A Contemporary Church in Etiwanda Gardens in Rancho Cucamonga

Diego and Milly's wedding took place inside a beautiful contemporary church located in Etiwanda Gardens in Rancho Cucamonga. We met about a week before their wedding and they originally wanted a Spanish ceremony. But during our meeting I learned that the reason they wanted a Spanish ceremony was because, like most couples, they did not know exactly how a bilingual ceremony would come out.

Most of my couples think that in bilingual ceremonies I repeat everything in both languages. This would be extremely repetitive and monotonous. The way I do bilingual ceremonies is by saying one or two paragraphs in English and the following one or two in Spanish without losing meaning or symbolism behind the message and also making everything flow evenly. Once I explain this to all my couples 99.9% of the time they decide to go with the bilingual ceremony.

This was the case with Diego and Milly. The end result was our "My Favorite" ceremony bilingual. It was very beautiful and not too long or too short!

Diego and Milly, thank you for granting me the honor of officiating your wedding ceremony! You guys are amazing! I wish you both nothing but love in all the blessings in the world!

Officiant Lisa Smith had the pleasure of being part of Anthony and Ana’s special day

Saturday November 8th, 2014 They were joined by family and friends to celebrate their love. The Christmas House in Rancho Cucamonga CA. was the perfect location for this joyous occasion. This over 100 year old grand victorian home looks like the family just went out for a short time soon to return. This is a beautiful, delightful, elegant venue. Anthony and Ana had a lovely garden wedding just as the sun was streaming perfect light unto the gazebo they were united in marriage. A very heartfelt poem was recited in Spanish by Ana's Niece followed with the "My Favorite Ceremony" and special custom Vow's written by these two lovers also including a Unity Candle Ceremony. But I must say the star of the show was the Ring Bearer unfortunately the paparazzi couldn't get a photo of him. The little fellow did such a great job for a doggie! He proudly and briskly walked up the isle to deliver the rings tied to his special bandana! Just as quick as he did his job he was gone, (the shy type) A splendid reception party followed and was enjoyed by all at the Christmas House. Certainly a joyous occasion to remember for years to come. Congratulations to Anthony And Ana.

Family Joins in the Vows at this Rancho Cucamonga Ceremony with Rev. George

Jocelyne and Jaime got married in Rancho Cucamonga at a friend’s home. The back yard was transformed from a happy family home complete with swing set and all, and through the magic of pipe and drape, among other things, it became Jocelyne and Jamie’s romantic ceremony site.

Three bouquets were placed on three empty chairs by groomsmen before the ceremony began in a place of honor next to the wedding party. The bride’s mother had passed on in 2010, her twin sister a few years before that. The groom’s best female friend had passed also. In their honor Re. George said a special blessing for the departed ones reminding everyone that though not physically present, they were there in everyone’s thoughts.

The bride was radiant and the groom dashing. As it came time for the vows, Rev. George reminded their guests that Jaime, being a Mixed Martial arts instructor, truly puts new meaning to his vow to love, honor and protect!

A most memorable moment of the ceremony was when Rev. George asked the entire audience to take a sacred vow to love honor and support the new couple. To signify their agreement everyone joyously declared, “I Do”.

A good time was had by all, including Reverend George, who enjoyed this day very much. Congratulations Jaime and Jocelyne!
