I help couples from all backgrounds by conducting ceremonies that ring true to the heart. Whether traditional or contemporary, indoor or outdoor, large or small, we will create together a service that fulﬁlls your vision.
For this momentous event in your life, my ministry is to set you at ease and allow the spiritual qualities of love and joy ﬂow through you and the community of support gathered with you. I offer various styles of vows (which you can edit or write your own) as well as readings, scenario suggestions, etc. but you make all ﬁnal decisions regarding the content and feel of the ceremony.
Whether intimate or grand in scope, I believe that your wedding should not only touch and reﬂect the unique souls you are and the one-life-together you are launching, but also it should inspire and renew the relational life of your invited guests. I am here to serve all people (religious, non-religious and in-between), because this is your marriage event.

Notable Wedding Review
From The Knot
Gary Barmore officiated our wedding. After the ceremony, family asked how long we knew Gary and how we met. He was so personal and passionate, people really connected with him. Gary’s voice resonated and caught everyone’s attention. We met once before the wedding to discuss the ceremony, expectations, and personal values. The meeting with Gary was enjoyable and stress free. Gary was responsive with all phone and email conversations. It is obvious he is passionate about what he does. It was a very positive experience.
