A Very Emotional and Loving Wedding

rogerkellyemalee
Roger was honored to marry Kelly & Emalee this last weekend at the unbelievable Terranea, one of the most spectacular ocean view resorts here in Southern California.  The wedding was on the bluff over looking the ocean and the alter was covered in Magnolia flowers in remembrance of Kelly’s brother who had passed on.  So before even starting the ceremony, Roger had a brief moment of silence for his brother and then led the ceremony to a beautiful conclusion !!  It was both emotional and loving !!

Nina and Todd were joined together by officiant Stephen in a beautiful commitment ceremony Friday, April 15. The couple exchanged their vows on the great lawn of Pelican Hill Resort in front of 125 guests. Following the ring exchange and during the kiss, a dozen white doves were released out over the blue Pacific. A lovely conclusion to the happy couple’s ceremony, but a fitting beginning for their life together.

A Threepeat for Greg

Officiant Greg had the honor of marrying Glenn and Renee at the fabulous Terranea Resort in Rancho Palos Verdes on September 27th, 2014.  The ceremony was held on the lawn directly outside the happy couple's gorgeous ocean-view bungalow at the resort. 

The weather was perfect and the view of the Pacific Ocean was the perfect backdrop for the ceremony.  Glenn looked handsome in his Hawaiian-style shirt and Renee was beautiful in her wedding dress.

Greg's wife Beth, also an Officiant, supplied the flowers, Renee's bouquet and Glenn's Ti Leaf Lei.  She also was the "guest musician", playing the Conch shell in the Hawaiian custom prior to the ceremony.  The blowing of the Conch shell signals the beginning of a new voyage, as well as scaring off evil spirits (and troublesome relatives).

Renee and Glenn's family, friends and relatives greatly enjoyed the ceremony and reception.  All were very happy and full of fun and jubilation.  They were all truly great and fun people.

Greg, Beth and all the Officiants and staff at Great Officiants congratulate Renee and Glenn on their marriage, and wish them much Love and happiness in their future together.

Officiant Greg had the honor of marrying Alexander and Stephanie at the beautiful Tustin Ranch Golf Club on October 4, 2014.  The ceremony was held in the garden overlooking the golf course with a fabulous view. 

The weather was perfect, but a little hot!  Stephanie was stunning in her wedding dress and Alexander was very handsome in his tuxedo. 

The couple exchanged personal vows which were very heartfelt and dear.  Greg's ceremony was fun and romantic as always. Many of the happy couple's guests complemented him on how much they enjoyed the ceremony.

All of Stephanie and Alexander's friends and relatives had a great time, and I am sure the fun continued at their reception held at the Tustin Ranch Golf Club.

Thanks to Kim Herbert, the wedding coordinator at the Tustin Ranch Golf Club, for her professional assistance and help.

Greg and all the Officiants and staff at Great Officiants congratulate Stephanie and Alexander on their marriage, and wish them much Love and happiness in their future together.

Officiant Greg had the honor of marrying Melissa and Robert at the striking Cannons Restaurant in Dana Point, California on October 18th, 2014.  The ceremony was outside with the most commanding view of Dana Point harbor and the beautiful blue Pacific Ocean.  

The weather was absolutely perfect, period.  What a wonderful venue.  A stunning view for the ceremony, perfect weather and the reception is in the same location! 

Melissa was beautiful in her wedding dress and Robert was very handsome and dashing in his tuxedo. 

Greg's ceremony was fun and romantic as always.  The  ceremony went very well except for a few stubborn butterflies during their release.  That was great fun.  Many of the happy couple's guests complemented Greg on how much they enjoyed the ceremony.

All of Melissa and Rob's family (many who had traveled from Missouri for the wedding) and friends had a great time, and I'm sure the fun continued at their reception at Cannons. 

Thanks to Lisa at Cannons for her for her professional assistance and help.

Greg and all the Officiants and staff at Great Officiants congratulate Melissa and Robert on their marriage, and wish them much Love and happiness in their future together.

Another Great Testimonial From One of Our Couples!

 Thank you Lora and David for the kind words below!

“Alan Katz performed our ceremony with professionalism, reverence, respect for our wishes, while creating a relaxed atmosphere. Before

terranea-resort-palos-verdes-wedding-0529
meeting Alan, and based on video’s and other testimonies on his website we were concerned that Alan would be ‘the show’, performing the ceremony without the reverence we wanted.

Before the wedding via a call I directly expressed our concerns to Alan, he seemed to understand and assured me he wouldn’t be ‘the show’. He was right. Alan performed the ceremony with appropriate reverence, was extremely professional (with pauses, words, and tone relaxing my bride) and imperceptibly teed up the photographer for imminent photo opportunities.”

Dancing Down the Aisle with Alex and Stephanie

On November 9, 2013, I celebrated Alex’s and Stephanie’s wedding ceremony at the Pala Mesa Resort in Fallbrook.  It’s  an isolated resort with a beautiful set up for the wedding ceremonies. It has a wonderful waterfall in the background with tropical plants and a large church bell concealed in the gazebo’s ceiling.

They were a great couple with a great sense of humor. Stephanie customized the ceremony to her likeness, and it turned out great! Everyone participated in the ceremony making it an enjoyable event. After they kissed, the bell rang, the music started, and Alex and Stephanie dance away down the aisle followed by the bridal party and the celebration began.
