Rust Details and Fall Florals for a Wedding at The Casino

Celina finished getting ready inside the bridal suite at the Casino San Clemente and met Adam in the Rock Garden for their first look. A tap of the shoulder turned Adam around to see his beautiful wife standing before him. Huge smiles filled both their faces and compliments were exchanged. Afterwards, the bride and groom met the bridesmaids and groomsmen in front of the venue for photos. The bridesmaids were dressed in rust-colored dresses and the groomsmen wore black. The group smiled for the camera and created lasting memories together before lining up for the ceremony.

Guests arrived and found their seats in the Rock Garden. Flowers and greenery intermingled with rust-colored fabric on top of the mantle and matching floral arrangements marked the back of the aisle. Once everyone had arrived, the wedding party made their entrances. In front of all their family and friends, Celina and Adam shared vows, exchanged rings, and sealed the ceremony with a kiss.

The celebration continued on the Patio of the Stars for cocktail hour. Filet and Wild Mushroom Wellingtons and Glazed Pear and Goat Cheese Tarts were tray passed while guests mixed and mingled. The newlyweds posed for some golden hour photos across the street and came back to end cocktail hour with their guests. The couple made their grand entrance and shared their first dance by the fireplace, then invited everyone inside for dinner.

Greenery hung from the ceiling and floral centerpieces topped each table below. Guests found their assigned tables and took a seat just in time for toasts. Family and friends stood and shared their favorite memories of the bride and groom and glasses clinked in the air when the last speech ended. Next, dinner was served. The menu consisted of Santorini Chicken, Tortellini with Creamy Pesto, Red Roasted Garlic Potatoes, Grilled Marinated Vegetables, and Pear and Walnut Salad and was selected by Adam and Celina with help from our event specialist, Brittany. To end on a sweet note, the bride and groom cut into their 2-tiered wedding cake and offered their guests a slice of either red velvet cake with cream cheese filling or white cake with raspberry creme filling for dessert. The evening ended with everyone out on the dance floor showing off their best moves and wishing the newlyweds well.
