Real Wedding :: Leo Carrillo Ranch wedding

Mike Hogan of Entertainment At Large had this to say about a recent wedding he provided entertainment for.  Leo Carrillo Ranch was absolutely the perfect venue for Devin and Leesa. They were looking for something unique and relaxed and the Ranch fit the bill. The décor was amazing and Personal Touch Dining got to break out their new Corn Hole Game which was a big hit during the cocktail hour. It was a Sunday afternoon wedding so brunch was served and of course the food was amazing, you’ve gotta like French Toast at a wedding! I loved Devin and Leesa’s eclectic taste in music and the dance floor was packed all afternoon!! A special thanks to Leah and Nikka for being so great to work with, you both made for a great celebration!
