Reverend Bill made our wedding magic. He was so attentive to us. He was always eager and excited: he wanted to know us, he wanted to witness our love and hear all the details of our adoration. Together, we created a ceremony that was unique and maintained a sense of ritual, a ceremony about loving each other, about celebrating the love of our families. Our ceremony was beautiful, flawless, full of awe and wonder. He made our wedding unlike anything else. And it felt as though we were being married by a friend who cared for us. On our wedding day Reverend Bill was family. On top of all this love and care two incredible aspects of Reverend Bill shined above an already glimmering ceremony. First: Reverend Bill always thanked us for including him in our special day, for blessing him with our love. Our lives as husband and wife could not have begun more romantically and sincerely. Second: Reverend Bill crafted a completely personalized speech for the ceremony that celebrated our love for each other. He interviewed us, listened so carefully and laughed with us. It felt like we were just talking with a friend, telling him how we met, how we inspired one another, the small nuances of our relationship that make our love uniquely ours. It was a beautiful moment of reflection. Reverend Bill captured all that intimacy and wrote the most beautiful speech. He read it at the ceremony with such conviction and emotion: he knew us, he understood our stories and loved them. One response from our guests was constant: “Reverend Bill was remarkable.” No one had ever witnessed a ceremony with such care and intimacy. He truly blessed us with magic and love. He gave our wedding wonder and joy. It has taken me a long time to write this because I truly felt there was no way to put into words the way Reverend Bill has touched our lives. All I can say is thank you. Thank you for helping my husband and I begin our lives through celebrating the greatest truth: love.
