I am engaged and currently living in Portland, OR but we are relocating to Orange County by March 2011. We are planning a wedding for late summer 2011 and would LOVE to have it on the beach in Cali. I would prefer a house/beachfront venue versus your typical dining hall. I looked on a vacation rentals by owner website but wonder if anyone else has done this and had success? Any advice on the rules/regulations and locations? Anywhere along the Southern California beach is ideal. Please help!
