Reasons to Get Married on the Central Coast

By January 5, 2015 6. Local Hot Spots, Blog

Thinking about having a wedding in San Luis Obispo County?  Here are 5 reasons to get  married on the Central Coast.

There are a variety of places to tie the knot
You can get married with your toes in the water, in a Spanish style garden, or in a field of grape vines. Choose the beautiful, blue Pacific Ocean as your backdrop. There are a few spots right on the sandy beach, on the cliffs of Shell Beach, or in an oceanfront gazebo. The garden settings make for pretty pictures with historical buildings in the back and lush gardens around you. There is also groves of eucalyptus trees surrounded by green country clubs. Or maybe a tranquil zen garden to host your small wedding. The Central Coast also has some amazing wineries for a wedding ceremony or reception.

There are a lot of activities for your guests
If the Central Coast would be a destination wedding or weekend getaway, there are plenty of activities to keep them busy. Wineries are in all directions – head to Paso Robles, Edna Valley in San Luis Obispo, or Los Olivos. Go shopping in quaint little local stores in Orcutt, downtown San Luis Obispo, or downtown Paso Robles. In the mood for some outdoor hikes? Montana de Oro is a beautiful spot right on the ocean for a nice easy hike or a more advanced one into the coastal mountains. San Luis also has Bishop’s Peak for a longer, more strenuous hike. Or plan a trip up north to grab lunch in Cambria before heading up to Hearst Castle and then going to see the elephant seals.

We do all the work
Coastal California Weddings provides couples with budget friendly options for their wedding ceremony or reception. Our wedding ceremonies are all inclusive so we provide everything you need to get married. This is great for couples since they can leave the planning to us and have a stress free wedding day. Our trained minister gets to know each couple and personalizes the ceremony. Pictures are taken by our professional photographer who documents all parts of the ceremony and pays attention to each detail. Our florist hand crafts each bouquet with flowers reflecting the needs of the couple. Additional details like decorations, hotels, and transportation can be arranged. Plus, we also have all inclusive reception packages  for small groups.

The weather is perfect!
We have perfect weather all year round. Temperatures in October and November can be 75 degrees and sunny and the beach is normally the warmest in September. You don’t have to worry about snow in the winter or hot heat in the summer. Most summers cool down nicely so guests would only need a light sweater for evening receptions.

Have a destination wedding while honeymooning in California
Instead of having a wedding in your hometown, have a destination wedding. For our  out of town couples, either 2 hours away or across the US, you can get married and have a honeymoon in California. San Luis Obispo county is within hours of Big Sur, Monterey, Santa Cruz, Santa Barbara, and Ventura..  Venture a little further away to Yosemite, San Francisco,  or San Diego.
