A beach wedding for Great Officiant Greg!

20160430_170246Great Officiant Greg had the honor of marrying Missy and Nick Giaone on the sand on April 30, 2016 in Long Beach, California.  The Catholic Light ceremony with the “blending of the sand” included their three children, which was very special!  Although the ceremony is serious, the setting was beautiful and casual, and Reverend Greg made it heartwarming and just a little funny and light.  With five colors of sand, the final container, representing their blended lives, was very colorful and a wonderful keepsake!

Nick and Missy’s friends and family, many who traveled from Arizona and Chicago, commented on how much they enjoyed the ceremony by Reverend Greg.

Many thanks to Suvin and Amber with So Cal Beach Wedding (A division of Great Officiants) for their very professional set-up, and to Beth Gates at Lei of Love who supplied the archway, bouquet, boutonnieres and wedding flowers.20160430_170614 20160430_170617

A Classic Wedding and a Runaway Best Man?

A Runaway Best Man ???

Roger married a really great couple Alex & Veronica this last Saturday at the Ports O Call Restaurant overlooking the water in San Pedro.

It was a picture perfect day.  The only problem was that the best man was a no-show…… He was Alex’s best friend and Alex was concerned because this would never happen on a day like his wedding day ! So just before the wedding started, Alex was visibly distraught so Roger and him took a walk and chatted about what was important that day and the everything would turn out fine in the end.  And sure enough, the Best Man made it….. late, but he made it and the day finished on a high note!!!


A Classic Wedding And A Classic Pose…….

Roger’s couple Alex & Bertha that got married on the beach of Santa Monica this last weekend had the classic wedding.  A beautiful beach wedding set up by Beth at Lei Of Love with a small, intimate gathering of friends and family.

It was a perfect wedding and right at the end after Roger announced them husband and wife and that Alex may now kiss his bride, Alex suddenly takes his new bride and dips her with the kiss!! It was the perfect ending to a classic wedding with a classic pose!!

Beth Rocks the Beach!

Last Saturday the joining of 2 hearts as well as two families occurred on the sand in Long Beach. Beth had the pleasure of marrying Misty and Kevin and meeting both families throughout the entire process. I mean the entire process, Beth was the Beach Wedding Coordinator, Florist and Officiant for this wedding. Meeting both the Mothers and the Bride first, coordinating all aspects of the wedding including meeting extended family and friends at the Wedding Rehearsal the night prior. What lovely families Misty and Kevin come from and what a lovely extension of those families they will create. Congratulations to Misty and Kevin and your families!
