More reviews from Pastor Read's customers:
Pastor Bill did an amazing job officiating our wedding. We really appreciated that he was genuinely interested in getting to know us and our thoughts and wishes for the type of ceremony we wanted and helped us tailor it specifically for us. He was familiar with our venue and made our rehearsal and day of logistics a breeze! We had a lot of compliments afterwards on how beautiful the ceremony was. Can't thank him enough!!
My now husband and I were looking for a wedding officiant for wedding. Through Thumbtack we found the perfect fit in Pastor Bill Read. We left our initial meeting with Pastor Read knowing that he would provide us with the ceremony we envisioned. Prayer was important to me to incorporate into our ceremony; however, it was equally as important to my fiancée© for our ceremony to follow a more secular route. Pastor Read delivered the perfect blend. Our rehearsal was well organized and we practiced until everyone understood the order of the day and its importance. We were beyond happy with the service. Several guests commented on how much they enjoyed the ceremony. It was just the right length (about 22 minutes), highlighted our wants and personalities, and was truly thoughtful and unique.
I have no doubt that Pastor Read will deliver the perfect ceremony for your wedding. It is obvious that this is not something he does for money but something he does as a true service and calling. He is open to any type of ceremony; he listens to your wants, needs and concerns, and makes you feel the importance of this special day. What I have enjoyed most from working with Pastor Read is that my husband and I have found someone who is willing to help and guide us whenever needed through the ups and downs of our marriage. We strongly recommend meeting with this remarkable man and finding out for yourself how great he is. Thank you Pastor Read for making the most important part of our wedding day unforgettable!
Pastor Bill did my small outdoor wedding (50 people) and he was amazing. He was so easy to work with and even let me customize the ceremony. He truly made my wedding ceremony special. I couldn’t have been happier and received so many compliments on the ceremony. It was even better than I dreamed of. Thank you so much Pastor Bill.
Pastor Bill was absolutely fantastic!! He was a pleasure to work with and has helped us greatly throughout the entire wedding preparation process. He was always available to talk and was always easily reachable. He prepared a perfect ceremony for us and listened to every request and question that we had. Everyone loved him and our ceremony, so I would 100% recommend him to any couple who is looking for someone to officiate their wedding!
PBR is amazing. We were late for our service and he hung out like a friend until the bride finally showed up :) He performed a beautiful service, his words were inspiring and on point, not just all about religion. I would recommend pastor Bill to any couple who wants to take the plunge... LOL
