All They Want for Christmas

santa_katz-mariage.jpgLast Saturday, Alan Katz gave one couple a very memorable wedding day when he married them while dressed as Santa Claus.
“Santa” Katz has portrayed the Jolly Ol’ Elf at the Marketplace Shopping Center for 15 years. David Ridge, an active-duty Marine, and Arianne Sepulveda, a production assistant for film, tied the knot in a ceremony in front of the Christmas tree located in the center of the mall.
The couple exchanged vows in a heartfelt ceremony before family members, holiday carolers and several shoppers who stopped to witness the 15-minute ceremony. Katz even threw a few “hohoho’s” into the ceremony.
During the proceedings, Katz commended the groom for his service in the armed forces defending the United States as well as to Arianne for her support of David in his allegiance to the nation.
They were pronounced husband and wife at 2:45 p.m. The carolers broke into song as the happy couple hugged each other and their families.
