Visited San Pedro over the weekend and found some inexpensive places to hold your wedding in the Los Angeles area. San Pedro is located about 20 miles south of Los Angeles, and has some spectacular oceanside locations where you can tie the knot with million-dollar views and still keep within your budget. As an added plus, San Pedro is also home to the Port of Los Angeles World Cruise Center, where many major cruise ships embark on cruises to Baja and other points of interest. Great for your honeymoon!
