Vow Renewal from South Africa

Lara and Shawn stopped by Laguna Beach during their six month around-the-world honeymoon tour to re-say their Vows in front of family and friends here in California. We were in the gazebo in laguna Beach, and they went down to the beach to do their "after" pictures.
You can too! Our gazebo photo special is only $925.00 and includes everything!

Vendors hard at work

This is the gorgeous 5-star St. Regis Hotel in Monarch Beach, California. The videographer and photographer are getting some great shots of the bride and groom. They did a lst dance in this grand staircase area. There was a grand piano over in the corner which I played while the B&G danced. This is our PLATNUM ELOPEMENT PACKAGE which starts at $1,775.00 and includes the romantic wedding ceremony, either on the property or at the beach, photos, video, cake & champagne, flowers, and first dance. It's all about the TWO OF YOU!

Shell Cake

If you are having a beach wedding, consider this beautiful shell wedding cake! We used REAL shells from the beach - the bride had requested the lavender icing. And this is a chocolate cake.

This is the Sampson Overlook Gazebo in Dana Point. It looks out to all the boats in the harbor and the ocean is in the background. As you can see, you need a professional photographer to take the pictures. I took this with my Kodak digital camera, but the professional camera with better lens or sustained flash can compensate for the light from the ocean and you get better pictures. This is our deluxx gazebo decorations - really pretty! And you get the location, the decorations, music, processional coordination, and one hour of photos for $925!! This special is good from now until March 31st 2010. Remember, it is always "summertime" during the day in California. And the sun sets in the ocean in the Winter.
Call me 949-433-3129 - and I'll make it happen for YOU!!!!!!!!!! Marcy Ann

Cupcakes and Cake

This is a cute way to do cake at an outdoor park. You notice the one layer cake on top for the bride and groom to cut and the guests get a decorated cupcake. My bakery Solomon's in Lake Forest will do this for you!

Here's my bride and groom from yesterday. We met in the gazebo and took the picture of the five generations of women. And then down to the sand for the beach wedding. Gramma was 90 years old and she was able to walk up and down the 25 steps to get down to the beach! The bride had her bouquet made to match the pattern of her dress and his shirt. Really pretty!

Hi Marcy Ann-
Thank you so much for performing such a beautiful ceremony for David and me. It was perfect! I wanted to send you a couple pictures. Feel free to use them, and to use David and I as a reference.
Best wishes-
Jo Ann & David
Cleveland, Ohio

My New Book

Last night I spoke at the Tustin Library in Orange County about what to do while you are waiting for Mr. Right. The picture is from the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books last April.
I encouraged the single women who came to hear me speak last night to become an independent and self-sufficient woman who did not need any one in her life to be happy. "Make yourself happy!" I told them. I encourage single women to take charge of their life, to find out what their passion is, what is the purpose for their life, and then get going! I also told them if they are living with a man and they are not married, that they should change that situation. "Get out on your own and make it yourself." And stay autonomous until a man asks you to be his wife! Not a live-in girl friend!! And then we will plan your wedding together! xoxo Marcy Ann

Ocean Beauty

This was our wedding this week - isn't this gorgeous! Beautiful fresh flowers - the bride wore a pale yellow shimmery sheath dress and her bouquet was pale yellow roses with white tulips - so pretty! We used fresh yellow roses and yellow lilies down the aisle and on the arch.
It was a beautiful California day with deep blue skies, blue ocean, green palm trees and green grass. When can I do this for you?

Sweeney Todd

I also met Sweeney Todd!


This is a couple who came to a Halloween party dressed as a bride and groom, but I found out that they were newlyweds, so we did their lst year vow renewal in the backyard at the party!
This is the bride's actual dress and the groom's actual tux that they were originally married in.
She also wore the hat at her wedding. Pretty!
