Spanish Style San Clemente Wedding at Casa Romantica

May 19, 2018 | juliette

Brianna and Charlie brought all the tropical boho vibes to Casa Romantica, and we simply can’t get enough! The Spanish style venue was the perfect backdrop for the chic yet laid-back design that Weddings by Cortney Helaine created, which featured tropical greenery and white roses arranged by Little Hill Floral Designs and a DIY macrame sweetheart table backdrop that dreams are made of. To add that classic wedding feel, the couple dressed to the nines, with Brianna rocking a trumpet-silhouette lace Ines Di Santo gown and loose curls and Charlie wearing a classic suit and bowtie. Between the sunset ceremony looking over the ocean and the dreamy atmosphere of the courtyard reception, this wedding was romantic to its core and photographer Chase Sevey captured it all beautifully.

The Wedding:

Casa Romantica, San Clemente, California

When we began planning, we knew we wanted a relaxed vibe that still held the traditional wedding elements. I’ve always loved Spanish style homes, the artsy beach town of San Clemente, and knew we wanted lots of plants and greenery. When we looked at the venue and the boutique hotels within walking distance, we instantly knew this was our venue. We used lots of palms and ferns mixed with white roses, neutral bridesmaid dresses, navy tuxes, peacock rattan chairs, and the 10′ hanging macrame.

Our first look was the most memorable part of the day. We went back and forth if we wanted to do a first look or save the moment for the aisle, but due to the time change and lighting purposes, we decided to do the first look. It surprised me how special the moment was and we loved seeing each other alone for a private moment before going into the ceremony with all eyes on us.

  1. Hi! Where did your mom get her dress? I love it and my mom would love something similar!

  2. I was just curious to know what time of year this wedding took place? We are possibly thinking of using this venue as well for a late March wedding but it might be too cold, what are your thoughts?
