My fiance and I are looking to have an outdoor fall wedding- November 2011.
We are outdoorsy/athletic people, but while we love the beaches of San Diego, our personalities are much more mountain-ish. We want a very cozy ceremony/reception (ideally at the same location) and really want to work traditional fall colors into the wedding (think orange, deep red, and yellow).
It will be a large wedding: we are inviting around 250 people, however only expect about 150 will actually attend. We have a tight budget, and obviously a lot to take into consideration with so many guests!!!
Any ideas/suggestions for an outdoor venue that would fit our personalities but won't break the bank? We would like to stay within reasonable distance of the airport and central San Diego. Most of our guests will be from out of town and will want to enjoy the touristy part of San Diego. Ideally, we do not want them traveling more than 45 minutes.
Thanks for the help!
