Library wedding

The Beautiful Wedding………

Roger had the honor of marrying Mark & Taylor this last weekend at the most extraordinary Redondo Beach Historic Library and Community Center.  It was a beautiful wedding with a fun filled crowd and Roger really pulled out the stops on this one.  Lot’s of laughs and lots of tears.

It was a wonderful wedding…. So much that Mark & Taylor took time out or their celebration to send this note below.

Roger,

Just wanted to say, thank you thank you thank you! You knocked it out of the park with our ceremony.  It was thoughtful, hilarious, and sweet.  We loved it and our guests were absolutely blown away by how funny it was.  It exceeded our expectations and we are so grateful to you for really taking the time to understand what we wanted, and delivering it!!

Sincerely,

Taylor and Mark

Congratulations to Natalie Rajasinghe & David Richards on their February 19, 2017 wedding at the Richard Nixon Presidential Library in Yorba Linda, CA

Congratulations to Natalie Rajasinghe & David Richards on their February 19, 2017 wedding at the Richard Nixon Presidential Library in Yorba Linda, CA.  Well, the weather sure had everyone guessing these past few days — Is the ceremony outside?  Do we setup inside?  Do we build an arc?  The coordinator Jenna decided not to build the arc but to prepare for an indoor ceremony if needed and we both agreed to allow for a possible late start.  But, no rain fell on Natalie and David’s happiest day of their lives or their 220+ guests.  AND, the ceremony started at the designated start time, precisely!  Their personal vows were heartfelt and very touching and the readings by Michael and Brian were inspirational.  David got through the roller coaster ride and Natalie agreed to eat all her food (had to be there to understand)!  After the ceremony, MANY family photos were taken.  My very best to Natalie and David for a great life together!

Beautiful Outdoor, Seaside Ceremony at Redondo Beach Historic Library

The beautiful seaside view from the Redondo Beach Historic Library was the setting for the nuptials of Mary & Matthew. The wedding, which had been planned for indoors, had to be moved outside due to a larger than expected crowd, and the unity candle ceremony was replaced with a sand blending ceremony! A lovely, if cool and windy time was had by all!

A Sweeping Ocean View Wedding with Rev. Frank Meola

Congratulations to Kate Vineyard & K.C. Busmann on their August 1, 2014 wedding at the Redondo Beach Historic Library in Redondo Beach, CA.  The ceremony couldn’t have been better!  The weather cooled down to the low 70’s, sun hidden and a slight breeze.  The sing-A-long interlude after the ring exchange got guests standing and singing and dancing in place, with a great big smile on their faces!

Kate & K.C. B. - 08.01.14

Roger Marries Bibliophiles at the Library!

Roger-Lib2

Roger officiated an amazing wedding this last weekend at of all places, the L.A. Central Library!  Built in 1926, this venue is one of the largest libraries in the world.  Both the Meg and Jeroen are prolific readers and love this place. They couldn’t think of a better location to get married than at the library.  It was wonderful and not once did Roger get shushed for talking loud!

The couples loved Roger so much, they even wrote the following message:

Roger – I can’t even begin to tell how amazing yesterday was and you were a HUGE part of that.  We would love to request a copy of the ceremony as we would like to translate it into Dutch for Jeroens parents and family.  If you have a moment to send it along, we would really appreciate it.  Thanks!

 

Check out the spacious ceremony area below!
