Wedding officiant in Fillmore

Good day!! Welcome to Dean Merrill Weddings!!

Through 19 years of presiding over hundreds weddings, I am keenly aware of the unlimited particulars in getting ready for your HUGE CELEBRATION may seem overpowering. But I want to give you assurance that everything WILL come together and your wedding will be fantastic!


Wedding Pastor Fillmore, 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. When your team is prepared, excellence will follow. This is especially true of your relationship with your wedding officiant. The finest wedding ceremonies are a unique creation that reflect the personalities of the bride and groom. Your Big Day is a celebration of a relationship that is making the commitment for a lifetime.

Your wedding should not be a “yawner,” dull, or outdated. One of my thoughts about tradition is that we respect it, but we don’t worship it. As your wedding pastor I will work closely with you to create a ceremony that will be an expression of your unique relationship. It will be a celebration of what makes you unique and worthy of a lifetime commitment. My responsibility is to understand your vision and expectations for your wedding, which is 100% about YOUR dreams and desires.


Minister in Fillmore
 
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 goal is to get to know you as a couple so your ceremony will be personalized and appealing.I am not a “Hired Gun” wedding officiant.

I have never “appeared” at a wedding in Fillmore without knowing the people whom I will be marrying. Preparation requires that we meet and develop a friendship to ensure that your wedding is exactly what YOU desire. A vast majority of wedding ceremonies in this day and age are respectfully impersonal.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.


For couples who don’t know the difference, this person may seem to be the “sufficient-officiant.”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. I am humbled and gratified that there are usually many guests who approach me after a wedding commenting on how much it meant to them that the ceremony had a personal and meaningful touch.These types of reactions happen because we have taken the time to know each other. We form an authentic connection as we plan for your special moment in time. Your wedding ceremony can be the momentum that will allow your reception to be 10 times better than it would have been had you settled for less than best, and I would be thrilled to speak with you and create a wedding day that you and your guests will always remember.
