Stephanie and Erick tied the knot at Twin Oaks House & Gardens in San Marcos. This venue is now officially on my top five list due to its breathtakingly gorgeous gardens, pathways, fountains, and all around vintage look!

Erick & Stephanie are just so sweet! I fell in love with them from the moment we met a year before their wedding! I designed a Spanish Catholic ceremony with the Mothers Rose presentation, the lasso ritual, and the coin ceremony. Like most couples they were a little nervous before the ceremony since it was going to be a bit longer than usual and they didn't want to have to memorize anything. I eased their nerves by telling them that there was absolutely nothing they needed to memorize or remember as I would walk them and guide them throughout the entire ceremony step-by-step. At the end they were so happy and grateful and thanked me for making it so easy for them.

It was truly a blessing for me to be able to officiate their wedding ceremony! Erick and Stephanie I wish you both nothing but love and all the blessings in the world! Thank you so much for giving me the honor of officiating your wedding! God bless you guys!

Octavio Performs Three Weddings in One Day

octavio1

Alcibiades & Vanessa's wedding was the first one of the three wedding day. They tied the knot at the one and only Saddle Peak Lodge in Calabasas.

We worked together, like I do with most of my couples, in designing the perfect ceremony for them. The end product was a bilingual catholic ceremony with the Lasso tradition.

The Lasso was performed by the couple's "Tias", which means aunts in Spanish. Traditionally it is performed by the godmother and godfather of the wedding, but nowadays we can be performed by home ever the couple wishes.

Alcibiades & Vanessa looked absolutely stunning! And as you can see in the picture they could not have been happier! I fell in love with them from the minute we met!

Alcibiades & Vanessa, I wish you guys all the blessings in the world!

Ana & Paola were my second wedding of the day. They tied the knot at Madilyn Clark Studios in North Hollywood. They have a beautiful little garden in the back that is very quiet and private.

We work together to design the ceremony the day desired. The end result was a Spanish Catholic ceremony with the traditions of the Coins and the Lasso. We also did the mothers Rose presentation, but in this case the roses were presented to Paola's parents since Anna's parents were not present. This just goes to show that our add-ins can be customized to what your situation is.

They are such a beautiful couple, and I am absolutely honored to have officiated their ceremony!

Anna and Paola I wish you girls all the blessings in the world! 

PS I loved your bridal party!

WOW!!! I simply have no words to describe the energy of this couple and the entire wedding itself. But I will try!

Craig & Jessica were my 3rd wedding of the day. They tied the knot at Maravilla Gardens in Camarillo. You would think we would be tired after three weddings but this is what we do! And this is what we live for! Three wedding days are my all time favorite!

Craig and Jessica not only have the best energy in the world, but they are also so in love! They are my definition of the perfect couple! They have been together for 7 1/2 years and their wedding just marks another milestone in their already successful relationship.

I am literally in love with this couple! There is so much I can say about them. But I will limit my words to this, when it's my turn to get married I want my story to be exactly like theirs!

Craig & Jessica I wish you all the blessings in the world, all my love, and all the happiness there is.

Octavio performs a ceremony at the Knott’s Berry Farm Hotel

Sofia and Christopher got married at the Knott's Berry Farm hotel in Buena Park. For their ceremony we combined our Buddhist ceremony with a few characteristics of our Catholic ceremony. They wanted something along the spiritual lines to represent them so I changed the words of our Buddhist ceremony to make no reference to that religion and make it more spiritual.

The few Catholic characteristics that we incorporated in the ceremony were 1st Corinthians, John chapter 4: 7-12, and a wedding prayer towards the end of the ceremony before the closing comments. I always tell my couples they don't need to stick to the ceremonies that we have predesigned even though they are all absolutely beautiful! They are more than welcome ask me to combine different portions of different ceremonies in order to customize their own and represent them the best way possible.

I truly enjoyed officiating Christopher and Sofia's ceremony and it was such an honor for me to do so! We were in touch constantly along the way until the morning of their ceremony when Chris and I texted each other back-and-forth. I was so excited for them I couldn't wait to see them!

Christopher and Sofia I wish you all the best in this new journey you have both embarked on. My best wishes and all the blessings in the world to you guys!!!

Octavio performs two lovely bilingual ceremonies

Jesus & Jasmine had their ceremony and reception at a relative's house in Lynwood. All their families were there to celebrate their 
Love!

This was their official non-official ceremony. I legally married them but they have a 2nd ceremony planned at their church. They chose our Civil ceremony which I translated to Spanish for everyone to understand. Even though it's a short ceremony we always make it very beautiful and special.

Jasmine & Jose I wish you all the blessings in the World!!!

Oscar & Lorraine are an amazing couple! They've been together for 23 years and have a very handsome son who was a groom's man. They were very happy to have their son be a part of their wedding, planning, and old enough to appreciate and enjoy it to the fullest.

We did a bilingual Catholic ceremony in which the two bible passages and wedding prayer were in Spanish with everything else in English.

The happy couple looked absolutely amazing and glowing with love and joy. This was truly a ceremony for me to remember forever!

Oscar & Lorraine, the best is yet to come and I wish you all the blessings in the World!!!

Octavio does a multicultural wedding

Noah & Valerie tied the knot at Eden Garden Bar & Grill in Pasadena. This was a multicultural ceremony as we incorporated a couple of Catholic and Jewish traditions.

 

We signed the Ketubah and Noah broke the glass at the end of the ceremony. We also did the Lasso ritual, a wedding prayer, and the popular mothers rose presentation which they decided to include their grandmothers as well.

 

The ceremony was also bilingual so both families could understand and be a part of it.

 

It was truly an awesome experience!

 

Noah and Valerie I wish you all the blessings in the World!!!
