I revisited one of my absolute favorite locations in Orange County, CA for weddings a couple of weeks ago. Jennifer and James planned an elegant wedding at the Sunset Terrace, with reception at the adjacent Plaza Room at the Ritz Carlton in Dana Point. I like this location for several reasons: there is a gorgeous view of the Pacific Ocean, the cocktail and reception area are literally steps from the ceremony, the Plaza Room is intimate yet has doors that open to a balcony view of the ocean, and of course it’s the Ritz Carlton. For a smaller wedding it doesn’t get much better than this, really.
Lisa Simpson and Wedding Celebrations was the event planner for this elegant event. Naturally Crandallphoto provided photography, Hair and makeup by Design Visage, Florals by Cina, and my friend Jeff Holmes at Moondance Mobile Music was the superb DJ.
