Jennifer and Jason November 9, 2012 Fallbrook/San Diego Wedding Minister

Epper2The Arbor Terrace at The Grand Tradition in Fallbrook, North San Diego County, could not have looked any better than it did for Jennifer and Jason’s Wedding day.  Tall floral arrangements draped with pearls set the tone for this elegant blush pink Wedding.  (I love blush pink Weddings!)  We had planned this Wedding for a long, long time, and it was wonderful to see every fine detail come into place.  They included a Candy Bar at their reception which is always a hit with the guests!

Nicole and Philip November 8, 2012 Fallbrook San Diego North County Wedding Officiant

2012-11-08 Vasquez Wedding1Many hardships were met with bravery and fortitude as this couple approached their Wedding Day.  We thought we might have to postpone their Fallbrook Wedding on more than one occasion.  But fortunately everything turned out for the best and Nicole and Philip were able to celebrate a beautiful Wedding Day at The Grand Tradition in Fallbrook, North San Diego County!  When hardships are faced with courage and optimism, and everything turns out well, it makes my job as a Fallbrook Wedding Minister even more meaningful!  I know you will achieve all of your goals, my friends.

Hollie and Jeff November 3, 2012 Wine Country Temecula San Diego Wedding Officiant

2012-11-03 Rapipsura WeddingSeriously, any time there is a Wedding with dogs in it – – count me in!!!  Hollie and Jeff could not imagine getting married at Temecula’s Lake Oak Meadows without their “kids” Moto and Endo in the Wedding Party!  They were wrangled by Jeff’s dad, who is also a Jeff.  Endo, the Golden Retriever, was a perfect gentleman.  Moto, the Australian Shepherd, made sure everyone was “herded” into their seats.  I love being a Temecula Wedding Officiant, but when Weddings are as touching and as heartfelt as this one, it makes it all the better.  We also had a Love Letters & Wine Ceremony which brought many of the guests to joyful tears, as this delightful couple continues their journey through life as Husband and Wife!  Cheers to you!

Gina and Jason October 20, 2012 Fallbrook San Diego Wedding Officiant Minister

2012-10-20 Megraw Wedding12012-10-20 Megraw Wedding2Jason and Gina were married on a beautiful fall day at Pala Mesa Resort in North San Diego County.  It was a wedding filled with love of family and friends.  The adorable priest in the photo is Jason’s Uncle Nick, who is a parish priest in Rome.  They would have had him conduct the Ceremony, but his English is not as good as his Italian!  So they asked if I would be a co-Wedding Officiant with Uncle Nick!  How could I say no?  Uncle Nick proved to be so warm and wonderful and I fell in love with him immediately.  He had enough command of the English language that we were able to discuss my travels in Italy and he said I had visited some very beautiful places.  I performed  most of the service, and Uncle Nick did the reading of Scripture and the Closing Blessing in Latin.  I pronounced them Husband and Wife, and then Uncle Nick and I sent them back down the aisle in a shower of rose petals.  I absolutely fell in love with Uncle Nick!  Thank you Pala Mesa Resort for helping to make this all happen so beautifully!  And much love and continued blessings to Gina, Jason and their wonderful families!  Some days, being a San Diego Wedding Minister just doesn’t get any better!

Carina and Carlos October 14, 2012 – Fallbrook San Diego Wedding Minister

2012-10-14 Bursese WeddingIt was an Arbor Terrace Grand Tradition Wedding for Carlos and Carina!  The Wedding Ceremony was most endearing as we included Carlos’ daughters, Devyn and Jade in the Family Sand Ceremony.  First the base layer of white sand to represent that this new family will be blessed by God.  Then the girls did their layers of sand and it was all topped off by Carina and Carlos’ layers of sand.  Everything went beautifully – – especially the portions of the Ceremony I read in Spanish!  A lovely day for a lovely couple.  Thank you so much for allowing me to have the honor of being your Fallbrook Wedding Minister!

