Coastal California Inspired Wedding at The Casino San Clemente
White rose bushes were in full bloom when Maddy and Connor met on the front lawn for their first look at The Casino San Clemente. A tap on the shoulder turned Connor around to see Maddy standing before him in a white dress with lace detail. The couple shared sweet compliments and read personalized vows to one another, then joined their bridesmaids and groomsmen for group pictures. The groomsmen wore tan suits matching Connor, and the bridesmaids were dressed in sage. Together, the friends smiled for the camera creating lasting memories before lining up for ceremony.
Greenery and white flowers decorated the mantle inside the Rock Garden matching the surrounding lush landscape. Guests found their seats, and the wedding party made their entrances down the aisle ending with Maddy. In front of all their closest friends and family, the bride and groom recited vows, exchanged rings, and sealed the ceremony with a kiss.
Beef Picadillo Empanadas and Polotè were tray passed around the Patio of the Stars for cocktail hour while the bar served up drinks. A coastal inspired blue and beige lounge provided a stylish place for guests to sit back and mingle until dinner. While everyone was enjoying appetizers, the newlyweds headed to the beach for golden hour pictures together as husband and wife. Upon their return, it was time for dinner.
Inside, tables were topped with flickering candles, fresh florals, and specialty tableware to match the beachy theme. Connor and Maddy made their grand entrance, shared their first dance, and took a seat at their sweetheart table. Tequila Lime Chicken, Slow Roasted Carnitas, Fajita Veggies, Spanish Rice, and Mexican Caesar Salad were served. The menu was selected by the bride and groom with help from our event specialist, Brittany. While everyone enjoyed dinner, family and friends shared toasts. Glasses clinked in the air after the last speech, then the newlyweds invited everyone to indulge in our Classic Dessert Station with a collection of Raspberry Chocolate Decadence Cakes, Fresh Fruit Tarts, Vanilla Bean Chocolate Eclairs, Mango and Passion Fruit Macarons, and French Apple Tarts. After dessert, guests headed to the dance floor where they remained the rest of the evening celebrating Maddy and Connor.
