Monarch Resort Wedding

It was a beautiful day at Monarch Beach Resort in Dana Point, California for Emily and Sean’s wedding. Everything from the venue to the decor was absolutely perfect.

What can be more romantic than getting married on the Southern California coast? Monarch Beach Resort offers several oceanfront venues that fit any style you are looking for. Whether you desire an intimate setting or plan to host 800 guests, this resort has it all. Also, couples have the choice between one of their four different ceremony locations. Emily and Sean exchanged vows in the Botanical Garden under Monarch Beach Resort’s beautifully structured wedding arch. The reception took place at Club 19, which showcases an outdoor terrace with views of the ocean and golf course.

Emily opted for a lovely strapless ball gown wedding dress for the ceremony. Later on, she changed into a red silk dress for the reception. To all our future brides, changing dresses for the reception is such an ultimate game changer! Her white and light pink rose bouquet truly brought the whole look together.

After a photoshoot with the newlyweds across the Monarch Beach Resort’s grounds and the beach, the reception was about to begin. The wedding reception decor was absolutely stunning. Most noteworthy, the tall wedding centerpieces included white roses, light pink roses and everyone’s favorite, hydrangeas. Every place setting had a beautiful clear charger with gold studs around the perimeter. Emily and Sean’s guests were welcomed to their seats with favors, which were personalized jars of honey. Even the sweetheart table had a backdrop with their initials.
