Reverend Lodge was an absolute joy to work with. I contacted her based on reviews I read online that spoke very highly of her. Within the first five minutes with Rev. Lodge I knew she was the right officiant for us. We hired her for our outdoor spring ceremony and also to be present for the rehearsal (so glad we did). She has such a warming, kind, and outgoing spirit, which is the exact tone we wanted for our wedding. She was incredibly easy to work with, giving helpful and creative suggestions and working around our schedules. She helped us create the perfect ceremony that was personal to us and our traditions. As the wedding day came, she did not disappoint! She projects her voice just perfectly with a heartfelt, warming, and genuine tone that lifted everyone‚Äôs spirits. She is an incredible speaker and did a wonderful job helping us through the ‚Äúteary‚ÄĚ moments and also was wonderful at making light of a few distractions during the ceremony. Reverend Lodge did an outstanding job and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for an officiant.
Barbara was absolutely wonderful. She was professional, receptive and very easy to work with throughout the entire process. Barbara conducted a ceremony tailored to our liking... I received lots of feedback throughout the rest of our wedding day about how great Barbara was. She was both heartfelt and professional - two great qualities you'll want on your wedding day!
I can't comment enough to express my happiness over having Reverend Barbara Lodge join me and my husband into a lifelong union. I was worried over the coodination of the event. Once I arrived, just the look in her eyes showed me the confidence she had that everything would be fine and go off as planned. She made sure everyone knew what they were supposed to be doing and when. Aside from that, Barbara is very kind and genuine. Her ceremony felt intimate and warm. I would recommend her to anyone!!!! I'm a very happy bride :)
My wife and I really enjoyed working with Barbara. In fact, people were inquiring about about her at the reception. She was great to work with.
Reverend Barbara created a very personal service for our wedding. She listened to our story and with our collaboration she captured who we are in the finished ceremony. Everyone in attendance thought it was as perfect as we did!
My husband and I were very pleased with Rev. Barbara Lodge. When we decided to get married in 2.5 weeks and thought we would never find an Officiant that could do a midnight ceremony after the ball dropped on New Year's day, Rev. Lodge came through for us and was very excited to be a part of it. She had no issues staying up and alert past midnight and made our ceremony very special and stress-free. She was on-time and prepared even though we opted out of having a rehearsal. The standard ceremony that she does is beautiful and fit us perfectly and we could even tweak it slightly to fit our personal beliefs and preferences. We could not have asked for a better Officiant to marry us!
Barbara was a dream to work with! She really got to know both of us and made the ceremony about us. I knew she was the one we wanted to use the first time we met with her. She really walks you through all of the wedding steps so you don't have to stress about it. I would recommend her to anyone from any denomination. She is really the best!
Barbara was the perfect officiant for our wedding! She eagerly took into account all of our desires for our ceremony and offered us many suggestions for special ceremonies to fit into our wedding. She approached us with an open mind and welcomed our input into each part of our day. She is organized and thorough, always responding to emails promptly and able to adapt to last minute changes to the plan. Overall, we couldn't have had a better experience with a wedding officiant. My husband and I highly recommend Barbara lodge to all couples!
Reverend Lodge provided us with a beautiful, personal ceremony for our wedding. In meeting her, we found Barbara to be interested in the tale of our romance, and eager to acquaint herself with us in order to create a unique service according to our beliefs. We happily and fully recommend her to any couples out there seeking a wedding officiant. Her presence is kind, her words reasoned and joyful, and she will help you plan (and accomplish!) a genuine wedding ceremony.

Rev. Lodge simply could not have done a better job! While it seems that the whole day went by in a flash, the ceremony is the part that has managed to resonate with both of us the most. We requested Reverend Lodge write a custom ceremony for us which really made our special day feel very personal. She was able to convey everything that made our relationship special in such a beautiful way that the moment seemed almost surreal. Having Reverend Lodge as our officiant was one of the best wedding decisions we could have made. If you really want your special day to be perfect, the first thing you should to is talk to Reverend Lodge.
Barbara Lodge is hands down the best officiant we could have ever imagined. From the very first meeting she got to know my husband and I and customized a ceremony specifically for us. She gives you all of the information you need including common ceremony music, traditions, and other ideas to make your ceremony unique. I cannot express enough how truly wonderful she is. Also, she is the sweetest woman and always helpful. I hope that she makes your big day as special as she made mine and Alex's.
Barbara was absolutely amazing. Every single one of our guests made a point to mention to me how eloquent she was and how impressed they were with how smoothly the service ran. We did a wine/letters box ceremony during our wedding and it was beautiful. I can honestly say that I wasn't at all nervous because I knew that if I forgot something or messed up somewhere Barbara would make sure we got back on track. In a wedding officiant I would want someone organized, professional, creative, intelligent, friendly, warm, and with a soothing speaking voice. Barbara was all of these things and so much more. I couldn't be happier!
We loved Barbara! She is such a wonderful person, and so helpful. She gave us a lot of advice leading up to the wedding, and did a great job during the ceremony. We invited her to our reception dinner as well, and we all had a fabulous time with her and her husband. Our families liked her very much. I would recomend her to everyone.
Barbara was very professional and worked with us even when we changed our minds on some of the ceremony details several times. She is very easy to work with and wrote a beautiful address for the ceremony. Thanks Barbara!
Barbara was great and very easy to work with! Barbara gave us a packet of information which helped us put together the foundation of our ceremony when we met with her for the second time. She also asked that I write up a brief history of how my husband and I met which she incorporated into our ceremony to give it that personal touch. My husband, myself, and all of our guest thought the ceremony was beautiful!
Reverend Lodge officiated our wedding and she could not have been better! Not only was she a pleasure to work with, but she really made an effort to get to know us and captured our personalities and values as a couple in our ceremony. We received so many compliments regarding our ceremony and Reverend Lodge throughout the reception. I highly recommend her!
Barbara was great! She was very easy to talk to, very willing to tailor her performance to our needs, and was very professional on the day of the wedding (she showed up early and managed the paperwork with the license very efficiently). She is also a very good public speaker!
Rev. Lodge created an absolutely beautiful ceremony! We met several times before the wedding and got to know each other. Our guests are still telling us how beautiful the wording of the ceremony was and how it was a great fit. Rev. Lodge really seemed to care and made the ceremony planning fun and easy. I couldn't be happier and highly recommend her.
Reverend Lodge was perfect. We were so very pleased and appreciative of what she did for our ceremony. Her words were beautiful. Our ceremony was both solemn and light-hearted, which was exactly what we wanted. Reverend Lodge was both conventional and diverse; she is truly unique.
Reverend Lodge gave us a memorable service with words that we will never forget. Not only did we love the ceremony, but our friends and family loved it. We have been complimented countless times for the ceremony she conducted. We will cherish the beautiful ceremony she gave us and regard Reverend Lodge with the highest of respect.
Reverend Lodge offered us flexible packages. We enjoyed the time we spent with her before and during the service. She is amazing.
Prior to meeting, Rev. Lodge emailed us suggestions for vows and ceremony ideas. We met in person about 2 weeks prior to the ceremony, and she was very informative.
On the day of the wedding, she arrived about 3 minutes prior, with plenty of time to meet witht the groom and myself. She also had time to view the set-up of the room, and get the signatures of the witnesses.
The ceremony was personalized, and exactly what we wanted. We received so many compliments, and will forever remember Rev. Lodge's role in our perfect day.
