I am desperatly searching for a small romantic wedding venue. We are looking to get married soon (end of the summer 9/30/12). I cannot seem to find anything that fits our personality and needs. We are looking for a garden/woodsy venue, outdoor string lighting, with an intimate romantic feel. We will have no more than 40 people in attendance and we are willing to pay up to $4000 for the site fees. We are pretty open to the location as long as it’s no more than 2 hours from SF. PLEASE HELP!!!!! we have checked out hercomestheguide, theknot,idovenues etc. and nothing is jumping out at us except for Madrona Manor, which we will be touring soon.
Thanks in advance for your tips!

Have you looked at the Log Cabin in the Presidio? The Presidio was very affordable for being in SF. Also the UC Berkeley gardens have a pretty site, not sure how much it was though. My fiance and I ended up looking in the Sacramento area for more woodsy options which were more affordable than the Bay Area/Napa/Monterey. We are getting married at the Forest House Lodge. We also looked at fhe Monte Verde Inn and Flower Farm Inn in the Sacramento area. Pol Mountain Retreat in Los Gatos area was also woodsy and affodable. There are also several wineries in the Santa Cruz Mountains that do weddings. Hope this helps!

@SunnySquirrel: Thanks for the tips- I will take a look. Would you happen to know the names of any of those Sacremento options? I’ve heard great things about Forest House Lodge- but I dont think they have outdoor reception options.
