Congratulations on your upcoming wedding!

If you are like many engaged couples, finding the right minister to partner with is more challenging than you thought. I'd like to take that difficulty away by partnering with you on such an important day! Once we chat, I know you will be 100% confident and comfortable to move forward with the ceremony planning.

I love helping couples start off right by performing weddings and marriage ceremonies in the greater Chicagoland metro area. Whether your wedding ceremony is in a church, a hotel, golf course, country club, restaurant, boat, beach, private home, or museum, I can help make it fun, personal and meaningful! I take the time to provide personal and custom ceremonies, as well as "traditional", "non-denominational" ceremonies. I look forward to hearing from you soon,

Pastor Bill Yaccino


How can I find the right pastor / minister / officiant?

It starts by finding someone you like. Someone you can relate to. Someone you can envision standing in front of your family and friends and helping you celebrate a very significant event. I am experienced, personal, professional and eager to help you do just that. Once you chat with me on the phone, you will be 110% comfortable and confident in taking the next steps.

What is the next step in planning?

I am eager to meet with you and your fiancé to begin planning your big day! Most couples prefer a face-to-face meeting if possible so that we can get to know each other better and feel comfortable moving ahead.

What if the pastor is not available on my wedding day?

In the event Pastor Bill is not available to partenr with you on your big day, he will personally do the work for you by referring you to the pastors that are available on that day. You don't have to call 15 others! The Chicago pastors he partners with are personal, professional, and will help you and you family plan a wedding ceremony that is fun , memorable and meaningful. Visit Pastor Bill Yaccino's website.

What if we live out of state?

If you live outside Chicagoland, or have a busy schedule, we can do a telephone interview or Skype meeting instead of an in person meeting.

What is the ceremony like?

Many couples today don't want a "generic" ceremony, one that looks and sounds like everyone else's. Based on our discussions, your ceremony will be uniquely yours by being completely personalized and customized. We include some of the high points of your own story – which honors you and your family, and gives your guests a peek into your relationship so they can celebrate fully with you. We only share those highlights that you choose that are fun, meaningful, and memorable. We'd be honored to serve you as the minister / wedding officiant on one of the most important days of your lives. !

About Pastor BIll Yaccino:

I have been in full-time pastoral ministry (church work) for 25 years, and have a Masters degrees in theology and in business. I have performed nearly 1000 weddings and would love to help you celebrate on your big day! I do not perform weddings full time, like many you find on the Internet. I am a full-time minister who does weddings, not a full-time wedding minister – big difference! I only perform a marriage ceremony if I know I can be fully present for the couple on their wedding day and the important weeks and months leading up to it! Couples I serve seem to appreciate the fact that weddings are merely a part of the ministry I offer, and that my passion is helping couples form strong, lasting marriages! Beyond that, I am a very “normal” guy who relates well with couples and their families.

Preparing for marriage:

Although I do not require it, I highly recommend investing in ways that will help you build a strong, intimate and lasting marriage. Contact me to inquire about Couples Coaching (Preparing for Marriage) or visit www.SYMBIS.COM for links to great resources you can complete on your own.

Once again, I look forward to hearing from you and partnering with you on such an important day!

Planning an out of state wedding can be very stressful! After looking through reviews, my husband and I decided to go with Pastor Bill Martinez and we are so blessed that we made that choice! He was very professional and maintained in contact throughout the planning process. Thank you again for such a beautiful ceremony. You're the best!
