What's up everyone, we're Oscar and Kayla. Last December, we got engaged in Germany where kayla is from. I returned home here in SoCal as we did long distance for 6 months. She is now back and we are getting the ball rollin on venue search. We haven't struck lightning just yet which is why we are now reaching out to any and all communities of fellow believers. We have a date set for our wedding day slated to take place June 2nd of next year. However, we are still believing for a venue for under $1000 as per our budget (there is some wiggle room). Ideally, something outdoorsy and cute that can accommodate 150 our friends and family and where we can combine ceremony and reception. Many of our international friends will also be in town, which, if we can find a home with multiple rooms to rent out for a few days prior to the day of, that would be a bonus (winks all around). We're also having a few of our favorite restaurants cater the place either on the ground or via Food truck. (still undecided). We would bring all our own gear if need be (sound system, lights, chairs, stage, decor etc.). All we ask is for us to be able to use someones beautiful large backyard suitable for such an event and/or a venue that can accommodate these dates. If you know of anyone, or if you have access to such a place, we are believing and praying to work something out. If you could help us, we would be eternally grateful. Thanks so much Saddleback friends!! Look forward to hear any and all responses.

Hi Oscar! I was JUST talking someone that went to a friends wedding very recently, might even have been this week! She said it was a lovely wedding and a fantastic BOX lunch was served! She said there were about 30 people present, the wedding was held outside under a HUGE oak tree at , and I think she said, the Capistrano location, but will check and confirm. This couple were in their late 40's and wanted to have a nice wedding without spending thru the roof! I think it sounded like they got exactly want they wanted and the guest were impressed!
I'm not sure if you'd call the Ministry office in Lake Forest to ask about this venue, but it sounds like something you'd both be interested in!
Bless you and have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
I interned at this venue and helped with event planning. The owner Aaron is a great guy. It sounds like it may fit the vibe you are looking for, but it is in Anaheim.
