personally I like outdoor wedding, especially in summer time.  I think it looks pretty in phtoos if you do it in a park!

Both parks look gorgeous.  If I were you I would switch, since it’s a small ceremony 🙂

I’d say do the park! We were going to go with a courthouse wedding too, but decided to do it at a park instead. The cost for officiant was the same no matter where we got married (including the courthouse) so we thought some pretty scenery and somewhere we both loved would make it more special. And since ours is a GINOURMOUS park, we don’t have to pay for a permit, making the location cost $0.

Either of the parks you posted are beautiful and would make for a lovely backdrop. Your dress is gorgeous!

Assuming you have a back-up bad weather plan, I’d vote for the outdoor park.  It’s beautiful!

I love the park idea. We had the same debate. We were thinking about the courthouse, but I really wanted an officiant not a city clerk for spiritual reasons. We ended up with neither because our wedding got a little bit bigger and we were pushing it to get a permit in time (we planned everything in a month) so we decided to move the whole thing to his parents’ house. I love both parks, but especially the rose garden. And your dress is beautiful. It took me a minute to even realize they were the same. Whatever you do, have fun and it will be beautiful.

I don’t know where in California you are planning to get married. However, I know that in Oregon the August weather is beautiful. I love park/outdoor weddings.

Your in SJ! Haha, that’s where we’re from! The rose garden looks pretty but I’ve never been there! Almaden Lake park is nice too! My husband and I got married in South Lake Tahoe which was really beautiful and we just ended up having our honeymoon out there too! You can also look into elopement packages as well too! Are you planning on having a reception or anything?
