Sonia and Gerzon were wed at the Laguna Beach Hotel, right on the beach

Sonia and Gerzon were wed at the Laguna Beach Hotel, right on the beach on Friday, July 7th. There was a giddiness in the air, everyone nervous and excited before we began. While conversing with Sonia in the bridal suite before we began, she explained she wanted to show me something very special attached to her bouquet of flowers. You see, Sonia had told me about a month ago that her father had passed unexpectedly just a month prior, so she knew her wedding day was going to be an emotional one. There, hanging from her bouquet was a charm with a picture of her father inside, and on the back the words “Walk with me, Daddy.” Sonia knew as her two uncles escorted her down the aisle, her father also walked beside her. And was celebrating alongside everyone else at the love and unity of this blessed couple.

You may say that the union of Mandy and Kristie was an insane one, but I mean that in the best way possible. They are insanely in love, bubbly, and the most lovely couple.

“There is, incidentally, no way of talking about cats that enables one to come off as a sane person.”

You may say that the union of Mandy and Kristie was an insane one, but I mean that in the best way possible. They are insanely in love, bubbly, and the most lovely couple. And they have a deep love of their cats, Guinness and Winston. Even though apparently their cats always love Mandy more. They have a bunch of these little quirks and adorable pet peeves with each other, but they also ground each other. They help each other and they compromise. It’s the exact type of real relationship that is an example to all of us, showing us what it is really like to be in love. Oh, and they love board games! So much so, they built a lovely scrabble game as apart of their wedding ceremony. They had glued down words that meant a lot to them or described their relationship. As we approached the “I Do’s” of the ceremony, they each glued down the tiles I DO onto the board as the final step. Showing the commitment and devotion they have for each other, but always with a hint of fun and silliness.

The Marriage of a Bear and a Pineapple

I first met Victoria and Thomas at a surprise wedding involving Thomas’ brother, and had the honor of being asked to officiate their wedding the following year. Over that time I got to know Victoria and Thomas and watch their relationship grow even stronger before their Big Day. They have the same Spotify playlists, they love going on adventures together and call each other their adventuremate, Thomas is her Bear and she is his Pineapple. They also had children united because of this marriage, their three dogs. After the wedding, they looked forward to sharing a loving home together somewhere in the countryside, a Bear, a Pineapple, and their three dogs.

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”.

Intimate Gathering through the Power of FaceTime.

 

John and Curtis are not about having a big shindig when it comes to their wedding. In fact, all they wanted were a few friends, and John’s parents watched the ceremony with FaceTime over an iPhone. Their lovely little daughter Evelyn came down the aisle with flowers, eventually tearing up saying that she was shy. It was a small, loving group of people but the tenderness they  felt toward this couple filled their entire home. And what a gorgeous home it was!

Wesley performed a Beautiful Ceremony at the Villa in San Juan Capistrano

Step back in time into this Spanish-style Villa.

It was truly breath-taking. Jayme and Janeen had a classic spanish  guitarist play them down the aisle. The Villa in the small spanish town of San Juan Capistrano looked the part, covered in ivy, a large mahogony door with handmade door knockers to welcome guests. And even though Jayme is a hardcore Yankees fan (he’s from the East Coast) and Janeen is a huge Giants fan, their unity was truly heartfelt. They even included their 7 year old Boston Terrier, Yankee, into the ceremony. It was truly a treat for all.

Jessica and Alvin were wed at the Green Gables Estate in San Marcos, CA by Wesley

Jessica and Alvin were wed at the Green Gables Estate in San Marcos, CA. It was like stepping into a lovely painting, a large white washed house where the wedding party were getting ready, large Victorian furniture adorning the  green grassy yard. Close friends and family supported these two and emotions were running high, especially when Jessica’s father gave her away and asked Alvin to take care of his baby girl. He then read his vows to her, cleverly inserting quotes from their favorite movies together into his vows. It was a beautiful retreat into their love story, and we were all honored to be apart of it.
