Wedding and Marriage Ceremonies

About Minister Carla

Bilingual Wedding Officiant

I’m Minister/Wedding Officiant Carla Panzera with My Dream Ceremony. I originally started in the wedding industry in 2002 at the county recorder’s office in San Bernardino. For three years, I was the bilingual deputy of civil marriages and had performed over 2,600 weddings. I have issued marriage licenses, birth certificates, and currently hold a notary public license and have since 2006. In 2005, My Dream Ceremony was created to provide couples with an array of ceremonies in civil, spiritual, religious, non-religious, unity, same sex and assist in ceremony coordination or/and rehearsals. I also have done weddings in prisons for couples who are not able to travel. I speak both Spanish and English fluently. I can create wedding vows, unity vows and ring vows for couples who are seeking that special touch or customization. I obtained my ordained ministry license from American Marriage Ministries in Seattle, Washington.

From the Bay

I am originally from San Francisco but fell in love with the Inland Empire during my trip home from El Salvador. I obtained my education locally with a Business Administration Bachelor’s Degree from California State University, San Bernardino with an emphasis in Entrepreneur Management.

To tell you a little about my personal life. I am married to the love of my life and have a little girl. We have two dogs – Jesse and Lukey, we have a Senegal parrot named Mylow. Lastly, we have a Panchito who likes to sit in as a witness from time to time. Panchito is a gecko that lives in my office. 

With that said, I’m here to serve you without judgment. Keep in mind that I am a minister not a saint so please feel free to contact me with any questions, concerns or to book an appointment with me. I’m happy to hear from you.
