  • Bill was such a delight to work with when planning our big day. He is extremely organized, which I appreciate. He kept us on schedule and provided many examples of readings, structure, etc. We felt like we were able to make the ceremony our own. It was also a great compromise as my husband has a big catholic family and I do not. While we didn't get married in a church like his family preferred, Rev Bill was still able to please all family members by including scriptures and prayers, Reasonably priced and highly recommend!

  • Bill was so incredibly supportive and helpful throughout the entire process. We planned the wedding from across the country, and Bill was understanding and awesome with his gentle reminders. He kept us on track! The ceremony itself was incredibly beautiful - we both received many compliments afterwards. Bill worked with us both as we tried to make a ceremony that reflected us as both an interfaith (Catholic and Methodist) and same-sex couple. There are lots of things I would have done differently for my wedding, but choosing Bill was definitely not one of them.

    Kate and Kendra – Thanks for your review. It was truly my honor to be invited to officiate at your wedding. Your friends and family were just wonderful and so supportive. Getting married by the pond at Kate’s family home was awesome. In a special way, thank you for the living reminder that all love is equal and precious beyond measure. Congratulations!

  • My husband and I cannot recommend Rev. Bill highly enough. He took the time to get to know us, our love story, and our point of view. He articulated everything so beautifully. The wedding itself was the happiest day of my life, and the ceremony, in particular, was a bright point. Rev. Bill, thank you for your time, energy, and thoughtfulness. Every word you spoke was heartfelt, genuine, and filled with love. We really cannot recommend Rev. Bill highly enough!

  • Rev. Bill was the perfect choice for our wedding. We had a small ceremony and wanted to keep traditional elements without doing a catholic ceremony. Bill tried to get to know us which was so appreciated and really listened to what we wanted. He delivered a beautiful sermon too which was personalized to us. It was amazing having Bill as part of our day!

    Meredith and Kevin -- Right back at you! It was my honor and a lot of fun to get to know you. Together, we developed the one-of-a-kind wedding that you wanted. It was engaging, intimate, and beautiful. I wish you both every joy and happiness. Thank you for sharing this part of your journey with me. - Rev. Bill

  • Working with Reverend Bill Freeman was absolutely wonderful. He was responsive and encouraging throughout the process and he composed such a special ceremony for our wedding! We received so many compliments on the ceremony and how intimate it felt to those who knew us well. We would highly recommend Bill to any of our friends, and those looking for a bit more personalization than most ceremonies. We cannot say enough kind things about him as a vendor. Thank you for sharing our special day with us, Bill! - Nick & Anna

  • Bill was the officiant at our wedding earlier this month. It was a second wedding for us both, and the vows do mean that much more when you’re older. Bill designed a ceremony that captured those feelings of love and recognition, friendship and empathy. The tone was perfect. He did an amazing job with the prayers, the vows and the readings, as well as with his own reflections. We couldn’t be happier. Thank you!

    Joanne and Dale - Thank you for the feedback and review. Together, we designed a wedding ceremony that reflected your soulmate love! It was my honor to officiate at your wedding. I wish you both every joy and happiness. -- Rev. Bill

  • Bill is one of the most open-hearted and considerate people I have ever met. He went above and beyond to collaborate with us and create a ceremony experience that was an authentic reflection of our faith life and personalities. Throughout our time working together, Bill communicated frequently and was so proactive that the ceremony planning process was not only relaxed, but enjoyable. Thank you for everything, Bill! Thanks to you, I will never forget my wedding day.

    Taylor and Laura - I am humbled by your review. It was my honor to work together with through the iterative and creative process of developing your personalized wedding ceremony. As I said in my reflections, you two are clearly divine soulmates. We can only believe in a loving God BECAUSE we see love in the world. Thank you both for your shining example of the extravagant love God has for us. I wish you both every joy and happiness. -- Rev. Bill

  • We hired Bill to officiate our wedding that was supposed to happen in September, but we ended up having to push everything up a month. Bill worked with us to find a new day that worked for everyone and helped us accelerate the schedule for putting together the ceremony. This is extra impressive since the ceremony is completely custom tailored. The whole process was painless and Bill helped keep us on track throughout. We ended up with Bill because we felt that he truly understood what we wanted from day one. He managed to tie religious themes seamlessly with secular ones leaving everyone in our families happy (from Grandpa and Grandma to our friends). Bill really takes the time to understand what you want and what everyone's expectations are creating a beautiful ceremony that made us laugh and cry throughout.

    Nia and Joe - Thank you for your kind review. I so enjoyed working with you over the past few months and creating a wedding ceremony that spoke to who you are and what you mean to each other while honoring your elders. I enjoyed our dinner together, sharing our stories and our hopes for the future. I was so pleased that when you learned the Woodward Table (the place of your first date) was unexpectedly closing, I was able to quickly accommodate an August wedding celebration. I wish you both every joy and happiness. -- Rev. Bill
