We were fortunate to have Reverand Jim, the "Rent-A-Rev", as our wedding officiant. Initially, we we looking for a judge or wedding officiant that could "get the job done" at a lower cost but we quickly came to realize that you indeed get what you (are willing to) pay for. While other officiants were more than capable of marrying us, Reverend Jim met with us for over an hour at a local hotel a few months prior to our wedding. He asked us questions and took the time to know us, our families, and how we met. Once we decided to enlist his services, he was easy to reach and responsive. He also checked in a week before the wedding to make sure everything was on track for the ceremony. On our wedding day, Reverend Jim was incredible with family and friends. He tailored the ceremony to us and made us feel at ease. He's a great public speaker and had our guests laughing and crying. It's obvious that Reverend Jim is passionate about his work as he comes across as a genuine, compassionate individual. We are happy to say he was a part of our wedding and will fondly remember his contribution.

Back when I was 9 years old, I saw Rev. Jim marry my cousin. In the moments of her vows, she got emotional, and really started to loose it. Jim picked up on this immediately, and made a joke mid vows that made her laugh, and lighten the mood for everyone. I immediately knew Jim would someday marry me. And just last week, he did! Besides being a very close family friend, he sat down and chatted with my fiance and I for over an hour, got to know us, and made our ceremony amazingly personal. The most complements I got all day at my wedding was how amazing our Reverend was. And I couldn't agree more. Thank you Jim, you melted all of my nerves away! We love you!

Jim was the officiant at our wedding in St. Charles. He's a regular guy who can relate to anybody, and he exudes warmth and happiness. He worked closely with us paying careful attention to how we wanted the service to be - somewhat religious but not too much, casual but with some tradition, joyous and memorable for all. Jim delivered it all.

I think he can step into different versions of his role for people with different goals. From the comments to the vows to his attire, he worked with us to create the right tone for the wedding. During our consult, he took copious notes and incorporated the things we told into the service. He caught me off guard during the service with some humorous musings and it was just right for the feel we were looking for.

Now we want Jim to be our neighbor! :)

I couldn't have asked for a better officiant for our September 2013 wedding! We wanted a ceremony that was short and sweet but also meaningful... and we got that and so much more!
I found Reverend Rehnberg through wedding websites, emailed him, and he called me within hours. At our meeting with the Reverend, we felt like we had known each other for years. He was very easy to talk to and we had some good laughs too! Since we met with him months prior to our wedding, he was great about "checking in" with us up until our big day.
Our ceremony was funny, personal and unique! Our guest were shocked to find out that we had only known Reverend Rehnberg for a few short months... they thought he was a family friend! EVERYONE was commenting on how great our ceremony was at our reception!
We thought that his cost was very reasonable! We had met with other officiants that were MUCH more expensive and wanted to charge us extra to PERSONALIZE our ceremony.. um, excuse me, but it's OUR wedding ceremony, shouldn't it be personalized? Reverend Rehnberg never treated us like a "business deal" and get this, his one cost included a personalized ceremony!! During our ceremony, he talked about how we met and even let us use our own vows!
I can't say enough good things about Reverend Jim Rehnberg! He's a great man and will absolutely make your ceremony unforgettable!
Thanks again Reverend!!

My new husband and I cannot be any happier about our decision to hire Rev Jim as our wedding officiant on Sep 8 2013. We connected with Rev Jim immediately, as he welcomed us into his home and spent time getting to know us individually and as a couple. Our ceremony was the perfect length and was both sentimental and funny. He personalized everything. As the bride, I felt at ease as Rev Jim queued everybody throughout the ceremony and kept the whole process smooth. We have received many compliments regarding our ceremony, thanks to Rev Jim, and we would recommend him to anybody!

Rev. Rehnberg is amazing! When we were looking for an officiant for our wedding, Rev. Rehnberg was recommended to us. We arranged a meeting with him and met at his home. It was a very comfortable atmosphere. He made us feel right at home. He asked us questions about our relationship but really, it just felt like conversation with an old friend or family member. Afterwords, he assured us that there is no commitment yet and he encouraged us to look around to find the right fit. We told him that there was no need to look around, we would be honored to have him officiate us. During the course of our wedding planning, he kept in touch via phone and email to ask us how the wedding planning is going. He even asked us how our pets and family were. The day before the wedding, someone from his faculty ran the rehearsal. She was very professional and the wedding ran exactly how she explained it. The day of, Rev. Rehnberg made our wedding so very personable. It was a perfect combination of love, compassion, and humor. Everyone at our wedding kept telling us how it was the best wedding they've ever been to and how amazing that the reverend included so many personal things about us. Our wedding was perfect, all because of Rev. Rehnberg!

