Congratulations to Mona Falcon & Scott Blyleven on their April Fool’s Day Wedding (April 1, 2017) at the Oak Creek Golf Club in Irvine, CA

Congratulations to Mona Falcon & Scott Blyleven on their April Fool’s Day Wedding (April 1, 2017) at the Oak Creek Golf Club in Irvine, CA.  It was a beautiful spring day with perfect weather.  The ceremony started on time and everything went as planned.  The setting was great with a slight wind blowing to keep guests comfortable.  The bridal party was professional and unveiled no April Fools’ Day pranks (at least not during the ceremony)!  Mr. “Perfect Timing” came through today for Ms. “On Time!”  Keep it up Scott.

Congratulations to Zoe Rahimi & Jason Nolen on their March 25, 2017 wedding at the Vibiana in Los Angeles, CA.

Congratulations to Zoe Rahimi & Jason Nolen on their March 25, 2017 wedding at the Vibiana in Los Angeles, CA.  The venue was breathtaking, for which pictures do not do justice.  It was a former church converted into an event center that retained the altar and church motif.  The altar area was complete white marble with marble flooring and stairs.  The brides runway was white marble planks.  It was a Persian wedding.  Although they did not have a traditional Persian ceremony, they did have a “huge” Persian Sofreh Aghd on display.  After the brides entry, I explained (for the benefit of the non-Persian guests) the significance and symbolism of the Sofreh Aghd.  I also delivered my open remarks in Farsi!  The couple made a rose presentation to their moms and replaced the traditional sand ceremony with a glass ceremony, which is similar to the sand ceremony except that glass crystals are used which are later blown into a personalized glass sculpture (bowl, vase, etc.).  The ceremony went flawless from start to finish with the perfect mix of seriousness, humor, laughter and some tears (of joy)!  I’m sure all 200+ guests had as great a time at the reception as I had officiating for such a great couple!  My very best for a great life together.

Congratulations to Chalon Kashey & Jacob Park on their March 18, 2017 wedding at the Mission Inn in Riverside, CA

Congratulations to Chalon Kashey & Jacob Park on their March 18, 2017 wedding at the Mission Inn in Riverside, CA.  It was an ideal day for a wedding at the Inn!  It was a simple, “no frills” but classy ceremony with the organist opening the ceremony and the bride’s entry and the DJ closing with the recessional.  The bride and groom sealed their kiss with their signature shot (straight up)!  Their personal vows were heartfelt and touching  I wish them both the best on the beginning of a wonderful journey together!

Congratulations to Renee Yip & Ken Chen on their March 11, 2017 wedding at the Hilton Universal City in Universal City, CA

Congratulations to Renee Yip & Ken Chen on their March 11, 2017 wedding at the Hilton Universal City in Universal City, CA.  It was a beautiful day for a ceremony on the rooftop terrace overlooking the city.  The string quartet added an eloquent touch for an already “classy” ceremony.  The “Ave Maria” during the Rose Presentation to Renee and Ken’s moms was a great choice.  Planner Jackie Tan and her team did a great job putting everything together with perfection.  My best to the newlyweds!

Congratulations to Kristie Beckman & Thomas Rinehart on their March 5, 2017 wedding at The Mitten Building in Redlands, CA

Congratulations to Kristie Beckman & Thomas Rinehart on their March 5, 2017 wedding at The Mitten Building in Redlands, CA.  The ceremony went exactly as planned with the “nervous ” groom managing to get through the ceremony in one piece!  He was breathing so heavy, we couldn’t keep the candles lit.  Kristie’s entrance was great as she entered right on queue with the Bagpipes.  They added the Sand Ceremony to the traditional ceremony for the perfect personal ceremony.  My best to the happy couple!

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.”
