Check out these three weddings at Calamigos Ranch in Malibu, the Piru Mansion in Fillmore, and the Portofino Hotel in Redondo Beach

Image

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‚Ķ‚Ķ. ¬†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 ‚Äúadditional guests‚ÄĚ ! ¬†But Roger, the trooper he was, gave a wonderful ceremony albeit a very noisy one !

Last weekend was busy with two intimate and unique ceremonies that I will always remember.

Image

Redondo Beach was the setting for the wedding of Karl and Cathy Aldridge. Close friends and family gathered at the Portofino hotel. The most touching moments aside from the love the ride and grok clearly displayed was the affection their wedding party had for them.

Congrats Karl and Cathy!

A small cadre of family and friends gathered at the home of the neighbor of wedding couple Doug and Truc for a traditional Vietnamese Tea Ceremony that preceded the vow exchange.

The bride and groom presented gifts to each other’s parents who then blessed the union with the receipt of tea and wine.

Richard Smith and Cynthia Fierro chose everything well for their wedding on the 24th of June:¬† the Portofino Hotel’s outdoor chapel overlooking Redondo Beach breakwater; their entourage of “best people” which consisted of their six grown children;¬† “Ave Maria” played live on a concert harp;¬† a ceremony true to their vision, led by Rev. Dr. Gary Barmore of Great Officiants;¬† and of course, the most important choice — each other as beloved married companions, each pledging “I give you all my trust, and all my tomorrows.”

Roger married a wonderful couple Ed and Jillian this last weekend at one of his favorite places, the Portofino Hotel in Redondo Beach.  Always a favorite of his because of the view, the ocean breeze, the arguing seals and an overall great place to tie the knot !  Plus, Roger had many compliments from the guests on how much fun the wedding was !  A picture perfect wedding !
