San Diego Courthouse Wedding | Glenda + Melvin
Another beautiful day to get married at the San Diego Courthouse! Winters in San Diego feel like summers for some people. A great place to have your winter wedding. If you can’t decide what to do for your wedding, opt for a no fuss courthouse wedding. You and close friends and family can enjoy the beautiful scenic views of the marina, boats and palm trees.
These two got married at the ceremony arch outside. If you can, I would recommend requesting outdoor, but if you are not able to, we can always do a mock ceremony for the photo after when it’s available. So no need to worry should you be unable to request outdoor.
The last time slot for marriage license appointments is at 4:30pm. I always recommend couples to get that one or the very first one for light purposes. Although, at the end of the day, there are so many different spots around the San Diego County Administrator Building that I can always find a suitable place to shoot your wedding photos.
The location of the San Diego County Administrator building is so close to tons of delicious restaurants. This makes it easy, if you invite close friends and family to the courthouse ceremony to celebrate afterwards at a nearby restaurant. You have Seaport Village nearby, Little Italy and Downtown San Diego. All of it walking distance, so take your pick, you won’t be disappointed.
Sometimes I get couples who want to shoot at the beach after the ceremony. That is totally possible, just have to take account some logistics like traffic and whether you just want the ocean water as your background or you actually want toes in the sand. If you want ocean water background, then we don’t have to go very far. We are in front of the marina, and down the street from Seaport Village. Nearby beaches could be Sunset Cliffs in Point Loma, Scripps Beach in La Jolla.
