Staff

Reverend Dennis M. Wargo, M.Div.

I am a formally educated, trained, and ordained married catholic priest/minister with years of experience and 100’s of weddings under my belt. I specialize in non-denominational marriage ceremonies. Although the wedding ceremonies I perform are not recognized by the Roman Catholic Church, they are recognized as legal by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania in that I am certified by the International Council of Community Churches and a member of CITI Ministries, Inc.. I use my strong background working with my clients to perfect their ceremony. I have received formal training in Ceremony Construction, Ceremony Execution, Public Speaking, and various belief systems that coupled with my experience creates a winning combination. I am a graduate of Duquesne University, Pittsburgh (B.A. – Philosophy and Theology) and Christ the King Seminary, E. Aurora, N.Y (Master of Divinity - Pastoral Theology and Counseling). I have also done Post-Graduate studies at various locations.

    Absolutely Recommend!

    We hired Rev. Dennis for our wedding and we were not disappointed! He was so laid back and easy to work with. He provided us with a wedding planning kit where we could specifically pick everything in our ceremony from our vows to the ceremony execution. We had a great experience and I would absolutely recommend him to anyone looking for an officiant.

    Patience is key

    Dennis was kind, funny, and professional. He was also incredibly PATIENT. We had a number of bumps and obsticals over the course of planning our special day and he would always check in to see how we were doing and make sure we were on track. We had a non-traditional ceremony and he was more than accommodating in every regard. Couldn't recommend him highly enough!

If you are planning your Wedding greater than 90 days from your booking date, you are eligible for using our "Interest-Free Monthly Payment Plan" This plan takes the total cost of your Wedding Ceremony, Travel, Additional Ceremonies and divides the cost by the number of months between your booking date and your ceremony date. You will be billed, via email, each month for your payment amount. However, all payments are generally non-refundable in that they hold your date for that month. This program will equalize your payments and extend them over the period of your planning. Many couples have found this plan to simplfy their wedding budgeting and allowed them to have a more "upgraded" plan.
