Roger was very excited to be marrying Daniel & Liz that last weekend. They had been at a few of his previous weddings and knew that they wanted him for their wedding. And what made this doubly special is that the wedding was being held at the Beverly Garland in Studio City just a couple miles from Roger’s house and the Beverly Garland is also a regular haunt for Roger and his family having had Thanksgiving dinners there on more than one occasion.
The only possible issue is that Daniel and Liz wanted streamers thrown by the guests as they walked down the aisle as husband & wife. The problem was that the venue doesn’t allow streamers !! And Roger only found this out as he was just walking up the aisle to perform the ceremony whispered to him by the wedding coordinator….. So at the end of the amazing ceremony, Roger made the announcement about the streamers but also everyone needed to pick up after themselves after the wedding……….Well that didn’t happen……… except for one groomsman………and Roger !!! It didn’t take long for the two of them to clean up and the groomsman was taken aback that the minister of the wedding was cleaning up too !! Roger…… A Great Officiant and Groundskeeper !!!
Roger had the honor of officiating the wedding of Edward and Roda this last weekend at ever so beautiful Coyote Hills Country Club in Fullerton. This wedding was amazingly touching. The groom Edward, a pretty stoic, mans man of a guy, had tears running down his face as Roda walked down the aisle. And to top it off, their fur-baby Cosmo was spot on walking down the aisle in his “tux”. And Roger knocked it out of the park with a great ceremony. It was a perfect day !
Roger got to partake in a roller coaster of a ride this last weekend when he married a wonderful couple, Jose & Crystal at the Orcutt Ranch in West Hills. Roger has married couples there before and it’s a beautiful venue and always spot on…….. But this particular Sunday, it seemed like Murphy’s Law was raising it’s ugly head and messing with the day! First of all, the ceremony was running behind by 45 minutes plus…. And to top it off, there was no power to the ceremony site. Thank goodness for the amazing work of DJ Omid who literally saved the day and was able to jerry rig everything together to get power, thus sound and music for the ceremony. And the wedding planner Erica Kumala kept everybody on their toes trying to get things back on track. Plus the photographers had to double time because of losing light…. And all this amazing work was happening all the while our couple knew nothing about it. And that is the way is should be. Roger was very proud to be part of such an amazing team of vendors who turned a hectic day into a perfect day ! Touche to all ! Oh yeah, Roger crushed the wedding too !
Roger had the honor of marrying Angel and Nancy this last weekend at the Andres Pico Adobe Park in Mission Hills. This little gem is is one of the oldest adobe structures in the city of Los Angeles. Built in 1834, it represents a bygone ear and the rich historical past of San Fernando Valley. And this is where our Angel and Nancy wanted to have their wedding ceremony. Both being long time residents of San Fernando Valley, they thought it would be the perfect place to tie the knot ! And with Roger’s help, the wedding was a great success !Share This Post: Follow Us On Social Media:
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 !Share This Post: Follow Us On Social Media:
Roger had the pleasure of marrying Jason & Katie this last weekend at the always spot on and professional Coyote Hills Golf Club in Fullerton. It was rather fitting that Jason and Katie marry at a golf course because that met in golf college and both make their living in the world of golf ! They are a truly amazing couple who couldn’t wait for this day to happen. They both laughed and cried during the ceremony and it was a wonderful day. And Jason and Katie added something most unusual to their ceremony, something Roger had never heard of…. It’s called the Lovelock Tree Of Life Ceremony. It’s presented as this beautiful framed tree that holds places for “lovelocks” that represent major moments in their lives. The locks have no keys and cannot be opened. Their first lock was presented by both parents and was locked onto the Tree Of Live right then and there during the ceremony. It was a beautiful touch to a perfect wedding.
Roger had the pleasure of marrying Robert & Christine this last weekend at the Double Tree Hotel in San Pedro. A beautiful small hotel just off the water. And Rob & Christine, although only having a handful of guests, wanted it memorable. Roger told them not to worry, that is the only kind of wedding he does. And Roger had a lot of fun with this one. You see, Robert is with the CIA and Roger asked him if he should mention that or not and Robert said he had nothing to hide ha ! So Roger pulled out the stops and gave the a fun-filled wedding with lots of laughs and tears ! It truly was a perfect, intimate wedding. And Roger passed the background check too !
Roger had his comedy skills tested that last weekend when he had the very fun job of officiating the wedding for Dennis & Krystyna at the Old Ranch Country Club in Seal Beach. Now Roger knew from the first time he met with Dennis & Krystyna that Dennis was a joker…..big time ! And every time Dennis would throw out a joke at the planning meeting, Krystyna would just roll her eyes. She was used to his comedy ways and expected no less of it at the wedding. And boy oh boy did he deliver ! All thru the ceremony Dennis had funny lines and comments, mostly only that Kyrstyna and Roger could hear, so both Krystyna and Roger had to keep their wits about them in order to get thru the wedding ! All in all, it was the perfect wedding and Dennis is missing his calling as a comedian !Share This Post: Follow Us On Social Media:
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 !Share This Post: Follow Us On Social Media:
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 !Share This Post: Follow Us On Social Media:
