Shannon married Terry on August 25th, 2012 at The Hotel Del Coronado. This was a true beach wedding. Not only was the ceremony on the beach at the Del, but the cocktail hour, and the reception was on the sand as well. Shannon and Terry wanted to make sure that their guests really got their toes in the sand, and they all did! This was a California beach wedding, if ever I saw one.
The gorgeous beach setting at the Hotel Del, made it so that guests had views of the ocean through the entire wedding day. Great snacks, and drinks were provided by the Del for the wedding guests to enjoy, before, during and even after the wedding a late night cream puff snack was there. Pops of bright oranges, pinks and creams created a beautiful contrast to the soft beachy colors that surrounded them. Amazing banquet style tables were covered in wooden centerpieces, with floral accents. Even their canopy had soft whimsical draping, that flowed in the wind. It was just the right touch for this dream beach wedding.
Guests danced the entire night, and even created some buzz that caused guests of the hotel to stop and watch.This was a great wedding to get to experience. Shannon and Terry had such an amazing wedding, and I was honored to be part of their wedding experience.
