About Me


My name is Scott Raper. I am an independent ordained minister who serves as a wedding officiant. I began performing wedding ceremonies in the spring of 2014. I was born and raised in Bloomington/Normal, IL. As I embarked on my quest for change, Springfield, IL became my new home. I get to wake up everyday and know I have an amazing family to share my life with. I could not be who I am today without my wife, Traci, and our three wonderful children, Alexus, Natalie, and Dax.


‚ÄčIn addition to creating custom wedding ceremonies, I recently finished my MBA at Benedictine University at Springfield and am an adjunct business instructor at Lincoln College. I recently completed my credentialing to be a certified professional life coach and have taken on a the role of student advocate at Benedictine University.
