About Us


Please allow me to take the stress out of your wedding ceremony. 

Are you looking for judges/officiants with an intimate knowledge of the many beautiful background settings Chicago has to offer?

Is the "Windy City" of Chicago the setting for your wedding or civil union?

When it comes to the ceremony, do you want to worry less and relax more?

Then allow me, Judge John G. Laurie, to officiate on your special day.

As a lifelong resident of Chicago I am familiar with so many of the parks, landmarks and lakefront settings that adorn this wonderful city and its surrounding areas, I can readily assist you in choosing that perfect site to satisfy the ambiance you desire.

Whether it is the silhouette of a sailboat on the horizon, an endless bouquet of wild flowers or a formal, ceremonious ritual, I have presided at them all.

Please feel free to find out more aboout me, my services and fees, view my photo album, or even contact me to discuss how I can make your special day even more memorable.


John G. Laurie
