  • Do you perform custom weddings?

    Absolutely, when you meet with an Officiant on Demand representative, you will have an opportunity to express the details of the kind of day you want.  We will work with you to plan your wedding day and incorporate traditional and modern themes and additions. Some of the popular additions are Unity Cups, Candles and Ribbons, Sand Ceremony, Jumping the Broom and Handfasting.

  • Do you only perform church weddings and how far will you travel?

    ​No, we will come to the location that you specify. It is not uncommon to have a ceremony at a home, public park, banquet hall, at sea, hotel or private rental home. We try to accomodate all wedding, especially those in a 99 mile range of the 60440 zip code, However in addition io Illinois we will travel to the surrounding states of Indiana, Michigan and Wisconsin.

  • Do you provide pre-marrital counseling?

    No, we do not, but we do recommend that the couple purchase Saving Your Marriage Before it Starts. Along with the workbooks (His & Hers) they provide the best counseling we have come upon to date.

  • Should I have a rehearsal and will an Officiant attend?

    It depends on how many attendants you will have in the ceremony.  As a rule, if you are planning a small wedding, no rehearsal is needed.  However, when the wedding party is large then rehearsal is recommended. Rehearsals should take place 3-12 days before the big event.  If we are not able to attend your rehearsal, a detailed personalized guide will be sent to you and your wedding planner to follow.

  • Do you perform LGBT ceremonies?

    Of course.  We believe in marriage equality. In addition, we perform multi-cultural, interfaith, non-denominational, spiritual, religious and non-religious unions.  It's is your day, your way. Click the link to check the laws of your state.
