  • Countless people remarked how much they loved our minister. Not the music. Not the food. Not the flowers. Not the jewelry. It's difficult to describe the perfect inflection, tone, readings, controlled yet free flowing structure that made everything perfect. It's not so much about perfect logistics of the service but the messaging and the emotions that Barbara is able to effectively bring about in everyone. It was amazing what Barbara added to our service and her presence should be her signature trademark. Yes, there was plenty of hand holding, which we appreciate. She has templates prepared to for those of us who are lost in wilderness of choices. Thank you for a great day that I will always remember.

    Oh, Lorie, you are a poet. And I am deeply touched by your words. My goodness. Thank you. It was an honor to be a part of your and Rhonda’s wedding and to share in all the love of your family and guests, not to mention your fur children welcoming committee. It was a beautiful time of love and I was so lucky to get to share it with all of you. Thank you for including me. I know you are going to have a beautiful life together.

Barbara calmed our nerves on the big day, and we were so thankful to have her by our side when we said "I do!" We highly recommend Barbara for couples that are interested in spiritual ceremonies, however she was able to add any religious undertones that we requested.

  • My husband and I married on a weekday this past September, and when it came to our choice in officiant - we absolutely couldn't be happier. Barbara is the sweetest person, and one of the most organized professionals I have ever met. From our very first meeting, to our conversations via email, and even to our very late start day-of due to a transportation fluke: Barbara made us feel at ease - it was the easiest decision of our whole day! What's even more is that Barbara genuinely cares about her couples - which is quite evident in our pictures! If you live in the triangle area and are looking for an amazing person to share your day with - Choose Rev. Barbara Lodge!

    responded with the following comments.

    Such kind words, Dominique. Thank you. What fun it was to help you and Dereck create the perfect ceremony to celebrate your 9th anniversary. It was a total joy to be around your fun personalities and that shows up perfectly in the photos you posted. Hugs and happiness to you and your families!

  • We changed our wedding plans from a quick elopement at the courthouse to a small wedding in Mordecai. After reading reviews, I contacted Rev Lodge. She was flexible and was able to officiate our wedding with only two weeks notice. We had the most thoughtful, personal, and lovely wedding ceremony we could have imagined. We can not recommend her enough for a wedding!

    responded with the following comments.

    I so loved being a part of your sweet wedding in the charming old St. Mark’s chapel. You and Tommy were glowing through the ceremony and it made my heart smile to see it. Thank you for including me in the launching of your married life and for the lovely words you wrote above. I am very touched. Hugs to you both!

  • Barbara was a delight to work with from the beginning of our process. She was very flexible and accommodating in terms of our vision for our ceremony. Our guests thought it was the most personal wedding they had ever attended, because Barbara worked with us to make sure it was reflective of us as a couple. We also did a premarital counseling session with Barbara, which we really enjoyed, and felt it really prepared us for our life together as a couple - I'd definitely recommend it! We loved working with Barbara and couldn't recommend her more.

    responded with the following comments.

    Thank you so much, Sarah. You and Matt were a delight to work with, too. It was fun getting to know you and creating a special ceremony for you. Your horizons are so bright. May all your dreams come true in wonderful, unexpected ways.
