I am looking to get married June 2014. I have my heart set on a outdoor/indoor venue with a rustic feel. I am thinking something like a barn ,ranch, garden or mission like feel. I want a space that doesnt require alot of decorations. My max buget for everything is 20,000 for a wedding of 125. I am open to areas throughout California orange county, san diego, ventura, santa barbara etc. I just began looking and I have only view one venue that was way out of my price range.

Green Gables and Twin Oaks Garden Estate in Northern San Diego County are both renovated school houses from the 1800’s. They both have a shabby chic English garden vibe.

I emailed the Green Gables venue and the lady said they book 18 months in advance. It was very cute though.

Most of these are Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo county, but there are a lot of barn venues out here!
Dana Powers Barn and House:
Santa Margarita Ranch:
La Cuesta Ranch:
I know there are a few more that you can google.. there’s a lot in this area, but it may be too north for you?
Good luck! 🙂

Well I was on the same budget, and wanted an outdoor garden feel. I chose the Fullerton Arboretum, right next to Cal State Fullerton. It is absolutely gorgeous! The pictures on their site arent the greatest… Theyre a bit dated haha but I highly recommend you go there and walk around! There is a wisteria arbor (which I am getting married under) and it is beautiful! And the venue is extremely affordable. Free to get in, and it closes to the public at 4 so no random people wandering around your wedding haha

Cakamigos ranch was my first choice and it is truly gorgeous!!!
