This prestigious award is determined by reviews from past clients and recognizes the top five percent of wedding professionals from the WeddingWire Network. This means that Reverend Barbara Lodge is in the top five percent of wedding professionals in North Carolina and the entire nation.”

An example of a review on, from Maryann and John;

“We couldn't be happier that Rev. Barbara Lodge performed our wedding ceremony for us. We have received many compliments on the beautiful and heartwarming ceremony. It was quite moving and very personalized. We attribute this to the time that Barbara took to learn more about us as a couple.

Rev. Lodge is a true professional. She provided guidance and clear direction to us throughout the wedding planning process. She gave us a tool kit which contained a CD with suggested readings, vows, songs, etc. Her command of runnning a wedding ceremony was evident during our rehearsal. The detailed and well-run rehearsal truly helped us to relax and enjoy our ceremony!

We highly recommend Rev. Lodge to any couple looking for a kind, caring and organized professional who delivers beautiful and memorable wedding ceremonies.”

“The Knot Best of Weddings Hall of Fame is comprised of wedding professionals who have won The Knot Best of Weddings four or more times... they are the best-of-the-best!


An example of a review on The, from Carolyn and Mike;

“My husband and I would highly recommend Reverend Lodge. Her positive energy is evident from the first moment you meet her, and she makes you feel completely comfortable as you decide what you want in your wedding ceremony. Reverend Lodge has numerous materials and unique ideas you can use and also is great at running with your ideas. My husband and I are both lawyers (so we are very picky about word choice), but the ceremony she put together for us was absolutely perfect. The ceremony truly reflected both my husband and myself, and everyone at the wedding commented on what a wonderful job she did. Our best wedding decision was choosing Reverend Lodge as our officiant - she is positive, professional, and calming.”
