Quality of Service

I am always skeptical when I read ONLY good reviews about a product or service- however- Dennis has EARNED every bit of it!!! There is definitely a reason why after hundreds of reviews he still holds a 5.0 rating! He is PHENOMENAL!! He is extremely quick to respond (I even emailed him at midnight one night right before the wedding and he e-mailed me back at 3 am after he got home from another wedding!) He's very dedicated to making sure everything turns out just the way YOU want it to, and he is SO organized which I found extremely helpful with everything else I was trying to manage during this time. He arrived very early on the day of my wedding to make sure he had plenty of time to run through everything one last time with me and then my [now] husband (separately- since we couldn't see each other the day of)- he was extremely patient, personable, knowledgeable and well-rehearsed. He has definitely done his fair share of weddings as everything ran SO smoothly. I noticed looking back at some pictures my family took that he even moved out of the frame at some points- such as when we participated in the unity vase (which was top quality). He was professional as well as fun- even helping my husband play a little joke on me about the rings (yes, he got me good on this one since Dennis played it off so well!) We got married on the beach and I can't count how many guests commented on the fact that they could hear everything so crisp and clear through his sound system! We also used him as our DJ and he did an AMAZING job getting the party going and reading the crowd to know what to play without being too quiet (yawn) or too loud (no one wants to leave a wedding with their ears still ringing..)!! I HIGHLY recommend Dennis for your wedding/event- you will not regret it.

I specialize in Officiating weddings, combining a photo package with the ceremony.  See my photography work here on my wedding wire site or on my actual website. 

    My website is     cut & paste in your browser bar to go there from here.

I also am very experienced at providing DJ entertainment on the NW Gulf Coast of Florida. I take great pride in keeping a party going, reading the crowd, and having prepared for it well ahead of time.

If you will understand that my skill set is based on public speaking, music skills, and photography, you will see the benefits of using me for your wedding, elopement, renewal of vows, or reception.

If you are having a reception .... Your Best Value is to have me as BOTH Officiant AND DJ Entertainment / host for your reception.  Of course I do not provide photography when I am the DJ.

My most demanded package is .....  Wedding Officiant - Photo Package - Sand Illustration .... and this will certainly meet the demands when you only have a few guests, or even couple only.

PLEASE EMAIL inquiries to    or call me @      850-814-8373 (I have my email & phone with me 24/7 but if I'm performing a ceremony or on the phone with someone else I will call you back as soon as I can  :-) 

There is some basic information I need to gather in order to provide you a complete and accurate quote for your event.......

a.  The Date of your event

b.  I will need first & last names of bride & groom and a cell phone which will be with you at the beach.

c.  Are there children from previous relationships I can include in the ceremony?

d.  Where you'll be staying at the beach because not every resort is wedding friendly and I do have favorite ceremony spots,    ----- at the very least .... what town or area you'll be coming to.

e.  How many guests you expect

f.  Are you planning a reception.

I have been a part of the business community on the Gulf Coast of Florida since 1978.  I am most dependable and reputable.  Flexible with the ceremony and vows. Write your own, Use mine, or Tweak Mine.  I will meet you anywhere to perform your ceremony.  Many of my couples have me as both Officiant for their ceremony AND DJ for their reception.  I work very hard at doing the right thing for you on your wedding day.  My Custom Sand Illustration is second to none.

Because I do not check the inbox associated with this storefront very often,  PLEASE contact me via EMAIL  ... ... or  ...  call me at ...   850-814-8373.   

YES, I accept payments using PAYPAL

Making adjustments is key for me as we determine exactly what you need for your ceremony and/or reception. If you contact me for information, it is essential that we dialogue enough to make that determination. Packages from $400 and up, depending on what I am providing. You do not have to figure any mileage costs with me.  After visiting on the phone or via email, I'll give you a flat fee quote in an email with a complete description of services.  My priority is that your ceremony and/or reception be as stress free and enjoyable of an experience as possible.  Let me do the worrying for you.
