"A marriage is based upon a foundation of trust, faith and commitment. Trust to keep you open and honest with each other. Faith in each other to allow you to overcome doubt and adversity. Perhaps most importantly, commitment to keep you true to the promises you make to each other today."
Michael Moody, author of the self-improvement book Redefine Yourself: The Simple Guide to Happiness, serves as an ordained minister in Chicago (the River North, West Loop, Bucktown, Wicker Park, Old Town, Lincoln Park, Lakeview, South Loop, West Town, Logan Square, and Streeterville neighborhoods) and has performed several of his wedding ceremonies at the Rookery, Stan Mansion, the River North Restaurant ZED451, and more! He is also the recent winner of the 2016 WeddingWire Couples' Choice Award in Chicago.
Michael's philosophy has evolved from a foundation of health, happiness, and mindfulness. His writings and speeches reflect the hope and inspiration of the people who surround him and the innate character of all beings. Michael believes that marriage will make each of you stronger so you will have the energy and passion to do things you might not choose to do alone.
Ultimately, Michael's holistic experience has helped him recently publish his book and serve as the Chicago wedding officiant for many wedding ceremonies.
