Dreams Take Flight at Tivoli Too!

 

025

 

The exquisite Tivoli Too! in Laguna Beach, was the spectacular setting for last night’s celebration of two amazing women becoming legal domestic partners.

Great Officiant Priscilla Munson, led the proceedings as our brides exchanged personal vows before their closest family and friends with their two children at their side.  This semi-religious, sacred ceremony included the brides offering a flower dedication to the Virgin Mary while one sang “Ave Maria” accompanied by a 5 piece mariachi band!

It was a tender, beautiful prayer for her blessings on their new life in song.  With the lush backdrop of gorgeous foliage, waterfalls, angelic statuary, and even a bird who swooped in to bless our brides, their 45-minute custom ceremony was filled with heart-felt poems, prayers, a community vow, a family vow and sand ceremony with their children. What a beautiful, romantic, deeply personal way to be ushered into their new partnership!  And then it was on to the party!

Great review from a Filipino wedding ceremony

photo1
Alan Katz from Great Officiants was our wedding ceremony officiant, and he did a wonderful job. Our ceremony was a Filipino wedding ceremony, which included a veil, cord, and coins. When speaking with Alan, he said that he was familiar with the Filipino wedding traditions. He even knew some Tagalog! Because it was difficult to coordinate a day and time to meet before the wedding ceremony, we spoke with Alan via Skype, and we quickly learned that it was easy to talk to Alan. He was very funny and friendly, but he knew when it was time to be serious and professional. On the day of our wedding, he arrived early, and gave me and my husband a “pep talk” of what to expect for our ceremony, and calmed our nerves before the wedding. The ceremony went smoothly and did not last too long. He kept the tone of the ceremony light and upbeat; and he even got the guests laughing. We would definitely recommend Alan Katz from Great Officiants to any bride and groom!
