Dune Lakes is a Spectacular Beach Wedding Venue in Arroyo Grande, CA

Friday, July 23rd, 2010

Have you seen the gorgeous new venue called Dune Lakes yet? All Traditions is proud to be selected as the exclusive wedding coordinator to Dune Lakes. It is a spectacular event site located above the southern dunes of San Luis Obispo County. While home to many movie and commercial photo shoot locations, Dune Lakes has never been open to the public for weddings. I will be coordinating the first wedding there next month for my assistant Jaleen and her wonderful fiance Russell…and am very excited! There are over 10,000 secluded acres with a gated, secure entry through California’s largest private eucaluptus grove. Our photographer is going to be wowed by the 360 degree panoramic views over the Pacific, the dunes and wine-country. We are truly honored by this selection and know you will fall in love with this site! If you want to find out more about this site, give me a call!

I have been thinking about starting a blog lately. Like anything, the thinking was the hardest part.  I was thinking and thinking….and then I worked on the coolest wedding so all of a sudden I just had to jump in with both feet and get photos from this wonderful wedding posted!  I’m so lucky to have had the opportunity to be a part of Kacy & Kirk’s wedding as it gave me the motivation to get blogging!

I hope you enjoy the photos from this wedding and that you’ll come back and visit this new blog often!

We rented such beautiful wood furniture, that a runner was all that was necessary for the linens.

Guests dined on paella, which was made at the barn and brought to their tables in cast iron skillets. There was even a bonfire, complete with s’mores!We provided guest shuttles to make sure everyone got to the after party and back to their hotels safe and sound.  This wedding was so much fun…congratulations to the happy couple!
