A Beautiful Beach Backdrop Bilingual Ceremony

IMG_0616Rajah & Camilo tied the knot at The Malibu Beach Club off the PCH with a beautiful ocean backdrop. Rajah is Philippine and Camilo Hispanic so it was essential for them and for their families and friends to have a bilingual ceremony.

We worked together to design a perfect and well-balanced ceremony so that everybody could feel part of it and understand the beautiful message behind it. We incorporated the mothers rose presentation in both English and Spanish and also the butterfly release right before the pronouncement.

It was the first time I had ever done a butterfly release as usually my couples replace the butterflies with bubbles. It was absolutely beautiful and no butterflies were hurt! Instead of flying away they all flew towards the orchids that surrounded us and posed there for all to take pictures! They could clearly feel the love in the air and did not want to leave the atmosphere!

Rajah & Camilo are big fans of the famous book "The Little Prince" so they asked me to incorporate into their ceremony a reading from the book. I rehearsed it a few times before their wedding so that it would come out beautifully. To my surprise it almost brought tears to their eyes as I read the beautiful words. I was very happy with the outcome of the ceremony! And of course I absolutely adore this happy couple!

Rajah & Camilo I send you both all my love, hugs, blessings, and best wishes in the world!IMG_0634 IMG_0636 IMG_0638

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!


Great Officiant Octavio has a Very Busy Wedding Weekend

Octavio-231Omar & Mercedes tied the Knott at beautiful Swiss Park Banquet Center in Whittier. This is one of his favorite locations because the outdoor setting is covered by trees, blocking the sun from the couple and their families and friends. As well as being a beautiful place for the ceremony and pictures of course. This happy couple decided to use the My Favorite ceremony which Octavio translated completely to Spanish for everyone to be included. They added the Mother’s Rose Presentation.


Juan & Llesica tied the knot at 72nd Place in Long Beach. This location provides such a beautiful backdrop, not only to say your vows to your significant other, but also for wonderful pictures. They chose My Favorite ceremony and added a couple of Catholic traditions such as 1st Corinthians and a wedding prayer before the closing comments. It was a bilingual ceremony. The beauty of our ceremonies is that they can be customized to you your wishes.


Oscar & Elizabeth tied the knot at Sterling Hills Golf Club in Camarillo, CA. It was a spectacular afternoon, the sun was shining down on us and the weather couldn’t have been better. Their ceremony was catholic bilingual and they incorporated the Mother’s Rose Presentation & the lasso and coin ceremony. It all came out beautiful and they were very happy with everything.
