This young fun loving couple would have stole your heart if you had witnessed their nuptials. The ceremony was heals at the gorgeous Pacific Palisades Park Gazebo in Dana Point Ca, over looking the ocean. The New Jersey bride wore an immaculate white mermaid style gown with a lace low back. The groom a pinstriped royal blue suit that looked pristine and made him look very dapper. The mother of the groom, Lola came all the way from Spain and sang,"Ave Maria," needless to say there was not a dry eye in the house. I consider myself blessed to have been able to officiate their ceremony.
Tip Number One:
When deciding the time you should put on your invitations for the Ceremony to commence, please keep in mind that there will always be a certain number of guest who will show up at least 10 to 15 minutes lates. That and sometmines more OFTEN than not the bride will be a little late (acceptable). Therefore, for example if you would like your ceremony to start at 4:30 sharp then your invitations should have the ceremony time of 4:00 pm. I will be there early but you want to have all your guest sitting down awaiting for your arrival.
A rehearsal is always in your best interest. It's a big day DO NOT have your processional sloppy. Instead have a full fledge ceremony rehearsal and have a coordinater (could be a family member who is not shy), assist the day of to signal the bridal party to start the procession and recession.
