Cory slipped into her beautiful strapless lace wedding dress and was on her way to Mission San Juan Capistrano for her first look with Jonathon. They met at the ruins of the Great Stone Church for a breathtaking backdrop. Cory tapped her future husband on his back and smiled when a look of love and excitement filled his face as he turned around. The two lovebirds walked around The Mission before heading back to Serra Plaza where their wedding ceremony and reception was about to begin.
Not even the rain could stop Cory and Jonathon from tying the knot. The two exchanged their vows with their friends and family by their sides and seated in the pews with umbrellas. Once the two said “I do,” guests hurried inside for cocktail hour. A Bruschetta Station was set up with coarsely chopped tomato pomodoro, olive tapenade, sundried tomato cream cheese, sautéed mushrooms, caramelized onions, gorgonzola crumbles, and balsamic reduction with parmesan crostinis for guests to indulge in before the main course. After snacking and sipping, guests found their seats and the wedding party made their entrance. Cory and Jonathon had their first dance and toasts were made celebrating the newlyweds, then dinner was ready. Three delicious food stations were set up for guests to choose from. The Mac and Cheese Station had either panko crusted, jack, asiago, and gorgonzola mac and cheese or traditional mac and cheese with toppings like applewood smoked bacon, sundried tomatoes, crunchy onions, sliced Italian sausage and sliced mushrooms, and then there was the Street Taco Station and Grilled Flatbread Station that was serving up grilled chicken, goat cheese, arugula and pesto pizzas or pepperoni, sausage and ham pizzas.
After eating their fill at the dinner stations, everyone made their way to the dance floor to show-off their latest two-step. The cake was cut, confetti was thrown, and more dancing was done throughout the remainder of the evening.
