About Your Custom Ceremony

Your Custom Ceremony is a wedding officiant company founded in 2010. Owner Chris Dickens brings his experience as a former stand-up comedian to provide laughter and entertainment, while his current role and experience as a pastor brings the reverence that your wedding ceremony deserves.

Every ceremony is created from scratch and is tailored to the couple's desires. Chris invests the time needed to get to know you as individuals and as a couple so that Your Custom Ceremony can deliver a service that reflects your desires, values, and beliefs. Pastor Dickens and his team are comfortable officiating any type of ceremony from Christian weddings for any denomination, to weddings with no religion at all.

This bespoke approach to wedding ceremonies is not for everyone. Your Custom Ceremony couples are unique individuals and couples who want their wedding ceremony to be a reflection of their personalities and a memorable experience for them and their guests. The results speak for themselves.

With multiple Couple's Choice Awards, over 90 WeddingWire 5-star reviews (and counting), and having been featured in Vogue magazine Chris Dickens' services have been sought by couples all over the U.S.

Chris has been officiating weddings since April of 2010. Your Custom Ceremony serves all of Southern California including Los Angeles County, Orange County, San Diego, and beyond. With a Bachelor's in Religion from Vanguard University, Chris Dickens has been working in ministry since 2008. A black wedding officiant, Chris grew up in the cultural melting pot of Cerritos, CA, and having studied multiple faiths and practices, he is comfortable officiating multicultural and most interfaith weddings.

    Chris is the ABSOLUTE best!!!

    We are wedding planners who recently had a wedding in Costa Mesa. Chris provided such a heartfelt ceremony that was so true to our couple. He was able to make the crowd laugh and found a perfect way to honor the couple's special traditions. They were worried about how they were going to Break the Glass and Jump the Broom in the same ceremony but with Chris' expertise he guided the couple and their witnesses through a perfectly scripted and timed ceremony.

    Great time

    Having hired Chris was one of the best things I did. I wanted a black person to officiate my wedding and Chris did not disappoint. My family and friends all said that they enjoyed the way he handled the ceremony as well as I and my now husband. The homework was a different and nice touch to give our guests an inside look at our relationship. He was very professional and personable. Mr. Dickens added that special touch of uniqueness and wow factor that made our wedding the most memorable day. Thank you so much!

    Just great

    Chris was very very flexible and helpful through the whole process. The pandemic put a big thorn in our plans but Chris was supportive through the many rescheduled dates and technical difficulties. My wife was very happy with the end result and Chris was instrumental in that.

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.

  • Water Tree Studios Wedding Photographers

    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.

  • FM Productions Wedding DJs

    "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"
