Congratulations to Alba Yanez & Erick Jauregui on their Saturday, May 4, 2019 wedding at the Silver Lakes Equestrian Center in Norco, CA.  It was a beautiful day with a slight breeze for the outdoor ceremony attended by their 150 guests.  It was a simple ceremony with no bridal party and Erick walking in with his mom.  I wish Alba and Erick the best as they begin their new life together.

Congratulations to Sabrina Gonzalez & Brian Bauer on their Friday, May 3, 2019 wedding at the Champion’s Club at The Retreat in Corona, CA.  It was a beautiful day -- not too hot, not too cold – for their 60 family and friends at the scenic outdoor ceremony.   The coordinator, DJ and photographer all did an exceptional job.  They included a Rose ceremony for their moms (Brians mom’s rose was accepted by his sister Michelle).  After the ceremony, guests enjoyed cocktails on the lawn followed by a dinner reception on the outdoor patio.  My best to Sabrina & Brian as they begin their journey together.

Congratulations to Raluca Malancioiu & Neal Ghura on their Saturday, April 27, 2019 wedding at a private residence in Villa Park, CA.  It was an intimate ceremony attended by 30 of their close friends and family.  They are planning a larger ceremony in September for their many friends and family with yet a third ceremony next year in Romania for family who where unable to travel.  My best to the very happy couple.  See you in September!

​​​Congratulations to Elizabeth Santillan & Jonathan Daly on their Saturday, March 9, 2019 wedding at the Lakewood Country Club in Lakewood, CA.  It was a simple but meaningful ceremony attended by 120 guests on the outdoor lawn at the country club.  It was a comfortable “cool” spring California day.  So, guests were able to sit back and enjoy the nuptials!  The sun was glaring a bit, but nothing we couldn’t handle.  My best to Elizabeth and Jonathan.  

​​​Congratulations to Carrie Thompson & Dave Pflugrath on their St. Patrick’s Day (Sunday, March 17, 2019) wedding on Home Plate at the entrance to Angel Stadium in Anaheim, CA.  I was a small ceremony attended by their children.  My best to Carrie and Dave and the new united family.

​​​Congratulations to Olya Zakharova & Mike Kollen on their St. Patrick’s Day (Sunday, March 17, 2019) wedding on the beach in Laguna Beach, CA.  I was a small ceremony attended by Mike’s parents and one guest.  After the ceremony, they were headed for lunch.  My best to Olya and Mike and, soon to arrive, Nona.

Congratulations to Tiffany Gutierrez & Uriel Armenta on their Saturday, February 23, 2019 wedding at the Marinaj Banquet Center in Moreno Valley, CA.  It was a simple ceremony attended by their 100+ guests.  The ceremony started on time with the DJ and photographer at their best.  Following the ceremony guests enjoyed cocktails while the ceremony area was being set up for dinner and the newlyweds took indoor and outdoor photos.  My best to Tiff & Uriel for a great life together!

​Congratulations to DeAndria Cloud & Ron Krueger on their Monday, December 31, 2018 wedding at a private residence in San Clemente, CA.  It was a private, intimate ceremony with no guests in attendance.  The knot was tied on a terrace with the Pacific Ocean in the background, on a beautiful southern California day.  My best to DeAndria & Ron!

​Congratulations to Reina Ixtlahuac & Al Vick on their Saturday, December 28, 2018 wedding at the Veranda at the Green River Golf Course in Corona, CA.  The ceremony  was attended by approximately 120 guests and included a Rose presentation to their moms and grandmothers and Reina’s stepmom.  The sun went down, the wind picked up and the temperature DROPPED!  It was cold, to say the least.  But, the ceremony went on with some laughs and serious moments, while the guests remained seated and weren’t affected by the weather.  My best for a great life together! 

​Congratulations to Ganga Dhakal & Bhagirathi Ghimire on their Friday, December 28, 2018 wedding at The Rose Garden in Trilogy at Glen Ivy in Temescal Valley (Corona), CA.  It was an intimate ceremony with just two guests attending.  The couple traveled from Louisiana for a “sunny” Southern California ceremony.  My best to Ganga and Bhagirathi!

​Congratulations to Liane Jacob & Tom Glenn on their Thursday, December 27, 2018 ceremony at Inspiration Point in Corona del Mar, CA.  It was an intimate ceremony of a longtime personal friend attended by their immediate families and three close friends including myself and my wife, Marlene.  The ceremony was held on a hill overlooking the Pacific Ocean in a town in Newport Beach, CA.  After the ceremony the guests were invited to a luncheon at the Pelican Hill Resort followed by a reception at a private residence in Irvine.  It was my honor to officiate this ceremony and Marlene and I wish Liane and Tom the best life has to offer!

Congratulations to Tina Nguyen & Daniel Whitlock on their Friday, December 21, 2018 wedding at the Indian Cove Amphitheater at Joshua Tree National Park in Twentynine Palms, CA.  It was a small wedding attended by approximately 45 family and close friends in a beautiful desert/mountain setting of Joshua Tree National Park.  They included a Rose presentation to their moms in the ceremony which we completed just prior to sunset and at the time the chill came in.  After the ceremony the Northern California couple and their guests headed to Palm Springs for a dinner reception.  My best to the new family!

Congratulations to Jeune Belmore & Greg Boshart on their private ceremony on Wednesday, December 19, 2018 at the Inn at Laguna in Laguna Beach, CA.  This happy couple made the journey from Texas to “sunny” Southern California to have a private ceremony with no guests in attendance on a beautiful terrace overlooking the Pacific Ocean.  My best as they continue their journey! ​
