At Reverend by Request, this is our mission, as well as our profession. We are not part time ministers performing weddings on the weekend as a hobby; we are full-time ministers who have performed hundreds of weddings, vow renewals, and baptisms over the years.

We provide many different types of wedding ceremonies, so you can choose to have a traditional or non-traditional wedding, a non-denominational wedding, an inter-faith wedding, a civil ceremony or you may choose to elope.

For more information about our services, or to reserve your wedding officiant and wedding minister in Chicago, call Reverend by Request today. We look forward to helping make your special day be a joyous and memorable celebration!
