Roger Rocks Three Ceremonies: one at the Taglyan Complex in Los Angeles, one at the Quiet Cannon in Montebello, and one at Castaways in Burbank

Image

As we all know, Southern California has been testing our comfort limits with the recent heat waves.  And this last weekend really was a doozy.  Roger had the honor of marrying Henry & Kat this last weekend at the incredible Taglyan Complex in Los Angeles.  This is one of the most amazing wedding venues, top shelf staff, beautiful lighting, everything……..except a way to keep an outside wedding cool !  The poor groom Henry was not only nervous but doing an awful lot of perspiring………. But he was a trooper because he was marrying the love of his life !

Roger was honored to be part of this wonderful, romantic wedding this last Saturday for Kendrick & Lauren.  It was held at the always amazing Quiet Cannon in Montebello.  Now Kendrick & Lauren are a fun loving couple and the groom Kendrick is big time into comics, movies and especially Star Wars !  So Roger delivered!!  Is was both fun and romantic and Roger, who has learned from the best, his boss Alan Katz, added in some pizazz theme commentary for the groom !  It was a wedding too remember, even for the imperial storm troopers !!

Roger officiated a wonderful wedding this last weekend at Castaways in Burbank.  Now even though Castaways is closed for renovations, they still had their hands full with three weddings all happening at the same time.  But Castaways always has their act together and everything went smooth for all three weddings !  And as for the wedding couple, Joshua & Kysstina, they are in incredibly loving couple who really wanted their guests to have as much fun as they were planning to have.  So they asked Roger to pull out all the stops….and Roger did indeed !  It was a perfect wedding except for one very little, tiny if you will, problem……One enterprising gnat that would not leave Roger or Joshua alone !  All during Roger’s reading, this gnat, was constantly buzzing Roger’s ear and Roger really had to concentrate and not show his displeasure with this uninvited guest…And once Joshua started reading his own vows, the gnat actually then went over too Joshua and gave him the buzzing treatment too !  Joshua had to swat him away just to get thru his moving speech.  Other than that, the wedding was perfect !

Doctor Who References at the Vintage Rose in Orange Wedding Ceremony

Image

Elisha and Wesley were big Doctor Who Fans and wanted to incorporate Dr. Who quotes throughout the ceremony.

So here are the quotes I used and where I put them into the wedding ceremony

In the Opening

When you’re a kid, they tell you it’s all… Grow up, get a job, get married, get a house, have a kid, and that’s it. But the truth is, the world is so much stranger than that. It’s so much darker. And so much madder. And so much better.

Before the Vows

Some people live more in 20 years than others do in 80. It’s not the time that matters, it’s the person.

Before the Ido’s

The universe is big. It’s vast and complicated and ridiculous. And sometimes, very rarely, impossible things just happen and we call them miracles.”

Before the Rings

“There’s a lot of things you need to get across this universe. Warp drive… wormhole refractors… You know the thing you need most of all? You need a hand to hold.”

Before the Kiss

We’re all stories, in the end. Just make it a good one, eh?

Don’t turn your back. Don’t look away. And don’t blink. Good Luck

 

Ceremony written and performed by famous Wedding Officiant Alan Katz

This Couple Wanted To Have Fun !!

Image

Roger had the pure pleasure of officiating the wedding of Joey and Monique this last weekend.  Both Joey and Monique, when meeting with Roger, mentioned numerous times that that didn’t want the normal, dry, standard wedding.  They said that both their families and friends were ready to have a good time and really celebrate this big day.  Roger assured them that they came to the right guy.  Roger brought his A-game and had this crowd in stitches and in tears.  It was an amazing wedding!!!  And Sandy, the coordinator for the incredible Vintage Rose in the city of Orange, kept everybody in line and on time.  She is an amazing coordinator and does a wonderful job !  Overall, this couple had a fun wedding !!

We did a beautiful ceremony in the gazebo at Quiet Cannon. Great venue!!!

Image

Ben and Martha  are truly soulmates!

I was more involved with them from the moment we met up until their ceremony than I normally am with other couples due to some family matters they went through and got to literally fall in love with them.

Like people say now-a-days #relationshipgoals !!!!!!

Congratulations to Kristie Beckman & Thomas Rinehart on their March 5, 2017 wedding at The Mitten Building in Redlands, CA

Congratulations to Kristie Beckman & Thomas Rinehart on their March 5, 2017 wedding at The Mitten Building in Redlands, CA.  The ceremony went exactly as planned with the “nervous ” groom managing to get through the ceremony in one piece!  He was breathing so heavy, we couldn’t keep the candles lit.  Kristie’s entrance was great as she entered right on queue with the Bagpipes.  They added the Sand Ceremony to the traditional ceremony for the perfect personal ceremony.  My best to the happy couple!

Congratulations to Daniella De La Cal & Robert Kelly on their November 12, 2016 wedding at The Ebell Club in Long Beach, CA.  Everything went great – it was a simple ceremony with the couple reciting touching personal vows.  The ceremony was filled with both humor and seriousness (which was sometimes difficult to achieve due to Daniella and Robert’s great personalities and sense of humor).  But we managed to make sure the ceremony had the required doses of seriousness where it needed to be!  My best to the happy couple, who I’m sure are a perfect match for each other!
