What’s “low” for you and what type of venue are you looking for? Here are a few I found while looking in LA, but I can’t say whether or not they meet all your requirements. These were among the lowest that I found, but most are $1K-$3K.  

Temescal Gateway Park

Women’s 20th Century Club in Eagle Rock or Eagle Rock Center for the Arts

Gallery 1018 (no outside space, though)

BoxEight Studios

Summerkids Camp in AltaDena (Angelus National Forest–but you would have to do it outside the summer season)

Leo Carrillo Ranch* (I think…I can’t remember their price)

Heritage Square Museum* (also can’t remember $) 

You could also try the Pasadena City Hall. Another option is to look at restaurants–I know you want outside catering, but perhaps there’s a place that has the type of food you want with outside space. You can also get married somewhere like a public park (San Pedro Friendship Bell, Griffith Park etc.) and then have a reception in the restaurant.

I do not know if it is to far for you but Strawberry Fields Golf Course in Irvine is really nice and was not really to expensive.

Check out the hacienda at San Clemente State Beach.  It is all outdoor (large lawn area for ceremony and cocktails, large tiled patio for reception) and can definitely fit 125.  The hacienda is on the cliffs above the beach, so there is a great ocean view and good photo places, but no sand!  My cousin got married there last September and it was GORGEOUS!

@Sahar: I have not gone to a wedding there but before we found our church (San Pedro) it was my top choice for our reception. One of the things I liked that it was not in a super busy area so less lookey loos and what not.

My brother had his reception at Strawberry Farms.  They don’t allow outside catering, so I think the buffet option they chose came out to be about $100/person.  There were wild rabbits all over the golf course, so that’s a plus in my book.  =P