Kayleen and Jayson October 5, 2012 Fallbrook / San Diego Wedding Officiant Minster

2012-10-07 Taylor WeddingWelcome to the party, all my rowdy friends,
We’re gonna blow the roof off this place tonight
Are you READY???!
C’mon and get ready
I mean really ready
Are you ready for some football?

Monday Night Football lyrics were definitely descriptive of this Wedding at Pala Mesa Resort in San Diego North County!  The girls were big-time Denver Bronco fans and were dressed in blue and orange.  The guys, well…they were Oakland Raider fans, and their colors were black and silver.  Fortunately, no fights broke out during the Ceremony!  But what was really cute was after the Ceremony, everyone “huddled up” to send the beaming Bride and Groom back down the aisle as Husband and Wife!  Such fun for everyone!  This Fallbrook Wedding Minister job sure has some fun times!

Jennifer and Evan October 4, 2013 Temecula Wine Country San Diego Wedding Officiant

Carolina Page coupleThe Love Story between Jennifer and Evan began when they were teenagers.  Life threw them many difficult situations, but with the strength of their love, and the help of their families, they were finally able to have their most magical Wedding day! The Ceremony was so tender and their love was palpable.  Tears were shed by both the Bride and the Groom as they realized their Wedding was actually taking place!  It was a day of happy tears and a day of much joy.  They presented both of their mothers with keepsake roses as a way of saying “Thanks for all you have done for us.”  Temecula’s Wilson Creek Winery was the venue for this magical affair and I was so blessed to be their Temecula Wedding Officiant!  I will remember both of you with great fondness!

Megan and James September 9, 2012 Temecula Wine Country San Diego Wedding Officiant

2012-09-26 Vanderweilen Wedding1The one word for this Temecula South Coast Winery Wedding was excitement!  Everyone felt the buzz in the air, and the electricity was palpable!  The Bride’s beautiful red hair simply gleamed in the sun, and James dazzling smile beamed during the Wedding Ceremony!  There had been some morning showers, but by the time the afternoon arrived, we had nothing but warm temps and blue skies!  People often ask the Wedding Officiant to help with the weather, and maybe – – just maybe, we might have a little extra pull!  It turned out to be a lovely day with sunshine and everything so clean and fresh from the rain.  The weather smiled on this Temecula Wedding Chaplain today!

2012-09-02-Lucas Wedding-PMR002Beautiful Blues were the vivid and vibrant color for this elegant Wedding for Charita Fay and Carlos at Pala Mesa Resort in Fallbrook in San Diego County!  The tall and stately Bride looked ever so regal as she walked down the aisle into the arms of her adoring Carlos.  Loved the colors, loved the music, loved everything about this Wedding!  As a San Diego Wedding Officiant, I get to see so many beautiful sights, and this was one of them.  Keep on lovin’ your man, Charita!  I know you do!

Steffanie and Alex September 1, 2012 Temecula San Diego Wedding Minister

2012-09-01 Hahn WeddingThe new Ponte Inn at Ponte Winery in Temecula, was the venue for this very romantic Wedding Ceremony for Steffanie and Alex!  As the Wedding Officiant, I always enjoy when members of the family join in the Ceremony.  We were treated to poetry readings in both English and Spanish and every one of the guests felt included.  This lovely couple enjoyed a truly wonderful day, and I was so happy to be a part of all the fun!  Temecula provided us with a day splashed in sunshine and a lovely breeze.  I love being a Wedding Officiant in Temecula!  It’s always like a day of vacation!

Sarah and Clarence September 22, 2012 Orange County San Diego Wedding Minister

2012-08-22 Park Wedding1Imagine a wedding day that includes white tigers, Bengal tigers, zebras, lemurs, macaws, and a host of other animals and exotic sites. Such was the setting for the wedding of Sarah and Clarence. They were married at Rancho Las Lomas in Silverado Canyon in Orange County California. It was a truly amazing wedding in a truly amazing place.  I love my job as an Orange County Wedding Officiant especially when it takes me to new and exotic places for destination weddings. The day was flawlessly crafted by the expert team at Intertwined Events of Orange County. The lead coordinator was Katie Webb, did an absolutely magnificent job pulling everything together.  The Bride floated down the aisle to classical music as the Groom marched down the aisle to the “Imperial March Theme” from “Star Wars.” It was just that kind of wedding. Perfect for the two of them.

