Pastor Mike went above and beyond to make this moment special for us. The ceremony was absolutely perfect. He took the time to get to know us beforehand and incorporated our story into the ceremony. It was moving and authentic. There were also a few touches of humor that made us feel at ease. Our friends/family told us repeatedly how much they enjoyed the ceremony. We are so grateful to him and would highly recommend his servicesSent on 10/24/2020

Truly the best!
This is an odd review to write, as we didn't end up having the dream wedding we spent months planning. We had planned to get married on April 11, 2020 at Desert Botanical Garden and were so looking forward to sharing the beautiful ceremony Pastor Mike wrote with our friends and family. . Ultimately, COVID-19 cancelled our planned wedding, but we proceeded with a small backyard ceremony. We were able to use pieces of the ceremony Pastor Mike wrote to help maintain the essence of the day we had been planning. He made us feel like we knew him our whole lives and we couldn't be more grateful for contributing to our special day, even if it wasn't under the originally planned circumstances.Sent on 04/21/2020
Chicagoland Wedding Pastor, Mike Lonchar, is phenomenal! He has an authentic and caring speaking voice, is compassionate towards couples, listens to what is most important to them and delivers on the wedding day. I am proud to refer Pastor Mike to our Chicagoland clients! -Tim
