Are you tired of worrying about your big day? Can’t find a minister who understands? Are you stressed out wondering how divorced parents will get along? Divorced and Catholic? Blended faith backgrounds? Want to include your children in the ceremony? I’ll help you create just the right solution to create a joyful day.

Let’s get together to talk about your most special occasion. I’ll meet with you to plan it according to your wishes. It can be personal, formal, informal — you choose. I’ll help you take care of the details so we resolve those “tricky” family situations that now seem impossible.

Together, we’ll make this a day to remember — in a good way!

I do weddings in the Chicago area — Downtown, North Shore, or Near West. Indoors, outdoors, at your home, hotel, or banquet hall — whatever it is, your day will be beautiful, special, spiritual, and even fun!

I’ve been a local church pastor for 26 years, and have done hundreds of weddings. No situation is too awkward or complex, you probably can’t surprise me. Let’s check our calendars. I’m flexible most any day or time, but no Sunday mornings.

Whatever you decide, I wish you both a joy-filled life together.

Thank you so much for your wonderful services during & leading up to our wedding. You truly made it a “no-worry” process, and we have received countless compliments on the wedding ceremony.

We will always look back on those moments at the altar with a smile, and a big reason for that is the wonderful work that you did.

Dear Rev. Pam,

Thank you so much for putting together such a beautiful ceremony for us! You perfectly captured us and charmed all our guests. Many people asked if we had known you for a long time.

We cannot express how much we appreciate the care you put into our ceremony to make it so special…

With Much Thanks,

Katie & Jacob


Dear Pam,

Thank you very much for everything you did that made our wedding day so special. I don’t know if you remember this, but in our first pre-wedding meeting you asked me what my “dream wedding” was. I gave you a blank embarrassed look admitting I didn’t have a “dream wedding.” Well I do now. You performed it. It was an absolutely perfect ceremony. Thank you so very much!

Dear Rev. Keckler,

Nick and I wanted to thank you for your role in Rob and Emily’s lovely wedding celebration. The ceremony was so elegant, warm and meaningful. The entire church community made us feel so welcomed. Blending faith backgrounds can be difficult, but you did a beautiful job with your presence and your prayers.

Peace and love,

Ann and Nick

Dear Pam,

Arlene and I can’t thank you enough for making our wedding ceremony more beautiful than we could ever imagine. We both knew, after the first time we met with you, that you were the right choice for our special day. We appreciate the way that you were so easy to conduct business with and how accessible you were leading up to our wedding day. Both of our families spoke very highly of you and the entire wedding ceremony. Arlene and I feel that you made the whole experience very personal and captured our feelings toward each other perfectly. We could not be happier! Thank you so much.

Arlene and Steve


Dear Pam,

We wanted to say thank you ” for officianting” (is that a word? (;-) ) our wedding. It was beautiful and incorporated everything we wanted. From our first meeting to the big day, your help was and is deeply appreciated.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

What a great ceremony! So heartfelt and thoughtful. It meant a lot to Jim and me to have Chrissy married in the church she was raised in, and just a special bonus having two friends she grew up with in the church participate in the wedding. We thought the ceremony was very sincere and warm and loving. The Catholics were all wowed and everyone loved you!

Thank you for sharing the day with us.

Darcie and Jim


Dear Pam,

We are so incredibly grateful to you — our wedding ceremony was beyond perfect. Thank you for working with us to create a unique ceremony, and thank you especially for your lovely homily. Your words have really stayed with us.

With thanks and love,

Katy and Rob
