Reverend Bill was fantastic to work with at every stage of planning and at the ceremony. He was someone who made us feel like close friends from the moment we met. He was kind, considerate, and kept us on task with everything.

Bill was great to work with! We were looking for someone with a Catholic background (I'm Catholic my husband isn't) who could do our outdoor ceremony and he was the perfect choice. He was responsive, flexible and gave a personalized reflection during our ceremony which we really enjoyed and added a lot to the feel of the ceremony. He was friendly, personable, very easy to work with and I'd definitely recommend him to anyone I know.

Rev. Bill was an amazing officiant and made our wedding truly memorable. He was a joy to work with in crafting our ceremony. His personal reflection during the ceremony was amazing and we were truly touched -- as were our guests. Rev. Bill seemed truly excited and happy to officiate our wedding and that permeates everything he does. Thanks Rev. Bill!

Kaitlyn and Francisco – Thank you for your very kind review. I loved working with you both. Together, we created a ceremony that reflected who you are to each other and the love that you share. I loved the addition to the Nuptial Blessing that you added: “May you always feel that what you have is enough.” There is such wisdom in this sentiment. I so appreciate being invited to officiate at your wedding. Blessings – Rev. Bill

When Ben and I decided to get married in Leesburg, Virginia, we were both fairly new to the area. This made us extremely nervous initially, as the ceremony being genuine and special was a priority to us. After reading reviews for Bill online, we decided to contact him and from the very first moment we met him, we immediately felt comfortable. The ceremony that Bill provided was more special than we could have ever imagined. Our friends & family still tell us it was the best ceremony they've ever seen and cannot believe what a fantastic job Bill did conveying our relationship! We highly recommend him to anyone that wants their ceremony to set the tone for the best and most special day of your lives!!! Amanda & Ben

Rev. Bill exceeded our every expectation we had for an officiant for our ceremony. He was an advisor to us before our wedding, worked with us extensively to create the ceremony of our dreams, all in addition to officiating the most beautiful, touching, and heartfelt ceremony we ever could have imagined. Bill had just returned from a trip to Italy right before our wedding weekend and actually had sustained quite a serious fall. He profusely apologized to us for the bandaid on his forehead and he had a black eye as well. The fact that Bill was concerned that we may be upset with the way that he looked on our wedding day was touching. We were moved beyond words that he still came and officiated such a lovely ceremony despite the immense amount of pain he was in. This should tell you what kind of person he is. He always thinks about others above himself. Regarding your ceremony, Bill will not let you down. Guests came up to us after the wedding to tell us that every time Bill spoke they were moved to tears. Your ceremony will be beautiful, joyous, moving, happy, and light. You should have no hesitations to hire him. In reference to Bill as a person and dealing with him before the wedding.... I cannot emphasize enough that Bill was the best decision my husband and I ever made. Our ceremony was one thing we did not need to worry about. He kept us on track and organized. He respected the fact that it was an interfaith wedding and worked hard to incorporate both faiths and work with the Rabbi. He reminded us to bring our marriage license. He even kept in contact with our wedding planner. We couldn't be more pleased with Rev. Bill. We feel that in life you do not come across people this kind, generous, and life changing often. We couldn't of imagined anybody else officiating our wedding. Rachel & Greg

Rachel and Greg – Thank you for your very gracious review. It was truly my honor and joy to co-officiate at your wedding. I am so happy that you were pleased with the highly-personalized wedding ceremony that we jointly developed over a number of months. I love interfaith weddings and the richness that various faith traditions can bring to a true celebration. While there may be one God, clearly there are many, many paths. As Greg begins his medical residency and you both soon relocate to South Carolina, I wish you every blessing and happiness. Thank you so very much for inviting me to officiate at your wedding. Warm regards – Rev. Bill

When we decided to get married, we needed to find an officiant for our wedding, because for each of us, our faith is important to us. We did plenty of research and when we came across Reverend Bill, we felt like he might be a good fit for what we wanted. We met with Reverend Bill first and we both left that meeting feeling really good as Reverend Bill truly enjoys celebrating the love of two people coming together. Throughout the entire process, we spoke with Bill several times on the phone as he worked to get to really know us because this wasn't like a situation where either of us had a church we were regularly attending at the time. Bill also sent us a workbook, which my wife and I used to learn a little bit more about each other. The book asked questions we'd kind of knew the answers to already, but hadn't sat down and discussed. The ceremony itself was great, and a very unique experience as it was tailored to my wife and me, rather than a cookie-cutter script. I highly recommend Rev. Bill and thank him for all he's done for us.

Kelly and Satya – Thank you for your very kind review. I LOVED working with you and so enjoyed getting to know you as a couple. There is just such love, chemistry and connection between you both. Kelly – you were such a beautiful bride. AND, I so enjoyed your bridal party – we truly had fun both before and after the ceremony. I can’t adequately thank you for selecting me to officiate at your wedding. We now have this wonderful connection for the rest of our lives. I wish you a lifetime of joy! --- Warmly, Rev. Bill

His planning technique for the ceremony--script, vow choices, reading selection, etc...--makes the experience almost seamless.

Bill made the whole process very easy. We didn't know what we were doing, but he was accomodating and able to easily tailor the ceremony to meet our needs/desires for a Catholic style wedding. He was very responsive and able to quickly make revisions to the wedding ceremony script. He gave us a beautiful ceremony, without us having to stress about it. Highly recommended.

Rev. Freeman was a fantastic officiant! We were so glad he participated in our wedding. He helped us through the process from start to finish and let us make the ceremony as customized (or not) as we wanted. He was professional and prompt in interactions, kind and thoughtful, and wrote a short piece for our ceremony that showed he really got us, even while knowing us only a short time!

Sarah and Doug - Thank you for your very kind review. I loved working with you. The wedding ceremony that we developed was so unique -- and the readings were the most unique ever! Nothing could have been better than to be married by candlelight on New Year's Eve at the Renaissance Baltimore Harborside Hotel. I wish you a lifetime of happiness. -- Warmly - Rev. Bill

I can't thank Rev Bill enough for the wonderful ceremony he performed for my daughter and her husband. He took the time to get to know them before and was able to personalize the ceremony. It made me so very happy that Rev. Bill came to the hotel to perform the wedding.

Mrs. Brown - Thank you for your very kind comments. It was such a pleasure to be part of Melissa and Kevin's wedding. The Hilton McLean Tysons Corner was just a magnificent wedding venue. I wish you and the happy couple every blessing - Rev. Bill

My husband and I were looking for a Wedding Officiant who was willing to combine his Catholic faith with my non-traditional Christian faith. When we first started the search, we were unsure we would find someone. But then we came across Reverend Freeman and we knew he was the one. He worked closely with us to create a personalized ceremony that pleased both of our families as well as Daniel and I. We could not have asked for a better wedding ceremony. It was beautiful and heart-felt, with just the right amount of traditional and non-traditional pieces. Revered Freeman helped us to take our first steps as husband and wife. We are truly thankful that he was a part of our special day.

Katie and Dan – Thanks so much for your review and kind words. Your wedding was awesome. I loved how you both showed up at your rehearsal in Halloween costumes and Dan with a “ball and chain!” You were so wonderful to work with. I can’t say enough about the awesome venue with the autumn leaves as a beautiful background. I was so deeply moved by your tribute to your families. Many wonderful wishes for a lifetime of happiness. Warmly – Rev. Bill
