Ceremony Site West County & Photographer Needed

First I am having the hardest time trying to find a ceremony site that is not expensive, indoors, and more out West.  We are having a pastor marry us, so it cannot be in the Catholic church. 
Also, I am trying to find a good photographer that is not too expensive as well, but still does good work.  I feel like every photgrapher I have been referred to charges and arm and a leg. 
Any suggestions would be helpful.  I'm a bride on a budget, just trying to make things work!

    For photography, I would recommend Darin Hart of DearHeart Photography. He is a professional photographer who works for a studio in O'Fallon MO. However, he LOVES weddings and does about 70 a year on the side!! He only works through recommendations...I heard about him from my friend who is using him in a few weeks at her wedding and she heard about him and saw great photos from one of her friends!

    For us, he will come to the salon for the getting ready photos, for us the ceremony/reception site are the same, so he will stay there until he gets a few candids of everyone dancing! :) All for $900! He is giving us an 11x18 print as well. We get all proofs in an album and we get all images on a high-res DVD after we put in an order with him for any amount we want, so it could be pretty small.

    Here is his website: http://www.dearhartphoto.com/home/Home.html

    Hope this helps!!!

    Inexpensive is kind of subjective -- what kind of price points are we talking?

    Artisan Photography is in Ballwin and he is  just AWESOME.  He's not a budget photographer, but does great work and also has an assistant you can hire if you don't want to spend as much money.  You could also try AEphoto - they are in O'Fallon, IL but will travel, and they offer lower price packages starting at $950 with add ons available, so you can make your own package.
