Taco truck/caterer w/ al pastor on a spit?

Ok, so my fiancee and I are in the very early stages of planning our wedding (just got engaged Fri!), and she is starting to get overwhelmed, and I figured I'd come to CH for help. We live in Chicago, but her family is all in CA (mostly Sonoma-ish) and a decent amount of our friends are in the Bay (we used to live in the Bay). We're thinking of possibly doing a wedding in the Bay Area since almost every Chicago venue has caterer restrictions, and it would cut down travel for a number of our guests. Anyways...

We want to have a taco stand at the reception with an al pastor spit (and ideally a taquero manning it). I've done some research (El Tonayense and El Ojo de Agua), but I've been out of the Bay for so long, that I wanted to get some direct help. Is there a taco truck/caterer/restaurant that does delicious al pastor from the spit? I remember the Bay lacking somewhat in the taco department... If we can't find one, our backup would be great BBQ.

Lastly, bonus points for a great venue with an outdoor space that allows outside catering - I've started to do the research (and like Sequioa Lodge and a couple other ebparks places, but fiancee nixed them saying they remind her of community centers where she did girl scouts) but figured I'd see if what we wanted food-wise was possible. (almost every wedding I've been to has had the same bland catered food and we want to avoid that - plus we love tacos!)
