47 Reviews | Westmont, IL
I am an interdenominational ordained and licensed minister. I have been officiating at weddings for over 18 years. I am well versed in the traditions of the various Christian denominations as well as other faiths. I am especially well-suited to work with couples who identify themselves as spiritual rather than religious. I became interested in becoming a minister who performs weddings after attending countless dull ceremonies for family and friends. I had this vision of a meaningful, inspiring, and moving wedding ceremony that was personal, uplifting, and lighthearted. So I began my mission to provide couples with their dream wedding. Nothing is more fulfilling than witnessing two people in love express their mutual devotion before their assembled family and friends. Over the past 20 years, I have married people from all walks of life. I have helped couples incorporate their individual beliefs, customs and preferences into their wedding ceremony.

Couples love my ceremonies as there are always magical moments, "happy tears" and lots of laughter! Let me use my flair for language to tell YOUR story, YOUR way! I don't just "show up" but deliver a unique, fun, heart-warming experience for every couple! www.chicagoweddingrites.com As a Wedding Officiant, I use everyday language and concepts that touch the heart and make everyone smile. My goal is to make you and your guests feel at ease, regardless of the setting you choose. Whether you want a private ceremony (JUST I DO) or a no-frills ceremony (KISS & PROMISE), or a more personal ceremony (SHORT & SWEET) or my top of the line ONE OF A KIND CEREMONY, I will provide the same care, personal attention, and professionalism. And whether you are looking for a traditional ceremony with a few light-hearted moments or a fun ceremony that will create outbursts of spontaneous laughter, I am ready and willing to work with you! I love working with couples from all faiths, as well as those without a faith tradition. With a PhD in Theology, I have an extensive repertoire of customs and traditions to draw on, especially as I have taught ritual at DePaul University, Columbia College, and other Chicago-area schools. I am a seasoned public speaker/ preacher/poet /storyteller and understand the importance of "stage presence" for a Wedding Officiant. My approach is warm, personal and engaging-- and I know how to handle any “disaster” that may happen during a ceremony with a dose of appropriate humor! (Take, for example, the case of the ring bearer who misplaced the rings, or the vows that blew away during a beach ceremony, or the dad who changed his mind about giving away the bride!) As a professional writer, I will use my flair for language to personalize your ceremony so that it reflects your beliefs, values, and culture. Together we will create YOUR Wedding Ceremony, so instead of having a stranger presiding over your most important day, you will have a friend and coach to be there in a supportive role. Whether you want to incorporate your pets, children, cultural background, faith traditions or hobbies, I will help you explore amazing options that you will not find in any wedding planning advice column (Take, for example, the airline pilots who processed out of the ceremony space to a barrage of paper planes, made airborne by their guests; or the marathon runners who jogged out in their running shoes, to Chariots of Fire or the couple who requested that we stop for a Selfie right after the exchange of vows!) On the other hand, some of my favorite weddings have included Chinese ceremonies, a blend of Hindu/African American traditions and even a short, formal ceremony delivered in Shakespearean English! Some exciting news is that I am now working with a translator who can translate "live" into Spanish or German while I am officiating in English. For details about Antonio Illescas' background in languages, please visit my website. A Board Certified Life Coach, I also offer optional relationship coaching -- if you have a great relationship, why not make it even better? Please contact me to explore a multitude of options!

I have performed over 1,500 weddings in more than 200 locations all around the greater Chicago area. I can perform weddings and marriage ceremonies indoors or outdoors anywhere in the greater Chicago area and suburbs. I have married hundreds of couples in hotels, golf courses, country clubs, restaurants, boats, beaches, private homes, and even in a few churches! Although my specialty is personal and custom ceremonies, I do have “traditional”, “non-denominational”, “inter-faith”, or short notice “civil” ceremonies available. Since many people ask, I perform weddings full-time (sometimes over 100 in one year), and take part in the music ministry at my church on Sunday mornings. I would be glad to meet with you and your fiancé to begin planning your big day! If you live outside the greater Chicago area, or have a really busy schedule, we can do a telephone and/or video interview instead of a meeting. But I prefer a personal meeting if possible. For more information, please visit my website - www.chicagomarriage.com. Please contact me and you will receive a free ebook called "Tips for Planning Your Wedding Ceremony." It includes details regarding choosing your wedding officiant, the overall structure of the ceremony, example readings/vows and exchanging of rings samples. The book has helped many other brides so far, and regardless of whether or not we work together, it might help you too!
