Edwin and Patricia were married at the Westminster Manor in Westminster by Roger

rogeredwinpatricia
Roger had the great honor of marrying Edwin & Patricia this last weekend at the historical Westminster Manor.  From the very first time Patricia reached out to Roger, she had told him that she “just knew” that Roger would be the person to give them their perfect wedding.  And that is exactly what Roger wanted to give them.  He took plenty of notes and carefully crafted the perfect ceremony for a couple that truly deserved it !!

Here’s what Patricia sent to Roger after their wedding.

“Hi Roger,

There isn’t a word that can best describe how wonderful you are.  For some reason, I felt you were the one, my heart just told me or maybe my mom had a hand in it. Together, we worked out the date so that you would be the one performing our ceremony.  You even offered to have someone else step in but we figured it out and I am so glad we did. You had everyone going through all the emotions… laughing, crying and falling in love.  From the bottom of our heart, Ed and I thank you for giving us such a wonderful ceremony.

Thank you so much!

Patricia and Edwin.”

And here’s what Patricia sent to Alan Katz, owner of Great Officiants.

“Hi Alan,

I was married this past Saturday and the ceremony was performed by Roger. After reading Rogers profile, I felt he was a perfect fit.  Ed and I met Roger before our ceremony to go over details and fun facts.  We left our meeting feeling even more sure that we had made the right decision.
The Ceremony Roger performed was so much more that I could have ever asked or dream about.   Roger had the whole room laughing, crying, and falling in love all over again.  Words can’t properly express just how great Roger was at performing my ceremony.  I am fortunate to have to have found your website and feel so blessed to have had Roger performing our ceremony.  Roger definitely made my wedding ceremony a memorable one.

Thank you so much!

Patricia. “

Rev. Ralph enjoyed a lovely day and a wonderful group of family and friends as he presided over the nuptials of Leslie & William

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.

Rev. Ralph had a Wonderful Wedding Weekend, marrying two delightful couples!

June 11 & 12, 2016
Rev. Ralph had a Wonderful Wedding Weekend, marrying two delightful couples!  On Saturday (6/11) Nicole & Eduardo, who both teach at the same junior high school, tied the nuptial knot at the Knollwood Country Club in Granada Hills, with a delightful Disney theme!  Then on Sunday, Sarah & Brian said their own personal vows to an intimate group of family and friends at the beautiful Descanso Gardens in La Cañada Flintridge.

Nicole & Eduardo wrote a lovely note:  “[We] want you to thank you for being a part of our day. We received several comments about how much our guests enjoyed our wedding ceremony. What we loved the most was that you made it a ceremony with meaning for us. We have clung to being still and knowing that He is God and the way you spoke about that verse was very touching to us. You are a kind man and we appreciate your compassion and care towards us.”

A Loving Couple and their beloved dog Rango……….

rogermikeangelica1
Roger had the honor of marrying Mike and Angelica this last weekend.  During the planning session for their wedding ceremony, they mentioned their dog Rango who is a MAJOR part of their life together.  Roger asked them if Rango was attending the wedding and they had considered it but had not done anything about it…… Well, Roger being a giant dog love, said they had to have him there, he was family !!  So they got permission from the venue, the beautiful Malibu West Beach Club and Rango became the official ring bearer !  So all was going along smoothly……. everybody had made their way down the aisle (including Rango – “Good boy”!)…….. the ceremony was running along with lots of heart felt moments, lots of laughter… until the exchanging of the rings… which were tied to Rango’s collar…..  Not a problem, but fearing that somehow the rings might come untied, they triple tied them to make sure they were not coming off…..and that is exactly what happened !! Everything came to a sudden stop in the ceremony while the best man, (Mike’s identical twin brother) wrangled with the multiple knots trying to get the rings.  All the while, the star of the wedding, Rango, sat there patiently while they retrieved the rings !  Rango was the star of the day !

Mike and Angelica were so happy that they wrote to Roger the very next day !!

