Clear Skies Ahead at Lake Oak Meadows

On Sunday, September 29th at 5pm Maria Chaveli Garcia and Errol Rice declared themselves to be a family before their families, friends and God.  Their wedding, which took place at Lake Oak Meadows was celebrated by Father Jacob Munhoz.

After what threatened to be a rainy rehearsal the day before, the day of the wedding provided a clear blue sky, a cool breeze, and a perfect temperature for a late September wedding.  Maria and Errol gathered family and friends from all over to witness their marriage.  The couple chose a shorter ceremony but also wanted to include the traditional Catholic elements of the exchange of arras (coins) which symbolize the material commitment they are making to care for one another for the rest of their lives, the lazo which symbolizes the unbreakable bond they are forming through their vows, and the veil which symbolizes purity and God’s loving protection over their household.  They wrote their own beautiful vows and also included the vows of the Church.

3 different weddings 3 different outfits

A fun day of weddings today but a wardrobe free for all.
The first one was at the Langham in Pasadena at their Japanese Gardens. It was a bit more conservative in dress and tone but still fun.

The next one was a Hawaiian ceremony on the cliffs above Palos Verdes on a private estate which was very fun and brought in a lot of Hawaiian customs so I dressed in Hawaiian style attire.

The third wedding was a Filipino wedding and I wore my Barong and brought my cord, veil and coins to use in the ceremony. The ceremony took place at the Villa in Westminster.

It wasn’t a simple day bit it sure was fun.
