Barrett is currently unavailable due to being on tour with the Steep Canyon Rangers, a bluegrass band best known for collaborating with comedian/banjoist Steve Martin. Barrett is their new upright bass player and we are absolutely thrilled for him! When he is in a position to officiate weddings again, we will let you know.

Originally from Columbia, SC, Officiant Barrett moved to the mountains of Western North Carolina in 2002 to get involved with Asheville’s vibrant music scene. Since then, he has spent his time touring and recording with various Asheville-based groups, as well as providing music for countless beautiful weddings.

Barrett’s roots have begun to run deep in the area, and he and his wife are now very proud to be raising their two adorable daughters in this wonderful community. A lifelong proponent of the healing arts, Barrett is also currently pursuing a Master’s Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling.

Barrett considers it a great honor to play a part in what is one of the most meaningful days of your life. He truly appreciates and respects the gravity of the occasion, and yet insists on approaching your special day with a flexibility and positive nature that makes everything as smooth and easy as possible. His own wedding was the best day of his life, and he treasures the opportunity to help make your wedding as special, loving, and as beautiful as it can possibly be!
