I enjoy working with couples to plan the ceremony they most want. I specialize in meaningful, highly "personalized" ceremonies that can be traditional, trendy, religious or non-religious (secular). My goal is for you to have a wedding ceremony that you love and that reflects your personalities and relationship as well as one that others will fondly remember. I'm not your ordinary officiant, as my reviews help to demonstrate. :)

I'm available to meet multiple times to make sure your ceremony has the features and wording that means the most to you. I have a wide range of resources to help you choose your wording and features and I'm available via email/cell and text. In addition I work with LOCAL, State, Military and LONG DISTANCE couples from as far away as Europe to plan their weddings via SKYPE. Most couples prefer this method because of the privacy and ease of scheduling.

Please visit my website for a complete profile. I absolutely LOVE working with my wedding couples. I hope to hear from you, but book early since my calendar for spring, summer and fall always fills up early. Please include the date, location and venue of your wedding when contacting me. I do have associate ministers who I highly recommend if I'm booked on your wedding day. Read less

Wow!!!!! Rev Chris felt like a part of the family from the moment we met her. She has put all our worries at ease with her warm, funny personality. I have no doubt that she is the perfect choice to give us the meaningful ceremony of our dreams.

Reverend Chris is worth every penny! She makes sure to respond promptly to each couple, and she puts a TON of energy into making sure each ceremony is tailored to fit each couple. Her husband attended and even took photos on his own, which were uploaded to Facebook the SAME evening. Reverend Chris took a lot of the stress out of the planning and my husband and I received compliment after compliment about how beautiful the ceremony was. Would ask her again in a heartbeat!

Rev. Chris was very helpful and professional throughout the whole process. She helped us as we were planning the whole wedding ceremony and she was always there if we needed any questions answered. Finally, the wedding ceremony was amazing and all of her organizational skills came thtrough and every thing went smoothly and all of our guests also loved the ceremony. I would recommend Rev. Chris to anyone!

Having Rev Chris officiate our wedding was the best decisions my husband and I could have made. After speaking with over half a dozen reverends in the Madison area, we fell in love with her and haven't looked back since. She helped us immensely through the planning process, got to know our personalities and relationship so she could honest speak to who we are as a couple, and helped the day-of go smoothly. We wanted the ceremony to be a highlight of our wedding - we still get compliments to this day about how lovely and perfect it was. We are so happy to have crossed paths with Rev Chris and would recommend her to anyone in a heartbeat.

Maggie, what a truly thoughtful-thought filled review... I'm so touched and grateful... and so happy that you were pleased with your ceremony. I'd love to take all the credit but actually it's because of couples like you and Marc who participate so well in the planning that my ceremonies get so many compliments. Stay in touch, lovebirds... and be happy!!!

Book her! Rev in the absolute best! She took the time to really get to know us! The ceremony was so personal and so special and she let us pick all of the elements ourselves! Everyone was crying. It was so sweet. We got a ton of compliments on how nice our ceremony was and how our pastor was awesome! If you want a personal, meaningful ceremony-book Rev! She brings her husband Jack with her and he is just the sweetest! Loved him too! & he took a ton of great pictures which they sent to us the very next day! It was so great to get to see photos right away! Seriously worth it! And she's yours for the whole weekend! Rehearsal was great! So knowledgeable and professional!

Oh Maddie, what a wonderful review. Your wedding was spectacular... it was the first "brunch" wedding I've ever been to and I have to say "WOW". Your family and friends were so kind and generous with their compliments. You're right... everyone was bawling their eyes out! (In a good way!!!).... Keep in touch, lovebirds... and remember, I believe in you both.

Chris is absolutely the best! Me and my now husband got married in southern Wisconsin, but live in North Dakota, so I was nervous about planning our wedding from a distance. But Chris made the whole process a breeze! Also, she's super flexible. We first talked over the phone and then had several meetings over skype before meeting in person. From the get-go, Chris said we get to decide everything - and she meant it! She gave us several useful resources to give us ideas, but we were able to handpick everything: the vows, the readings, and everything else! We were even able to change some of the wording in our vows to make it more our style. She also added in several special elements! She acknowledged our grandparents during the ceremony and gave us "super secret" marriage advice. Our secret marriage advice was PERFECT and so special to us. My husband is a huge Star Wars fan and I am a huge Harry Potter fan so she took quotes from those and incorporated them into her message. How cool is that?! Everyone we talked to after the ceremony commented on how uniquely perfect our wedding ceremony was. Additionally, Chris coordinated our rehearsal the day before, met with the DJ and wedding coordinator before the ceremony, and mailed our marriage certificate for us. If you're looking for awesome officiant, look no further! Chris is absolutely wonderful!

Wow! What a great review!!! I SO LOVED WORKING with both of you on the personalized elements of your ceremony. It was as much fun for me too. I had one couple quiz me on whether I was accepting pastorships. LOL They were looking for someone upbeat for their home parish. Love that!!! Hugs to you both, lovebirds... and thank you SO much!

My now husband and I had no clue how to plan a wedding ceremony before we had contacted Chris. With Reverend Chris's help it was a breeze. She gave us a lot of options to choose from so that we could personalize our ceremony without having to do all the dirty work. Chris was very efficient and always on time for our skype meetings, even though I am sure she would have rather been lounging in her pool in Florida.
My husband and I can be shy people so being the center of attention during our ceremony could have been a disaster of a situation. It was quite the opposite with Reverand Chris making us both feel comfortable and keeping it lighthearted throughout.
We would recommend Chris for any kind of ceremony. She is very flexible, fun loving, and professional all at the same time.
