I sent this email out to my family and friends and after many heartwarming responses I have decided to reach out on this website for HELP!!!!
If you are getting this email it means that either I LOVE you, or Adam loves you, or both!!! You are either a family member, friend or client with whom I consider a friend 🙂
I was never one of those girls who planned their wedding out as a child. That said, I am looking forward to discovering what we both want and designing a wedding that will represent Adam and I in our lives together.
Adam is deployed and as I begin to plan our wedding I find it is more difficult that I imagined not having him here! It is hard for me to get motivated. I know that if I had the reception house picked out that I would be more excited to plan the rest of the wedding. This is where you come in!
Challenge: I am trying to find a house for Adam and I to have our wedding reception at next summer (June, July or August). My dream is to rent a house for one week long. Somewhere nice that everyone can relax at and have their own vacation on us! The house will need to be big enough to fit 100 ppl, with 50 people (at least) staying overnight, 20 in beds (at least) and the rest on air mattresses. Those 30 years and under can use the air mattresses, and the wiser ones can have the beds!
Location: California coast within 6 hours of Sacramento, north, south or central. We are going to have the actual ceremony on the coast so it would be great if the location of the house was within 30 miles of the coast.
My hope is by asking for help someone may have an idea I have not thought of, or a place they have heard of that I might have overlooked. I have been finding places on rental sites, but they are very strict on the number of guests. I am praying that maybe someone I send this email to might know a person who has a large house or property they might be willing to rent out for a week. Or, more ideas for me to look into.
I am against camping facilities, that is a little too rustic for me for the wedding purposes! I figure that what we will be spending most of our money on will be this rental house.
Please email this to anyone that you might think could help us in our adventure!!!
Here are a few links of places that I really like to give you an idea of what I am looking for.
Just a few…
Thank you so much!
Adam and Rachel

@QTrach: Have you tried homeaway or Craigslist? Also try searching for B&Bs. This is under the Christian topic, you might have more luck in the destination or local ca area.

@DDbirdofparadise: Thank you! I have been looking at those sites. Also, I did as you suggested and posted this on the destination site. Thank you!
