Congratulations to Asssumpta Batac & Hin Chau on their Saturday, September 16, 2017 wedding at the Knott’s Berry Farm Hotel in Buena Park, CA.  It was a beautiful day as their 250+ guests began arriving at the hotel.  The ceremony was conducted in the courtyard, as was the cocktail hour, followed by the reception in the ballroom on the upper level.  Music was supplied by a wonderful string duo.  The ceremony began as scheduled with the groom escorted by his parents, followed by the bridal party, then the bride, who was met at the beginning of the aisle by her parents and escorted to the alter and presented to her “soon to be” husband.  The ceremony included a Unity Candle and a Rose presentation to their mothers, as well as a special scripture reading and a “short” sermon at the request of the couple.  My very best to Assumpta and Hin as they begin their life-long journey together!   

Congratulations to Hiromi Sugano and Alvin Cara on their Saturday, September 23, 2017 wedding at the Tivoli Terrace in Laguna Beach, CA.  It was a simple, yet “Classy” ceremony with about 100 guests and lasted about fifteen minutes.  Ceremony music was provided by a pianist, which added elegance.  The brides entrance up the stairs with her dad was “royal.”  The couple greeted their guests for some pictures and the cake cutting immediately after the ceremony.  Afterwhich the new Mr. & Mrs. and bridal party returned for pictures while guests enjoyed cocktails, which was followed by the reception on the terrace level.

Congratulations to Griselda Salazar & Mario Garcia on their Friday, September 29, 2017 wedding at the Mountain Meadows Golf Club in Pomona, CA.  It was a beautiful day for a wedding.  Everything was perfect, and went as planned!  The coordinator had everything down to a science.  Even the music was queued perfectly (supplied by “DJ” Officiant Frank), which included 30 minutes of pre-ceremony soft music while the guests were arriving and being seated.  Their ceremony also included their Personal Vows, the Wine Cup and Rose presentation to their mothers.  Some “teary-eyed” moments from the heart!  My very best to the happy couple.

Ralf Berensau and Ann-Marie Carlson were pronounced “Ehemann und Ehefrau” amidst the fairytale setting of Tivoli Terrace in Laguna Beach the evening of November 6 in a marriage ceremony led by Rev. Dr. Gary Barmore.  Ralf, a German national and Mercedes-Benz executive, met Ann-Marie when his job brought him to California.  They are setting up house in Germany, but the future may well witness their return to the USA.  After meeting with Rev. Gary, they knew that he would construct with them the perfect ceremony and lead it with depth and zest.  They are very happy that Great Officiants provided them with the his name and contact information.   (In an interesting aside, Rev. Gary and his wife dined this past week with Nate (American) and Gerlinda (German) that he married twenty-five years ago and who were visiting from their home in Germany).

A tale of three beaches Laguna Hermosa and Malibu

Today I transversed Southern California’s beach communities.

My first wedding today was at the beautiful Tivoli Terrace in Laguna Beach. I love this place and I have a beautiful wedding chapel above their ceremony site.

Next I was off to her most of beach where we wanted out to the sand with 30 of their friends and did delightful ceremony right on the beach.

Then the trip down to Malibu to one of my favorite spots Point Dume.
With waves crashing in the background and surrounded by 35 of their favorite friends and family they exchange vows and rings and a beautiful spot right at the point.

It’s been a long day but when I look at the sun setting in the background over the ocean it’s been well worth it. I made three families very happy today and that’s why I do what I do.
