April 08, 2014 - Catalina View Gardens Wedding

Set on a hilltop in Palos Verdes and overlooking the Pacific Ocean and Catalina Island, this venue has one of our favorite views in SoCal! We were honored to have been a part of an incredible wedding at Catalina View Gardens coordinated by Constance Curtis. The couple wanted a simple dinner that included Mexican flavors with an upscale California twist. The bride is gluten free so that was a must as well! The Urban Palate menu included mini tequila chicken tacos, a beautiful romaine and grilled poblano salad and a lime mezcal grilled chicken for dinner. Bold flavors and beautiful colors proved gluten free doesn’t have to be boring. Gorgeous images below shot by Sera Lindsey.
