  • Bill was absolutely fantastic to work with! He was very helpful and offered wonderful suggestions. We met with Bill one time before our ceremony and were immediately comfortable around him. He is very easy to talk to, kind, and has a great sense of humor. He kept our rehearsal and ceremony light-hearted, just like we wanted. I highly recommend Bill to anyone who needs an outstanding wedding officiant!

  • Bill is amazing! He officiated our wedding and after meeting with us only one time, he created a ceremony that totally fit our personalities. We got many, many compliments from guests about how they loved the sentiments expressed in our ceremony and how personalized it was, and we completely agree. Bill was friendly, professional, responsive, and a pleasure to work with. He listened to what we were looking for and made the whole process easy. I would highly recommend him to any couple!!!

  • Bill was AMAZING! We knew within 2 minutes of meeting him that he was the right person to marry us. He is such a wonderful person, and is extremely personable. He wanted to make our day everything we dreamed of. He gave us different options for our ceremony but really listened to what we wanted. He attended our rehearsal and walked us through the ceremony to make sure everyone knew their job. Our ceremony was beautiful and just what we wanted. I would HIGHLY recommend Bill!

  • My husband and I were very pleased to work with Bill. He is very professional and obviously experienced as an officiant. He met us in consultation initially, and immediately I knew I was in good hands. He has a fatherly type of demeanor, and also a quirky sense of humor that's pretty awesome. He made me laugh a lot during the wedding rehearsal and really reminded me laughter and being able to poke fun at each other is a big part of a good marriage. During our consultation with him, he had various ideas he presented to make our ceremony more meaningful; when he mentioned the mother's rose ceremony, I knew we had to do it, even though I'd never heard of it before. It ended up one of the most moving parts of our ceremony. Bill has done hundreds of weddings; but you can tell he's sincere and it's not just going through the same motions for him. He understands the sanctity of what he does, but his talent at seeing the humorous aspects of the process should not be underestimated.

  • My now husband and I used Bill as our officiant and we could not be more happy about our choice! We were looking for someone who was very experienced, would let us customize our ceremony, and who was affordable. Bill’s prices were the BEST, and we booked him ASAP. Several months before our big day, he put together some ideas he had and emailed us the entire ceremony – word for word. We LOVED it. We didn’t change a thing, even though we would add or subtract whatever we wanted. Bill was hilarious and a delight to work with. Extremely punctual, and always got back to me right away whenever I reached out. 10 out of 10 for Bill. He was the best! Angie & Jimi

  • My husband and I are not religious and when it came to choosing an officiant for our wedding, we had no idea who to pick. We found Bill here on weddingwire and from the first meeting, we instantly felt like we were making the right choice. He is laid back, has a great sense of humor, and you can tell he loves what he does and has been doing it for a long time. He made us feel comfortable during the rehearsal and on the wedding day he helped to break the tension and settle our nerves. All of our guests kept saying how beautiful the ceremony was. There was not a dry eye in the room! Bill wrote the script for our secular ceremony with a few suggestions from us and it was absolutely perfect. Thank you so much, Bill, for making our special day truly special! We loved working with you!

  • Bill was such a great choice for our christian wedding ceremony. He gave us great advice and a lot of flexibility in how we wanted our ceremony arranged. We were very pleased with how beautifully written the ceremony was and how well Bill performed the actual ceremony. He knows how to command a crowd well. Our rehearsal was efficient and I felt very comfortable and prepared for the day of. I would absolutely recommend Bill!!!

  • Bill provided everything we wanted in a ceremony and more! My husband and I are both spiritual-not-religious types. He was raised Catholic and I went to a Unitarian church. We wanted some religious elements in the ceremony, but for the focus to be more on love and unity. Bill composed a personalized ceremony for us that was beautiful and moving. I teared up just reading it! He incorporated a sand ceremony like we asked and provided us with beautiful, modern vows. He added just the right amount of humor and lighthearted Bill was friendly and personable when we met him. He always available via e-mail to answer my questions. We got married at the National Aquarium in Baltimore, and Bill managed to run the rehearsal on a busy Friday afternoon with tourists still streaming through the area. Many of our guests commented on how moving the ceremony was, and how impressed they were with Reverend Bill's charm and charisma. I cannot recommend him enough!

  • Bill was very pleasant to work with. He worked with us to tailor a wedding ceremony to make it special for us. He provided ideas of what we could include but was never pushy or judgmental. During the ceremony he make us very at ease. Guests at our wedding commented on what a touching ceremony it was.

  • We absolutely loved our wedding ceremony that Bill performed. We weren't really 100% sure what we wanted, but we gave him only a few descriptions of things we liked and he was able to put together an amazing ceremony. The rehearsal went super smooth, and our wedding could not have been more perfect. So many of our friends and family said they cried, it was so sweet!

  • Bill provided a combination of incredible professionalism along with a lot of knowledge to both provide officiant services along with giving a lot of good tips to make our day run more smoothly. Bill also has a great sense of humor to help keep things upbeat during meetings which really helped with any little stresses that may come along with the whole wedding experience. We would absolutely recommend anyone who wants a stress free ceremony to give Bill a call.

  • Mr. Duffy was the kindest most generous and thoughtful man we ever could have wished for. He responsed to emails as quickly as possible, calmed us down throughout rehearsal as well as the actual wedding. I would reccommend him to anyone looking for an officiant. We now consider him a friend.

  • Loved loved Bill from the moment we had our consultation with him. Very funny, sweet guy. He put together a fabulous secular ceremony (and sand ceremony) for us that was truly heartfelt. When we had torrential rain at our outdoor venue and a partially flooded ceremony tent as our "rain option" location his calmness, professionalism and light-hearted humor certainly calmed my nerves while helping our guests make light of the unfortunate weather. All of our guests were impressed with how the ceremony came together so beautifully despite the bit of chaos before hand. I credit Bill for keeping such a perfectly level head throughout (and we hadn't had a rehearsal either!). Thanks Bill for everything!

  • Bill Duffy was my wedding officiant on May 23, 2015. I knew immediately when I first met with him that he was the right choice for my wedding. He was very easy to talk to, professional, and funny, and made the process of planning our ceremony very enjoyable. His prices were a little higher than some other officiants I had looked into, but I feel we made the best choice and were given a beautiful wedding ceremony that perfectly reflected us as a couple. I would definitely recommend Bill.

  • Bill was amazing to work with and put together an amazing Ceremony for my husband and I. Although we weren't getting married in a church, we still wanted a rather traditional Ceremony with religious references included. Bill was able to do that, but also give the Ceremony a modern feel and allowed us to make some choices along the way as well. The Mother's Rose ceremony went over really well, and it was a great tribute to the two women who had done so much for us! Bill was flexible and easy to work with and very friendly. He did a great job with the Rehearsal (which was no additional fee) and did an even better the day of the wedding :) Lastly, Bill sent us a card in the mail after our wedding as a congratulations, and had made a donation in our name to SPCA. I thought that was really sweet and personal and a great touch on his part!
