From Lane and Chris
Rev. Will, you did a fantastic job! You were an absolute joy to work with. As far as rating you: 5 stars, 10 thumbs up, a dozen eggs -- you're the best! You were not only extremely responsive during our planning and leading up to the wedding but you always had great input into how the ceremony could be improved. You are warm, friendly, professional, responsible and funny. You did an excellent job performing our ceremony. We highly recommend you to everyone!!!
From Selma and Marko
We are a couple (30 & 32) from Vienna, Austria, who were looking to do something special, something extraordinary, and therefore chose NYC as our wedding location. We found Rev. Will by googling "NYC Wedding Officiant" and contacted him and about 15-20 of his colleagues in the City. Rev. Will was not only the fastest to respond but we immediately felt "important" and "well served" as he was able to give us clear and understandable information regarding our wishes and requirements. We also immediately felt that Rev. Will is a professional and reliable man. For us, coming basically "blind" to NYC and wanting a small-but-perfect wedding experience, having Rev. Will as our officiant was as easygoing an experience as anyone could imagine. He was always quickly responsive by mail & telephone whether it was suggestions for the wedding location in Central Park, possible flower or limo service or a photographer -- Rev. Will was and is just a perfect guy to perform your wedding ceremony. We got married at the Ladies Pavilion in Central Park on a beautiful Wednesday afternoon. Rev. Will was, unlike us, on time, prepared and organized. His kindness helped cool down our anxiety and even though we had no immediate family members with us, Rev. Will totally gave us the feeling that we were not "alone" out there, and what a relief that was. Even though there's an ocean between us and we won't be coming to NYC on a weekly basis, we can definitely say that we've become friends with Rev. Will for lifetime.
From Naomi and Michael
Words cannot adequately express our deepest appreciation to Rev. Will. When my husband and I first began to search for an officiant we weren't sure what to expect. We found ourselves in the vulnerable position of having to find a new wedding officiant only four weeks before the Wedding because the officiant we had arranged to use suddenly canceled on us. Despite this late beginning, Rev. Will was extremely respectful of both families' concerns, and tailored the entire Ceremony to be exactly what we wanted as a couple. Rev. Will is patient, warm, attentive, personable and professional. We appreciated his counsel and the time he spent getting to know us as a couple. He was above and beyond our expectations. He was always immediate in replying to our emails, prompt on our conference calls and physical meetings for planning our Wedding and was very helpful at our Rehearsal. Our Ceremony was not only a true reflection of our values but genuinely personal and intimate. Our guests are still commenting on how beautifully they felt our Wedding was performed.
From Stephanie and Tom
Rev. Will Mercer is a very personable and collaborative wedding officiant. We met with Rev. Will to discuss our vision for our wedding day and he was very receptive to our ideas. He partnered with us to create a ceremony that worked within our personal beliefs and represented our feelings about each other and he shared it elegantly with our guests on that special day. All the best to you, Rev. Will.
From Sunita and Jared
I married my true love in June 2009. We decided to have a very simple, family-oriented ceremony. Neither of us belonged to a church and we were very concerned that we would not be able to to find the right minister to marry us. After much research, we found Rev. Will Mercer online and set up a meeting with him. As soon as Jared and I sat down with Will, we knew he was exactly the person we were looking for. My husband and I have three children and each child had a role in the wedding. Our siblings, parents, step-parents, nieces and nephews also participated in the ceremony. Will was extremely patient and listened to what we wanted. He gave us useful information and advice; but also gave us plenty of freedom to do what we wanted. Rev. Will Mercer was fabulous and he helped make our wedding memorable and very special to us! Thank you, Will!
From Darryl and Jana
From the first conversation over the phone to the ceremony itself, Rev. Will was fantastic! He did everything to make our wedding exactly as we had envisioned -- composing a beautiful (Buddhist) ceremony to reflect our own spiritual commitments, going with the flow as plans changed, and finally gracing our friends and family with his warm and supportive presence at the wedding. We consider ourselves lucky to have found such a professional, responsible, and knowledgeable clergy person, and give him our highest recommendation.
From Justin and Anna Maria
Rev. Will provided us with exactly what we discussed during the preparation for the ceremony. This included keeping the ceremony moving forward in a timely manner. His recommendations regarding the structure of the ceremony as well as the welcomed additions he suggested we make to the ceremony were greatly appreciated by both myself and wife. The ceremony went extremely well. We could not have made a better choice as an officiant. Thank you again, Rev. Will
From Robin and Marta
Having Rev. Will Mercer perform our ceremony was the best decision we could have made when choosing an officiant for our wedding. From the very beginning he was extremely warm, sincere and helpful while also displaying a great deal of professionalism. Rev. Will's delivery was absolutely flawless and the entire ceremony was an experience that we will have wonderful memories of for the rest of our lives. Thanks, Rev. Will, for a wonderful job in officiating the ceremony. Things couldn't have been more perfect.
From Becky and Neal
Rev. Will exceeded all of our expectations. From the first time we met him through the day of the wedding, he was always friendly, supportive, open-minded and available to help us shape one of the most important pieces of our wedding day, our ceremony. With Will's support and guidance, we created a most beautiful, emotional, and personal ceremony that completely captured our love for one another and the importance of that day. His demeanor and presence were perfect as he led the ceremony with grace, focusing attention on the occasion of the two of us declaring our love and commitment in front of family and friends. On a day that can be filled with the stress of coordinating a lot of different moving parts, Will came through and we couldn't have been happier! We would absolutely recommend his services to anyone who is looking for a wedding officiant to help them create their special day. It truly was the most amazing day of our lives, Will, and a big part of that was thanks to your role in our wedding!
From Katie and Scott
Rev. Will was such a pleasure to work with--he was always happy, eager, and yet completely easy going. We only saw him once when we visited briefly from Chicago to make initial arrangements for our wedding. Despite the distance, Will made sure that our ceremony was exactly what we wanted--from the written ceremony to his ministerial clothing for the occasion. He even arranged to purchase the hurricane globe for our Unity Candle so that we didn't have to bring it by plane from Chicago. We were lucky to have Rev. Will as our wedding minister! Will, we wish you the best!
From Chris and Angie
A Wedding is one of the most important days of people's lives. Having a wedding minister that understood this -- our faith, beliefs and values -- was extremely important to us. Rev. Will's professionalism is second to none! He drove twice to our location in the mountains for both the Rehearsal and the Wedding, and was always ready to help in any way he could. For a lifetime my wife, Angie, and I will have the greatest memories of our Wedding. Rev. Will helped facilitate our Wedding in a wonderful way! We were more than pleased with his work. Will, we keep each of the engraved "Forgive" stones that you gave us on our night stands. We wish you a happy marriage as well. Congratulations!
