A Hawaiian Style Ceremony at the David Baker Golf Course in Fountain Valley

I may only do Hawaiian / beach weddings from now on. The Aloha Spirit was strong at the David Baker golf course in Fountain Valley. Guests cheered and sounded off loudly , and a conch shell was sounded to the four directions as the groom, Gene Ahlo, waited anxiously for his bride, DeEtte Lucero. She arrived, radiant in white, and they exchanged Leis with parents. I sprinkled Hawaiian words and phrases through the ceremony to honor the heritage of both families, including part of the vows.  All were thrilled at the kiss and final Alooooooo-ha!

Superman Wedding Ceremony takes off in Fountain Valley

FullSizeRender

When Luella and Kevin and I were designing their ceremony at the David Baker Memorial Golf Course, we came up with a lot of different ideas. We were doing a full Filipino Ceremony, with cord, veil, and coins and since they were gamers and loved comic books, I suggested Superman! They loved it and so did I! I began the ceremony dressed in a nice gray suit but with a hidden surprise under it. The ceremony went off as normal until after the ring exchange. I then took off my jacket and handed it to the best man and said how hot it was up there. Then I said wow, its SUPER hot, to which I ripped off my shirt, with buttons flying, to reveal the big S on my chest! I then dropped trou to reveal the rest of my outfit and cape. I then finished the ceremony with a wine box and love letter add in, then shared these words with them on how to use their super powers:

Superman – learn what each other’s kryptonite is and avoid using it

Spiderman – use your spidey senses to know when thing are going sideways

Wonder woman – Know that she will always have special powers and never underestimate her.

Hulk – try not to make each other mad. You wouldn’t like you partner when they are mad

Captain America – fight for what’s right in your relationship

Iron man – power up your heart every day

Wolverine – know when to evolve and when to retract your nails

Thor – Know when to put the hammer down

Everybody was completely surprised and loved every minute of it. We wish them a super life together and hope that on their honeymoon that he was not faster than a speeding bullet! Lol.

Aloha from Fountain Valley?

When you think of a Hawaiian wedding you don’t traditionally think of Fountain Valley but that all changed with this wedding.

Morgan and Bryson exchanged their aloha in the beautiful garden at Mile Square Park Golf Course.

Starting with my blowing of the conch shell to signify the beginning of their journey they exchange delays blended the sand shared their vows in a beautiful loving ceremony.

Their flowers and leis were beautiful and their seating cards were mini pineapples with named attached to them.

They made me a nice testimonial afterwards.
