As the weather warms up, a beach wedding sounds ideal. Picture the rolling cliffs and the crystal blue ocean as the backdrop to your ceremony, we can’t think of a prettier setting. Jacquie and Greg could not agree more. They chose a San Clemente cliff side camp spot for their ceremony and headed over to the Historic Cottage San Clemente for their ceremony.
Most all the details were crafted by Jacquie. Umbrellas & fans for the ceremony, mason jars for the guests’ cocktails, succulent filled window panes, burlap banners, wine barrels as cocktail tables and wooden signs directing guests to each location. She did it all with a little help from event planner Kimberly Conners. You can see all the pretty details up close in the full gallery. Photographed by Matthew Morgan Photography.
From Kimberly Conners:
Jacquie and I first met at the beginning of the year where she told me about her wedding and all the ideas she had. When she told me she was going to get married at a camp site overlooking the ocean, I was thrilled! I loved the idea. This also meant that a lot of work was to be done to transform it into a ceremony site, but I was totally up for the challenge.
There’s nothing I love more than a creative bride. Jacquie worked so hard on this wedding and all of the details that went into it. Some of those details included umbrellas & fans for the ceremony, mason jars for the guests’ cocktails, succulent filled window panes, burlap banners, wine barrels as cocktail tables and wooden signs directing guests to each location.
The weather that day was perfect for an outdoor ceremony and the ocean provided the perfect backdrop for their vows. After the ceremony, guests followed the path to the Historic Cottage where the reception was held. Everything was amazing – down to the last detail!
Jacquie is so lucky to be surrounded by such wonderful friends and family. One of her best friends, Missy, provided many of the antique jars and succulent arrangements for the wedding. They were stunning! The rest of the beautiful flowers along with the bouquets were provided by my favorite florist, Aly with the Vine’s Leaf. Jacquie also had several friends help out during the reception by making yummy desserts for the sweets table, helping with the set-up and helping to clean up at the end of the night. It was so awesome to see everyone work together to make Jacquie and Greg’s day perfect! It was such a beautiful wedding to be a part of.
