Cesar & Rene got married at Quiet Cannon in Montebello.

Their wedding at Quiet Cannon was absolutely beautiful! They had so many groomsmen and bridesmaids that made it look so formal!

We designed a bilingual ceremony. With some English and Spanish elements. The wedding prayer at the end of the ceremony was done bilingual. Every line I said in Spanish I would proceed with another line in English.

It was the first time I had ever done a bilingual wedding prayer. And it came out beautifully! This just goes to show you that we literally will customize your ceremony according to your needs! No questions asked and no extra fee! It's all about you and we celebrate your day! Do not hesitate to ask for what you want!

Cesar & Rene I wish you all the blessings in the world. You both have a soft spot in my heart and I will forever love you!


An Intimate Wedding at the Beautiful and Rustic Loft on Pine in Long Beach

Wesley and Kelly decided to have a very intimate wedding at the beautiful and rustic Loft on Pine in Long Beach with only close friends and family. It was simple yet elegant, and they chose the resonant "Hallelujah" sung by Jeff Buckley to set the tone of this touching wedding. The father of the bride, George, told me when we first met that I better explain to him his part in the wedding before I have to go searching for him crying in a corner somewhere with a drink in his hand. Everyone had such a wonderful time and by the end of the ceremony, there wasn't a dry eye in the place. They had the perfect ceremony.


A Catholic Style at Wedgewood Golf Club in Fallbrook

Congratulations to Candise Ibanez & Carlo Oliveri on their April 18, 2015 wedding at the Wedgewood Banquet Center at the Golf Club of California in Fallbrook, CA.  This traditional catholic wedding went exactly as planned (a little longer than usual, but that was expected).  Megan did a great job singing the “Ave Maria” as did Giovanni with his reading of 1 Corinthians.  The coordinator, DJ, and photographer were all professional on “on point!”  The weather cooperated (the candles did not).  It was an elegant event.

Dr. Who Wedding Ceremony Follows Love Across Time

Helen & Anthony got Married at Coto De Caza Golf and Racket Club.

During our planning meeting we were discussing the ceremony ideas and we were joking about Dr. Who.

I asked them if They wanted me to dress up as Dr Who and bring in some cool quotes to the ceremony?

They were all excited about it.

I had the whole costume except for the Fez.

On my way to the wedding I stopped off at a costume shop and got a Fez and my costume was complete.

When the bride saw me dressed as the 11th Doctor Who she had the biggest smile across her face.

I did the entire ceremony with an English Accent and added a bunch of different Dr. Who quotes for the ceremony.

I started with:

"Hello, I'm the Doctor. I'm a Time Lord. I'm from the planet Gallifrey in the Constellation of Kasterborous. I'm 903 years old, and I'm the man who's gonna join this couple in Marriage"

“There’s a lot of things you need to get across this universe. Warp drive… wormhole refractors… You know the thing you need most of all? You need a hand to hold.”
“I'll be a story in your head. That's okay. We're all stories in the end. Just make it a good one, eh? "

“There’s a lot of things you need to get across this universe. Warp drive… wormhole refractors… You know the thing you need most of all? You need a hand to hold.”

Some of the guests had no idea who Dr. Who was so the quotes went over their heads  at the ceremony.

At the End not even an angry Darlek could hold them apart.

Terminally ill Groom exchanges vows in Leasure World Seal Beach Wedding 

Carol and David wanted to be married today. As any couple they are hoping for the wonderful elaborate wedding but due to David's terminal cancer their options were severely limited. 


When they called me and explain the situation I gave them an option that worked for them. 

I delivered the marriage license to them at their home in Leisure World. Surrounded by some of their family we did a simple ceremony. 

I only charged them for the marriage license delivery and gave them a free wedding ceremony.

Being a cancer survivor myself I have a big place in my heart for couples in this situation.

We hope  that every moment they have left is filled with the love I saw that they share. 

You Odyssey This Review!

The Odyssey in Granada Hills is a great venue! Frank performed a ceremony there back in March, and the couple had these nice words to say:

"We chose Great Officiants at the recommendation of our wedding coordinator. They answered any and all questions we had before actually choosing their services. Their website also helped us as it had all the information we could need to get in touch with their many officiants; they helped us choose our officiant -Frank Meola- and I can say that they are worth it!

Before we actually hired Frank, Alan and his team made sure that we spoke to them and Frank to make sure that their services were what we wanted, needed, and could afford. After they got us in contact with one of their officiants, we met Frank and he made sure that we felt comfortable with him and worked with us to add the perfect touch to our wedding. We were able to customize our wedding and we are very satisfied with the outcome. I am very glad I came across with such a great recommendation

My husband and I had our wedding on March 14, 2015 at The Odyssey in Granada Hills, CA. They were very understanding to the traveling distance, our ceremony started on time, and made sure that the ceremony went according to plans. Thanks to Frank, we had a very romantic and fun wedding. My husband, our guests, and I laughed throughout the ceremony. It felt very magical and I am glad we chose their services. Our guests are even recommending their services to their acquaintances."


Enchanted Manor in Valley Village is Truly Enchanted

Georgia Durante owns this wonderful estate in the valley and uses it for weddings and vacation rentals. This lovely couple Clint and Kay came from Texas and chose Enchanted Manor to have their nuptials. The ceremony took place in front of the waterfalls by the pool. They chose the fun comedic ceremony and as a bonus I threw in a sand ceremony. It was just the two of them, a photographer, and Georgia. Even though it was just the two of them, their love and happiness surrounded the entire estate. From California to Texas, we wish them a big yee-haw!
