I grew up here in Indiana. I've been a high school teacher, a construction worker and a pastor. I have a Masters Degree in Youth Ministry and I love to hunt and fish. I tell you those things to let you know I have a wide variety of experiences and interests that allow me to relate well to all types of people.

As a long time ministry veteran I have had the opportunity to work with people of all types and from all walks of life. My experience helps me understand and love people for who they are.

I've been married to my beautiful wife Karyn for more than 25 years and have two great kids.

Over the last ten years I have performed many weddings all over Indiana. From Gazebos in Carmel and at Ft. Harrison to backyard decks; from the Ritz Charles to the Indiana State Capitol; from large churches to The Children's Museum; Eiteljorg to the State Museum, I've performed ceremonies in many interesting and exciting places. Equally comfortable in the most formal of settings and the most casual, my good natured personality will put you and your guests at ease and allow you to enjoy your wedding.

Your wedding day is very important - I will do whatever I can to make it a special and memorable day. It would be an honor to partner with you in planning and celebrating your wedding.

Awesome Wedding Officiant!

I cannot even put into words how thrilled my husband & I are that we decided to book with Indy Wedding Pastors for our wedding officiant. We had the honor of working with Dennie, who was a phenomenal wedding officiant! Dennie is not only an amazing person overall, but he really made sure to personalize our ceremony to exactly what both my husband and I wanted. All of our meetings with him were so helpful and it was so beneficial to be able to get to know him prior to our wedding. We both felt as if Dennie really took the time to not only get to know us as a couple but both of us individually as well. His communication and professionalism were excellent throughout the entire wedding planning process. I highly recommend any future brides/grooms to book with Indy Wedding Pastors- you will not regret it!

Heartfelt Appreciation for Exceptional Wedding Officiant

I recently had the pleasure of having my wedding ceremony officiated by Dennie Mitchel. From the moment he stepped onto the stage, it was evident that he possessed an unparalleled passion for his role and a genuine love for uniting couples in marriage.

What struck me most about Dennie, was his ability to create an atmosphere of warmth, love, and joy. His charismatic presence commanded attention, yet he remained approachable and personable throughout the entire ceremony. He not only effortlessly connected with us, but also with the guests, making everyone feel included and engaged in the celebration. I had multiple people tell me how amazing his demeanor was and his words.
His eloquence of words was truly awe-inspiring. He skillfully crafted a ceremony that was not only meaningful but also personalized to reflect our love story and journey with him through our meetings. His words resonated deeply with everyone present, evoking laughter, tears, and an overwhelming sense of love and unity. It was as if he had known us for years, effortlessly weaving together anecdotes, heartfelt wishes, and profound insights to create a ceremony that will forever be etched in our memories.

One aspect that truly stood out was the officiant's ability to strike a perfect balance between tradition and modernity. He incorporated rituals and customs that were important to us while infusing a fresh and contemporary touch. It was a beautiful fusion of old and new, honoring tradition while embracing our individuality and the changing times.

Not only did Dennie excel in his role during the ceremony, but he also displayed exceptional organizational skills leading up to the big day. He was prompt, professional, and attentive to every detail, ensuring that no aspect was overlooked.
In conclusion, Dennie was nothing short of extraordinary. His ability to create a magical and personalized ceremony, his eloquence and captivating presence, his genuine warmth and kindness, and his impeccable organizational skills all combined to make this wedding an unforgettable experience for everyone involved.

If you're searching for a wedding officiant who will surpass your expectations and create a ceremony that will leave a lasting impression, I wholeheartedly recommend this incredible individual. Dennie Mitchel is truly a gem in the world of wedding officiating.

Exceptional experience

Dennie helped my husband and I have the perfect ceremony. He was helpful, gave us lots of options, and was supportive of our ideas for the ceremony. The premarital counseling sessions ended up being very informative and Dennie was never judgmental in his deliverance of his opinions. Dennie also took charge during the rehearsal and made it a successful and informative event. I left feeling confident that everything would go as planned at the wedding the next day. The actual wedding day ceremony went off without a problem and Dennie once again was extremely helpful the day of. Dennie was always on time and dressed professionally.
