I would stick with the original plan and have it in your FSIL’s backyard – since both options are free, and you already have the church booked in your hometown, it seems like the hassle-free way to go!

Congratulations and very nice.

I would move the ceremony to where the reception will be, if at all possible.

45 minutes is not too long/ far away and that venue is beautiful. I would do it!

Could you rent a big bus to take everyone in one fell swoop? A friend of mine did that, and it turned out to be a lot of fun! 🙂

Then afterward, the bus took everyone back… plus it shuttled back and forth a few times, for people who wanted to leave earlier.

Wow, I think the theatre is great! Even if both of your venues are free, maybe the theatre can be more convenient in some ways (I’m thinking about bathrooms?). If I were your guest I wouldn’t mind driving 45 min to spend time in such a cool place.

I actually don’t feel like the San Bernadino/ Pomona drive is THAT bad. It’s not a long 45 minutes…. IMO.

The theatre looks lovely.  Most people won’t mind driving for 45 minutes and on top of that, it’s your day and therefore, you should go with what you want to experience and have as memories.  The other option, would be to move your ceremony to a closer location, which might be doable and not too expensive.

I would stick with your first option. You don’t want to inconvenience your guests too much.
