Hello! My fiance and I are planning a wedding in the Santa Ynez Valley for sometime next summer and are looking for a casual, small, intimate outdoor vineyard wedding. We are on a bit of a tighter budget than the average central coast couple and are looking for a venue (for both the ceremony and reception) that is really affordable -- preferably under $3000.
We are in love with the vibe and size of Shoestring Winery (we got engaged here!), but they are not doing weddings this year (boo). We have also liked the potential of Doll Pond Vineyard and Garden, which is essentially a blank slate. We are also open to a private estate or home that has a lovely backyard for our big day.
Any ideas on similar venues in our price range? Thanks so much!
