All this rain we’re getting is going to make wedding season on the Central Coast extra magical this year. Green, wildflower-filled hills will greet out-of-towners on their quests to celebrate love in a vineyard, next to a barn, on an oak-smattered hillside, or overlooking the Pacific as the sun goes down. Yes, this is a pretty idyllic destination to say “I do.” But there’s more to a wedding than simply inviting your guests, and New Times
wants to help you remember that your wedding day should reflect you. Whether that means you want to hire someone to help or try to do it all yourself, our annual Brides issue contains some handy tips that can push you in the right (meaning: less stressful) direction.
