Chicago Illinois Area Wedding Ceremony Locations

As a “wedding minister” or “wedding officiant” I have performed wedding ceremonies on location at almost all of the places named below, with a few scheduled for the future. When possible, the underlined names have hyperlinks to their own individual web sites. Just because a vendor is not on this list does not imply anything negative about them. I receive no referral fees from any of them. But I would appreciate it if you would tell them that you were referred by Rev. Daniel Harris. I also have a list of photographers, videographers, musicians, consultants, and other vendors on my wedding links page. To see an alphabetical list of these locations click here.

Note: Some hotels, resorts, and banquets halls are now making available a “preferred vendors” list. This is merely a list of wedding service people who have paid a fee to be recommended by them. They are not necessarily more qualified than others who not on their list. In fact, some of the vendors listed may be inexperienced, and are simply advertising to get exposure since they can’t give you many referrals. You should only hire an experienced professional who is recommended by someone you trust. I personally would not trust a “paid endorsement.” Rev. Harris has not paid to be on anybody’s “recommended vendor” list. Nor has any wedding location paid to be on the list below.
