We'll raise a glass to this! The stately colonial, which served as the backdrop to iconic '90s movie "Father of the Bride," sold quickly in Alhambra, California — a city located eight miles from LA — for the asking price of $1.998 million. It went on the market this past June.

The home appeared in the original 1991 production starring Steve Martin, Kimberly Williams-Paisley and Diane Keaton, and made a re-appearance in the sequel “Father of the Bride II,” which was released in 1995.

Fans will surely recognize the home's basketball court, where Martin and his movie daughter, Williams-Paisley, shot hoops one-on-one and melted our hearts with their father-daughter musings.

The backyard set the scene for the movie's various wedding and backyard moments, which were shot across the half-acre property.

In the movie, the exterior shots were actually filmed in front of a nearly identical house located in Pasadena, California.
