Did you check out the Redondo Beach Historic Library? It’s old, a mix of spanish-style and art deco, and *right* on the beach. It’s not BYOB, but the packages come with all the tables, chairs, fairy lights, votives, wedding cake, and even a DJ. The walls are still lined with bookshelves, and you can decorate them however you want – with books if you’re a reader, or with family pictures, flowers, whatever. It should be able to accomodate a wedding your size, too. It’s a cool place and I liked it a lot, but unfortunately it wouldn’t work for my ginorous wedding. I feel your frustration with finding a venue, especially with how a big guest count can be a limiting factor. We are looking at over 300 people for ours! It’s kind of a nightmare. Anyways, if you haven’t seen this place, check it out. And if you have, then ignore me ๐Ÿ™‚

Have you checked out Rincon Beach Club in Carpinteria (SB)?  Ceremony and reception at the same location, garden setting and indoor area, can easily fit 170 guests (we had 175+, I think max is 225), near the ocean.  It is not BYO (they were a catering company before they had a venue) and might be more expensive than you want, but if it is within your budget I would highly recommend it.  We were married there 3 years ago and the location, food, and staff are amazing!  http://www.rinconcatering.com/

I was just on Southern Weddings’ blog and they have the most gorgeous post here about a wedding that took place at Newland Barn and man oh man oh man it looks STUNNING…..

I’m from Palos Verdes so of course I am sad that La Venta doesn’t hold more people for ya, haahaahaa  What about PV Country Club?

What about the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach, Bowers Museum in Santa Ana or Descansco Gardens in LA,, Summit House in Fullerton?  Those are all beautiful nature spots ๐Ÿ™‚  Have you tried searching HereComesTheGuide.com ?   You can narrow down your search to venus that fit your guest count so you dont fall in love with more venues that are too small ๐Ÿ™‚  Good luck and welcome to Weddingbee!

A friend is getting married here http://www.mccormickhomeranch.com/info.html. It looks great and seems like it might be worth checking into for you? There’s also a place called Orcutt Ranch in the Valley, a really gorgeous garden property. http://www.laparks.org/dos/horticulture/orcuttranch.htm. I’ve never been to a wedding there but it’s right down the street from where I grew up and its just huge and very lovely to wander. Apparently you can get married at Paradise Cove and I have to say that would be wonderful but I’d imagine pricey.

oops sorry I just realized you specified south bay OC or Santa Barbara . . . well Camarillo is on the way to Santa Barbara but certainly not SB and Orcutt Ranch is in the Valley. Sorry about that.

Try Covina Hills Ranch Estate.  You can find them on Facebook or Project wedding.  They are new and fairly inexpensive allow your own catering/alchohol, and your event can go until 12am.
