The Reverend Dr. Gary Barmore
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 two make all final decisions regarding the content and feel of the ceremony.
It has been my privilege to officiate weddings in magnificent sanctuaries, quaint chapels, gardens, beaches, resorts and homes. Memorable venues range from “Dark Tower” in Joshua Tree, to Coto de Caza for the “Real Housewives of OC,” to Newport Bay aboard classic yachts, to the porticos of the Ritz Carlton, to the backyards of suburbia, to churches I have served over the years.
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. So by my voice and eye-contact and by material the three of us develop, I will make memorable moments that lift up commitment, celebration (maybe some tears) and love.
My professional fees are reasonable, and remember that I am here to serve all people (religious, non-religious and in-between) because this is your marriage event.
Congratulations on your plans and the love that is building your life together. Contact me to talk things over – I’m here to serve.
