What is your wedding ceremony style?

  1. Short & Sweet by a Professional
  2. You Want More Options, You Get More Planning
  3. The Wedding of Your Dreams! Includes Your Love Story & Expert Guidance

When you Zoom with Rev. Phil, he will help you figure your your style.

Like you, NETFLIX was searching for the best Chicago area officiant. They chose only one to do multiple weddings on LOVE IS BLIND -- Rev. Phil Landers!

He is the FIRST Chicago wedding officiant inducted into The Knot Hall of Fame! He has 510+ reviews here on WeddingWire,-- way more than any other offiiciant. Try to find a bad one (really).

Research him -- watch love story videos and read reviews. What he does is so extra-ordinary.

NEXT STEP: meet on Zoom for an free unhurried consultation. If your style is #3, he will get the beginning of your love story and share it back to you -- something no other officiant does.


COVID-19 update: some courthouse weddings have a 2 month wait, limit of 2 guests and require you to wear a mask at all times -- even your first kiss. Rev. Phil Landers is vaxxed,and boosted 5 times. He will show up quickly at your home, park, hotel lobby, etc. -- no masks required.

Rev. Phil works with couples who are NON-RELIGIOUS, single faith and interfaith. Although a real minister, he wants your ceremony to reflect you, not him. The complete script in advance (very rare) will prove it's just the way YOU want it.

He works with couples with the following religious backgrounds:

  • Baptist
  • Catholic
  • Episcopalian
  • Evangelical
  • Jewish
  • Lutheran
  • Methodist
  • Non-denominational Christian
  • Orthodox Christian
  • Presbyterian
  • Quaker

Personable Prepared Professional

Reverend Phil was recommended to us by our venue coordinator at The Seville in Streamwood Illinois. No better choice could have been made. From our first meeting with him over Zoom (so much easier with ours and his busy schedule and our having a toddler), we knew we were in good hands. His preparation was evident from the very start. He is meticulous in getting the details of your event (and your life!) correct, while maintaining a personal connection that makes you feel so at ease with the process. The meeting does take some time, but trust us, it is worth it when the day comes! He will drive you towards looking at what truly matters, your love for one another, and most importantly, that you convey your true feelings to each-other. Reverend Phil makes sure that every detail is included and that you have SO MANY less headaches the day of your event. He was our ceremony planner! We had a fantastic time and so did our guests. He is a wonderful presenter and had the whole crowd laughing throughout most of the ceremony. He is truly one of a kind and we were so lucky to be able to get him to participate in our wedding. Thank you Reverend Phil!

Professional with a unique & fun flair

Picking Rev Phil was an easy choice. He is the embodiment of professionalism and is easy to talk to. He provides great guidance throughout the process and the way he manages the day of the ceremony made the day less stressful...which is exactly what you will want on your wedding day. Rev Phil is not the cheapest officiant, but after our experience with him it was clear that he was worth every penny.

Rev. Phil is the BEST!

Rev. Phil was perfect! I wanted to surprise my wife on our 25th wedding anniversary by renewing our vows. With just a 2 day notice, Rev. Phil was extremely flexible, patient, accommodating, and just as focused as I was to pull off this surprise. He was key to helping us create a life long memory!
