Kat+Chepo Wedding| Casa Real | Ruby Hill Winery |Pleasanton, CA

Kat and Chepo had their beautiful December wedding at the Casa Real in Ruby Hill Winery in Pleasanton, CA.  The day started off with the entourage getting ready at the hotel.  The anticipation building up to their first look was just too exciting.  During the gift exchange, Kat hooked Chepo up with his very own WWE Championship belt complete with his name engraved on it!  That’s probably the best gift for a groom to date.

The wedding ceremony and reception was beautifully lit with a nice warm-toned ambiance with a very cool monogram of their “CK” theme.  Awesome wedding with awesome people.  Good job Kat!  You did a great job planning this wedding!

You may remember Kat and Chepo from their San Francisco engagement portrait session.

It’s suppose to chase the bad weather away.  It works!

The ceremony room at Casa Real Ruby Hill Winery. Niiice.

A grand entrance to the Eye of the Tiger. Winner!

Thank you to my second shooter for this awesome shot!

The slide show was a hit! More on that in the end…

If you know Chepo, you know he’s gotta do things a little different.  For the reception slideshow, Chepo laid down some dope rhymes to the beat of the classic rap song “Just a Friend.” This remix pretty much tells the story of Kat and Chepo.  From their beginnings with XPO and DOX to their proposal on the Empire state building, this is a great love story.  Check it out:
