Beautiful Wedding Location
We all have our own idea of “New York…”
We all have our own idea of “Hollywood…”
The each concept is vivid.
On a trip to the Grand Canyon in 2001 BC (before kids) I heard a variety of languages French, Dutch and Japanese being spoken. I asked a German couple why they decided to travel to the Grand Canyon? They said, “They wanted to see the country where John Wayne came from.” Wow, now there’s an idea that brought that couple halfway around the world. Hollywood in many ways has promoted that self reliant pioneer spirit that won the West; which is a good thing.
I invite you to ponder the idea “Japanese Garden…”

Seeing pictures is fine but I recommend going there and experiencing this location for your self. In the meantime check out the video:
This is a beautiful location; probably one of the best kept secrets in Los Angeles.

Wedding and Special Event Professionals
It’s a big responsibility to be chosen to provide music for a couple’s wedding and additionally I think it somewhat of an honor to be chosen by someone who works in the wedding industry to perform for their wedding. It’s a nice acknowledgement to be recognized for what we do. Sheila and I are glad to have been part of their special day and share the moment. Thank you and congratulations Stacia and Renzo!
