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.
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. Pastor Rich believes in marriage equality and has a non-discrimination policy, on all levels.
