Imagine, if you will, your very special wedding day beginning in nature’s paradise: Laguna Beach, California. Picture your wedding on the expansive lawn that stretches to the bluff top, where the two of you are framed by panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean and lush gardens.

“To love and be loved is to feel the sun from both sides.” -David Viscott

Your guests have been anticipating this moment since they arrived at your private valet entrance. They pass a striking sculpture, Peace Scape, a bronze tree blooming with doves designed by Laguna Beach artist Terry Thornsley, and descend a staircase to the Courtyard.

Amidst the glow of flickering gas lamps and the lullaby of a tranquil fountain, your guests are escorted along garden paths to the oceanfront lawn. Gentle ocean breezes mingle the soft scent of sea spray with that of fragrant blossoms, the flowers that you selected especially for this day.

You make your entrance during that magical hour before sunset, kissed by the sun’s lingering rays as your favorite music plays. Your once-in-a-lifetime outdoor wedding ceremony unfolds beautifully.

Now as husband and wife, you joyfully greet your guests. You sip chilled cocktails, sample delicious hors d’oeuvres and stroll through the garden. You enjoy a myriad of private moments and opportunities for photographs. Your guests marvel at the beauty of the day and savor a selection of your favorite sushi or imported cheeses hand-selected by our fromagier.

As the sun sets, chimes sound and you and your guests are escorted into an elegant ballroom reminiscent of a private oceanfront estate. Here the celebration continues, at convivial tables set with the finest china and stemware.

Dramatic lighting washes the walls and highlights centerpieces of your favorite flowers, while soft candlelight dances over the crisp table linens. A culinary feast for the senses is about to begin.
