside to talk with us. Her process to learn about the couple is thorough and detailed. Our ceremony fit us perfectly and was everything we wanted. We had multiple people come up to us after our wedding telling us how they loved our ceremony. I highly recommend Laura for your wedding.

  • Having Laura perform our wedding ceremony was one of the highlights of the night. She told our love story in a way that made our family and friends feel even more connected to my husband and I. She spoke with us many times before the wedding to get a feel for how we wanted the ceremony to flow and what parts were important for us to include. We absolutely loved having Laura perform our ceremony and would recommend her to anyone!

  • We met Reverend Laura Barry while she was the Hospice Minister for my father. It was always a pleasure having her around. She is spiritual yet down to earth. So we asked Rev. Laura to perform our wedding ceremony. She personalized the ceremony that people thought she knew us for years. Rev. Laura made our ceremony spiritual as if it was at a church, and yet it was laid back for we had a few laughs. Everyone enjoyed our ceremony and still today they talk about it. Thank you Rev. Laura for making our day so special!

  • Laura was recommended to us by a friend, but she was not the only celebrant we interviewed. We were quickly reassured by Laura's warm personality and professionalism that she would set the right tone and deliver the ceremony we wanted, and she DID!

    Liz, Thank you for your review! So sorry for the reply delay. It is only because of my lack of web-awareness. Your outdoor ceremony was lovely. You and Bob put a lot of thought into your special day! Thanks again, Laura

  • Laura is the best! She helped craft the perfect wedding ceremony for us - bringing in some great ideas to meet the expectations of some of our more religious family members in a way that matched our more unitarian beliefs. She was positive, thoughtful, insightful, energetic, and understanding throughout the planning process, as well as amazing and comforting on the big day! We even had her give a blessing to our daughter after she was born because we loved working with her so much and liked the idea of having the same person who married us give the blessing :)

    Caitlin, Your wedding at the Michener museum was just amazing! Thank you for the review and so sorry for the delayed reply - didn't even know I could do that. I enjoyed getting to see Ava and meet Charlie on your last trip home. Such beautiful children. Thanks for trusting me with your ceremony. Laura
