I’ve been both places, though  can’t say how well I know them for a wedding.  In general, the areas have completely different feels.  When I was at Catalina (for my honeymoon) it seemed really relaxed and laid back.  The island is ridiculously beatiful!  Miami beach is pretty, and definitely my favorite city by far.  But it definitely has the city feel to it, busy, a lot going on, and kinda dirty.  

It also depends on time of year.  Florida is warmer, but gets really hot and humid and rainy between May and November.  California is warm too, though not as warm as Florida, and no humidity, but it can be overcast May -June, so if you’re going then it won’t be as pretty outside. 

My vote would probably go with Catalina, but its up to you.

I live in Miami beach. I may be able to help you with any questions you may have :). I am also a hair stylist and have done many weddings at different hotels/venues and could give some info on that!!  I have never been to Catalina though
