Fall Color Palette Wedding

With help from her mother, Jezz buttoned up the back of her wedding gown inside the bridal suite at the Casino San Clemente. Her dress was a boho style covered in lace with matching shoes and earrings. Each of her bridesmaids wore different styles of deep red dresses that matched their bouquets of rust, maroon, and peach flowers. Once they were all ready, the girls made their way to the Rock Garden to meet the groom and groomsmen for photos before guests arrived. Angel suited up in a white blazer to stand out from his groomsmen who were dressed in black and wore dark red bow ties. Their boutonnieres matched the girl’s bouquets and fall-inspired wedding decor that had just been set up for the special day.

Guests arrived and signed Jezz and Angel’s vinyl that sat in a record player as the guest book, then took a seat outside for the ceremony. Arrangements of greenery and fall-colored flowers sat stop the candle-decorated mantle and lined the aisle. Soft music cued up and everyone stood as Jezz and her father made their entrance. The bride and groom read handwritten vows and tried their best to not shed a tear. Rings were exchanged and the couple was pronounced husband and wife before sharing a kiss in front of friends and family. Everyone cheered as the newlyweds joyfully exited the ceremony and made their way into cocktail hour.

A mariachi band played lively music as guests snacked on Chicken Jalapeno Empanadas with avocado crema, Chips, Salsa and Guacamole, and Polotè with creamy chipotle sauce. Cocktail tables were full and a boho-inspired lounge comfortably fit additional guests who wanted to get off their feet for a bit. The bride and groom snuck away for a few photos together as husband and wife, then joined the party for a few drinks before dinner. A black and white seating chart decorated in fresh florals led guests inside to their assigned tables.

Inside, vines decorated the ceiling and tall table arrangements added pops of color to the space. Golden accents on the table tied in with the sweetheart table backdrop and candlesticks added a feeling of romance to the already romantic room. The bride and groom made their grand entrance into their first dance and guests watched on with heart eyes. Toasts were made before dinner that had everyone laughing and raising a glass. Next, each table was excused to fill their plates with Mexican Caesar Salad, Tequila Lime Chicken, Slow Roasted Carnitas, Pasilla Rice, and Sweet Corn Cake. The bride and groom selected our Latin Menu with the help of our Event Specialist, Patti. The food was so delicious that many guests went back for seconds. After dinner, Jezz and Angel did their bouquet and garter toss before cutting into a 3-tiered cake. Chocolate cake with cappuccino creme filling, white cake with strawberry creme filling, and carrot cake with cream cheese filling made up their decadent wedding cake that was shared with guests. Even more sweets were unveiled at the Latin Dessert Station including Tres Leches Cakes, Mini Caramel Custard Flan, Coconut Macarons, Dulce de Leche Chocolate Tarts and Mexican Wedding Cookies. On a sugar high, everyone made their way to the dance floor. The bride and groom were at the center of all the dancing with family and friends surrounding them in celebration. If dancing was not really your style, a cigar bar was posted up just outside for anyone to enjoy, and if you worked up an appetite on the dance floor, a late night snack of Carne Asada Tacos was available! Full on food and fun, the evening ended with a send off of the newlyweds that was full of cheering and well wishes.