At the beginning of the wedding planning, I wasn't sure how I felt about finding someone to marry me over the internet, but as neither my husband nor I belonged to a church, it was what I had to work with.

Rev. Jim put all our fears to rest from the second we sat down with him on our very first meeting, which was over a full year before the wedding. Between that first meeting and the big day, Rev. Jim would call periodically to keep in touch, and every time we talked it was like speaking with an old friend. He even came to our apartment the week before the wedding to go over some last minute details, which helped us out a lot because it was the week before the wedding and I had a lot of work left to do.

Our ceremony was everything I wanted it to be; heartfelt, Christian without being overbearingly religious, funny, and, most importantly, personal. Rev. Jim used all the knowledge he'd built up over the time before the wedding and made what could have been a fake sounding ceremony into something incredibly personal and touching. He joked about our jobs, mentioned our cat, and in general just did a really great job at keeping the energy and atmosphere up during the ceremony. I had people come up to me afterwards who just assumed I went to church regularly and had known Rev. Jim for years because of how well he seemed to know us.

I would highly recommend Rev. Jim to anyone who doesn't want a cookie-cutter ceremony. He did a wonderful job making us feel like we were the only people on his schedule and was instrumental in making our wedding that much more personal and special.

Reverend Rehnberg officiated for our wedding which included families that were Jewish and catholic. We were concerned when planning our wedding to make everyone feel comfortable even though we were not doing either a traditional Jewish or catholic ceremony. I was very confident that Jim would be able to do this and he exceeded my expectations. We still felt like we had a spiritual wedding without offending either group, and received many compliments on the ceremony from guests. I felt like he really made the ceremony about us and what we wanted without pressuring us into doing any traditions that we did not want.

Everyone thought that we had known him for years, when in fact we had only known him for about 9 months. He really takes time to get to know you and includes very special points in your ceremony. We were so impressed and would recommend him to anyone in a heartbeat.

Reverend Jim performed a 50 yr vow renewal ceremony for my in-laws this summer. From the moment I met him I knew he was going to make this a very special occasion. He met with them to learn more about them and spoke to me about who they were as a couple, as in-laws, as grandparents. He did a fantastic job of making it personal, touching, funny and very memorable. I would highly recommend Reverend Jim and look forward to having him officiate at my sons weddings in the future!

This was our 50th wedding anniversary and our children put it all on. My husband and I talked to Rent-a- rev Rehnberg and my husband was adamant that the service should not be religious, long or tear-jerking. I must say he did an excellent job. A little bit of religion, lots of fun little tidbits he had picked up on, when interviewing us and most important to my husband, short (15 to 20 min). I think most everyone at our party enjoyed this part of the evening.

As soon as we left our initial meeting with Jim, we loved him! He sat down with us and asked us about ourselves and our relationship together. He seemed to honestly be interested in the details of our lives. We met with a few more officiants, and each time we left them we did not like them because we compared them to Jim. After making our decision, we couldnt be happier! The ceremony was absolutely perfect. It was romantic and funny at the same time, which reflects the personality of my hubby and me. After the ceremony, people could not stop talking about him! People are still telling me how great he was! We are so grateful that he was the officiant for our special day!

Reverend Rehnberg is amazing!!! We met him for the first time at a wedding show in Chicago. One of our big concerns about hiring someone where we had no history was that the ceremony would feel impersonal and bland. This could not have been further from the truth. The ceremony was above and beyond anything we could have ever hoped for. It was heartfelt, funny, upbeat… it was perfect. We knew he would do a good job, but we were absolutely blown away. He exceeded every expectation we had. Rev Rehnberg is an extremely captivating speaker who does not read from a script. He took details from our meetings and masterfully worked them into the ceremony. It felt like he had known us our entire lives, and there was not a moment where he was not smiling. Guests were coming up to us all night talking about what a wonderful job he did. We truly could not have been happier with Rev Rehnberg.

