Wow… well, that is really going to be TOUGH for an “OMG” venue. Like, really really tough. Can I ask where you have found that will include ALL of that for under $20k? You make it seem like there are several.
I’m not aware of ANY venue in LA that has flourist, DJ, officiant and photographer included. I”ve never heard of such a thing, anywhere, and I have coordinated weddings in Maryland, NYC, and here in LA.
I can almost promise that you won’t find all of those included for the budget you want, but if they do exist, you certainly won’t find it for a place you want to have it at if you are looking for the “OMG” factor.
What you can find is a venue that has prefered vendors, but they are not going to be all inclusive. Basically, you are asking for the almost impossible. I”m not going to lie.
Now… that said, most hotel venues will include:
Catering (food, and sometimes bar)
Plates, glasses, flatware

But you need to expect like, $15,000 minimum for this. But these aren’t really going to be “wow” places. If you really want to save money, there are even cheaper places that can probably go lower to $12,500, but they really won’t be “wow” places either, but still very nice.
Your average florist is going to run $1500 (very basic)- $5000 (very floral)
Your average photographer is going to be $1500-2000+(if you want a second shooter, you’re looking closer to $3000)
Your average DJ with basic set up is going to cost $1000-2000
Now, if you are looking for something cheap, I did go to a hotel in Knotts last year that had packages for $48pp, but I can’t recall off-hand which hotel it was. Probably just the Knotts Berry Farm hotel, but I can’t recall, I am sorry. It was just next to the park, you could see the rides from the parking lot.
