A Casa Romantica Wedding

Scott traveled the world to find his perfect match and he found her while deployed with the US Military in Japan. They were smitten at first sight. After having a head over heels, madly in love, romantic few yeas together in Japan, Eri moved to California to follow Scott as he started his civilian life as a doctor. 

Scott and Eri knew it was a forever love and their wedding was held in beautiful coastal Southern California at Casa Romantica. They designed their day around all their favorite things and all the cultural heritage that followed both of their families. Eri even made paper crane strands to welcome guests into the dining area and help them find their seats, certainly one of our favorite meal indicators so far has been her beautiful paper cranes! 

Beautiful silk fans were handed out during the ceremony for guests to fan or shade themselves while watching their union. There wasn’t a dry eye in the house after Eri & Scott shared their vows, all their favorite memories, and promised to love, honor and cherish each other, till death do they part. 

After the ceremony, guests enjoyed cocktails and appetizers overlooking a beautiful sunset as they made their way to the atrium for dinner and the couple’s first dance as husband and wife. The two danced the night away and shared love and laughter with all they hold dear. It was truly a night to remember.
