Beautiful ceremony and cheap reception venue

I'm looking for a venue for outdoor ceremony and indoor reception for ~65-75 guests. I've been disappointed by the ceremony site of couple of places I've seen so far ( Freedom hall of gardens in Santa Clara and Sheraton in Palo Alto). A few other ones I've seen (the Ranch, Cinnabar, crystal spring, Pruneyard) are either too high F&B minumum or nice ballroom, but not nice ceremony site etc.


Do you know of any venues with beautiful ceremony site and not too expensive recpetion (~$70/person)?  Am I asking too much?  I don't mind if the food is not so good. My wedding is in October 2010.

so you're looking for a place where u can have both ceremony and reception at one location?


is it possible to make it 2 different places? that might make it easier to find a beautiful place with affordable dinner options

I think I have to separate them now.


I like Trader Vic's hall in palo alto for reception, but they don't have a ceremony site.  Any recomm for ceremony sites around there would be great.

You should check Elizabeth Gamble Garden in Palo Alto. Cutest little place ever and a little hidden gem in the Bay Area. http://www.gamblegarden.org/
