I don’t know how affordable it is, but did you look at Rancho Las Lomas? It’s not rustic, but it’s a great outdoor venue.

Hillcrest Park/Terrace in Fullerton is really beautiful and affordable. You do need to bring everything in though. But there’s lots of different spots for the ceremony and then a rustic terrace that reminded me of a winery.

thepsampler:  For how many people? 

Dove Canyon Courtyard allows outside bar and catering: http://dovecanyoncourtyard.com/orange-county-wedding-venue/classic-package/

Santiago Regional Park is beautiful but takes fewer guests (~100).

I also looked into the Fullerton Arboretum.

By The Way, a friend of mine got married at Rancho Las Lomas- it’s beautiful but it ain’t cheap. They spent over $25K for about 100 people. 

 

Good luck!

Does it have to be Orange County or would Temecula, Murrieta, Fallbrook area work? There are a lot of areas in wine country.

GeliBee:  The wedding I attended was on a Friday and that’s how they were able to do it. $25,000 for 100 people still sounds pretty good, though.

Not sure if you’re willing to look outside OC, but we just got married in Palm Springs (about 2 hours away) our venue was amazing, and it was $7000 for a 3 day rental that included 6 bedrooms that we gave to our parents and siblings, AND a huge Salt Water pool. Also, the house used to belong to Adam West (the original Batman!)  It was awesome! 

It’s called the Cree Estate.

  • It can hold 200 people, pleny of onsite parking 
  • There is a ceremony lawn, and a sepperate reception area 
  • The property management is super hands-off, they don’t charge you everytime you come to scope it out with a vendor! BUT – you do have to provide all your own stuff (rentals, lighting, etc) which can get expensive. 
  • Our wedding was 105 guests, all 3 days of events cost us about $27K (I tried so hard to keep it at $20k, but we went over). And that was us being frugal!

Dove Canyon Courtyard gets a second vote from me. I have a girlfriend that has a super tight budget that is getting married there and at a great price. Allowed to us any outside vendors for catering and other needs so I would suggest checking them out.

We just went to a wedding at Hidden Valley Gold Club in Norco and it had beautiful views of the mountains and hills. Not sure what it costs though, just throwing that out there in case you want to look into it.

thepsampler:  No problem! I saw you’d be interested in Temecula…I’m from there & married there so I’ve done a lot of research in the area. Wineries are a bit expensive, but there are a lot of beautiful private estates in the area.
