    William Fenton came to our house on a very short notice and performed the ceremony we asked for. He was on time and professional, I would definitely recommend him. Thank you so much for your services.

    Bill is the most wonderful human being. He is caring and compassionate and really cares about getting to know the people he is sealing together for life. He went out of his way to help us with our ceremony and could not recommend him any higher. He is a true gem and will make your day, big or small, so very special!

    Mr. Fenton performed my daughter's ceremony at Greenfield Village on 6/22/14. He came to the rehearsal - which was very unorganized even though we had a wedding planner, smiled, kept his cool and made jokes to lighten the mood. He was professional, looked professional, was on time, and performed a non-denominational ceremony, which is just what my daughter wanted. He was very friendly and easy going, REMARKABLE, considering he was seriously injured just a few weeks prior in his other line of work and still had injuries (although you couldn't tell). I would definitely recommend William Fenton, he will do an awesome job and was a pleasure to work with. His prices were very reasonable too!

    We hired Mr. Fenton mainly because all of the great comments and reviews here and i can only confirm that its all true. He did a great job just as advertised.

    Don't let the affordability or friendliness fool you! I Dos Your Way is excellent, and we couldn't imagine having a better officiant than Bill Fenton. But watch out! You may have more fun than you are expecting.

    I have nothing but great things to say about Bill's contribution to our short but, at times, complicated ceremony. He helped us out on really short notice. He is absolutely flexible to all we wanted to do and added so much to the overall success of the event. Bill is a true professional at what he does. Would recommend him to all my friends.

    We had a wonderful ceremony thanks to "I DO's Your Way" and were very happy with the level of service and value we received. Our only star reduction has to do with delivery of ceremony lines, aside from having to adjust the ceremony speech ourselves, the speech delivery could have been a little better (nerves and stumbled a bit). But otherwise we were very pleased with the service overall.

    We wanted to elope and find someone to meet us at a destination unusual for others...Using the internet we found William Fenton. We contacted him,described what and where and he said, "I'll be there for you".Well the day arrived, he showed up on time as promised, we went over what we would like, we felt very comfortable with William, he proceeded to marry us in a very professional way in a nice clear speaking voice.Afterwards he stayed and congratulated us and chatted a while. Everyone was happy and he did as promise when promised and we wish to thank him very much....THANK YOU :)

    Bill officiated my wedding recently and we were definitely pleased with his services! It was his first same-sex ceremony but he did great! Although all 3 of us were nervous the day of, everything went off without a hitch! Bill's a great person and everyone at our wedding loved him. He even went out of his way to make us an official "certificate" seeing that we couldn't get a legal marriage license. I definitely would recommend Bill to anyone getting married!

    Bill was an amazing officiant, right from the very start. I had an idea of things I wanted to include in our ceremony, but didn't know how to order it to make it flow. I sent him everything and he turned it into a great ceremony. Any time I wanted to change something, I shot him an email and it was taken care of. Bill came to rehearsal and then joined us afterwards for dinner. He ended up having so much in common with my family and everyone LOVED him. They thought I had known him before because we just hit it off so well. My mom and grandparents actually just asked me if I've taken to him lately. Our ceremony was unique and absolutely amazing. That was one of the most common compliments I got about our wedding. Bill is an absolutely wonderful officiant - you would be crazy to go with anyone else! I highly recommend him for your ceremony!!!

    Bill was absolutely perfect! He let the ceremony be completely about us and let us make all of the decisions. Everyone was very relaxed around him because he made everything so easy and reminded us to just breathe when we needed to. The ceremony would not have been nearly as perfect without Bill, and we were so happy that we chose him for our special day!
  • Kathleen D. Jul 8, 2013
    Bill was Awesome! he was very accommodating especially under our circumstances. He is very friendly and very resourceful. He really thinks outside the box and tries extra hard to make this day very special and unstressful. Would recommend him hands down. Very professional and yet very personable.
  • Debbie J. Jul 8, 2013
    Bill was amazing from day one!!!! He helped us find vows that truly expressed the messages of love we were looking for. He was always available to chat and speedy to answer questions or emails. Walking down the aisle as a nervous bride made it so much better...seeing my grooms face but also Bill’s great big smile!!! He added a special and loving touch to our wedding and can't thank him enough!!!! So happy we had a chance to work with him, true pleasure!!!!

    I dont know if words can express just how pleased I was with Mr Fenton service that he provided, he was God sent. When I arrived at the hall it was not together because the hall was doubled book but Bill came to the rescue and quickly got someone in charge to pull it togather in a timely manner, he even stayed and pose for a few pictures and party with us for a bit before slipping out.......I would definitely recommend him to anyone.

    Not only was Bill the first to respond to our post, needing a minister; he stayed in contact and was always willing to help!!! He offered to get a hold of the clerks office so we knew what to do in order of getting our marriage license, being out of state we needed all the help possible!! He also did a fanomianal job at personalizing our ceremony!!! My, now husband had lost both his mom and grandpa the fall before our marriage, he included this in the most appropriate manner!!!! He also helped me surprise my husband with a big thank you for serving our country, he is in the military!!! Thank you again Bill for doing what you do, you rock!!!!!!!!
