You have to do both things. It's not a marriage until you have the license filed with the state. Otherwise, you're just living together. You would obtain a marriage license in California. Then, you would need to arrange a marriage ceremony. Check if the justice of the peace at the courthouse would marry you and sign the license, which you then record as legal proof of your marriage. A minister can also sign the marriage license before you record it.
