Rev. Ralph was delighted to perform the wedding ceremony for Clare & Josh at the Portofino Hotel in Redondo Beach.  The date, April 21, 2017, was clear and beautiful, the location was picturesque, the guests were in a festive mood, and the bride and groom were composed and confident!  Assisting very professionally were guitarist/singer Wise (wise100doors@gmail.com) and coordinator Ida Gardner (ida@idagardnerevents.com).  All in all, a perfect day!

Rev. Ralph married Justin & Julia at the Roessler Point Gazebo

There were only four of us there, but it was a joyous occasion as I (Rev. Ralph) married Justin & Julia in the presence of God and photographer McKenzie Smith (mckenziesmithphotography.com) at the Roessler Point Gazebo, Malaga Cove, in beautiful Palos Verdes.  It rained the day before and the day after, but was clear and calm for the quiet ceremony by the sea.

Claudia & Scott celebrated their marriage at a lovely setting by the seashore, at the Point Vicente Interpretive Center in Palos Verdes.  Arriving early, Rev. Ralph stopped to enjoy the setting, and greet some of the arriving guests.  The couple’s 2-year-old daughter Lola was the flower girl.  As the ceremony began, Rev. Ralph asked Lola if she would promise to help make the family a happy and healthy one, and Lola responded by bursting into tears!  We think that meant “yes.”  After the ceremony, Claudia & Scott posed with Rev. Ralph and it was “all smiles” after that!

It was a beautiful summer evening in the semi-rural Riverside County town of Mira Loma, as Rev. Ralph presided over the nuptials of Diana and Frank in the backyard of their lovely home.  Music from a solo violin set the mood, and about 75 friends and family members rejoiced as they repeated their vows under the setting sun.

Kim, Michael & Me
A beautiful, breezy afternoon at The Victorian in Santa Monica was the setting for the boisterously happy wedding ceremony of Kim and Michael, presided over by Rev. Ralph.  The mood, fueled no doubt by the natural energy of joy and excitement, plus the influence of plenty of champagne, was bubbly and festive.

Rev. Ralph enjoyed a lovely day and a wonderful group of family and friends as he presided over the nuptials of Leslie & William, on the bridge over the koi pond at the beautiful Earl Burns Miller Japanese Garden at Cal State Long Beach on Saturday afternoon, June 25.

The garden is a somewhat unusual setting, in that the guests are seated in several small areas around the garden some distance from the ceremony itself.  An excellent P.A. system made up for the enlarged space, and a joyful experience was had by all.

The next day, Leslie and William wrote a very nice note:

Dear Rev. Ralph, Thank you so much for officiating our wedding. Your warm demeanor and flexibility made us so comfortable! We are grateful to have had you be a part of our special day.
