I am from England but planning to get married in Orange County in 2012 or 2013. Does anyone have any recommendations of places that aren't overly priced? I am looking at the San Clemente, San Juan Capistrano, Dana Point, Laguna Beach areas. Failing that we will move up to Big Sur area where we got engaged.
I just got married in Orange County (where I live) last year. What kind of price range are you looking for? What type of event are you looking to have? Indoors or outdoors? I'd be happy to forward on the pictures I took of the places that I looked at as well as the pictures of the place I booked. We looked at several Dana Point parks, Rancho Capistrano (but they were sold and I'm not sure if they are doing weddings now or not), ultimately got married in Chapman Chapel in Orange, CA, and had our reception in Mission Viejo at the Norman P Murray center (we also did e-pics there - it's gorgeous!). Let me know if you want to see pictures of any/all of them. :)
I would like an outdoor wedding ideally. I fell in love with the idea of getting married in Orange County when I saw a wedding happening in San Clemente outdoors. It just seemed so perfect and romantic. It's just beautiful in and around the region.
dodgecpkl - was yours an indoors our outdoors wedding? I know where Mission Viejo is, well I know where the Mall is anyway (most important), but not the center. Would love to see pics.
