Michael & Erika got married at the always beautiful Coyote Hills Golf Course this last weekend.  It was a perfect ceremony from beginning to end, especially when Michael surprised Laura by dipping her for the final kiss !  Everyone loved the wedding and Roger received many kudos from the large, fun loving crowd.

Erika also had some kind words for Roger:

“Roger, thank you so much! We received so many compliments from our guests as well. We really loved it. You made it so special! “

An Interfaith Ceremony at Coyote Hills Golf Course in Fullerton

Helen Wong and Howard Hsu joyously joined their lives in marriage at Coyote Hills Golf Course in Fullerton, led by Rev.Dr.Gary Barmore of Great Officiants.  Following their vows, the bride and groom released two white doves — symbolizing the unity of their soaring love.  Then, after being presented as a married couple to all the guests, they recessed down the aisle while twenty more doves were released — representing all the family and friends who will accompany this couple’s happy life through the years.  Rev.Barmore, a college professor and inter-faith minister, was pleased to affirm both the Christian and Buddhist traditions of Helen and Howard, encouraging everyone to read the wonderful best-selling book “Living Buddha, Living Christ” by Thich Nhat Hanh.

Three different couples… three different ceremonies…all ending with a wonderful kiss.

My day today was filled with wonder and happiness. My three big weddings crisscrossed across Orange County and Riverside County. 

The first one was at Coyote Hills Golf Club in Fullerton.  A wonderful and shy couple we're surrounded by beautiful flowers and music from a quartet.

The second was down on Little Corona Del Mar beach. The tide was going out in the rocky shore was appearing. I did a wonderful loving ceremony celebrating their believes in God and each other.

The third one was a Green River Golf Club in Corona. I did a wonderful custom written ceremony for them. During the ceremony it was interrupted by two different trains passing by. I incorporated them into the ceremony so everything would stay on track. Chuckle chuckle .

On either side of the three appointments I had to marriage license appointments. It was a wonderful and full day. I love days like this.

Exchange of Wedding Garlands a highlight of this ceremony.

Today's ceremony between Jessica and Phu had many different things incorporated into the ceremony at the Muckenthaler.

In addition to the traditional vows, I do's and ring exchange we added a couple prayers.
They also read some personal comments to each other about their relationship and then exchanged these beautiful garlands.

The garlands represented strength and beauty. The string is the cord that holds them together the beauty of the flowers that adorn them.
I related that to their relationship as their love for each other is the string that will hold their beautiful relationship together.

The ceremony closed with a beautiful kiss and the recessional back down the aisle.

Frank performs another amazing ceremony at the Summit House in Fullerton

Congratulations to Tracy Young & Eric Gonzales on their October 25, 2014 wedding at The Summit House in Fullerton, CA.  Everything about the ceremony was great – from starting on time, to music, coordination, the setting, the weather and (of course) the ceremony itself!

The Sun Shone for Octavio’s Wedding in Villa del Sol!

Carlos and Johana

Carlos and Johana

Carlos and Johana’s wedding took place at Villa del Sol in Fullerton. It is a beautiful place and was decorated exquisitely! 

They wrote their own vows, which I’m such a fan of, and it was so emotional. 

Carlos & Johana, it was about time you got married! I couldn’t be happier and honored to have officiated your wedding ceremony! I wish you all the blessings in the World!

Great Officiant Octavio has been BUSY!

 Octavio gave us the following info on his amazing weddings!

Amy & Martin got married at Monterey Hill Restaurant on their beautiful outdoor deck overlooking the hills that surround it. They did an extraordinary job decorating and the coordinator at the restaurant was great as well.  Though Octavio didn’t get a chance to meet Amy in-person before the ceremony, Amy was very involved in designing the ceremony with him, it felt like they had known each other for years.  Martin was a very sweet man, easy to talk to, and great energy.  Both families were very funny and kind!

————————————————————————————

Arely & Martin got married at a club called InCahoots in Fullerton.  They transformed the entire night club into a beautiful ceremony/wedding reception venue.  It was a great idea to have their ceremony and reception at a nightclub because many systems needed like sound, lighting, bar, and kitchen are already there so it takes much less planning than having it somewhere else.

They both looked amazing and Martin wore a beautiful Mariachi outfit that looked awesome.  You could see the love and respect they each had for one another and their culture.  I truly enjoyed being a part of their special day.

———————————————————————————

Anna & Eric got married at the First Congregational Church of Los Angeles.  WOW!  If you haven’t seen this place, you must!  It is impressive, out of this world, gorgeous, incredibly big, with organ pipes all throughout the church and stained glass in every window.  Anna and Eric knew what they wanted and were more involved in designing their ceremony, among everything else, than anyone I’ve ever worked with.  I wish I could officiate every one of my weddings at this church.  They allow non-denominational Officiants to perform wedding there, which is rare. Anna & Eric, thank you for being such a wonderful couple and giving me the honor to officiate your beautiful wedding!

We received the following letter from Anna & Eric after the ceremony:

We’re here in Cancun, Mexico enjoying our honeymoon. Thank you for this beautiful email to us. Eric and I were very pleased with your service, professionalism and care. You went above and beyond to make our special day just perfect. Everyone raved how wonderful you were and how beautiful the ceremony was. 

 I’ll definitely be recommending you to our family and friends for future weddings. As for the church, this gorgeous haven was the right place for us. We felt the wonderful vibrations and felt in love with the organ, service and unique look inside the church. 

 Thanks again. 🙂

From Octavio: I wish each couple the best of luck and all the blessings in the World!!!
