Pastor Rob was just what I was looking for in an officiant. He was communicative, punctual, engaging, and responsive. He offered suggestions and let us pick how we wanted to style our ceremony. I am very happy we chose him to officiate our wedding! We ended up doing three different ceremonial customs including one cultural custom and he was very flexible with merging them into the main ceremony. I highly recommend him and hope to hire him again for our vow renewals on our anniversary! Additional info: we got married November 5th, 2021 and I’m finally getting around to giving Pastor Rob the credit he deserves. Look no further!

Details: Wedding • Interfaith • 51 - 100 guests • Help writing vows will be needed • English • Officiant will be needed at the rehearsal • Date and time has not yet been chosen

Pastor Rob was perfect! We were left without an officiant two weeks before our wedding and I was completely panicked. I found Pastor Rob and I’m so thankful I did. He was available, responsive, took his time to get to know my husband and me (even in such a short amount of time) and made our day absolutely perfect.

Details: Wedding • Non-denominational (mentions God) • 20 guests or fewer • Help writing vows will not be needed • English • Officiant will not be needed at the rehearsal • Officiant does not need to be present at rehearsal

Pastor Doug was the perfect officiant for our daughter's wedding. We met with him over Zoom a couple times and he made sure that our daughter and son-in-law had the exact ceremony they wanted and it was tailored to their personalities. I would highly recommend Pastor Doug. Thanks for making their ceremony perfect. And if you ordered the perfect weather - thanks for that, too! :-)

We are so blessed to have had Rob as our officiant! He was so patient and accommodating despite our wedding day also being a crazy weather day resulting in a last minute change in plans. Our ceremony was short, sweet, and just perfect for us. It was just what we wanted. Such a special moment in a last minute unique location lol and Rob’s positive energy was just what we needed. Thank you!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I have 3 wedding packages I offer vary depending upon whether or not you want me to be involved with your rehearsal, and how much consultation you’re looking for. Packages start at $350.00. Please visit my website or contact me for additional pricing.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Initial Consultation After you’ve chosen the package that best suits your needs, the initial consultation is the next step. It can be face-to-face, a conference call, or a video chat. Typically I meet with the couple over coffee, talk about the ceremony and learn a bit about you and your relationship. This helps me to personalize your ceremony so that it fits your style and personality. After the initial consultation, I ask that you submit a $100 non-refundable deposit within a week , if you decide you'd like me to reserve your wedding date. The Planning Meeting The planning meeting is our opportunity to get acquainted better. I take notes, as this is my chance to prepare for your wedding and to hear the story of your relationship. This either takes place in-person or on the phone, depending on the package you have chosen. In the planning meeting, we will spend at least an hour together to get to know one another and plan out your ceremony. After the planning meeting, I am available for follow up questions or any concerns you may have. Typically, there is an ongoing conversation of emails between our first face-to-face meeting and your wedding. I look forward to helping make your big day special.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I am an ordained Lutheran pastor and currently serve at Faith Lutheran Church in Aurora, Il. I have been in the ministry for 26 years and have performed over 300 weddings.
