    Our Pine Manor All Day Elopement Wedding was Magical! My fiance' (Oops sorry... my wife) and I just wanted to share our special day together and not use up all of our savings on a big wedding. We pondered the idea of eloping on a cruise, or a destination wedding, but when we did the math they all ended up costing about as much as having a big wedding at home (not to mention the stress of planning it). We both agreed that we wanted to do more than a court house marriage... and then we found Rev Pam at Pine Manor! We absolutely love HER! She took such good care of us every step of the way. The flowers that Rev Pam put together were beautiful, the wedding cake was absolutely delicious (and adorable), the photographer (Demitri) was very professional and talented, and our violinist (Emily) was incredible. We knew it was going to be a special day for us, but we had no idea just how special it was going to be. Rev Pam's personal touch and adaptability was just remarkable. She made us as comfortable as possible, and kept the whole day as stress free as we could have possibly hoped for. We lucked out and the weather behaved for us just long enough for us to have our ceremony in her lovely yard. It was absolutely wonderful. We strongly recommend Rev Pam and Pine Manor for your wedding! We drove (60) miles to have our wedding there and it was well worth it! She has so many options for whatever it is you are looking for in your wedding. Good Luck

    We just had our wedding on Aug 26th and Pam was the ribbon that tied it all together! She was both our officiant and the day-of coordinator. We were so thankful that we hired her for both services! It worked out perfectly. She got in touch with all the vendors and things and people just showed up where they were supposed to be at the right time, just like magic!! It was so stress-free! Everyone wouldn't stop talking about how friendly the staff were and that included her staff! Pam is personable, approachable, flexible, unpretentious, warm-spirited and keen. What else do you need, really? If we had to do it again, we'd SO use her again!

    Rev. Pam is amazing! My husband is Jewish and I am Catholic. We wanted to ensure that our ceremony was meaningful - that it incorporated elements of both our backgrounds, but was unique and special. Rev. Pam helped create a totally special ceremony, one that included some traditional symbolism as well as some details we added to make it our own. We received so many compliments on how lovely the ceremony was! I never imaged having such a perfect, beautiful, special ceremony! No lulls, awkward silences. Pam really knows how to put on a good show. Highly, highly recommend Pam!

    Rev. Pam planned the most beautiful garden ceremony for my husband and I on 10.4.17. From officiating, to the cake and house wine, to the photos, to my bouquet.. and all the memories in-between! I cannot recommend her enough. Our wedding was everything we ever dreamed of. <3

    We had our Wedding on January 23, 2017. Rev. Pam was very helpful in getting everything set up for us. Very family friendly. The vows were perfect, the setting was perfect. She made our wedding day, for being planned at the last minute, she was very helpful. I would recommend her to anyone I know who is looking for an Officiant. She is just great!

    We wanted a small intimate setting outside of the courthouse, Pine Manor and Rev Pam was the right choice! We were very happy with everything that was provided with for us and it also took a lot of pressure of me to get things done, Rev Pam does it all and does a great job! Our family and friends said that everything was perfect and enjoyed everything about our special day! I highly recommend having your small wedding at Pine Manor

    We were married by Rev. Pam on 10/19/12. We wanted a small, intimate ceremony to include our immediate families. Rev Pam's home was perfect. She was so welcoming and accommodating and arranged everything. Her prices are very reasonable. Our thanks to Rev. Pam for her kind heart.

    We wanted a small and private ceremony so we travelled to Chicago to get married. We were utterly satisfied with our choice with Pine Manor. The whole experience exceeded our expectations and we were so glad that we chose chicago and chosed Rev Pam ( so yeah, in chicago, you can get married 24 hours after you get the marriage license so basically you can get it done within 2 days. Rev Pam was able to accommodate us in a very short notice). She was so lovely and very professional. She explained the procedure to us very clearly and executed it perfectly. We couldn't ask for a better wedding officiant. As far as we know, not many people in Illinois have gay marriage licenses and Rev Pam has it, so any couple (wink). She charges a very affordable rate. If you don't plan to spend big bucks on your wedding but you want it to be special and beautiful, and full of loving spirit, please go to Rev Pam. Her garden was gorgeous by the way. We sincerely recommend her to you. - EJ and Tim

    We had a wonderful experience at Pine Manor. The day was perfect and Rev. Pam made sure all of our needs were met. The place smelled amazing as soon as we walked in. She was very nice and accommodating. The ceremony was exactly how we wanted and afterwards Rev. Pam took some great pictures of us all. The pricing was great as well. I would definitely recommend Pine Manor to anyone looking to have a small and intimate wedding ceremony.

