Weddings up and down the coast from Malibu to Del Mar. 

Image

It is a good thing that I drive a Prius. I put a lot of miles on my car going from Wedding to Wedding  this weekend I had weddings all over the place and it was a blast. From a simple beach wedding to a wedding at our new wedding chapel to the beautifully designed weddings I did it all.

Beach weddings on the beach or overlooking the water, are very special to me. And when I get an opportunity to do one that makes me very happy. When I’m surrounded by trees and laughter that makes me very happy. So being the guy who does weddings in Southern California, I’m a happy guy.

Here’s some pictures from the wedding as I did this weekend  and a couple testimonials.

Candlelit ceremony due to blackout in our Cute Little Wedding Chapel

These words just came in from this couple.

“Words cannot express what our time with you meant to us. We will always remember our candlelight ceremony thanks to your artisitic eye.

Thank you,

 

Don & Christy”

Last night the building we are in was part of the massive blackout in Downtown Long Beach.

Rather than cancelling the wedding I decided to make it so romantic and do the ceremony by candle light.

Issuing them the marriage license using my cell phone flashlite was a challenge but we made it through it. Then into the chapel where I performed a wonderfully romantic ceremony for just the 2 of them.

The results could not have been more amazing. it made a great memory for both them and me.

Blackout in Long Beach can’t stop love from shining through. 

Image

Today in downtown Long Beach 10 square block area went dark.
A power outage and exploding manholes disrupted the normal activities plunging them into darkness.

Marilyn and Wayne were scheduled for an evening wedding in our cute little chapel, however our chapel was also affected by the blackout. Luckily the ambient light outdoors was enough to make it a romantic adventure.

Surrounded by their friends and family they repeated their vows exchanged the rings and gave each other a most romantic kiss.

We all wish them the brightest future.

An Emotionally Packed Wedding at the Sky Room Chapel in Long Beach

The Sky Room wedding facility in the historic Breaker's building was luminous, as was the bride, Marla Espinoza, as she made her way down the aisle to the arms of Dino Chavez to the tune, "At Last." Everyone laughed at the "Slightly Comic" ceremony with a few planned twists, and more than a few cried as well during a touching Memory Candle lighting.

A Cute Little Wedding at Our Cute Little Wedding Chapel in Long Beach

This was a fun, lovely couple. They came in yesterday looking to get married. They were clearly in love, and interested in a small, intimate get together. We set them up with a beautiful sand ceremony, and a chapel photo package.

Today, they came in for their licensing and ceremony.They were fun, excited, and most importantly, in love. Alan performed a beautiful and fun ceremony, complete with a ring exchange, sand ceremony, and custom vows. Afterwards, we took some fun and memorable photos. Watch the process, from license to garter!

Octavio performs a romantic ceremony on Valentine’s Day

What a better day to celebrate the union in marriage than Valentines Day?! Flavia & Edwin got married at our beautiful and cozy Chapel in Long Beach.

Due to Edwin's busy schedule since he's in the military we didn't get a chance to meet beforehand. But that is never an issue. With several phone conversations and emails I was able to design a Spanish ceremony exactly like the couple desired.

Their families all gathered for the special occasion and you could really feel their love and support! It truly was very special!

Edwin and Flavia I wish you all the blessings in the World! And thank you Edwin for your service to this country!!!!

A Harley pulls up to my Wedding Chapel with a Couple to get Married

The exciting part about owing a wedding chapel is the variety of people who walk through the door. Today was that special day. Outside the door a Harley pulls up vrooming its engine and off jumps Susan and Richard. Susan in her white dress and Richard in his Harley best.

They sat at my desk and I issued them their Marriage License then instead of going into the chapel they did it on their HOG.

I was happy to oblige. It was a quick sweet ceremony and I incorporated some Easy Rider quips into it.

After I pronounced them a couple they rode off into the sunset together.
