Wedding officiant in Marina Del Rey
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 Marina Del Rey, 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 the grand finale of the special road you have traveled that brings you to your wedding 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 officiant we will develop a personalized wedding that will be appealing and touching. It will be a celebration of what makes you unique and worthy of a lifetime commitment. As we prepare for your wedding day, I want there to be a growing confidence and excitement about your ceremony because it will be is more special than you could have imagined.

My job is to create a one-of-a-kind memorable occasion that has your love story and personalities etched in stone. How does all of this happen?It is a simple process, but one that is often overlooked. A great wedding takes place because we have built authentic relationships. My desire is to spend quality time with you and become your friend and guide.I am not a “Hired Gun” wedding officiant.
I have never “appeared” at a wedding in Marina Del Rey without knowing the brida and groom 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. 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 develop a relationship of integrity as we prepare for your wedding. 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.
