Newlyweds of the week

Cynthia and Ricardo

Cynthia Sarah Mery and Ricardo Cano

This young fun loving couple would have stole your heart if you had witnessed their nuptials. The ceremony was heald 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; the groom a pinstriped royal blue suit that looked made him look like he just walked off the set of "Mad Men." 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.

Tips for the Bride and Groom


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. 

Second Tip:

 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.
