Ranch wedding

The Perfect Wedding and Wedding Venue

Calamigos Ranch is a one of a kind wedding venue.  Not only is its location buried amongst the trees in Malibu, but it has many different settings on its grounds to have that perfect wedding. And Roger’s favorite is the Oak Room.  With that stunning waterfall as the backdrop, it lends itself to creating that perfect memory for the perfect wedding.  Now the only thing that Bobby & Meg, Roger’s wedding couple this last weekend, needed was the perfect ceremony to go with that perfect location.  And this is where Roger steps in.  Roger gave Bobby and Meg the fun-filled wedding they were hoping for.  All of the officiants that work for Great Officiants know that every wedding they do needs to be fun and romantic.  That’s their brand !  And this had all that and more.  It was a perfect wedding.

What a very sweet couple that took the time to create their own vows. This always makes a Ceremony very personal & meaningful! They are headed to Tokyo for their honeymoon & even invited me to go along (just kidding😜)!

Calamigos Ranch in Malibu is my favorite venue in all of Southern California. The fairy tale “Enchanted Forrest” vibe made me fall in love with it the very first time I step foot there. I’ve only done three weddings here and wish I could do many more. It feels like home to me and if I ever get married it’s definitely going to be there!

Christian and Alejandra are such an amazing couple! Easy-going, relax, roll with the punches, “we’ll do whatever you think is better” type attitude made my experience delightful and unforgettable. To an extent where I didn’t want the ceremony to be over. They are the kind of couple that will stay in my heart forever!!!

God bless them!!!

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 !

Calamigos’s Ranch was the perfect venue for Golan and Tannia

Calamigos’s Ranch was the perfect venue for Golan and Tannia

After meeting the couple at the venue during one of the many shows Great Officiants attend, I was fortunate enough to meet them there.  When I asked who was doing performing their wedding, the said that they were looking for a rabbi who would be willing to marry an interfaith couple.  It wasn’t too difficult for us to bond within minutes.

The fun thing about their wedding was a friend of theirs was asked to speak the Spanish parts of the prayers and other important elements.  I was able to send him the English and we had a trilingual ceremony.

Being that Tannia was from Mexico and Golan, from Israel, you would think it was difficult to see the two families meld into one.

Here is a neat preview video right before the ceremony:

Congratulations to Siuna Morales & Neevon Esmaili on their November 19, 2016 wedding at the Oak Room at Calamigos Ranch in Malibu, CA

Congratulations to Siuna Morales & Neevon Esmaili on their November 19, 2016 wedding at the Oak Room at Calamigos Ranch in Malibu, CA.  It was a perfect day for a wedding in Malibu and the timing was just around sunset outdoors in front of a beautiful rock waterfall.  It was a traditional ceremony to which they added the “Love Lock Tree.”  Love Lock are a symbol of love and commitment which have been inspired by an ancient custom.  The custom was started in Europe in the early 2000’s where love padlocks were affixed to a fence, gate or bridge to symbolize a couples everlasting love.  In this ceremony, the locks are affixed to a metal Love Lock Tree.  Their parents also affixed their locks in support of the couples intent to marry.  It added a nice dimension to the ceremony!
