Wedding officiant in Newhall

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 Newhall, 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.Preparation always equals excellence. 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.

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. My responsibility is to understand your vision and expectations for your wedding, which is 100% about YOUR dreams and desires.


Minister in Newhall
 
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. 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 do not feel comfortable doing a “show-and-go” for a couple’s wedding day.

I have never “appeared” at a wedding in Newhall 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.


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 develop a relationship of integrity as we prepare for your wedding. 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.
