About the Reverends
At Reverend by Request, this is our mission, as well as our profession. We are not part time ministers performing weddings on the weekend as a hobby; we are Full-time Ministers who have performed hundreds of Weddings, Vow Renewals, and Baptisms over the years.
We provide many different types of wedding ceremonies, so you can choose to have a traditional or non-traditional wedding, a non-denominational wedding, an inter-faith wedding, a civil ceremony or you may choose to elope.
I am an Ordained Minister and truly love to work with people. Even as a child I wanted to be involved in the church. I was an Altar Boy in a Chicago Parish from age 7 and performed my duties well into my teens. As a child I also attended Cub Scouts and worked my way up to an Eagle Scout.
I so much enjoy being a Minister because it combines what I love to do – interacting with children and adults, supporting and counseling people, creative writing, public speaking and having the power to transform engaged couples into husband and wife as well as blessing a child or adult through a Baptism.
I have also found that one of my greatest talents is organization and detail. I’ve enjoyed organizing my home and office, and now I have directed this talent into helping couples fine tune their special days. We offer couples our services for their Rehearsal and Wedding as a Coordinator. Many are grateful because they have found that we are able to do what they couldn’t.
When I am not acting in a Ministerial role, I usually spend my down time volunteering at or attending Church; watching a comedy or cooking show on TV, and spending time with family and friends.
