I couldn’t have asked for a better wedding official to handle my son’s wedding .He arrived on time, even though it was quite a distance with heavy traffic to contend with, and he performed a beautiful ceremony without the voluntary help of the bride & groom. Being extremely impressed & happy with his outstanding service, I would highly recommend him.Jun 17, 2018Verified
Bill officiated our wedding for us and he was great! We met up for coffee once to go over what we wanted included in our ceremony and what we wanted to avoid. He took everything into consideration and gave us a perfect ceremony. He also came out to a rehearsal the night before to get us all comfortable. Definitely recommend.Nov 27, 2017Verified
Bill was great. He was always available to answer questions. He did an excellent job officiating our wedding and was funny too!Aug 9, 2017Verified
I am so thankful that we found Bill to officiate our wedding! He was kind, easy to work with, and had excellent communication throughout the process. He met with us before our wedding to learn more about us and made suggestions to guide us through the ceremony planning process. He included our readings and made the ceremony very special. I would highly recommend going with Bill to officiate your wedding :)Mar 17, 2017Verified
My husband and I hired bill for our spring wedding at Orcutt ranch. He was so personable, attentive, and sincere. He was easy to talk about what we wanted with, and he helped us make sure it all happened. I could not have asked for a better wedding day officiant! Thank you Bill for all you helped us with.Mar 27, 2016Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My pricing will vary a bit. The range is $200-350. Rehearsal is the only possible optional add on at $75-100. Discounts may apply for shorter travel distances and other factors. Don’t be afraid to ask.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?After you’ve reached out to me, I arrange a phone consultation to determine if I’m a good match for you. When you are ready to book, I send you a simple contract, including first payment and balance instructions. Once contracted, we begin working together to create your ceremony template, then fine tune it. I help you with vows if you need help, and talk about any other parts of your celebration to which I might offer my years of experience. Then we celebrate your marriage.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have been involved with weddings in one way or another since 1973, as entertainment and then as officiant, including my own marriage of almost 40 years now.
