I have been searching for a venue to host my wedding ceremony and reception in the bay area for the last 2 months! Every venue I come across seems to only offer food and beverage from their own kitchen. If you have any suggestions of venues to check out in the bay area please let me know!
I am expecting about 180 guests. I would prefer my ceremony to be outdoors and the reception indoors. Our overall budget for our wedding is $25,000.

Chiming in to wish you luck! Live in the Bay Area and we had the same issue. Wanted our fave restaurant to cater at a local park but then family got involved, dad wanted to pay a majority of cost and was not thrilled with the park idea, so we ended up compromising with a more cookie cutter venue. Honestly…we wish we’d declined his offer and had our day our way. Really didn’t want wedding chicken and thats exactly what we ended up with. But none of the places we consided at the time allowed outside catering. I believe Berkeley Brazilian Room has this option for approved caterers only. Its a gorgeous setting for weddings.
