  • What an amazing person Reverend Bill is! There are not enough positive words in the world to write a review on Reverend Bill. We were so lucky to have him be our officiant for our recent wedding, we received so many compliments on the ceremony! Having the right officiant is so important for a wedding because the ceremony is what the whole day is about it’s not about the party or the food or the music it’s about the marriage and the exchanging of vows and we took that very seriously...Reverend Bill made that moment for us so beyond special that I will forever thank him and be grateful! Prior to the ceremony he sent my husband and I a list of questions for each of us to answer privately and sent questions to our family members and friends and compiled all the answers together to have an extremely personalized ceremony. We picked our own wedding vows and ring vows with his guidance of so many suggestions. His email correspondence was so prompt that any questions I had I would get a ... Read more

    Thank you for such kind words. I very much enjoyed working with the both of you. It was my honor and my pleasure to serve you. It was a special afternoon, there was an electricity in the air and I am beyond happy to have been a part of it.

  • My daughters wedding was postponed due to COVID in April. They decide to wed on three days notice this week. Bill had two days notice to perform the ceremony. On the night of the wedding he gave us a beautiful ceremony that I will remember for the rest of my life. It was just wonderful, and I thank him from the bottom of my heart. Thank you so much Bill. Very Happy and proud father of the bride. John Swezey

  • After changing wedding plans we contacted Reverend Bill and in no time he had us feeling like we’ve been working with him for months. He was both professional and personable in preparation and the ceremony was perfect! Our small group of guests loved the personal touches he made, some friends were even convinced he must’ve been part of the family. We loved having him a part of our memorable and special day. Would recommend Reverend Bill to anyone!

  • I contacted Reverend Bill a week before my Covid wedding and he responded almost immediately. He was absolutely amazing the entire time helping us prepare and select vows. He gave the perfect blend of casual and religious to please the entire crowd. My family was shocked that it felt as if he’d know us our entire lives. I couldn’t recommend Revered Bill more!!

    It was truly my honor to officiate your ceremony and I am thrilled that you are happy. My many thanks to Brett for his service to our country and to you for the sacrifices you make as a military spouse. Bill

  • Reverend Bill was one of the best vendors to work with. He made sure my ceremony was what I wanted even when I had to switch to a backyard wedding. I loved how personal the ceremony was because he included many details that my family and friends emailed him about my husband and I. He went above and beyond to make my day special. My family and friends were very impressed by the ceremony and still talk about it today!

    Thank you for taking the time and providing such a great review. It means so much to me. I am glad that I was able to provide a good memory in trying times.

  • 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!

    Thank you so much for this great review. After talking to you both I was determined to help you in any way I could. You are a special couple and being a part of your day was an absolute honor for me.

  • 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.

    Thank you. It was my absolute pleasure ...and will be again. soon I look forward to presiding over your bigger ceremony next year.

  • Bill's service brought my divorced family into unity with his beautiful and thoughtful service. Everyone was moved by his words and demeanor. He was originally our officiant for an April 2020 which was cancelled due to covid. With three days notice, he agreed to make us his fourth wedding on a Saturday and put together a thoughtful, heartfelt, and funny service for us. He somehow wrote a service that catered to my spiritual, ethereal outlook and my now husband's more logical, secular stance. He took so much responsibility off our shoulders and really encouraged us to enjoy the process instead. I highly highly recommend him to anyone looking for one less thing to stress about!

  • 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!!

    Thank you to you and to Jorge. It was an honor and a pleasure to be part of such a beautiful wedding and to help tell such a loving, moving story.

  • 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.

    Thank you so much for this amazing review. I am thrilled to know that I made you so happy and very glad that I could. Bill
