Plunge – Los Angeles Ordained Minister

As a Los Angeles ordained minister and a Long Beach native, I have been able to explore the city’s manifold restaurants like few others. From the shadiest of bars to elegant eateries and hole in the wall coffee shops, my weddings and personal exploration have taken me everywhere in the city. Few places eclipse their competition in jaw-dropping grandeur like Plunge.

Located at 1900 Ocean Boulevard on a bluff overlooking the coastline, Plunge provides some of the best views in town and possibly the best at a restaurant. Those tables closest to the windows, unobstructed by anything else, present you with nearly 180 degree panoramas stretching from the Palos Verdes Peninsula to Long Beach’s southernmost tip and further.

Seal Beach Pier – Orange County Wedding Officiant at Top 10 Great Locations

As an Orange County Wedding Officiant, I have seen Seal Beach grow from a quiet seaside town to a popular destination surfers, beach-goers, and sightseers. Luckily, its expansion has not been a detriment to its charm. Walking down Seal Beach’s restaurant-lined Main Street, its perennial quaintness is still in abundance.

The center of Seal Beach – both in a geographical and sightseeing sense – is the Seal Beach Municipal Pier where Main Street meets the water and the Pier begins. Take a stroll on the Pier to see panoramic views in all directions: Downtown Huntington Beach to your left, the Long Beach skyline to your right, and the boundless sun-kissed ocean straight ahead.

Bluff Park – Long Beach Wedding Minister

As a Long Beach wedding minister, I have been to Bluff Park hundreds of times for marriage ceremonies and on leisurely walks. The grassy Bluff Park stretches along almost a mile of cliffside overlooking bright yellow sands and an azure ocean. The height of Bluff Park above the beach presents unobstructed panoramic views of the Southern California coast, stretching from the Palos Verdes Peninsula to Huntington Beach and beyond.

At one end of Bluff Park sits the charming Long Beach Art Museum. Its signature dark brown wooden exterior makes the building itself a Long Beach landmark. But venturing inside and to the museum’s quaint courtyard greets you with its modest but stunning art collection. For a catered wedding reception, your wedding entourage can dine at Claire’s at the Museum.

Getty Center – LA Wedding Officiant

As an LA wedding officiant, I have been a part of civil ceremonies at every venue imaginable – large ballrooms, small restaurants, very public amusement parks, and intimate backyard hot tubs. But the Getty Center, with its sleek but stunning architecture and its massive collection of artwork, is one of the best and will surely enchant every wedding guest, not to mention the lucky couple.

La Wedding Officiant

Sustained by the J. Paul Getty Trust, the Getty Center opened in 1997. The complex’s unique white facade is uniquely modern while still calling back to previous eras of human history. The Getty Center finds itself straddling two ridges on the outskirts of the city bordering the prosperous Bel Air neighborhood. Its prime location offers some of the best views in Los Angeles. In the foreground sit beautiful mansions, and in the distance high-rise buildings mixed among the unique neighborhoods that provide Los Angeles with its charm.

Point Dume – Getting Married in LA

In my four decades as a wedding minister in Los Angeles, I have officiated thousands of ceremonies at numerous wedding venues for people getting married in LA. Some of these venues I have only been to once, others multiple times. Few, however, are as popular as Point Dume. I have been fortunate to be part of dozens, if not hundreds of wedding ceremonies at Point Dume. Every time I’m here I am taken aback by its awe-inspiring natural beauty.

Malibu is known for its beaches and cliff sides, but nowhere are the two appealing wedding day features more majestically melded on this stunning promontory. Jutting outward from the hills and slicing the beaches below in two, the Point Dume promontory has unrivaled views of the Pacific Ocean and the distant Channel Islands.

Hilltop Park – Wedding Officiant Long Beach CA

As a wedding officiant Long Beach CA, I have taken part in numerous ceremonies at Hilltop Park. You don’t truly realize the height of Signal Hill until you’re at the top. From ground level, it seems like a minor bump in Long Beach’s otherwise level terrain. But at Hilltop Park, you’re greeted with breathtaking views of the entirety of Los Angeles County.

To the south the Long Beach skyline soars above the rest of the city. Farther in the distance to the north the astonishing high-rises of Downtown Los Angeles declare themselves the heart of California. On clear days the completely unobstructed mountains display themselves in all their glory with snow-covered faces or verdant visages depending on the time of year.

Getty Villa – Pacific Palisades Wedding Venue

Located above the sunny Pacific Coast, the Getty Villa is a spectacular Pacific Palisades wedding venue for any and every couple. Although thousands of miles away from Europe, the Getty Villa is reminiscent of an aristocratic European estate. Constructed in the 1950s by oil tycoon J. Paul Getty, the Getty Villa’s facade was modeled after the Greco-Roman architecture of the ancient world. On the inside is a museum dedicated to the civilizations of ancient Greece and Rome, featuring priceless artifacts and sculptures. Along with its sister museum (the Getty Center, located approximately five miles away), the Getty Villa holds innumerable cultural relics and works of art.
