IMG_3993A beautiful sunset on Santa Monica beach was the perfect setting for Ruby and Ben to exchange marriage vows. They had traveled from England for their dream nuptials, and Great Officiants matched them with a cool clergyman, Rev.Dr.Gary Barmore, who strode through the sand to the site of the ceremony.  Although the bride and groom looked like glamorous young Hollywood stars, ready for a movie shoot by the shore, actually they will return home to resume their professions as British engineers, and of course, a joyous life together.  Since the only witnesses that evening were the photographer and videographer, when Rev.Gary came to the part where he likes to ask the guests for their affirmation, he looked into the video camera and beseeched the folks back home “across the pond” to provide loving support for Ben and Ruby through the years.  Ruby, by the way, was relieved that the rings were not fumbled into the sand!
