so my wedding is pretty small, my parents, his 2 sisters, brother and his wife. I wanted to originally do a courthouse wedding but i started thinking of a park wedding, it would look nice right?
Here are two places im considering and we MIGHT do it in August, we would just have an officiant.
This is the rose garden basically its a big area with roses all over the place and they have this beautiful fountain.
and this is a park but it has a small amphitheater and a lake as a backdrop
soo i dont know if i should stick to my courthouse wedding or switch it up since its just a small ceremony.
heres my dress also
ideas, advice is greatly appreciated

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?

well august is pretty nice down here, i had originally planned for october but if we do go this route itd be in august.
Spanisheyes714 haha nice! well my HS graduation was at the rose garden and its pretty nice, i had thought about lake tahoe but our fams wont want to travel up there so its kind of out of the question, eventhough its small they still want to be there hehe.
Now all i have to do is convince Fiance lol
