Casa Romantica Wedding: Michelle & Jake

Casa Romantica Wedding

With one look, it’s pretty easy to understand why Casa Romantica Cultural Centers & Gardens in San Clemente is one of my favorite venues! Steeped in history and classic spanish charm, simple and rustic weddings pair very easily with this space.  This gorgeous bluff-top estate shines on its own!  I loved working with this sweet couple, Michelle & Jake.  Their big day was filled with beauty, loving family & friends, and some of my favorite wedding vendors in Orange County!

The couple kept things refreshingly simple, yet included a few thoughtful details and personal touches to lend an intimate feel to the affair.  The bride spent the morning surrounded by best friends, mimosas flowing, donning adorable robes! Such a great idea: it won’t mess up freshly done hair and makeup, and makes a bridesmaids gift that they might actually wear again!

Jeff Tackett with OC Wedding Officiants is an absolute pro.  San Clemente weather, known to be rather spectacular, cooperated, offering a comfortable cloud cover and a colorful sunset. The Beach Flower celebrated peony season with this beautiful bouquet!

After the ceremony, guests were treated to a beautiful meal in the courtyard, catered by Iva Lee’s Restaurant. Iva Lee’s (one of the preferred vendors at Casa Romantica) offers upscale cajun cuisine.  Guests dined on bourbon braised short ribs, seared salmon, creamy risotto and herbed vegetables.

Inside the Casa Romantica estate, Orange Box Photo Booth captured guests getting wacky.  Outside, the couple offered a cigar bar down on the point, while Kevin Miso kept the crowd dancing. He played guitar for the ceremony, offered some acoustic cocktail hour entertainment, and DJ’d the dace party at the reception!
