Real Wedding Shenanigans: Kat & Bryan

Following a church ceremony, family and friends met Kat & Bryan at Villa del Sol d'Oro for the reception. Beautiful signage welcomed guests to the private villa, where they then dined to some appetizers and beverages made by Santa Anita Gardens Catering. With extravagant floral bouquets, this couple's color palette was infused with gold accents. A dream setting, their four-tiered cake was delightful, creating a whimsical explosion of flavors. Capturing these precious moments, Kat & Bryan hired a Photo Booth company and made sure that guests took home their pictures as memorabilia and a token of the day. Congratulations again to Kat and Bryan, love is in the air!
