How many people are you planning on having?  Do you only want a place for ceremony or both ceremony/reception.  I’m having mine at the Pacific Asia Museum in Pasadena.  They have this nice Japanese courtyard in the middle that has a little bridge and koi pond.  The best things is that they are not that pricey.  You pay for the hours you want.  However they do not provide anything.  You would have to rent chairs/tables/etc. 

Here is a link that I found of pics of a wedding there.

um.. this is going to be tough because of the outdoors requirement, under $2k AND w/o weird constraints. (i was in the same boat). this is LA baby.. outdoors don’t come cheap. that said, you gotta be creative…

 1. stressgirl’s suggestion was great – PAM is awesome because it’s intimate, outdoors, pretty.  my friend had her wedding ceremony there and very little decoration needed.

2. Pasadena museum of california art (a little modern, but they have a nice outdoor patio that you can dress up… quite reasonable prices)(literally around the corner from PAM) 

3. heck, try anything in pasadena,esp. look at this link http://www.pasadenacal.com/special_mtg.htm

Yeah, you should call for the current prices, but last I checked, Pacific Asia Museum only costs $950 for 2 hrs, $1300 for 3 hrs and $1650 for 4 hours.  That is definitely a very reasonable price for LA!  And since you are only having 100 guests, that courtyard would be perfect!  What normally happens there is that you have ceremony and then open the museum for $350 to your guests and the coordinator can lead a tour while tables are added in the courtyard for your reception.  The coordinator, Gaby, there is really sweet too!

Check out "here comes the guide".  I don’t know if our location would work for you, but our LA wedding is at UCLA.  And, although I hate USC, they have a beautiful rose garden where they do weddings.  The UCLA venue costs $350 for the ceremony site, and they require you to use their catering (which is EXCELLENT) — prices run $55 – 80 per person, which includes just about everything.

 I don’t know if San Diego works for you but I am having my wedding here and they don’t really advertise just word of mouth. Its a little pricey but you get the run of the place ALL DAY! You have to bring in a caterer, chairs, ect, but it is a really amazing place.

There are many beautiful places in moorpark, simi valley, ojai, westlake, etc… (generally more Ventura county than LA county).  If you’re willing to go a little further away you can probably find something perfect.
