Marisa & Victor

Marisa and Victor were a ball to work with – they wanted to laugh and have a fun ceremony on the beach in Santa Monica surrounded by family and friends with no stress.  Although Victor was still on base as a submariner, I got to meet with Marisa and her family prior to the ceremony to learn all about them and craft the perfect ceremony. Great Officiants issued them a confidential marriage license and they were ready to go!

On the day of their ceremony, our beach team did a full setup down the street from the Santa Monica Pier.  I got to tell their love story and did a quick salute to our troops for Victor and many of their guests who were also military.

They read personal vows that they wrote to each other and closed out their ceremony with a lovely Sand Ceremony.  Marisa happens to be a twin, and we’ve already talked about me performing her sister’s wedding someday.

It was my pleasure now and will be then – all my best!

Ashley and Jacob wanted a simple, straightforward ceremony surrounded by their family and friends and I loved performing it for them!  Another of our out-of-state couples, we did all of their ceremony planning via Skype so that I could make sure they got exactly what they wanted.




Daisys in Dana Point. A wedding with a view.

One of the great things that our company Great Officiants is Beach Weddings and overlooks. Today we were in Dana point at heritage Park. The area overlooks Dana point Harbor and it couldn’t have been a nicer day.
With temperatures in the low 70s and a light breeze blowing it was a picture perfect December day.

Our beach division did all the set up and floral centered around daisies.

It felt like a beautiful spring day.
Nic and Cory were so happy.
