Sandra & Sergio - Los Verdes Golf Club Wedding

Rancho Palos Verdes is a beautiful neighborhood on the hills and bluffs of the Palos Verdes Peninsula. There is something magical about the views of the Pacific Ocean, most of all Catalina Island. I first became familiar with Rancho Palos Verdes several years ago when I was training for the Ojai Valley Century Ride. My friends and I enjoyed cycling in Rancho Palos Verdes because of its hills, scenery, and bicycle-friendly environment. In addition to being poplular with cyclists, it's a popular wedding location for couples choosing the Los Angeles area for their weddings.

There are numerous Rancho Palos Verdes wedding venues to choose from, including Wayfarers Chapel, La Venta Inn, Terranea Resort, Trump National Golf Club and Los Verdes Golf Club.

Sergio and Sandra selected Los Verdes Golf Club, located at 7000 W. Los Verdes Drive in Rancho Palos Verdes. Their wedding ceremony was outdoors on the Catalina Patio, which overlooks the Los Verdes Golf Course. There are great views of the ocean from the patio, and you can enjoy the cool, ocean breeze. The gazebo on the patio was beautifully decorated with red and white roses by the florist, Daryl Bactate. In addition to the roses on the gazebo, Daryl laid out red and white rose petals along the aisle, creating a romantic pathway leading to the gazebo.

Sergio and Sandra chose a red-and-black-theme for the wedding clothes. The bridesmaids wore beautiful red dresses with black shawls, the groomsmen sported black suits with red ties, and the flower girls wore pretty white and red dresses. Sergio looked handsome in his black suit with white vest and tie. But Sandra stole the show in her beautiful white wedding dress and veil.

About 30 minutes later, the doors of the Vista Ballroom opened and the wedding reception started. The Vista Ballroom is incredibly spacious and can accomodate up to 350 guests. The ballroom has floor-to-ceiling windows for incredible ocean and sunset views.

The wedding guests were treated to delicious food prepared by the catering staff of Los Verdes Golf Club. The beautifully decorated cake was made by the Torrance Bakery.

After dinner, DJ Beni Swift got the guests dancing with upbeat tunes, including oldies, electronic, disco, and popular favorites. The dance floor at the Vista Ballroom was a festive scene.

During the wedding reception, Sandra and Sergio kept to tradition with a garter and bouquet toss. Sergio seemed a little nervous prior to the wedding ceremony and it was nice to see him let loose a bit and enjoy himself during the reception. They both seemed very happy celebrating their wedding day with their families and friends.
