Jessica and Alvin were wed at the Green Gables Estate in San Marcos, CA. It was like stepping into a lovely painting, a large white washed house where the wedding party were getting ready, large Victorian furniture adorning the  green grassy yard. Close friends and family supported these two and emotions were running high, especially when Jessica’s father gave her away and asked Alvin to take care of his baby girl. He then read his vows to her, cleverly inserting quotes from their favorite movies together into his vows. It was a beautiful retreat into their love story, and we were all honored to be apart of it.

This Wedding Walked The Road Less Traveled !

rogerjeffshannon1
Roger’s wedding this last weekend at the French Estate was most unique !! And so was the couple Jeff & Shannon.  They were a fun loving, care free, crazy great couple !  And they wanted their wedding to reflect that too !  They certainly wanted to do things differently……For the wedding processional, they walked out together side by side, they had carnival games at their ceremony and she looked stunning in her beautiful white dress and bright red hair.  They were a hoot !  And Roger pulled out all the stops for them too !  It was one for the books !  A wonderful wedding !

A Lovely Wedding in the Lovely Rolling Hills Estates in Palos Verdes

FullSizeRender
Taylor and Alex had their wedding in the lovely Rolling Hills Estates in Palos Verdes and everyone was in attendance, even several peacocks showing off their plumage. The peacocks also showed their enthusiasm and support by squawking throughout the ceremony. This also could have been because it's their mating season. Taylor was pretty darn nervous before the ceremony but her lovely sister Jill was right on cue, with perfectly timed witty jokes to lighten the mood. When I found out the mother of the Groom, Sonia, was from my neck of the woods in Texas, I felt right at home. Once the ceremony was over, Taylor showed off her silly side by taking a picture as the minister as if she was marrying Alex and I. There couldn't have been a more unique ceremony with such personality!

Daniel & Kelli

Roger officiated at the incredibly unique and wonderful Carondelet House in Los Angeles this last weekend for Daniel and Kelli, a really great couple who wanted both heart & humor in their ceremony and that’s just what they got!!  They also followed a great Japanese tradition……with 1,000 origami cranes in attendance!!

Japanese lore holds that the crane is one of three holy creatures that can live for 1,000 years. After folding 1,000 origami paper cranes, one for each year of its life, the majestic “bird of happiness” is able to carry that person’s prayers to heaven. This has been a tradition of many Japanese weddings by wishing good luck to the bride & groom thru these 1,000 cranes; however, not many couples will take the time to fold 1,000 cranes!!!  No so with Daniel and Kelli, all 1,000 were folded and present at their wedding assuring the greatest of luck to them as they begin their journey as a married couple…… Roger would like to say he had a hand in the good luck as well!!

Beautiful Ceremonies With Pris…

Clarke Estate 3
Here are two lovely stories of wonderful ceremonies performed by our Officiant Pris, and told by her as well:

MOVING INTO SOMETHING BIGGER AS A MARRIED COUPLE

The beautiful Clarke Estate in Santa Fe Springs, was the location for the mid-afternoon nuptials, of two lovely people whose chance meeting at a karaoke bar led to true love and true happiness!

And as a bright yellow butterfly graced them with its presence, the bride & groom’s tender personal vow exchange was followed by a contemporary version of the Unity Cup, symbolically blending their two lives along with the lives of their families, sponsors and friends.

This semi-religious, semi-formal custom ceremony, written and led by Great Officiant Pris Munson, included the telling of their unique love story & vision of marriage, along with their choice of a reading in “These are the hands…”

 

OVER A DECADE IN THE MAKING

At the Calamigos

037
Equestrian Center, as the sun was setting on our couple’s old life, family & friends gathered to witness these two best friends finally tying the knot!

There’s is a love story like no other.

You see, way back when, our bride’s platonic male roommate kept insisting that she had to meet his co-worker, a fellow butler at the Playboy Mansion.  She was very emphatic that that was just not going to happen.  Then one day, while channel surfing, she ran across a cable program taking viewers on a tour of the Mansion.  Curious, of course, she watched.   And as she did, one particular butler caught her eye.  So when her roommate came home that night, she continued to insist that under no circumstances would she meet the butler he was trying to fix her up with.  However, there was this other butler, that she would consider meeting… the one she had seen in a shot in the kitchen.  And as she described him to her roommate, he just smiled that all-knowing smile, because the one who had caught her eye, was The Guy he wanted her to meet.

How about that?  Pretty crazy, huh?

So after some initial conversations, they met in person, and as the Universe would

022
have it, they hit it off!  But life would intervene, and after several fits and starts, our couple settled into their relationship, and tonight, made it official!

Many tears of joy were shed throughout their romantic, custom ceremony led by Great Officiant Pris Munson, that included the Blessing of the Stones, a community vow, parent thank yous, beautiful poetry, laughter and an outpouring of love as their unique story was celebrated by all!
