"Bill, you were absolutely amazing! I can’t say enough great things about how great you were. The ceremony was beautiful.. it was just what I wanted.. short, sweet, and filled with meaning and love. The vows you had for us were on another level...if my husband had to repeat one more sentence he was about to start crying and I mean balling. They were beautifully written and you were just so incredible. Everyone stated how amazing our ceremony was and that’s all due to you. From the very start of our first email exchange I knew you were the right man for the job. You were great to work with and your worksheet just made things so so simple and the options you have to choose from are magnificent! I do sincerely apologize for the mic mishap and how it was cutting in and out but please take comfort in knowing everyone did hear you even when the mic was cutting out. It must have been nerve wracking on your end and I just want you to know I’m sorry that happened to you but you were calm and professional and kept it going. I appreciate everything you did for us .. thank you for making our day so special .. it simply could not have been that amazing and special without you. Anyone who is considering using Pastor Bill.. book him. Don’t hesitate he is truly amazing!! Thank you thank you. Yours very truly. Marlena and Craig - Xoxo" (from the Knot)

Thank you for being a part of our wedding ceremony! We couldn't ask for a better officiant. You were very kind, and very quick in responding with my many emails! We got many compliments for the intimate ceremony. I loved how you were so organized and sent me those notes, which really made my life easier. And even better, when we met up, I was organized also and made things much easier to handle. Thank you for making our wedding very memorable!  

- Jennie & Charles

We just got back from our brief honeymoon, a wonderful few days of rest and relaxation in the Florida Keys; and we just wanted to express another round of thanks; thank you for blessing our wedding with just that perfect mixture of eloquence and comfort and warmth that made the event very loving, familial, and familiar.  We couldn't be happier.

- Danna and Ed

Thank you Pastor Bill!  You were terrific - all evening we were getting compliments on the ceremony & our guests kept saying how pleasant you were.  Again, thanks so much for making our day so special

- Valerie & Jason

Thank you for taking the time to meet with us beforehand -- we felt very comfortable with you right away and appreciated that you really listened to our ideas and the vision that we had for our ceremony.  You also offered us many wonderful suggestions about what to include in the ceremony (and we ended up utilizing quite a few of those suggestions!).  Since we were having an outdoor ceremony (in Central Park), the potential for extra stress was there, but you helped make sure everything ran smoothly.  For all those brides out there who are overwhelmed with all those decisions to be made, give Pastor Bill a call-- you can relax knowing you are in good hands.


- Rich & Lori

We received so many compliments on you. You  did such a grea job and made us so comfortable. Thank you so much for being our minister, we would pick you agin if we had the chance.

- Luke & Jennifer

Wanted to let you know it was our one year anniversary yesterday and reflecting back on our wedding day led us to thinking about you and your beautiful service.  We really enjoyed it, as did our guests.  You helped to make our ceremony exactly as we wanted it, meaningful, yet relaxed, sweet and fun.  Thank you again for helping us through what could have been a stressful part of our wedding day!

- Melissa & Patrick

We were truly pleased with the way that you handled our ceremony! We especially enjoyed sitting down and speaking with you about our ideas and future plans. Thanks so much for making our wedding possible! I have to honestly say I don't know what we would have done without you! We will be forever grateful!!     

- Victoria & David

Hi everyone, My name is Karen.  My husband Marc and I were married on August  13, 2005 at Yankee Stadium in Bronx, NY.  We are from Massachusetts.  I would recommend Pastor Bill to ANYONE... especially if you are doing a NY destination wedding.  He did such a nice ceremony!  Of course it is hard putting your  trust in someone you have never even met, but that day was absolutely wonderful. He works with you to meet your needs and he exceeded all expectations we had. I received many compliments from my guests as well.  The ceremony was meaningful, sweet, not too short & not too long... I couldn't have prayed for a better day & I hope you choose to use him as well.
And by  the way, Marc and I are the second couple to get married at Yankee Stadium in the last 10 years. How is that for statistics! We were on the centerfield wall in front of 50,000 fans! Is that not cool or what!!!

- Karen & Marc

Thanks so much for everything.  The ceremony was beautiful, roosters crowing and all.  There was a lot of crying going on out there.  I'm sorry we missed you, you slipped out the back door.  We look forward to recommending your services in the future.

