San Luis locals Shauna and Rob said they knew that The Casitas Estate was their place right when they drove up to the top of the drive (even before they saw the views!) They’d done many searches for Central Coast wedding venues and when they saw images of the Spanish hacienda pop up, they said they were sold. They loved the Talavera tiles that are laced throughout the interior and exterior so much that they incorporated these touches into their unique wedding design. Super handy future hubby Rob created tile trays to sit under each table’s centerpieces and framed a larger grouping of Talavera that became their seating chart—with each guest and their table number etched into the stunning mosaic. Etsy would be proud!
Their guests loved being able to enjoy a weekend of fun billed as ‘a SLO destination wedding’. Having full access to the private estate wedding location this past October to play bocce, swim and relax was a huge plus. They also loved having the ceremony, cocktail hour by the pool, and reception on the back lawn—all in one place but on different locations around the estate. And, having the Casitas to themselves was important to both Shauna and Rob, allowing them to spend quality time with family and friends without feeling rushed. We think you’ll agree as you check out the great images captured here by Matt Wiens of Heyday Photography, also a local here in San Luis Obispo.
