  • Ceremonies from the Heart - Rev. Rebecca Armstrong
    Your Wedding, Your Way !

    Congratulations on your engagement! I am a fully ordained, liberal minister and over the last 15 years have created more than 600 weddings -- Interfaith - Celtic - Humanist - Pagan - Renewal - Destination - Traditional -- for happy couples in greater Chicagoland. I offer special wedding packages if you are eloping, renewing vows, creating a public ceremony after being legally married, looking for a co-officiant, marrying after divorce, wanting to include your children in the ceremony, marrying in an unusual location, coming from abroad to be married in the U.S., and all sorts of other special circumstances.

    It is my promise to work with you both before and after the wedding to make your marriage the heaven on earth you believe it can be. To that end I offer pre-nup and post-nup counseling and Marriage Rescue to help you if the storm of crisis threatens to drown your hopes. I am a certified practitioner of the Prepare/Enrich Premarital Guidance Program.

    My years of work in mythology with the Joseph Campbell Foundation have made me deeply aware of the importance of ritual in human life. Thus, in every ceremony I create, I find just the right words and images to bring your essential truths to the surface and to celebrate the true uniqueness of your relationship while honoring the traditions that you hold dear.

    My graduate degrees from the University of Chicago Divinity School, the Unitarian seminary and Chicago Theological Seminary have prepared me to work with rigorous intellectual and spiritual honesty to do justice to this profoundly important event in your life.

    I look forward to making your wedding perfect for you -- unique, personalized, elegant, memorable and fun!

    Dear Rebecca ~ Let me tell you first that we had more compliments on you and the ceremony that you helped create than anything else about our wedding. I think that is the first and best thing a couple can hope to hear. Both of our father's spoke specifically of you, of how your warmth, expression of emotion and elocution helped bring the words out from the pages of the books and into the hearts of the family and friends that had gathered. I can't believe our good luck that we found you and that you were so creative and perceptive in your selection of the readings.

  • Weddings That Inspire - Rev. Marsha Thomas Chicago, South/Southwest Suburbs
    "Ceremonies that touch hearts and change lives!"

    Weddings That Inspire What is the most inspiring part of a wedding ceremony? Some might say it’s the music that pulls at your heartstrings, or the tenderness of the exchange of rings, or the romantic symbolism of the unity candle. And, while all these elements of a ceremony add to the beauty of the occasion, your wedding vows are the reason for the celebration! In fact, they are the most important words that will be spoken on your special day.

    Inspiring wedding vows have the power to “touch hearts and change lives!” For years to come, the heartfelt words you speak on your wedding day will remind you and your beloved of the promises you made to each other; and, your vows may very well move your guests to renew sacred promises that they have made!

    I love performing weddings and I would be honored to create your “perfect ceremony” and help make your wedding day one of the most meaningful and memorable days of your lives! Please call to schedule a no-obligation meeting with me so I can hear your love story and share in your excitement as you prepare for your special day. You deserve a wedding that inspires!

    "Dear Rev. Marsha, there are no words that we can say to truly express our appreciation to you for all that you did for us on our wedding day. The ceremony was truly beautiful and everything that we could have possibly wished for. It was such a celebration of love and joy and we have you to thank for that."

You can use many elements, few, or hardly any, and write your own service. Every couple is different. And every celebration should be, as well.

    "We wanted to thank you again! You made our day so special! Your style is so wonderful that you kept us smiling and hearing every word you said!
