We had Rev. Jim officiate our wedding on 12/17 at Hotel Arista in Naperville. From the first meeting, Rev. Jim was wonderful to work with. He really took the time to get to know us as both individuals and as a couple. The ceremony he put together was perfect. it was so personal, funny, and heart-warming. All of our family and guests couldn't stop talking about how great Rev. Jim was Over a month later and people are still talking about Rev. Jim and the ceremony! He truly made it memorable. I highly recommend Rev. Jim to anyone getting married.

Not convinced? Think about it, the one thing that is an absolute necessity for a wedding is an officiant to marry you. You don't necessarily need the flowers, fancy dinner, music, or all the extras, but you do need an officiant! Therefore, it is the most important part of the wedding. Hire the best. Hire Rev. Jim!!!

Our ceremony could not have been any more perfect, thanks to Rev. Jim. What a pleasure it was to work with him - from the moment we decided we wanted him to officiate our wedding, to the actual wedding day, Jim was there to answer our questions and continually guide us in the right direction. He has such a loving heart and soul, and that really comes out in his endeavors to get to know a couple before he marries them. He took the time to get to know all about us, and used what he learned to craft one of the most beautiful ceremonies I've heard.
He is so full of recommendations on vendors throughout the Chicagoland area, and he knew and had worked with many of our vendors before (which made things MUCH easier!).
Jim worded our ceremony so beautifully, and so emotionally - he was able to bring so much love and emotion, yet he kept things lighthearted and fun. He captured the relationship between me and my husband so perfectly.
If you have the opportunity, PLEASE consider recording your ceremony with Rev. Jim! That is the only thing that we wish we would've done differently - we'd love to have that little reminder of the beautiful words Jim had to say about us.
Our guests were floored by how wonderful the ceremony was - we received so many complements on him, and his ability to really dig into your emotions, and still keep things lighthearted.
We are so happy we were able to share our fairytale wedding with Jim!

Reverend Jim was amazing from the first time we talked on the phone, through the months leading up to our wedding, and spectacular on our big day. We received so much positive feedback from our guests on how personable he was during our ceremony! We are very pleased with Jim and couldn't have asked for anyone better! You can't go wrong with Rent-A-Rev!

Rev. Jim was the very best and did the most beautiful job performing our ceremony! Everybody came up to me and said it was the best ceremony they have been to! He made it feel like he knew us forever and was the perfect balance of fun and serious. When he saw me getting emotional he quickly added humor to lighten it and bring me back so I didn't completely lose it! Couldn't have been happier with him! Will definitely recommend him!

Rev. Jim is absolutely amazing! He performed our wedding ceremony at Trump Hotel in Chicago (May 2016). Several guests commented on how touching, wonderful, romantic, and witty his speech was. We were extremely happy with our choice of the wedding officiant! (You don't want to get married in the courthouse, believe me!)

Rev. Jim met with us prior to the ceremony to discuss options (i.e. order of appearances, content, unity cup etc) and made us feel very comfortable.

I can not say enough great things about Reverend Jim. Everything was so touching, I didn't want the ceremony to end, I can't believe how customized and heartfelt Reverend Jim made the ceremony. I had several guest ask me which church he presided over because they wanted to hear his sermon. Reverend Jim made the ceremony interesting and funny I had tears of joy and laughter, I absolutely loved Reverend Jim.

Rev. Jim was a pleasure to work with from beginning to end. He took the time to get to know us by meeting with us twice. We incorporated many different aspects to our ceremony as we had the freedom to do so since it wasn't being held in a church. Rev. Jim asked many questions of both of us and as a couple. He tied all his information nicely together for the ceremony.

The ceremony was just the right amount of time which had a little laughter and some blessings throughout. It was personal and heart warming and he even gave the guests permission to laugh. As something so special doesn't have to be so serious all the time. Our vows we left up to Rev. Jim and he advised us to write vows to each other in a less stressful environment and occasion which I thought was great advice.

The rates of Rev. Jim were perfect as he truly takes the time to personalize the ceremony. I would take a moment and get in touch with Rev. Jim as it will be a customized ceremony just for you both.

Rev. Jim is such an amazing man! He was absolutely wonderful throughout the wedding process. We met with him at his home during the beginning of our planning about a year ago and got to know him. As we got closer to the wedding, he would check in regularly to see how we were doing. He always answered questions quickly via phone or email, as well! He made the ceremony so special. It was as if he'd known us for many years. I really can't say enough about how wonderful of a job he did. He's also NOT the type that you'll never talk to again once your wedding is done. We both felt like he genuinely cared about us and the journey we have begun together. Thank you so much, Jim!

I am not a fan of being the center of attention, so I was most nervous about the ceremony. However, Rev. Rehnberg lead the ceremony in such a way that it was the perfect mix of light/fun and deep/romantic, and I truly only focused on his words and my groom. The part I was most nervous about turned out to be my favorite part of the day! I was kept at ease the entire time (initial phone conversation, meetings, rehearsal, and, most importantly, the ceremony). He added the perfect personal touches to his words that made the ceremony specific to us but also general enough that everyone could relate. I received many compliments on the ceremony, and it was obvious everyone loved him! Thank you, Rev. Rehnberg, for making my wedding ceremony so beautiful and memorable!
