Hi, 

I’m from Healdsburg but am searching more in the guerneville area because it is pretty and more affordable.  With that said, I would check out the picnic area in riverfront regional park, very beautiful spot there with redwoods.  With a smaller group it would be nice and very affordable if you don’t mind not having amplified music.  Here is a wedding that was done there:

Check out the town of Monte Rio, about 25 minutes from Healdsburg.  The highlanddell would be a venue I would definitely consider if I was doing a smaller wedding.  Here is a video:http://vimeo.com/tag:highland+dell+lodge

Also, in Cazadero I have looked into a cool spot for a ceremony: St. Coleman’s outdoor chapel.  It is $350 to rent.  You would have to find a spot for your reception.  Cazsonoma Inn is near by.  Here is a wedding that was done at the outdoor chapel and then the reception was in the Highlanddell:http://www.aliciaoblander.com/susanian.html

For Info on the chapel call Bette Campbell 707-632-5654.  It is located on 5695 Cazadero Hwy.  I have gone out to see it a couple of times, no apt necessary.  It really is so beautiful, however, since I am planning my wedding for 150 people the parking is not sufficient.  

I hope that helps!

I’d check out the local restaurants or boutique hotels for your wedding. That’s a huge weekend in Sonoma County, but the restaurants might be slower because of the bbqing and camping that will be happening everywhere.
