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 !

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 !!!!!!

Octavio Saves the Day at the Quiet Cannon in Montebello

Let me start by saying I have a very special place in my heart for this beautiful family! We met at a Bridal Show in Quiet Cannon and bonded immediately!!!! Their energies are so special I fell in love with them and was honored they chose me to be a part of such an important day in their lives!!!

Their ceremony was scheduled to start at 5 PM. For some reason there was a miscommunication with the DJ and he wasn’t at the ceremony site. He was still setting up at the reception room. We had to wait half hour for him to bring his laptop and set up the music so that we could start the ceremony. Unfortunately he needed an outlet to plug in his computer and there was none available. Luckily I pulled out one of my wedding playlists on my phone, got the authorization from the bride, and queued the music for the DJ to control it.

It ended up being perfect! Even though it wasn’t the actual songs the bride had picked, she was very happy that I was able to save the day and had some songs she loved! Even the DJ was impressed that the officiant was able to save the ceremony!

During the ceremony we did a family sand ceremony including Anthony, the couple’s son. I’m a huge fan of including family members in the sand ceremony. It’s symbolic to the fact that from that day on you will all be united as one, a family!

I had a wonderful time officiating Lionel & Yennyfer’s wedding!! They are truly special people to me!!

An Emotional Ceremony at the Quiet Cannon in Montebello

Pat and Henry were such a fun loving couple. Since the first time we met, they had a great sense of humor, and they were obviously madly in love. They requested a Christian inspired ceremony, and i was happy to perform their ceremony at the Quiet Cannon in Montebello.

Richard of Mijo Entertainment provided an awesome speaker with microphone, which ensured the successful delivery of my performance celebrating Pat and Henry’s love.

Instead of a guestbook, they had a canvas with some colors, requesting their guests to place their fingerprint and signature on their tree of love. During their hand blessing, I incorporated that not only are their fingers and lives joined in unity, but they have left their fingerprint on each other’s lives.

The ceremony brought laughs, tears, and love to the couple and their guests.

Cesar & Rene got married at Quiet Cannon in Montebello.

Their wedding at Quiet Cannon was absolutely beautiful! They had so many groomsmen and bridesmaids that made it look so formal!

We designed a bilingual ceremony. With some English and Spanish elements. The wedding prayer at the end of the ceremony was done bilingual. Every line I said in Spanish I would proceed with another line in English.

It was the first time I had ever done a bilingual wedding prayer. And it came out beautifully! This just goes to show you that we literally will customize your ceremony according to your needs! No questions asked and no extra fee! It's all about you and we celebrate your day! Do not hesitate to ask for what you want!

Cesar & Rene I wish you all the blessings in the world. You both have a soft spot in my heart and I will forever love you!

Octavio has a bilingual Catholic ceremony at the quiet cannon

Fernando & Veronica's wedding took place at Quiet Cannon in Montebello. This is a great venue because you can have an outdoor ceremony in a beautiful setting and an indoor reception so you and you guests are not hot throughout the day. 

 

Their ceremony was catholic and bilingual. The couple also asked me to incorporate the Lasso ritual which was draped over their shoulders by Veronica's aunt and grandmother. 

 

Her bridesmaids were wearing long black dresses with red high heels which was very dramatic and they all looked absolutely gorgeous. This is not the most common combination for weddings but in my opinion it really looks great!

 

Fernando and Veronica, thank you for giving me the opportunity to officiate your wedding! I'm truly blessed and wish you both all the blessings in the World!

Octavio Marries Couples at La Venta and Quiet Cannon

Oct- Laura & michael-08-2014

Laura and Michael tied the Knott at Quiet Cannon Golf Course in Montebello. This is a great location for weddings as they have a big gazebo and their outdoor wedding are provides privacy.

Laura and Michael asked Octavio to incorporate the sand ceremony and the arras ritual. Their sand colors were grey and purple which made a beautiful combination they can use as a decoration for their home. This is something we always recommend couples think about when picking their sand colors. They don’t necessarily have to be your wedding colors.

Christine & Robert tied the Knott at La Venta Inn in Palos Verdes. Octavio told us this is the most spectacular venue he has officiated at. The views are out of this world gorgeous as you can see from the picture below. Christine’s daughter found this venue and told her mom, “you must get married here!”.

The ceremony was beautiful! Octavio wrote a portion of the ceremony along with Christine acknowledging her children and Robert’s children. We love acknowledging the couples’ loved ones in my ceremonies. It’s always a beautiful thing to do!
