Tattoo vows at the OC Mining Company

When Erin and Jack came in for their wedding meeting I saw that he was tatted up. I told them of the tattoo vows I wrote and the wanted it incorporated in their ceremony.

It goes something like this

Love is like a tattoo. You see it on the wall and you like it on your arm. It’s a little painful at first but you and do her. Everyone admires your new tattoo.
But then as the years go on your tattoo starts to fade and you wonder why did I get this and it’s a real pain to get rid of. But your tattoo, your love, will get brighter as the years go on and everyone’s going to wonder….. where can I get a tattoo, where can I get a love just like that.

Their ceremony was a blast. Their guests were very excited and got all kinds of compliments after the ceremony.

Prayers on the beach.

A beach wedding can be a big affair with lots of friends and family or it can just be the two sharing your love by the crashing waves.

This beautiful couple decided they just wanted the 2 of them me and somebody to capture it on film.

This took place in Laguna Beach and it’s a beautiful beach and a nice hike down to it.

They shared their love and their vows and then at the end a wonderful prayer.

It doesn’t get much better than this.

A Bride Cuts all Ties with Her Father

A funny ceremony story shared by Rev. Ralph:

All eyes were on the radiant bride as her father escorted her down the aisle. They reached the altar and the waiting groom, the bride kissed her father and placed something in his hand.

The guests in the front pews responded with ripples of laughter. Even the priest smiled broadly.

As her father gave her away in marriage, the bride gave him back his credit card.

A tale of three beaches Laguna Hermosa and Malibu

Today I transversed Southern California’s beach communities.

My first wedding today was at the beautiful Tivoli Terrace in Laguna Beach. I love this place and I have a beautiful wedding chapel above their ceremony site.

Next I was off to her most of beach where we wanted out to the sand with 30 of their friends and did delightful ceremony right on the beach.

Then the trip down to Malibu to one of my favorite spots Point Dume.
With waves crashing in the background and surrounded by 35 of their favorite friends and family they exchange vows and rings and a beautiful spot right at the point.

It’s been a long day but when I look at the sun setting in the background over the ocean it’s been well worth it. I made three families very happy today and that’s why I do what I do.

“Footman Bring The Rings” at this Disney wedding

One of my favorite things about doing a Disney wedding is when the couple hires the coach and horses from Cinderella.

The bride arrives in the coach and the footman helps her down off the coach and then she’s escorted down the aisle by her chosen family member.

At the point of the ceremony where it’s time for the rings I yell out “Footman Bring The Rings”. He then walks down the aisle with a pillow holding a glass slipper which hold the rings.

At the end of the ceremony after the kiss the bride and groom walk the carriage get in and are whisked away around the grounds to spend their special moments together.

It is so romantic!!

Ralph battles the bugs to get to the vows

Rev. Ralph officiated at the wedding of Leah and Andrew at the beautiful Calamigos Ranch in Malibu on Saturday June 23. A string trio set the mood and a joyful and fun gathering of friends and family (not to mention numerous little bugs) all enjoyed the ceremony. The sand ceremony which was included had a unique twist: the sand was poured, not into another glass vessel, but into a hollow picture frame with a photo of the bride and groom in it–the sand made a lovely backdrop!

Congratulations to Howard and Michelle who renewed their wedding vows today after 15 years of marriage. They did so in the pines of Griffith Park just under the gorgeous architecture of the Observatory, with a large crowd watching from above. The Bride's Father and Brother surprised her from England just before the ceremony.

Many more years of happiness to come for Howard and Michelle, Good Job you two!!!
