Default Wedding reception ideas

You guys always seem to have bright ideas and good solutions, so Rich and I wanted to toss this question out there.

We're looking for a place for our wedding reception. We've booked a ceremony location; the wedding will take place in an historic church from the 1890s that's been moved to a "heritage park" in Lake Forest.

We COULD have the reception on the lawn there. But the wedding is at 11 am on September 2. The lawn area has no shade and a stable is just next door, so we think it might be a bit, um, fragrant on a hot summer day.

We considered having it at our home, but we don't want to be "hosts" in that way on our wedding day and we're not sure our deck would support the weight of the whole gathering. It's a long way down...

Our wedding will be small, about 50 people. We're not big drinkers, so we probably won't do a bar..maybe just a champagne toast. We're shooting for simple and dignified, since we've both been married before.

And we'd prefer to not have a 12K catering bill.
