Ole Hanson served as mayor of Seattle from 1918 to 1919.
Why do I mention this? Because lucky for us he got the heck out of that dreary, rain laden spot and headed to sunny southern California. In 1925 Ole founded the city of San Clemente which continues to a prominent vacation and wedding hot spot.
Love Under The Palms
The rustic Beach Club bearing the name of the city's founder, was the perfect choice for Mandy and David's August wedding. The hardwood floors, alabaster walls and huge rotunda give it a timeless appeal. And the outside open air deck doesn't hurt!
Our newlyweds made their grand entrance while Chris Brown sang "Forever". The couple then immediately started in on their first dance, "So Into You" by Tamia Washington.
After a few toasts and a wonderful meal provided by Creative Cuisine, it was party time! "OMG" by Usher, "Mustang Sally" by The Commitments and "Ladies Night" by Kool & The Gang proved to be crowd favorites.
Hugging It Out!

Old Ole may have missed the coffee from up north but I think he would be proud to know he has played such an important part in so many happy celebrations here.
Here's to another great beginning!
