A Beautiful & Intimate Wedding at Crescent Bay Park

Image

Roger had the honor of marrying Greg & Shannon this last Saturday at the always so beautiful Crescent Bay Park in Laguna Beach.  It was an intimate ceremony and the only bridal party was her two young girls.  Well during the first part of the ceremony, Roger noticed that the two girls who were standing over to the side were very emotional and both were crying (with happiness) inconsolably.  So Roger made an audible and invited the two girls to join Greg & Shannon and totally off the cuff, explained that this wedding is the joining of the entire family and the girls should be right next to them as well.  There was not a dry eye in the house…..  It was a beautiful moment and a beautiful wedding.

High-school Sweethearts at Friendly Hills Country Club.

Image

Karina & Miguel had their ceremony at Friendly Hills Country Club in Whittier on a beautiful Saturday afternoon.  They chose the Greatest  Package to be able to share their Love Story with their family and friends.

Two hundred and twenty guests shared the Love Story that brought Karina & Miguel to the alter. 

Their Love Story was filled with laughter, tears and moments of nostalgia. They have been together since High School and the days of MySpace where online dating was invented [smile]. Karina & Miguel’s bilingual ceremony was mixed just enough to have their parents, grandparents as well as their friends enjoy the beginning of what was to be an epic celebration.

From Emergencies to Toddlers- Great Officiant Michael Thieling Can Handle It All!


Emily & Casey

Married on July 25, 2014 at Saddle Peak Lodge

 

Stories like Emily and Casey’s make me really proud of what we at Great Officiants do. Their ceremony was on a Friday. ¬†That Monday, the officiant they had been working with for a while (not from Great Officiants) called and refused to perform their ceremony unless religious elements were included, which the had said from the onset they didn’t want – so he quit on them.

 

Enter Great Officiants. ¬†I was happy to put together and perform a ceremony exactly how they wanted it – after all, it’s their day – that’s the point! ¬†

Afterwords they had this to say:

About a week before our wedding, our original officiant had to cancel. We were suddenly in a bind and had to act fast to find a new officiant. About an hour after we called Great Officiants, we were put into contact with Michael Thieling. After our first conversation on the phone, we knew he was the right person for the job. Not only was he absolutely the perfect person for our ceremony, he was far better than the original officiant we planned on using! Everyone commented on how well he did.”

I’m so glad they were able to find us and have the ceremony they had dreamed of – congrats guys!!!

Monica and Jebadiah had a small, intimate ceremony on the beach at Point Dume Рmy go-to spot for couple who want to get married on the beach in Malibu.  They were so fun and I had to get an extra picture of their daughter Millicent who was very interested in how I filled out the marriage license. Congrats family!

Kara and Chris were gracious, upbeat and super fun on their wedding day despite the one major element affecting their wedding out of control – the heat! ¬†We were on a beautiful lawn next to the pond in downtown Long Beach with the majority of their guests in the direct sunlight. ¬†Right before we were about to begin the bride asked me to make it quick. ¬†As I was performing their ceremony I noticed every guest was fanning themselves with their program, so I began to edit down their ceremony on the fly – to the delight of the couple and guests who couldn’t wait to get into the shade. Congrats guys – I hope the reception was held in a location with air conditioning!

Paul & Keiko

Married July 27, 2014 at The Portofino РRedondo Beach

Paul and Keiko were already married, but wanted to affirm their vows in front of their family and friends and I was happy to oblige.  They performed a lovely rose ceremony to their parents and I was able to incorporate some language to include their little son Kai.

Congratulations and good luck to this wonderful family!Share This Post:
