From Beverly Hills to Long Beach, Octavio performs two great ceremonies

o1

Celeste & Alonso's wedding took place at a Beverly Hills home. The joy and love between them was so contagious!
Their families and close friends gathered around us in the home's yard making it a more intimate ceremony, which was exactly what the couple desired.
We did a bilingual non-denominational ceremony so that everyone could be a part of it. It came out beautifully!
Celeste & Gonzalo, I wish you all the blessings in the World!!!!

Viridiana & Alonso's wedding took place at Skylinks Golf Course in Long Beach. This ceremony was such a blast!!!!

They are clearly best friends and have such a unique and extraordinary connection. They wanted me to make a few jokes throughout the ceremony so that it wouldn't be too serious. We worked together in accomplishing this and the jokes they came up with were hilarious!

We added a joke in the opening of the ceremony and then a huge twist in their "I Do's" which made everyone laugh out loud!

Then we got to the ring exchange. When I called for the rings, the Best Man couldn't find them. Everybody started panicking and, oh oh, wait a minute what's that sound? R2D2 starts strolling around the wedding guests with non other than the pillow and rings. Yes you read it right, the real R2D2 came and saved the day!!! He came to the front and the Best Man took the rings from him. This was such an awesome moment!!!! And a first for me.

We then proceeded with the sand ceremony and after I pronounced them Husband & Wife they all got in golf carts and went for a ride around the golf course.

Alonso & Viridiana knocked it out of the park with their creativity and jokes!!!! I loved loved loved officiating their wedding!!!!!

Alonso & Viridiana, thank you for giving me the honor of officiating your wedding! I wish you guys all the blessings in the world!!!!!

An Emotional Wedding…..

er1

Roger had a wonderful wedding last weekend for an adorable couple Jesse & Annie. They had been planning the entire wedding themselves and by the time the wedding day came around, they were pretty stressed. So Roger suggested prior to the ceremony for Jesse & Annie to reflect on the big picture of that day. That they would be officially married and anything else that day didn’t matter. That seemed to help along with scattered humor during the ceremony. At the end of the day there were lots of laughs and tears of happiness.

 

Here is the review they posted

Annie said… 

This newlywed is sending a special thank you for Great Officiant for sending us Roger Lundblade to unite our love as one. Alan, head of Great Officiant wasted no time in contacting me to give us an officiant that we can relate to. Roger Lundblade, our offiicinat wed us on April 17, 2005. We were looking for someone who was professional, kind, and funny. Roger was all of the above and more. It did not bother him one bit when I emailed him 5 times because this bride had so many questions. My husband and I could not have ask for a better person to combine our love together. Roger Lundblade, you truly made this couple in love on that day even more. Thank you!

UP…………….

When Roger first met Constant & Jennifer, they asked him to design their wedding ceremony around the romantic love story animated movie “UP”. Roger, knowing that they were going to marry in the backyard of their home, suggested to recreate the iconic picture of balloons attached to the roof of their home and that is what they did! The ceremony was filled with wonderful references and moments from the movie and the wedding was a great success!!

A Wedding Ceremony at a Private Home in Palos Verdes, Overlooking the Ocean

Rev. Ralph led the festivities on a gorgeous afternoon in the back yard of an opulent home in Palos Verdes, as Denise and Ryan were joined in Holy Matrimony before a small group of family and friends. The beautiful back yard, which overlooks the ocean, was the setting. The couple's two dogs joined the processional as the guests applauded and laughed.

Double congratulations are in order for Tricia Burch & Michael Bryden on their October 18, 2014 Baby Shower turned “surprise” wedding in Placentia, CA.  Guests attended Tricia’s baby shower, only to be shown a video halfway through the shower, inviting them to the patio area to witness their unannounced wedding ceremony.  The short but meaningful outdoor ceremony followed as soon as the guests caught their breath!

Tricia & Michael B. - 10.18.14
