2 weeks ago we had our wedding with Reverand Bob. He was excellent. We were able to tailor our ceremony to what we would like said with what levels of religion we wanted. He drove all the way to our apartment in Orland Park to meet with us, so that really helped us during wedding planning. We were given an extensive booklet to look at, and were also able to choose what he would be wearing for the ceremony. He was on time, courteous, and spoke with emotion and kindness. He made the crowd laugh, and when little things like the ring bearer running in the opposite direction happened, he made a little joke and all was ok. I would highly recommend Hearts and Hands to any couple.

We used Rev. Bob for our wedding on July 3rd, 2014 at Cafe Brauer at Lincoln Park Zoo. Having never been married before we really had no idea what to do when organizing a ceremony. Thankfully Bob's experienced hand guided us through the whole process.

Neither myself or my wife are religious so Bob was very helpful in organizing a humanist ceremony for us. It was fun, sincere and felt very appropriate. All our guests enjoyed Rev. Bob's delivery.

I would highly recommend Rev. Bob to anyone who is looking for a genuine and friendly officiant for their wedding.

We're from out of town, Rev.Bob was the first we talked to on phone, and we decided him to be our wedding officiant after our first talk, he's very patient and thoughtful, we can always feel that he really cares about us and our wedding, he wanted our wedding to be perfect, he reminded us of what we neglected and listened to our ideas. He arrived even half an hour earlier than the time we aggreed on to run the rehearsal with the bridal party. We heard a lot of good words about our ceremony.

We were referred to Rev Bob from my co-worker and we never met with any other officiant. From the beginning we felt incredibly comfortable with Rev Bob and knew he was just a kind man wanting nothing but the best for each couple. The company provides each couple with a book of ceremonies where you can pick and choose whatever you like, you can even change up sentences--the sky is the limit. After we had our selections picked, Rev Bob added information about us to make our ceremony even more unique. He is such a genuine man and accepts every religion, culture, etc.

We have gotten so many compliments on our ceremony and how great he was! I wish we could get married every year so we could work with him time and time again!!

My fiance and I were not sure where to start when interviewing officiants. We looked on this site and many others to get ideas. Then we had to dive into the process and meet with people we thought would match our idea of a non-demonational wedding. Rev. Bob came to our house and we immediately felt a connection with him. He sent us a book of ideas - readings, passages, transitions - and we were able to create our own wedding ceremony. Rev. Bob came back to our house to meet us again, get to know us more, and go over details of the day. He then created the most thoughtful and "true-to-us" ceremony. Every guest either asked how long we had known him (less than a year) and commented how the entire ceremony was so "us". He did an amazing job of weaving who we were into the ceremony, letting us have some say in the details, and helping us writing our own vows which brought a tear and a smile to everyone in the audience. I cannot say enough about his prompt responses to our questions, his service before and the day of the wedding, and the connection we made with Rev. Bob. If you are looking for professionalism and knowledge of weddings - Rev. Bob is your choice!!

I would rate this vendor 10+. Quality, responsiveness, professionalism and value is a 10. Looked at other officiants and decided on Rev Bob because of his down to earth and sincere attitude. In spite of unforseen happenings on our end prior to the wedding, his flexibility was a 10+. Very helpful in planning the ceremony and dealing with the nervous bride and groom.

Received many, many positive comments of the ceremony and Rev Bob from guests. Would highly recommend this officiant.

Hey Bob! We wanted to thank you so much for marrying us on 08.27.11 - you were a blast to work with. I really loved that you took control and explained to our entire bridal party what they needed to do and where they needed to be before the ceremony since we opted to not have a rehersal. Everything worked out perfectly and we really enjoyed our ceremony. Thank you for giving us the flexibility to create our ceremony and also write our own vows (which everyone loved), as well as not judging us for the type of "ring box" we used. You and your assistant were both amazing and we appreciate the time and effort you put into our ceremony and thank you for not making us feel like we were just another client as some vendors do. You truly catered to our needs and we are so greatful! -Rob & Jackie

Top notch service!!! Rev. Bob was so much fun to work with! A great personality and so much fun to plan with.

He was responsive to all my emails and if he couldn't answer questions right away, he consistently would give me a timeframe when he would email back and/or call and he was always on point.

Many people said that our ceremony was so touching and made them cry and that was the handiwork of this great person.

You will not be disappointed!

It's never easy to find a minister that makes you feel they know you as a couple,but we found exactly that with Rev Bob. We had a special layout for our ceremony for him as well as words, vows, and prayers that he granted our wishes from start to finish without question. He organized, provided us guidance when we needed, and lead us through seamlessly! We couldn't have expected more. Certainly Hearstandhands can handle any type of ceremony you wish. Right down to the ceremonial Robe choices. Highly recommend. Thank you Rev. Bob for a beautiful memory.

Neither my husband or I belonged to a church so were at a loss when it came to looking for an officiant. We found Hearts and Hands Wedding Officiants online and were immediately impressed by the amount of time and attention they devoted to us. Rev. Bob and Rev. Dave provided us not only with a level of comfort, but also with their wealth of knowledge and experience. They worked with us to create the ceremony we wanted, and provided us with the guidance and materials we needed. Rev. Dave showed up early for both the rehearsal and the ceremony, and was very patient with our large group. Rev. Dave's personality and sense of humor put everyone at ease and made for a memorable ceremony that everyone enjoyed.
