Dena and Chris’ wedding day was nothing short of amazing. So amazing, that I am so sad that it has come and gone because it was the perfect day for a million reasons. From the gorgeous vintage Cadillac that Dena and her dad arrived in to the adorable Barbie car Dena and Chris’ daughter and nephew drove during the ceremony to gelato cart at the reception. The day was a touch of vintage glam with a hint of rock and roll …. exactly what Chris and Dena are as a couple.

Dena and Chris promised to love unconditionally and with all their hearts during an outdoor ceremony at Mesón Sabika. It was simply beautiful. And the day was only filled with more love and beauty as it continued on. Friends and family shared how perfect Dena and Chris are as a couple, how they have grown into the best family with their daughter Kayden, and how much they admire these two for who they are and what they have accomplished over the years.

Dena + Chris – You are both so kind, creative and talented. I am so lucky to have met you both and share in such a special day. I wish you nothing but a lifetime of love and happiness. Much love and xo – Brittany

When I arrived at Dena’s, I immediately fell in love with everything she had picked out. Her jewelry was beyond glamorous and perfect for the look of her day.

Instead of carrying bouquets, all of Dena’s bridesmaids carried these gorgeous fans that were accessorized with flowers.

Chris and Dena decided not to see each other before the ceremony but still wanted to add in the first look to the day. So Chris chose to have a first look with their daughter, Kayden. It was such a sweet moment watching Kayden run up to her Dad on his wedding day.

And Dena waited to see her Dad until right before they drove down the aisle. And this moment, well it was pretty special.

During their ceremony, Chris and Dena had the most beautiful butterfly release in honor of those friends and family who had passed away.

Chris was a drummer in a band for years, so their reception had little hints of rock ‘n roll … like this guitar that they used as guest book.

Guests were treated to gelato after dinner from this adorable little gelato cart.
