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!

This Wedding Had One Individual That Objected….

rogerjs1
Roger married Jason & Lanie at the always wonderful Calamigos Ranch this last Saturday and they brought their adorable little dog Bizou to the ceremony.  The ceremony was fantastic !  A beautiful, romantic setting with a fitting ceremony to match…  The only problem is that their loving dog Bizou wanted his mommy & daddy and was not at all happy about sitting just as a guest for the wedding!  He wanted to be part of the wedding…. So, he proceeded to bark his disapproval, not of the wedding but him not being a part of it !  Still all in all, his barking added to the festivities !

A Malibu Estate Wedding for Great Officiant Greg!

20160604_164543
Great Officiant Greg had the distinct honor and good fortune of marrying Jared and Sydney Unger on Saturday, June 4th 2016 at the unbelievable Villa Sancti Di Bella Vista Estate and Winery in Malibu, California.  The only thing one can say about this venue is “OMG”!  It is the sort of property one only sees in the movies!  The home, grounds, waterfalls, pool, and vineyard were just fabulous!  No wonder it was voted the number one wedding venue by The Knot!  The pictures speak for themselves.  Truly, the lifestyle of the rich and famous.

Sydney looked so beautiful in her wedding dress, and Jared was sharp and handsome!  The happy couple just loved the ceremony customized by Great Officiant Greg.  Many friends and family commented how much they enjoyed themselves!

In the “it’s a very small world” category, Greg discovered that he and the Bride’s Father John both get their hair cut by the same stylist, Ashley Olson of One Luv Salon in Seal Beach, California!  John and Great Officiant Greg hit it off very well!

Many thanks to Susan, who owns the Estate with her husband.  She was kind enough to share the rich history of the property with Great Officiant Greg.  From native American burial ground, barracks during World War II, to the two additional bedrooms added above the garage for Prince William and Prince Harry when Princess Diana and Dodi Fayed had an option to purchase the Estate just prior to their tragic deaths, it is a very interesting history indeed.

All of us at Great Officiants wish Jared and Sydney much love and happiness in their life together as one.

From Nashville,Tennessee to Malibu, California

Woody performed a beautiful walk on ceremony in Malibu for this wonderful couple.

They are originally from California, so they traveled all the way from Nashville to get married, toes in the sand, at Point Dume.

With the waves crashing along the rocks, and the cliff as a backdrop, the couple exchanged vows and i dos.

They had a couple’s rose exchange, a perfect first gift for their married life together.

Lana Farfan from Caught in the Moment Photography captured this beautiful moment.

A Wizard Of Oz Happy Ending With Their Dog Toto…….

rogernolan1
This last Sunday Roger married a wonderful couple Nolan & Susu at the always amazing Calamigos Ranch in Malibu.  If you have never wandered the grounds at this wonderful venue, make plans to do so !  They are always so professional and will bend over backwards to make sure their brides and grooms have a wonderful wedding.  And it was not only a wonderful wedding but also very emotional too.  You see, they had told Roger that they were going have their loving dog Toto participate in their wedding.  Roger, being a giant dog fan, was all on board.  But about a week or so before the wedding, their poor little dog Toto was attacked by a coyote.  They were able to save him but they tearfully told Roger that he would not be able to attend due to his injuries and could Roger re-write the ceremony without him……..  Well, there is a special God that looks out for moments like this and somehow Toto recuperated quicker that anybody imagined.  They called Roger the night before and asked is there was anyway that he could add Toto back into the ceremony and even though Roger had printed out the version without Toto, he gladly re-wrote it that very night, re-printed it out just to make sure that this miracle was celebrated !  It was an amazing ceremony and Toto got a standing ovation in his “tuxedo” !   Ruff !!  The couple loved the ceremony !!

2 Great Officiants, 2 Great Couples 1 Great Beach in Malibu. 

SHARI and I booked booked a beach wedding on Point Dume in Malibu on the same day an hour apart. So we carpooled through early morning traffic and arrived at 930 am. There was almost no one at the beach and it was a perfect combo morning waves crashing against the rocks.

Shari had the first wedding at 10am. They showed up promptly dressed to the nines. She issued them their license and ventured down to the point where some dolphins and whales were cruising by in the backdrop.

Alan’s 11 o’clock couple did not show up till 1230. They had so many mishaps along the way. Their phones both died, they had car trouble and she had accidentally put your hand into some road tar that she couldn’t get off. Making it to the beach was the ultimate test for their marriage. If they could make it there with all the crazy stuff that went on to get them there and they were destined to be together. And in the end they gave each other and amazing kiss and we’re happy that they made it and endured their crazy adventure.

And they all liver happily ever after.
