I would just ask, when we talked to the pastor at our church about getting married part of the application was writing down your number once choice of pastor to officiate. If that pastor was available they would officiate and if not then someone else would do it. I would just ask nicely and say you really enjoy that priest’s style and would be honored if he would officiate your wedding. I would be surprised if you’re the first person to ever ask for someone specific.
