A Walk on Beach Ceremony in Long Beach for Rev. Gary

img_3167
In a bayside ceremony led by Rev. Dr. Gary Barmore, Kristi and Amir pledged their eternal love and faithful commitment in marriage.  They composed their own vows, expressed before God and a few cherished guests.  Great Officiants suggested their minister as well as the venue — a lovely spot at the end of the Belmont Shore peninsula in Long Beach.  The few rain-drops that fell on this late October nuptial felt like the very kiss of God’s blessing.

Claudia & Scott celebrated their marriage at a lovely setting by the seashore, at the Point Vicente Interpretive Center in Palos Verdes.  Arriving early, Rev. Ralph stopped to enjoy the setting, and greet some of the arriving guests.  The couple’s 2-year-old daughter Lola was the flower girl.  As the ceremony began, Rev. Ralph asked Lola if she would promise to help make the family a happy and healthy one, and Lola responded by bursting into tears!  We think that meant “yes.”  After the ceremony, Claudia & Scott posed with Rev. Ralph and it was “all smiles” after that!

A Beach Ceremony at Little Corona Del Mar in Newport Beach by Rev. Gary

img_3086
If you live in Minnesota and wish to get married in the most beautiful spot on earth, you come to “Little Corona del Mar” in Newport Beach, and that’s just what Great Officiants recommended to Anna King and Greg Davis. They and their three “blended” children came to SoCal for theme-park exploration and, most importantly, their sacred vows of marriage.  Rev. Dr. Gary Barmore, also recommended by Great Officiants, brought the blessing of God upon their love and commitment to life together, in a natural cathedral of spectacular rock formations, crashing surf and blue sky.  Following the Sunday morning ceremony, they asked Pastor Barmore, as a long-time local, if it would rain on their afternoon of activities before heading back home on Monday.  He said, “no rain” —  and thereby will always be regarded by Greg and Anna as a wonderful minister but a poor prognosticator of weather, given the rainy day it became.

Wesley performed a Beautiful Ceremony at the Villa in San Juan Capistrano

img_5554
Step back in time into this Spanish-style Villa.

It was truly breath-taking. Jayme and Janeen had a classic spanish  guitarist play them down the aisle. The Villa in the small spanish town of San Juan Capistrano looked the part, covered in ivy, a large mahogony door with handmade door knockers to welcome guests. And even though Jayme is a hardcore Yankees fan (he’s from the East Coast) and Janeen is a huge Giants fan, their unity was truly heartfelt. They even included their 7 year old Boston Terrier, Yankee, into the ceremony. It was truly a treat for all.

Congratulations to Kathleen Rivera & Tommy Zecena on their October 15, 2016 wedding at the Avenue of The Arts Hotel in Costa Mesa, CA.  It was a beautiful October day in southern California with the perfect blend of weather and guests for a perfect wedding!  The ceremony started on time with the bride making the l o n g walk down the path from the opposite side of the lake to the ceremony site, slowly making her way to the aisle, for another journey to her waiting groom and officiant!  We quickly got into a meaningful ceremony with inspiring words and humor with a beautiful lake and fountain in the background.  My best to the happy couple as they begin their journey together!

A Wedding at the Heritage Museum in Santa Ana by Rev. Gary

img_3078
Megan Carlin and Jonathon Burton, as well as twenty guests, flew from Seattle to Southern California for the wedding of their dreams.  Great Officiants found the perfect venue for them — the Victorian Home at the Heritage Museum in Santa Ana — as well as the inspiration of Rev. Dr. Gary Barmore to plan with them and lead them in a ceremony that included faith, fun and love forevermore.  (One of those embarrassing-but-endearing nuptial moments occurred when, after the bride’s brother escorted her down the aisle, the officiant whispered, “Where is your bouquet?”  Her cousin ran up the stairs to retrieve the bouquet from the mansion’s parlor and it was all beautiful!)   The couple and their entourage enjoyed Disneyland and Universal Studios on this destination event, and are returning to the northwest full of precious memories and wedding bands on their clasped hands!
