Hi fellow Bees,
I am recently engaged and am trying to scrounge around on the internet to find an affordable reception venue that allows outside catering since I would love to have an In-n-Out truck. I would prefer a location in Orange County, where I live, but am open to Los Angeles, South Bay and San Gabriel Valley as well. One option I have already considered is the Diamond Bar Community Center but since I have already been to a few weddings that were held there, I am hoping to find somewhere different. My total wedding budget at this point is between 10k-12k and I am open to having the wedding during off-season and off-times like a Friday evening or Saturday afternoon.
Thanks for all your help!

We had our wedding at Neighborhood Unitarian in Pasadena–they have a really nice outdoor area, but it’s better for afternoon weddings as the neighbors are fussy about noise in the evenings.

My sister found a place called Hidden Oaks in Rancho Cucamonga. It’s $3000, includes rentals, a wedding coordinator, 6 hours event time, rehearsal, and they will set up for you. You can BYO caterer.

We had our reception at Grace E. Simons Lodge in LA (near Dodger stadium). Our budget was 10K too. The have reduced pricing for non-Saturdays/holidays and allow/require outside catering.

@kkudo233: check out cabrillo marina in san pedro http://www.yelp.com/biz/the-plaza-at-cabrillo-marina-san-pedro
Whole venue was $2700 and you get your $500 deposit back, it’s right on the water with a lawn area, shaded concrete area under beautiful trees and there is a hall that has plenty of windows and french doors if you’re like me and hate ball rooms. 🙂
