We all gathered at the Chart House Restaurant in Redondo Beach for a well orchestrated and joyous afternoon into evening Celebration. Aaron and staff we’re ready and on point as usual to treat our guests. We were blessed with a perfect day a bit overcast, but welcomed for awesome photographs and a cool cover. Joined by family and friends from Missouri Arizona Oregon and all over. We gathered right on the sand to witness these two souls whom adore each other pledge to be together for eternity. Amy’s dad was so proud to give his daughters hand in marriage there was not a dry eye in the house, or should I say on the beach! Emotions were very high but we pulled through with good tears and laughs. The sand ceremony was also a grand symbol of the blending of these two lives. followed by the awesome reception it was just inside set up so perfect with all the trimmings and great attention to detail the view was outstanding all the windows facing the glorious sunset over the Pacific ocean as jackie and Amy joined by family and friends they ate fabulous food, partied and danced the night away. Best wishes to Mr and Mrs Flores

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

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 Beautiful Wedding………

Roger had the honor of marrying Mark & Taylor this last weekend at the most extraordinary Redondo Beach Historic Library and Community Center.  It was a beautiful wedding with a fun filled crowd and Roger really pulled out the stops on this one.  Lot’s of laughs and lots of tears.

It was a wonderful wedding…. So much that Mark & Taylor took time out or their celebration to send this note below.

Roger,

Just wanted to say, thank you thank you thank you! You knocked it out of the park with our ceremony.  It was thoughtful, hilarious, and sweet.  We loved it and our guests were absolutely blown away by how funny it was.  It exceeded our expectations and we are so grateful to you for really taking the time to understand what we wanted, and delivering it!!

Sincerely,

Taylor and Mark

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

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.

Michele and Bob had a Casual and Fun Wedding at the Charthouse in Redondo Beach, by Suvin

Michele and Bob have a wonderful love story and celebrated this at the Charthouse in Redondo Beach. They wanted to share this with their guests, so they elected to have the Greatest Package. With this upgraded package, I wrote custom vows and sprinkled tid bits of their relationship into the ceremony by a relationship questionnaire they filled out. They met 37 years ago, crossed paths many times throughout the years, and finally re met through the magic of Facebook! They were such a fun couple, they wanted a casual beach feel with lots of humor. Surrounded by family, friends, and the amazing view of the ocean, they exchanged vows, laughed together, cried together, gave each other that magic kiss, and may they live happily ever after…
