Tropical Floral Print Casino San Clemente Wedding

Clare slipped into her white wedding dress and met Addis outside of the Casino San Clemente for their first look. A tap on the shoulder tuned him around and smiles immediately filled both their faces. The couple shared loving compliments and posed together before joining their wedding party for group pictures. The bridesmaids were dressed in sage and rust dresses and the groomsmen wore shades of tan. The group posed for photos, then lined up for the ceremony.

Guests filed into the Rock Garden where peachy florals decorated the ceremony space. Once everyone had arrived, Clare and Addis made their walks down the aisle. In front of their closest friends and loving family, the couple recited vows, exchanged rings, and sealed the ceremony with a kiss. Guests cheered as the newlyweds exited the ceremony and headed for cocktail hour.

Tray passed Filet and Wild Mushroom Wellingtons, Crab Cakes, and Caprese Skewers with Pesto greeted guests on the Patio of the Stars and a stationary Antipasto Tray with salami, prosciutto de parma, mortadella, capicola, fontina, mozzarella, pepperoncinis, artichokes, grilled red peppers, and kalamata olives and Vegetable Tray with carrots, jicama, celery, bell peppers, grape tomatoes, and buttermilk ranch was also available to snack on. While guests mixed and mingled, the newlyweds headed down to the beach for golden hour photos. Addis and Clare posed together as husband and wife while waves gently crashed along the shore. Upon their return to the Casino, it was time for reception.

Tables were topped with tropical details and wicker lights hung above. Clare and Addis made their grand entrance, shared their first dance, and took a seat at their sweetheart table. Tri-Tip Carvery, Santorini Chicken, Vegetarian Rotolo Bolzano, Italian Green Beans with Pancetta was served. The menu was selected by the bride and groom with help from our event specialist, Brittany. While guests enjoyed dinner, family and friends stood to share toasts. Glasses clinked in the air, then dessert was unveiled, and the couple cut into their lemon wedding cake with lemon creme filling. After taking a bite of cake, Clare and Addis invited their guests to indulge in our Gourmet Dessert Station with a collection of Mini Lemon Tarts, Berry Champagne Macarons, Raspberry Chocolate Decadence Cakes, Mini Carrot Cupcakes, and Caramel Creme with Lemon Curd and Praline Crisp Dessert Shots. The remainder of the evening was spent out on the dance floor dancing and singing to the music.
