Star Wars

Elvis Kenobi presides over Wedding for Brain Tumor victim in a Star Wars Elvis mashup ceremony. 

   PART ONE

On 12-13-14 I get a panicked call from Nick and Destiny. They need to get married Asap at our Cute Little Wedding Chapel. We set them up for a 10pm wedding. 30 of their friends and friends showed up. They told me the sad news that Nick was just diagnosed with a brain tumor and they needed to get married asap.

So surrounded by friends and family I gave them a wonderful heartfelt ceremony filled with laughter and love.

PART TWO

They were scheduled to get married the following January and when they contacted the venue  the venue was unsympathetic and would not change their date or refund their money. This outraged many around them and Channel 7 news did a story on this (watch original news story below). tumor news

PART THREE

Members of the wedding community rallied around them and together we all set the wheels in motion to do their wedding and donate our time. The White House Restaurant in Anaheim donated their facility and catering and many other vendors jumped on board.

PART FOUR

January 2nd 2016 their new wedding day.

When we designed their ceremony they wanted something very special and different. They were doing a 50s style wedding and wanted me to do Elvis but they were also huge Star Wars Fans. So I designed a mashup ceremony using my Elvis and Star Wars scripts together. I wore my Jedi outfit and Elvis wig and glasses and created………Elvis Kenobi the intergalactic king of rock and roll.

The Wedding party walked in to the Imperial march from the movie then Elvis Kenobi sand the bride down with the Hawaiian Wedding Shon. With references to the star wars movies and Elvis songs the ceremony was filled with laughs, songs and Love. We included the potion ceremony where their Midichlorians were blended together into a tree trunk from the planet Endor. If smoked arised then their love was true. Then did a Sand Ceremony with sand from the planet Tatooine.

It ended with an amazing Kiss and the recessional was to the Star Wars Main theme song.

Channel 7 news showed up and did a follow-up story as shown below. Video

It all ended with a wonderful happy family moments. Nick is tumor free. Yaaaaaa!!!

They gave me an awesome testimonial Video_1

May the force be with you. Elvis has left the galaxy.

Star Wars Wedding Ceremony on May the Fourth Be With You. 

 

 Jessica  & Johnathan Love Star Wars. They wanted to incorporate as much of it into their ceremony as possible. So they got some decorations, some themes knickknacks, creative signs and cake toppers.

Well they didn't want to dress up as a characters themselves they knew they needed something in the ceremony to bring the rebel alliance together.

So they search the Internet to see if they could find the right person to perform the ceremony and of course they found Alan Katz – The master of themed weddings

I discuss with them different ideas and things to incorporate into the ceremony and wrote and created a wonderful Star Wars themed ceremony.

I created a Midicolrian test where they combined their Midicolrians together (colored water) into a tree stump from the Moon of Endor. If steam arose from if they were a match and of course it did (it was filled with dry ice) 

 They did a sand blending ceremony with their children using sand from Tattooine (michaels). 

They exchanged creative Star Wars vows that's spoke of keeping the force strong and defeating The empire.

I brought greetings from Chewbacca and R2-D2 and Yoda. 

The ceremony took place at the Hilton in Costa Mesa. They did a great job and everybody was happy. 

May the force be with you all. 

I can't wait to see episode seven.

From Beverly Hills to Long Beach, Octavio performs two great ceremonies

o1

Celeste & Alonso's wedding took place at a Beverly Hills home. The joy and love between them was so contagious!
Their families and close friends gathered around us in the home's yard making it a more intimate ceremony, which was exactly what the couple desired.
We did a bilingual non-denominational ceremony so that everyone could be a part of it. It came out beautifully!
Celeste & Gonzalo, I wish you all the blessings in the World!!!!

o2

Viridiana & Alonso's wedding took place at Skylinks Golf Course in Long Beach. This ceremony was such a blast!!!!

They are clearly best friends and have such a unique and extraordinary connection. They wanted me to make a few jokes throughout the ceremony so that it wouldn't be too serious. We worked together in accomplishing this and the jokes they came up with were hilarious!

We added a joke in the opening of the ceremony and then a huge twist in their "I Do's" which made everyone laugh out loud!

Then we got to the ring exchange. When I called for the rings, the Best Man couldn't find them. Everybody started panicking and, oh oh, wait a minute what's that sound? R2D2 starts strolling around the wedding guests with non other than the pillow and rings. Yes you read it right, the real R2D2 came and saved the day!!! He came to the front and the Best Man took the rings from him. This was such an awesome moment!!!! And a first for me.

We then proceeded with the sand ceremony and after I pronounced them Husband & Wife they all got in golf carts and went for a ride around the golf course.

Alonso & Viridiana knocked it out of the park with their creativity and jokes!!!! I loved loved loved officiating their wedding!!!!!

Alonso & Viridiana, thank you for giving me the honor of officiating your wedding! I wish you guys all the blessings in the world!!!!!
