Adrian and Inez’s Malibu beach wedding

Image

From France with a small group of family and close friends, Inez and Adrian reached out to Great Officiants for a turnkey wedding on the beach.  The permits, chairs, Chuppah, flowers and even a sound system were all provided and set up seamlessly.

The forecast was for thundershowers on the eve of Adrian and Inez’s Malibu beach wedding.  Driving from San Clemente for two and a half hours in pouring rain didn’t exactly comfort me.  With no alternative for a dry ceremony, I plunged forward until I turned onto the quiet winding road toward Point Dume.  I was only ten minutes from the location when the clouds began to part and slowly the sun peeked through the gray.  Arriving at the end of the road, I noticed the unmistakable van from So Cal Beach Weddings.  Moments later, Michael drove up with the couple’s wedding license, issued on the spot and location.  When all was set up, Inez and Adrian arrived. The license was signed, witnessed by the rabbi and the ceremony began.

There are no words to describe the beauty of the beach in the midst of a passing cloud bank. The sun lighting the coastline and the iconic Point Dume surrounded the party with beauty that could not be staged by man.  It was a wonderful wedding gift from Nature herself.

We began with the signing of the couple’s beautiful custom Ketubah. With the designs given to me by Inez, I was able to complete what she envisioned.  As we moved into the ceremony, it was so touching to see tears of joy falling from Inez’s eyes.  The service was personable and lighthearted. When it was over, I was thinking that everyone would leave for their reception as it became quite cold and cloudy. Instead, I was surprised and moved when Adrian connected his smartphone to the speakers and played music that provided them a moment to be dancing on the beach, in Malibu, celebrating their dream wedding .  Mozel Tov Adrian and Inez!

Check out these three awesome weddings in Edens Garden in Moorpark, Maggiano’s in Costa Mesa, and Porter Valley Country Club

Image

Jasmine and Joseph’s wedding took place at Edens Garden in Moorpark, California and let me tell you this truly is the Garden of Eden‚Ķ Beautiful landscaping, wonderful greenery, captivating fountains, outstanding plants and flowers and luscious green grass are just some of the perks of this wonderful hidden gem‚Ķ An outside reception area that just captivates the mind and soul with white peacocks in cages to astound the eye.

As Jasmine was preparing to walk down the aisle Joseph could not hold his emotions back‚Ķ “oh my God, oh my God, oh my God”, was all he could say when he saw his wife to be coming down the aisle in Edens Garden. Jasmine’s smile lit up the place and her walk to him was emotional, exciting and of course a little anxious

They wrote their own vows to each other and read them with passion, feeling and conviction, and as they were pronounced husband and wife and walked off into Edens Garden to celebrate their marriage nuptials, all I could say was; this was a great wedding, for a great couple, at a great place by Great Officiants.

Joshua and Britney‚Äės wedding took place and Maggiano‚Äôs Italian Restaurant in Costa Mesa California‚Ķ This wedding was elegant, quite intimate and beautiful‚Ķ Their colors were a beautiful gray and plum that accented the oak wood tables,¬† chairs and the room was a stunning cream with soft wood oak walls that had an appeal of warmth and flavor‚Ķ Their procession was small but so heartwarming and beautiful‚Ķ They wrote their own vows in which both teared up with joy in their hearts to each other‚Ķ Their mother‚Äôs were so happy and Maggiano‚Äôs did a wonderful job of making their day beautiful.

Last April, Great Officiants contacted me with a request for a rabbi to officiate Jared and Meghann’s interfaith wedding ceremony at Porter Valley Country Club. I was available for November 18th and reached out to them.   Within a few moments, I bonded with this fun loving couple and they with me.  We met together to craft their unique ceremony and then commissioned to create their Custom Ketubah.

Explaining the opportunity they have to customize their Ketubah and infuse it with their energies, they chose the lake and fountain at the Country Club, which was to be the background of their ceremony.

Meghann and Jared’s ceremony was to start at 4:30 and the sun was just getting prepared to surround the couple and guests with a spectacular light show that was not expected.  The weather and sun setting was like soft music playing while they shared their vows before family and friends.  Congratulations to the Jared and Meghann!Share This Post:
