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.
Roger was very excited to be marrying Daniel & Liz that last weekend. They had been at a few of his previous weddings and knew that they wanted him for their wedding. And what made this doubly special is that the wedding was being held at the Beverly Garland in Studio City just a couple miles from Roger’s house and the Beverly Garland is also a regular haunt for Roger and his family having had Thanksgiving dinners there on more than one occasion.
The only possible issue is that Daniel and Liz wanted streamers thrown by the guests as they walked down the aisle as husband & wife. The problem was that the venue doesn’t allow streamers !! And Roger only found this out as he was just walking up the aisle to perform the ceremony whispered to him by the wedding coordinator….. So at the end of the amazing ceremony, Roger made the announcement about the streamers but also everyone needed to pick up after themselves after the wedding……….Well that didn’t happen……… except for one groomsman………and Roger !!! It didn’t take long for the two of them to clean up and the groomsman was taken aback that the minister of the wedding was cleaning up too !! Roger…… A Great Officiant and Groundskeeper !!!
Roger has never officiated at the Anaheim Hills Golf Course but certainly looking forward to going there again. The grounds are beautiful and perfect for that intimate wedding! Roger was marrying Chris & Rachael, a fun loving couple who wanted not only a funny wedding but a hip one too. And Roger had his work cut out for him. He had to follow the flower girl, their one year old daughter Rayelynn who was “driving” the most tricked out Mercedes he has ever seen!! The crowd went crazy when she “drove” (via remote control) down the aisle. And Roger topped off this fantastic start with a very fun and funny wedding!
Wesley had the privilege of marrying Michael and Katy at the seaside Laguna Cliffs Marriott in Dana Point. Fate had its’ hand in their relationship from the beginning, all the way to the absolute perfect weather that day. When Katy and Michael were trying to set up their first date, they both had crazy busy schedules. The only day that was open for either of them was Valentine’s Day. Michael quickly learned of Katy’s love for musical theatre, and thankfully Michael likes to sing as much as Katy, so they make the perfect duet.

Megan Cai and Kevin Courtney, with friends and family cheering, recited their marriage vows at the Huntington Beach Hilton overlooking the great Pacific Ocean. In their long courtship, Kevin and Megan traveled across that ocean to her homeland of China ten times! With homes both in Irvine and Hawaii, of course, the trip to Asia is cut into two manageable halves, and the happy couple plan to keep flying around the globe to exotic locations. The weather was perfect for the ceremony, the harpist played beautifully, and Rev Gary Barmore of Great Officiants, according the the bride and groom, offered just the right words and feelings for the auspicious occasion.
This was a very quaint, intimate setting with just the right number of people in attendance. The couple was a fun loving couple and their ceremony was a fun and heartfelt display of warmth and love from the bridal party and the guests.
Their colors of blue and white highlighted the venue and made the smiles of the bride and groom come alive.
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.
