Charming and Magical

Regina and Wes planned their wedding at Catta Verdera for October 2020, but the pandemic changed those plans. They settled for a sweet backyard micro-wedding instead. When the venue was able to reopen, Regina and Wes were able to have the wedding they had planned.

Catta Verdera means “magical green place.” With its rolling hills of green lawn and Spanish-style architecture, this venue lives up to its name. Regina and Wes chose this venue for that magic.

Wes, an avid golfer, has played at Catta Verdera often, but on his and Regina’s day, the country club pulled out all the stops. The venue package offered everything a wedding could need. From catering to the elegant champagne wall to cake service, the couple was taken care of.

Because of their wedding in April of 2021, Wes and Regina decided to get ready together. Not only did this allow them to help each other, but it also provided some pure, intimate moments.

Undoubtedly, these were some of the most romantic moments of the day. Regina sat in her mermaid-style gown as Wes lovingly put on her shoes. The light from the window shined down on the two of them.

Soaking In Her Beauty

As Regina headed down the long and winding path toward him, Wes clasped his hands together. Unquestionably, this was his favorite moment. He watched his bride walk toward him as if he was seeing her for the first time.

Happy Together

Unlike their first wedding, which was sweet and small but not what they dreamed of, this wedding was different. In view of family and friends, this vow renewal was what they’d wanted all along. Together, everyone was so happy to celebrate this couple’s love.
