@CWandJJ:  Not really a field, and also a bit above your budget (so helpful of me, I know!), but we had our wedding at Neighborhood Unitarian Church in Pasadena–they have a large back lawn with redwood trees, and the rental gets you use of their kitchen, some table and chair rentals, etc (you can see the full info on their site). Their wedding coordinator was super helpful and it’s a really beautiful space.

Maybe there are some other churches with similar setups that are a little less expensive? Just trying to provide some inspiration… Or local community centers?

Might be booked because your wedding is in August, but have you looked into Temescal Canyon Park?

I’d also look at VRBO.com (vacation rentals by owner). The site will list private homes that are available for vacation rentals, but some are open for special events (like weddings) as well. The catch is that not many can accommodate larger than 100-150 people. However, search in a place like Malibu or Calabasas and you might find something that has a field or something field-like. Good luck!

Check out Orange County.  I rented a small park in Dana Point for 4hrs and it was only $150.  Dana Point is very reasonable.  You can also check Laguna Beach but beach traffic will be crazy in August.

The Exposition Club House (Also called the Ahmanson Senior Center) Has a beautiful ballroom with exposed dark wood beams and a spanish style courtyard. $300 for 3 hours. $100 cleaning fee. And $20/per hour staff fee. (Wellllll under budget.) You can see photos of it on this blog here:

Somewhere in the area there’s also the Keck Amphitheatre which is $500 and the Comrie Hall $300, But I don’t know what those looks like. (They were on the price brochure for the Club house from the EXPO Center.)

Oh! There’s also the Exposition Park Rose Gardens. I remember they’re cheap, but I don’t know how much. I think it’s ceremony only, but I could be wrong.

There is an AMAZING private park owned by the city in Elysian Park (Private driveway that leads up to it and a private parking area.) that sounds EXACTLY like what you want. Large large field, surrounded by trees. $250 for 4 hours. Additional hours are $100 per hour. You can have up to 500 people! But they don’t allow booze last I checked. (I heard that may or may not be changing.) Contact me if you want more info about this one. I’ll have to find it.

Newland Barn in Huntington Beach – $90 per hour plus some fees.

Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden – Varies depending on what garden area you want. There’s alot to choose from. Anywhere from $600-$1200. But I think you may have to use their catering. Go here to download the pricing/info packet:

Speaking of houses to rent the Tuscan Villa Estate, also called Topanga House of Healing a Tuscan Villa Estate is really neat. The owner was super duper nice and she does a lot of weddings. Even has the tables and chairs. There’s a garden/lawn to have the wedding outdoors and even a greehouse style building (covered area lots of windows) to have the reception. There’s actually a couple areas to choose from and you get the house as well. So lots and lots of plates, pots and pans. I think there were even a couple ovens. It’s set up really well to cook for large events. Here’s two links. The tripadvisor site has the contact info, but the yelp page has the MUCH better photos. Including photos of other peoples weddings.

Let me know if these help. If those don’t work I can try and go through my research to see if I can find more.
