  • Barbra was so great! We got so many compliments on how lovely the ceremony was. We also opted for the Pre-Marital Counseling sessions she provides beforehand, which I would highly recommend and made us feel that much closer to her by the time of the ceremony. Thank you Barbra for being so supportive and thoughtful!

  • 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 recite and helped incorporate the children into a "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 wou... Read more

  • Barbra recently officiated our wedding and was wonderful. She was clear and concise, worked seamlessly with the photographers, and received many compliments from our guests. Initially we had a skype session with her and really liked her easy demeanor and professionalism. We were asked to email her a bit about ourselves individually, which she ultimately worked into the sermon, giving it a very personal touch. We gave her a very broad vision of what we wanted the ceremony to encompass (we are not religious) and when the day came, it was spot on. She offered to let us read it before, but mentioned that it was sometimes fun and more spontaneous to let it be a surprise. We would recommend letting her surprise you.

  • Barbra was an incredible officiant for our wedding. We could not have asked for a better ceremony -- it felt incredibly personal, intimate, and very special. Our guests raved about Barbra for weeks. We feel very blessed that she was there for us on our big day.

  • Barbra was absolutely amazing as an officiant for our wedding. We met with her several times before the big day, and she was always available to calm nerves with all the anxiety and craziness leading up to the big day. She was wonderful with providing advice for writing vows and arranging the ceremony exactly how we envisioned it to be. As for the ceremony, it was perfect. Countless wedding guests commented after the ceremony that Barbra's service was incredibly personal. It was as if she knew my partner and I our whole lives. The ceremony was extremely individualized and personal, all of our wedding guests were moved by her words. My husband and I cannot recommend Barbra highly enough! She is absolutely amazing and professional!!

  • Barbra was absolutely amazing! We came across her merely by chance through a last minute reference and are we glad that we did! It's been over a year since she married my husband and I, and our friends and family are still talking about the ceremony. They say it is hands down, the best wedding ceremony they have ever been a part of! We definitely recommend Barbara as a wedding officiant!

  • Words fail me for the dream we shared under the canopy of eucalyptus as we stepped into our future with Barbara at the helm. You have to appreciate our capricious nature and disregard for planning. Barbara was delightful and supportive in feeding our whimsical approach to ceremony. Everything was beautiful on that day and Barbara was a key component to the memory. In a ceremony as intimate as ours, the officiant plays a more significant role and she was up to the task. LOVE HER.

  • Choosing who is going to marry you is extremely stressful! My family is Jewish and my husband is Greek Orthodox so after much debate, we made the decision not to get married in either religious venue. This started our quest to figure out who was going to marry us. I wanted a friend of ours to perform the ceremony while my husband wanted a professional minister. My mom suggested that we contact our family friend Barbra who specializes in interfaith marriages. After our first meeting with Barbra, it was clear that she was the perfect person to marry us. Over the course of nine months, she worked with us to craft the perfect ceremony that incorporated Jewish traditions such as smashing the glass and Greek traditions such as the Stefana Crown Ceremony. Barbra combined traditional vows with fun personal stories about our lives. We also wrote our own vows (which I highly recommend) and combined with Barbra's words, it truly felt like the perfect blending of our lives. So many people came up ... Read more

  • It's my pleasure to review Barbra Mousouris. She was our officiant at our wedding last year and she was nothing short of incredible. She spent time getting to know Jonathan and I as individuals as well as a couple which resulted in a ceremony that was filled with intimacy, romance, laughter and tears. You could feel the deep emotion Jonathan and I have for each other from the words Barbra articulated. We hired an officiant but walked away with a family friend and when we renew our vows in 25 years, we will call Barbra!

    awww thank you sooo much Tina! I was so honored to marry such a beautiful inside & out couple! xoxoxo

  • We were so lucky to find Barbra to officiate our wedding. It must have been meant to be, because we called her in April (our wedding was in July) and she was booked throughout most of the summer but had our date available. When we met her, I knew we had a perfect match. She is so warm and made us feel at ease. She did an amazing job at our ceremony and we had several guests comment on how much they liked her. I would definitely recommend Barbra!

  • In all honesty, we are brought to tears when we think of how wonderful Barbra is. Barbra is, by far, the most loving officiant we met. She took the time to get to know us both personally and as a couple, and wrote the most touching, intimate, beautiful ceremony for our wedding. In a time when things were stressful and very busy, Barbra was calm, caring and very much helpful. We cannot imagine having had anyone else perform our ceremony and become part of our lives. We are in touch even now, and she truly is a part of our family now.

  • Barbra was amazing. There simply are not enough words to express how the perfection of our day was eased along by having her officiate. She was always happy to make suggestions and available at any time I needed her. This was so important, having her helped keep me grounded. And she put together the most romantic, and personalized ceremony - friends and family continue to tell us that it was the best ceremony they've been a part of. We shined through every word - Barbra is the best!!
