When my wife and I first contacted Bill, we had never met or spoken with him before. We found him online when we were searching for an officiant in our area. We went back and forth via email at first which is when he asked us our ceremonial preferences (religious views, interests, a little history about our relationship, size of the wedding, etc). We explained to him (to the best of our ability) what kind of ceremony we wanted and within just a day or two he had written a draft of our ceremony for our review. I can be picky about written words (I'm a writer), but Bill's work was beautiful - I had a difficult time finding any flaw within his words.
Before the wedding, we had set up a meeting with Bill and he was more than flexible when deciding when and where to meet. He brought along his wife, who is also an officiant, and we had a very comfortable, relaxed meeting where all of us got to know one another before we discussed our ceremony. It was a relatively brief meeting, but all questions my (now) wife and I had were answered, and any nervousness and awkwardness we may have had was instantly taken away by Bill's homely and comforting demeanor.
On the day of the ceremony, Bill was perfect. He was cool, calm and collected, which was a much needed comfort to my wife and I. During his performance, his delivery was calming and flawless. He had a very comforting and relaxed way of delivery his lines which made my wife and I feel very settled and at ease. Bill was extremely professional and courteous the entire time. He directed us through the process of the ceremony and helped us sign our marriage papers.
All in all, I couldn't ask any more from an officiant. If you are looking for a soothing, comforting and extremely friendly officiant, Bill Fenton is your man.
I could not be happier with the service he provided for us.

Bill and I had a great conversation a couple days after I began the search for an officiant. Bill was quick to respond and we were fortunate that he was available for our wedding date. He spoke well and was fun to work with. We went through name pronunciation, the entire ceremony and all the major details of timeline giving us the confidence that things would be perfect. We invited him to the rehearsal which was key because it gave us an opportunity to meet prior which I highly suggest all couples do. We would recommend to a friend and are very happy with the service Bill provided day of and prior to the event. Thank you Bill!

You were like one of the family to us.

Perfect Officiant for our 75 Person Wedding!
Bill was everything we hoped for, professional, organized, timely. He took the bulk of the pressure off our wedding day and added a lot of character (he is!) and charm. His process is very straightforward and efficient yet meaningful. We were very pleased and would highly recommend Bill!

5/5 10/10 100/100. We had a great wedding experience, the ceremony felt personal and had elements to it that made us feel like we'd known Bill forever! Would recommend 100 times over. We had some issues with our minister a couple months before the wedding and Bill was available to come through for us in our time of need. Thank you so much Bill, you rock!Sent on 10/03/2018

Bill was absolutely amazing for our wedding, we couldn’t have asked for a better officiant!! He made us feel very relaxed about the whole process from start to finish. Very professional, yet personable and a joy to work with. Would highly recommend!
Morgan · Married on 04/27/2018
Bill did an awesome job officiating our little wedding! We wanted something smaller with just our immediate family as we both had been married before and he made it funny and personal just as we had hoped! He made the day exciting and special for us for sure!
After the ceremony we had a family member taking some pictures and the memory card became full. Without hesitation Bill said, “I have my camera in the car, I’ll take some pictures and send them over to you!” He was so helpful and we were able to get some more pictures because of his thoughtfulness. Highly recommend him!

Bill & Lori Fenton were very responsive and helpful. I spoke with Bill on the phone and Lori performed the ceremony. The vows they wrote were perfect. We couldn't have asked for a better Officiant, she was the best.

Meeting with Bill was so fun and his experience showed in the quick and efficient execution of exactly what we intended in terms of getting married. The experience was very relaxing and his small informational tidbits made us enjoy more. We were very lucky to find him and would recommend highly to anyone who wants to avoid courts to get married but doesn't want to spend too much.

Bill was fantastic! Really cannot say anything but positive comments - he responded quickly when were scheduling our ceremony, he was early on the date, he was engaging and funny during the ceremony, efficient, thorough and thoughtful with the paperwork - perfect for our needs and would highly recommend his services.

This was the second (yes, second) time using Bill's service. He's always a pleasure to meet with. I recommend him to everyone I know that gets engaged.

Bill was very accommodating to us. We emailed looking for service within two weeks and he was able to accommodate us the same day! He has such a wonderful personality and it made our very non traditional day an amazing story to tell! We plan on doing a bigger ceremony in a couple of years and plan on using Bill for that as well. Within five minutes of meeting him, you’ll feel as if you’ve known him forever. We 100% recommend him!
Sharon · Married on 12/01/2017
Bill was awesome! My daughter didn't know she needed an appointment to get married at the courthouse, and Bill was able to meet us at the coffeeshop the same day...he even went above and beyond and performed a quick ceremony outside at a building down the street. It was perfect! I would highly recommend him!
Douglas · Married on 12/01/2017
Bill has just the right personality and manner to make this a fun, yet serious and blessed event for all. It was perfect! (We are planning a full formal wedding next year, but the kids didn't want to wait until then to be officially married).
Shawn · Married on 12/01/2017

Morgan · Married on 10/27/2017
Very customizable. They wrote a beautiful ceremony for us. We loved it!
Stephanie · Married on 10/21/2017
My husband I loved Bill, from the moment I inquired about him he was on top of everything and answered right away when I'd email him. When we met Bill in person it was as if we knew him forever, he's so personal and really is just there for you to make your day perfect. He's right when you're up there in the moment you forget everyone else is watching. I'll be referring him to all of newly engaged friends and business since I'm in the wedding business :)Sent on 11/06/2017

Bill was awesome, we contacted him on very short notice and he was very accommodating. I can not express how grateful I am to Bill. Great communication and flexible, thank you again for everything.
Rebecca · Married on 08/12/2017
We are so happy we chose to use Bill as our wedding officiant. He was easy to work with, friendly, and receptive to our ideas. He wrote a beautiful ceremony for us, and included everything we asked him to include. We knew exactly what he was going to say during the ceremony, since he sends you a copy ahead of time to review and edit as you wish. He offered helpful advice throughout the whole process about the ceremony and even marriage itself. He made us feel really comfortable. By the end of our wedding we felt like Bill was a friend we knew for a long time, not just an officiant we found on wedding review sites. He really cared about us as a couple and just made our day even more special. We would recommend him to any other couple looking for a wedding officiant. He did an excellent job!
