Love and A Live Band At The Casino

After getting ready, Danielle and Clark met at the Casino San Clemente for their first look. Once the two were in position on the lawn, Clark turned around to see his stunning bride. The two immediately gravitated towards each other with smiles on their faces and shared a sweet embrace. Compliments were exchanged between the bride and groom, then they were greeted by their wedding party for group photos. Each groomsman wore light grey, and the bridesmaids wore navy. Together, they posed in front of the camera creating memories to last a lifetime, then lined up for ceremony.

A welcome sign and live band ushered guests into the Rock Garden where they took a seat. An arbor covered in white, red, and pink flowers stood tall and matching floral arrangements marked the back of the aisle. Once each seat was filled, the wedding party made their entrances. Clark watched with a wide grin from the head of the aisle as Danielle gracefully drew nearer. Once joined together, the bride and groom read personal vows and exchanged rings. A kiss concluded the ceremony and friends and family cheered as the newlyweds exited into cocktail hour.

The live band followed everyone out to cocktail hour where Caprese Skewers, Beef Picadillo Empanadas, and Mini Ahi Tacos were being tray passed. A boho inspired lounge complete with white sofa, rattan accent chairs, and coffee table offered guests a relaxing place to sit back and sip on their cocktails while enjoying the ocean breeze. While guests mixed and mingled, Danielle and Clark were posing for sunset photos on the beach. Once they were done with golden hour pictures, the newlyweds returned to the party just in time for reception.

As guests made their way inside, they made sure to stop by Clark and Danielle’s guestbook for a selfie and signature, then found their assigned seats. Greenery hung from the ceiling and floral centerpieces topped each table. Once everyone had found their seats, the newlyweds made their grand entrance into their first dance, then took a seat at their sweetheart table. Toasts were made as dinner was served. Pear and Walnut Salad as the first course, followed by Atlantic Salmon Fillet and Filet Mignon with Oven Roasted Rainbow Fingerling Potatoes and Haricot Verte. The menu was selected by the bride and groom with help from our Event Specialist, Brittany, during their planning process. After dinner, the bride and groom cut into their 2-tiered marble wedding cake and invited guests in indulge in dessert with them. After filling up on sugar, the dance floor became the hot spot. Everyone was dancing to the live music and showing off their best moves which worked up quite an appetite for some. Luckily, Danielle and Clark decided to add a late night snack for their wedding! Outside, our Melt Bar was serving up Quattro Formaggi Melts and Blackberry, Brie, Bacon and Jalapeno Melts to ensure everyone was happily full when the night ended. The band went all out on the last song and everyone left the wedding with full hearts.
