How about trying the Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Gardens in Claremont.
I'm djing a wedding there this coming weekend.
Wicked Sound and Light
The Double Tree Hotel-Claremont is a nice venue. They remodeled their court yard for an outdoor wedding. I was married 9/08 @ the double tree, ceremony and reception. Worth checking out since you need it to be in Claremont. I picked the double tree because I needed it to be in Claremont too and they were the only place that could accomodate 200+guests. My original spot was the Padua Theater/Padua Hills in Claremont which also allows an outdoor wedding and indoor reception. This location can't hold as many guest's. I hope this information helps. Good luck. :)
Thank u for the suggestions. ..
However, I'm on strict budget...need an outdoor venue in Claremont only for ceremony, budget is only. $1,000
Padua Hills Theatre?
