If you or someone you know has a large backyard, consider having your wedding there. Even if the backyard has an in the ground pool, you can still put flooring over it and having your wedding there.

Other seasonal options include local parks and arboretums, gazebos and bed and breakfasts that have gardens. You can have the ceremony outdoors in the garden or park, and the reception in a tent or inside a bed and breakfast or other location.
