I specialize in Officiating weddings, combining a photo package with the ceremony. See my photography work here on my wedding wire site or on my actual website.

My website is www.denniswrader.com cut & paste in your browser bar to go there from here.

I also am very experienced at providing DJ entertainment on the NW Gulf Coast of Florida. I take great pride in keeping a party going, reading the crowd, and having prepared for it well ahead of time.

If you will understand that my skill set is based on public speaking, music skills, and photography, you will see the benefits of using me for your wedding, elopement, renewal of vows, or reception.

If you are having a reception .... Your Best Value is to have me as BOTH Officiant AND DJ Entertainment / host for your reception. Of course I do not provide photography when I am the DJ.

My most demanded package is ..... Wedding Officiant - Photo Package - Sand Illustration .... and this will certainly meet the demands when you only have a few guests, or even couple only.

PLEASE EMAIL inquiries to dennisrader@mac.com or call me @ 850-814-8373 (I have my email & phone with me 24/7 but if I'm performing a ceremony or on the phone with someone else I will call you back as soon as I can :-)

There is some basic information I need to gather in order to provide you a complete and accurate quote for your event.......

a. The Date of your event

b. I will need first & last names of bride & groom and a cell phone which will be with you at the beach.

c. Are there children from previous relationships I can include in the ceremony?

d. Where you'll be staying at the beach because not every resort is wedding friendly and I do have favorite ceremony spots, ----- at the very least .... what town or area you'll be coming to.

e. How many guests you expect

f. Are you planning a reception.

I have been a part of the business community on the Gulf Coast of Florida since 1978. I am most dependable and reputable. Flexible with the ceremony and vows. Write your own, Use mine, or Tweak Mine. I will meet you anywhere to perform your ceremony. Many of my couples have me as both Officiant for their ceremony AND DJ for their reception. I work very hard at doing the right thing for you on your wedding day. My Custom Sand Illustration is second to none.

Because I do not check the inbox associated with this storefront very often, PLEASE contact me via EMAIL ... dennisrader@mac.com ... or ... call me at ... 850-814-8373.

YES, I accept payments using PAYPAL

Making adjustments is key for me as we determine exactly what you need for your ceremony and/or reception. If you contact me for information, it is essential that we dialogue enough to make that determination. Packages from $400 and up, depending on what I am providing. You do not have to figure any mileage costs with me. After visiting on the phone or via email, I'll give you a flat fee quote in an email with a complete description of services. My priority is that your ceremony and/or reception be as stress free and enjoyable of an experience as possible. Let me do the worrying for you. Read less

Brother Dennis was simply amazing. We were pretty pleased with all of our vendors, but Brother Dennis went above and beyond our expectations both as our officiant and as our DJ. We wanted to have a traditional Celtic ceremony and Brother Dennis was happy to deviate far from his usual fare. He enthusiastically researched Oathing stones, trinity knots, and claddaghs so that he could help to make sure that our ceremony was perfect. Our music selection was a bit on the obscure side, and he was more then happy to work with us to ensure that our music would be just right.

I have never seen a more responsive vendor. When my wife and I would email him a question, we would typically receive a thoughtfully worded response within 5-15 minutes. If you want an officiant that will be there for you and help to make your day special, Brother Dennis is definitely your guy.

From the very 1st call from me, which Dennis answered while on his way to do another ceremony, I knew I was gonna like this guy! He gave me simple, easy to follow instructions on the phone and followed up with detailed email. He`s got that polite southern charm and is well versed in handling every aspect of a wedding from the Bride`s entrance til the "I DO`s" and beyond if you wish. We would recommend Dennis to anyone considering a beautiful beach wedding that will last in your memory for years to come.
Thanks Dennis

Dennis recently did our beach wedding and I couldn't be any happier with how great it turned out. He was very pleasant to work with and flexable. I loved how great the pictures turned out as well. I could not believe how many pictures we got for the price. I couldn't ask for anything more..He really captured the moment. I would recommend him to any one.

Dennis is awesome! It's always scary to find a vendor online without meeting them, but I saw the reviews Dennis had and decided to trust them. I was right! Dennis was great. From the day I booked through the wedding, he was on top of all the details, and very professional and organized. I was worried about the sound quality due to our beach wedding and beach reception, but it sounded perfect. We received tons of compliments on how great he was. I would highly recommend him. We also already have our marriage license (he got it all taken care of very quickly).

I wanted to surprise my wife with a Wedding Vow Renewal Ceremony on the beach while we were on vacation to Panama City Beach. I contacted Mr. Rader and he handled everything, making it extremely easy for me to pull off this surprise for my wife. Mr. Rader was wonderful in communicating, providing the ceremony for review, asking the right questions and providing everything I needed. All we had to do was show up! The photos he took turned out great! I am forever grateful to Mr. Rader for everything he did. It is comforting to deal with an honest, professional and caring person. I definitely recommend Dennis Rader's services to anyone.

Dennis Rader is amazing!! He provided our officiant and DJ services, with stylish attire for each portion of the day's events!

We planned our entire wedding from across the country (destination wedding), and without having been to the Destin area before. Dennis not only helped suggest ceremony planning ideas (looked up the sunset time, provided maps for the area, suggested ceremony outline and timeline, provided wedding license information), but also was quick to respond to my million and one questions! Dennis was both reassuring in all aspects of planning and quick to offer advice without being pushy - he is very sensitive to the requests of the bride and groom! He helped the bridal party (an experience similar to rounding chickens!!) and parents during the hours of preparation leading to the sunset ceremony. He worked with me to write the perfect ceremony (his format, plus special additions written by my father), accommodated our day-of wedding schedule changes, and helped ensure a stress free ceremony and reception. He also kept the reception exciting, and always had our guests dancing. At the last minute we added a garter and bouquet toss, and Dennis flawlessly added them into our evening, in addition to an extra hour of reception time. Would recommend Dennis without reservation!!

Dennis served as both the wedding official as well as the DJ for our wedding on June 23, 2014 at The Destin Bay House. Dennis is professional and inviting and truly created and captured the atmosphere we wanted for our religious outdoor ceremony. Our family and friends all commented on how beautiful our ceremony was and how much fun they had during the reception!! My brother-in-law said "that is the best party I have ever been to" and my brother-in-law is a non-drinker. Dennis is skilled at playing appropriate music for the right moments and then getting people on the dance floor for some fun!

I highly recommend Dennis as both a wedding official and a DJ!!

Sincerely,
Kim Rodgers Schween
