Ordained in 2011 from One Spirit Interfaith Seminary and licensed by the State of New York, I have officiated hundreds of weddings in the NY/NJ metropolitan area. Why do couples choose me? Many say right from the start that I seem to "get" them, that they immediately feel comfortable with me. They sense my confidence, experience and joy in working with couples. I have no agenda of my own- no preaching or dogma! My only job is to listen and reflect back to you, in the form of a beautiful, personalized ceremony, the unique couple you are!
“From the start we felt like we were in great hands. She took the time to get to know us. She asked us important questions about our relationship. She crafted a terrific ceremony for us that was exactly what we wanted. We received so many compliments on our ceremony. It would not have been the unique and special occasion if we were not lucky enough to find Rev Barb!”
- Holly and Jeff
Even the smallest, last-minute ceremonies are customized and personalized. You can be as involved as you want, or you can leave it all to me. Whatever you choose to do, I promise you, your wedding ceremony will be unique, joyful and memorable
“The time and effort that Rev.Barbara Nahmias takes to get to know the participants results in a highly personalized ceremony that touches all present in a way that a ceremony that has been repeated hundreds of times cannot!”
When your “big day” comes, I am there for you, taking care of every detail from music cues to mike checks. But most of all, I strive to be the island of calm you can depend on as I officiate over one of the most sacred, exciting and intimate moments of your lives!
