About Michael Moody, Ordained Minister and Author

"A marriage is based upon a foundation of trust, faith, and commitment. Trust to keep you open and honest with each other. Faith in each other to allow you to overcome doubt and adversity. Perhaps most importantly, commitment to keep you true to the promises you make to each other today."

*****

Michael Moody, author of the self-improvement book Redefine Yourself: The Simple Guide to Happiness, serves as an ordained minister in Chicago and has performed several of his wedding ceremonies at the Rookery, Stan Mansion, Bridgeport Art Center, the Michelin-starred restaurant Spiaggia, and more! He recently was honored with the WeddingWire Couple's Choice Award for 2019 (the fourth consecutive year).

Michael's philosophy has evolved from a foundation of health, happiness, and mindfulness. His writings and speeches reflect the hope and inspiration of the people who surround him and the innate character of all beings. Michael believes that marriage will make each of you stronger so you will have the energy and passion to do things you might not choose to do alone.

Ultimately, Michael's holistic experience has helped him recently publish his book and serve as the Chicago officiant for many wedding ceremonies.

    Absolutely perfect!

    Our experience with Michael was absolutely perfect starting the moment we met him to when we said "I do." My fiance and I loved how personal Michael was and he took the time to get to know us. Our wedding was a magical day and we couldn't have done it without the help of Michael. Thank you so much! - Lexee and Laramy

    Amazing ceremony!

    Michael was great to work with from start to finish. He had asked us to complete a couples questionnaire that only helped make our ceremony even more personal. He was flexible, organized and professional throughout the process. Our ceremony was beautiful... thank you Michael.
    Sincerely,
    selby and ken

    Highly Recommended! Everyone thought he was part of the family!

    Michael is very prepared and customizes the ceremony speech to make it seem like he has known you for years! Multiple people asked if he was a family member. He was able to really connect with everyone in the room. When we first met with Michael, he has you each fill out a form that really helps him understand you as a couple and what you are looking to convey in your ceremony. He used some of the stories that we shared in this form in the ceremony service which provided exactly what we were looking for - a light-hearted and loving environment. He actually brought my husband to tears - which is rare! Michael was very helpful at our rehearsal as well and helped keep everyone on track so everyone knew what to do on the day of. All in all, we are so thankful that he was able to officiate our wedding and he did a fantastic job!

    Your wedding at the classic Knickerbocker Hotel was such a treat...especially during the holiday season! It was truly a magical experience, and a joy to have met your families! I wish the two of you a lifetime of love and happiness!
