Real Housewife of Orange County, Vicki Gunvalson's Daughter's Vow Renewal

Real Housewives of Orange County, Vicki Gunvalson's daughter, Briana and her husband, Ryan renewed their vows this month, in front of family and friends. If you've been watching the TV show you know that Vicki wasn't happy about their elopement. photos are courtesy of Reality Tea. I love the simplicity of this white cake. Briana's wedding dress fits her personality. It's young, stylish and very appropriate for their outdoor ceremony. She looks so beautiful! I love a big colorful bouquet. Ryan looks very handsome in his Marine uniform. I wish the young couple the very best!
