[KHTS] – Frank Ferry, former Santa Clarita mayor and high school principal, married his longtime sweetheart Mori Rouhani on Saturday.

The backyard ceremony was held at Rouhani’s home in West Hills. About 40 relatives attended the event.

Sons of Ferry and Rouhani, Nick Ferry, Jake Ferry, Keon Parsa and Kayvon Parsa were the groomsmen, while Liliana Khabbaz was the maid of honor.

Former Santa Clarita City Manager Ken Pulskamp officiated the ceremony.

frankwed1The couple had a violinist, pianist, belly dancers and Jake Ferry DJing at the reception. The wedding reception was combined with a graduation party for Keon and Nick who both graduated from college.

“I’m so ecstatic. I keep looking at the ring on my finger,” Ferry said. “I haven’t had one on my finger in 10 years. I’m just one of those guys who likes being a husband. I’m not a bachelor, single kind of guy.”

While Ferry is happy with how things turned out, the meeting was not exactly the stuff of fairy tales, he joked.

“My son Jake called me about three years ago and said, ‘Dad, we have a new dentist and she wouldn’t let me in because she needs a parent signature,'” Ferry said. “It was the first day of spring break, and I didn’t get to sleep in.”

Ferry went to the office for a teeth cleaning and to sign the paper for his son. The receptionist told Ferry that there was a new doctor, and he argued with her saying he wanted his old doctor.

“I was a total jerk, I asked her how long she had been a dentist, where she went to school, what she ranked in her class,” Ferry said. “She ended up leaving and not examining my teeth.”

Ferry returned the following day and the couple hit it off, he said. He eventually found out she went to USC, finished first in her class and was the West Coast Dental Director for Smile Care, he said. She currently has her own practice Rouhani & Khabbatz Dental Corp.

Rouhani was born in Tehran, Iran, and moved during the revolution in the 1970s to Japan and then came to the United States, Ferry said.

frankwed2Ferry asked Rouhani to lunch and later told Pulskamp, “This person is the one I’m going to marry.”

Ferry proposed a year later during a romantic dinner on Valentine’s Day.

“It was just one of those get-down-on-a-knee proposals,” Ferry said. “I asked her dad for permission first – I’m a little old fashioned.”

Since he’s no longer city councilman or a principal, Ferry started a company Creating Stronger Communities, which lobbies for companies in need a representative within a city or county government. He also helps his new wife at her dental office.

“She’s the most passionate, interesting, hard-working, kind and just a beautiful person inside and out,” Ferry said.

The couple plans to go to South Korea in October and just came back from Naples, Fla., where they vacationed for a week.

“Once you divorce, you just never think you’re gonna get married, and when you meet someone who just hits you over the head with a hammer,” Ferry joked, “it’s just awesome.”

  25. No, what is sad is the negativity of all the faceless cowardly strangers posting nasty and rude comments on a picture of a couple they know nothing about!

  26. Congrats to the happy couple! It makes me sad to see a lot of the comments written here today. I didn’t know our community had so many hateful people in it. This is his wedding notice, not a political piece….shame on you…

    Seriously folks !! BOTH people are successful professionals in SCV. There is no sugar daddy here ! Both are citizens too !! Two people who found each other and fell in love. I personally know them both, and believe me they are caring and loving people. Dr. Rouhani is a beautiful person inside and out, and it is all natural beauty. Do you know where SCV would be with Frank Ferry ? a quarter of what it is now!! I was amazed to see all he had accomplished for our great city. People read this site, how can you bash people you don’t even know?

  45. Gisoo Javadi Gisoo Javadi says:

    I’ll never forget when this pitiful pile harassed me by leaving multiple screaming voicemails on my phone accusing me of something I did not do. When his demands and assumptions weren’t met he simply used his power to not only harass me in person and the presence of an officer, but to expel me as a student. His last words as an assistant principle was that he simply “lived for days like this” It’s a wonder how characters such as ferry land administrative positions in education let alone city counsel. Downright lying cheating politician, and a disgrace to the human race. Hopefully his misconceptions of midal eastern women bites him in his fat ass because he’s looking in the wrong place for a submissive wife.

  46. Jim Oge Jr Jim Oge Jr says:

    Mail order bride???

  47. Caren Curren Caren Curren says:

    Frank Ferry, mediocre teacher turned politician…enough said. My kids found him loud, obnoxious and verging on violent. His bride I know nothing about. What makes this newsworthy? Just another politico trying to get himself in the limelight. Our city is a mess and growing.

  48. Caren ,u pretty much said what I was going to say.I know this man , so I can state my opinion. He is 2 faced to whom we thought were close to him..but then again so is his brother Vince but he is worse So.But hey it’s not the brides fault. congrats ,Dr. Roubini..

  49. Congrats mr ferry so happy for you! Long time its been!

  50. Emily Curren Emily Curren says:

    Who cares! This city sucks! And I’m proud to be a hater! This place will soon turn into crap especially with the new 1300 homes going in! But hey let’s stop and take a minute to report some “important” news

  51. Congrats to the lovely couple

  52. Congrats to the bride and groom. May you have many happy and healthy anniversaries!

  53. Johnni Castillo says:

    I asked her how long she had been a dentist, where she went to school, what she ranked in her class,” Ferry said. “She ended up leaving and not examining my teeth.”

    Not a good leader, you can tell a good person off the bat.

  54. Nick Ferry Facebook famous lol

  55. Congrats Mr Ferry and screw all the haters. He is a great man i worked for him for three years and the kids love him.

  56. Rosa Luna Rosa Luna says:

    Beautiful couple, congratulations !!

  57. I can’t believe how many people are taking something as a great as a marriage announcement to publicly criticize these amazing individuals. Grow up. Most of you are middle aged losers envious or bitter of another decent man’s success. You try and run this city and make it what it is today. You become principal of a very successful school. You try and raise two kids at the same time. You deal with those pressures then let’s see what you have to say. Congrats to Frank and Mori. The majority of us are truly grateful for you and all you’ve done and love to see you happy. Love you guys!

  58. Congratulations Frank Ferry ♡

  59. Another Santa Clarita lover here! Congratulations, Frank and Mori! Thank you for your service to our city and to our youth, Mr. Ferry!
