When thinking of California, one of the first words that comes to mind is 'sunshine.' For this very reason, i've been fortunate to get more and more inquiries from out of state brides wanting to have a destination wedding in sunny, California! There seems to be a lot of interest in the well known areas of California: Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego and Orange County, which are all terrific places in their own right but one absolutely gorgeous region that oftentimes gets overlooked is: the breathtaking sites of the central coast. California's central coast is comprised of the following areas: San Luis Obispo County, Santa Barbara County, Monterey County, Santa Cruz County and Ventura County. If you ever want to experience a mix of some of the best beach towns, lush landscapes and picturesque vineyards California has to offer, the central coast is the perfect place for a romantic getaway and magical wedding without all the hustle and bustle. The only issue I can foresee is while exploring these refreshing coastal towns and soaking in central cali's beauty and sunshine, it may be hard to narrow down which venue to host your shindig at!
