The Engagement

They got engaged on Ana’s birthday/Christmas of 2022.

Ana and Diego’s wedding at the Refinery at Perona Farms was a classic event with a black-and-white theme. They were married in the Atrium, a unique and beautiful indoor/outdoor ceremony area with a green wall and string lights. Ana wore a breathtaking ballgown fit for a princess, and Diego and his groomsmen were dapper in classic tuxedos. The bridesmaids wore magenta gowns in different styles. Bouquets were classic white roses and calla lilies.

Guests were then led to the rustic yet elegant Refinery, where tall glass candlesticks paired with low white centerpieces decorated the tables draped in black. For the reception, Ana changed into an ethereal gown with off-the-shoulder draped sleeves.
