Crystal Cove Wedding

I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to blog this beautiful Crystal Cove wedding, but here we are. I have been going past this venue, so many times, wondering if they do weddings. The location is something else, and I always loved the idea of a reception under the stars, by the sea. Fun fact- The Beachcomber Café is right next door and has some of the best breakfast you can find in Orange County. I know it’s a trek, but it’s also so worth it. (You park in the park parking lot across the PCH, and either walk for 10 minutes or grab the $1 shuttle across.) If you do end up there, I recommend you try out the coconut macadamia pancakes. But I digress.

Lee and Dario

Let me introduce you to Lee and Dario, and their intimate little wedding full of love and dancing. If that sounds romantic, it’s because it is. It was a close knit group of people who came together last year, on a very hot day, to celebrate these two saying I do. And who then kicked it up on the dance floor. It helped that they had a fantastic DJ working with them, and music choices reflecting their underlying theme of classic elegance. More than a few songs were Jazz inspired. And well, I have to admit, I am a sucker for Jazz music. My dad has always loved it and it was always played in our house growing up.
I think I have bumbled for long enough though, so without further ado, let me introduce you to Lee and Dario!
