An outdoor wedding in late November is risky business, but Miranda Grey and Kevin Roberts really nailed it on the beautiful SoCal afternoon of November 23. Their venue, the Unitarian Church of Palos Verdes, offered a clear vista from the Pacific Ocean to the Hollywood Hills, and Rev Dr Gary Barmore, secured through Great Officiants of Long Beach, led a ceremony that lifted the couple and their guests into a celebration of life and the gift of God that makes life so worthwhile … love. Kevin and Miranda chose not to stand with a wedding entourage, so the intimate setting made it feel like everyone attending were their “best men” and “women of honor.”
Megan Cai and Kevin Courtney, with friends and family cheering, recited their marriage vows at the Huntington Beach Hilton overlooking the great Pacific Ocean. In their long courtship, Kevin and Megan traveled across that ocean to her homeland of China ten times! With homes both in Irvine and Hawaii, of course, the trip to Asia is cut into two manageable halves, and the happy couple plan to keep flying around the globe to exotic locations. The weather was perfect for the ceremony, the harpist played beautifully, and Rev Gary Barmore of Great Officiants, according the the bride and groom, offered just the right words and feelings for the auspicious occasion.
