The Gorgeous Vistas of Roessler Point

Image

Janet Reveles and Luis Morales were married in a gazebo at Roessler Point with a gorgeous vista from the cliffs of Palos Verdes. ¬†Not only did Great Officiants recommend to them this venue, they also recommended the ministry of Rev. Dr. Gary Barmore to plan with them and preside at their wedding. ¬†The nuptials were scheduled for sunset at 7:30. ¬†When it was 7:15 about twenty guests were present, but one or two had not arrived. ¬†Then another wedding group of ten showed up and their officiant asked if they could enter the gazebo for a “7 minute ceremony.” ¬†Luis and Janet — gracious all the way — said to go ahead. ¬† Then at 7:28 Rev Gary and the groom and immediate family entered the gazebo to commence the wedding event for this lovely couple. ¬†The bride’s father escorted her in just after the red-tinged sun had dropped out of sight in the west. ¬†Knowing the disappointment that might be there, Rev Gary said, “Luis and Evelyn, the sun on your wedding day has just set, but sunrise tomorrow will proclaim the oneness of the rest of your life on which will shine the blessings of God.”

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¬†‚Äújust knew‚ÄĚ 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. “Share This Post:

Roger married Jon & Tanya this last Saturday down in Dana Point at the Blue Lantern Inn which is an amazing wedding venue.  It was just Jon, Tanya and a handful of guests.  It was held outside just before sunset with a small gathering, truly an intimate setting and Roger gave them a wonderful ceremony.  So much, the very next day he received a thank you note from the bride Tonya.

Roger I just wanted to thank you so much for an amazing ceremony yesterday! ¬†You did perfect!! ¬†We couldn’t be happier!!! ¬†So many people commented on how well you did. ¬†It had the perfect amount of seriousness and also humor. ¬†We loved it!!¬†

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.

A Perfect Day For A Wedding

Image

2newlandroger

The Newland Barn in beautiful Huntington Beach is always a special venue for weddings.  They take great care of their guests and the grounds are always beautiful.  And when you combine in a gorgeous day, you have it all !  And that’s what Dallen and Diana had this last Saturday.  It was like a perfect summer day!  And to top that off, they had the amazing wedding duo team of coordinator Kristen Black of Stop And Stare Events and her husband Dakota who was the DJ.  Combine this with Roger who gave a fantastic ceremony and you had a perfect wedding !

So much that the bride wrote Roger the very next day to share these kind words with him:

Best wedding ever!!! ¬†Thank you so much Roger. You were the biggest hit yesterday and we are so thankful for you! ¬†Thank you again so much for your amazing officiating ¬†ūüôā

A Very Unique Wedding !

Image

This one is one for the books !  Roger had the honor of marrying Andrew and Henry, together for 11 years who flew out from Boston to get married at Tom Of Finland, an erotic museum here in Los Angeles.  It was just a small group of friends attending  along with a fun, but casual ceremony.  And this was a first for Roger…… Instead of exchanging rings, they exchanged cigar bands !  It was a great time and one to remember !!

Andrew & Henry were very happy with the ceremony and said so below…..

Roger Dodger,
Thanks so much for officiating our ceremony yesterday.¬†You are a real sport and lots of fun on top of being a wonderful¬†officiant. ¬†Your ‚Äúsermon‚ÄĚ was the perfect balance of wisdom and humor¬†making a very serious event into something fun and full of life.
If you make it to Berlin in the coming year looks us up, otherwise  we’ll hunt you down when we get back to LA !

Mr & Mr Henry Richard Andrew Maniace Buzzi!”
