In desperate need of help finding a venue in So Cal (preferably Orange County and LA County areas). I was planning a wedding for this September, but my original venue was dropped due to crazy fees. I’m looking for a venue that is open to bringing your own catering and alcohol. I have also been trying to find a beach house that is open for rental for the ceremony/reception.. if anyone knows of any, PLEASE HELP! Thanks!

Grace E. Simons Lodge allows BYO catering only; we had our reception there, includes tables and chairs.
South Coast Botanic Gardens allows BYO catering and alcohol, but you also have to bring in everything else.

I’m getting married in August. We are on a tight budget and found the perfect BYO everything venue. It’s located in H.B, about 2 miles from the beach. Its through the city and they charge by the hour. Below is a picture I found when I was doing my research prior to booking. Good Luck!!

@Michelle1108: Hi there! Did you end up finding many options? I am also looking for a venue that allows BYO booze and catering in So Cal in September and would love to know what you came across! I would be happy to share some of my findings with you as well. m
I look forward to hearing from you!

@Jopez – that’s the Newland Barn right? If so, here’s a video off their site:
Another option in Camarillo is The Camarillo Ranch:
I was looking for the same thing but ended up passing on the beach setting. We ended up booking with Spring Field Banquet Center in Fullerton. It’s very formal – it used to be a Masonic temple. BUT, if you get married on any other day but Saturday, like us, you can bring all your own alcohol with no corkage fees. You can use their catering or bring in your own. (AND you could have the ENTIRE building to yourself!) I’ve found though that it’s MUCH cheaper if you use theirs. The package we got is about $35pp.
