For a Resort Wedding, Consider Newport Beach or Palm Springs

I came across this press release from April, 2008, that states that two California cities made it on the "Top 10 Resort Towns" list put out by AOLTravel. And those two cities are: Newport Beach and Palm Springs; which makes them obvious choices for your California destination wedding.

How does a city meet the criteria for inclusion on the top ten list? For starters, there has to be easy access from major and regional airports, which is really important if you're having a destination wedding with out-of-town guests. And, each resort town "offers the upscale luxury you demand, the accessibility you need, and the ability to see and be seen while you're there."

I get the "be seen" part of the quote, but not really sure what "the ability to see" is all about. See as in see celebrities? Or see as in see a beautiful place?

Oh, well, anyway, back to Newport Beach and Palm Springs.

Yes, both are places where you can find upscale luxury. What resorts in both towns would you want to consider for your destination wedding?
