I knew I wanted to elope to CA, the issue was whereâ€¦ I started hunting around plus looking at major citiesâ€¦ While everywhere in CA will marry you, the locations all differ quite a bitâ€¦ Since CA is such a broad state, you can get a variety of backdrops in your photos! Northern CA has beautiful sequoia plus redwood trees; Mid CA is Yosemite National Park with gorgeous trees, water plus landscapesâ€¦ Further South you are getting beaches plus gorgeous buildings.
I decided I wanted a beachy backdrop plus started looking at locales along the coast.
Monterey looked beautiful but too small for my taste. I also wanted to have guests at my wedding plus it looked love the small sites could not accommodate, that is how I landed on Santa Barbara. That locale literally has everything you can want. It is big plus city-like separate from being Los Angeles. It has gorgeous beaches plus quaint shops separate from being a little love Carmel by the Sea. Santa Barbara has all kinds of wedding packages too. I can get married in gardens, on rooftops overlooking the orange stone roofs, along the American Rivera, or right in the city. I am not sure what wedding package to get, there are so several to choose from! My family is pretty stoked because the area is gorgeous. My brother in unique is gleeful to check out the recreational cannabis dispensaries while he is there. I will most likely book hotels in the city area where getting cannabis will be easy. It is love I am telling my brother to get high at my wedding.
