The Perfect Wedding and Wedding Venue

Calamigos Ranch is a one of a kind wedding venue.  Not only is its location buried amongst the trees in Malibu, but it has many different settings on its grounds to have that perfect wedding. And Roger’s favorite is the Oak Room.  With that stunning waterfall as the backdrop, it lends itself to creating that perfect memory for the perfect wedding.  Now the only thing that Bobby & Meg, Roger’s wedding couple this last weekend, needed was the perfect ceremony to go with that perfect location.  And this is where Roger steps in.  Roger gave Bobby and Meg the fun-filled wedding they were hoping for.  All of the officiants that work for Great Officiants know that every wedding they do needs to be fun and romantic.  That’s their brand !  And this had all that and more.  It was a perfect wedding.

Congratulations to Maira Barajas & Salbador Morales on their Baby Shower turned Surprise Wedding at their home in San Bernardino, CA on Saturday, May 27, 2017

Congratulations to Maira Barajas & Salbador Morales on their Baby Shower turned Surprise Wedding at their home in San Bernardino, CA on Saturday, May 27, 2017.  It started off as a Baby Shower at around 4pm with guests doing what they do at a baby shower.  When I arrive arrived 6:30, I mingled for a few minutes then asked for everyone’s attention, and with the groom at my side, welcomed everyone to what was now a wedding ceremony.  After everyone stopped applauding and crying, the music started and Maira entered from the house with her escorts and we began the traditional ceremony.  Guests remained standing, taking pictures throughout — a little less formal than usual.  At the conclusion, the newlyweds continued mingling with their guests and the party continued!

This Couple Wanted To Have Fun !!

Roger had the pure pleasure of officiating the wedding of Joey and Monique this last weekend.  Both Joey and Monique, when meeting with Roger, mentioned numerous times that that didn’t want the normal, dry, standard wedding.  They said that both their families and friends were ready to have a good time and really celebrate this big day.  Roger assured them that they came to the right guy.  Roger brought his A-game and had this crowd in stitches and in tears.  It was an amazing wedding!!!  And Sandy, the coordinator for the incredible Vintage Rose in the city of Orange, kept everybody in line and on time.  She is an amazing coordinator and does a wonderful job !  Overall, this couple had a fun wedding !!

This couple has love overflowing from their hearts, minds, eyes and souls… It is a love that you could feel from miles away. It was a beautiful hot sunny day in to Old Town Temecula and all their guests were dressed so beautifully.  This was such an intimate wedding that made everyone smile and laugh.  This couple wrote their own vows and they were so heartfelt, poetic and awesome.  This was a great ceremony and I Rev.

Jennifer and Jonathan’s wedding on 20 May 2017 was held at the Spanish Hills Country Club in Camarillo, California. The venue had a classic Spanish California colonial feel and is set in a lush green park-like setting bejeweled with classic Spanish architecture. The fountains and gardens are manicured and offer an elegant, yet relaxed feeling.

An Amazing View And An Amazing wedding

Orange Hill Restaurant is an extraordinary place.  It overlooks the city of Orange and its adjacent cities with a view for miles.  It is the perfect place for an afternoon or sunset dinner.  It also happens to be the place that Aaron & Margo decided to tie the knot at.  Roger was lucky enough to be there officiating their wedding this last Sunday.  It was a beautiful day and a very emotional day. Everyone cried and laughed.  It was the perfect day !!

An & Gene had a very elegant Wedding Ceremony at the, always gorgeous, Calimigos Ranch in Malibu, CA. The venue is amazingly picturesque & a perfect place to have an outdoor Event. What a very sweet couple that took the time to create their own vows. This always makes a Ceremony very personal & meaningful! They are headed to Tokyo for their honeymoon & even invited me to go along (just kidding😜)!
