Aloha from Fountain Valley?

When you think of a Hawaiian wedding you don’t traditionally think of Fountain Valley but that all changed with this wedding.

Morgan and Bryson exchanged their aloha in the beautiful garden at Mile Square Park Golf Course.

Starting with my blowing of the conch shell to signify the beginning of their journey they exchange delays blended the sand shared their vows in a beautiful loving ceremony.

Their flowers and leis were beautiful and their seating cards were mini pineapples with named attached to them.

They made me a nice testimonial afterwards.

Tattoo vows at the OC Mining Company

When Erin and Jack came in for their wedding meeting I saw that he was tatted up. I told them of the tattoo vows I wrote and the wanted it incorporated in their ceremony.

It goes something like this

Love is like a tattoo. You see it on the wall and you like it on your arm. It’s a little painful at first but you and do her. Everyone admires your new tattoo.
But then as the years go on your tattoo starts to fade and you wonder why did I get this and it’s a real pain to get rid of. But your tattoo, your love, will get brighter as the years go on and everyone’s going to wonder….. where can I get a tattoo, where can I get a love just like that.

Their ceremony was a blast. Their guests were very excited and got all kinds of compliments after the ceremony.

Prayers on the beach.

A beach wedding can be a big affair with lots of friends and family or it can just be the two sharing your love by the crashing waves.

This beautiful couple decided they just wanted the 2 of them me and somebody to capture it on film.

This took place in Laguna Beach and it’s a beautiful beach and a nice hike down to it.

They shared their love and their vows and then at the end a wonderful prayer.

It doesn’t get much better than this.

A Bride Cuts all Ties with Her Father

A funny ceremony story shared by Rev. Ralph:

All eyes were on the radiant bride as her father escorted her down the aisle. They reached the altar and the waiting groom, the bride kissed her father and placed something in his hand.

The guests in the front pews responded with ripples of laughter. Even the priest smiled broadly.

As her father gave her away in marriage, the bride gave him back his credit card.
