I was more involved with them from the moment we met up until their ceremony than I normally am with other couples due to some family matters they went through and got to literally fall in love with them.
Like people say now-a-days #relationshipgoals !!!!!!
We did a beautiful ceremony in the gazebo at Quiet Cannon. Great venue!!!
Wow what a hidden gem. Overlooking the Pacific Ocean, Lisa Smith of Great Officiants had the pleasure of performing the nuptials for DG and Mariah it was a very chilly misty day however everybody gathered under the gazebo and created a very warm environment for this lovely couple joined by family from the Bay Area and close friends DG and Mariah tied the knot. Both DG and Mariah are so in love, I don’t think they even knew anybody else was there. The ceremony was very heartfelt they chose to write their own very special vows . And just as I pronounce them husband-and-wife a beautiful cool breeze blew the clouds away and there was the sun wishing DG a Mariah a lifetime of love peace health and happiness congratulations to this happy couple.
Tik and Mia are such a wonderful couple. They just gave birth to a beautiful child, and wanted to be legally married. They drove down from West Covina and enjoyed the cool breeze at the gorgeous Averill Park Gazebo while surrounded by their close family and friends. I even learned some Chinese to start the ceremony: Dajia Hao (Hello everyone!)
We assisted them by having one of our notaries Shari issue the marriage license, and Suvin provided a beautiful ceremony.
Mia was so happy after the ceremony, she wanted to take a selfie with me.
Brian and Jeannette got married at the Disneyland Hotel thru their Fairy Tale Wedding Division. They wanted to give honor to Disney “The Happiest Place on Earth” so we came up with a hand binding ceremony and each ribbon referred to a different land. Read it below.
FANTASYLAND Long before you met you had this fantasy of falling in love, finding the right person and living happily ever after today that fantasy comes true. So I place the 1st ribbon.
ADVENTURELAND Your life together has been a wonderful adventure. You have gone together to amazing places and experienced new feelings and great food and met interesting people and so we place the 2nd ribbon
FRONTIERLAND Together you get to explore new frontiers. Trying new places to go, new friends to meet may these new frontiers show to a way to your future, And so we place the 3rd ribbon
STAR WARS LAND You think she is out of this world. Your Jedi strength is strong together. Along your adventure you will encounter many different beings. Some good some evil. Use the force to be able to know the right path. Together you can defeat the empire and return the galaxy to peace.
TOMORROWLAND All of the lands you have visited have prepared you for tomorrow land. May it be filled with fantasy, may your adventures tomorrow be bigger and bolder that you can ever imagine and may you blaze new frontiers together and create a happy home surrounded with family and love and help others find their Tomorrowland.
What a cloud-studded ocean view it was! The gazebo by Las Brisas Restaurant in Laguna jutted out over the surf, perfect for Victor Szabo and Beatrice Villareal to begin their married life together. Led by Rev.Dr.Gary Barmore (recommended to them by Great Officiants) and surrounded by family and friends, the bride’s father escorted his daughter into the altar of earth, sky and sea. Musical friends of the couple sang the song from Twilight, “I will Love You for a Thousand Years.” After the ceremony, the couple reminded Rev.Gary to always remember them because when they rehearsed the vows in his Costa Mesa home, Victor’s Eastern European ears miss-heard the phrase “I give you all my tomorrows” and said to his novia Latina — a bit confused but in earnest — “I give you all my tamales.” After a good laugh, their officiant shared some other humorous incidents from sacred ceremonies. A joyous bond was established, and it certainly showed during the very personal and professional wedding.
Carrie & Fernando's wedding took place at Disneyland Hotel's Rose Court Garden. This venue is absolutely beautiful as you can see from the picture. Even though it was a hot day the ceremony took place inside the gazebo so the couple and I were not hot at all and there was a very nice breeze.
We did our "My Favorite" ceremony with a few catholic characteristics added to it such as 1st Corinthians, John 4: 7-12, and A wedding prayer at the end. We also added the sand ceremony but instead of using sand I customized that tradition and rewrote it to make it for a Lego heart. The couple built a red Lego heart with their initials in white. We separated the heart in half and when we got to that portion of the ceremony instead of pouring their sands into the main container the united the heart making it complete which symbolized that uniting their lives completes both of their hearts.
This was truly a beautiful ceremony and I love when my couples get creative with different traditions and add-ins that we can provide. Carrie & Fernando I wish you guys nothing but love in all the blessings in the world! Keep letting your inner childs come out and play!
Congratulations to Adee Smit & David Matl on their May 9, 2015 wedding at the Dana Point Palisades Gazebo in Dana Point, CA. After a well-needed day of rain, the weather was perfect for this wedding with a beautiful view of the Pacific. Everything went as planned for this small but meaningful ceremony.
