Roger was very excited to be marrying Daniel & Liz that last weekend. They had been at a few of his previous weddings and knew that they wanted him for their wedding. And what made this doubly special is that the wedding was being held at the Beverly Garland in Studio City just a couple miles from Roger’s house and the Beverly Garland is also a regular haunt for Roger and his family having had Thanksgiving dinners there on more than one occasion.
The only possible issue is that Daniel and Liz wanted streamers thrown by the guests as they walked down the aisle as husband & wife. The problem was that the venue doesn’t allow streamers !! And Roger only found this out as he was just walking up the aisle to perform the ceremony whispered to him by the wedding coordinator….. So at the end of the amazing ceremony, Roger made the announcement about the streamers but also everyone needed to pick up after themselves after the wedding……….Well that didn’t happen……… except for one groomsman………and Roger !!! It didn’t take long for the two of them to clean up and the groomsman was taken aback that the minister of the wedding was cleaning up too !! Roger…… A Great Officiant and Groundskeeper !!!
Roger has never officiated at the Anaheim Hills Golf Course but certainly looking forward to going there again. The grounds are beautiful and perfect for that intimate wedding! Roger was marrying Chris & Rachael, a fun loving couple who wanted not only a funny wedding but a hip one too. And Roger had his work cut out for him. He had to follow the flower girl, their one year old daughter Rayelynn who was “driving” the most tricked out Mercedes he has ever seen!! The crowd went crazy when she “drove” (via remote control) down the aisle. And Roger topped off this fantastic start with a very fun and funny wedding!
Wesley had the privilege of marrying Michael and Katy at the seaside Laguna Cliffs Marriott in Dana Point. Fate had its’ hand in their relationship from the beginning, all the way to the absolute perfect weather that day. When Katy and Michael were trying to set up their first date, they both had crazy busy schedules. The only day that was open for either of them was Valentine’s Day. Michael quickly learned of Katy’s love for musical theatre, and thankfully Michael likes to sing as much as Katy, so they make the perfect duet.

Megan Cai and Kevin Courtney, with friends and family cheering, recited their marriage vows at the Huntington Beach Hilton overlooking the great Pacific Ocean. In their long courtship, Kevin and Megan traveled across that ocean to her homeland of China ten times! With homes both in Irvine and Hawaii, of course, the trip to Asia is cut into two manageable halves, and the happy couple plan to keep flying around the globe to exotic locations. The weather was perfect for the ceremony, the harpist played beautifully, and Rev Gary Barmore of Great Officiants, according the the bride and groom, offered just the right words and feelings for the auspicious occasion.
This was a very quaint, intimate setting with just the right number of people in attendance. The couple was a fun loving couple and their ceremony was a fun and heartfelt display of warmth and love from the bridal party and the guests.
Their colors of blue and white highlighted the venue and made the smiles of the bride and groom come alive.
Ashley and Philip chose the Rustic and quietly tucked away Temecula Creek Inn as the destination for their romantic wedding. Once guests arrived, they were taken in a shuttle to an even quieter and remote location, beautifully decorated and tranquil so their guests could truly enjoy themselves.
The ceremony was unplugged, so Wesley informed the guests to keep their phones put away and be present with Ashley and Philip as they were wed. Their genuine spark of love for each other was felt throughout the entire ceremony and on into the evening.
If most of the guests are traveling from China, then there’s no need for a weekend wedding. So Wanbing Zhao and Liwei Deng engaged the fabulous Pelican Hill Resort as the venue for their wedding on Tuesday June 11. Through Great Officiants of Long Beach they secured the ministerial services of Rev. Dr. Gary Barmore, who assured this bilingual couple that even the guests that spoke no English would clearly get the gist of the ceremony. After Dr Barmore asked the question of promise, both groom and bride responded “I Do” — followed by personal statements of loving commitment to each other in Mandarin. Wedding planner Tammy Su and her staff facilitated every aspect of this beautiful celebration of family tradition and abiding love.
