  • Not a fan. Takes days (sometimes WEEKS) to answer and correspondence has been difficult during the entire process. Would have to repeatedly ask if he received my messages. Although not required, he was not even willing to give a penny back after I paid in full when my wedding was canceled due to coronavirus. Makes you pay in full a month before your wedding. Not the right thing to do- especially after almost a $700 price tag. I would not recommend.

  • My fiancé and I had a hard time finding an officiant that we felt comfortable with. That is until we met Bill and his wife! They were so easy to talk to and made us feel like they really cared about us. Throughout the wedding planning process they were responsive and answered any questions we had! Bill came for our rehearsal which was great and simple! Then for the wedding, he was GREAT! He was exactly what we were looking for & our guests all complimented how beautiful our ceremony was and how awesome the officiant was! We would recommend Captain Bill again and again. Thank you so much!

  • We couldn't be happier with our Ceremony officiant!! Captain Davis was great, our family and guests could clearly understand him, kept it short and sweet, didn't ramble or get off track. We had a few sched. changes when setting up our consultation, he was more than willing to go the extra mile. Very easy to talk to and clear about any clarification we needed. Thank you so much, you will be a part of our special day forever!!!

  • We cannot say enough good things about our ceremony with Captain C. W. Davis (Captain Bill)! He helped us create a ceremony that was everything we wanted; meaningful and personal. Captain Bill and his wife, Sheryl, were wonderful to work with through the planning process. He was flexible with any suggestions we had and things we wanted to include. On the day of, he and his wife were a Godsend. We started our ceremony a bit early because we were concerned we might get some rain, and they helped make sure we were organized to walk down the aisle. He told us that he didn't need a microphone, and he was totally right. We just got our video back and saw just how well he was able to project his voice. Our ceremony was perfect. It was lighthearted at times and serious at all of the important times. My husband and I had written emotional vows and Captain Bill knew when to encourage us when we needed to take a breath because we were choked up. So many guests came up to us aft... Read more

  • We came across Bill and Sheryl's website after unsuccessful meetings with a few other officiants. Although our wedding date was getting close, Bill and Sheryl were still so accommodating and luckily were free on our date! They took the time to listen to our vision of the ceremony and our special requests. We are really glad to have had Nautical Star Ceremonies officiate our wedding. Our ceremony earned many compliments from friends and family, most importantly coming from my dad, who was very impressed with the officiant!

  • Captain Bill did an AMAZING job with our ceremony! As soon as we met him (and his wonderful wife Sheryl) we knew they were the right fit for us! It instantly felt as if we had known them for years! Captain Bill was so great the day of the wedding. He hung out with myself and some of the bridal party before the ceremony started and everyone loved him! Such a personable guy! He helped calm my nerves and walked us through everything! I would recommend him to anyone!

  • From our first meeting with Bill and his wife, Sheryl, we felt like we have known them for years. They are so personable, friendly, and welcomed us with open arms. We loved how he has different services to cater to your ceremony preferences. We decided to go with a semi-religious service because my family is not religious, however, my husband's family is. Everyone from both families were complimenting how well Capital Bill spoke and how beautiful the service was! They really do a great job from the communication, to the service, and even hanging around after the wedding to socialize. They did fit right in with our guests as if they were part of our family! I could not imagine my nautical themed wedding without Capital Bill and I HIGHLY recommend Nautical Star Weddings!

  • We had such a great time working with Bill on our wedding! Him and his wife Sheryl are some of the sweetest people I have met and they make you feel like you've known them forever. He sat down with us way in advance and went over everything. We got to choose exactly what kind of reading we wanted, as well as what types of extras, like the rose and sand ceremonies. We did both of those and they were great because they added a little something extra and special to our ceremony. Throughout the course of wedding planning I obviously came up with questions, and Bill was always quick to answer an email or phone call. We got married on a marina so having a the ceremony performed by a ship captain was also a lot of fun. I highly recommend Bill at Nautical Start Weddings, you won't regret your choice!

  • Bill and Sheryl are absolutely amazing. My then-fiancee and I had a last-minute scheduling with them and they were able to make things work for us. They were so friendly since the moment I contacted them, and were very open and flexible to any customization of the process. Bill suggested the exchange of roses ceremony, which both my then-fiancee and I as well as our guests thought was very unique and moving. We are so grateful to have Bill and Sheryl's service at our wedding, and we will recommend them to anybody.

  • Bill and Sheryl were amazing. Were we looking to have a non denominational wedding and since we were getting married at a yacht club, a boat captain fit perfectly with our theme. They felt like family from the first meeting we had with them. They made the process so simple and allowed us to have a relaxed ceremony that fit our personalities. My family could not stop saying how much they enjoyed the ceremony and how lovely Bill and Sheryl were. I would Recommend them to anyone.

  • Captain Bill was outstanding!!! The ceremony was more than we could have ever asked for. It was perfect. Captain Bill and his wife are very friendly and easy to work with. They are very professional. We loved everything that he did for our wedding. We had the memorial candle ceremony. The rose ceremony. The knot tying ceremony and the sand ceremony. Wonderful job! Thank you so much for helping to make our ceremony perfect!
