Denver Botanic Gardens York Street
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
It was a great venue and may work for you. We had about 150 people in the Romantic Gardens for our ceremony. It holds 125 seated, so some folks stood. But our ceremony was only about 30 minutes and no one minded. There's also benches at the back and in the gazebos that flank the ceremony area. It is wheelchair accessible - my FIL is disabled and we had no trouble getting him around. They have wheelchairs to loan at the front desk and this worked out great for my grandmother, too. If you only do the ceremony there, I think it's pretty reasonable - around $1000. September 16-April 30, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. May 1-September 15, 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday-Tuesday and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday-Friday.

This is a large muesum with a lobby they rent out for weddings. It can be dark on foggy SF days. On a sunny day, it is pretty like in the photo. The whole museum is accessible, including the galleries by elevator.

Holy Redeemer Center
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
It doesn't look it from this side of the blg, but this hall in the Oakland, CA hills is wheelchair accessible. It's very affordable to rent as well. By Calif standards anyway. It is not typically used for weddings and the acoustic equipment is not great. We had some difficulties with it. There is also no air conditioning, which is not usu an issue but on our day it was almost 100 deg! Since is is the site of priests' residences, music cannot be played in the hall after 10 PM.

They do have a lift and her BM did go inside for a while. The lift only goes to the first floor though (main floor). It doesn't go upstairs (just bedrooms up there). So don't plan on a HM there if you or your FI is needs a wheelchair.
