Every Week, I bring you the best wedding stories, stuff, events and deals in Los Angeles and from around the web. And we call it Wedding Wise Wednesday. Welcome!
Cool Wedding Thing of the Week:
I officiated Rebecca and Gareth's wedding last Friday at Elysian, and they asked me to help them create an English tea wedding ritual for them. Rebecca's English and Gareth is from New Zealand, so drinking tea is a big part of their culture. We used a tea set from the many in Rebecca's collection. As they poured tea for each other and drank, I recited:
Gareth and Rebecca have also created a new ritual of their own - An English tea ceremony- to symbolize their commitment to each other and their new life from this day forward. Rebecca, Gareth, a pot of tea is one constant that you will share together for the rest of your lives - when you wake, before you sleep, in good times, and in bad. Whatever the day brings, you will begin and end it by facing the world as one, strong in your love for each other.
I was so happy that I was able to give them what they wanted, and I can't wait to see the photographer's pictures of it. It was pretty neat. Thank you to Great Officiants for giving me the best side-job, ever. Now, go make this viral!
I think I'm finally getting this iphone picture taking thing down. Here are Gareth and Rebecca's flower girls, rocking it out on the currently empty dance floor. They got company pretty quick, though!
And a shot from Kristi and Chris's wedding at Point Vicente in Palos Verdes. Not just a gorgeous night, but earlier? There were whales!
