Hilton San Gabriel Christian Wedding

Image

Who would have thought that one of the most beautiful places for a wedding would be on top of a Hilton Hotel on Valley Blvd in San Gabriel?

 But Andy Kim and Sunhee Lee discovered this venue, and with family and friends enjoyed a wonderful day of celebrating love and marriage.  Through Great Officiants of Long Beach the couple connected with Rev Dr Gary Barmore who led a ceremony just perfect for them.  

However, when Andy and Sunhee mounted the gazebo platform, Rev Gary noticed a look of rather grave concern on their faces as they spoke softly in Korean.  He wondered if something might be hindering their plans of commitment and bliss.  Oh my!   Then Andy explained with a whisper that they had left the ring box in their hotel room.  (The attached photo shows the moment when Andy asked a friend to hasten and fetch the wedding bands.)  When it was time for the exchange of vows and rings the box had not yet arrived, so Rev Gary walked down to where the couple’s parents were sitting, asked them to stand, and for the couple to bring them hugs and words of appreciation for the heritage which they were taking into the creation of their own family.  

There was clapping and celebration all around, and the beautiful ceremony proceeded as planned.

Roger….A Great Officiant & Groundskeeper!!

Image

Roger was very excited to be marrying Daniel & Liz that last weekend. They had been at a few of his previous weddings and knew that they wanted him for their wedding.  And what made this doubly special is that the wedding was being held at the Beverly Garland in Studio City just a couple miles from Roger’s house and the Beverly Garland is also a regular haunt for Roger and his family having had Thanksgiving dinners there on more than one occasion.

The only possible issue is that Daniel and Liz wanted streamers thrown by the guests as they walked down the aisle as husband & wife.  The problem was that the venue doesn’t allow streamers !!  And Roger only found this out as he was just walking up the aisle to perform the ceremony whispered to him by the wedding coordinator…..  So at the end of the amazing ceremony, Roger made the announcement about the streamers but also everyone needed to pick up after themselves after the wedding……….Well that didn’t happen……… except for one groomsman………and Roger !!!    It didn’t take long for the two of them to clean up and the groomsman was taken aback that the minister of the wedding was cleaning up too !!  Roger…… A Great Officiant and Groundskeeper !!!
