Vendor Spotlight: De Novo Concierge Pastors

Pastor Paul was everything you want in a wedding officiant! He made everyone feel comfortable, had great advice for our vows, showed up on time, laughed with us, and made the day so perfect! His wife is also a gem!!! She helped with making the day run smoothly! From the bottom of my heart I want to say thank you Paul! You touched our hearts and made our special day even more special!

When we think of wedding vendors that go the extra mile to ensure that their couples have the best treatment, our minds immediately go to De Novo Concierge Pastors. It can be hard to find an officiant that not only makes you feel important, but also like you were born to be friends. Dr. Paul Martinez and his team of Concierge Pastors are the kind of business that you’ll never forget.

Beyond their wildly friendly + professional service, De Novo provides a range of resources for local couples that are getting married. Unlike many other officiants, Paul offers pre-marriage counseling for couples who want to enter their marriage feeling like they have plenty of guidance and strength to get the most out of their relationship. Paul is a certified SYMBIS (“Saving Your Marriage Before it Starts”) facilitator, which is the foundation for his coaching methods. With SYMBIS, couples will take a short assessment that paves the path to understanding their relationship dynamics.

When it comes to officiating your wedding, Paul and the team of concierge pastors will work with you from start to finish, making sure that you have everything you need during the rehearsal and ceremony. They’re no strangers to beautiful love stories and great celebrations, so you can trust that they will handle everything perfectly. Wedding officiants are your guide toward your life together, so it is important that they bring out the best in you and your guests. There will be nothing but sweet smiles, laughter, and maybe quite a few happy-tears, during your ceremony – and that’s just how it should be.

We love seeing our vendors become famous within the wedding community, so check out this interview with Paul that has been posted up on the Wedding Report’s page! After viewing and eager to learn more, you can get connected with De Novo Concierge Pastors here.
