She met with us and created an incredible, custom ceremony that captured our relationship beautifully. We received so much positive feedback about Rev. Lodge from our guests, as well. She is absolute perfection.

  • We absolutely loved working with Barbara! She took the time and care to make our wedding ceremony exactly what we wanted. She took the time to listen to us, hear our story, and get to know us so that she could write the perfect ceremony that fit who we are as a couple. She's the sweetest officiant and everyone at the wedding talked about how great she was. I would recommend her a hundred times over to anyone looking for an officiant for their special day!

  • 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!

  • Having Rev. Barbara Lodge as our officiant was the best decision we ever made. She is so warm and kind and wrote an incredible wedding ceremony completely tailored to us. The ceremony she created was a complete expression of our relationship and the love and devotion that we share for one another. We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful and meaningful ceremony. Planning with Rev. Lodge was so easy and she genuinely loves getting to know her couples! We couldn't have asked for a better officiant and will cherish our beautiful ceremony forever!

  • 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!

    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 recommended to us by the Arrowhead Inn Bed and Breakfast as the officiant who has assisted couples with the celebration of their marriages for years. Barbara is extraordinary--both as a human being and officiant. Barbara welcomed us into her home and spent quality time getting to know the two of us as both a couple and individuals. Barbara offered suggestions that ultimately made our ceremony one-of-a kind and the way in which she was able to weave words together as a celebration of our love created memories for us and our guests that will last a lifetime. Barbara cares for those with whom she works and we will cherish our experience with her always.

    What kind things to say, Amy. Thank you. It was an honor to help you and Eric have a wedding that fit you so well. You couldn’t have chosen a more perfect environment for your intimate wedding and watching your faces as you said your vows to each other was sweet beyond words. Beaming smiles always add a special magic to weddings. Have a great, adventurous life together!

  • One of our best wedding decisions was hiring Reverend Barbara Lodge for our wedding ceremony. We knew we wanted our wedding ceremony to be unique, personalized and not too religious. After meeting with Rev. Lodge at her home, we emailed her the same evening to tell her we would like to hire her for our wedding-we didn’t even want to interview any other officiants. We left her house excited to start planning our ceremony and felt like we would be in the right hands. We chose to do her personalized ceremony and although she wasn’t the cheapest reverend we found we like that she gave us an abundance of information to help us while we planned. We met with her again in April to start the planning process. We had already chosen some elements of our ceremony and she helped us figure out the rest. We incorporated a blessing of the hands ceremony, a wine box ceremony, and a special reading. She was so easy to work with and we knew we could contact her throughout the ceremony planning proces...

    Such kind, kind words, Kayla. Thank you so much. I loved being a part of your wedding and watching you and Cody interacting in your special ways was icing on the cake. The beautiful anniversary box you and Cody made from your grandparents’ old barn wood is sure to become a treasure on so many levels. I hope all the love you place into your letters each year will manifest in your relationship through the years. Hugs to you both!

  • From our first virtual meeting with Reverend Lodge, we were struck by her sincerity and the genuine pleasure she took in getting to know us and our story. This was in stark contrast to many other potential vendors we talked to during wedding planning, whose enthusiasm was forced and shallow, and inspired us to book her for our wedding immediately after the consultation. We chose her complete personalization package, and it was evident from the final product and all of our interactions with her along the way that she took great care in crafting a meaningful ceremony that incorporated all the elements that were important to us. During our virtual planning meeting (all meetings before the rehearsal were virtual as we live in a different state from where we were married - these were extremely easy to schedule with Rev Lodge, who accommodated us with weekend meeting times), she patiently answered all our questions about how the ceremony would unfold and provided suggestions for how we could...

    Sarah, I am so touched. Thank you. I was just thinking about your and Eric’s wedding the other day and how beautiful all the little touches you included were. Watching you serve tea to your parents brought tears to my eyes at the time and again, recently, when I was speaking of it to my daughter. I know you are going to have an amazing life together. Hugs to you both!
