I was married at the Admiral Kidd Club on the Navy base in Point Loma.  Not sure if that is what your looking for though.  You also need to be military or have a military sponsor for base weddings. 

There are a few golf course in the Santee and Rancho SanDiego areas that may fit what your looking for. I went to weddings there but cannot remember the names. Also look up in Temecula at some of the wineries. A few bees have had their weddings up that way. The venues were pretty. Sorry I don’t have more names for you.

My first thought when I read this was Temecula also…however, I think most tend to be strict on the bar (they want only their wines served), but maybe you can find one that isn’t!  It’s gorgeous out there.

Not sure what your budget is but you could try. Los Willows and The Grand Traditon. Both located in Fallbrook, CA. I got married at The grand tradition. It’s GORGEOUS. Good Luck.

The San Clemente Casino is pretty. It is right across the road from the ocean.

@CaliBrit:  Hi! I’m getting married at Temecula Creek Inn, and it’s a good option for brides that want something different than a winery wedding. Check out their stuff online, they are amazing. Plus they do have their minimum pricing, but depending on the size of your guest list, you can get so much out of it.

 

I do recommend the other places that were mentioned in Fallbrook as well, we looked at a few of them :]

I agree with Temecula or Fallbrook. My venue is in Fallbrook and it’s beautiful and we’re able to bring in most vendors, but not a bartender like you want.

@CaliBrit:  We had a very positive experience with AKC. The food is “wedding food” but still yummy. I didn’t have any complaints about the service staff. Some brides may be put off by the lack of a private tasting-AKC does a big group tasting a few times per year. Also, since there are so many weddings there, the catering managers really don’t contact you that much after taking you initial contract. You really only start dealing with them 90 days before when you make your second payment. The bulk of the interaction is 30 days before your wedding. It was fine with me.  Our wedding went off without a hitch.

@CaliBrit:  We went with Temecula Creek Inn! It just fit as far as theme and having the hotel for our large number of out of town guests :]

@CaliBrit:  Not sure if you have found anything, but we just recently settled on Mt Woodson Castle in Ramona. Catering is included, but you can bring in your own alcohol. You do have to use their bartenders, but it isn’t much. I think the minimum guest count is 100. You might want to look into it. Your list of things hou want sounds similar to what we wanted! Good Luck!