My husband and I were so thrilled with Reverend Jim at our ceremony! Leading up to our big day we were so busy but Jim was accommodating and spoke with us through the phone to get to know us and help us plan our big day. On the day of, he was so calm that it made me calm down leading up to walking down the aisle! The way Jim spoke about us to our family and friends was so beautiful. People were coming up to us all night commenting on how wonderful he was and asking how long we had known him. It was like we had known him for years even though it was just a few months! That just shows how personable and gifted he is at his craft. We loved working with him and you will too! He is worth every penny and we will be recommending him to all of our friends in the future who will be getting married. He will make your guests laugh, cry, and be overjoyed at your ceremony. He was one of the best decisions I made for my wedding day! Thanks Reverend Jim!

We did our premarital counseling with him as well and he offered us such great support and insight as we went through the journey of wedding planning. At our ceremony he was so personable and had our guests crying tears of happiness and laughing! He was serious at the perfect moments and comical at the right times. Several of our guests said that when they get married they will be contacting him!

Jim was great. He took the time to get to know us and spoke with us several times before our wedding to calm our nerves. He is very funny and keep everyone in attendance on their toes and entertained. Jim's a great guy and made our day memorable and special.

Rev. Jim is the perfect officiant. He gets to know you as a couple enough to personalize your ceremony. He blends the serious and the silly into the ceremony, which personally I needed. At our wedding, when I was saying my vows, I was having trouble speaking I was crying so much lol so Rev. Jim said "For richer or richer" to get me to laugh ^-^ It gave me a few moments to collect myself so I could speak, and I really appreciated that he realized I was having trouble lol. And it was a fun moment. He was also really great for us since my husband and I have really different faith backgrounds. He's perfect for couples who need help blending faiths together ^-^

Rev. Jim WAS expensive FOR us... We are a budget couple, but... I am so glad we splurged on him! Our ceremony was outside.. And it did start to rain... Since it rained, we agreed on no chairs for our guests... Which, on the day of, freaked me out.. BUT, Rev. Jim took advantage of that and made our ceremony sooo intimate and fun! He was absolutely phenomenal and I was crying, laughing, smiling, you name it! Rev. Jim made our wedding soo personal! When we first met with him, we spoke for about two hours! We were just so comfortable with him! And he USED what we spoke about that night in our ceremony! I'm so glad we have it on film because it was so touching for us... Who doesn't love things personalized?? We HIGHLY recommend Rev. Jim! He is WELL WORTH IT!

I feel sort of funny rating a reverend, but he did an amazing job. My husband and I are very strong in our faith and were devestated when our church turned us down because we lived together. We thought we would never find someone to make our ceremony what we wanted that we felt comfortable with. We felt like this is one of the biggest parts of our wedding. As soon as we talked with Reverend Jim we knew he was the right person. He spoke with both of us on the phone and we had great conversations about our wedding and our faith. He then met with us together to talk about the ceremony and get to know. He called throughout our engagement to keep in contact and always emailed back and forth very promptly. Our rehearsal was amazing. He was funny and down to earth and make everyone feel light hearted and comfortable. People that were not even of the same faith as us were saying how great he was. He truly made our ceremony special and it sounded as if he had been our pastor for 20 years. We will always remember our ceremony and what a great job he did. It was very special and memorable to us thanks to Reverend Jim!!

He also took everything we told him about how we met and what we said about eachother and made the ceremony VERY personal. It was like he'd known us for years. He made our ceremony funny and very memorable.

Rev. Jim is incredible! I recently attended a wedding with another "rental rev" type minister....while his service was nice, it was very simple. Rev Jim performed our ceremony and it was funny and VERY personal. He met with us for about an hour in the few weeks before our wedding at which time he asked us a few questions. All of our answers were incorporated into the service. Our guests were talking about our service for weeks following our ceremony! And most importantly, we had a great time! Thank you Rev Jim for a memorable wedding day!!

Rev. Rehnberg is exactly what we were looking for in an officiant for our wedding. He is flexible, letting us choose what elements we wanted in our ceremony. He was also able to incorporate a few readings that I wanted in the ceremony without missing a beat. He provided humor when it was appropriate, and was serious when that was appropriate. He was definitely a joy to work with and I would recommend him to anyone who doesn't have their own pastor (and even those who do!) to officiate.

I am Pagan and my husband is Christian Druid...our families are Catholic and Christian. We were worried about having a ceremony that would celebrate our beliefs and would also be accepted by our families. Rev. Jim Rehnberg was amazing with that. Our vows were "truth" vows, and not your typical vows. They were very special to us. He performed a ceremony that both was exactly what we wanted spiritually, and comfortable for our families to attend! I would recommend him to ANYONE!

