It was a gorgeous oceanfront wedding for the ages! Joelle and John Paul showed how to pull off a large family wedding with panache and grace. Their choice of the Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach Resort was an unexpected surprise – a venue with tantalizing fountains across a wide plaza that faces the Pacific, elevated above the seaside, offering views like no other.

What a terrific place to stand with my back to the waves while John Paul was greeted with wide applause (and boistrous cheering from friends) as soon as he appeared. It may have been a bit of a walk “down the aisle” for Joelle, but she took advantage of the fountain court to it’s fullest effect, her stunning gown flowing gracefully as the string section played a cool arrangement of U2’s “With Or Without You” from The Joshua Tree album. What a novel and inspired choice of song.

The best parts of this wedding came from the audience responses.  Their cheers, laughs, and enthusiasm made it a remarkable day. The new camara drones were able to soar high above the entire crowd and grasp the fully gorgeousness of the view, the romance, the sweep of it all.  Without any doubt, Joelle and John Paul are destined for an equally romantic life together – and Clifford was deeply proud to have been part of it.  Thanks so much to the newly extended Sazon family for all their love and acknowledgment!

Rev. Sarah performs a beautiful beach ceremony in Huntington Beach

Image

On a sunny Saturday in October, a beautiful bride surrounded by her lovely maids, stood in the sand as the breeze gently blew her hair and rippled her dress, while she awaited the arrival of her groom so she could walk down the aisle to start their lives together in Huntington Beach.

Brianna and Melvin waited a long time for this moment, and finally on the beach before their family and friends, their love, which began with a good friendship and grew into a best friendship, true love and partnership, was sealed as they exchanged vows and said “I do.”

There under the blue, blue sky with the deep vast ocean behind them and the warm sand at their feet, they promised to journey together through the ups and downs of life’s roller coaster, to walk hand in hand, and choose to love daily.

The turquoise blues and the bright coral complemented nature’s magnificent colors, paired with the arch and flowers made a picturesque setting.  October’s warm weather made for an extended summer wedding that was perfect for Brianna and Melvin.    Of course, nothing compared to the way Melvin looked at her, both misty eyed, as they said their vows to one another.

It was a lovely wedding, filled with the hope of the bride and groom’s love, and that of their family and friends that surrounded them with love and well wishes.

Happy Wedding Brianna and Melvin!

Another Seacliff County Club Wedding for Great Officiant Greg!

Image

20160625_162649
Great Officiant Greg had the honor and pleasure of marrying Beau and Haylee Bergevin on Saturday, June 25, 2016 at the beautiful Seacliff Country Club in Huntington Beach, California. The private club, owned by American Golf, is a wonderful venue for a classy, elegant and fun wedding and reception.

Beau and his groomsmen were very handsome and sharp in their black tuxedos, and Haylee was just beautiful and elegant in her wedding dress, and the bridesmaids were beautiful too!

Beau and Haylee selected “My Favorite Ceremony” which was customized by Great Officiant Greg.  The loving ceremony was laced with just enough humor to keep the ceremony fun.  Haylee was beside herself with tears of joy, and Beau was so happy.  Haylee steadied herself by replying “Hell yes” when asked by Great Officiant Greg “Do you take Beau to be your Husband”?  (That does qualify as a correct two-word answer, in lieu of “I Do”)  Everyone had a great time!

Many of Beau and Haylee’s friends commented on how much they enjoyed the ceremony, that it was the best they have ever experienced, and how enjoyable, loving and fun it was!

Many thanks to the staff at Seacliff Country Club for their expert help and support, and to Johnathan the DJ and sound expert for his assistance.

All of us at Great Officiants wish Beau and Haylee much love and happiness in their life together.

A Seacliff County Club Wedding for Great Officiant Greg!

Image

20160618_161220
Great Officiant Greg had the honor and pleasure of marrying Jarrid and Jenna Johnston on Saturday, June 18, 2016 at the beautiful Seacliff Country Club in Huntington Beach, California. The private club, owned by American Golf, is a perfect venue for a classy and elegant wedding and reception.

Jarrid and his groomsmen were very handsome and sharp in their dark gray tuxedos, and Jenna was lovely and elegant in her wedding dress.  The special diamond necklace, given by Jarrid to Jenna as part of a “series” of wedding day presents, was just spectacular and added to her beauty!

As a side story, Great Officiant Greg met Jarrid and Jenna fourteen months earlier at a bridal expo at Seacliff.  They were standing on the outside patio (were the weddings take place) talking.  Greg wanted a break, so he went outside and introduced himself noting that Great Officiants was the preferred company at Seacliff.  They asked “do you know anything about the club?”  He said “yes I sure do!” They asked “how is the food?”  Greg said “it is really great!”  Jarrid and Jenna then said “how do you know?”  He answered “I have been a member of the Seacliff Country Club for many years.”  That was it!  They booked Seacliff for their wedding and Great Officiant Greg on the spot!

Ending up at the end of the receiving line, Greg had the great fortune of having all of Jarrid and Jenna’s family state that the ceremony was the best they have ever experienced, and how enjoyable, loving and fun it was.

Many thanks to Great Officiant Beth (Greg’s wife) for the pictures, and to the staff at Seacliff County Club for their expert help and support.

All of us at Great Officiants wish Jarrid and Jenna all the love and happiness as they are now joined together as one!

When you have a fun loving couple that wants a great love story written for their wedding, a fantastic wedding coordinator (with Sweet Events By Anh) and 200 plus guests that are there to have fun at the Venue by Three Petals, watch out !  Roger pulled out all the stops for this wonderful couple and it turned out to be one of Roger’s top five weddings….  Here’s what Kim had to say.

Hi Roger,

Thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts for the best, hilarious and memorable ceremony!!!  Beyond perfect and above all expectations. You killed it!

Jerry’s reaction to you saying Sierra is here was PRICELESS! 

All of our guests were laughing, crying, and coming up to us afterwards saying we had the best officiant. Even Jerry said he can do this wedding thing all over again as it really was our best day ever! 

Million thanks!

XOXO,
Kim & Jerry

Wedding over-looking the surf in Huntington Beach

For their wedding over-looking the surf in Huntington Beach on Sunday afternoon April 17, Nathan Gayton and Alina Castro were thankful for four things: that her father was well enough to attend and escort the bride (that’s him in photo); that her maid-of-honor made it all the way from Ventura, almost on time; that Rev Dr Gary Barmore of Great Officiants met with them, planning and conducting the perfect ceremony of love, commitment and joy; and most of all, they were thankful for each other and their deep appreciation for the love given by God to live out every day of their life together.

The Newland Barn in beautiful Huntington Beach is always a special venue for weddings.  They take great care of their guests and the grounds are always beautiful.  And when you combine in a gorgeous day, you have it all !  And that’s what Dallen and Diana had this last Saturday.  It was like a perfect summer day!  And to top that off, they had the amazing wedding duo team of coordinator Kristen Black of Stop And Stare Events and her husband Dakota who was the DJ.  Combine this with Roger who gave a fantastic ceremony and you had a perfect wedding !

So much that the bride wrote Roger the very next day to share these kind words with him:

Best wedding ever!!!  Thank you so much Roger. You were the biggest hit yesterday and we are so thankful for you!  Thank you again so much for your amazing officiating  🙂
