Thanksgiving sunset wedding in Malibu gave me something to be thankful for

When you think of Thanksgiving you think of turkey, stuffing, family, friends and football. But not this couple all they were thinking about their love.

I met them on the beach at point dume in Malibu on my favorite spot. The waves crashing against the rocks, sun setting in the west it was a magical moment.

No Rain Delay for Roger’s wedding !

Roger’s wedding this last Saturday was at the truly beautiful Earl Burns Miller Japanese Gardens in Long Beach !!
The only problem was that it was pouring down rain while Roger was on his way to the wedding ! And with the gardens, you really need to have good weather to have them outside !! Well, luck was on Roger’s side… Just as he was pulling into the parking lot….the rain stopped, and stayed stopped throughout the whole wedding !! But as soon as Roger left and got back on the road, down came the rain !! Now that’s a good way to start a marriage !!

I Wish They All Could Be California Weddings!

I worked with Beth and our fabulous beach wedding team, to create the vision that our
November brides hoped for in Dana Point and Long Beach.

With crisp air, sunny skies and beautiful ocean views, what more can anyone ask for?

Only is Sunny Southern California would you have this splendid November wedding day with perfect weather!

See you on the beach!

Surprise vow renewal in Laguna Beach

I got a call several weeks ago from Ben who wanted to surprise his wife while he and the kids were on a vacation.

Patty had no clue as they walked into the gazebo surrounded by their kids friends and family.

I casually introduced myself and said hey let's have a wedding…..she was so surprised.

Dressed very casually in the gazebo they renewed their love and commitment to each other. I included the kids and they all hugged one out before I re-pronounce them as a couple.

She loved the surprise.

Eva gets a nice review for her bilingual wedding ceremony

As my bride is Colombian her English is limited so Allan suggested Eva to us as she is fluent in both English and Spanish. Eva crafted our vows to the brides desire and it was executed very nice.

Both the video of the wedding and the photos that Nick took we’re reasonably priced and we are glad that we did these two additions to our package.

Allan and his staff were very responsive and the communication was quick, effortless and simple. Both my wife and I recommend Allan and his staff, thank you all!

Another glowing review for our beach wedding division

I just got this review and thought I should share it.

For me, the wedding process was a long and rough one, until I found Alan. We originally planned the typical ceremony/hall combo wedding, but after many obstacles we went in another direction. My dream wedding was always a beach ceremony with a backyard reception, and when I found the Great Officiant website that dream began to come true. They offered a full beach wedding set up and take down for an amazingly affordable price. Also, they took care of all the necessary permits, which was a huge stress relief! The day of the ceremony, Alan brought multiple shirts and offered to change if I wanted him to, but his red shirt matched perfectly with our wedding colors. The ceremony was absolutely beautiful! Alan kept the ceremony romantic and fun. The symbolism and romantic words he used to describe our love story was perfect. Many of my guests loved the fact that ceremony was not traditional or boring. The two words they used to describe my wedding was beautiful and memorable, which is exactly how I dreamed my would be. I would highly recommend Great Officiants, especially if you’re having a beach ceremony. They make wedding beautiful, wonderful, and as stress-free as possible 🙂
