ohdarling : I am not sure how far south you are willing to go but the Léal Vineyards barn in Hollister could be an option! We had our wedding at one of their other venues but they were amazing to work with. It is pretty much all inclusive so you have to use their vendors but they were all amazing! The food and cake is also to die for.

ohdarling :  My best friend got married last year at Murrieta’s Well in Livermore and it is gorgeous. It’s a wine cellar, not a barn, but it definitely has a rustic, barn-like atmosphere. The only slight downside might be that they are open as a tasting room until like 5pm, so your event has to start late and there are other people still around when the wedding party is setting up and taking pictures.

Northern CA bee, here!  What’s the max you’re willing to pay for a venue? (I don’t want to suggest something horribly out of your budget)

  • Wedding: August 2018 - Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills

Nestldown in Los Gatos looks gorgeous but I have no idea how much it costs. Probably a lot. Also check out the Dana Powers Barn in Nipomo…looks like a gorgeous venue for a rustic wedding

  • Wedding: December 2016 - Presidio Log Cabin

I got married at the Presidio Log Cabin in San Francisco – it is not expensive compared to other SF venues (because it’s a federal park) and you can do an outside ceremony with the Presidio/Bay in the background and an indoor reception.

It was $5500 for the venue rental and $150 for the rehearsal. You can either do table/chair/linen rentals through them (options were cheap but limited), or choose to bring in an outside vendor (which I did). They also allow outside catering and we were able to bring our own alcohol, which saved a ton. I found them easy to work with and LOVED the setting. It rained on my wedding so we did everything inside, but here are some pics if you’d like to see!

I highly recommend Toast Catering if you go with an outside catering company. They may have some ideas on venues too. They are based in Pacifica, but go all over.

PM me if you have detailed questions.
