I’m not sure on the cost of these venues because I’m not from the area, but I found a few sites you could check out:

After a quick Google search…

Check the Oregon State Parks website! Many of the coastal parks have excellent amenities (including some lovely pavilions… not sure about indoor spaces). And are very reasonably priced.

I looked at a place today for $50/ hour that includes tables, chairs and linens, no vender fees, cork fees, etc….. It’s a cafe that is operated by a church and used by youth groups and stuff. Most halls and venues are $1,500 – $11,000 in my area so this is super affordable, but it’s still really nice. The guy I met with had a large wedding a year ago and used a where house downtown. Next I was going to look at City buildings, non profit halls, and even club houses- like in gated communities etc, I’m having a small wedding so we can fit almost anywhere….. And no alcohol isn’t a adeal breaker for us.

Try calling hotels in the area you are interested in getting married. Some will make deals with you, if you stay for multiple nights. If the ceremony is simple with little decorations and has less than 25 guests. Then they will let you for a small fee hold your ceremony in their “common area” of the hotel. Meeting or banquet rooms often have fees that are much higher. But common areas are not rooms so they cost a lot less. Downside is that you can not decorate extensively.

The other option is to rent a beach house that overlooks the beach. You can find many beach houses on the internet for rent. I have went to two ceremonies that have been held in beach homes. They were very intimate and lovely.

@automaticflowers: Also check homeaway.com for beach houses! You can probably find some that would be able to accommodate 40 people outdoor, but being able to get them all inside might be a challenge. Worth checking though.
