So you've popped the question and said your yes and now it's time to plan the magic of your big day. As you are looking for locations, keep in mind that natural landscapes, good food, and small city charm will go a long way with making your special day something you and your guests will remember forever.

California has long been the place for destination weddings, and one of the most beautiful spots is Carmel. Carmel is nestled in the rolling green hills along California's coastline.
