San Clemente Historic Cottage Wedding

Jed patiently waited for Katrina in front of the San Clemente Historic Cottage for their first look, and when he finally heard her footsteps, he couldn’t wait to turn around. A tap on the shoulder signaled Jed to spin around and see his stunning bride standing before him. Infectious smiles were shared between Katrina and Jed, and the couple shared personal vows privately before heading over to their wedding party. Sweet words were shared along with a kiss, then the bride and groom posed with their bridesmaids in light pink and groomsmen in light grey. Sweet memories were captured for the bride and groom to forever savor, and everyone lined up for ceremony as guests began arriving.

White flowers and greenery were arranged along both sides of the aisle and a matching floral arch marked the ceremony backdrop. As soon as everyone was in attendance, Jed made his entrance followed by the groomsmen, bridesmaids, and finally, Katrina. In front of all their family and friends, the couple recited vows, exchanged rings, and sealed the ceremony with a kiss.

Assorted Mini Palm Sandwiches and Fried Chicken and Waffle Bites made their rounds on the lawn for cocktail hour while beer was served. Guests mixed and mingled, and the newlyweds snuck away for some photos together as husband and wife. Upon their return, it was time for reception.

Tables were topped with greenery garland and candles and views of the ocean could be seen in the distance. Once everyone was seated, Jed and Katrina made their grand entrance, shared their first dance, and took a seat at their sweetheart table. BBQ Boneless Chicken, Mashed Potatoes, Penne Alla Checca, Panko Crusted Mac n Cheese, Warm Skillet Corn Bread, and BBQ Chopped Salad were served. The menu was selected by the bride and groom with help from our event specialist, Brittany. While everyone enjoyed dinner, friends shared toasts. Glasses clinked in the air when the last speech ended, then the newlyweds cut into their cake and invited their guests to indulge in our All American Dessert Station with a collection of S’more Macarons, Gourmet Rice Krispy Treats, Chocolate Ganache Brownies, Individual Strawberry Shortcakes, and Fresh Baked Chocolate Chip Cookies. The evening ended with lots of dancing and a fun silver steamer send off.