- Christina & Gaston

Thanks again for helping make our wedding day so special.  You were a pleasure to work with and your wedding outline was a joy to use when planning the ceremony.  Chris and I were able to focus on other aspects of the wedding since your outline laid out everything in black and white for us to choose.  We couldn't have done it without you!  

- Joanna & Chris

Our wedding turned out just the way we wanted it to - an intimate gathering of our immediate family and close friends to share in our happiness.  The way you accommodated us by switching venues because of the terrible rain storm that was coming our way helped to alleviate any stress we may have had.

- Damaris & Juan

Chris & I want to thank you so much for the most beautiful ceremony!  All of our guests have been raving about you and the ceremony you performed. Our reception went absolutely perfect.  All of our guests cannot stop talking about the entire wedding.  We could not have asked for a better day/night.

- Tara & Chris

Clergy on Call Ministries are no joke, although Pastor Bill does have a great sense of humor! My last minute decision for a wedding ceremony, which was slightly offbeat, and involved both religious and cultural differences, could not have occurred without Pastor Bill. He provided examples that enabled me to write my wedding "script", which he followed beautifully. My guests were quite impressed with him. I would recommend Pastor Bill without hesitation.         

- Judy & Michael

First off, let me say thank you SO MUCH on behalf of myself and Gabe for the great job you did with our wedding ceremony.  I cannot tell you how many people commented on how beautiful it was.  Given our different religious backgrounds and the overwhelming heat on that day, your task was not easy--which makes the fact that it was so wonderful even more appreciated.

- Beth & Gabe

We truly appreciated everything you did to make our day so special, and my sisters day too!  With the ceremony being the most important part of the day, I was so fortunate that we found you to perform it. I would highly recommend you to anyone.

- Sue & Shawn

Pastor Bill was beyond our expectations! From start to finish, he was so attentive to our need and desired for our ceremony. At our meeting, he went over the ceremony line for line with us and made sure that our ceremony was exactly what we wanted. My father could not stop saying that He Loved the ceremony! A++++

- Mimi & Frank

Pastor Bill was great!!! It was so easy to communicate with him throughout the planning process. He got back to us withing the hour every time we contacted him!! The ceremony was amazing and he spoke so well. He even threw a little surprise speech in there about marriage which was really nice and memorable. I won't say too much in case some of you are usingn him.  ...  he honestly did a great job... we recommend him!  A+

- Jessica & Leonard

Hello Pastor Bill. Nicholas and I wanted to thank you so much for the beautiful ceremony.  Every word you spoke and we spoke we’re perfect. You were right, we loved your sermon on white water!!!!!!  Thank you again  - we were so happy with everything even though it was so HOT – you were wonderful.

- Carol & Nicholas

Dear Pastor Bill, We wanted to thank you so much for the very beautiful and unique ceremony that you performed for us on Friday.  Everyone and we mean everyone raved about it and how it was the most beautiful ceremony they have ever seen.  We were so happy with it.  We can't believe the whole day is over already though :(  We can't wait to relive the ceremony when we see the video.  So thank you again for all your preparation and attention to details.  We are so pleased!

- Amber & Michael

Thank you Pastor Bill!  You were terrific- all evening we were getting compliments on the ceremony & our guests kept saying how pleasant you were… Btw, Jason & I would love to write a testimonial that you can post on your webpage.  We’ll try to get around to that this wknd.  Again, thanks so much for making our day so special.

- Valerie & Ed

Dear Pastor Bill, Thank you so much for performing the beautiful ceremony at our wedding yesterday. You really have made us feel so comfortable and your words were so sincere. All of our guests loved the blessing of the hands, and we really did too. Thank you again, and we will be sure to send pictures very soon.

- Melissa & Kevin

Hello Pastor Bill!! How are you? Paul & I just wanted to say THANK YOU!  the ceremony was absolutely wonderful! Better than we ever could have dreamed of! you did an incredible job! We loved your surprise speech & so did our guests as well.  You will certainly be highly recommended by us for our friends & family to use as well as on my LIW wedding review. Also--I was wondering if you could send me a copy of your white water rafting part of the speech because we are typing the vows up & inserting it in our photo album & we would really love to have that part as well as another great memory.     thank you-we truly would appreciate it.

