From the moment we met Pastor Dean and his lovely wife Donna we have been shown so much kindness. We had the pleasure to spend time with pastor and his wife and we loved our time together. Having Pastor Dean officiate our wedding was a true blessing from God. Thank you so much for being apart of our special day :)

We came across Pastor Dean on Wedding Wire and booked him after some email exchanges based on his excellent reviews. We went to meet with him and his lovely wife a couple of months before the wedding to go over the ceremony details. They are both so nice and welcoming. We sat with them in their home and went through how we met and our story. They gave us all the choices for ceremony, vows, prayers etc to take away and then send back to them. We wanted to change the vows a little which was no problem and also wanted a sand ceremony. Nothing was too much trouble for him. He asked us both to send him three things we loved about the other and we choose not to tell each other and keep that for a surprise for the day and it was really nice. I'd highly recommend Pastor Dean, he makes the ceremony so personal to you both.

We are thrilled with Pastor Dean! Him and his wife are such kind people. The ceremony he performed for us was absolutely beautiful. He gave us lots of different options to choose from as far as what we wanted in the ceremony. He got to know us a little it as a couple too before performing the ceremony. We had a wonderful experience with him and I would definitely recommend him!

I could not possibly write a review that would explain to you how wonderful Pastor Dean AND his wife Donna are. My husband and I are so incredibly thankful that we chose to have had Pastor Dean marry us. All of our communications were professional and caring. You could tell that he was truly interested in us as a couple. We began via email and then met with he and Donna a few months before our big day. We sat and talked for hours about our relationship and how we met. He then went over our ceremony options and sent us home with bible verses, ceremony ideas, and choices. We took our time and then sent pastor Dean our choices. He completely customized his already wonderful wedding outlines for us. It was so beautiful and exactly what I always wanted. He truly brings God into the ceremony as well. His prayers and words will always resound in our hearts. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND Pastor Dean to anyone who is marrying in the Tampa Area but does not have a pastor there. I just cannot stress enough how important your pastor is for your wedding - and Pastor Dean truly makes your day so special! THANK YOU!! :) We are so blessed to know you!

Pastor Dean was a fantastic choice for our officiant. My then fiance and I met with multiple officiants before making our selection. Pastor Dean and his wife welcomed us into their home and made us feel like old friends. With other officiants we met, it seemed like all they wanted was their money and not interested in the sacredness of a wedding. Something that stuck out to me about Pastor Dean and his wife were that they didn't mind waiting for weather to clear to run a little later, or if we were just running late just because all weddings do. Other Officiants we met with wanted to charge for each 5 minutes we were running late. That really worried me. But Pastor Dean was very understanding and very accommodating. Also, we were getting married outside and I didn't want to pay for a mic system if I didn't have to. Pastor Dean's loud and commanding voice made it so we did not have to rent any noise amplifiers and all the guests could hear him. Thanks for making our day special Pastor Dean.

Pastor Dean Ryder was an amazing officiant. Since I was planning a wedding in FL from NY, I needed to find someone who I could trust over the phone since I could not meet this person face to face! He was so kind over the phone and detail oriented with the process. He told me exactly how the day would go ahead of time and was able to give us advice and ideas on the ceremony! He got to know us on a personal level and incorporated it into the ceremony which helped keep the guests interested. His words were well spoken and the ceremony went smoothly. Everyone could hear and understand him clearly. He was very responsive to all of my questions and needs. Included with his fees, he will come to the rehearsal to walk you through the ceremony with your family and bridal party. Which you would think is always included, but not with some of the less kind officiants we interviewed prior to speaking to him! He also went out of his way to help us understand the process for the marriage certificate for one in state resident marrying an out of state resident! He was able to send and recommend a great FL Marriage course online that helps waive the 3 day wait for obtaining your marriage license. The course was actually really eye opening and fun to do with my fiance at the time! We learned a lot about each other through the process! (this course is not required). I would highly recommend Pastor Dean Ryder!! Thank you so much for making my day so special!

We cannot thank Pastor Dean Ryder enough for the personal ceremony he provided for us on our special day. We originally found Pastor Dean based on recommendations on Wedding Wire and met with him and his lovely wife Donna in their home before booking him. Both Dean and Donna were fully invested in getting to know us, the details of our relationship, and what they could do to make our day special. It was important to us to find a pastor that would align the ceremony with our religious views and he delivered a ceremony that acknowledged God's blessing of our union while still allowing the tone to be more casual to fit our beliefs. Pastor Dean is prepared to provide you with material to choose from to help design the ceremony and as a result we felt like we were a part of planning our event. Our favorite feature of his presentation was the incorporation of our "3 favorite things" about each other which were kept secret until the ceremony. Beyond sharing these facts with our audience he integrated those features into a custom sermon to finish off the ceremony to our complete surprise! Our families and friends have all commented on how great and personal the ceremony was, making it a memorable day for us and our guests. His custom remarks are now framed in our home to always remember how special we felt in that moment.

Donna was quick to publish up her own photos of our day allowing us to enjoy a small series of photos as we departed to our honeymoon the next day. A special feature that we did not expect but fully appreciated.

In addition to the stellar ceremony Pastor Dean was always prompt in his responses and always made our wedding feel as important as it should. We will forever recommend him to our friends and family in the Tampa Bay area for his personal approach and friendly professionalism.

Pastor Dean officiated our October 17th ceremony at the Historic Andrews Memorial Chapel in Dunedin, FL, and he did an amazing job. So many of our guests commented afterward that they'd never seen such a unique and special ceremony. I'm actually so sad that I didn't hire a videographer, because he did such a wonderful job that I know I would have loved to watch it again. He has a great presence, projects his voice VERY well, and you can tell that he is so filled with joy to be uniting a couple in marriage. And Pastor Dean's wife, Donna, is such a sweet woman! She took beautiful pictures at the ceremony and sent them to us the very next day. I'd highly recommend having Pastor Dean as part of your day - he does an amazing ceremony!
