A Happy Couple Frank Married at the Turnip Rose Promenade in Costa Mesa

Natalie & Allan R. - 04.11.15
Frank recieved this amazing review from this lovely couple from the Turnip Rose Promenade in Costa Mesa:

"We just received your package! Thank you so much for everything! We weren't expecting to have our ceremony included, and we love that idea!! It's a very nice keepsake to look back through the years.

Before the wedding, we were really worried when we heard our previous officiant was no longer able to perform our ceremony, but thinking back we see it as a blessing in disguise.

From the beginning you were always open to help us out and had our best interests. Even after the negotiations you were able to commit to what our previous officiant promised, and we appreciate it.

When we first met we were very impressed with how organized you were. We thought you were very professional and took your job seriously, which we liked because this was a serious moment in our lives. You helped us make decisions in our ceremony choices and you offered sound advice on every event, by sending samples and tips to help us.

The day of the wedding felt like a blink of an eye! The ceremony was written so beautifully! We loved how you kept it light and kept our guests entertained, by you charisma and charm. Thank you for guiding us where we needed to be during the ceremony and performing all the things we wanted, from the love letter box to the kids vows and letting us recite our own vows (great idea about emailing it to you before otherwise we may have forgot them, ha!).

It was a truly perfect beautiful day and we couldn't have been more pleased with your services. Thank you for being a part of our special day!

Sincerely,

Natalie and Allan Rodolfo"

An Emotional Wedding…..

er1

Roger had a wonderful wedding last weekend for an adorable couple Jesse & Annie. They had been planning the entire wedding themselves and by the time the wedding day came around, they were pretty stressed. So Roger suggested prior to the ceremony for Jesse & Annie to reflect on the big picture of that day. That they would be officially married and anything else that day didn’t matter. That seemed to help along with scattered humor during the ceremony. At the end of the day there were lots of laughs and tears of happiness.

 

Here is the review they posted

Annie said… 

This newlywed is sending a special thank you for Great Officiant for sending us Roger Lundblade to unite our love as one. Alan, head of Great Officiant wasted no time in contacting me to give us an officiant that we can relate to. Roger Lundblade, our offiicinat wed us on April 17, 2005. We were looking for someone who was professional, kind, and funny. Roger was all of the above and more. It did not bother him one bit when I emailed him 5 times because this bride had so many questions. My husband and I could not have ask for a better person to combine our love together. Roger Lundblade, you truly made this couple in love on that day even more. Thank you!

Jacqueline & Sherman later wrote, "Wow, thank you SO much for being a part of our special day. We could not have asked for a better officiant. You spoke so clearly and really gave emotion and honesty to our ceremony. Sherman and I couldn't stop talking about how great you were … We will certainly pass your name on if any friends or family need a wedding officiant. Many blessings to you and I hope business is booming for you this year!"

UP…………….

When Roger first met Constant & Jennifer, they asked him to design their wedding ceremony around the romantic love story animated movie “UP”. Roger, knowing that they were going to marry in the backyard of their home, suggested to recreate the iconic picture of balloons attached to the roof of their home and that is what they did! The ceremony was filled with wonderful references and moments from the movie and the wedding was a great success!!

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.  

Candise & Carlo O. - 04.18.15