Roger, 

First of all, thank you so much for the wonderful ceremony!!   People kept asking us where we found you, and we’re so glad we did. It was exactly what we were looking for. 

We never got the opportunity to thank you, however. We would really like to make that a priority, so please let us know what would be the best way to do that. And we’d be so happy to give you an amazing review!

Thank you SO much again. You made this such a memorable day for us! It was perfect.

Angelica and Mike

Dr. Who wedding. An adventure across time and space at Disney Fairytale Weddings.   

When I talked to Robert and Cassie about their ceremony they had no idea what they wanted to do. I gave them some ideas and then when I asked them what are they Geeky on and they told me they were huge Doctor Who fans. I am the KING of themed weddings so I prepared the following.

I’m a Time Lord. I’m from the planet Gallifrey in the Constellation of Kasterborous. I’m 903 years old, and I’m the man who’s gonna join this couple in Marriage”

If there is anyone who has just cause or any crazy darleks there is the exit…..

You wanna get married?? Cause if you do, then I should warn you. You’re gonna see all sorts of things – ghosts from the past, aliens from the future It won’t be quiet, it won’t be safe and it won’t be calm. But I tell you what it will be: the trip of a lifetime.”

When you’re a kid, they tell you it’s all… grow up. Get a job. Get married. Get a house. Have a kid, and that’s it. But the truth is, the world is so much stranger than that. It’s so much darker. And so much madder. And so much better.

Then my altered standard vows.

For the I do’s i used the following: So if life comes along with, it’s silly little hardships and its silly little problems, and it has plans to get in our way- do you vow this day to stand with HIM/HER always…I do

Through All of Time and Space

“There’s a lot of things you need to get across this universe. Warp drive… wormhole refractors… You know the thing you need most of all? You need a hand to hold.” “I’ll be a story in your head. That’s okay. We’re all stories in the end. Just make it a good one, eh? ”

You know, it seems to me there’s so much more to the world than the average eye’s allowed to see. I believe, if you look hard, there are more wonders in this universe than you could ever have dreamed of.”

At the End

I said…not even an angry Darlek could hold them apart. Now by the power vested in me by the high council of Gallifrey I pronounce you H&W FRONTIERLAND Together you get to explore new frontiers. Trying new places to go, new friends to meat may these new frontiers show to a way to your future,
Here is their nice comments after the ceremony

A Perfect Wedding

rogerkarelandlisa
Roger had the honor of marrying Karel & Lisa this last weekend at the one of a kind, amazing, art deco Oviatt Penthouse in downtown Los Angeles.  This amazing venue is not only historic but absolutely beautiful as a wedding venue.  Roger has officiated there many times and it still takes his breath away…..  And speaking of taking breath away, this wedding Roger had one very nervous groom on his hands.  So not only did Roger keep him calm, but officiated a perfect wedding and kept him happy to boot !

Roger we want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for being a big part of our wedding. It was absolutely beautiful and hilarious what you wrote. We couldn’t of asked for a better officiant and ceremony. We hope to see you soon at one of your shows. Take care and God bless.
With love,


Lisa and Karel

One of Roger’s Top Five Weddings !!

rogerjerrykim1
When you have a fun loving couple that wants a great love story written for their wedding, a fantastic wedding coordinator (with Sweet Events By Anh) and 200 plus guests that are there to have fun at the Venue by Three Petals, watch out !  Roger pulled out all the stops for this wonderful couple and it turned out to be one of Roger’s top five weddings….  Here’s what Kim had to say.

Hi Roger,

Thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts for the best, hilarious and memorable ceremony!!!  Beyond perfect and above all expectations. You killed it!

Jerry’s reaction to you saying Sierra is here was PRICELESS! 

All of our guests were laughing, crying, and coming up to us afterwards saying we had the best officiant. Even Jerry said he can do this wedding thing all over again as it really was our best day ever! 

Million thanks!

XOXO,
Kim & Jerry
