Let’s be real, when it comes to awesome weddings the only rule is that there are none. So when these California cuties set out to plan their San Clemente nuptials, the first and foremost priority was fun. Layered with personality and sprinkled with spunk, the wedding that resulted was the kind we so wish we could attend. (Because any wedding with a main course taco-bar and an impromptu slushie stop is A-okay in my book!) Kick back and get comfy in the full gallery of Richelle Dante’s photos right here!

From Richelle Dante Photoraphy…Alicia and Jason wanted their wedding to be an intimate setting that reflected some of their favorite things. They loved the simplicity and rustic vibe of the desert. So they chose to incorporate cactus and succulents into their centerpieces and cocktail arrangements. They love Mexican food and decided on a taco bar for their main course. For favors, they handed out personalized decks of cards since they enjoy playing card games. They opted for a caricature artist instead of a photobooth – yet another detail that truly reflected their fun personalities. Other reception details included prediction cards, burlap, handwritten chalkboard signs and a fabulous dessert bar. They also have a love for Slushies. Conveniently, there was a 7-11 close by which was perfect for a quick photo opt after the ceremony. One of the most important things to Alicia & Jason throughout the planning process was that they wanted their guests to have fun. Mission accomplished. Not only did the guests party hard but you could tell that every single one of them felt honored to share their day with them.
