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 70 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.


Experience
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 in school, he is comfortable officiating multicultural and most interfaith weddings. Pastor Dickens is currently pursuing his Master of Divinity at Fuller Theological Seminary and is a Pastor at Uncommon Church in Santa Ana.

    Still receiving compliments on our ceremony!

    From the moment we spoke with Chris, we knew he was going to be the perfect officiant for our wedding. And I have to admit, even with very high expectations, Chris went above and beyond all expectations. My wife and I come from several different cultural and religious backgrounds, and we wanted our ceremony to touch on each culture without being overly religious. Chris was able to find a perfect balance and did so wonderfully. What I appreciate the most is that Chris was able to lead a ceremony based on our love and history together. We're about two weeks removed from our big day, and we're still receiving non-stop compliments as to how memorable our ceremony was. Chris was able to deliver everything we could ask for and more, and if you want your guests to be wowed by a customized and unique ceremony, he is no doubt your guy

    Thank you so much for your kind words and feedback Alex. You two had a great story and getting to know you was a lot of fun. I was honored and blessed to be a part of your big day.

    Absolutely fantastic!

    Chris was absolutely amazing! We were complimented by many of our guests on how amazing Chris was at keeping the ceremony serious while also making it funny and inclusive. He also helped when I forgot my vows, LOL! He also made sure to send our entire ceremony to us prior to the wedding to allow us to add/remove any information or material that was in there that we did not like. It was truly CUSTOM! I would absolutely recommend Chris to any of my friends that may be getting married soon!

    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"
