Bill was really great! We wanted to blend a more laid back, outdoor ceremony with a traditional catholic ceremony and he helped us achieve exactly what we were looking for. He was very responsive to all of our questions, usually emailing back within minutes. He helped us craft a script of our ceremony that was perfect for us and exactly what we wanted. He was very attentive to both our requests and our parents requests (they wanted a traditional catholic service in the church and we did not). I wasn’t sure if the blending of the two requests could be done, but Bill made the process look easy! The end result was that both us and our families were very pleased with the ceremony!
While writing our ceremony script, Bill took time to get to know us and then add personal touches to the ceremony, which was appreciated. He also went back and forth a few times with the script until we were happy with the entire script. Bill was attentive and good at gently reminding me that I missed deadlines (planning does get stressful – it happens to the best of us). Overall, both us and our parents are very grateful for Bill’s hard work and providing a beautiful ceremony.
As a side note, I was concerned with cost for the wedding and we looked at less expensive officiant options (ie. $50 civil servant). But you get what you pay for and I am so happy that we decided to go with Bill. He is heartfelt, warm, and a positive light in your ceremony. You won’t be disappointed.
