Hi, my name is Barbara; I am an Ordained Minister in the Full Ministry of Gaiabriel since 1998 located in Fishkill, NY. My practice is in the Spiritual Healing Arts facilitating Rites of Passages, Meditation Groups, Spiritual Counseling and Hands on Healing.
A friend asked me to officiate her wedding. As I was performing their ceremony I knew this was what I love and was meant to do. My goal is to get to know you and provide choices so we can create a ceremony that fits your personalities .I will assist you in any way I can to create a joyful wedding experience. A bride and groom were referred to me, when I met with them they said we have a date set (in 2 weeks) and a dress. That was it. With some coaching, suggestions and a whole lot of love, they indeed were married at the place of the bride’s dreams and on the date they had set.
I congratulate you on your engagement and look forward to meeting you.
We just had our wedding at The Flakirk Estate and Country Club on November 11, 2012, and couldn’t be any more pleased with the whole experience. Reverend Barbara was sensational. She really worked with us to create the ceremony that fit our personalities. She was very sweet and kind and loved having her there with us on our special day!

Booking through Hudson valley ceremonies was easy. Good price and no problems. What I most appreciated was Barbara. She took a special interest in our ceremony and I feel like she really cared about making us happy. We had a couple meetings in person and over the phone. She always had interesting ideas to incorporate and ended up giving us exactly what we wanted. She says she just really likes weddings, and it shows.
