I don’t know about Philadelphia but we are having our reception on the beach (well there’s a building and a large deck with a tent because east coast weather is not perfect). Have you considered even renting a beach house and doing a tented reception in the yard?

What about a vineyard wedding?  There are some that I found in the Southern NJ area.

I guess it depends on how far you’re willing to travel. Lots of places at the Jersey shore! We just had one on LBI last weekend, but other popular places are Cape May,Atlantic City,Ocean City…..everyone would still be travelling,but not flying.

You can probably do it less expensively in Southern NJ than farther up the coast.

You could try one of the vinyards in south eastern CT, or if you want the coast try the mansions at Harkness or Avery Point. Aside from the setting/scenery, the vibe really comes from the details (the wording/style of the invites, the people you invite (i.e. not every person you/your parents have ever met), the food, the music, and the decorations).
