Gazebo wedding

We did a beautiful ceremony in the gazebo at Quiet Cannon. Great venue!!!

Ben and Martha  are truly soulmates!

I was more involved with them from the moment we met up until their ceremony than I normally am with other couples due to some family matters they went through and got to literally fall in love with them.

Like people say now-a-days #relationshipgoals !!!!!!

Roessler Point Palos Verdes California May 2017

Wow what a hidden gem. Overlooking the Pacific Ocean, Lisa Smith of Great Officiants had the pleasure of performing the nuptials for DG and Mariah it was a very chilly misty day however everybody gathered under the gazebo and created a very warm environment for this lovely couple joined by family from the Bay Area and close friends DG and Mariah  tied the knot. Both DG and Mariah are so in love, I don’t think they even knew anybody else was there. The ceremony was very heartfelt they chose to write their own very special  vows . And just as I pronounce them husband-and-wife a beautiful cool breeze blew the clouds away and there was the sun wishing DG a Mariah a lifetime of love peace health and happiness congratulations to this happy couple.

A Homecoming Wedding………

Roger had the pleasure of marrying Mike & Michelle this last weekend at the gazebo at Roessler Point in Palos Verdes Estates.  If you have not had the pleasure of visiting this little gem overlooking the pacific, you are missing out.  It was a small gathering, maybe 20 people in all.  Our couple, Mike & Michelle flew out from Seattle to marry at the Gazebo because it was a homecoming for Mike.  You see, Mike grew up in the Palos Verdes area and has very fond memories of his childhood there.  So what better place to marry the woman of your dreams !!  So as Mike & Michelle pledged their vows to each other this last weekend, they overlooked the beautiful Pacific, but also Mike’s childhood…..  It was a great day.
r,

Tik and Mia Sealed the Deal at Averill Park Gazebo by Suvin

20160710_154054

Tik and Mia are such a wonderful couple. They just gave birth to a beautiful child, and wanted to be legally married. They drove down from West Covina and enjoyed the cool breeze at the gorgeous Averill Park Gazebo while surrounded by their close family and friends. I even learned some Chinese to start the ceremony: Dajia Hao (Hello everyone!)

We assisted them by having one of our notaries Shari issue the marriage license, and Suvin provided a beautiful ceremony.

Mia was so happy after the ceremony, she wanted to take a selfie with me.

A Wedding at the Gazebo by Las Brisas in Laguna Beach

IMG_4020
What a cloud-studded ocean view it was!  The gazebo by Las Brisas Restaurant in Laguna jutted out over the surf, perfect for Victor Szabo and Beatrice Villareal to begin their married life together.  Led by Rev.Dr.Gary Barmore (recommended to them by Great Officiants) and surrounded by family and friends, the bride’s father escorted his daughter into the altar of earth, sky and sea.  Musical friends of the couple sang the song from Twilight, “I will Love You for a Thousand Years.” After the ceremony, the couple reminded Rev.Gary to always remember them because when they rehearsed the vows in  his Costa Mesa home, Victor’s Eastern European ears miss-heard the phrase “I give you all my tomorrows” and said to his novia Latina — a bit confused but in earnest — “I give you all my tamales.”  After a good laugh, their officiant shared some other humorous incidents from sacred ceremonies.  A joyous bond was established, and it certainly  showed during the very personal and professional wedding.

Octavio Performs a Wedding at Disneyland Hotel’s Rose Court Garden

IMG_0490
Carrie & Fernando's wedding took place at Disneyland Hotel's Rose Court Garden. This venue is absolutely beautiful as you can see from the picture. Even though it was a hot day the ceremony took place inside the gazebo so the couple and I were not hot at all and there was a very nice breeze.

We did our "My Favorite" ceremony with a few catholic characteristics added to it such as 1st Corinthians, John 4: 7-12, and A wedding prayer at the end. We also added the sand ceremony but instead of using sand I customized that tradition and rewrote it to make it for a Lego heart. The couple built a red Lego heart with their initials in white. We separated the heart in half and when we got to that portion of the ceremony instead of pouring their sands into the main container the united the heart making it complete which symbolized that uniting their lives completes both of their hearts.

This was truly a beautiful ceremony and I love when my couples get creative with different traditions and add-ins that we can provide. Carrie & Fernando I wish you guys nothing but love in all the blessings in the world! Keep letting your inner childs come out and play!
