Yesterday I performed a baby blessing for little 4-month-old Brady.

We held the blessing in the very same location where I officiated his parents’ wedding ceremony two years , on the little beach in front of Candelas Coronado.

It was a spectacular sunny San Diego afternoon, and Brady was a gurgling bundle of joy.

These moments of celebration put everything in perspective — daily frustrations, concerns, worries — they float away for awhile, as we remember how great it is to be on this planet right now.

One of the most beautiful spots for a wedding ceremony is offered by Candelas on Coronado. Toes in the sand, lapping waves and a backdrop of America’s Finest City – downtown San Diego.

Even better was officiating the wedding ceremony for Jen and Jon on October 5. What a sweet couple!!

“Jon and I cannot thank you enough for officiating our wedding. The ceremony was so beautiful because of you. We will always remember your kind words and how comfortable you made us feel on a day when we were already excited and anxious. Thank you for helping us personalize our ceremony. It was perfect and we loved it. Thank you! Jen & Jon”

The couple borrowed from her family’s love of the ocean and sailing. For their unity ceremony they “tied the knot”.

Just Married! Jon and Jen really played up their oceanfront ceremony, with starfish hanging from the arch.
