We are so excited about our wedding! Feel free to share your thoughts or comments within this section of our site. And be sure to visit often as we will be making additions to many pages and adding more photos and more details about the big day!
Your love story and wedding site and photos have touched me deeply. And I even see myself a bit reflected as well. I met my partner through Facebook 3 years ago, aiming to get some local advice on my intention of coming to Australia to take a postgraduate program -I'm chilean. And I found a soulmate! And it's true, Jim, when you know, YOU KNOW. =)
Jim, Bill, nothing but the best for you both, you guys are just lovely and it is clear that you belong together and deserve each other.
Best wishes from Canberra,
I love you two!!!
YOU ARE BOTH SO HOTT!!!! i love it
You two are the cutest couple I've ever seen! Jim, I loved your singing on American Idol. I just saw you in Eating Out and it renewed my interest in you, so I was about to do a Google search for you when I saw that one of the suggestions was "Jim Verraros wedding"... which eventually led me here! I saw your amazing wedding video– you two are so right for each other! It makes me so happy to know that you ended up with someone that so compliments you in every way.
All the best to you to,
Your wedding video & photos touched me deeply. My husband - also "Bill" - & I feel very fortunate to live in a progressive & diverse neighborhood in Greenfield, MA. My 91 year old mother once said to me that no one should be denied the right to love & marry - no matter who they are. Take care of each other.
Thank you for sharing your love story.
Awesome website. LoVette :D
I know I'm a bit late with this, but congrats you two. (Jim: I'm married to a Bill as well here in CT... aren't they just the best? :)
How Beautiful!! Thank you for sharing your Wedding with the public. I wish the two of you the very best in life. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Johnnie, Lexington, KY
I'm really glad that I came across your website. Such a pleasure to see people who are happily in love. Best wishes on your marriage, and in addition I wish you strength and patience as all married couples need them sometimes, right? ;) Please, be happy!
Have a good weekend!
From Moscow with love,
I am so happy for you two. I saw Jim in Eating Out and was an instant fan. I had just came out and it gave me comfort knowing there are other "different" people out there. You guys really give the US hope and reassurance that we are evolving as an open minded people. Thank you and have a wonderful like together.
Hey guys, congratulations!!! I was deeply touched by your story and only wanted to wish you happiness, and more and more love everyday :)
I only stumbled upon your story by pure chance and i can honestly say i've never been so happy to click a bottom page link on afterelton.com in my entire life!
You two are living proof that age, gender, stereotypes, and societies rules are nothing that can stand in the way of a purely true love, and for that i thank you. thank you for giving me hope that there is someone out there for everyone and that you may find them in the most unexpected places.
i truly and sincerely hope that all your dreams come true and that both of you will stay together not only in this life but the next ones to come as well.
Your fan, Manda Poland

Hello Bill and Jim and Congrats to you both! Your wedding day looks like it was amazing and full of happiness. I wish you the best for your new life as one. May you always treat each other with respect and live each day as though it was your last.
Just would like to say that it warms my heart to see two people so happy and in love. Your wedding was beautiful! I wish y'all many years of happiness and good health. I think many couples will learn from your relationship, that no matter how many obstacles are thrown your way, you will overcome them just by the love that shines in your eyes. God bless both of you :)
Congratulations and Best Wishes to you both!! You look like a great couple. May your love last a lifetime! God Bless you both. Loved the website!
CONGRATULATIONS to you both. Jim, I have followed your career since American Idol. I am so happy that the two of you have each other. Much Happiness to you now and in the future!
Your love for one another just leaps off the page. May you have a long and happy life together. Congrats!
Congratulations to both of you! May you share a long and very happy life together!
We read your story and think you guys are so cute together. We wish you all the best. We have been together ourselves for 10 yrs. God bless you both!!!
Your story is one of the most beautiful and inspiring I have heard in a long time. I wish the two of you a lifetime of peace, love and joy ~ You deserve nothing less!
Congratulations, you two look and sound truly happy and in love - I hope you have a lifetime of happiness together.
Congratulations guys! Hopefully one day your marriage will be legal in the whole USA.
What an absolutely beautiful wedding you two had. May this be just the beginning or a lifetime of happy memories and love shared. It's sad that some states still discriminate against gays and lesbians but I am confident that will change soon.
As another couple residing where rights are not fully equivalent to our hetero brothers and sisters we applaud you for showcasing your love for all to see. Wishing you decades of happiness and countless trips of sun, fun, and white sandy beaches! You are an inspiration to many, and a shining beacon to all.
