This looks great!  The only thing I would change a bit is the wording of the directions to the church – the first couple of lines were a bit confusing the first time I read it.  Maybe:

Take the 15 south

Exit left onto Rancho California Rd

Right on Ynez Rd

… etc.

That’s great!  I love the little pictures and it looks much more useful and personalized than a google map.  I think your guests will really appreciate it!

I just have a couple of tiny suggestions.  In a few places the first letters of street names are lowercase–I’d capitalize the first letter of each word (Rancho California Rd.).   And add periods to “St.” and “Rd.”  (you’ve got them in most places, but not in all of them).  Oh, and add a period after “St” in “St. Catherine of Alexandria.”  And finally, delete the extra period after “C St.” in the last line of the directions to the ceremony. 

It’s funny, I knew you were from Southern California right away–I moved here a couple years ago, and I’ve never lived anywhere else where people use “the” in front of freeway numbers.  I guess it’s another one of those fun local words ๐Ÿ™‚  Anyway–great job!

Ha ha, yes I used to make fun of my FI for saying the “the” all the time (neither of us are native Southern Californians, so I tell him he’s being a poser).  But now I’ve been here long enough that I catch myself doing it all the time too.  D’oh!  ๐Ÿ™‚

Anyway, great job again!
