    between segments of a rehearsal
     and parts of the actual wedding,
       showing the evolution 
         from the rough first stages 
           to the polished ceremony.











  A Short-Notice Wedding 
     Under the
Pear Tree

This video shows Rick conducting 
a short-notice ceremony, 
   needed because the groom 
     had orders to report 
       for his military assignment.













HUGS AND KISSES

at the 
Santa Cruz Lighthouse

These two were high school sweethearts who reconnected 20 years later, and were married by Rick on the beach in Santa Cruz.














DESTINATION WEDDING: 
San Francisco 

Rick united this great couple,
who came from Indiana 
to get married in 
San Francisco's Sutro Park,
overlooking the Pacific Ocean.
See and hear their Story.  










The EXPRESSION
of INTENT

This is where Rick makes sure 
that they really, really 
want to go through with it ...















TRADITION:
Breaking the Glass

Honoring a centuries-old
family wedding ritual
 
















TRADITION:
Classic Wedding Vows

to marry them
using the same vows
the groom's grandparents 
had taken
73 years earlier













REHEARSAL, beneath

  some
REDWOOD TREES

The rehearsal
for this California couple

-- from Tokyo -- 
to be at the wedding
