"She seemed to feel genuine joy for our wedding as though we were family to her!”

- Demie 


Did you grow up, as I did, attending many weddings, where words were spoken and vows were taken- but they had little to do with the couple getting married?  In recent years, a new kind of wedding ceremony has emerged.  Often, it takes place outside of a formal house of worship- but more importantly, modern couples seek a more meaningful and personalized wedding ceremony- one that truly reflects who they are. Whether you are seeking a ceremony that is secular, religious, spiritual but not religious, or combining traditions- it is my job to listen to you, make suggestions and to help create a vision for YOUR perfect ceremony.  Without exception, every ceremony I officiate- from quick elopements to large affairs with hundreds of guests, is custom-crafted and delivered with warmth and elegance!


I am Reverend Barbara Nahmias, an ordained, Interspiritual minister and celebrant in New York City- but please call me Barbara or “Rev Barb” as most people do!  For me, joining two people who are in love is more than just a means of making a living- it's my soul's calling! I strive to be the island of calm a couple can turn to as I officiate over one of the most sacred, exciting and intimate moments in their lives.

Creating Your Ceremony

Some couples have a clear vision of the kind of ceremony they would like and others need help creating that vision. Sometimes partners have differing ideas.  No matter where you are in your vision, it is my job to help bring to life a ceremony that truly reflects you!  
 There is a lot to consider, and that's where a professional officiant comes in with suggestions, guidance and wisdom.

If you want a ceremony that celebrates your love and your individual selves - Rev Barbara is the person for you. Since the first conversation, she was warm and extremely helpful. She paid attention to our (very different) cultures and our (very similar) ideologies and created a ceremony that was fun, relaxed, and full of love. She was very friendly and respectful to our guests as well. I cannot recommend her enough!
