  1. #1 Weddings By Bill Gillespie

    (21 reviews)

    Rose M.

    We wanted a wedding officiant for a short, non-religious ceremony that involved exchanging goats instead of wedding rings. Bill was stoked about the job. He had a great sense of humor about all of it, and he's very open minded. We had to hire him. And hiring him was a great decision on our part. He brilliantly balanced providing a lot of organization and structure with giving us control over the final product. I got written sample scripts, guidelines, and marriage license info the day that I hired him. He asked me a ton of questions about our beliefs and preferences for the ceremony. He responded to all my emails within a couple of hours. We never had to reach out to him; he followed up with us periodically throughout the entire wedding planning process. He does loads of weddings throughout the year, but he made us feel like we were his only clients. Bill is also a professor at Armstrong, and he brings that skill set to officiating weddings. He has a clear speaking voice and knows how to talk to an audience. My dad is very hard of hearing, and it meant so much to me that he was actually able to hear the ceremony. His speech was lovely, without being schmaltzy. He was professional, punctual, and well-dressed. He obviously loves what he does, and working with him was above and beyond what we expected. I could not recommend him more highly.

"Keep It Simple" Weddings

(3 reviews)

The decision to start a marriage service business came to Perry Russell after attending a wedding officiated by a friend. Sharing that special moment with a couple giving vows to each other inspired Perry and the rest was history. Despite the hurdles at the start like licenses, advertising and others, Perry was motivated.

My clients normally are thirty years old or younger some older. My clients normally do not want a church wedding.My clients are looking for an inexpensive way of saying 'I do', and my marriages service "Keep It Simple" provides that.

Although just starting in 2013, Perry has 23 weddings in his track record. Being married for 40 years, he knows what to share to young couples about married life. Among his projects, his favorite was his first wedding. It was a beach wedding and it was special for both Perry and the client.

I firmly believe in keeping the customer satisfied. I offer inexpensive, non-denominational or Christian Wedding Services, also [with their] choice of location free complimentary photos of their Wedding. I try make it all about them.

Keep your weddings simple yet still memorable by booking with Perry Russell.

    Howard Pendley, Ph.D.

    (93 reviews)

    Dr. Howard was a joy to have as our wedding officiant. He took time out of his busy schedule to meet us weeks prior to our ceremony, which demonstrated his commitment to the service and significance of the occasion. Dr. Howard is as sincere, kind, and friendly as he is educated, experienced, and knowledgeable. Standing before him at our wedding ceremony it felt almost as though he had been our minister for a long time. In short, I couldn't imagine having any other clergyman make our wedding vows as memorable.

    Savannah Custom Weddings & Elopements

    (9 reviews)

    Tracy was a great wedding officiant. She was easy to contact and talk about ideas before we hired her, which made the decision making process very easy. Once we decided to use Savannah Custom Weddings & Elopements, she was available to meet in person so we could talk about our wedding ceremony together. Tracy gave us lots of ideas that helped us figure out the direction of our ceremony. She quickly adapted parts of the ceremony to make it more personal and special while still keeping our values and the type of ceremony that we wanted. I also really love the type of research and creativity that she puts into her ceremonies. She really thinks about the couple that she is going to marry, their values, their personalities and makes it unique and meaningful. She surprised us by finding a poem to include at the end of our ceremony that was very unique to our relationship. This shows me that she really puts a lot of thought and research into all her ceremonies and makes sure they are personalized. Tracy was the perfect officiant for us. The day of the ceremony she was incredibly organized, made me feel at ease, brought up important things to do or say that I probably wouldn't have thought about, and made sure everything went smoothly. I highly recommend Savannah Custom Weddings & Elopements!! I also recommend using her Vow Writing Guide. We wrote our own vows and her guide helped me to easily write meaningful vows.

    Hiring and working with Michael to officiate and bless our destination wedding was one of the best decisions we made. He was generous with his time, sincere with his message and exactly what we were looking for. Despite not knowing each other well, his words and wedding blessing during the ceremony were heartfelt, unique and touching. It was the perfect way to start our new lives together. - April & Ed Callahan

    My Weddings Your Way

    (5 reviews)

    My name is Melanie and I own "My Weddings Your Way". After hearing from several brides that they were frustrated with officiants who dictated how a wedding must be and my saying to them, "But it's your day..." I decided that this is how my business would work. Yes, it's my business but it's your day and I want to help you make your dreams of your princess wedding come true. So "My Weddings Your Way" soon came about! Religious or civil, I will give you the choice the type of ceremony. Normally, I send my brides and grooms several different ceremonies and we turn it into the exactly what they want. There's nothing we can't find, figure out or add to your ceremony. I'll help write your own vows, include a unity candle or help include your children in the ceremony. Offbeat wedding? That's great. It's your day how you want it!

    Southern Weddings of Distinction

    Dr. Rev. Dan Hogan came alongside us as a pastor, friend, and guide as we prepared for our wedding. He helped us craft a ceremony that uniquely reflected our faith, values, and hopes for the future. He kept an eye on the details and was flexible and quick to adapt. From things like turning down the microphone when the wind was blowing too hard to wearing the yellow tie I selected for him, he rolled with the punches. We are so thankful for Rev. Dr. Dan Hogan and all the ways he made our wedding day special. Allison and Zach Smith

    Howard Pendley arrived in plenty of time before our wedding service . He was quick to respond to questions regarding our ceremony by both email and phone. He put together a service that met our needs perfectly, that still focused on our union in the presence of God. His pricing was what most attracted us in this selection process. Our wedding took place on December 7, 2014 at Ten Downing at Churchill's.

  2. #2 Weddings By Bill Gillespie

    (21 reviews)

    Mariah A.

    Bill was wonderful! I had a difficult time finding an officiant that would provide the type of services that we needed - officiant services that were not extremely religious but still mentioned some of our religious views. Bill did it all for us and for a really great price (he offers a military discount for active duty members)! He was extremely prompt in getting back to us and answering all of our questions. He sent us several layouts for the ceremony script and we picked and chose parts from each of them. Bill allowed/helped us to create our ideal ceremony and it couldn't have gone smoother! We rehearsed the day prior to the wedding and he made us feel so relaxed and helped everyone get into their correct places so that we could do several run-throughs of how the ceremony would actually flow. I would 100% recommend Bill Gillespie to anyone and everyone looking for an officiant. He is so respectful and truly just wants you to have a wonderful and seamless wedding. I was in no way paid or pressured into writing this review! He really is just that great! Discretion: I have also personally reviewed Bill on another website, therefore the review is word for word the same. If you see the other one, just know it was also me!
