Bil was fantastic for my wedding! He did such an amazing job and he let us customize our wedding to fit our unique vision for our special day! I'd recommend him to anyone looking for an officiant!Nov 4, 2019Verified
Bil is a great guy and I can’t wait for him to officiate my wedding.Mar 17, 2019Verified
We can’t thank Mr. Malbon for him working with us on our wedding experience. He gave us great advice before our nuptials, worked with our shortish time frame when we had to find an officiant two weeks before the wedding, and he also was flexible with the style of our ceremony we wanted. He gave great advice, made us laugh, and made us feel at ease during a stressful but extremely joyful process. Thank you Bil for being a part of our day!!Apr 22, 2018Verified
We decided to take the "leap" on February 29, 2016. The tiny chapel was a beautiful location for our intimate ceremony. The officiant, Bil Malbon, had such a meaningful service prepared. We never wanted a huge wedding and a big fuss. We were provided a lovely, affordable, memorable,and professional service. Very grateful to Tiny Chapel. It was exactly what we were looking for on our special day!Apr 4, 2016Verified
Bill of Tiny Chapel Weddings provided top notch service from beginning to end! Very professional and personable and Bill was super communicative leading up to the ceremony to make sure that our officiant needs would be met the day of. He was on-time to our pop-up ceremony site and even stayed longer than planned to accommodate us running behind schedule. Will definitely recommend others for their special day!Oct 26, 2015Verified
