I had the honor of performing Mr. and Mrs. Guerrero's wedding at Gaillardia Country Club with 200+ guests in attendance.
Two cultures became one on the evening of Sunday, September 3rd, 2017, Andres of Colombian decent and Cynthia of Mexican decent; professed their love to one another by joining in marriage. Family members from Colombia and Mexico traveled to Oklahoma City to be part of their special day. A large gathering of family and friends witnessed Andres and Cynthia say their "I dos" at the majestic Gaillardia Country Club Gazebo.
The wedding ceremony was a religious one that also accommodated non-English speakers by performing a bilingual wedding script.
The highlight of the wedding ceremony was including the traditional lazo & arras (lasso & coins) ceremony. It was one of the most elegant weddings that I've been a part of. Best wishes to Andres and Cynthia!
Israel and Maria married at Kite Park in Nichols Hills, OK. The lovely couple were surrounded by family & friends that traveled from El Paso, Texas and Mexico to be part of their special day. Two large families became one as the newlyweds exchanged loving vows to one another.
For the most part of the day it rained in Oklahoma City! Even major highways were shut down due to high waters rising throughout the metro. The couple and I were debating if we should try for another day since the metro was soaked in rain. However, later that afternoon the skies cleared up and I was able to get them married. It is always a joy performing ceremonies for our country's active men and women serving in the military. Best wishes to Israel and Maria!

One of my favorite ceremonies this wedding season! Best wishes to Ricardo and Jenny!
Tran and Peyshia married at the 21C Museum in Downtown Oklahoma City. On the day of their anniversary, the couple requested a small intimate wedding ceremony that was based on Buddhism. The wedding was held on top of the penthouse suite at the 21C Museum on midnight at the place where they first said; "I love you" to each other! How sweet is that?
The last-minute planning of their wedding ceremony created an experience of breathtaking skyscraper views of Oklahoma City. Tran and Peyshia's faces lit up with joy and happiness as they professed their love to one another on the private terrace of the penthouse. It was a perfect setting by a garden that was bursting with plants & flowers just as the couple wanted.
Afterwards, the couple gave me a tour of the 2200 sq ft luxury penthouse that was decorated with contemporary furniture, art work from various local artists, cool colors, fresh flowers, and sweet invigorating aromatics that penetrated the room. I joined the couple for a toast with champagne and hors d'oeuvres to celebrate their nuptials. It was a one of a kind experience and my first time marrying a Buddhist couple. Congratulations to Tran and Peyshia!
Review from the bride: "It was absolutely perfect! I would definitely recommend Rev. Yareni Alvarado for wedding officiant services. It was very memorable. We were very pleased. Thank you very much for everything!"
