He was the best!! We were so glad he was able to marry us after many saying no to a same sex marrige, we were really disappointed, because we were short of time and we had many rejections, but we are glad we found Billy! Hands down the best officiant. We even got him to marry some other friends, so thank you!!

When our plans for a courthouse wedding in Washington DC were disrupted by the government shutdown just 2 days before the ceremony, we were left in a panic. Billy Shulman of Capital Unions helped us pull off a miracle! As an officiant, Billy spoke calmly and eloquently; even accommodated for my wife, who speaks English as a second language, with extra articulation during the vows. Booking was no challenge at all. Billy was very responsive by email and phone. The price was very reasonable and well worth the value of services received. We paid via PayPal - super easy! We definitely recommend Billy (Capital Unions) for anyone planning a wedding ceremony in DC or MD!

We had to put together a small wedding last minute while certain family members were going to be in town and able to attend. We contacted Mr. Shulman and were immediately impressed by his professionalism and his flexibility. He was incredibly helpful and put us at ease at a time that otherwise could have been very stressful. He ensured the ceremony was done exactly how we wanted down to the very last detail. He was also extremely pleasant and kind and a delight to have at our ceremony. I highly recommend him!

Billy is the best, he put up with several ceremony changes and always emailed back quickly. He showed up on time and was very professional the whole time. Would definitely recommend him again.

Perfection at every step with only a week notice. I contacted Billy on a Thursday asking if it was possible to get married the following Saturday. He replied immediately that he had another wedding in morning but would be able to fit us in. Since it would be impossible for us to come down beforehand to apply for marriage license, he informed us that he could fulfill that role for us by proxy. With this info in hand, we decided to make plans to fly down and have our impromptu wedding. Billy emailed me marriage application, I FedEx back and on Wednesday Billy had our marriage certificate in hand. The next day I received a copy of his draft for our ceremony, we changed nothing because it was perfect and on top of that bilingual Spanish as well, since my wife speaks better Espanol. On Friday Billy contacted us to make sure we were all set and to confirm our Saturday time and place. In addition, since we had no place in mind to have ceremony, his suggestion of the Washington War Memorial was perfect. Saturday, despite a thunderstorm Billy arrived 1/2 hour early and presided over what could have not been better marriage ceremony. On Monday, he informed me that he was sending certified copies to us. I cannot recommend him enough for his attentions to detail, the ease of getting everything in order, and most importantly, a genuine pleasure in marrying Nohemi and I.

Billy was amazing from start to finish!!! We chatted with him about the tone of the ceremony ahead of time, and felt so relieved by his professionalism, kindness, sense of humor, and ability to listen to what we wanted. He struck the perfect balance for us, who are not religious, but wanted a meaningful service, to honor our love. His calm demeanor really helped us on the day of, when our nerves were high, but he was calm, cool and collected. Looking dapper in his suit, our parents were also very impressed, and kept commenting on how beautiful and heartfelt the whole ceremony was. He spoke his words with the utmost sincerity, which was very moving. We especially loved the blessing of the hands. There were lots of happy tears! I would highly recommend him. It was perfect for our small, intimate, backyard ceremony. I cant say enough good things about him! His presence was a lovely addition to our union, and really set a special tone for a day that we will remember forever...Thank you Billy!!!
