When we think about California weddings, we picture star-studded affairs that run into the millions of dollars. We picture limousines, impressive villas, and perhaps even the ocean as a backdrop to a ceremony. In short, we envision Hollywood. Unfortunately, this does not allow us to think of the other gorgeous spots California has to offer. Take Chico, for example.
Chico itself is considered one of California's cities with a stubbornly remaining small town feel to them. Akin to a modern Mayberry, the city is nestled in the Northern Sacramento Valley of the sunny state of California. For a wedding, or even for starting a new life together, Chico is probably one of the most wonderful choices an engaged couple could make.
One of the many amenities that makes Chico hot for marrying couples, are the many getaway possibilities the city provides. Whether the bride and groom wish to settle in a picturesque bed and breakfast establishment or would prefer the understated elegance of a Tudor-style self labeled chateau, this city truly offers it all! Additionally, wedding guests will be comfortably accommodated at any one of the family owned or chain run hotels or motels in the area. For the traveling guests, RV parks will be a welcome sight!
What else makes Chico hot? How about getting married in the same surroundings that the legendary actor Errol Flynn portrayed Robin Hood! Imagine feasting your eyes on the same views Mr. Flynn enjoyed, the same scenery that inspired thousands of movie goers, and the same scenery that is forever immortalized by the movie. For this one of a kind wedding, Chico is your only choice! The location where "Robin Hood" was filmed is called Bidwell Park. With more than 3,600 acres, the park is proudly included in the list of America's largest municipal parks. Another breathtaking outdoor location is the Honey Run Covered Bridge which is just a very short drive outside of Chico itself. This bridge is a true historic treasure, and a perfect backdrop for a high-class outdoor wedding.
For the truly adventurous couple who wishes to make a lasting memory with an unusual outdoor wedding, there is the Chico public trolley. These lovingly painted and decorated trolleys remind of a time gone by that spoke of promise, adventure, and class. Imagine arriving in style at the location of your choice via the trolley. Any couple will be all but guaranteed to find that perfect sport for a Chico, hot wedding!
Should a couple prefer to have their nuptials indoors instead, the many grand buildings are another asset that makes Chico hot. Take the Bidwell Mansion, for example, which has been converted into a museum. It is a gorgeous three-story villa that offers perfect photo opportunities for a bridge and groom, and even a sizeable wedding party. In closing, it is obvious that what makes Chico hot are the atmosphere, the surroundings, and the plethora of tangible history that accompanies the visitor at every step of the way. Such assets cannot be purchased, and this city is indeed a rare find.
