Roger had the honor of marrying Andrew & Marie this last Sunday at the always wonderful Calamigos Ranch in Malibu. And it was at his favorite spot there, the Oaks Room ! This amazing location at the ranch overlooks an extraordinary waterfall and is the perfect place to marry the person of your dreams ! It was going to be a fun filled wedding and best of all, their love-of-their-life dog who they call Bear was going to be there to celebrate with them. Now Bear is a beautiful Golden Retriever and she was incredibly excited to be part of the action that day ! So much that at the exact moment Roger asked for the rings from the best man, Bear decided that she would jump up and help facilitate the handing of the rings to Roger !! Needless to say, standing next to a waterfall with rings being bounced around made for great fun !! But all turned out and the wedding went off without a hitch. And best of all, Bear stole the show !
Roger had the honor of marrying Matt & Jill this last weekend at the beautiful Piru Mansion in Fillmore. It was a perfect day, the weather was stunning, and Roger had a great time with the audience. They were a fun group all there to celebrate this adorable couple Matt & Jill.
Roger had the honor of marrying Sheldon & Christine at the ever so beautiful Portofino Hotel & Yacht Club in Redondo Beach this last weekend. It is a beautiful place to marry, overlooking the bay. And it is such a nice location, the local seals also find it very appealing. So Roger always tells his couples that they may hear a few squawks from the local seal residents during the ceremony. When Roger got there, the groom mentioned that it was surprisingly quiet from the seal community that day and that on their rehearsal day, they were in full swing! Roger told him that maybe they would get lucky ! Not so fast……. No sooner did the music start to play for the processional, so did the seals join in for their part of the song ! And they never stopped ! It was actually quite amusing watching Roger trying to dodge the sound effects of the “additional guests” ! But Roger, the trooper he was, gave a wonderful ceremony albeit a very noisy one !
The Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills is an amazing place to marry. It can hold hundred’s of guests for an over the top, giant wedding…….. But in Mario & Laura’s wedding, it was no more than 10 people. Just an Intimate, family ceremony. So why did they choose Greystone ? It was a place that Mario would take Laura when they first started dating and they wanted to marry where it all began. And Roger got to be part of this amazing event.
Roger was fortunate enough to be part of a picture perfect wedding this last weekend. He married Jaime & Kara, a wonderful couple truly in love. The wedding was held at the Eagles Nest Country Club in Cypress. The only concern was the weather forecast……. It was predicting triple digit heat and everyone was worried that this outdoor wedding was going to be ruined……. Well, it was either Roger’s wishing, or mother nature wanting to help, but the temperature at the venue was a comfortable level and everyone had a great time. Not too hot at all !!
If you had to pick the perfect place for a sunset wedding, the Laguna Beach Surf & Sand Hotel up on the terrace would be in the top ten…….That is where Roger had the pleasure of marrying Darryl and Alexandria this last weekend. And to top off this amazing wedding venue, Darryl & Alexandra told Roger that their guests were coming to party and Roger needed to bring the fun, funny and romance to their ceremony ! Boy did they come to the right guy ! Not only did Roger have the guests in stitches, but many, many heartfelt moments throughout the ceremony. It was a perfect wedding !
David and Liz’s wedding at the Muckenthaler Mansion in Fullerton was simply lovely. We scheduled a rehearsal ahead of time, which gave us the opportunity to run through the ceremony and ensure that Liz and David and their entire wedding party (quite a bunch!) knew exactly what to expect the next day. Working with their wedding coordinator Sara was great!
The Muckenthaler Mansion was really beautiful, especially with all of the flowers and wedding decor. There were different areas for wedding, appetizers and cocktails, and dinner and dancing.
I very much enjoyed getting to know this sweet couple and hearing about their relationship and what brought them to this point. I was also glad to spend some time getting to know their parents and hearing a little bit more about the Korean culture and unique wedding celebrations.
Blessing to both David and Liz and their families as they begin their new life together as a married couple!
