Whittney Clark and Sean Jarne went to the beach for their wedding

Whittney Clark and Sean Jarne went to the beach for their wedding.  Nevertheless elegance and style were on parade at the beautiful venue located at Newport Beach’s Crystal Cove.  At 4pm on first day of November on the front deck of the home used in Bette Middler’s “Beaches” fifty family and friends celebrated the marriage vows of this very happy and grateful couple.   Through Great Officiants of Long Beach Whittney and Sean had secured the ministerial services of Rev Dr Gary Barmore, who met with them in his Costa Mesa home to plan the ceremony and get further acquainted.  As is his practice, he began the ceremony with Sean and Whittney not yet hooked up but facing one another as the guests stood in honor, and then after they came forward together Gary turned them toward the seated guests for mutual affirmations, as he approached the guests to welcome them.   But there was an added reason for these positionings — so the Good Rev would not have to try to look over Sean who is six and a half feet tall.  The guests discovered themselves inspired beyond their expectation, and Mr. and Mrs. Jarne were so thrilled with fulfillment of their vision of the perfect wedding.

High Tide in Little Corona Del Mar

Image

Jeanne Cook and Joseph Sladek, having decided to seal their love in marriage, wondered where the wedding should take place.  They wanted a spectacular ocean setting for Jeanne’s Nebraska family to enjoy, as well as a place that would excite their six teenage children (all with names ending with “y” — suggesting they were destined to be step-sibs).  Wow — did they find just the right site: Little Corona del Mar beach and coves.   They also needed just the right minister to fulfill their vision of the ceremony, and were delighted that Great Officiants of Long Beach suggested Rev Dr Gary Barmore.

 Gary met with them in his home and everything clicked.   Jeanne’s father took on double duty — escorting his daughter down the sandy aisle and then strapping on his guitar to sing the couple a Nebraska grassland love song.  The high tide brought glorious waves over the rocks, but just short of the natural altar for Joe and Jeanne’s perfect wedding.
