My venue is a little higher than your price range (not too much, though you do have to use their catering), but the ceremony site is in the middle of the redwood forest and it is super close to Santa Cruz, so I have to share!  It’s called Pema Osel Ling.  They’re website doesn’t have many pics, but if you look on facebook under Ampetheater of the Redwoods at Pema Osel Ling, there are great pics!  Good luck!  This area is SO HARD to find something affordable!

Also, would you mind sharing the name of the baker you SO loves?  We’re still looking!  Thanks!

We got married at Murietta’s Well.  It’s not a barn, but it has a similar feel… a bit more formal though.  Check it out, I LOVED it.

Their rental price is pretty cheap (we paid $1000 for a Saturday!) but the food is pricier (about $65/pp).

@AllyCRN:  How about Pie Ranch in Pescadero? They have a barn for dancing but do both the ceremony and dinner outside. They may have raised their prices recently but it’s worth checking out.

@AllyCRN:  Thanks!  And sorry for taking so long to get back to you.  I don’t know if Pema Osel Ling will let you not do dinner.  It’s something worth e-mailing to ask.  They have been super fast at getting back to me with answers to my questions!

@AllyCRN:  Also re: alcohol – you provide, no corkage fees or anything, but you have to hire a bartender from them for $25/hr.  If you want to use their glassware for the bar it’s about $125 (depending, of course, on the number of guests), but you don’t have to use their glassware.