Bill - How wonderful!! Congrats!! We worked together eons ago when you and Dave were running the Bridal Shows in the Chicago area...I did the runway fashions for Gingiss. I saw the article online and thought, that can't be the Bill Brennan I knew, but it is! Best Wishes to you and Jim!!
Hi there! I think you guys are a really sweet and good-looking couple. Wishing you two all the best from Singapore!
CONGRATULATIONS!!! You both deserve much love and happiness!!!
Congrats! What a lovely story. I finally got a chance to see your entire site (Perez Hilton posted that you guys were getting married). P.S. you guys are very handsome!!
Its finally here, the big day. I hope you two have everything you want. Im SOO happy for you two. May your life be filled with joy & happiness! :-)
Today's THE day! :D From halfway round the world I'm wishing you both a happy wedding. Your story is an inspiration to me and as such I would be including you in my prayers. May you have a long and fruitful life together and may the joy you feel this day carry through any rough seas you might travel in the future. Best wishes... :D
Hopefully Illinois will legalise same sex marriage soon. I am from thousand miles away in Malaysia (Next to Singapore),my blessing to
both of you to live happily as married couple.How wonderful and lucky for both of you to meet each other and
get married in a glamourous and proud way.Wish both of you can raise 5 children at least ! :))
Well,tomorrow is the day...I'm so excited for the both of you. Jimmy, sweetheart, I love you and am so happy you have found the man of your dreams. Bill, I can immediately see why Jim fell for you. It seems you bring out the best in each other. I wish you both love,love,love!
Jimmy and Bill I can only wish the both of you many years of happiness. You both make a wonderful couple, and me and Danny want to tell you how happy we are to be a part of your big day on Sunday. We both love you so much.......
Congratulations to two great guys who will be even greater together... and thanks for including me in this amazing party. I'm coming armed with two cameras and lots of arm candy (i.e., Penny). can't wait. see you soon!
We're writing to you from the sun-filled Greek capital city.
You don't know us but your love story is so beautiful that we wanted to wish you all the very best for your wedding day and always.
With much love from Athens.
I'm so happy for you guys. You're such an inspiration to me. Have a long and happy life together.
Best Wishes to you both! I found your website on Towleroad and could not stop reading, watching, and listening to your beautiful site. Have a wonderful wedding, a beautiful life, and know that two friends from Dallas are raising a toast to you this weekend in sincere congratulations!
Congratulations on your big day. I hope you both are as happy as we are. Our 2nd wedding anniversary is 09/08/09 and it has been two years of ups and downs but we would never change anything. JIm and Bill, always remember to be there for each other and no matter how stressful life is, always look to each other for the love and encouragement to move on. May God bless both of you!
I happened upon your website purely by accident and was so captivated that I read every word and observed every picture. A love like yours is the love few people experience in their entire lives, and I wish you God's blessing as you embark on your new journey that undoubtedly will prove very difficult at times. I hope you hold true to your feelings now and never forget what flows through your hearts at the present. Trust me ... there will be NO ONE better. Don't go out and experiment. You are with who you are supposed to be with NOW. Hoping you are actually pronounced "forever partners" as the long hand of the clock is on its way UP to the 12, and not while it is on its way down to the 6. It's symbolic, an old wive's tale, but mysteriously powerful. Maybe you'll post pics after the big day? Much luck and God's graces to the "One" of you. :-)
Awesome story!! How warming to the heart to know that you could find your right path in life and then follow it with the right person! Congratulations on your wedding and wishing you all the best!
Jim and Bill, You two make a beautiful coulple. I hope you have many years of happiness. Best Wishes, and Congratulations!
Sending you all the warmth of my ALOHA! Your story is so inspirational and overwhelming. It is so nice to see that there a social networks out there that do good things!! I hope you will be singing something at the wedding to Bill, Jim :)
We both wish you nothing but the BEST!
Guys you are a true inspiration!!!! Craigie and I love this song too :) Pretty much everything we want to do, but can't for a number of reasons, is happening to you guys. Please cherish it. You two look amazing :)
I've been a fan of your work since the AI days and I just saw the article on your wedding on Towleroad. I'd like to join the chorus and offer my congratulations to you and Bill. May your lives be blessed and filled with joy forever.
Congrats Jim and Bill! I heard about your upcoming nuptials online and wanted to wish you guys all the best. The love between the two of you really shows in every picture. I hope my brother and his partner are able to have a fabulous (and legal) wedding one day. Enjoy your big day and treasure every moment.
Hello, I am Brazilian and I can not speak English but I'm wrong here even writing to congratulate you and say that this is the model we need for the society. I'm gay and I am very proud to have you as a model!
Be very happy! I wish all the best!!
Dear Jim & Bill
I hope life runs smooth to you guys. As we say down here in Brazil, i wish "a truck full of watermellons to you"... You deserve... Have a nice wedding! Cadu
Greetings from Newfoundland, Canada. Congratulations on your wedding! We wish you all the best for a wonderful life together. We can only hope that you will be as happy as we have been since we got married in 2003.
Jim, Mimi here, we spoke when you did an interview for NEXT magazine with Amnesia Sparkles back in NYC many years ago...remember biscuits and gravy! hey bud I just have to say you two are an adorable couple and I wish the very best on your beautiful day...I have found the love of my life as well and its just a majical and awesome thing and I wish you both nothing but the very best life has to offer and soon buddy very soon we will be able to LEGALLY marry...Hugs and Best!
I know you do not know me at all and you have never met me before. But both of you seem to be very genuine, loyal, trustworthy and honest with each other. From the word go, you have been in it for the long haul. You both have proved to each other that you deserve to be together, and i wish you the very best of luck.
Remember to always to be grateful for every little time that both of you share! I am not married, so i cannot advice you on anything about love, but from what i have read, you share heavenly love. May God bless both of you abundantly. Have a great day on your wedding....and don't forget to have fun.
When I found out the big news earlier today I was filled with the greatest amount of happiness you could ever imagine. I am in tears of joy right now going through the pictures and stories you have shared here with us. Your love is a shining example of how wonderful life truly is. I wish I could be there in person to congratulate the both of you but for now this will have to work & maybe next time you come this way I can treat you to a nice evening out. I would wish you both the very best in life but it seems you have already found that in each other so there is really no need to. So may I just wish you continued happiness for years to come & that all of your dreams together will continue to come true. Congratulations!
Wishing you both all the very best! Read about your wedding on Advocate.com tonight and had to visit your site. My partner and I will be together 15 years this February, and although we have never formally had a "ceremony" we feel like an old married couple! LOL! Every year that passes it just gets better and better. Wishing you many years of happiness together!
Jim & Bill:
We wish you a long life of love and happiness. May you be each other's best friend, lover, soul-mate and partner for life. Things will come and go but the love that you share with each other will last forever.
Our VERY sincere wishes for a long, lasting and rewarding life together.

This extravaganza is about to start... I am SO excited for you two! I am bringing my dancing shoes! See you soon!
What beautiful wedding plans. I wish you all of the happiness that life has to offer. Congratulations!
This whole website that you created is just a wonderful expression of what your love is, what real love is and what real love should be. I wish you a tenfold of good wishes for your life together, a commitment like no other, as you share your special dreams and you build your life together. May your family, your God and your loved ones share in your happiness forever.
Dear Jim and Bill,
I read about your wedding in the news. There is something so pure, unspoiled and innocent about your love. Reading your story, I felt uplifted. Your rare soulful qualities touched me deep. You show the world that soul mates indeed find each other. I never met you, but I'm so happy for you and want to wish you a lifetime of love and happiness. May your love shine bright. It is the light that brightens the world and ignites the hearts with love.
Congratulations! A wedding ceremony is something you'll never forget. After nineteen years, we were legally married in Beverly Hills in July 2008. Although our marriage is not recognized in Florida, it is in many other places. If you are ever in South Florida, please contact us. Again, congratulations and only the best for the two of you.
If your love is as beautiful as the two of you together, your life as one will be nothing but a string of breath taking memories. 100% from each partner is the key to successful love! Best wishes to two complete strangers. --Tampa, Florida
Your website is beautiful. I wish you guys a wonderful life together. It is nice to see two people so in Love with each other.
It was so great to read your story. Unexpected love is the best thing to find!
My partner and I (we also met because of the unexpected connection between the internet, email and my sarcastic sense of humor) got married in Southern California in 2003 after being together for 5 years and will celebrate 11 together in November. Gay marriage is not legal in California either but we, like you, don't care what anyone else says, we are married.
We now happily reside together in Northern Illinois and really cherish every memory of our wedding day, including the video montage that was made.
Enjoy your day and make it all that you want it to be.

from the little details to the bigger picture- this day is going to be a spectacular reflection of the both of you. cheers - may this time be the time you will be able to say that you love each other the least. xo.
It is easy to look around the world and see nothing but disappointment, sadness and tragedy. We do not live in easy times and sometimes I am overwhelmed by how much pain there is in the world. However, when I see Bill and Jim, I realized that it is love, simply pure love, that makes the world beautiful.
It is love that unites us and love that makes every day worth living. I cannot wait to raise my glass to the Bill & Jim and their love which changes the world.
Thank you both SO MUCH for allowing me to be a part of this very special day. I cannot wait for it all to unfold. It will be spectacular! xoxoxo
