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

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 !

Roger officiated a very touching wedding at Castaways this last Saturday.  If was for Tim & Sarena, a really great couple.  Tim was not only marrying Sarena but also was adopting her children as well.  So Tim surprised them and did his own special vows just for the children.  There was not a dry eye in the house, including Roger.  A great wedding and a great family.

It took twenty years, but now they’re married!

Image Howard and Jennifer.
I had the pleasure of performing a wedding ceremony for a very nice couple named Howard Chu and Jennifer Ilagan this past weekend. The wedding took place at The Castaways in Burbank, on Friday evening, May 1st.

Howard and Jennifer have a very interesting storyline.  This couple started dating twenty years ago……..in high school. And although these high school sweethearts did not know it at the time, marriage was inevitably in their future. 

After graduating high school Howard and Jennifer went their separate ways. Both went off to college, and had very successful, although separate lives. As fate would have it however, they eventually reconnected with each other. And after twenty years of living apart……tied the knot on Friday night.

The couple had two adult children present, one of which walked Jennifer down the aisle and gave her hand in marriage to Howard. After the wedding ceremony the couple had a great reception for family and friends at The Castaways. 

Howard and Jennifer also made great choices in their selection of vendors. Great Officiants provided the ceremony. Nannette Ricaforte provided the Photography and Craig from Benton Entertainment provided the D.J. services. And of course, The Castaways provided a great meal and catering service.

All and all, it was a picture perfect wedding, on a picture perfect day, with a great human interest story to boot!

Here are some nice words they had to say:

"Rev. Michael Woods is a highly organized, and professional officiant. For us, juggling wedding planning while working full-time was not an easy task, Michael was able to quickly and efficiently help us organize and customize our vowels to be our own. He is very quick to respond to our questions and very pleasant to work with. Some of Michael's greatest assets are his stage presence, articulate voice, and calming demeanor infused with a sense of playful optimism. As I look back at the video of our ceremony Michael conducted, I get the sense that he really enjoys what he does while paying attention to minor details. I would highly recommend Rev. Michael Woods to my friends."

Congratulations Howard and Jennifer. A couple that time would not let stay apart.

Dr. Michael A. Woods
