    This was an accidental finding for us. But what a lifesaver! We were getting ready to book a wedding officiant after interviewing a few. We began asking some of the questions (we should have asked in the first place) and discovered the guy with the best personality was a paper minister. Thanks for the heads up. We continued our search and found a legitimate person that fit us perfectly!

      I am really ticked off! We spent an enormous amount of time trying to find a personality that fit ours. Found what we thought was the right guy. Booked him. We then decided to check the credentials of the one we hired. We discovered he’s a fake. We’re out a deposit. And we are starting our search for an officiant all over again! Thanks for the posting!!

        Mike:

        I’m sorry about your experience. Illinois is simply swamped with so many illegitimate officiants. It is unfortunate that the wool is pulled over the eyes of so many couples.

    My fiance and I had been looking for some help sorting through all the legal wedding stuff here in Illinois when we ran across this webinar posting. It was a little long, but very informative. Thank you for saving us a lot of research and perhaps heartache here in Southern Illinois.

      I agree. This posting was longer than the targeted Wedding Minute length. This is the reason only half of the webinar was posted. I am glad you found the posting informative. My best to both of you in your future as husband and wife!
