Roger’s get’s arrested at his wedding at Skylinks in Long Beach !!

Okay….he doesn’t, but with the groom a California Highway Patrol Officer and lot’s of his buddies also CHP’s, Roger took great delight in writing a very funny and special wedding ceremony based on this fact for the couple!! The crowd (and the groom and his buddies) loved it and Roger got two of his speeding tickets signed off ! (Okay, not really on the tickets….)

Laguna Beach’s Diver’s Cove is the setting for a sunset celebration of the re-birth of love!

Alain & Christel met 18 years ago in France, and took an instant disliking to each other.

So strong was this non-connection, that it took a tremendous shared loss a year and a half ago, to invite an opening in their hearts — to new possibilites — and to each other.

Alan Menken’s beautiful lyrics describe their transformation, perfectly:

“Tale as old as time

True as it can be

Barely even friends

Then somebody bends

Unexpectedly…

Tale as old as time

Tune as old as song

Bittersweet and strange

Finding you can change

Learning you were wrong…”

So last night’s intimate family gathering on the beach with Great Officiant Pris, created a mood of jubliation and loving community as these two took their vows, and solidified a sense of tribe with their four boys.

What a testament to the power of love to heal, surprise, and build bridges where none existed for nearly two decades!

..AND THEY ALL LIVED HAPPILY EVER AFTER

Disney Resorts’ enchanted Rose Garden in Anaheim was the magical setting for Jordan & Jessica’s Fairy Tale wedding Sunday afternoon, surrounded by their family and friends from all around the country.

Great Officiant Pris presided over their July 1st nuptials that not only solidified their family with children Harley & baby Jazlynn, but honored his brother and sister-in-law’s 1st wedding anniversary as well.

Radiant bride Jessica’s arrival in Cinderella’s glass coach was announced not only by the sound of the gorgeous white horse bedecked for this momentous occasion, but by a pint-sized sign bearer proudly proclaiming “Here Comes the Bride!”

Jordan & Jessica’s colorful, romantic ceremony featured a tender poem called “Love;” the revealing of their secret, personalized vows to one another; a dashing footman who brought their wedding rings down the aisle in the glass slipper; and the Blending of the Sands with their children.

Add to this, angelic sounds of classic Disney musical themes performed by a live harpist; our bride kissed not only by her beloved groom, but by splashes of beautiful rainbows; and the roses in full bloom…

Well, it just doesn’t get any better than this! Magic is alive and well in the land!

…and they all lived happily ever after.
