About

Why just have a wedding – have an amazing wedding experience -- and a memory that will last a lifetime. My ceremonies are highly-personalized, unique and wonderful. 

Ceremonies that are personalized -- progressive -- passionate

I offer an all-inclusive, highly-personalized Catholic and interfaith wedding ministry. Whether a first of second marriage, an interfaith celebration, a same-sex wedding, or a uniquely spiritual ceremony, let me help you craft the perfect day and create a memory that will last a lifetime!

Today, many current and former Catholics -- and others -- are searching for an inviting wedding experience with the richness of the Catholic tradition yet different from that provided by the Roman Catholic Church. In fact, 40% of Roman Catholics are marrying outside of the institutional Church.

Maybe you're looking for a personalized interfaith or spiritual ceremony uniquely designed to express your current values and beliefs. And you're looking for a ceremony that captures the joy and excitement of this wonderful time in life.

Togethr let's create the wedding ceremony you've been dreaming of and a memory that will last a lifetime. 

The location for your wedding is entirely your choice. Ceremonies can be held out-of-doors. The beach, the mountains, hotels, museums and private homes are all wonderful options. The Greater Washington DC area provides many exciting venues. 

I am Rev. William (Bill) Freeman, a validly-ordained Catholic priest and wedding officiate, living and working in Northern Virginia. It would be my privilege to help you create the wedding ceremony of your dreams. 

I work with couples of all faith traditions including those with a spirituality of their own. Together, we'll create a unique and wonderful ceremony -- a wedding that's yours, and yours alone. 

Available for weddings in Northern Virginia, Washington, DC, and Southern Maryland

I look forward to hearing from you. Please contact me at 703-951-7090 (work); 703-475-2050 (cell) or by email at WFreeman@ProgressiveCatholics.org

Reverend Bill was SO wonderful! He has such a calming, reassuring presence, which made us feel so comfortable. We have received so many compliments on how beautiful the ceremony was, even from my father-in-law (who was so resistant to us getting married outside of the church)! I would absolutely recommend him, he was one of the best decisions we made for the wedding!
