Anthony shines during a rainy weekend

First up, Tina and Brian at the Hyatt Regency, Orange County. The rain gave up a half an hour before the scheduled start time and everyone sprang into action!
Florist, hotel AV team, photographer, catering staff – flurry of activity. Also trying to work in a rehearsal while the guests were arriving!
We started only a few minutes behind schedule and everything went perfectly!
The ceremony started with a rose presentation to the mothers, a sand pouring that included the couples daughter and also a rose exchange between Brian and Tina.
As the couple stopped at the end of the isle for another kiss picture – rain came back! Fifty minutes of sun shine. Could not have asked for more!

Keeping with the Halloween theme from the day before, the wedding party took pictures in masks, and all of the guest were supplied with and asked to wear them as well.

Who Stole the Rings!- Weddings by Great Officiant Michael Thieling

 

Kelly and Alvand

Married on July 18, 2014 at The Portofino – Redondo Beach

There’s a first time for everything and nothing proves that more than Kelly and Alvand’s wedding.  I went about performing a ring warming for them and their guests but when it was time to exchange rings I asked their guests where they had been passed to and there was silence.  I made a little joke saying “What, no one wants to give them back?” to which everyone laughed but still, silence as to their actual whereabouts.  Finally after what seemed like forever, the bride’s aunt raised her hand saying “Someone handed me rings but I didn’t know what to do with them.”  It seems she decided they were gifts that all the guests had gotten and because she came in a little late she hadn’t heard the ring warming explanation.

Everyone got a great kick out of it and it added such a memorable, albeit tense, moment to a beautiful ceremony.

Congrats guys!


 

Elizabeth & Brian

Married on July 19, 2014 at the Huntington Harbor Yacht Club

Elizabeth and Brian were awesome to work with!  They had a beautiful, straight forward ceremony with a little twist and first for me – a dove release!

I worked separately with the bridesmaids and groomsmen and Mitch Todd (owner of OCDoves.com) to organize everyone and choreograph how the release would happen.  The ceremony went off without a hitch and I think the video of the dove release speaks for itself:

After their wedding they wrote us this lovely review:

“We had Michael T. as our Officiant and he did an amazing job. He was flexible in scheduling meetings with my husband and I and was very helpful in answering all the questions we had. The main website has many templates of readings and what is said during wedding ceremonies and Michael helped us find the perfect combination of things to accommodate what we were looking for.  Michael was very prompt in sending us emails with the revisions of the ceremony and also gave us different sources of readings to look at.  He speaks well and has very good stage presence! We felt extremely comfortable with him and took a liking to him automatically.”

Thanks so much guys – it was my pleasure!

Gail and John had a very simple, private ceremony at their friend’s house in the beautiful Corona del Mar. As the sun set into the ocean in the background, their friends cheered after their “I Do’s.” I was so jealous that I didn’t get to stay for the amazing food provided by a private personal chef.

I give you all my best!