Reverend Jim was our officiant on our Sept 15 2013 garden wedding. We wanted an intimate ceremony and Rev Jim did just that and more. He met with us a year prior and spent hours to get to know us. I think that's what makes him different frm the others- he does not only go through the motions- he really cares about the couple that he marries and wants to give them a personal ceremony that they will remember for the rest of their lives. He also patiently guides and walks you through the entire ceremony process so you know exactly what to do. We feel blessed that we had Rev Jim as our officiant and we would highly recommend him to our family and friends. Thank you Rev Jim! - Loren and Angelica

I could not be more thrilled with the ceremony Rev. Jim delivered at our wedding. His words were meaningful, personal, sarcastic, romantic, wonderful and most importantly - memorable! My husband and I were looking for someone who would be able to offer us a ceremony that was non-religious, and even though Rev. Jim offers his ceremony services for any level of religious inclusion, he tailored our ceremony to focus on love and listened to my every request. He was easy to get in touch with, work with, and say the right things to calm my nerves. We met with him once several months before our ceremony and I was apprehensive at how well he would be able to get to know my husband and I in that one session, but the apprehension was for nothing. I have never heard a more personal ceremony in my life. It made us laugh and cry with inside jokes and special touches. Thank you so much for giving us the ceremony that was even better then my high expectations!

Reverend Jim was totally awesome! He officiated at my daughter's wedding and I made it a point to officiate at mine too. He was everything I could have hoped for at our wedding and, if we renew our vows, we shall ask him to officiate over that too!

A simply lovely man!

What a joy it was to have Reverend Jim Rehnberg perform our wedding. With him comes a wealth of knowledge and ideas for preparing your ceremony. We enjoyed very much getting to know him and his wife as he diligently did his “work” in getting to know us and what we wanted.

Jim was eager to get to know us personally, which was wonderful as he brought that knowledge into play by making our ceremony unique and special to us. He was very easy to work with, and he brought humor and an infectious smile to everyone in our party.

We had a great experience with the Reverend. Coming from religious families, some family members were skeptical. Reverend Rehnberg won them over easily after the rehearsal and we received so many kind comments after the ceremony. After a bee unexpectedly joined our ceremony, Reverend Rehnberg did a great job of improvising and including that guest in the ceremony. He was also a great confidant as my mom passed away 4 months before the ceremony. He helped myself and my dad to work through how we would make it through the ceremony. We are forever grateful for his guidance during such a difficult time. He also helped us compose our wedding program, and our marriage license was waiting for us when we got back from our honeymoon. His promtness and professionalism were exactly what we needed and were looking for. I would recommend Reverend Rehnberg to anyone who wants a fun, happy wedding ceremony.

Rent-a-Rev provided terrific officiant service for our wedding. Rev. Jim is extremely personable and friendly and very easy to talk with. He took the time to understand our values and beliefs and incorporated them into our ceremony. Since we came from different religious beliefs, my husband and I thought it was going to be difficult to find the right person. But Rev Jim was a great match and our guests loved the ceremony. We highly recommend their services to all couples!

Best officiant we could have found to be non-denominational. He made our wedding to be our wedding and not like everyone else out there. He personalizes your wedding for you and your husband or wife to be. He takes the time to get to know you and your family and I could not have asked for any one better then Rev. Jim!!!

Reverend Jim was wonderful! We met with him once for about two hours and then I kept in touch with him up until the wedding. He definitely worked hard to customize our ceremony for us. Since we are of different faiths, he allowed us to incorporate some elements of both our religions. He made us laugh throughout the ceremony, but also made us cry. We received numerous compliments about him throughout the night.

Reverend Rehnberg produced a wonderful ceremony! He gave the whole event a very great atmosphere, gave people a few good (not corny) laughs, and handled everything so smoothly when the wind wouldn't allow our unity candle to light! Although he was about 5 minutes late to the ceremony, and then seemed to have to rush off immediately afterward, I barely noticed that (I was in the limo beforehand so didn't even realize he was late until I was told later) and the most important part was that he performed a great & personalized ceremony. He has a great personality, too, so he is a fun guy to talk with and even more fun to hear him speak! At the initial consultation he did quote us one price and then sent us an invoice for a different price, which he immediately corrected when we pointed it out. He had an assistant run our rehearsal, and while I wish it would have been him there to run it (my brother - the ceremony musician - had lots of questions about when to start playing various songs), Mary (the assistant) did a great job of running the rehearsal, and then she was even sweet enough to show up at the actual ceremony and make sure everything was running smoothly. Thanks, Jim!
