      I heart Catalina, it's beautiful. I'm sure if you google Catalina weddings you will get lots of great results.

        I have never been to a wedding on Catalina, but I have been there often. It is beautiful and they have a couple of really cute places to stay. I know the Wrigley (as in gum) mansion is on the island and has been turned into a hotel I believe... Good luck with the planning!

          A friend of mine got engaged on Catalina Island and the pictures she had were incredible. It is very beautiful. Not sure about hotels out there but I bet you could find something and I heard the beaches are great.

            I had to search to find this thread again!! In the new edition of the Destination wedding guide that is included with the Bridal Guide there is an article on Catalina Weddings. The Wrigley Mansion is now called the Inn on Mt. Ada. They also mention the Hotel Metropole as another possible wedding location. Hope this helps.

              I actually shot a wedding there a while ago (5+ years) and here's what I remember... no cars on the island, just golf carts. Also, the ferry that leaves from Long Beach stops at a certain time so either you have to be on the ferry to go home or you're marooned on the island for the night :) Gorgeous place though and there was a hotel with great views. Also, popular with scuba divers.

              its very tiny but could be really cool if all the guests head over on the ferry together.

                Just an odd fact that I saw in a local advertisement they are now offering steam ship rides to Catalina Islan that are supposed to remind you of the old style cruises on steam ships. Now your guests can cruise to Catalina in grand style!!The boat is fully restored and looks really fun. This is the link: http://www.lanevicto...ndex.phphttp://

                    I've also been to Catalina Island many times. Just make sure you take the big boat over there because there's less of a tendency for sea sickness. Also, there are 2 sides to Catalina: Avalon (main part) and the back side (Two Harbors). Very quaint and laid back. Lots of people go camping there too.
