I was so excited when Andrea and Jimmy invited me to be their Pomona wedding officiant. I was even more excited when they told me it was at their old stomping grounds – Cal Poly Pomona, where they met. The campus is the home of the famous Kellogg House (of Kellogg cereal fame), a beautiful historical mansion that overlooks the campus yet still feels tucked away. All the gorgeous historical details lent to an intimate, simple yet old-world atmosphere to their practical wedding that suited them brilliantly.

When Jimmy and Andrea contacted me about being their Pomona wedding officiant, they expressed wanting a calm, easy-going ceremony. They specifically wanted to celebrate their love of music and the home they have found in New Orleans. They returned to California and their alma mater to celebrate with their families, who still live here. Most importantly, they wanted a simple wedding with lots of love and no stress.

All of their details really reflected their thoughtful, relaxed style.

Other than Andrea’s shoes and the light Mardi Gras theme, my favorite part about their ceremony was that they requested this specific quote (on of my favorite new wedding quotes):

No union is more profound than marriage, for it embodies the highest ideals of love, fidelity, devotion, sacrifice, and family. In forming a marital union, two people become something greater than once they were.
Justice Anthony Kennedy

As a Pomona wedding officiant, it was a dream to celebrate this serene, loving couple and share their love in an intimate and simple way. And with mimosas!
