Wedding officiant in Calabasas
Good day!! Welcome to Dean Merrill Weddings!!
I have been presiding over weddings for nearly two decades and I am fully aware of the long road of preparation that stands before you. But take heart, as the saying goes: “Don’t worry – Be Happy!” I have never been involved in a wedding-day disaster. Your wedding will be GREAT!
Wedding Pastor Calabasas, CA
As your wedding pastor, I am confident of this fact because you have delegated the specifics to caring people who are steadfast in wanting every wedding in which they serve to be well-executed and memorable.Quality is assured when preparation is present. This is especially true of your relationship with your wedding officiant. I wholeheartedly believe that a fantastic wedding is one-of a kind written love story.It is a tribute that reflects the journey that has brought you to this day.
It should not be stuffy, boring, and overly traditional. One of my thoughts about tradition is that we respect it, but we don’t worship it. As your wedding minister I will collaborate with you and your fiancé to design a wedding that perfectly reflects your personalities. It will be a celebration of what makes you unique and worthy of a lifetime commitment. Be assured, I have no agenda when it comes to creating your wedding. I will listen carefully to your story, desires, and backgrounds, and then follow through and use my experience and do what I do best.
Minister in Calabasas3>
My job is to create a one-of-a-kind memorable occasion that has your love story and personalities etched in stone. How does this happen?It is a simple process, but one that is often overlooked. Friendship-building with your wedding ministers is the key to a wonderful wedding. My desire is to spend quality time with you and become your friend and guide. I do not feel comfortable doing a “show-and-go” for a couple’s wedding day.
I have never “appeared” at a wedding in Calabasas without knowing the couples whom I will be marrying. Preparation requires that we meet and develop a friendship to ensure that your wedding is exactly what YOU desire. 90% of all weddings performed by officiants these days are scripted.Your names are plugged into the blank lines and 20 minutes later your wedding is ready to go. With all due respect, I know of many wedding officiants who MAIL separate questionnaires to the bride and groom, then take their answers and write a scripted ceremony.
Sadly, too many couples have no idea that their wedding ceremony preparation could be so much more professional.However, I know from experience that nothing can replace us meeting face to face or via Skype if we live a distance from each other. When friends and family approach me after the wedding commenting how much they appreciated the personal touch, I know we have reached our goal. These types of reactions happen because we have taken the time to know each other. We form a friendship that is “real” as we approach your wedding day. So my humble advice to you is to not settle for the status quo of scripts and questionnaires. Your wedding can be every bit as personal, meaningful and memorable as your engagement and reception, and I would be honored if you contacted me so we can create a celebration that you, your family, and friends will never forget.
