Wedding Officiant & Minister

Adding a personalized touch to your wedding celebration with 22 years of experience as one of Los Angeles & Ventura County’s most requested wedding officiant.

My creative and professional approach to performing weddings comes from a unique blending of talents I utilize in every ceremony in which I officiate. My extensive background as a motivational speaker, minister, and professional writer gives me the perfect blending of talents that make me one of the most requested wedding ministers. I am currently the preferred wedding officiant for Southern California’s #1 rated wedding coordinator, Bella Vita Events.

What makes your services so unique, Dean?

My Experience

22 years ago, I became a licensed wedding officiant and set out to change the approach to weddings to make them 100% tailored to the personalities and uniqueness of the bride and groom. You don’t have to settle – Your wedding can be meaningful, memorable, creative, and fun! This is all about celebration! 

The Locations

Southern California is one of the most beautiful and sought after areas for weddings within the United States, and I am happy to call it my home.  I take pride in being able to officiate locations from large Destination Weddings to Intimate Backyard Vow Renewals, and of course, many Beach Weddings.

You!

No two couple’s personalities are the same, making your celebration completely unique from the last. My responsibility is to understand your vision, which is 100% about your dreams and desires. Most importantly, I will take the time to weave these wonderful details into your wedding story.

“Dean was amazing! He designed the wedding vows to fit us as a couple and they were perfect. His easy going manner and sense of humor played into our wedding so well that our guests asked if he was a family friend. It’s been 3 months since we tied the knot and I still have family members tell me how great our minister was! Would recommend him to anyone getting married in the area!! Thank you Dean!”
