How does it work?


Your MINISTER OF LOVE is available to perform weddings with as little as 3-hours notice on the same day of the ceremony.


However, whether you call us on the day of your wedding or contact us months in advance, your Officiant / Celebrant will always arrive to perform your ceremony 30-minutes early to help keep brides, grooms, and wedding guests in great spirits. 

How much notice do you need?


Once we are retained, your wedding or unity ceremony will be placed on our events calendar.


Next, you will be contacted via email and phone by your MINISTER OF LOVE, who will confirm the details regarding your wedding and briefly interview the couple.


On the day of the event, the MINISTER OF LOVE serving as your Officiate / Celebrant will arrive 30-minutes early to help quell jitters among wedding party and spread a spirit of celebration and joy among wedding attendees. 


At the start of  your ceremony, your Officiate's friendly and professional demeanor will bring the perfect amount of joy and solemnity to the occasion that will solidify the legality of your union.


Upon completion of your ceremony, the Officiate will sign in  the appropriated place on the marriage licence you and your spouse previously signed so the newlyweds may file the license with the Cook County Clerk and marriage certificate(s) may be ordered.  Please allow up to two weeks for the County Clerk to process and mail your marriage certificate(s).  

What happens?


We cannot guarantee that everything that happens to you on the day of your wedding, or during the event itself, will be perfect or picturesque. Nevertheless, your MINISTER OF LOVE does guarantee that your willingness to work out life's problems with the one you love will be confirmed before your Officiate and guests during your "Exchange of Vows," and your Officiate will legally acknowledge your wedding took place by affixing her signature to your current marriage license so you may apply for your copy of the official marriage certificate.
