Katherine and Ryan’s beautiful, early-summer Ritz-Carlton Bacara wedding was everything you think of when considering a “classic and elegant” celebration. They selected the Bacara resort for its role in their history as a couple; it was the setting for the first time Kate spent time with Ryan’s family (an experience the bride describes as “magical”) and was also where Ryan popped the question!
The father of the groom also had a little surprise for the couple, inviting the USC Marching Band to appear during the reception. Katherine and Ryan first met at USC, so this was a particularly meaningful gesture for them (they were SO excited and SO surprised!).
The weather was perfect, the venue was breathtaking, and we had an incredible time with this beautiful couple.
