Congratulations to Laura Ortega & Cory McDermott on their September 9, 2016 wedding at The Canyon Crest Country Club in Riverside, CA.  Once the wind died down it was the perfect day for a wedding – temperature just right, right on the green with a great view.  Cocktail hour was upstairs, outside overlooking the ceremony site with the same great view.  The bride was anxious and ready to go and the ceremony started on time precisely as scheduled.  Everything was just perfect (which was extra special considering that due to unexpected circumstances the venue was changed just three weeks prior to the ceremony).  All vendors did an exceptional job.

Congratulations to Tehra Yosifi & James Kanooni on their July 23, 2016 wedding at the beautiful Woodland Hills Country Club in Woodland Hills, CA

Tehra & James K. - 07.23.16
Congratulations to Tehra Yosifi & James Kanooni on their July 23, 2016 wedding at the beautiful Woodland Hills Country Club in Woodland Hills, CA.  It would be an understatement to say it was a HOT day in Los Angeles (especially with the fires in neighboring Santa Clarita).  There were no issues and all went well.  The ceremony was well-coordinated, started on time and exceeded the couples expectations!  The coordinator, Rebecca was great and left nothing to the imagination.  While the ceremony was simple, the addition of the Sand Ceremony, the perfect blend of humor and seriousness and an eloquent-looking couple and bridal party resulted in a beautiful ceremony that everyone enjoyed!

Another Seacliff County Club Wedding for Great Officiant Greg!

20160625_162649
Great Officiant Greg had the honor and pleasure of marrying Beau and Haylee Bergevin on Saturday, June 25, 2016 at the beautiful Seacliff Country Club in Huntington Beach, California. The private club, owned by American Golf, is a wonderful venue for a classy, elegant and fun wedding and reception.

Beau and his groomsmen were very handsome and sharp in their black tuxedos, and Haylee was just beautiful and elegant in her wedding dress, and the bridesmaids were beautiful too!

Beau and Haylee selected “My Favorite Ceremony” which was customized by Great Officiant Greg.  The loving ceremony was laced with just enough humor to keep the ceremony fun.  Haylee was beside herself with tears of joy, and Beau was so happy.  Haylee steadied herself by replying “Hell yes” when asked by Great Officiant Greg “Do you take Beau to be your Husband”?  (That does qualify as a correct two-word answer, in lieu of “I Do”)  Everyone had a great time!

Many of Beau and Haylee’s friends commented on how much they enjoyed the ceremony, that it was the best they have ever experienced, and how enjoyable, loving and fun it was!

Many thanks to the staff at Seacliff Country Club for their expert help and support, and to Johnathan the DJ and sound expert for his assistance.

All of us at Great Officiants wish Beau and Haylee much love and happiness in their life together.

On a beautiful June 10 at California Country Club in Whittier, William Smith and Ashley Lidwin pledged their lives together in marriage

IMG_2982
On a beautiful June 10 at California Country Club in Whittier, William Smith and Ashley Lidwin pledged their lives together in marriage.  They have lived for some time in Pennsylvania, but family and friends mostly reside in Southern California. So after securing the beautiful outdoor venue, they wondered who could they find as qualified clergy to lead their ceremony.  Turning to Great Officiants, they chose to engage the ministerial services of Rev Dr Gary Barmore, and sure enough, their vision of those most important fifteen minutes of their life was truly fulfilled.  Great Officiants even took care of acquiring for Will and Ashley a California marriage license.  They return to the East Coast with photos and memories, best wishes and a lifetime of love together.

An Emotional Ceremony at the Quiet Cannon in Montebello

20160521_175736
Pat and Henry were such a fun loving couple. Since the first time we met, they had a great sense of humor, and they were obviously madly in love. They requested a Christian inspired ceremony, and i was happy to perform their ceremony at the Quiet Cannon in Montebello.

Richard of Mijo Entertainment provided an awesome speaker with microphone, which ensured the successful delivery of my performance celebrating Pat and Henry’s love.

Instead of a guestbook, they had a canvas with some colors, requesting their guests to place their fingerprint and signature on their tree of love. During their hand blessing, I incorporated that not only are their fingers and lives joined in unity, but they have left their fingerprint on each other’s lives.

The ceremony brought laughs, tears, and love to the couple and their guests.

Congratulations to Carrie Barlow & Dr. Shawn Kaye on their May 14, 2016 wedding at the Aliso Viejo Country Club in Aliso Viejo, CA

Carrie & Shawn K. - 05.14.16
Congratulations to Carrie Barlow & Dr. Shawn Kaye on their May 14, 2016 wedding at the Aliso Viejo Country Club in Aliso Viejo, CA.  Double congratulations were in order as Shawn completed medical school at UCI and will receive his degree next week.  In addition to their wonderful life that lies ahead, Shawn will begin his residency at Stanford University.  It was the perfect day for a wedding with over 180 “on time” guests.  The ceremony went as planned with no delays or “glitches” of any kind, thanks to the great coordination of all the vendors and people involved with the execution of the ceremony.  What a team!  Everyone walked away with a smile on their face.  My best to Dr. Shawn and Nurse Carrie who pledge “to strive to make the world around them a better place!”

IMG_2801
For Lynette Wegley and Rick Ellis it was the 1964 Prom of Redondo Beach High School all over again, but BETTER!  They were married May 1, 2016 at the Los Verdes Golf Course Country Club in Rancho Palos Verdes, having each been happily married to another before “death did them part.”  Then Rick and Lynette found each other again, and Redondo Beach friends and family, as well as others from afar, joined the happy couple in the celebration of true love re-discovered.  Rev Dr Gary Barmore of Great Officiants planned with them the ceremony and led it to the delight and inspiration of all.
