Octavio has a bilingual wedding in a restaurant, and a beautiful wedding on a beach

Paulo & Flor's ceremony and reception took place at Luminarias in Monterey Park. It was a beautiful day and the weather was exceptional, not too cold and not too hot. This venue is very popular as it has two different areas were ceremonies can take place plus you can have your reception there as well. On weekends and holidays they have a brunch going on so there is wonderful smell of food in the air.

Paulo and Flor asked me to do a Catholic Lite ceremony in Spanish with the vows, I do's, and ring exchange in English. They also incorporated the mothers rose presentation.

It all came out beautifully. 

Flor and Paulo thank you for choosing me as your officiant. I'm honored to have officiated your wedding and I wish you all the blessings and love in the world!

Damone and Angie had their wedding ceremony at El Matador Beach in Malibu. Even though the tide was high we were holdin' on and dear Blondie (sun) was shining behind us.

It was a beautiful afternoon! We incorporated the sand ceremony, lasso ritual, and coins into our Catholic Lite ceremony. Since they didn't have a setup they asked friends to hold the glass container while they poured the sand into it. This is a great way to include  loved ones into the ceremony by giving them a "part" in your ceremony.

Damone & Angie, it was an honor to be chosen to officiate your wedding!!! Thank you so much! I wish you all the blessings in the World!
