Congratulations to Natalie Rajasinghe & David Richards on their February 19, 2017 wedding at the Richard Nixon Presidential Library in Yorba Linda, CA

Congratulations to Natalie Rajasinghe & David Richards on their February 19, 2017 wedding at the Richard Nixon Presidential Library in Yorba Linda, CA.  Well, the weather sure had everyone guessing these past few days — Is the ceremony outside?  Do we setup inside?  Do we build an arc?  The coordinator Jenna decided not to build the arc but to prepare for an indoor ceremony if needed and we both agreed to allow for a possible late start.  But, no rain fell on Natalie and David’s happiest day of their lives or their 220+ guests.  AND, the ceremony started at the designated start time, precisely!  Their personal vows were heartfelt and very touching and the readings by Michael and Brian were inspirational.  David got through the roller coaster ride and Natalie agreed to eat all her food (had to be there to understand)!  After the ceremony, MANY family photos were taken.  My very best to Natalie and David for a great life together!

Congratulations to Colleen Tytula & Tim Manfro on their February 11, 2017 wedding at the Lake Arrowhead Resort & Spa in Lake Arrowhead, CA.

Congratulations to Colleen Tytula & Tim Manfro on their February 11, 2017 wedding at the Lake Arrowhead Resort & Spa in Lake Arrowhead, CA.  It was a great day in Lake Arrowhead.  The weather was perfect for this time of year — a little “brisk,” some snow on the ground and mountains, roads clear, nice “fresh, take a deep breath” winter air.  A little “nippy” during the ceremony, but heaters and blankets kept the guests warm and cozy!  The ceremony went as planned with a great view of the lake in the background.  The photographers were on point and the keyboard player/vocalist added a special touch to the ceremony.  My best to the new Mr. & Mrs. “Fro.”

Congratulations to Kristina Munz & Lawrence Koester on their January 7, 2017 at the Mission Inn in Riverside, CA.

Congratulations to Kristina Munz & Lawrence Koester on their January 7, 2017 at the Mission Inn in Riverside, CA.  It was an intimate ceremony in the beautiful chapel of St. Francis of Assisi.  They added the Unity Candle and had an organist for the ceremony music.  The organ always adds a special touch in the chapel as the sound echoes and amplifies throughout the building!  After the ceremony the couple and their 40-50 guests headed for cocktails and a great dinner as only the Mission Inn can present.

Congratulations to Siuna Morales & Neevon Esmaili on their November 19, 2016 wedding at the Oak Room at Calamigos Ranch in Malibu, CA

Congratulations to Siuna Morales & Neevon Esmaili on their November 19, 2016 wedding at the Oak Room at Calamigos Ranch in Malibu, CA.  It was a perfect day for a wedding in Malibu and the timing was just around sunset outdoors in front of a beautiful rock waterfall.  It was a traditional ceremony to which they added the “Love Lock Tree.”  Love Lock are a symbol of love and commitment which have been inspired by an ancient custom.  The custom was started in Europe in the early 2000’s where love padlocks were affixed to a fence, gate or bridge to symbolize a couples everlasting love.  In this ceremony, the locks are affixed to a metal Love Lock Tree.  Their parents also affixed their locks in support of the couples intent to marry.  It added a nice dimension to the ceremony!

Congratulations to Daniella De La Cal & Robert Kelly on their November 12, 2016 wedding at The Ebell Club in Long Beach, CA.  Everything went great – it was a simple ceremony with the couple reciting touching personal vows.  The ceremony was filled with both humor and seriousness (which was sometimes difficult to achieve due to Daniella and Robert’s great personalities and sense of humor).  But we managed to make sure the ceremony had the required doses of seriousness where it needed to be!  My best to the happy couple, who I’m sure are a perfect match for each other!

Congratulations to Mary Jimenez & Francisco Maestas on their October 24, 2016 wedding at the Mission Inn in Riverside, CA.  It was a rainy Monday evening but the sun was shining in the Chapel of St. Francis of Assisi as this beautiful Houston couple made their way down the aisle. It was a small intimate ceremony with close family and friends and a sand ceremony that included their children Abigail and Logan.  Everyone left with a smile on their face and “singing in the rain,” although the rain let up long enough for outdoor pictures after the ceremony.

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!
