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.

Wesley performed a Beautiful Ceremony at the Villa in San Juan Capistrano

Step back in time into this Spanish-style Villa.

It was truly breath-taking. Jayme and Janeen had a classic spanish  guitarist play them down the aisle. The Villa in the small spanish town of San Juan Capistrano looked the part, covered in ivy, a large mahogony door with handmade door knockers to welcome guests. And even though Jayme is a hardcore Yankees fan (he’s from the East Coast) and Janeen is a huge Giants fan, their unity was truly heartfelt. They even included their 7 year old Boston Terrier, Yankee, into the ceremony. It was truly a treat for all.

Black and Tan – Beer Unity wedding ceremony at Franciscan Gardens in San Juan Capistrano

When Sean and Ashley were discussing their wedding ceremony with me they wanted to do something different. Being that they enjoyed beer, they chose to do a black and tan beer blending unity ceremony.

Black and tan is customarily done by mixing two beers together Harp and Guiness. when poured together properly they separate leaving the dark beer on the bottom and a lighter beer on top and then when the class is tilted and drank both parts flow onto your palate.

So during the ceremony they blend of the two together and drank it.

Then similar to the wine box and love letter ceremony they placed a bottle of Harp and Guiness into a box along with some love letters that they wrote the night before.

everything in the ceremony just turned out so wonderful and special and the couple and all the guests loved it.

A Beautiful Wedding at the Historic and Beautiful Serra Plaza in San Juan Capistrano

Officiant Greg had the wonderful honor of marrying John and Yulie Park on Saturday, March 282015 at the historic and beautiful Serra Plaza in San Juan Capistrano, California. 

What a beautiful venue! Located very close to the Mission San Juan Capistrano, it was constructed in the "Mission Style" with a central courtyard and fountain. Historic tile frescos depicted the story of Father Junipero Serra life's work building the Missions in California. 

The central courtyard was the most perfect spot for the wedding. The fountain, the stringed quartet, as well as perfect weather made John and Yulie's special day the best it could possibly be!

Yulie's wedding dress was very elegant with a long train that made her so very beautiful. John's gray tux looked very sharp. All the bridesmaids and groomsmen looked marvelous. 

The ceremony, customized by Officiant Greg was loving, warm heartfelt, and just a little funny. The ceremony included the "blending of the sands" which was very special. The couple presented their own personal vows, which were very sweet, loving and romantic.  John and Julie, as well as their dear family and friends really enjoyed the wedding.

Special thanks to Jenny Chang of Rocknevents for her expert help and assistance.  

All of us at Great Officiants congratulates John and Yulie and wish them much love and happiness in their future together.

Nikki and Randy had a fairly traditional ceremony at The Villa in San Juan Capistrano, a WONDERFUL venue!  We were interrupted by the bells ringing at the mission so we took a short break until that ended.  They did however add something personal – a pinky promise.  This is something they have done since early in their relationship.  They made their promises hooked pinkies and kiss hands.  So romantic!
