A Beautiful Beachside Wedding at San Clemente Shore by Wedgewood Weddings

Updated: Jun 5


Southern California has some of the best beaches in the world! If you ever want to get married near the beach, San Clemente Shore by Wedgewood Weddings is a wonderful venue to exchange your "I do's". It offers dazzling coastal views, a beautiful reception ballroom, and much more. Couples also love how nearby the beach and downtown area of San Clemente are. This stunning location can be a dream come true for both couples seeking a destination wedding and even local romantics. Now, let's take a look at the beautiful wedding memories of Kirsten & Diego!

Getting Ready

The beautiful couple, Kirsten & Diego began their special day by getting ready at the Hampton Inn & Suites. It was a face-paced day with much to be done, but the weather was perfect, just like the rest of the day. Also, check out the gorgeous Jade buttons on Kirsten's dress to celebrate her Chinese heritage. As a multicultural wedding, there were a handful of different traditions to honor the couple's diverse backgrounds.

Here comes the Bride...

The stunning Bride is being walked down the aisle as the Groom tries to hold back tears of joy. This was such a wholesome and special moment. You can feel the deep love between these two.

The Wedding Ceremony

Marriage is a sacred bond between two souls, two families, and in this case, two diverse backgrounds. What a beautiful ceremony filled with love and happiness. This was an incredible wedding to capture and the rest of the pictures are even more amazing! San Clemente Shore by Wedgewood Weddings is truly a magnificent place to say your "I do's".

Romantics on the Beach

After a stunning ceremony, Kirsten and Diego had their first photo shoot as newlyweds! The beach was only a short walk across train tracks and the pictures turned out amazing. Each and every photo beautifully reflects the abundant happiness from both the couple and their beloved wedding party. The golden hour lighting and exquisite beach background were the cherry on top to this perfect day. Golden hour is my favorite ever!

A Super Fun Wedding Party Photo Shoot!

One of the best parts about getting married is being surrounded by the love and support of all your friends and family. It's amazing how the love between 2 lovers can unite so many people. Kirsten & Diego had the ultimate hype team to give them all the best vibes on their special wedding day. As you can see from these photos, everyone was filled with love and joy. A great little break before the party starts!

The Reception

Now it's time to party! 🎉 The happy couple made their grand entrance as newly weds and were greeted with so much love and cheer from their family and friends. The decor was simple and beautiful. Just like the ceremony, the reception at Wedgewood's Golf Course was a terrific spot to celebrate the newly weds. What a memorable night!

The First Dance

Kirsten & Diego shared the most romantic first dance as newly weds. Everything about it from the music, to the choreography, to the way they gazed into each others' eyes - was a dream. You can just feel the love these two have for one another through these pictures. Plus, the sparking lights grand finale was magnificent and spectacular! ✨
