An Awesome Couple at the Hotel Maya by Suvin

The Hotel Maya is such a great venue. Beautiful scenery, great views, and of course, this happy couple. They had an intimate ceremony surrounded by their family and friends. They had some wonderful decorations, and a nice sign in table with some candles and their picture. We had a non-denominational ceremony with a few words from them at the end. It is always a nice touch when the couple adds a few words in. It does not have the formality or the stress of writing out your own vows, but it still customizes the ceremony.

And they lived happily ever after.

Cindy & Chris wedding on 27 May 2017

Cindy and Chris chose to have their wedding at the Hotel Maya in Long Beach. This is a beautiful venue with views of the harbor, the downtown skyline and the bow & side profile of
the RMS Queen Mary. They chose a wonderful Latin band, which provided beautiful music during the ceremony and a wonderful salsa feel to the cocktail hour after the ceremony.

A beautiful start to a happy life together, in the company of friends, soft ocean breezes and a relaxed yet elegant setting.

A Grand Time at the Grand

Woody recently had the privilege of officiating the wedding of My and David at The Grand in Long Beach. (http://thegrandlb.com) Woody’s ceremony included a Hand Blessing as well as one of Woody’s famous Epic Love Stories. David and My remarked that they want to get married a second time, (to each other), just to relive the ceremony. Needless to say…..a GRAND time was had by all!!

Sittin’ on the Dock of the Bay

 

Jaden and Quesia are starting out on a fresh, brand new adventure together as newlyweds as they were wed at the Reef in Long Beach with a beautiful view of the Bay. Even though they are in their early 20’s, they knew they wanted each other and no one else to grow old with. There was many advice from their parents and relatives to wait and make sure, but anyone watching had no doubt they were sure. Jaden told me before the ceremony to just make sure everything was right for his bride, that’s all he cared about. So he’s already ahead of the game. His mother also commented after the wedding, “I am losing my son, the apple of my eye! But he couldn’t have chosen anyone better than Quesia”.

Roger had the honor of marrying Andrew & Janet on the water at the amazing Gondola Getaways in Long Beach

Roger had the honor of marrying Andrew & Janet this last weekend at a wedding venue that was a bit different than your regular wedding venue………. On the water !!  And when Roger says on the water, he truly means it !  It was at the amazing Gondola Getaways in Long Beach.  Truly an amazing, romantic ride in the Long Beach harbor for any occasion but this was extra special because Andrew and Janet were getting married on the Gondola !  And it was actually two gondolas !  They had charted the two largest gondolas, the Carolinas that held a dozen or so people each.  So after a short boat ride thru the harbor, our oarsmen found the perfect place to conduct the ceremony and it was game on !  While the two boats floated side by side; one boat for Roger, the bride and groom and the bridal party and the other boat for guests, Roger and Andrew & Janet stood and Roger married them !  It was incredibly romantic, fun and mother nature came thru with warm weather and blue skies !  It truly was the Love Boat !

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!

Roger had the honor of marrying Greg & Shana this last weekend at the always wonderful wedding venue, The Reef in Long Beach

rogergregandshana
Roger had the honor of marrying Greg & Shana this last weekend at the always wonderful wedding venue, The Reef in Long Beach.  Greg & Shana had planned everything out perfectly, a great wedding venue, getting married at sunset, a full bridal party, ring bearer and a flower girl….everything !  In fact, the ring bearer and flower girl would be his kids who would participate in the wedding.  Well, the day of the wedding, everything was moving along smoothly, as everyone got ready for the big moment.  Just prior to starting, Greg the groom comes up to Roger and tells him that his kids would rather not participate (stage fright) !!!   But Greg and Roger also knew that Shana the bride REALLY wanted to walk down upon the red rose petals they had worked so hard to prepare….  So what does an officiant do in a case like this, he gets creative….  Roger walks up to the three groomsmen and makes them an offer they cant refuse…. You see, the groomsmen were not walking out with the bridesmaids but with just the three of themselves…. so they took on double duty and became the “flower girl groomsmen” !!  It was perfect !  And now these three groomsmen can check that off their bucket list !!
