If you decide on California, take a look into Balboa Park in San Diego. If I were going to get married here, that’s where I would do it. The architecture is gorgeous (back from the World’s Fair at the beginning of the 1900s). And it is just a couple-hour train ride from downtown San Diego to Anaheim for Disneyland. If you’re partial to beaches, just do some web searches, there are plenty of companies that make that happen for you.

Disney World is much better than Disneyland.  Wink

There are plenty of companies that do beach weddings for the couple with just an officiant and a photographer.  Google Florida beach wedding package and you should find a bunch.  New Smyrna Beach and Cocoa Beach are the closest to Orlando but Clearwater near Tampa has the prettier beaches (check out Sand Key Park, on the West coast of FL is where you will have the sunset in the background of your pictures.)

February and April are great times to come to Florida.  February is hit or miss as far as whether it will be cold but that means the beaches will be practically empty and it’s one of the better times of the year to visit Disney World.  I would say that April has better weather

I actually prefer Disneyland over Disneyworld, but that’s just me.  My husband and I got married near a light house in Long Beach, CA last year and did an “elopement” type of wedding.  All we did was hire an officiant to be there on a specific date and time.  I scoped it out a little earlier so I could pick a spot I really liked and just told the officiant where I was thiking of.  It’s near an Aquarium and the Queen Mary.  Also, Disneyland is not that far of a drive from there.  I’ve enclosed some pics from a thread I created a couple of weeks ago.
