I am looking into all those places MCDJ. It will be an outdoor wedding with an indoor reception. Black and white themed so semi formal.

well not entirely sure of your 'budget', but look at:

- [ www.serendipitygardenweddings.com ]. this one is in oak glen. super gorgeous & all inclusive. if i remember correctly, it was $12,500 for 125 people for practically everything, seriously. photographer, dj, flowers, tables/chairs, etc.

- [ http://hsresort.com ]. also, very pretty & fairly reasonable. it's in cherry valley, but going off my notes from before i settled, they quoted me $8,000 for 200 people that included chairs/tables/linens, cake, & food.

- [ http://menifee-lakes.com/weddings ]. i can't remember the exact quotes on this one, but i remember it being well-priced for a golf course/clubhouse. we even went & looked at this one & i just can't remember haha. very pretty though & they offer a lot or a little depending what you want.

best of luck!

@ Stephanie and Krystle....How funny is this I am also from So cal and my wedding date is the same.

Here in Riverside we have a beautiful park with a Rose Garden and a boat house. I was going to use them but have since decided to have my wedding in my back yard. I looked at the park and boat house and they are beautiful. I was quoted 1,400 for both 2hours for ceremony site in the garden and 5 hours for reception. However the only thing included were the tables and chairs. Its called Fairmont Park in Riverside

Thanks Mrs. Loera I checked out that website and there's really nice set ups there. I just sent an email to them to get more info.

Here's one you might want to check out: Strathearn Park in Simi Valley. They have a beautiful gazebo in a grassy area with the reception done in the barn...

This is from a wedding we did last September 17th... so this is exactly how how it would look on September 15th!

Krystle... I'm just a DJ. However, I think the venue was very reasonably priced. Call them. Strathearn Historical Park in Simi Valley.

My venue is more central coast but their prices for a beach wedding can't be beat! Around $2500! Sea Crest Resort in Pismo Beach. heres a link!


We are having the ocean front patio wedding with an indoor reception at the Marie Callendars banquet room in front of the hotel, where the room (up to 4 hours) is free you just pay for food which is about $20 per head! We are paying for the wedding and reception and together they are costing us $5250 for 125 people, our wedding was considered "off season" priced!:)

I was recommended by a family friend to check out LA Banquets, and I suggest you do to. Best recommendation I have ever had. You can choose from multiple venues which suite's you many needs for your special day. Should have a look, and good luck :) xx
