Chicago Wedding Rites Wedding Minister

Dr. Elizabeth-Anne Stewart,  ChicagoWedding Officiant



About twelve years ago, I performed my first wedding in a Tango studio for a couple who wanted to blend Polish marriage customs with Argentine Tango; that's when I discovered the joy of Wedding Officiating!  Now, I not only perform religious ceremonies but also ceremonies that are spiritual rather than religious. A professional writer, I use my creativity and flair for language to create outstandingly beautiful ceremonies that fit each couple's beliefs and life experiences. Whether you are looking for fun, light humor or solemnity, I will deliver a ceremony guaranteed to delight!

With a PhD in Theology, I have an extensive repertoire to draw on, having taught ritual at DePaul University, Columbia College, and other Chicago area colleges.  My approach as a Wedding Officiant is warm, personal and engaging because I use everyday language and concepts that touch the heart. My goal is to make you and your guests feel at ease, regardless of the ceremony you choose.
