About Dr. Elizabeth-Anne Stewart

About Dr. Elizabeth-Anne Stewart

Based in downtown Chicago, Illinois, Dr. Elizabeth-Anne Stewart is a top-rated professional Officiant/ Board-Certified Life Coach who has performed hundreds of wedding ceremonies in the Chicago area and beyond. A seasoned public speaker, preacher, and writer, she crafts ceremonies that include magical moments, laughter and happy tears, delivering an experience that reflects each couple’s beliefs, values, and personalities. Couples love Elizabeth's ceremonies as her presence is personal, professional and fun. Whether couples select a One of a Kind Ceremony or a Short & Sweet Ceremony, Elizabeth's goal is to help them celebrate Life and Love with solemnity, romance, moments of tenderness, and light-hearted playfulness. An interesting fact is that she has just been named as one of the Top 10 wedding officiants in Chicago; you can read the article here: https://www.weddingrule.com/wedding-officiants/illinois/chicago/

Elizabeth works with couples of all faiths or those without a faith tradition; using everyday language and concepts that touch the heart, incorporating each couple’s love story and ideas into the ceremony script, with a dose of appropriate humor and a touch of British class! In 2017, Dr. Stewart was inducted into The Knot's Hall of Fame as one of the top 2% of wedding vendors across America; she has been awarded both WeddingWire's Couple's Choice Award and The Knot's Best of Weddings Award for the last 8 consecutive years.

Services Offered

Dr. Stewart offers a range of ceremonies to suit every budget and circumstance, from simple Elopements to lavish One of a Kind ceremonies, from regally traditional weddings to weddings that incorporate pop-cultural elements. Her main ceremonies are:

1. the One of Kind Ceremony which is completely customized from beginning to end and can include the couple's love story. The possibilities for this type of ceremony are endless. It is best suited for couples who are looking for an absolutely unique ceremony and for those who want to incorporate special themes, inter-faith rituals, cultural elements, and blended families.

2. the Short and Sweet Ceremony which provides a series of options from which the couple can select their preferences. This ceremony feels personal but doesn't have the degree of customization that a One of a Kind Ceremony offers. It is best suited for couples who may prefer a low profile during their ceremony or for those who would rather leave planning up to the Officiant than participate more fully in the process.

A Board-Certified Coach/ ICF Professional Certified Coach, Elizabeth also offers optional Marriage Coaching before and after couples tie the knot. She also offers bi-lingual ceremonies with the assistance of a translator (Spanish and German) and is usually available for wedding rehearsals.

    Convenient, affordable, safe, and surprisingly romantic virtual elopement

    If you told us a year ago, that we would be ecstatic to be married over Zoom, it would be a really great joke! To say the least, COVID-19 has made for an interesting time to get married. Our December date for our destination wedding turned out to very optimistic and was rescheduled.
    Although all the planning for the dream wedding turned out to be futile, we still wanted to move forward with our lifelong commitment on our anniversary in 2021. After scrambling for weeks to find ANY venue during tier 3 mitigations (including all the county courthouses!!!), we leaned into the idea of a Zoom wedding about a week before. While we contacted many officiants, Dr. Stewart was the most responsive, easiest to talk to, straightforward, and was not overselling.
    Honestly, we thought we wanted to "just make it official," but so grateful we did not do a courthouse wedding. Dr. Stewart sent a worksheet and incorporated it into a beautiful script. Honestly, it inspired us to see it as a celebration, not a legal transaction. Reflecting on our journey before the ceremony galvanized us to make the most of it.
    After our long saga, we were married in our backyard next to the firepit, snow, and in the presence of our dog virtually! It felt like Dr. Stewart knew us, our struggle, and was right there to support us in our journey to married life. Also a plus, free recording over Zoom! Thank you so much for making this the easiest and nicest experience during the pandemic!

    Dr. Elizabeth-Anne Stewart's reply:

    I'm so happy that the Zoom wedding worked out and that it was a special experience for the two of you. The setting was lovely though I was quite happy to be inside while you braved the cold, along with your fearless canine companion. Thank you for inviting me to celebrate with you!

    Thank you, Alexie. I'm so glad you were able to go ahead with the wedding, in spite of COVID. Everything turned out beautifully and having the ceremony "on deck" just made everything so much safer for everyone! Congrats to you and Alex!

    Thank you so much, Carmen! I know the Elopement wasn't what you had in mind originally but it was still a beautiful celebration! I am delighted that our "by the river" venue and the weather all cooperated to make the day memorable!
