Getting Married in an Orange Grove……

Image

Roger has always said that one of his favorite places to marry couples is in the middle of a lemon grove called Limoneria Ranch. Well, yesterday he can now add an orange grove to that list.  It’s fittingly called The Grove. It’s located out in Redlands and not only is it smack dab in the middle of a working orange grove, but a beautiful view of the Valley as well !   Plus, the brides and grooms’ rooms were amazing !  The girls had a bungalow in the grove and the boys had their own treehouse !!  This was for a wonderful couple by the name of Eddie & Dorian.  She was pretty relaxed but our Eddie was pretty nervous.  So Roger not only got him laughing during the ceremony but brought it serious when needed.  It was a perfect wedding.

Congratulations to Kristie Beckman & Thomas Rinehart on their March 5, 2017 wedding at The Mitten Building in Redlands, CA.  The ceremony went exactly as planned with the “nervous ” groom managing to get through the ceremony in one piece!  He was breathing so heavy, we couldn’t keep the candles lit.  Kristie’s entrance was great as she entered right on queue with the Bagpipes.  They added the Sand Ceremony to the traditional ceremony for the perfect personal ceremony.  My best to the happy couple!

Congratulations to Janda McGee & Omar Maciel on their September 16, 2016 wedding at The Mitten Building in Redlands, CA.  The event was well-organized, despite the fact that there was no on-site coordinator.  Everything went as planned and the ceremony started “on time!” (with absolutely no glitches).  The bride and groom, as well as the entire bridal party, including the Flower girl and Ring bearer looked great!  Guests enjoyed the ceremony and were ready for a great party.  In the words of Janda … “It all started with a beer!”

Officiant Michael is on a Wedding Roll!

Michael1- MM

Matthew and Manuela were married at a walk-on style beach wedding in Marina Del Rey.  This was a beautiful, intimate ceremony with the happy couple and their family.  After we performed their wedding under a palm tree, we went directly to the sidewalk where Matthew broke the glass and the entire family (and a few friendly onlookers) shouted Mazel Tov!

They also sent a quick thank you to Michael:

“Thank you so much! Everything was amazing and you were fantastic!!!

We all had a great time!”

Nate and Marissa found Wilshire Restaurant, in Santa Monica, to have a fantastic outdoor area to be a perfect backdrop for their light-hearted and fun ceremony.  After they exchanged vows and I Do’s, I scurried out of the way for their first kiss which their photographer captured from behind them, facing the audience and through a firepit!

Megan and Diana are a couple after my own heart – gamers!  After a lengthy first meeting over coffee where we exchanged tales of electronic victories, I had the privileged to learn all about their life as a couple: from first meeting through proposal and beyond.  Their ceremony remained true to their gamer essence. We performed an originally written Paopu Fruit Ceremony which is from the Kingdom Hearts video game series, their rings were kept in Pokémon balls and their tables were all labeled with classic games.  After their ceremony, which was held at the Mitten Building in Redlands, I retold their love story, they produced an enormous fantasy-style sword which they used to cut the cake.  Rock on ladies!

Richard and Aimee’s wedding, held at The 1909 in Topanga, was all about laughter and fun – would you expect anything else from a couple who both brought each other Gummy Bears on their first date?  We performed a beautiful Wine Box and Love Letter ceremony under their Chuppah. After I pronounced them husband and wife, Richard took his heel straight to a glass with an awesome crush and Mazel Tov!  I’m sure the rest of their reception was full of just as much energy, they had an entire candy buffet setup with delectable sugary delights!
