CA legal beach wedding?

Recommended Posts

Honestly all you need is someone to perform the ceremony and any pretty place will do! Since you're not having guests or anything like that you don't have to worry about permits or anything.

 

One thing I'm not 100% sure on is how you're going to get a CA wedding license since you don't live here. Dan and I had to go to the city records department together to get the license. This is not the same as a courthouse that marries you (you would still need this license to do that) it's the actual marriage license that a minister, priest, judge, etc. would sign. I know you have to both be there together and apply in person for it. So just keep that in mind as you will need to arrive in LA (or SD or SB, etc.) at least 1 business day prior so you can go to the county clerk's office and get your license. Here's the info:

Here's the application you need to submit for your license:

We went to the Van Nuys office and were in and out in about 20 minutes. If you do decide to marry in CA iin the LA vicinity I recommend this office because it was not very crowded.

Laguna Beach has some nice relatively private areas and it is easy to fly into Orange County airport. Easy for anyone to get to that is flying in from out of town and lots of hotel options. For it to be legal you need to get forms from the county (different for each county) in which you plan to get married and register the marriage. Need recognized officiant and two witnesses to make it legal.

Pick a local officiant and they can help you with the details.

 

Beach weddings are nice but check the tides on the day planned as at high tide there may be a lot less beach to use. The last hour before sunset is a great time for a ceremony. My photographer, Bruce Stenman at Lightsmith Wedding, checked the tides and the sunset and even how best to have the ceremony oriented for my wedding day next year. A local photographer will know the best spots and can provide advice on parking, getting ready options, and other concerns that you might need even think of in your planning.

We are getting married at Scripp's Park in La Jolla, which is right outside the city of San Diego. It is a beautiful place! It is not right on the beach, but it sits on top of a cliff that is oceanside...check out this link. I am using San Diego Destination Weddings to plan my wedding and so far they have been wonderful!!

What about Ventura. It's a bit north of LA, but it's beautiful and quiet. We went there and we were the only people on the beach in the middle of the day in June. There are so many other beautiful beaches, but they are always crowded. If you want something private, I'd look into Ventura.

I am actually having a beach wedding in San Diego...on a cliff. If it's just going to be you, your fiance, and an officiant....then you're fine just walking out on any beach and doing your thing...even a small group (i'm talking 5-6 people) is ok. If you're going to have any significant size group (maybe 15-20), or seating/set up of any kind...then you need a permit. Permits are not expensive (couple hundred maybe), but they do only offer1 per day for the area. As far as locations...I would suggest Laguna or Dana Point...those two tend to have a little more private coves and what-not. I live in Huntington Beach, about a mile from the beach....that is just big open beach. Perfect if you're wanting to be in the large open area. As for San Diego....we're getting married at Sunset Cliffs in San Diego. These are dirt/sand cliffs that drop off into the ocean. The point I chose fits up to 150 people, but there is another point there that is smaller and still fantastic. I have pics of our location if you want to see it. email me at beachbunni307@ aol.com. The only disadvantage to having it on a public beach is that it has to be available to the public at all times...no roping anything off. I also found some officant/planners who do elopements....email me and I will find their info again for you. :)

    • Recent studies indicate that organizations, both large and small, either already have an HRO relationship and plan to expand it, or are considering one in the coming year. The survey, conducted by HfS Research and the London School of Economics, finds that 31% of business already outsource human resources san antonio and are looking to increase outsourced services over the next year. What is the driver for these businesses to outsource human resources? It is no secret that in lean economic times, business owners are pressed to identify expenses within an organization that can be reduced or minimized. Employment overhead (payroll, taxes, workers' compensation insurance, employee benefits, governmental compliance, and other employee-related cost centers) typically comprise the single highest area of expense within a company. More than rent, or facilities operations, or equipment, or compliance, human resources administration and expenses weigh heaviest on the business's bottom line. Streamlined HR Systems HRO firms offer streamlined human resource systems to their clients, significantly minimizing management's time in overseeing daily administrative tasks. Non-productive "paper pushing" can be outsourced to the HR firm, enabling key staff to focus on their core competencies. Processes such as payroll processing, tax filing and compliance, Unemployment Claims administration, workers' compensation management, and employee benefits enrollment and management can all easily and efficiently be outsourced. Cost effective insurance products. Reducing employment risks Government compliance and regulations continue to grow in complexity and scale. From wage and hour issues, to discrimination restrictions, to protected classes of employees and new disability guidelines, employers often walk through a minefield of risk. Without dedicated human resources personnel or legal counsel, it is likely a business will be faced with some form of an employment lawsuit in the coming years which can costs tens-of-thousands of dollars. With close to 100,000 employment claims filed in 2010 (the highest on record!), employers recognize the risk and are turning to Human Resource Outsourcing firms to assist them in managing these risks. Human Resources Outsourcing may not be the solution for every employment need. However, for most employers with less than 200 employees looking to reduce employment expenses and overhead, outsourcing human resources may be exactly what their organization needs. As the economy continues to improve and stabilize, the time will soon come that employers will be refocusing on growth and profitability. It may also entail rehiring staff, restructuring the organization, or simply concentrating on areas that have been left on the side. Certainly, proper employment administration and oversight will be priorities to get back on their feet. However, with the demands of rebuilding, many employers may be unable to spend the necessary time focusing on their staff. Read about one organization that found a different way - through Human Resources Outsourcing. Since joining the San Antonio Human Resources Outsourcing firm, he feels that the day-to-day protection he experiences in the area of employment exposures is immeasurable. Our HRO vendor has become our 'go-to resource.' Without this type of relationship we end up making our own decisions, without proper knowledge of the law, and will ultimately You think you can use common sense, but common sense and the law rarely match! The Director says the benefits of the outsourcing relationship were immediately realized, as the new systems and processes were implemented and functioning within 30-60 days.
