I am from Chicago and have no idea where to start looking for an officient. Where have you found yours and who/what were they affiliated with?
The wedding will be in a hotel downtown, and the ceremony/reception will be at the same place. We do not want to do a church being as neither of us are very religious.
The big problem is: my fiance's family wants a Catholic priest to marry us. Has anyone had luck finding someone that will marry outside of the church in Chicago? Worst case senario we find someone else to marry us. Any suggestions? Catholic suggestions or otherwise? We would be willing to accomodate their request, but I have never heard of a Catholic priest marrying outside of the church.
