Rev. Brad was truly a highlight to our day. Not only did he help in making everything run so smoothly, but he truly made the most important part of the day so memorable. He added such a personalized touch by sharing our story, included our loved ones in the event, and even had elements of surprise. My guests couldn't stop asking about Brad during our reception. In fact, they still reference some of the things they remember Brad saying about our love story months later. I would definitely recommend Brad.

Kary! What a blessing to have such a beautiful wedding on your very own property! Truly a warm and memorable day! :) Congratulations to you both!

Reverend Brad was an absolute joy to work with! We were in a total pinch because we didn't have a wedding officiant and our wedding was only a few months away. Someone recommended Brad to us and he was more than accommodating to our tight schedule. He spent hours meeting with us to get to know us, our "love story", and just about everything in between. The planning meeting was so worth it because his service during our wedding was far better than we could have hoped for! Our guests absolutely loved him and he made sure to keep them involved throughout the entire ceremony. He made the ceremony about our story and it is a day we will not soon forget thanks to Brad! Alex & Ashley W.

Ashley! You and Alex were a joy to serve! You are an adorable and humble couple in every way. Your outdoor ceremony at Starved Rock was truly intimate and inspiring! Enjoy being Mrs. W.! :)

Reverend Brad did a phenomenal job as the officiant of our wedding yesterday! We had over 50 guests tell us it was the best ceremony they have ever been to. He did an amazing job telling our audience our story and you would have thought he knew us for our entire life with the way he told it. We had our dream ceremony in large part because of Brad. We will be recommending him to everyone we know. Thank you for making our day so special!

Will! Thank you for the kind words! It was truly an honor to officiate your big day. It was you and your story that made it so special. Congratulations!! -Brad

Working with Brad was so great. We got married in Chicago, but my husband and I live in AZ, so all planning had to be done remotely. Initially, we planned on a quick Sykpe meet-and-greet, but then I had major issues with my Skype. Brad stuck with us throughout it all (my husband was on a business trip and had separately SKYPED in). After about an hour of troubleshooting, we finally were able to set up a three-way Skype, and it was great! Brad was flexible with our vision for our ceremony. We wanted a spiritual, though not necessarily religious, ceremony, and Brad was respectful of our wishes.

The rest of our planning was completed via email, and it was a relatively easy process. Brad was helpful in providing us a complete script of the ceremony about a week before our wedding, which was easy to read and put to rest a lot of our pre-wedding anxiety. Additionally, he provided us some helpful documents and information to share with our wedding party during the rehearsal (we had a quick, nontraditional rehearsal due to restrictions at our venue) and we chose the officiant package that did not include Brad for the rehearsal dinner.

For the ceremony, Brad gave us the option as to how we wanted him to dress. My guests are still talking about the beautiful ceremony and all of the memorable, beautiful things Brad said about us, love, and marriage. After the wedding, Brad not only mailed in our certificate for us, but he scanned and emailed a copy of it to us the day after (so that we could submit it to our insurance prior to the honeymoon).

Thanks so much for the kind words, Meghan. The Adler Planetarium was a wonderful venue for such a beautiful ceremony. Can't wait to see the photos! May you live happily ever after!

Reverend Brad was absolutely the best person to officiate our wedding! My husband and I have a very unique story that neither of us had really fully shared with all of our friends and family. The love story that Brad inserts into his ceremony script helped us bring our story to life as we said I do. We wanted a ceremony that was truly a celebration, we wanted it laid back and fun. Brad was able to do just that. How often to wedding guests share that the ceremony was their favorite part of your wedding?!?! Our guests are still talking about Rev Brad and how amazing he was! Brad, thank you for creating a ceremony that was exactly what we wanted, and thank you for helping us start the rest of our lives together with nothing but laughs and love!

You are too kind Brittney! What a wonderfully authentic and fun couple you are. I'm so glad the ceremony was a reflection of you! Enjoy being "perfectly weird" together! ;) -Brad
