I'm planning a small wedding of about 15 people -- far below the normal amount of 50 required for most recommended venues. If we do a wedding on the beach, are there any places with handicap access? Are there any restaurants that you recommend will take a reservation for a wedding party of this size? Thanks!

Many of these questions depend on when you are planning to do your wedding, but the answer to everything is that yes, these things are available.

For handicap beach access I'd recommend doing the ceremony in the area near the pier at the south end of town. There are walkways that extend about half way out on the beach that would accommodate wheelchairs. As another alternative, you could get access to a beach wheelchair. See this thread for more info on them.

Several restaurants can also help you. Many have small rooms or private areas. Here are a few I suggest contacting: Longboard Cafe (67th Street), Harrison's Harbor Watch (at the inlet), and Harpoon Hanna's (Route 54). All handle larger parties or have private areas that could accommodate you.

I would call the Clarion or Princess Royal as they specialize in wedding ceremonies.

My cousin got married in OC and we all went to Hoopers after for dinner. There was a lot more than 15 so I'm sure they would accommodate if you call ahead. 

Sunset Grill in West OC is another great place, they took reservations this Summer for our group of 10.

You can always call the Clarion, Marriott or Carousel to assist in catering the wedding.  They have a small banquet room and would gladly help.  They can also help with handicapped access.  Try http://www.sandhelper.com for a nice sand wheelchair option.

Lighthouse Sound is another great option.
