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. Rich believes it is "your Wedding," so he wants the ceremony to be about you and your style.

* Spanish and English

As one of Weddingwire's first Officiants, Pastor Rich is grateful for the privilege of teaming up with hundreds of Couples to create fun and meaningful wedding celebrations. He is appointed as a Liturgy and Worship Consultant in the Northern Illinois Conference of the United Methodist Church and also leads Assemblies and In-Services in Catholic and Public schools during the week. He received his undergraduate degree from Northwestern University and later obtained his Masters of Divinity degree from Trinity Divinity School.

Services Offered

Pastor Rich offers planning, rehearsals and Ceremonies, with email support during the entire planning process. As an Elder, (like a tenured Priest), he is fully licensed and will create custom ceremony elements with each couple. He is thankful for a wide variety of friendships, including persons who are religious, non-religious, multi-cultural, LGBTQi, multi-generational and various abilities, while collaborating on weddings with Rabbis, Pastors, Muslim and Hindu Priests along the way.

Packages:

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)

Basic: Wedding only, with your do-it-yourself preparation and some guidance from Pastor Rich ($500)

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.

    So, so happy!

    Pastor Rich was a perfect fit for our ceremony! He did a great job at making our short ceremony personal and the guests were blown away. He was so organized and efficient and our families and bridal party definitely felt that. Thank you so much for making our special day so memorable!

    A Beautiful Ceremony

    Despite traveling several hours to our outdoor wedding in 40 degree weather, Pastor Rich was so positive, vibrant, and personal throughout our entire ceremony. He was also extremely responsive to in-person meetings and email conversations, which was very comforting when planning such a big day. We highly recommend Pastor Rich to be a part of your special day!
