A Bride Forgets Her Vows In The Middle Of A Lemon Grove…………

Roger had the honor of marrying Albert & Victoria this last weekend at one of Roger’s favorite wedding venues.  Limoneira Ranch out in Santa Paula.  Not a lot of people know about this gem of a wedding venue out in the middle of agriculture country in Ventura County.  Not only is the wedding venue extraordinary but the venue is in the middle of a large scale working lemon grove !  And when Roger says in the middle, you are literally surrounded by lemon trees !  In fact, the venue invites wedding guests to wander into the grove and pick their limit of lemons !  And by now, all the rain cloud clouds had dissipated and it was a beautiful afternoon for a wedding.  And the wedding was going along perfectly…………up to the point where the bride & groom were to read their own vows to each other.  Just as Roger invited Albert the groom to read his vows, Roger noticed that the bride Victoria suddenly waved to the Maid Of Honor and whispered something……..well it didn’t take a genius to figure out that the bride forgot her vows !!  So the maid of honor excuses herself and signals to the coordinator Abby to help and off goes Abby running to find them.  Roger sees what is happening behind all the guests so he quickly on the spot adds more to the ceremony to give time for the vows to make their way up to Victoria without skipping a beat !  She reads her well planned vows and it goes off perfectly !  A beautiful wedding !

A Wedding Day Sign Like No Other………

Roger married Nicu & Marina this last Saturday morning at Point Dume.  It was to be a small, intimate, loving ceremony, maybe only 10 people attending.  The only worry for the day was the forecasted rain.  When Roger left his home that morning to head out for the wedding it was raining pretty hard.  He could only hope that Mother Nature had different plans that day other than to ruin a young couples wedding ceremony….   Because at Point Dume, you don’t really have any other back up plans to get out of the rain……. Roger got there extra early to see if he could formulate some kind of plan if indeed the black storm clouds overhead erupted into rain.  But as Roger was waiting for the couple and the wedding party to arrive, he noticed something…..  Blue skies !  He couldn’t believe it !  Mother Nature had come thru !  And once the wedding party arrived along with Nicu and Marina, Roger wasted no time rounding the group down on to the sand, better not to push their luck, not knowing how long the blue skies would last…….  And no sooner did the wedding party make their way down to the water than Mother Nature played it’s last card…….  Just as Roger was starting the ceremony, the entire wedding party started shouting……….just directly behind them, maybe 50 yards off shore……..were two Pacific Gray whales !  It’s migration season and these two love birds (whales) stopped and stayed for the wedding !  It was amazing !  All the while during the ceremony, these two whales kept rising out of the water to watch the proceedings !  It was like they were giving a sign that all was well with this wedding.  You could not ask for a better sign.

One, Crazy, Fun Filled Wedding

Roger had the honor of marrying Rick & Amanda this last weekend at Ole Hanson Beach Club in San Clemente.  This historic site of San Clemente has been there for 88 years and just a few years ago, received a total remake and is a perfect wedding venue overlooking the Pacific.  The wedding ceremony was held out on the grass because they had a large and loud wedding !  There were lots of people there and all of them were there to party !  Both Rick and Amanda had told Roger that this was not just a wedding but a party and that is what Roger gave them !  It was fun filled and touching to boot !!

A Homecoming Wedding………

Roger had the pleasure of marrying Mike & Michelle this last weekend at the gazebo at Roessler Point in Palos Verdes Estates.  If you have not had the pleasure of visiting this little gem overlooking the pacific, you are missing out.  It was a small gathering, maybe 20 people in all.  Our couple, Mike & Michelle flew out from Seattle to marry at the Gazebo because it was a homecoming for Mike.  You see, Mike grew up in the Palos Verdes area and has very fond memories of his childhood there.  So what better place to marry the woman of your dreams !!  So as Mike & Michelle pledged their vows to each other this last weekend, they overlooked the beautiful Pacific, but also Mike’s childhood…..  It was a great day.

Somewhere Over The Rainbow in Laguna beach………

Roger had the incredible honor of marrying Tommy & Taylor this last weekend down in the always amazing Laguna Beach.  And to top that off, it was at a place Roger had never been to before.  It’s called Seven Degrees and it’s is a one-of-a-kind wedding venue that is extraordinary.  And Morgan, the onsite wedding coordinator is fantastic.  So not only are Tommy & Taylor getting married at an incredibly romantic place and Roger officiating doing his magic, but this wedding had amazing thing happen in the middle of the ceremony.  It turns out that Taylor growing up was always enchanted by a family friend, Dr. Robert Blake who is an amazing trumpet player and she asked him to play during their ceremony.  So half way thru, Roger introduces Dr. Blake and he comes up to the front and plays Somewhere Over The Rainbow on the trumpet !!  There was not a dry eye in the house !  It was the perfect addition to a perfect ceremony and day !!  Thank you Laguna, thank you Dr. Blake.
