About Us

Rev. Phil Landers is the most and best reviewed officiant in the Chicago area.

The only way to guarantee that your ceremony will not be boring is to have Rev. Phil share your love story at your wedding

  • “Our guests LOVED the ceremony, and we got tons of compliments from friends and family, and even our DJs! Many ofour guests didn’t know our love story, and were in tears laughing during Rev. Phil’s presentation. Rev. Phil helped make our wedding a unique experience, not only for us, but also our guests.”

    — Tina & Scott, Cantigny, Wheaton
    from a 5-star WeddingWire review

  • “He told the story of how we met as if he was there to witness the relationship begin. All of our guest enjoyed the ceremony and were all emotional with tears of joy!”

    — from a private 5-star WeddingWire review
     

The other 3 steps to a non-boring ceremony:

  • Get a complete script, in advance -- you know and approve everything being said at the ceremony
    • “We had our script far in advance and were able to change what we saw fit and knew exactly what was expected from us. He has everything in details in the script down to who stands where and what time, which really helped organize us.”

      — from a private 5-star WeddingWire review

  • Get a 2.5 hour planning session -- sit with an expert who gives you guidance and advice, but you get to decide!
    • “Rev. Phil Landers was such a great person to work with. He had so many great ideas and suggestions of ways to do things that we never even thought of. He was a pleasure to work with and helped us feel at ease on our wedding day.”

      — from a private 5-star WeddingWire review

  • Get a one hour rehearsal on a separate day. (Most officiants do a half hour rehearsal, so they can go home sooner)
    • “Rev. Phil was amazing through the whole planning process. In fact, at the rehearsal one would have thought he was our wedding planner as well! All I can say is months later and people are still talking about our wedding!”

The next step is to fill out the form on Rev. Phil's web site and get a complimentary one hour consultation (a $100 value).

  • “If you're looking for a personalized ceremony that will engage versus bore your guests, contact him today and cross your fingers that he is available.”

The ceremony was everything we thought it would be and more! It was traditional, humorous and heartfelt. I knew from the start of the process with Rev. Phil that our daughter would have a perfect ceremony. The guests are still talking about it!
