A Small California Town with Big Dreams - Californian Beachside Weddings

Like sunshine and surfing? Planning a wedding in Orange County, California? Look no further than the gorgeous town of San Clemente. Sandwiched between the cosmopolitan tourist hubs of Los Angles and San Diego lies the small seaside city of San Clemente with its 2.5 mile, palm-fringed beach. A hidden gem with some of the most consistent surf-breaks in California, it is becoming a popular place in which to get married for the surf-hungry, with wedding venues such as Casa Romantic, which even boasts a view over the famous Pier, making the most of the superb coastal location. What could be better than a morning surf followed by wedding celebrations on the beach, making the most of that gorgeous golden hour? San Clemente’s strong historical tie with surfing has long influenced the town’s culture and it used to host some of the most major surf competitions before they moved up to World-famous Champ, Kelly Slater’s Surf Ranch in central San Joaquin Valley. Anyway. enough of the chat and on with the pictures - sunset from the Pier:
