Welcome and Congratulations!

Whether you are celebrating a new marriage or the baptism of your child, Reverend by Request is here to offer our services. We specialize in Weddings, Baptisms, and Vow Renewal Ceremonies in the Chicago, Illinois area.

As ministers and professional wedding officiants in the chicago area, we have had the pleasure of helping couples create a beautiful and memorable wedding ceremony. We have a variety of packages available to help you create the wedding of your dreams. We’ll take the time to get to know your personal tastes and help you customize the ceremony to fit your wishes.

We enable you to choose from a variety of different types of ceremonies. We are open to traditional or non-traditional weddings, inter-faith weddings, or civil ceremonies. In addition, we are non-denominational meaning that we warmly accept any religious affiliation.

We are also proud to offer our services for Baptisms. Whether it’s a new baby, or you are an adult who is in the process of changing faiths, we are happy to help you with your Baptism Ceremony in Chicago and the surrounding Suburbs.

At Reverend by Request, it is our mission to provide you with the best celebration ceremony possible. We are full time ministers who have made it our life’s work to help you create these special moments. Over the years we have performed hundreds of Weddings, Baptisms, and Vow Renewals.
