Barbara did a wonderful job for our wedding ceremony. When we began looking for a wedding officiant, I looked at different officiants online but decided on Barbara based on the reviews and the pictures on her site. She is prompt on correspondence and made the whole process stress free. We arrived at the beach the day before the wedding and Barbara made some wonderful suggestions in selecting the location for the service.
The day of the wedding she arrived early and took time to explain the paperwork one more time, and she was easy to talk and fun to be around. Charlie and I are big jokers and Barbara played into which made the wedding fit our personalities. Everybody in attendance laughed and had a great time and that was in part to Barbara working well with us.
Her service was wonderful and beautiful and I have watched my video of it several times. Her words are chosen carefully and are beautiful. I am extremely grateful for Barbara performing our service and being part of this beautiful moment in our life.
Charlie and I are extremely grateful.

My fiancé and I came during Jose and our wedding was scheduled during some high winds and rain.
Barbara was very easy to work with, changing the time of our ceremony in total 3 times to make sure we were able to get married on the beach as I dreamed and just miss the rain during an hour window.
Even though we had not met Barbara until right before the ceremony, she made us feel at ease and like we had known her for years.
Everyone at our wedding raved about her. She was wonderful!
If you are coming from out of town or in town and need someone I would highly suggest using her- she is amazing
We also wanted our ceremony to be based around our blended family and to include the children which she did perfectly
Anthony and I would like to thank you for making our wedding day so very special! From talking to you on the phone the very first time, until the moment you left after the ceremony, I knew you were the perfect fit for us!!!! Your kindness and Love Light shine so bright that even Hurricane Jose didn’t stand a chance! LOL Through the wind and the rain our family said it was the most BEAUTIFUL ceremony ever and that we couldn’t have picked a better officiant!!!
Thanks Again Barbara!
Love and Hugs from,
From the first moment of contact to the day of our wedding Barbara was a true pleasure to work with. We live over 6 hours away and she always stayed on top of everything and even sent us TONS of links to wedding resources in the area to make our long distance wedding planning a breeze! Barbara is so personable and really set our minds/hearts at ease even after a mandatory evacuation due to hurricane Maria.
If you are looking at these reviews trying to decide who to pick as an officiant STOP right now and email or call Barbara, you will not regret it. It felt more like a dear friend was marrying us, not someone whom we’d never met. Barbara, thanks again for everything.
It was a true pleasure working with you!!
I don’t even know where to start! Simply stated, Barbara is AMAZING!
We fell in love after our first email and feel like we have a life long friend!
Barbara supported us throughout our wedding process to create a ceremony that reflected who we are as a couple. We are so grateful for her and the impact she had on making our day amazing! Barbara took the time to get to know our stories, our beliefs, our courtship, and so much more. She provided us with materials that helped us structure our ceremony, and ensured that things we indicated were important were included. She remained patient, flexible, and incredibly helpful throughout!
We highly recommend Barbara as an officiant for couples seeking a ceremony that is personalized, while also still deeply meaningful.
Every single person who attended our wedding commented on what an amazing ceremony we had and how wonderful Barbara was.
On July 29th, three days before our wedding ceremony the island was under a mandatory evacuation for all visitors due to the island wide power outage. Emotions ran high as we could not believe another obstacle would stand in the way of their dream wedding. Luckily we found a hotel in Nags Head for a few days and Barbara and Jenni (Epic Photography) agreed to change the location off the island, to make their wedding dreams come true. It may have only been us and our three children, but is was the most beautiful wedding I could ever dreamed of.
Barbara was so sweet and her sermon was so heartfelt it brought my husband and I to tears. The short time we had with Barbara made you feel like you knew her years and we will never forget the beautiful ceremony she performed.

What a heartfelt ceremony!!! Reverend Mulford is an awesome officiant. She replied to our emails/phone calls right away (leading up to and the day of the wedding) i got married in front of our rental home and even our neighbors watching from their deck said it was a beautiful ceremony – we could tell that she put a great thought and effort in officiating the ceremony!! we highly recommend!
Elliott and I can not thank you enough! You helped make our wedding day one of the best days of our lives. From the start you were beyond accommodating and were extremely quick with your responses. We gave you such a short amount of time from the time we contacted you until the day of our wedding but you put us to ease with your assurance that we could depend on you.
You took the time to get to know us and made sure our ceremony represented us well. You delivered a beautiful messaged with meaningful words and put us at ease with directions throughout the event. I honestly cant recommend you enough!! It is clear you put your heart into it and that you truly care about your clients. You have such a joyful demeanor that without a doubt transcended into our ceremony. We are truly so grateful for you and feel so blessed that someone so special married us!
We went through dozens of websites before finding Barbara. Once we saw her website, we knew she was the one.
We are in Ohio, and we had a ceremony up here so our family would be present to hear our vows and then we had a big party for friends and family. But, we wanted to be officially married in the Outer Banks which is like home. We are hoping to relocate down there after the last child is out of college!!
We got a hold of Barbara and she was to marry us on Valentine’s Day this year which fell on a Sunday. We needed to be at the government offices on Friday to obtain our marriage license.
Well, we were in town on that Friday, but we took our time checking into the beach house and shopping. A snowstorm actually hit that weekend, and it was bad enough on Friday to close the government offices early so we could not obtain our marriage license!
So, Barbara was gracious enough to meet us on Jeanette’s Pier anyway on Sunday, which was so cold and blustery, and we went ahead with the ceremony. But, Barbara could not pronounce us husband and wife without our marriage license. So, she had us meet at the government offices first thing the next morning with our witnesses in tow, and we finished our ceremony there!
She handled all the paperwork and even gave us marriage certificate with Valentine’s Day as the date! She was so wonderful about the whole thing and having to meet twice!
She made it fun and we have a great story to tell! She was kind and compassionate! She made our experience very special and we will always cherish what we shared with her on the pier and at the government office. She had beautiful words for us and it meant so much that she was the one to make it official for us!
We feel we made a friend for life and we will recommend her to everyone!