    Our wedding ceremony went off without a hiccup! The day was beautiful, the garden and home are as lovely as the pictures on the website. Rev. Pam is thoughtful & wanted to make our special day as we would want it, and more. I chose the weekly best rate package, and our cake was pretty to look at and yummy to eat! The flowers were cute too! We chose a handfasting ceremony---and Rev. Pam did not disappoint us with her work. I felt as though she understood us and our needs completely. I was able to pay entirely online, for the package, as well as the handfasting cord on Ebay through links on her website. I also downloaded our pics Rev. Pam took only a few hours after the service, and I was able to send them out to our loved ones. The house is quaint. Rev. Pam is fun and easy to work with. Parking is ample on the street, and the location is close to lovely downtown Mt. Prospect. We had time to grab a bite to eat up the street and make it to our ceremony on time!

    Rev. Pam helped make our special day extra meaningful. She was able to arrange everything in a short period of time so that we were able to get married on our 9th anniversary. She is so warm, thoughtful, helpful and made us and our guests feel very welcome in her lovely home. Her attention to detail is very evident in everything from the colors she asked the baker to incorporate for us, to the gorgeous floral arrangements she designed, to the goody bags she gave us, to her creative photography shots, and made us feel special. She's very flexible and was able to fulfill all of our requests. Thanks to Rev. Pam, our wedding was so much more than I thought it would be given the short amount of time we had to get everything in place. We highly recommend her and are SO glad we found her!

    Rev. Pam is the best she made our day so special. We wanted a small venue with a quick ceremony. Pam understood and walked us through every step. I was planning a garden wedding as her garden is amazing but we got stuck with rain on our day. Rev. Pam made my day when I saw she decorated the house with Sunflowers that matched my flowers! Rev Pam also made my bouquet it was exactly like the picture I sent her. Pam ordered our cake from Central Bakery and not only was it beautiful, it tasted great too! Moist and the banana filling was perfect. My husband was so impressed that the frosting was not fondant, that's how smooth the butter-cream looked! Rev. Pam is so sweet and made us feel at home, I would recommend her to anyone!

    Our Wedding was the best!! We wrote our own vows which Pam had us incorporate in the ceremony. I added a few prayers in the service and she made it all so smooth. She was sweet, friendly and very open to changes that took place here and there.. My kids and family were welcomed with open arms and this was simply the best place we could have picked. She was so accommodating and just a true gem! We are blessed that she runs the whole show and does so with ease and a smile! My flowers were BEAUTIFUL, she did an amazing job! The cake was beautiful and I only gave her minor details. She took a ton of photos and we had a blast. It was simple, elegant and amazing! The little keep sakes she gave were so sweet, glow in the dark bracelets that say Pine Manor, a coin keepsake, Just Married Magnets and all the signs with our name on it and the keepsake certificate, special touches!!! We will go back to renew vows in the future! Rev Pam, you rock!!!

    Pine Manor!
    Our wedding was beautiful, Rev.Pam took care of everything. She is the warmest most welcoming person I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. All of my guests states that our wedding at Pine Manor was the best wedding they have ever attended. The professionalism of Rev. Pam and her staff is top notch, you will feel like a VIP from the moment you arrive. Her all inclusive packages are awesome and I never thought I would be able to afford a dream wedding until I came across Rev. Pam and Pine Manor when i visited this site. No wedding stress at all, it was a wonderful experience. We plan to do it again in 5 years. The food was excellent, the cake was delicious and the band was awesome. You will feel like you are at home as soon as you knock on the door. Words cannot express the gratitude and joy we feel about Rev. Pam and our wedding celebration at Pine Manor.
