Outdoor Wedding Reception Venues

I have been searching for 3 weeks for a wedding/reception venue for my daughter. We have almost given up. She would like an outdoor wedding, maybe a garden or historic setting. Perhaps, something like the Liriodendrun in Bel Air or Brookeside Gardens in Mont. CT. But, we want it cheaper! Any ideas? Is there anyone who knows of scenic property that we could rent? Thanks for any suggestions.

Have you looked into renting a cabin or gazebo in a state park? Here in PA we can rent a cabin in one of our state parks for less than $100.

Is it a small wedding? If so maybe you have a friend who has a gazebo or who would allow one to be built on their property in exchange for allowing a wedding on the property. Good luck.

I'm looking for an affordable outdoor venue or barn, farm, vineyard, or state park (that allows alcohol and amplified music) to rent for my wedding reception. We're trying to keep the location and catering under $5,000. Ideally, we'd like a venue that could accommodate more than 100 guests. However, we might be able to crop it down to 75 if we had to.


We're open to Maryland, Delaware, Washington DC, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey. We would love something near the water, but that may be pressing our luck. The month of the wedding is Sept, 2011, we're looking for a Saturday. Any suggestions are great. Please keep them affordable and in the states named though. Thanks.
