  • We absolutely loved having Bill as our officiant. He was professional and funny. He made sure that the ceremony was both personal while still romantic. He was flexible with our needs and allowed us to meet with him or email with him several times leading up to the wedding. I am so grateful that he was able to officiate our marriage!

  • Everyone has been raving about our ceremony thanks to Bill! Our guests have told us that they loved how personal the ceremony was and that it wasn't too long or at all boring. When we first met with him we knew he was perfect for our wedding. He made a stressful process so fun and easy. He listened to what we wanted and asked lots of questions to get to know us better. He sent us a script with different options to choose from, and it was fun picking everything out together. Bill created a ceremony for us that was a perfect blend of prayer, traditional, and modern touches (we did a mothers rose ceremony). The ceremony had a few breaks of laughter to lighten things up. He was so calming and easygoing throughout the whole process. It was exactly what we wanted!

    Thank you so much Courtney and Chris! It was such a pleasure!

  • I am so thrilled that Bill had a cancellation for our wedding day right before we called to meet him. He was wonderful. He is so friendly and funny, and he made the wedding and rehearsal a breeze. He can customize the ceremony to be as religious or secular as you want, and he was great with helping my dad remember his one line! :-) If you can book Bill, I highly recommend you do. You will not regret it! He is great!

  • Groom reviewing here. Bill is a graduate of my high school rival Calvert Hall (which didn't effect my respect for him lol) and grew up around the area so it was cool to talk to him about his upbringing versus mine. Anyway it's that personal touch from him that made our ceremony so much fun. I said something funny during our vows by accident because I was trying to remember the lines verbatim and he made a joke about "this isn't jeopardy. you don't answer in the form of a question" and everyone including myself started laughing. It made the ceremony more enjoyable and less formal which we wanted. I even like his blessing at the end, which if you choose to do, he'll explain why it means so much to him.

  • Bill was a joy to work with. Bill was accommodating in short notice to meet with us when we were available and make our ceremony perfect and personal. He offered great ceremony suggestions and was willing to work along with any suggestions we had. We got many compliments on the beautiful ceremony and he made it fun and enjoyable from start to finish. Bill was the perfect fit for us and will be for you too.

  • We are so happy that we selected Rev. Bill as the officiant for our recent wedding at the Chesapeake Bay Beach Club! Throughout the planning process Bill was helpful and flexible. He put together a beautiful ceremony for our wedding which was a great mix of traditional with some more modern element as we envisioned. We got many compliments on the ceremony, and we were very appreciative of all of Bill's recommendations as well as his professional, kind and funny personality. He goes above and beyond for his clients -- from meeting with us in person for our first consultation to attending the rehearsal at no additional cost , and finally providing you with a nice final printed version of your ceremony as a keepsake. We highly recommend Bill!

  • We loved working with Bill! Bill was responsive throughout the entire wedding planning process and gave us great guidance re what to include in our ceremony (the mother's rose ceremony was a huge hit). The ceremony itself was beautiful and was my favorite part of the entire wedding. Our guests loved it too - so many guests told us how meaningful the ceremony was and some even asked if we wrote our own vows (we didn't - we used Bill's). We are so happy we decided to work with Bill and highly recommend him.

  • Bill was the best officiant. My husband and I aren't religious and he didn't make me feel like I had to do anything I didn't want to. He has a sarcastic humor which matches mine. He made things light and funny which really helped keep my husband and I at ease. He came up with a beautiful idea of a wine boxing for our ceremony. He took into account what you wanted and threw some ideas out there to help make the decision process easier. He helped create a beautiful wedding. I picked him because of all the wonderful reviews people had written about him and his amazing price. You just can't beat someone who provides excellent service and doesn't charge you outrageous pricing.

  • Bill customized the ceremony to fit us perfectly. I got compliments from everyone..from my friends to my Grandmother who is 90. Everyone thought it was great and I had a friend tell me that when she get's married she is going to book him too.

  • My husband and I found Bill here on WeddingWire and after our first meeting, we knew we found the right guy. He made sure to listen to what we wanted to get out of the ceremony, and did just that. He is very personable and made us feel comfortable, even though my husband and I don't like attention and standing in front of a hundred people was slightly nerve-wracking. We appreciated his sense of humor, especially when a pirate ship full of tourists traveling through the Inner Harbor got close to the ceremony. All of our guests made comments on how beautiful and eloquent the ceremony was. Thanks, Bill, for sharing that moment with us and making our wedding unique and special. You were truly great to work with!

  • We're so glad that we chose Bill to officiate our wedding. He was professional, accommodating, and listened to what we were looking for in our ceremony. We met several times before the big day which helped us feel comfortable with Bill before our wedding. Definitely recommend Bill!

  • Was available on my date but refused to be the officiant because there wasn't parking directly at the venue. I made sure to share that we would cover the parking fee as well as give him transportation. Seemed inflexible and most importantly, unprofessional..."I think I'll pass"...was how he responded to my email. I can't speak on his actual service but I do feel professionalism and how you treat people prior to doing business is just as important so I felt inclined to leave this review.

  • I had so many guests compliment me on our officiant choice. Bill was so nice and spoke beautifully during the ceremony. The only reason I gave 4.5 stars for quality of service because there was one very specific phrase I wanted him to say at the end of the ceremony, but he said it differently. Obviously none of our guests would have noticed, and in the moment it didn't really matter, but it was still something we initially talked about. And looking back, I should have probably reminded him the day of. But, if you are looking for an accommodating, efficient, easy-going, funny officiant, then look no further - Bill is the guy! Guests will love him, as did ours :)
