My vote is California, but only if your SO would also be happy with it. Also it will be important that your mom/someone else close in CA is ready to help with a lot of the planning. I live on the opposite coast of where I’ll be getting married but my parents (who are paying for and equally invested in the wedding) live there and have done a LOT of work in terms of scoping out venues, meeting with vendors, etc.

elliottandhugo:  I was/am in the exact same situation. My now Fiance had been together for years met and lived in MD for years and then moved to California less than a year before we got engaged. CA is a huge pull because it’s so gorgeous and would be easier for us personally to plan and get there.In the end, we decided to have it in Maryland because that’s where most of our guest list lives and it was more imporant to make it accessible and have everyone attend rather than have the perfect location.

If I were you, I’d find a California location and caterer right now and do the rest of the planning from NC. No harm in doing a little ‘presearch’:)
