Bells ring at the Vineyards in Simi Valley

Andrew and Laurissa got married at the Vineyards in Simi Valley. I love this venue they got married down below in the garden and it was a picture-perfect day.
An element of the ceremony was the ringing of a bell. They rang the bell during the ceremony to symbolize their love. With the caveat that every time something exciting or something challenging happened in their lives they would ring a bell. No matter where they were in the world if they heard a bell ringing they would have to give each other a kiss.

Beautiful Couples Rose Presentation in Granada Hills- Wedding by Great Officiant Frank

Janet & Steve

Janet & Steve O. - 03.21.14

Congratulations to Janet Contreras and Steve Osiek on their March 21, 2014 wedding at the Odyssey Restaurant in Granada Hills, CA.  It was a beautiful evening on
the patio with an equally beautiful view.  Their personal gift to each
other of a single red rose symbolized their first of many gifts to each
other as husband and wife — the red rose being the universal symbol of “I
Love You!”

Our Great Officiant Octavio sweeps a couple off their feet with the jumping of the broom at the Reef in Long Beach.

Veronica & Jawuan’s wedding took place at The Reef. A beautiful restaurant overlooking the bay in Long Beach. It was a beautiful day and an even more beautiful setting. The decorations were spectacular. They also had a musician playing the harp throughout the entire ceremony which was beautiful.

They decided to do the broom jumping ritual which I had never done. The symbolism of it is awesome. Their energies throughout the ceremony was so loving. I could just feel the love they have for each other when they looked into each others’ eyes, WOW.

Veronica & Jawuan I wish you all the blessings in the world!

Great Officiant Anthony did a 2fer in the OC this weekend

20140322 MIchelle & Michael
So, Saturday Anthony was honored to be Officiant of record for both of these fine, small weddings!

First, Michelle and Michael (Mike) in Newport Beach. What was supposed to be a 10 +/- guest event turned into 40+!! Moved from Laguna to Newport 2X!! Finally landing on the beach just off the boardwalk, we stormed the beach and formed a big semi-circle. Opened with a prayer from Michell’s father. Included a sand pouring with the Michell’s children, Andrew, Casandra and Chrissy joining in.

Then, down to Oceanside!!

20140322 Erika Ashley AVY
Another on the beach ceremony with Erika and Ashley – and their one friend/witness Noah!

Timed it so kiss happened as the sun touched the water. (watched for the green flash but no one saw it) This was a short, basic ceremony but the energy, emotion from these two ladies was amazing!

Staying in small bungalow right on the edge of the beach, rocks, they had an a amazing view of the rest of the sunset while enjoying their first married toast! (It got cold quick and windy – got back to room fast after the kiss!)

Country Western Style Wedding Ceremony

country wedding
Lelani and Rod Wanted something special for their wedding. They wanted a country western style wedding with a saloon, horses a mechanical bull and barbeque. They got all this and much more at Star Ranch in Corona. I know Lelani for many years and was excited to do her ceremony.

I did the whole ceremony with a southern preacher drawl and it was so much fun. She had an awesome red dress and cowboy boots and the guys were all in hats and boots.

Check out the video below to see all the country fun.