- Sabrina & Paul

Many of our guests commented on how great you were. We really appreciate the words you spoke, and the moments you helped us create. You will be forever in our hearts and minds. Thank you again.

- Christine & Anthony

We are back from our honeymoon and trying to catch up with a number of things. I did want to reach out to you again to  say thank you.  Everyone we talked to said the ceremony was beautiful.  Jack ad I were out kayaking  today and it reminded us of the white water rafting homily you gave. If you do not mind I would like to give your name to Ros and Perry at the Old Field so they can refer people to you as well.  They gave me a list of vendors they work with but did not have any for Officiants. We were lucky to find you as the ceremony was perfect for us.  

- Keri and Jack

Thank you for a beautiful wedding ceremony. You took a lot of the stress out of the day by meeting with you and using your worksheet. You knew what we wanted, and it all came together perfectly. We received so many compliments on the ceremony, everyone was very impressed. You really gave it a person touch. Thanks again and we will definitely recommend you to future brides and grooms.

- Debbie and Kenny

I have been meaning to email you. We have been crazy busy moving and settling in. We both wanted to thank you so much for the wonderful job you did! We received a lot of compliments and the ceremony was absolutely beautiful!

- Michelle and Anthony

We just wanted to thank you again for performing our ceremony.  We received many compliments, especially on the parts that included our mothers. Everyone loved how the ceremony was different. The ceremony was beautiful, and you made us both feel a little less nervous (although I was still shaking a little, and Glenn kept his hand in his pocket LOL). Thank you for making our day so special.

- Jennifer and Glenn

Thank you again for everything. The ceremony was perfect and everyone was so impressed! It could not have happened without you. Thanks so much again.

- Laura and Kahlil

Pastor Bill Britton presided over our wedding on December 19, 2010 and he did such a wonderful job. The ceremony was absolutely beautifully done by the Pastor. As a matter of fact,  we have got many compliments by family members and guests as to how we found Pastor Bill and how beautiful  of a job he did and how he helped to make our ceremony a memorable one. We would highly recommend Pastor Bill to anyone looking for someone to presided over their affair.    (Russo's on the Bay in Howard Beach)

- Danielle and Ralph

We would like to thank you for contributing to our special day. From the beggining you were patient with our decisions, and we gladly appreciate it. The ceremony is the most important part of the day and you helped exceed our expectations. Thanks again, and we would definitely recommend you to anyone getting married. Good luck in all of your future endeavors!  (Antun's in Queens Village)

- Lillian and Rhasheen

“Our wedding ceremony went perfect and we owe this all to Pastor Bill. Pastor Bill did an excellent job, he helped us feel comfortable and kept the ceremony beautiful. Our guests were raving how flawless the ceremony was and how unique our vows were. They also loved that Pastor Bill helped introduce a little humor into our ceremony, as both my wife and I had been dating for 15 years prior to tying the knot. Thanks again for everything, we highly recommend Pastor Bill!”  (Bedell Cellars in Cutchogue)

- Tim and Cassandra

Thank you so much for being such an important part of our wedding ceremony! We couldn't have asked for a better officiant. You were very kind, comforting, and organized, which really helped to put us at ease during the hectic process of planning a wedding. We got compliments from many of our guests for the moving ceremony, and we are so glad that you were able to stay for the reception to help us celebrate! Best wishes, Nicole and Jose (Jericho Terrace in Mineola)

- Nicole and Jose

Pastor Bill helped make our ceremony seemless. From our initial correspondence with him, he was helpful, informative, reliable and prompt. We especially like the manner in which he worked with us to develop wedding vows to suite our ceremony. In addition, he provided us with helpful hints and advice to ease our anxiety before the wedding. We would definitley recommend Pastor Bill to anyone looking for a wedding officiant.

- Jason & Linda

Pastor Bill, Thanks so much for the wonderful day you shared with us. My family and friends were impressed by your professionalism and warmth. Thank you for helping to make it the best day of our lives.   :)

- Yvonne & Ilya

Hello Pastor Bill, I finally get some time to e-mail you. My husband and I would like to thank you for the wonderful service that you provided. It would be a pleasure to have you for our 2012 ceremony. I will definitely recommend you to my friends and family. Great Job!!  Thanks again.

