Proving that even in our current climate, you can still have a beautiful and safe ceremony.
Our Presiding officiant Alan Katz has married couples in a variety of interesting and unconventional places, so when he heard that this couple was looking to have their ceremony officiated on the helipad of the Sofitel Hotel in Beverly Hills, he initially wondered why they chose such a unique location. The answer? The absolutely breath-taking cityscape that will adorn their wedding photos for the rest of their lives. The sunlit cityline emphasizing the brightest qualities of their love for one-another.
Looking for a fun, safe, officiant? We can help you with that.
Riece Bailey and Ian Mueller traveled from Kansas City to the California coast for a private and picturesque ceremony. Great Officiants of Long Beach suggested the perfect site, secured their wedding license, suggested a photographer and engaged Rev Dr Gary Barmore to lead the marriage ceremony. The love each has for the other was beautifully expressed in their exchange of vows, and Rev Gary read a touching letter sent to them from Ian’s mother in Kansas. After a few more days of celebrating and seeing west coast sites, the couple will return to Kansas City to build their life together. God Bless.
Wesley was honored to get to officiate Steve and Suzie’s Beach Wedding at Little Corona Del Mar. They initially had planned their baby shower the day before, and since all the family was in town, they thought why not knock it all out in one weekend! It was a wonderfully intimate ceremony with their close friends and family. They had gorgeous jagged rocks behind them during the ceremony as the water cascaded off of them. Suzie and Steve have been together for over 13 years, so they were eager to finally tie the knot. Steve got emotional during the repeating of the vows, which in turn made everyone cry. It was such an incredible love that they shared and was also supported by the love of their friends and family. And afterward, they even got Grandpa to climb up to the top of a giant boulder for pictures!
Caroline Ramirez and Robert Ahrendt selected as their minister Rev Dr Gary Barmore, provided through the wedding services of Great Officiants. Meeting at Gary’s Costa Mesa home for planning and building the inter-personal relationship, they indicated that their ceremony would take place at Robert’s Aunt Carol’s home in Corona. The good reverend drove on July 13 to what he expected to be aunt Carol’s modest but nice track home, yet instead found himself arriving at the rainbow-shaped driveway of a vast ranch-style home with a huge back yard and a magnificent gazebo beyond a lawn-surrounded pool. And wow, it was perfect for this attractive and exciting, yet quite unassuming, couple. With their five daughters adding beauty and grace to the processional, Caroline and Robert pledged their undying love within an outdoor paradise.
Ashley and Philip chose the Rustic and quietly tucked away Temecula Creek Inn as the destination for their romantic wedding. Once guests arrived, they were taken in a shuttle to an even quieter and remote location, beautifully decorated and tranquil so their guests could truly enjoy themselves.
The ceremony was unplugged, so Wesley informed the guests to keep their phones put away and be present with Ashley and Philip as they were wed. Their genuine spark of love for each other was felt throughout the entire ceremony and on into the evening.
