I have performed over 1,400 weddings in more than 200 locations all around the greater Chicago area. I can perform weddings and marriage ceremonies indoors or outdoors anywhere in the greater Chicago area and suburbs. I have married hundreds of couples in hotels, golf courses, country clubs, restaurants, boats, beaches, private homes, and even in a few churches!

Although my specialty is personal and custom ceremonies, I do have “traditional”, “non-denominational”, “inter-faith”, or short notice “civil” ceremonies available. Since many people ask, I perform weddings full-time (sometimes as many as 200 in one year), and am too busy to have my own church or parish.

I would be glad to meet with you and your fiancé to begin planning your big day! If you live outside the greater Chicago area, or have a really busy schedule, we can do a telephone and/or video interview instead of a meeting. But I prefer a personal meeting if possible.

For more information, please visit my website - www.chicagomarriage.com.

Please contact me and you will receive a free ebook called "Tips for Planning Your Wedding Ceremony." It includes details regarding choosing your wedding officiant, the overall structure of the ceremony, example readings/vows and exchanging of rings samples. The book has helped dozens of brides to date, and regardless of if we work together or not, it might help you too! Read less

Rev. Daniel Harris was a great officiant to work with. He had some great ideas for the wedding ceremony and a wide variety of vows and readings to choose from - or you could find your own vows and readings. He was friendly and always reachable via email. Our marriage license was sent in right away and he had a copy to us by the day after our wedding.

Unfortunately, he was unable to attend our rehearsal due to a last minute wedding he booked but he did send a replacement to fill in for him and everything went smoothly on our wedding day.

In my agreement with each couple, I promise to provide a person to conduct the rehearsal. And I have never yet failed to provide a qualified person. So far in 2016, there have only been 2 occasions where I could not conduct the rehearsal myself. And in each case, the couple set their rehearsal first without making sure I was available to be there. But again, every couple has always had a rehearsal with a competent person conducting it, 99% of the time being me.

Rev. Dan did a brilliant job with our wedding ceremony. Coming over from the UK to get married in Chicago meant that all of the planning had to be done via email, but Rev. Dan did everything he could to help our special day go smoothly. I especially liked his attention to detail when it came to personalising our vows.

We would highly recommend him to any one looking for a wedding officiant.

It is always difficult to plan a wedding long distance. But this couple were a delight to work with. They really took advantage of all the resources I provided to them via email, so they could create their own meaningful wedding ceremony. We had a short meeting just the day before to go over the last-minute details, and then everything was smooth and fun during their ceremony.

We loved working with Reverend Daniel Harris! Everything was organized and flawlessly executed. Rev. Dan was quick to respond to emails from the day we first contacted him up until the night before the wedding. I loved the personalization of our ceremony. Everything is detailed on his website to choose which package you are looking for. He then performed a FaceTime interview with us since we weren't living in the Chicagoland area. I loved how we were able to pick out our own verses and vows with guidance from himself and his website. Two weeks prior to the wedding, Rev. Dan sends us the exact outline of the ceremony, so there are no surprises! I loved this because I have attended a couple weddings where the Bride and Groom were embarrassed with something they didn't know would be said. Rev. Dan worked with us to attend the rehearsal and completely took charge. He gave a bunch of tips on how the bridal party should look when standing up i.e. where to hold flowers, how to place hands... He was very thorough and took his job very seriously. We appreciated the orderliness because we got so many compliments after the ceremony. Not only was he professional, but he was fun. You can tell he loves doing this and we loved working with him!

This couple were great to work with. From start to finish we were able to pick out the readings and vows and anything else that was important to them. And I know it is vital that the spotlight of the ceremony be on the couple, so all their family and friends can rejoice with them on this happy occasion.

He made everything seen easy, with no stress and spectacular!!! My husband and I would most definitely recommend him to anyone who is looking for a stress free ceremony.
we were really glad that he could join us for our reception as well and have some fun and get some delicious food after a long day.
He is just as amazing as a Officiant as he is as a person.

Couldnt be more happier!!!

What a very nice couple! It was rewarding to work with them. They appreciated the personal and customized wedding ceremony we designed together for them. Some couples have unrealistic expectations. But they focused on what is really important, marrying their best friend, and celebrating that happy event with their friends and family.
