Rev. Dale,
   I just wanted to tell you again thank you for making
my wedding day happen. I was really nervous,
especially after losing his ring in the sand. You made
me feel really at ease. We said yesterday that when our 10 year anniversary comes, we want to be back at the beach to renew our vows. I'll be looking you up then!
Millions of thanks!

 Really  BIG Problem.
Unless you bring your own minister or you know someone who knows officiants they trust, doing a web search IS overwhelming.  Frustrations abound and stress heightens trying to locate and secure
just-the-right wedding minister

with which you feel comfortable.  Many couples look for and need a non-denominational wedding minister as their Wilmington Wedding Minister.

Cape Fear Wedding Minister is an ordained, non-denominational Wilmington officiant serving the Wilmington North Carolina area with simple, affordable wedding ceremonies in all venues from floating on the Henrietta III to sand between your toes on the beach to all indoor locations to public parks and private backyards.

Cape Fear Wedding Minister Rail Photo. Cape Fear Wedding Minister Working in Coastal Carolina as an Ordained Wedding Minister, I hear from a lot of brides about this problem - finding a minister who matches up well with them.
Here's what Julie said in an email  she sent along with ten wedding day pictures:
Reverend Dale,
Words cannot express how much we appreciate the wonderful wedding ceremony you performed for us.
Jason and Julia Potter5,  Cape Fear Wedding Minister
We were nervous about making all our plans from afar but you guided us every step of the way. 
Several of the people who witnessed our vows commented to us that it was the most relaxed but meaningful wedding they had ever attended.  Our vows brought tears to the eyes of all of our witnesses.  
You were there from beginning to end - from assisting us with choosing our vows to showing us how to position ourselves during the ceremony.  Thank you so very much.We plan on having you assist us when we renew our vows one day.  You helped make the most important day of our lives an even better one.      JULIE POTTER

Couples bring together mixed religious backgrounds or have no denominational affiliation.  Most do not belong to a church where they live.  So an officiant who can perform a non-denominational ceremony tops their wedding day list.
Traveling to a destination for your wedding means you have to search out your photographer or florist or DJ or your wedding venue.  Those wedding professionals can show you samples of their work as well as provide testimonies from couples who have used them.  You look until you find the ones that 'feel right' to you.  It should be the same for hiring an officiant.
Here's what one couple wrote to the minister who referred them to Cape Fear Wedding Minister:
Dr. Clarke,
I wanted to touch base with you and thank you very much for referring us to Rev. Dale Curtis.  We met with him this afternoon for lunch and we are both very excited!
He was a perfect match for us and we'd like to book him for our wedding!
Again, thank you and we are very pleased with Rev. Dale Curtis and look forward to working with him in the months to come.
Let me know if there is anything else we need to do to confirm the date.

There are many Wilmington NC Officiants. But the best way to get the inside scoop as you are doing your search is straight from the couples who have experienced this officiant.
Dr. Clarke, thank you so much for recommending Rev. Dale Curtis who married me and my husband on March 28, 2009.
Foley Carolina Beach Wedding, Cape Fear Wedding Minister It was a simple beach wedding with our kids there. It was awesome!
We could not have asked for a better officiant than Dale.
He communicated very well with me and even up to the minute we said "I DO"....
He was also kind enough to bring his wife Bettsy to be a witness for me.
When my husband, Jr, and I was dating, our kids went with us on our first date so that's why we chose to do it simple and include our kids in the Ceremony.
We want to thank you so much Dale for being such a wonderful person and by the way...our seashell is sitting on our coffee table in rememberance of you....

 Hey Rev Dale!
HollyHamesOnslowBeach, Cape Fear Wedding Minister I just wanted to thank you one more time. Our service was lovely! I'm kinda sad it's all over. I think my theory is true... The more things go wrong the better the marriage will be. It's only been a week, but so far it is wonderful! Thank you for being apart of our special day!!!
I attached a couple pictures for you.
It was nice to have met you! And your wife too!
