I just wanted to know a nice location to get married by the beach. That is not that expensive. Budget around $5K.
Georgmor - Congrats! I'm a planner in So. OC. I've had luck with Dana Point if willing to come south. Baby Beach, Ocean Institute, on Mariner Ship, and Marina Hotel. Each has it's own offering and they vary. I'd be happy to help you in any way and into you to venues...
