One thing to consider is a tent.. when doing an outdoor wedding rain is always an option, and sometimes tents can be just as expensive as renting a hall to have the reception.

I would look into historical sites, muesums, gardens, and any other outdoor type location you can think of.

We had our wedding at a summer camp. We would have had a really great experience if the camp director was a nicer person (we worked at the camp as counsellors and he was RUDE!) but most people in that kind of business know how to treat others. The great thing about it was that normally for retreats they rent it out in 24 hour periods, and the prices aren’t too high. So we paid $675 for 24 hours, giving us plenty of time for the rehearsal, set up, take down etc. Camps do generally have some tables and chairs, though not nice ones. They also have full kitchens, making it much easier to bring a caterer in. We found that it was the perfect venue to DIY.
