Congratulations on your recent engagement!

There are many resources on this website to help you plan your wedding ceremony. Please “click” on any of the page links below to get some ideas. And of course, I’d like to be the minister (“wedding officiant”) you choose to help you get married! I have been an ordained minister for over 40 years, and have a 4-year degree (Bachelor of Arts) in religion from a prestigious religious college. I have performed almost 1,400 weddings in the greater Chicago area.    Rev. Daniel L. Harris, Wedding Officiant

About My Chicago Wedding Officiant Services

I can perform weddings and marriage ceremonies indoors or outdoors anywhere in the greater Chicago area and suburbs. I have married hundreds of couples in hotels, golf courses, country clubs, restaurants, boats, beaches, private homes, and even in a few churches!

Although my specialty is personal and custom ceremonies, I do have “traditional”, “non-denominational”, “inter-faith”, or short notice “civil” ceremonies available. Since many people ask, I perform weddings full-time (sometimes as many as 200 in one year), and am too busy to have my own church or parish.

I would be glad to meet with you and your fiancé to begin planning your big day! If you live outside the greater Chicago area, or have a really busy schedule, we can do a telephone and/or video interview instead of a meeting. But I prefer a personal meeting if possible.
