Unfortunately in CA marriage certificates are private so one would need to have "standing" to obtain a certificate; if one has standing (ie they were a party to the marriage) they may file a request here:

Here is a comprehensive list of who is entitled to a copy of the certificate:

Otherwise the only way to get a copy would be to file a motion in the local court requesting the registrar to release the certificate; one would need justification for the request (ie a valid legal purpose).
