In true California fashion, Casino San Clemente was the perfect place for Annie and Ralph’s boho glam wedding. The outdoor ceremony space is an absolute dream with the ceremony alter covered in rich greenery and large blooms thanks to Peach Florals. The floral arrangements continue on into the lovely reception space. We are loving the seating assignment sign created by Lindsay Shannon Calligraphy and Design and how it reminds us of our smart phones with our favorite apps and emojis! Sweet Emma Lou turned Annie and Ralph’s cake into a piece of art that’s almost too beautiful to eat…almost. Victoria Gold Photography captured all of these glorious details and more!

I wanted a classic/vintage look and that’s why I chose the dress that I did with the red lip. The lace was very defined and showed up nicely against the champagne colored under lay of the dress. The back was very low cut and was my absolute favorite part.
Something that surprised me the day of was the effectiveness of the “first look”. Ralph and I were initially hesitant about this idea because we did not want to spoil seeing each other beforehand but I could not be more happy that we did it! It was the most intimate part of the entire day and was just so special. We each wrote each other a letter in place of reading our own vows at the ceremony. This moment of sitting on the steps reading these word to one another will forever be embedded in my heart as it was just so intimate and beautiful. It was all very privately captured by our photography team and something that I will cherish forever.
The last couple weeks of planning are jam packed with little things that you don’t really think about prior so make sure to leave time for these things to get done by planning all the big stuff ahead of time. A wedding planner is a HUGE help and stress reliever. I mean, come on.. they do this stuff every day!
Our photographer, Victoria, is absolutely amazing. She is fun, loving and professional. She kept us all calm, in good spirits and on schedule. We have so many beautiful photos from our day, I just cant say enough good things about her.
We made a geometrical wooden backdrop to sit behind our sweetheart table to add some definition and detail to a white wall. It turned our beautifully and was decorated with candles and some small floral detail. My family is in construction and is very crafty so we made it out of scrap wood that we had at our office. We also made our table numbers out of wood, acrylic and a Cricut (life saver!). Our welcome sign also was made of a piece of wood and vinyl cut outs from the Cricut.
DJ Griff kept everyone fully entertained and has a passion for his work in DJ and music. I would highly recommend him to anyone and everyone looking for a DJ as he is affordable, very helpful and enthusiastic about his work.
