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.
She 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.
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.

Unique and meaningful union
Upon searching for an officiant for our non-traditional, and spiritual ceremony, Elizabeth was perfect. She extended herself to fit within our short lead time, and provided us with a unique ceremony, that was the cornerstone of our union and celebration. By encouraging us to take the time to tell our story, it lead to the most heartfelt ceremony. It included the details that our family and friends would later tell us they never knew; and it helped them feel closer to us, and happy to be a part of our celebration. The joy definitely carried through the night.Sent on 10/21/2019
In addition to her desire to create the right story, Elizabeth was also always quick to respond, delightful to speak with, and professional. She also offered much guidance in areas that we had no idea would be important.
We would highly recommend Elizabeth for anyone looking to create a unique, and meaningful union!
Dr. Elizabeth-Anne Stewart's reply:Your story truly became the centerpiece of your ceremony -- I'm so glad we took the time to explore what was going on in your lives when you met and how your two lives became inter-twined. I so enjoyed being "the Keeper of the Story," the "Teller of the Tale" -- what a sacred responsibility!

Dr. Elizabeth-Anne Stewart is a wonderful wedding officiant! We highly recommend her to all brides and grooms who want a truly memorable ceremony.
I've been fortunate to work with Dr. Elizabeth-Anne Stewart on a number of weddings over the past few years. When a couple tells me they have hired her, I'm always glad to hear it. Dr. Stewart understands both the liturgical/ritual necessities for a wedding and also the performative aspects. The wedding she officiates are always well-thought-out and heartfelt. She is always at the top of my list when I recommend officiants.
Dr. Elizabeth-Anne Stewart is fabulous. Very personable and the perfect person to officiate your wedding! -Bill Tempelaar-Lietz Oak Mill Bakery Sales Manager
