From Nashville,Tennessee to Malibu, California

woody1Woody performed a beautiful walk on ceremony in Malibu for this wonderful couple.

They are originally from California, so they traveled all the way from Nashville to get married, toes in the sand, at Point Dume.

With the waves crashing along the rocks, and the cliff as a backdrop, the couple exchanged vows and i dos.

They had a couple’s rose exchange, a perfect first gift for their married life together.

It was another picture-perfect beach wedding for Woody and his couple Monica and Brandon on the Redondo Beach.

SAM_1663Either this couple plans on taking Woody with them on their honeymoon, or Woody just spotted a shark. It was another picture-perfect beach wedding for Woody and his couple Monica and Brandon on the Redondo Beach.

We want to kiss right at sunset” at Gladstone’s in Malibu

SAM_1658“We want to kiss right at sunset” was the instructions given to Woody by Tatiana and Stephen. With Woody’s skills…..this is exactly what happened. Tatiana and Stephen had a Catholic Lite ceremony, which included their own vows which filled the beach behind Gladstone’s restaurant in Malibu with tears and laughter. And yes….the kiss was right at sunset.  SAM_1656

A Beautiful Walk-on Ceremony at the Malibu Pier

SAM_1547Woody recently had the pleasure of wedding Clayton and Cristy. The couple came in from Colorado to be married at the Malibu Pier. This location meant a lot to Clayton, as he grew up surfing here.

Is was a simple ceremony with just Woody and the couple, until a surprise visitor came to see what was going on…..a Sea Lion! One doesn't often get celebrities like that, so Woody took an intermission in the ceremony so that Clayton and Cristy could get some photos.SAM_1549

After the ceremony, Clayton mentioned that both of his Parents were buried at sea. Could the Sea Lion have been a representative of Clayton's Parents? Woody likes to think so.SAM_1553

Officiant Woody’s Fabulous Ceremonies Pt. 1

Blog-Woody1Woody married John and Sabrina at Point Dume in Malibu. Luckily, the wedding ceremony went much smoother than the pictures!


Is that Woody with William Randolph Hearst and Marion Davies? No, it’s Angela & Michael just after they were married by Woody at the Marion Davies Guest House in Santa Monica. This gorgeous venue was built in the 1920s by William Randolph Hearst for beautiful actress Marion Davies.


Woody sometimes feels like a Traveling Minister going from ranch to ranch performing weddings. Here he is with Alma and Juan in Agoura Hills at the serene Peter Strauss Ranch. And of course, no wedding is complete without the obligatory paparazzi shot!


Woody does so many weddings at the Calamigos Ranch in Malibu, they will soon be naming a horse after him! Or so he hopes! Here he is with bride and groom, Lauren and Zachary.
