Bill is absolutely amazing. We did premarital counseling with him, which was super fun and helpful. He was a dream come true for our wedding day. We received so many compliments about him after our wedding ceremony. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!    Sara ~ May 14th, 2016

We were so lucky to find Bill. He was fantastic and I am so glad he was there for our wedding! We did our premarital counseling with him as well and I am so happy with that decision. He was kind, hilarious, and understanding. We both thoroughly enjoyed our time with him. He put us completely at ease the whole time and even more so on our wedding day. I am so happy we met him and that he had such a big part in making our wedding day so special. He is a gem!  Emma ~ October 23rd, 2015

Bill was absolutely wonderful, from our first meeting to the very end of the wedding. We did pre-marriage counseling with him as well so we ended up meeting with him about once a month for at least 6 months prior to the wedding. This way he got to know us and we got to know so when the wedding day came it felt like we had friend marrying us. He seemed really invested in our marriage and preparing us for not only the ceremony but our marriage as well. Bill is a wonderful person, I am so happy we met him!  Erin ~ July 19th, 2014

Hiring Bill as our officiant was the best decision we made while wedding planning. He is such a kind-hearted, open-minded, wise and thoughtful man with a great sense of humor. He was very helpful when planning our ceremony and the readings, etc. he has to choose from are all beautiful and very meaningful. More importantly, though, he cared about our marriage. We did some counseling sessions with him leading up to the wedding and they definitely helped prepare us for our future together. In the grand scheme of things we only spent about 15 hours with Bill, but in the end, he felt like family, which made our ceremony that much more beautiful. Elisa ~ May 14th, 2010
