Absolutely OUTSTANDING! He did an excellent job in helping us coordinate along the way and was the point person at the wedding (on top of being the officiant). He added a lot to our wedding experience! His personality and take charge attitude made our wedding day flow perfectly. He made the day. Working with him along the way made our day stressless. We highly recommend him!!!

Details: Wedding • Non-denominational (mentions God) • 21 - 50 guests • Help writing vows will not be needed • English • Officiant will not be needed at the rehearsal • Officiant does not need to be present at rehearsal

I hopped on this website when I googled a local wedding officiant. Several people came up, and I read all of their profiles. I decided to select William, where I requested additional info. He got back to me right away, which I was shocked! We talked for a while and he really dove into the things that I wanted for my wedding. He is very detail oriented, and puts a lot more thought into the process than I even did. Shortly after I committed to his services, I paid him the upfront deposit. The next day I was talking to some family members and they had recommended me using a destination location where many people could stay that wanted to attend my wedding. Considering our situation, it was a better decision. I texted William right away to let him know of the change of plans. He was supportive, caring, and wished us a great time. When I had mentioned to him about getting a refund on my deposit he had no problems issuing the request. I would highly recommend anybody to work with him. Just talking to him over the phone you can sense his amount of joy, compassion, and love for what he does. I would definitely recommend him! Thank you, William!

I am so glad our plans changed last minute and we were able to work with Rev. Ward, who responded promptly and was most pleasant and professional to work with. All details - from setting to clothing to wear - were touched on. Rev. Ward had it all thought through and added that special touch to our wedding ceremony, making it unique and more than we could've expected. Communication was top notch and always very prompt. We're so so thankful to Rev. Ward and his lovely wife, whom we also had pleasure of meeting at our ceremony for going above and beyond to ensure our day was as special as possible. Highly recommend!!!

Details: Elopement • Christian • 20 guests or fewer • Help writing vows will not be needed • English • Officiant will not be needed at the rehearsal • Officiant does not need to be present at rehearsal

We couldn't have ask for better officiant to join our union, from our pre-marital counseling to our wedding day. Rev. Ward was perceptive of needs and respectful of our wishes. Mr. & Mrs. Taylor highly recommend Rev. Ward.

Thank you Mrs. Taylor, for allowing me to counsel the both of you with love ❤. And it was really a pleasure bringing your union together. I remember it just like it was yesterday. Rev. Ward Important Moments Officiant Services
