Joe turned to see his beautiful bride Sophia in her lace wedding dress as she approached him for their first look at The Casino San Clemente. Sweet smiles met their faces and hugs and kisses were shared. Their closest friends and family then came over for group photos before the ceremony. The bridesmaids wore flowing slate blue dresses and held light pink and peach bouquets. The groomsmen were suited up in slate grey. Sophia held a beautiful bouquet with white roses, pink ranunculus, anemones, peachy peonies, succulents and eucalyptus leaves. Joe was rocking bright blue and yellow socks that added a pop of color and some fun to his look. The two lovebirds went their separate ways before their special walk down the aisle.
The ceremony space was decorated with petals and bright pink and peach flowers mixed with kumquats on the mantle. A live band began playing as the wedding party walked arm in arm down the aisle. You could see Joe’s breath being taken away just by his expression the entire time Sophia was walking towards him. Personalized vows were exchanged, and the ceremony was sealed with a kiss.
Cocktail hour consisted of Tortilla Chips & Salsa with Queso Fundido and Beef Empanadas with Cilantro Sour Cream and guests didn’t have to wait long for dinner. Everyone made their way inside to enjoy a dinner buffet of Spanish Caesar Salad, Cheese Enchiladas Ranchero, Tequila Lime Chicken, Black Beans and Spanish Rice while heartfelt toasts were made, and laughs were shared. A 3-tiered wedding cake with one layer being chocolate cake with vanilla Bavarian filling and the other two layers being white cake with strawberry crème filling had guests wanting more. The evening ended on the dance floor where Sophia and Joe kept the party alive with sombreros, lookalike pinatas and fun dance moves.
