600 Wedding Guests And Only 100 Were Invited…….

Roger had the honor of marrying Ruben & Vanessa this last Saturday at the always amazing Ayres Hotel in Hawthorne.  This particular Ayres hotel has an amazing central courtyard with beautiful trees and wonderful acoustics for the ceremony.  The staff and venue coordinator are always spot on and always willing to go the extra mile to help out…..except there was nothing they could do this last Saturday to ask the extra 500 or so uninvited wedding guests to leave the ceremony….. Not that there was anything anyone could do………you see, a swarm of over 500 bees had decided about a hour before the ceremony, to make their new home right in the tree over the alter !!  The group decision was to still have the ceremony where it was at but not to make any quick movements…. and it worked out perfectly !  Not one person got stung or even bothered !  I guess Roger’s ceremony went over well with the bees too, not one of them complained.  And as you can imagine, it gave Roger some really great material for fun comments throughout the ceremony !!

Roger had the honor of marrying Ryan & Lindsey this last weekend at a oh-so-amazing Surf & Sand Resort in Laguna Beach

Roger had the honor of marrying Ryan & Lindsey this last weekend at a oh-so-amazing Surf & Sand Resort in Laguna Beach.  Not only is this wedding venue an extraordinary location right in the middle of Laguna Beach, but the entire staff is so accommodating and friendly.  Now this was not to be a large wedding because Ryan and Lindsey were flying in from out of town for the wedding.  So with maybe a handful of guests and the wonderful guitar music of John Scott Evans, Roger chose not to use the supplied microphone and really bring the intimacy in to the ceremony.  So just the music, Roger’s voice and the crashing of the waves were all the guests heard and it was fantastic.  Intimate and simplistic……..

Congratulations to Renee Yip & Ken Chen on their March 11, 2017 wedding at the Hilton Universal City in Universal City, CA

Congratulations to Renee Yip & Ken Chen on their March 11, 2017 wedding at the Hilton Universal City in Universal City, CA.  It was a beautiful day for a ceremony on the rooftop terrace overlooking the city.  The string quartet added an eloquent touch for an already “classy” ceremony.  The “Ave Maria” during the Rose Presentation to Renee and Ken’s moms was a great choice.  Planner Jackie Tan and her team did a great job putting everything together with perfection.  My best to the newlyweds!

Congratulations to Kathleen Rivera & Tommy Zecena on their October 15, 2016 wedding at the Avenue of The Arts Hotel in Costa Mesa, CA.  It was a beautiful October day in southern California with the perfect blend of weather and guests for a perfect wedding!  The ceremony started on time with the bride making the l o n g walk down the path from the opposite side of the lake to the ceremony site, slowly making her way to the aisle, for another journey to her waiting groom and officiant!  We quickly got into a meaningful ceremony with inspiring words and humor with a beautiful lake and fountain in the background.  My best to the happy couple as they begin their journey together!

Congratulations to Emily Burchett & Richard Egerton on their intimate August 25, 2016 wedding at the Laguna Cliffs Marriott Resort and Spa in Dana Point, CA.  It was a beautiful California day for this United Kingdom couple.  Most of their family and guests traveled a great distance to celebrate this special day with them, and the outcome was perfect in every way!  The look on Emily’s face and the sincere joy and gratitude the couple expressed was priceless, as is the memories they will take home with them to begin their beautiful life together.  I was so honored to be a part of their special day.  My very best to a very beautiful couple.

A quaint, romantic wedding at an amazing venue…….

rogerjontanya1
Roger married Jon & Tanya this last Saturday down in Dana Point at the Blue Lantern Inn which is an amazing wedding venue.  It was just Jon, Tanya and a handful of guests.  It was held outside just before sunset with a small gathering, truly an intimate setting and Roger gave them a wonderful ceremony.  So much, the very next day he received a thank you note from the bride Tonya.

Roger I just wanted to thank you so much for an amazing ceremony yesterday!  You did perfect!!  We couldn’t be happier!!!  So many people commented on how well you did.  It had the perfect amount of seriousness and also humor.  We loved it!! 

Thank you for being part of our special day. It means a lot that you made it perfect. From the bottom of my heart, thank you!!!

Tanya
