I don’t actually see any venues on that list that would fit your budget of 10k. The reception should be about 50% of your budget and those you have listed don’t fall under that. 

Not trying to be a downer, but I just had my wedding in NYC and everything is very expensive, as are the TAXES! The taxes kill you. 

I know people who have done an informal ceremony in CP up around 105th (the part you need a permit for to take pictures in – the name is escaping me!!) with a brunch following or a cocktail hour(s) if it’s from 3-5. That would probably fit nicely into your budget!!

 I do not know the cost but have you tried sunset terrace chelsea piers?  My stepsister was married on a Sunday there.  If you do not mind walking around a hockey rink, you will be rewarded with a river view for the ceremony and reception.

The Foundry in Long Island City you can rent the smaller space (The Greenhouse), it allows 120 for ceremony, dancing or cocktails and 75 people for a seated dinner. If you do want your ceremony / reception there you can always also rent the terrace for a cocktail hour while they flip the space. There is also the Albra Room http://www.thefoundry.info/thealbraroom/ that seats 70 people.

I don’t have rates for 2018 but for 2017 the Greenhouse is 2K, and the terrace is 1K. I don’t have rates for the Albra Room.

Look at The Metropolitan Building (also Long Island City). You can get a whole floor for about 6K, the price is discounted if you use their caterer.

The Green Building in Brooklyn (not sure if this is too big?)

There’s a place called Blend on the Water in LIC I have heard of. 

I tried searching on StyleMePretty for venues in Brooklyn and found a place in Williamsburg called Aurora.

Good luck! (Love your spreadsheet!)

daxsymbiote :  If you need an affordable caterer, feel free to message me. I know of a very good and affordable one located in the Bronx who can travel to your venue.
