Two Beach Weddings, Same Beach, One Hour Apart OH YEAH!

Today was a lucky day for two couples and a lucky day for me. Both couples were staying at the Hilton Waterfront Beach Resort Huntington Beach. Both couples wanted a beach wedding, both from out of the area, one from Sacramento, and the other from the East Coast. But it was their desire to get married on the beach, and as it work out for me, it was on the same day, same beach! The first couple had a joyous Catholic Lite ceremony.

 

 

The second couple a nice Christian ceremony. While both couples ceremonies were so different in so many ways, the love they shared for each other, was so obvious, and evident. I love being barefoot in the sand helping couples exchange their vows, that’s what being a great Officiant is all about.

Roger’s Hawaiian Wedding and Total Eclipse of the Sun Wedding

They say the highest compliment you can pay to a performer is a standing ovation…..and Roger almost got it with his Hawaiian wedding on Saturday at the beautiful Point Fermin Lighthouse in San Pedro….. Not because it was a fantastic ceremony (which it was) or that the entire wedding party thought he did an amazing job (which he did), but because the company that the bride and groom hired to supply the chairs didn’t arrive till 5 minutes after the wedding was suppose to start !!! Roger, being the trooper he is, calmed the bride down and helped the frazzled chair guy unload the chairs and then it was wedding on !!! So almost a standing ovation because of no chairs !! Roger will take it as his own !!

Roger had a great wedding today at the always beautiful Nixon Library in Yorba Linda. It was a great day to get married except for one thing…… Today happens to be an annular eclipse of the sun which means the suns rays are very hard on the eyes and the entire wedding was set up facing the afternoon sun !! It was too late to change the venue direction, so with the entire wedding party shielding their eyes with their very handy wedding programs, Roger breezed thru the wedding !! Of course he didn’t have a problem with the sun, he was the ONLY person facing away from it !!!

Childhood Sweethearts Tie the Knot in a Spiritual Ceremony Officiated By Priscilla!

The Irvine Hilton was the location for the late afternoon nuptials of Viet and Natalie.

 

These two amazingly, talented young people met as children in karate class, and later, had lockers near each other in junior high school.

 

Even at that tender age, when their paths crossed, their hearts just knew this was it — they had found The One!

 

Now, he is a doctor of medicine, and she is a fashion industry professional, with their first home in Arizona.

 

So finally, after all these years, these two “twin hearts” made their union official, in a beautiful outdoor custom ceremony officiated by Priscilla.

 

As is the Vietnamese way, Viet and Natalie’s wedding festivities were enjoyed by a very large gathering of family, friends, and extended family.

 

Decked out in white, taupe, and natural colors, our bride and groom were bestowed much love upon their marriage by their community, as they also took a vow of communal support for these two and their life-time together.

 

Sweet, serious, spiritual and heartfelt was their ceremony and their personal vows, which launched them into their new life as husband and wife with great joy and fanfare, accompanied by the live sounds of a string trio.

 

Then, it was on to their party filled with games, props, and cultural honoring of the parents, the elders, and the bride and groom with advice and congratulations, and of course, wonderful food and drink.

A fantastic time was had by all.

Now, they can relax!
