Beautiful Destination Wedding in Grand Cayman * Kyle + Andrew * Caribbean Club

Three days in paradise with a wonderful group of people. This family and their friends could not have been nicer or more fun. They all enjoyed a beautiful sunset cruise with Red Sail Sports following their rehearsal. The next morning was deep sea fishing with all the guys. The beach front wedding and reception was at the beautiful Caribbean Club on Grand Cayman. Family Brunch the next day is always one of my favorites. Special thanks to Parfait Weddings & Events for all of your expert guidance.

Thank you Kyle and Andrew for your fabulous review on Wedding Wire.
“Booking John with Godfather Films to shoot our wedding was the best planning decision we made. We did a destination wedding in Grand Cayman and our video included 3 days of footage along with scenic island shots. As a wedding planner myself I have extremely high standards when in comes to vendors, and John was everything I could have hoped for and then some. All of my guests commented on how great he was and how non intrusive he was with the cameras. I couldn’t have asked for a better video when all was said and done! We have watched our video over and over with family and wedding guests as well as friends and family who couldn’t make it to the wedding and everybody has agreed it is one of the best wedding videos they have seen! I would highly recommend Godfather Films to any couple looking to work with the best in the business!! THANK YOU JOHN!!”

Armand Jay Mastroianni – Memories by the Employees of Jay’s Catering

It is with great sadness that the Mastroianni Family and all of us at Jay’s Catering must say goodbye to Jay Mastroianni, our beloved husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather, founder and friend. Jay passed away May 16th 2013 in Garden Grove, California. He was greatly loved by all and will be in our hearts and memories forever.

Please enjoy this film featuring the employees of Jay’s Catering as they share the stories and memories of Jay.

Armand J. Mastroianni, 83, founder of Jay’s Catering, died peacefully May 16, 2013, in Anaheim, Ca. A resident of Garden Grove, and former resident of Rochester, Pa., he was born September 15, 1929, in Greenvale, Long Island, New York, to Giovanni and Maria Mastroianni. The son of Italian immigrant parents, he grew up on the estates of wealthy men, such as J.P. Morgan, the Rockefellers and Percy R. Pine, where his father worked as a gardening superintendent.

A self-styled entrepreneur, Mastroianni started several small businesses in Long Island, New York, and Pittsburgh, Pa., including shoe repair and soda delivery, before settling in Garden Grove in 1958. He was employed by Excelsior Creamery and Rockview Dairy. In 1967, he went into business for himself. His new company, Jay’s Catering, grew into a fleet of 37 catering trucks, which for years serviced the booming construction industry, as well as the beaches and schools in Orange County. By the early 1970s, Jay, employing the help of his wife, daughter and sons, switched exclusively to social catering. Today the multi-million dollar, family- owned and operated company is one of the largest caterers in southern California.

He is survived by his wife, the former Eleanor Rubino, with whom he would have celebrated 60 years of marriage on July 25, three children, Linda Loaeza, John Mastroianni and Michael Mastroianni; eleven grandchildren, Michael Ring, Christy Ring, Brian Barragan, Armand J. Barragan, Uriel Loaeza Jr., Jacob Loaeza, Michael Mastroianni Jr., Nicholas Mastroianni, Vincent Mastroianni, Alison James and Alexandra Mastroianni; seven great grandchildren, as well as his beloved dog, Bocci.

Alex said…
John was an absolute pleasure to work with! I asked Godfather Films to do the videography, photobooth, and add a projection for my wedding and I could not be happier with the results. He is singularly talented at videography, the photobooth came with loads of fun props and everyone loved it, he created custom images for our pictures, and his assistants were extremely accommodating and courteous. I highly, highly recommend him!!!
