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.
The professionals at Visual Impact Designs created elegant fall florals for this November wedding. Elegant arrays of dahlias, daisies, roses, and lilies in shades of orange, red, and white mingled with grasses and pumpkins to create a warm fall feeling.
Wes’s daughter created handwritten signs for the wedding. Memorial photos added an emotional touch to the day.
Regina wore a mermaid-style strapless gown with a sweetheart neckline. Additionally, Regina wrapped her bare arms in a gorgeous faux fur shoulder wrap clasped with a broach.
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.
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.
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.
The wedding party was dressed in beautiful jewel-toned shades of teal. It should be noted that Bridesmaid Katy’s mohawk inspired Kris to get the same style. Thanks for looking amazing, Katy!
At the entrance of the venue is a beautiful grove of olive trees. This grove made for this scenic backdrop for Regina and Wes’s portraits.
The misty November air gave these wedding images a romantic warmth indicative of the season. As well as that, the gray skies brought out the fall colors of the oaks trees throughout the grounds.
The happy couple’s grand entrance was met with applause as they strolled onto the dancefloor.
As the DJ played their song, they twirled and dipped their way across the room.
With a little change of tempo, Regina sat her husband down and did a hula for him, much to his delight.
And with that, friends and family offered toasts and tributes to the husband and wife.
Following toasts, Regina and Wes cut into this incredible cake created by Above and Beyond Cakes.
After which, they and their guests danced the night away and ended with a fantastic sparkler exit!
