  • My husband and I were supposed to get married during covid 19 in a church, so when we decided to go ahead with a small ceremony, we were left without an officiant. We met with Rev Bill via zoom a few weeks before our ceremony, and we knew right away he would be great! We customized our ceremony, added in an irish hand fasting, had my grandmother do a reading, and even tied my husbands tie right before. He asked my family members for stories of us beforehand and incorporated them into the ceremony. It was funny, light hearted, and as religious as we wanted. He mailed our license in right away. We were so glad we got to have him involved in our day!

  • Reverand Bill was scheduled to officiate our wedding this May. Once it had to be postponed due to covid, we still wanted to do a small ceremony and get legally married. We asked Bill if he would still officiate it, and he was so right away happy to do it. He was extremely reasonable in price, accommodating, and genuinely sweet. He worked with us throughout the whole process and was so nice and professional. I would highly recommend him. He is still doing our wedding next year and I’m looking forward to it.

  • Rev. Bill was wonderful. From the first time we met with him we knew we wanted him to be a part of our special day. He was available whenever we needed him for questions/concerns. He was amazing the day of our wedding and really made our vows feel unique to us as a couple. I highly recommend Rev. Bill.

  • Reverend Bill performed our ceremony on October 4th, and it was truly a blessing. We chose him because he instantly made us feel comfortable and relaxed, and we wanted a personal ceremony. After our first meeting, we were confident Reverend Bill would make our ceremony special and unique, and he did! It was funny, serious, and personal. It spoke to us and who were are as a couple, and it was absolutely perfect. Throughout the whole planning process, Reverend Bill was responsive and professional. He visited us before the ceremony and helped calm our nerves. He was always so polite, knowledgeable, and has a way with words. We are so grateful to have had Reverend Bill with us on our special day and wouldn’t have had it any other way. Thank you for making our wedding even more memorable with such a beautiful ceremony and for being so humble. Your words of wisdom really made a lasting impression and we can’t thank you enough.

    My thanks to you both, I appreciate the kind words. It was a pleasure to be a part of your special day.

  • From the moment we met Reverend Bill we knew we wanted him to officiate our wedding. When we sat with him he made it his business to tell us that he doesn’t want us to feel pressured into choosing him and he highly encourages us to sit with other people. That shows what kind of person he is. Of course we didn’t think twice or meet with other people (: I never thought about getting compliments on my wedding officiant, a bride typically thinks about getting compliments on the flowers, the decor, her dress.... ALL night we got compliments on Bill. They loved the story he told of my husband and I and everything he added in between. We are so glad to have found him. Thank you so much Bill!!

  • Reverend Bill personalized our ceremony to such a great extent, it is something I’m never going to forget. My ceremony was so beautiful because of him. He also was so helpful prior to the day in that he gave us a wide selection of vows and readings to do. Everything was perfect.

  • I cannot rave enough about Reverend Bill!!! He was amazing! He reached out to both of us individually and our family members and was able to create a beautiful, touching and funny ceremony all about our story from all of the feedback he rec'd. My guests are still talking about how personal the ceremony was and how they felt like they were with us from the time we me until he said "I now pronounce you man and wife" . It was the most beautiful ceremony I could have ever imagined and am so grateful and honored that Rev. Bill married us. He made our day more special!!

  • If you want a personalized and special ceremony, you need to contact Reverend Bill. All of our guests came up to us to tell us our ceremony was not only beautiful but had them tear up. Reverend Bill gets to know you as a couple by asking your loved ones as well as the bride and groom questions that he incorporates into the ceremony. I couldn’t have asked for anything more. Marrying my husband was so special and a huge part of it is because of all the time and effort Reverend Bill put into making our ceremony perfect for us. I highly recommend using him as your officiant!

    Thank you Jenna and Brendan. I enjoyed working with you very much.

  • I found Bill on wedding worse because he had amazing reviews. We met a few times and was such a nice and sweet him and so very helpful. On the day of the weeding he was absolutely amazing and everyone’s loved what he wrote about us. Fast forward to two years later. I needed an officant for my father in laws wedding and he was getting married in three days! I wrote a. Email saying “I don’t know if you remember me but you officiated my wedding” when he replied to my email he actually remembered my wedding because and said “how could I forget you were the only bride that ever went on the floor and started coloring in a coloring book right before walking down the isle” anyway he really remembered me and my wedding and my daughter and that really ment a lot to me. We was also available on very short noticed and did my father in laws (because it was on a week day) So everyone look no further this guy is the real deal and the best!

  • My husband and I got married 2 days ago at the Garden City Hotel and we both knew that we had to post a review for Reverend Bill right away. We (and our family) cannot stop talking about our ceremony. It was absolutely beautiful and so perfect. There were quite a few things we wanted included in our ceremony and Reverend Bill seamlessly incorporated them into his perfectly written address. He also not only included our parents in the ceremony, but all of our guests as well. Lastly, and most special to us, my husband is a police officer and Reverend Bill even included a beautifully written tribute to the heroes among us. He went above and beyond to make our ceremony so incredibly special. If you're in search of a truly passionate and talented officiant, Reverend Bill is your guy.

  • Reverend Bill was one of our favorite vendors at our wedding. He was always so accommodating, flexible, kind, professional and thoughtful. He performed our wedding ceremony beyond even the highest expectations. As soon as the ceremony was over my husband and I could not get over how personalized our ceremony was. You will definitely not be getting a cookie cutter speech from him and our guests loved how much the ceremony reflected every bit of us. Do not pass up the chance to work with Bill. He's amazing!

  • Reverend Bill will be there for you, even through Hurricanes!! Reverend Bill was our officiant for our wedding. From the moment we spoke, up until the day of our wedding, Bill was there for us and was amazing. Reverend Bill really takes his time to work and get to know you. He is available to answer any questions, to help plan your perfect ceremony and to talk with friends and family to make your ceremony special for everyone. From the time I was a little girl all I ever said was that I wanted a beach wedding. I was determined to make it happen no matter what and Bill was right there to support us! Especially a week before the wedding when the weather men were predicting hurricane Matthew bringing intense wind and rain. It was at that moment that I knew I could call Bill to help calm myself down. He was wonderful, he really helped calm me down. Reverend Bill told me that he would preform the ceremony on the beach regardless, he informed me that he would prepare two ceremonies, the ori... Read more
