Roger had the honor of marrying Jeff & Carmay at the always so wonderful Old Ranch Country Club in Seal Beach. Ā This venue is always a crowd favorite and they once again did just that. Ā Everything was spot on and the wedding was an intimate, one of a kind ceremony.

A Beautiful Day at the Bel-air Bay.

Image

On a glorious Saturday afternoon I had the honor and pleasure of oļ¬ƒciating at The Bel Air Bay club. This private over 100 year old club is truly old California. Spanish Moorish style, overlooking the sparkling Paciļ¬c Ocean Calvin and Helen got married in ultimate style. Every thing about this event was absolutely perfect. Trina Schmidt and her staļ¬€ are no doubt professional with years of experience. We had 170 guests .

Our ceremony was custom designed to their liking a beautiful blend of Christian and Buddhists. Lighthearted yet sincere, they chose to compose their own vows. My ļ¬rst time working with a translator. Ms. Vy Huyen Hoang is a very skilled translator. She translated our whole ceremony to Vietnamese.

We also had the pleasure of listening to a fabulous trio of string instruments gently playing in the background. Angelā€™s I say WOW ! They had a beautiful group of friends in their bridal party including their two adorable doggies dressed in wedding attire. Our awesome public notary on staļ¬€ Al-X came from Long Beach to hand delivered the Marriage Certiļ¬cate .

We are the only company in California allowed to issue this document other than the register recorder county clerk. Such a huge plus to have this privilege for our clients. Fast and easy . Of course the evening was full of love and laughter eating drinking and dancing . I thank this beautiful couple and wish them all great things in life . Thank you for choosing Great oļ¬ƒciants and me Oļ¬ƒciant Lisa Smith.

Octavio has a bilingual Catholic ceremony at the quiet cannon

Fernando & Veronica's wedding took place at Quiet Cannon in Montebello. This is a great venue because you can have an outdoor ceremony in a beautiful setting and an indoor reception so you and you guests are not hot throughout the day. 

 

Their ceremony was catholic and bilingual. The couple also asked me to incorporate the Lasso ritual which was draped over their shoulders by Veronica's aunt and grandmother. 

 

Her bridesmaids were wearing long black dresses with red high heels which was very dramatic and they all looked absolutely gorgeous. This is not the most common combination for weddings but in my opinion it really looks great!

 

Fernando and Veronica, thank you for giving me the opportunity to officiate your wedding! I'm truly blessed and wish you both all the blessings in the World!

This was a Grand Wedding at the Grand in Long Beach

Crystal and Carlos celebrated their wedding day with a fun filled ceremony and almost 200 guests. Their ceremony site at the grand in long beach was beautiful and their reception room was spectacular.

During their ceremony they did a lei exchange and had to readers come up and do Bible verses, they presented roses to their moms and each of them came up with three I do's that the other had to agree to and they were very funny.

I got to work with Carmen Fuentes at expressionary events.

Everything flowed perfectly and I even played a little practical joke on them and their guests and they loved it.

Frank clocks a triple digit wedding

Congratulations to Jenny Nemeth & Victor Anaya on their October 4, 2014 wedding at the Historic Cottage at San Clemente State Beach in San Clemente, CA.  The ceremony went great, the bride and groom were “glowing,” the music was great, the guests were happy (as happy as they could be); comfortable?  Maybe not, as the temperature entered three digits.  The beautiful view of the ocean and the slight breeze helped us to forget the heat!

Jennifer & Victor A. - 10.04.14
