Jonathon Linn and Kristy Gallegos were married at Orange Hill Restaurant on 7/7/17 in the style they had always dreamed of

Jonathon Linn and Kristy Gallegos were married at Orange Hill Restaurant on 7/7/17 in the style they had always dreamed of.  The setting was beautiful, over-looking the valley as evening lights came on.  The tough part was finding a minister who fit their faith and philosophy of life.  So they turned to Great Officiants of Long Beach and were connected with Rev. Dr. Gary Barmore.   After meeting in his home for planning the ceremony and getting acquainted, they knew that they would enjoy the experience and be very proud before family and friends.  While neither Kristy nor Jonathon are fully bi-lingual, when Rev. Gary asked them to repeat some of the ring (anillo) vows in Spanish, they did so beautifully, to the surprised delight of both Anglo and Latino guests.   Once again, Great Officiants served a marrying couple really well.

A Total Surprise Wedding For The Bride

Roger got to be part of a very cool surprise for an unsuspecting bride this last weekend.  You see Carlos and Anna have been married for 20 years and Carlos wanted to celebrate their love for one another by renewing their vows once again after two decades together……but he wanted to do it as a surprise for her on the beach.  So Carlos had set up the perfect plan.  He arranged it all thru the The Victorian, an amazing restaurant in Santa Monica and they would set up the chairs and such on the beach.  Now to get Anna there and surprise her…… And this is where the genius of the plan came into play…. You see Anna was going to be on the beach getting some pictures taken by a family friend (who was in on the surprise) and this family friend was “casually” going to walk her over to the area where Roger and all their friends and family would be waiting and surprise her with the wedding.  But they didn’t want her to notice the assembly of friends and family…. So the photographer friend had her walk backwards for probably a couple hundred feet and she never saw it until she was right on top of it !  It worked perfect and she was overwhelmed. A beautiful wedding !!  And Roger topped it off with an amazing ceremony.  It was a great day.   Roger told Carlos the only downside to this wonderful day was that Carlos set the bar really high for every married man out there !   Touche’ Carlos !

An Amazing View And An Amazing wedding

Orange Hill Restaurant is an extraordinary place.  It overlooks the city of Orange and its adjacent cities with a view for miles.  It is the perfect place for an afternoon or sunset dinner.  It also happens to be the place that Aaron & Margo decided to tie the knot at.  Roger was lucky enough to be there officiating their wedding this last Sunday.  It was a beautiful day and a very emotional day. Everyone cried and laughed.  It was the perfect day !!

When I arrived to their venue, the beautiful Mastro’s Ocean Club in Malibu, and met Raed for the first time we realized we’re both from Puerto Rico!!!

Raed & Gustavo live out of state so we didn’t have a chance to meet in person before their wedding. We were only able to communicate via email and texts as their careers are very demanding and on top of that they were planning their wedding on their own. All I knew was that they wanted a Spanish ceremony so I designed the perfect one for them and they loved it!

When I arrived to their venue, the beautiful Mastro’s Ocean Club in Malibu, and met Raed for the first time we realized we’re both from Puerto Rico!!! Five minutes into our conversation and being introduced to his friends I realized they knew part of my family and some of my friends from back home. The automatic love and connection between Puerto Ricans that meet outside of the island was immediately intensified!! It was like being with my own family and friends!! They even had a seat reserved for me and asked me to stay with them through the night.

I ended up exchanging numbers with some of their guests and the AWESOME couple invited me to come stay at their beautiful home. Needless to say we established a lifelong friendship. These people will be in my life forever.

I cannot express how much love I felt from them and all their guests. This was truly the best experience I’ve ever had!!!!

Michele and Bob had a Casual and Fun Wedding at the Charthouse in Redondo Beach, by Suvin

Michele and Bob have a wonderful love story and celebrated this at the Charthouse in Redondo Beach. They wanted to share this with their guests, so they elected to have the Greatest Package. With this upgraded package, I wrote custom vows and sprinkled tid bits of their relationship into the ceremony by a relationship questionnaire they filled out. They met 37 years ago, crossed paths many times throughout the years, and finally re met through the magic of Facebook! They were such a fun couple, they wanted a casual beach feel with lots of humor. Surrounded by family, friends, and the amazing view of the ocean, they exchanged vows, laughed together, cried together, gave each other that magic kiss, and may they live happily ever after…

Sittin’ on the Dock of the Bay

 

Jaden and Quesia are starting out on a fresh, brand new adventure together as newlyweds as they were wed at the Reef in Long Beach with a beautiful view of the Bay. Even though they are in their early 20’s, they knew they wanted each other and no one else to grow old with. There was many advice from their parents and relatives to wait and make sure, but anyone watching had no doubt they were sure. Jaden told me before the ceremony to just make sure everything was right for his bride, that’s all he cared about. So he’s already ahead of the game. His mother also commented after the wedding, “I am losing my son, the apple of my eye! But he couldn’t have chosen anyone better than Quesia”.
