ABC Inland Empire Meeting Mission Inn 1-27-2009

The historic Mission Inn was the venue for this years first meeting of the Association of Bridal Consultants/ Inland Empire.

We took a tour of the chapel where I have done countless weddings, yet was unaware of the history of the chapel. The unique gold alter was from private estate in Mexico and the leaded glass window are Tiffani. Who knew?

A lovely Surf and Turf meal was served and the presentation was given by a top notch wedding coordinator, Mary Dann.

Ascension Cemetery Lake Forest 1-16-2009

The Ascension Cemetery in Lake Forest was the final resting place for this decedent. I got lost on the way over there and was concerned that I would be late, but as it turned out, so did the police escort! We all arrived together!

San Francisco Solano Catholic Church 1-16-2009

This unique service was held first at the church and was almost all harp music! A first for me. I played for nearly one hour, then rushed over to the cemetery for the burial.

Funeral @ Harvest Christian Fellowship Riverside 1-14-2009

This funeral was well attended and held in a massive sanctuary. They had several guest pastors, a guitarist, and yours truly on the harp.

The Hacienda Jan 2, 2009

The Hacienda is a lovely jewel, located in the heart of Orange County. This evening wedding was held on a chilly, Jan Friday evening, but the spirits were high and the feeling was very warm indeed.
