About Your Custom Ceremony

Congratulations on your engagement! My name is Chris Dickens and I create custom, one-of-a-kind wedding ceremonies for couples all across Southern California. I do not have pre-written or canned ceremonies. Everything I do is uniquely tailored to your desires and needs.

As a former stand-up comedian, I love to make people laugh, but as a pastor, I give your wedding ceremony the reverence that it deserves. I am comfortable officiating any type of ceremony from Christian weddings for any denomination, to weddings with no religion at all. My objective is to get to know you as individuals and as a couple so that I can deliver a service that reflects your desires, values, and beliefs.

Thank you for considering me. I look forward to working with you.

You're unique, and your wedding should be too.

    The custom ceremony we always dreamed of!

    We were struggling to find an officiant that understood what we were looking for when planning our ceremony - until we jumped on a call with Chris! He made us feel like he truly cared to get to know us, our love story and what we are looking for in an officiant. He was great about communicating with us and customizing everything we wanted to make the ceremony our own all the while giving us great suggestions. The ceremony was the perfect blend between fun and joyous laughs and heartfelt, emotional words that brought our friends (AND US) to tears. The one thing that our wedding guests gave us the most positive feedback on was our unique ceremony and the amazing officiant who put it together- Chris Dickens. I would highly recommend him to anyone getting married!

    All of us here at Waveform Events LOVE working with Chris of Your Custom Ceremony. The key to his success is right there in the name. Custom. It's never a routine with Chris, never a formula. He takes the time to get to know all of his couples, and works with them to design the ceremony exactly as they have envisioned it. The result is a moving, personal experience that each couple will cherish in their memories. He's a pleasure to work with as a dj, always ready and happy to go over the ceremony with us, so that we know the proper music cues and sound levels, and can help him create a seamless event. If you want a ceremony especially tailored to your lifetime dream, look no further than Chris of Your Custom Ceremony.

    Chris is a pleasure to work with. The depth that he goes to get to know each couple and their story really shows in the very personal and warm ceremonies he performs. I give him 5 stars for his ceremonies. They engage and touch all who attend your big day.

    "We see a lot of wedding officiants, but Chaplain Chris and Your Custom Ceremony impressed us. He was engaging, funny, but still very professional. The way he talked about the bride and groom we thought that he was a friend of the family, but it turned out he'd only known them a few weeks. Chaplain Chris really gets to know his couples and that makes for a great ceremony"
