We are looking to get married in the next year and are really looking for a venue to fit our budget and needs. We are only planning on having approximately 60-70 people so it does not have to be a huge place. I do prefer there being a patio... perhaps a garden area?? The biggest problem is I need it to be in close proximity to a garden area for photos and ceremony. I haven't found a lot of this in the GTA. Our budget for the meal and venue cannot be anything over $10K which sounds like very little but can get us a lot if we aren't dead set on a large hotel etc. I do not like any sort of banquet halls --- again, I would like it to have a nice outdoor area. Also it does not have to be in the GTA as long as it is not past Milton area on the West.
Does ANYONE know of a good affordable place we can try?? Please not all the general venues... I've seen them all --- Grand, Hart House, Patella Mansion, anything like this. I need some outside-the-box thinking.
