A Cute Little Ceremony in Our Cute Little Wedding Chapel

Djedje & Terence & A Mauricio
Terence confided that initially his fiancé, Djedje, had some concerns when scheduling an appointment in early November with Great Officiants to have their Marriage solemnized at the Cute Little Wedding Chapel on Atlantic Avenue.  He was concerned that they might be confronted by someone with attitudes to same-sex marriage similar to those held by a certain Kentucky county clerk. Both grooms, however, were relieved upon meeting A. Mauricio Lubong who, without hesitation, cheerfully accepted their License and afterwards counted it a personal pleasure to officiate their Wedding.

A few days after their ceremony, the newlyweds submitted an online review that started with, “A.Mauricio was a wonderful official. He was funny and made us feel at ease on this stressful day;” and concluded with “A.Mauricio was great and I would recommend him to anyone getting married.”

Thanksgiving Day wedding ceremony on the beach

 Josephine and Daniel figured that since all the family was in town for Thanksgiving it was the perfect time to get married.

Daniel is a Marine stationed at Camp Pendleton. They meant on their friends blind date. They got to know each other and fell in love.

They chose the beach in San Clemente by the pier.

Josephine is seven months pregnant and excited about starting a new family.

I performed a modified Catholic style ceremony while they stood in the heart that I dug into the sand.

Their family was delighted and excited about this new family coming together.

We honor our military families and hope that they have a wonderful life together.

Gail and Anthony were married at the rustic, Spanish-style Wedgewood at the Retreat in Corona, CA. We began the ceremony so the sun could slowly set and illuminate their tear-filled eyes as they finalized their vows. After being together for over 12 years, they nearly jumped for joy after they shared the kiss that showed how deeply they cared for each other. Their friends and family in attendance also got a little rowdy in showing their joy for the newlyweds!

Jorge & Daniel’s wedding and reception took place at Luminarias in Monterey Park

Jorge & Daniel’s wedding and reception took place at Luminarias in Monterey Park. Both were held inside one of their ball rooms which allowed us to perform the unity candle, one of my favorite traditions!

We adapted our Catholic lite ceremony to their needs by customizing it and translating it to Spanish.

Before we began the ceremony I had the opportunity to sit down and spend some quality time with Jorge’s mom, Marta, who is the sweetest and kindest lady ever! She kept insisting that I stayed for the reception, which I would’ve loved, but had a rehearsal to get to.

It truly is a higher level experience when we have some extra time to bond with family members and friends!

Jorge and Daniel I wish you both all the blessings in the world and send you all my love! Thank you for allowing me to be part of your big day!

An intimate and Emotional Wedding

Roger 28 1
Roger married Tai & Anh this last weekend at the amazing 28 Restaurant in Irvine.  It was to be an intimate wedding and both of them had cautioned Roger that this wedding was going to be an emotional one and it certainly was.  Not only did Roger supply well placed laughs but also knew when to hold for those emotional moments.  There was not a dry eye in the house.  All the guest laughed and cried.  It was really a memorable wedding for Roger as well.

Suvin performed a beautiful walk on ceremony on Little Corona del Mar Beach in Newport Beach. The sun was shining, a cool breeze and love was in the air. The happy couple arrived with their children. Little Corona Beach is the perfect spot for an intimate walk on ceremony, private and beautiful. Complete with a heart in the sand, it was a perfect ceremony on the beach. Congrats!
