Light Pink and White Wedding at The Casino San Clemente
Elizabeth and her bridesmaids added the finishing touches to their looks at the Casino San Clemente while Michael and his groomsmen suited up at a nearby hotel. Each bridesmaid wore silky, champagne-colored dresses and the bride wore a lace dress. Together, the girls posed for the camera while the guys drove over to meet them at the venue. Once Michael and the groomsmen arrived, he and Elizabeth met for their first look as the bridal party watched from the sidelines. With a tap of the shoulder, Michael turned around and a huge smile filled his face. The bride and groom exchanged sweet compliments, then their friends jumped in for group photos before ceremony.
Guests arrived in the Rock Garden and found their seats. The fireplace mantle was topped with light pink flowers and greenery matching the arrangements at the back of the aisle. Once everyone had taken a seat, live music cued up and Michael led the processional down the aisle ending with Elizabeth. In front of all their friends and family, the bride and groom read personalized vows, exchanged rings, and sealed the ceremony with a kiss.
Cocktail hour was held on the Patio of the Stars. Guests gathered around cocktail tables and snacked on tray passed Black Bean and Sweet Potato Empanadas, Polote and Mini Al Pastor Tacos. After family photos, the bride and groom were able to join their guests on the patio and mingle before heading inside for dinner.
Guests checked the seating chart and found their assigned tables inside just in time for dinner. Each table was draped in white linen and topped with greenery garland, taupe plates, gold flatware, and a knotted napkin. Wicker chandeliers and more greenery hung from above. Elizabeth and Michael made their grand entrance into their first dance then took their seat. Toasts were shared and Tequila Lime Chicken, Barbacoa Shredded Beef, Black Beans, and Mexican Caesar Salad was served. The menu was selected by the bride and groom during their planning process with our Event Specialist, Brittany. After dinner, the newlyweds cut into their 2-tiered almond wedding cake and invited guests to enjoy a slice for dessert. The evening ended with everyone out on the dance floor showing off their best moves.
