Susie and Shaun get married at the Plaza de Magdalena in San Juan Capistrano

Plaza de Magdalena in San Juan Capistrano provided a cozy setting — out of the brisk winter weather — for the guests of Susie Chang and Shaun Wilson.  The wedding ceremony reflected their deep respect and love for the gathered family and friends, who in return, showered their affirmation upon the couple when Rev. Gary Barmore asked the guests, “Do you promise to be loving and supportive, caring and encouraging of these two this day and for all the days and years to come? If so, signify by saying WE WILL.”   The ceremony included laughter, tears, promises and love, unfolding just as Gary — of Great Officiants — planned with Shaun and Susie when they met in his home.  On 01/15/2018 the couple will open the sealed Wine Box, read personal notes composed on their wedding day, recall all that has taken place, and celebrate all this is yet to come.

A Walk on Beach Ceremony in Long Beach for Rev. Gary

img_3167
In a bayside ceremony led by Rev. Dr. Gary Barmore, Kristi and Amir pledged their eternal love and faithful commitment in marriage.  They composed their own vows, expressed before God and a few cherished guests.  Great Officiants suggested their minister as well as the venue — a lovely spot at the end of the Belmont Shore peninsula in Long Beach.  The few rain-drops that fell on this late October nuptial felt like the very kiss of God’s blessing.

A Beach Ceremony at Little Corona Del Mar in Newport Beach by Rev. Gary

img_3086
If you live in Minnesota and wish to get married in the most beautiful spot on earth, you come to “Little Corona del Mar” in Newport Beach, and that’s just what Great Officiants recommended to Anna King and Greg Davis. They and their three “blended” children came to SoCal for theme-park exploration and, most importantly, their sacred vows of marriage.  Rev. Dr. Gary Barmore, also recommended by Great Officiants, brought the blessing of God upon their love and commitment to life together, in a natural cathedral of spectacular rock formations, crashing surf and blue sky.  Following the Sunday morning ceremony, they asked Pastor Barmore, as a long-time local, if it would rain on their afternoon of activities before heading back home on Monday.  He said, “no rain” —  and thereby will always be regarded by Greg and Anna as a wonderful minister but a poor prognosticator of weather, given the rainy day it became.

A Wedding at the Heritage Museum in Santa Ana by Rev. Gary

img_3078
Megan Carlin and Jonathon Burton, as well as twenty guests, flew from Seattle to Southern California for the wedding of their dreams.  Great Officiants found the perfect venue for them — the Victorian Home at the Heritage Museum in Santa Ana — as well as the inspiration of Rev. Dr. Gary Barmore to plan with them and lead them in a ceremony that included faith, fun and love forevermore.  (One of those embarrassing-but-endearing nuptial moments occurred when, after the bride’s brother escorted her down the aisle, the officiant whispered, “Where is your bouquet?”  Her cousin ran up the stairs to retrieve the bouquet from the mansion’s parlor and it was all beautiful!)   The couple and their entourage enjoyed Disneyland and Universal Studios on this destination event, and are returning to the northwest full of precious memories and wedding bands on their clasped hands!

Sergio Montelongo and Ana Arciniega brought family and friends together on Sunday afternoon 9/4 for a beautiful wedding and a joyous celebration at the White House in Anaheim.  Situated in an amusement mini-park and looking just like the D.C. White House, once inside the venue’s building and grounds there is privacy and elegance.  Sergio and Ana found their minister Rev. Dr. Gary Barmore through Great Officiants, and sure enough, the ceremony was all — and more — than they could have ever dreamed.  He met with them in his Costa Mesa home, which facilitated getting acquainted and the planning of the ceremony.  Gary was pleased that the couple trusted him to express some of the service in Spanish.  Sergio and Ana Montelongo are headed for great things in their respective professions and in their married life.

Jeremy and Nancy knew how to bring off the wedding they dreamed of — at a cost they could afford.   Her brother in Long Beach volunteered his home and fit seventy-five chairs into the backyard.  Family and friends provided delicious food and drink, enjoyed after the backyard was transformed with dining tables.  And best of all, they said, was the dynamic and romantic ceremony led by Rev Dr Gary Barmore, whom they engaged through Great Officiants.  These photos reveal the joy and appreciation felt by Jeremy and his Anderson family, as well as by Nancy and her Chekos family.  Now, on the voyage of a loving lifetime, following the most wonderful day of their life, this beautiful and beloved pair go forth — without having drained their financial resources.  A wise and happy couple!
