Nipomo Wedding That's Beautiful and Affordable

Photos from a Central California coast wedding held in the spring


Nevermind the slight mist and clouds that could have dampened the spirits of a Celtic wedding in Nipomo, Californiaa! When Jon and Angela said their vows the weather held back and gave them the most perfect Central Coast day a bride and groom could ever desire.  The sun wasn't shining till later, but the overcast weather made for better outdoor pictures, and the guests found the climate ideal for squint-free dining, dancing and socializing.

With the entire house rented at the Kaleidoscope Inn, the 200 guests who came from L.A., Burbank, San Diego, Orange County, Las Vegas, Ventura, Napa and San Francisco, found nearby, affordable accommodations in Santa Maria.  Kaleidoscope Inn is set in residential neighborhood and can be rented in its entirety for events ranging from weddings to reunions. 


It contains lovely outdoor grounds with several gazebos, covered patio decking and lush lawns that are well kept for party-goers.


The wedding itself was as good as they come.  Angela, the bride, works for a flower growing company and obtained the finest Calla Lillies from them, along with locally grown snap dragons in rich hues of yellow, red and orange. Jon is a high school teacher in Santa Maria. An associate performed a Celtic ceremony for the Italian couple. Layers of rope with knots were placed atop the couples hands and wrists to symbolize the bonds they share.


From the march down the lawn with Celtic music, to the bride's mother and her merry troupe performing a Renaissance dance in costume for the couple, the day was filled with surprises and happiness. Nipomo is located approx. 10 minutes from the beach and offers the gentle climate and cool ocean breezes perfect for weddings.
