Suggestions for small/intimate wedding

We are looking to tie the knot sometime next summer (July 2017, hopefully) and are hoping to find a decent yet affordable location to get married. We are a long distance couple finally closing the gap! We are not flashy people so it will be a small and intimate wedding (under 10 people). I'm wondering if anyone here has ever attended/had a wedding so small - if so, do you have any suggestions for locations? We are even thinking about doing it at the park. Probably would have to obtain permission and pay a small fee. Any suggestions and advice is greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Green Square Park next to the Cedar Rapids Library went through a remodel recently & it's beautiful. It would be a great venue for a small wedding. My husband & I got married on the roof of the downtown library, it's beautiful too!

Thank you for your suggestion! I will certainly look into it. Their facebook page doesn't appear to have too many decent photos atm but I will keep checking. If you can think of any other locations suitable for a small party, please do share! Thanks in advance :)

They were the best photos showing the facility (auditorium & rooftop).

You can Google Green Square Park Cedar Rapids to see architectural designs & recent images. I attached the 1 that looks the most like the final design. It turned out amazing & would be fabulous for a small venue assuming decent weather.

Really appreciate the photos! Beautiful wedding. It looks like you had a good time! How much did you pay for the venue, if you don't mind me asking?

Use of the auditorium, rooftop & prep room was around $700. It's probably cheaper if you only reserve 1 area. Green Square may be free since it's a public park.

Did you direct all inquiries via facebook when booking them? I can't seem to find a direct website to their venue. Will definitely show the fiancé this site, see what he thinks! Thank you!

First - CONGRATULATIONS!

I suggest Historic Baldwin Hall's One Room School House. It's small, intimate, and you can do everything - wedding and reception - all onsite. Tables, chairs and kitchen facilities are available. When it comes to renting, you you can do an hourly rental, but if you rent for the entire day, the tables, chairs and kitchen facilities are included.

This where we'll be getting married in July, so I'm a tad bit biased.

In my opinion, Embassy Suites by Hilton Arcadia Pasadena Area and Santa Anita Church could be the best wedding venues for you. I prefer to visit useful site so as to get legal reviews about writing sites. Actually, this choice depends upon what are your basic requirements.
