Here’s some information to help you plan your perfect O.C. beach wedding, especially if you live out of state.
There are dozens of wonderful beach locations in the area but the sites I have listed are some of my favorite for beach weddings. Permits often depend on the number of people attending your wedding and the beach’s location. Call the contact numbers for specific information. My wife, Shari, and I are happy to help you choose the perfect beach or overlook point for your ceremony.
