Great Officiant Greg had the honor of marrying Kylie and Ramin Amely at the picturesque Long Beach Recreation Golf course on Friday, August 19, 2016.  Recreation Park 18, otherwise known as “Big Rec Golf Course,” is a classic Billy Bell-designed Long Beach golf course layout and is one of the oldest and most popular courses in Southern California, originally designed back in 1910. Recreation Park’s clubhouse is a historical landmark nestled in the trees among beautiful rolling hills, and is a fantastic venue for weddings.  It is perfectly designed for a “ceremony on the green”, and then a short walk to the historic clubhouse, patio and reception.  Lots of free (close) parking is a great bonus as well!

The happy bride and groom just looked gorgeous!  They chose the Comedic Ceremony which was customized by Great Officiant Greg.  Although a very funny ceremony, Greg kept it loving, heartfelt and happy.  Kylie and Ramin, as well as their friends and family really loved the ceremony!

After the “formal” part of the ceremony, the happy couple and friends and family had a wonderful reception and dinner at the clubhouse.  Everyone had a great time!

All of us at Great Officiants wish Kylie and Ramin all our best wishes for their happy married life together.

A Golf Course Resort Wedding for Great Officiant Greg!

 

20160515_174201
Great Officiant Greg had the honor and pleasure of marrying Robert and Rita Bont at the beautiful SkyLinks Golf Course on Sunday, May 15, 2016.  The course and club, located “across the street” from the Long Beach Airport (Known as Daughtery Field in the Donald Douglas days and named a City of Long Beach Cultural Heritage Landmark in 1990), made it easy for the bride’s grandfather to fly from Istanbul, Turkey for the wedding!  What a great joy!

The Christian Ceremony, customized by Great Officiant Greg was religious but fun and filled with happiness.  The outdoor setting with the gorgeous waterfall and acres and acres of green links of the course makes a wonderful site for a wedding. Of course, the happy couple and the wedding party on golf carts after the ceremony left for a “secret” spot for pictures.

Many thanks to Sidney DeLancy, the coordinator at SkyLinks and the sound coordinator DJ Ceaser Flores for their help and assistance with the beautiful wedding.

All of us at Great Officiants wish Rita and Robert all the joy, love and happiness in their married life together!

As You Wish

IMG_20160520_181016798
The Diamond Bar Golf Course was beautifully decorated on May 20, for the wedding of Joe Gotti and Leah DeMarco.  But nobody except the bride and groom themselves expected the ceremony to be led by the Impressive Clergyman from “The Princess Bride.” In fact, references to the movie embellished the whole ceremony where parallels arose in telling the guests this adventurous couple’s own unique love story, evoking much laughter but also bringing many poignant tears. The couple even invented a new Unity ceremony, the Unity Cocktail, which they shared immediately before the vows.

Congratulations to Anna KcKinney and Joseph “Ian” Schiffman on their March 19, 2016 wedding at the Talega Golf Club in San Clemente, CA

Anna & Joe S. - 03.19.16
Congratulations to Anna KcKinney and Joseph “Ian” Schiffman on their March 19, 2016 wedding at the Talega Golf Club in San Clemente, CA.  The day started off cloudy but turned out to be a great California day.  A perfect day for a “perfect “ wedding.  The scenery, the setting, the guests, the music, the coordinators, the photographers and videographers (and let’s not forget the food and drink staff).  Their personal vows were perfect.  Although they didn’t add anything special to the ceremony the entire ceremony was SPECIAL – from the first kiss that they “snuck” in upon Anna’s entrance to the second kiss (first official kiss as husband and wife) at the end of the ceremony.  My best to the happy couple who are reading this from the beach in Hawaii!

Congratulations to Justine Sosa & Miguel Caro on their October 18, 2015 wedding at Mountain Meadows in Pomona, CA.

Wendy & Anthony N. - 10.17.15
Congratulations to Justine Sosa & Miguel Caro on their October 18, 2015 wedding at Mountain Meadows in Pomona, CA.  It was a beautiful outdoor ceremony with a light wind blowing.  It was slightly overcast but the sun did shine on their special day – it was a refreshing break from the heat.  Guests were comfortable as they sat back and enjoyed the ceremony, anticipating the great food and wonderful time to follow!  My best to the new couple.

A Beautifully Decorated Ceremony from the Heart at Coyote Hills Golf Club in Fullerton

suvin1
Justin and Angela had nowhere to turn, they were looking for a traditional Indian ceremony, fused with some traditional American customs, and a reading from the Bible. Many Hindu Pundits even turned them down because they had tattoos.

This truly saddened me.

In this day and age, there was still discrimination against how someone looked or how they chose to live their lives. Suvin representing Great Officiants, was more than happy to help this beautiful couple.

At the beautiful Coyote Hills Golf Club, I provided a traditional ceremony, in full garb, starting with a prayer, a garland exchange, a unity candle, and ending with their custom written vows.

They laughed at the appropriate and well placed jokes, they cried at the romantic elements, they smiled at the love being shared.

“You May Now Place The Ring On The……Middle Finger” ?

middlefingerroger
Roger married a really fun couple Mike & Iris this last weekend at the Diamond Bar Golf Course.  When Roger met with Mike & Iris to plan the ceremony, Mike pointed out that Roger would have to change the way he instructed them to put on the weddings rings because Mike was missing two of his fingers on his left hand, his ring finger and his last finger, which meant that the wedding ring would have to go on his middle finger.  Roger, always a trooper, said no problem and that he could handle it.  But Mike wanted him to do one better and have fun with it.  All his friends and family have been teasing Mike about it for years so after putting the ring on, Roger asked the couple to hold up their hands and show off their rings and of course, Mike got to give the entire audience his “finger” to show off his ring !  It was an amazing wedding and a lot of fun.

Notice in the below picture all the bridal party are holding up three fingers in support of Mike !
