"My (now) husband and I were in a hugely stressful bind when
my great uncle, a retired judge, had to cancel as officiant for our
wedding less than a week before the big day.

I wrote a flurry of emails to officiants and chose Carrie based on
her good reviews and the commitment to openness she
expressed on her website (and proximity to our ceremony site-
north side Chicago!).

We are so glad she was free throughout the week before she was
incredibly responsive and willing to work with the personal
secular ceremony my husband and I had worked on for a month
(and the incredibly tight time schedule & other pre-wedding
stresses we were dealing with that week).

My husband especially appreciated the fact that Carrie kept him
in the loop for the entire process - she always emailed us or
called us both and made sure we were both treated equally,
treatment he didn't get from a lot of our other bride-centric
vendors.

We were so grateful to Carrie for her flexibility,
professionalism, and kindness.

Thank you for helping us have a memorable, beautiful day!"
....Carrie made us feel like we had such a personal relationship
from the first moment we met with her!

We felt like we knew her since the beginning and she was
available to us by email, phone and in person. Took us on a
tour of her adorable wedding ceremony site.

She adapted to our non traditional wedding and when we
asked to change everything one day before, she was all smiles
and supported every decision providing us options. She gave
us a complete experience!

Before knowing about Chicago JOP we wanted to go to City
hall and after calling to make an appt and then yelling at me
for calling too late they close at 4!

Carrie performed the ceremony of our dreams! For future
vow renewals, we are calling her!

Please schedule a meeting with her before feeling the despair
of having a City hall wedding or even going to Las Vegas!

Just like us, ELOPE to Chicago and have the wedding of your
dreams without the price tag!

Thank you Cari for being part of our best day of our lives!"

My husband and I were married this February (2011)
by Ms. Cari Rivera. 3 days before our wedding
Chicago received 23 inches of snow!

Despite the blizzard, Ms. Rivera braved the weather
and snowy streets, to make it to our ceremony.
The ceremony was graceful and beautiful.

Ms. Rivera was in constant contact with me in the
weeks before the wedding.

I would recommend Ms. Rivera in a heartbeat."
"If you're looking for someone down to earth that will take into consideration all of for a
better wedding officiant, she was patient, and met with us a couple of times
to make sure everything went down smoothly on the big day,
not to mention she kept in touch through email!

On the day before the wedding we were forced to change our venue and the time of the
ceremony but Carrie was flexible and understanding so she came through!

So what are you waiting for call Carrie NOW!"
