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."

    Part of the Family

    Chris was highly recommend by our wedding planner. After doing our research, we agreed to have an interview with him. He was very accommodating to our time schedule. He suggested a FaceTime interview. I’m which we shared stories and laughed, by the time we hung up, we liked him very much and knew he was the one. He asked us a lot of questions on how we want our ceremony, how we meet, where our first date was, etc. After sharing multiple emails with Chris (what he calls homework) only a few times before our ceremony he really made it seem like he knew us for years. Our family and friends have all commented on how well he gave our ceremony and how well he knew our story. He made it more personal and less cookie cutter like some of the other weddings. He really gets the crowd involved, which was what we wanted. You can tell he really took his time with our ceremony and put a very personal touch on it. We highly recommend Chirs to anyone who is looking for a officiant, you will not regret it.

    Friendly & Professional

    We were running late on finding an officiant for our ceremony and had no luck with the officiants we had previously looked at. Our wedding planner then suggested Chris as he was available and thought he would be a perfect fit. After having our first meeting, we know he would be the perfect match for us. I'm normally an awkward person so it's a little difficult for me to hold conversations with others but Chris made talking to him very comfortable and it helped that he was nerdy me and my husband. The whole process was great and he really took his time to get to know us to write a ceremony that accommodated who we are and made sure we liked everything he had drafted for the ceremony which was very reassuring. When the day of our wedding came our ceremony went smoothly and was a light-hearted fun experience. Both our families loved the ceremony and all of Chris' hard work for making our day extra special.

    Thank you Brenda for the review and thank you for allowing me to be a part of your wedding. I had so much fun writing your ceremony and incorporating your traditional elements with a touch of nerdy fun. It was one of my favorites. Blessings!

    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"
