“Rev. Russell  Caring Harts Ministry performed our civil wedding ceremony on November 1, 2008.  We were tasked with performing an out of state wedding back in my home town of  Oak Park and had to conduct everything over the phone and through email.  We were a little nervous about what would happen, but Rev. Russell made us feel so comfortable through the entire planning process and ceremony and even has kept in contact with us to help with our needs post wedding.  We knew everything would turn out fine and everything exceeded our expectations.  We absolutely adore Rev. Russell, his wonderful wife and family.  What better start to our new family could we have had?  I would HIGHLY recommend Caring Harts for your wedding officiant needs.”

“I had looked at many different officiants because I wanted our ceremony to very unique and special.  I am so glad we found Rev. Bob!  We were getting closer and closer to the wedding and it started to worry me that I couldn’t find anyone who would customize our ceremony to the way WE wanted it.  Rev Bob was so helpful and understanding every step of the way.  I had a ton of questions and he had no problem getting back to me right away with answers.  We wrote our own vows and Rev. Bob even incorporated them into the ceremony so we didn’t have to read from a piece of paper or worse - memorize them!  I cannot praise him enough.  He is very good at what he does and mostly, truly cares about your special day.  The ceremony was everything we wanted and we felt blessed to have him marry us!  We even forgot the marriage license the day of the wedding and he said no problem just bring it to me tomorrow-it was so nice to have that calm and collected help on a very hectic day!  Thank you!!!


“Rev. Bob, we wanted to thank for such a wonderful ceremony!  All our guests found it to be heart warming & “entertaining.”

“Rev Bob, Erick & I wanted to Thank You, for making our wedding “true to us” and BEAUTIFUL!  Erick was nervous, and I was stressed about the reception details that once I got down the aisle, it all went away.  It was intimate, emotional, comical, serene and unforgettable.  We cannot express our gratitude for sharing our day with us.
