Tropical Casino Wedding

Ryan and Alyssa met in the Rock Garden at the Casino San Clemente for their first look. A tap on the shoulder signaled Ryan to turn around. Emotion immediately overcame Alyssa when she saw her groom for the first time that day standing before her. The couple shared sweet compliments, then met up with their friends for group pictures before the ceremony.

Guests entered the Rock Garden, signed the bride and groom’s guest book, then took a seat. Tropical flowers decorated the ceremony backdrop and string lights hung above. Once everyone had arrived, the wedding party made their entrances. In front of all their loved ones, Ryan and Alyssa recited vows, exchanged rings, and sealed the ceremony with a kiss as guests cheered from their chairs.

Cocktail hour was hosted on the Patio of the Stars. Drinks were flowing while Thai Vegetable Spring Rolls, Seared Ahi on Wonton Chips, and Crab Cakes were tray passed to hungry guests. While everyone mixed and mingled, the newlyweds posed for photos at the beach, and just as the sun began to set, they joined their guests back at the venue for reception.

Inside, tables were topped with floral filled bud vases and flickering candles. Alyssa and Ryan made their grand entrance, shared their first dance, and took a seat at the sweetheart table. Huli Huli Chicken and Roasted Pork Belly with Jasmine Rice, Stir Fry Vegetables, and Mixed Green Salad was served. The menu was selected by the bride and groom with help from our event specialist, Brittany. While everyone enjoyed dinner, friends and family shared toasts. After dinner, everyone headed out to the dance floor. The evening ended with guests snacking on our Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies and showing off their best dance moves.