- Natasha & Deron

Can't believe 3 months have past already.  We were extremely happy with how our wedding turned out!  Many of our family and guests were touched and inspired by our ceremony and wedding.  Thank you very much for your preparation and for performing the ceremony. Thank you again for being a part of our wedding.

- Candice & Alex

Hi Pastor Bill, I would like to start off by saying you looked smashing on the day of our wedding! With that said, both me and my husband Julio would like to sincerely thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our wedding day as special as you have made it. From the beginning of the process until the actually day of our ceremony, you were the one aspect that I truly knew I would not have to worry about. You made yourself easily accessible to us with every question and concern we had while reassuring us that all will go well. You couldn’t have been more right. Choosing to meet you prior to our special day was a great choice we made. It was almost as if we knew you for years! Your cool, calm and collective personality eased my nerves more than you may have recognized. We couldn’t have picked a better officiant to perform our wedding and we are so very grateful to have made your acquaintance. With sincere gratitude, Mr. and Mrs. P.

- Jenny & Julio

We couldn’t believe how well the ceremony flowed and many of our guests commented on how wonderful it was.    Old Field Club in Setauket, 2011

- Kristen & Brian

Thank you so much for everything Pastor Bill!  For coming on short notice, getting there early on the day, and making our ceremony so special.  We received compliments on the originality of the ceremony and many were touched.  Thanks again!  We’ll be sure to recommend you to anyone looking to get hitched!

- Azeb & Randy

The feedback we are getting from our friends and family about the wedding is beyond positive. Pastor Bill Britton’s flexibility in the way the ceremony is performed makes him a very desirable wedding officiant. Our friends still cannot believe that we were able to include a religious theme in our civil wedding. As Filipinos, it is important that we had a sense of Catholicism in our matrimony; we are truly grateful to Pastor Bill Britton for making that happen. His services are also not limited to the ceremony itself. He guides you from the start to the end and will answer any questions you might have about the whole process. We feel lucky to have found Pastor Bill and honored to have had him as our wedding officiant; his services did not only impress us but also those who attended our wedding. Surely in the future, we will see him again as a pastor for one of our friend’s wedding.      Astoria Manor, 2011

- Daisy & Alex

We are still getting compliments on our ceremony and we cannot thank you enough!!  It was a beautiful day... and we are still smiling!! Thanks again for all your help and making our day extra special!!

- Theresa & John

Pastor Bill made our special day MAGICAL!  I found Pastor Bill on a whim by simply googling wedding officiants on the internet.  He is as charming in person as he looks in his photos.  Although my wife thought I was crazy for finding our wedding officiant in this way she agreed to meet him.  From that very first meeting with him, she felt very comfortable having him marry us.  He is warm, down to earth, supportive, knowledgable, and professional with a wonderful sense of humor.  He is well-organized and meticulous with his paperwork and communication.  He made us feel like our wedding was custom-tailored to fit the emotions and love we have for one another.  He was a joy to have at our wedding and we could not have asked for a more genuine and sincere person to marry us!  Thanks again Pastor Bill.  We love you!

- Lys & Robert

I have been meaning to email you. We have been crazy busy moving and settling in. We both wanted to thank you so much for the wonderful job you did! We received a lot of compliments and the ceremony was absolutely beautiful! 

- Michelle & Anthony

Hello Pastor Bill. Thank you so very much for the link and the beautiful words you wrote. It was a real pleasure to have you officiate our wedding. You helped to make our day even more special and beautiful. Our ceremony was just like we wanted it...intimate, sweet, heart to heart and unique. You did such an amazing job! Your support and patience was present at every moment. We are very happy that everybody loved the ceremony and your beautiful words. We just made it back to the U.S. a couple of days ago from our honeymoon and we couldn't wait to write you to express our gratitude to you for all that you did. We loved everything about it. We felt the love in the air and like you said..."it was a beautiful - Fall day in Central Park."  We will always remember you!  Warmest regards, Moni and James
