I am an ordained, interfaith (meaning I respect all religious beliefs, barring harmful contemplations) minister with experience in the Chicagoland area available for "you choose the venue" wedding ceremonies, baptisms, baby blessings, memorial and ash-spreading services, and home blessings. I enjoy being a bridge and alternative option between "the church" and "the courthouse" for those who might find that useful. I specialize in personalized ceremonies, but I have many "ready-to-go" ceremonies too, depending on your needs. Any special request will be considered. It''s your day. I''ll help you keep it that way. You can also visit my website, www.RevForWhatev.com to learn much more about me and my services.

Rev. Anne was so amazing to work with for my wedding! My husband and I searched all over for someone who would provide a loving and beautiful secular ceremony without making us feel awkward about it. We Skyped Rev. Anne from out of state and instantly knew she was perfect for us. Rev. Anne is friendly, professional, and flexible. She sent us a wedding ceremony draft and we edited it with her by email a few months before the wedding, and we made final adjustments about a week beforehand. The first day we actually met her was at the rehearsal, but we felt like we'd already known her for a long time. The ceremony itself was beautiful, and a ton of our guests (even the very religious ones) commented that her delivery was spectacular. I would recommend her to anyone.

After our ceremony, we greeted each of our guests individually as they entered the reception. They ALL said the same thing to us: "What a beautiful, meaningful ceremony! It was so "you"!" Many of them asked us how we knew Rev Anne Styx, and were completely shocked when we said we actually didn't know her at all. The ceremony was just so personal and heartfelt, it seemed as if The Rev was an old friend of ours. We planned our entire wedding long-distance, so pretty much all of our communications with The Rev were via email. It worked out wonderfully. Anytime we had an idea or suggestion for our ceremony, she responded quickly and enthusiastically. It didn't take long at all to nail down the final wording for our ceremony. It was beautiful on paper, but even more incredible when we finally experienced it on our wedding day. You simply can't go wrong with The Rev for Whatev. She is awesome!

Rev. Anne was amazing. She made me and my wife extremely comfortable during our rehearsal and kept me calm while my wife and the bridesmaids were late due to traffic. Our wedding ceremony was beautiful! We kept in contact through email which she responded to in a timely manner. She took into consideration my wife's daughter who wanted to be a part of the ceremony and even let her read her own vows (that idea was brought up the day of the wedding). I can't give enough thanks to Rev. Anne for helping make our wedding day beautiful.

Anne was really great at being flexible with our wedding ceremony. She really does cater to whatever you are looking for. We wanted a very simple vow ceremony and she had sample outlines for us to look at and talk through to decide what we were looking for. She has a checklist that helps you discuss with your soon-to-be your ideal ceremony (i.e. how you would prefer her to dress- formal/informal, religion, prayers, songs, quotes, ceremony practices such as a unity candle or sand, and so forth). We picked parts from a few of her outlines and put a little flair of our own personalities in. Since we live far away, we set up Skype sessions to discuss our ideal ceremony. She also agreed to stay to do a before dinner prayer. She was overly friendly and very professional.

Rev. Anne kicked butt on our October 5th wedding! I could not be happier with her service and just how happy and great she is as a person! She is such a sweetheart and was so accommodating with everything. She was always helpful and gave a lot of insight with our ceremony and how to build it. I definitely recommend her for a no fuss couple looking to do things their way. We got a lot of compliments on her and I would recommend her in a heartbeat!

Thanks Rev. Anne!

We used The Rev for Whatev for our wedding on 5/26/13. Rev. Anne exceeded our expectations! We met with her approximately one month before our wedding and discussed what we wanted in our ceremony and it went perfectly. She was very timely and also helped coordinate with the DJ and wedding party before the ceremony to make sure everything went as it was supposed to. Everybody enjoyed the wedding ceremony we had. She then returned at dinnertime to lead a prayer before our dinner. I would definitely recommend using the Rev for Whatev Thank you again, Rev. Anne.

Rev. Anne was straight and to the point. She gave us our ceremony options- we picked what we liked and it was pretty easy. She was very sweet and informative and very easy to communicate. The ceremony was beautiful. We were out of state and never able to meet her before the wedding so we are very thankful we found her. Highly recommend!