Sarah and Ryan August 17, 2012 Temecula Wine Country and San Diego Wedding Officiant

2012-08-17-Hunt Wedding3Hunt1I must admit, I love it when one of my Weddings includes a much loved dog.  In this case, the dog was Jade, who was perfectly behaved and well-wrangled by the Best Man, Curt.  Bride and Groom Sarah and Ryan had a beautiful Wedding at Arbor Terrace Grand Tradition in Fallbrook, San Diego County.  It was a joy working with them and their families from the beginning to end.  Sarah’s mom has a set of entertaining skills that rivals Martha Stewart!  She gave me some tips that I will use for my own party planning from now on!  Sarah and Ryan were the perfect example of how Weddings can be planned from afar.  Ryan was deployed while Sarah did all of the planning by e-mail by and telephone. She is going to be an exemplary military wife who can take care of business while her husband is deployed. Long-distance wedding planning proved to be an easy task for all of us!  I love that the Grand Tradition accommodates our canine friends!

Minerva and Antonio July 22, 2012 Fallbrook San Diego Wedding Officiant Minister

2012-07-22 Saba Wedding5Oh, Oh, Antonio!  From the very first phone call, I knew Antonio was steering the wedding ship, and I was so happy to be working with a groom who was involved with every detail of his wedding to his much beloved, Minerva.  Their wedding at Grand Tradition Arbor Terrace in Fallbrook, San Diego County was lush and steeped in loveliness from beginning to end.  Every aspect of their Ceremony and Wedding was absolutely flawless.  Antonio wanted Minerva to be able to ‘step into her Wedding Day’ without a care in the world, and he made sure that happened!  Antonio, you are a master of detail, and Minerva, you are a lucky lady to have such a devoted husband!  From this San Diego Wedding Chaplain, much love to you both!

Deanna and Brian 2012 Fallbrook San Diego Wedding Officiant Minister

james2No detail was overlooked by the lovely Bride, Deanna or her mother, Rhonda.  These two wonderful ladies know how to put on a wedding in high style.  The beauty of this magic moment was captured by Joseph Guidi.  The Grand Tradition in Fallbrook was the magnificent setting for Brian and Deanna’s nuptials.  Even Brian had to brush away a tear as he saw his beautiful Bride circle the lake in the gleaming white horse and carriage.  Perfection, absolute perfection.  I knew something special was happening when I saw all of the video equipment NR3 was bring out for this wedding.  They did not disappoint.  On days like this, I know I’m doing exactly what I’m supposed to be doing in this life – – being a Fallbrook Wedding Minister!  San Diego County is the perfect place for Weddings!

2012-07-07 Swift Wedding1Fallbrook’s Los Willows was the backdrop for this most wonderful ceremony for Monique and Robbie.  I used “Robert” for the legal portions of the ceremony; Consent, Vows and Pronouncement, but “Robert” is most definitely a “Robbie!”  This couple is all about fun and having as much of it as they can.  And they share my love of dogs too!  It was a delightful day with much joy and laughter.  Maybe I should change my name to Fun, Fallbrook Wedding Officiant!  Rolling a pair of 7’s on 7/7/12, this couple is destined for happiness always!

Hansen1John and Nicole took advantage of Temecula’s South Coast Winery’s Runaway Bride Package and everything was so lovely!  When I arrived, I found Justin Hulse with our Bride in the vineyard taking some beautiful photos.  Their day was glorious and they were surrounded by family and friends.  John and Nicole are both very close to their parents.  They chose to do “Last Kiss/First Kiss.”  Before their Pronouncement as Husband and Wife, they take a moment to give their parents a kiss as their single children.  Then they are pronounced, and share their First Kiss as Husband and Wife!  A lovely and touching tradition.  A Temecula Wedding Chaplain is the best job in the world!  I get to see so much love and so much happiness.  It is a dream job for sure!
