About Pastor Rich

Pastor Rich is a bi-lingual* wedding Officiant located in Park Ridge, serving the entire Midwest region. He is committed to serving all couples and families without discrimination and he is fun, calm and super-dependable.

He received his undergraduate degree from Northwestern University and later obtained his Masters of Divinity degree from Trinity Divinity School.

Premium Service: Planning Meeting (in person or virtual), Rehearsal, unlimited e-consultation and your Wedding! ($750)

Mid-Range: Planning Meeting and Wedding ($700) or a Rehearsal and your Wedding ($700)

If your wedding is 90 minutes or more from Park Ridge and you'd like an overnight rehearsal, Pastor Rich asks that you please consider offering some basic Motel accomodations.

    Wedding with Pastor Rich

    Pastor Rich was amazing. All our guests in our multi cultural wedding agreed that his ceremony was the highlight of the event. He was relaxed, kept a steady pace, was humble and confident. He explained everything carefully so the entire group was following on the significance of the various sections of the wedding. Before before and after the wedding, Pastor Rich was within reach and prepared really well for us. He listened to us carefully and respected all our wishes.

    Kind, friendly, attentive, and he feels like family. Wants to get every detail right.

    Out of all the Pastors out there, my wife and I really believe that we made the right choice. Upon meeting him for the first time he greeted us with a warm hug and treats you like family. He's kind and very attentive to details when explaining what we wanted exactly for the wedding. Our wedding day came out so perfectly with Pastor Rich and he was early to our venue so as to not be late. We highly recommend Pastor Rich to anyone out there looking for a good officiant. Our wedding was non-denominational since my wife is Muslim and I'm Catholic. He chose the best of both of our sides and put on one great ceremony we will never forget :)
