I would look into restaurants in your area. We also didn’t want a big hoopla, so we found a restaurant with lots of character and good food!

we had a very simple ceremony and reception. we had it all at the same place. (you can see pics of it here so you can see what my version of low-key is) i think your venue depends on size… we had about 60 people. we found an old church that was owned and fixed up by a couple that rents it out for events, classes, etc. it depends where you live of course and what time of year you’ll be getting married, but i would look into state parks (you can rent space in parks here in portland), private rental venues (like ours… maybe dance halls, community centers, a lot of time elks lodges  and such are actually nice inside, etc), if you live in a city check out rooftop locations, and if you life in a more rural location, maybe a farm, winery or barn is available? hope that helps some!

Kat, I’m struggling with the same issues. I’m leaning toward a nice restaurant that won’t need a lot in the way of decoration. The thing about barns, empty rooms and church halls is that some of them need HELP in the way of decorating, and that can add up. Prioritize what’s important. Is it your dress, the photographer, or good food? Once you have a priority list, finding and deciding on a venue might be a little easier. It’s working for me so far, anyway. For FH and I, good food is #1, followed by a photog who will take amazing photos, followed by a great venue, my dress, and the list goes on.
