SAN DIEGO — A thief who posed as a guest at Cal­i­for­nia wed­dings and stole wal­lets, credit cards and cash from brides, guests and wed­ding work­ers will be hon­ey­moon­ing in prison.

KNSD-TV SAYS Denise Gun­der­son was sen­tenced Wed­nes­day to seven years be­hind bars. She has pre­vi­ous felony con­vic­tions.

Pros­e­cu­tors say last year, Gun­der­son showed up at sev­eral San Diego County wed­dings, went into rooms and of­fices and stole valu­ables dur­ing the ceremonies.

Au­thor­i­ties say Gun­der­son used the credit cards to make thou­sands of dol­lars in pur­chases at Costco, Wal­mart and other stores — some­times only min­utes af­ter the wed­ding vows were taken.

Sur­veil­lance video caught Gun­der­son at sev­eral wed­ding lo­ca­tions and stores.

She was ar­rested last De­cem­ber in Las Ve­gas and pleaded guilty in Fe­bru­ary to grand theft and iden­tity theft. — AP
