I am planning on getting married next year, April 13th, 2013 to be exact. We are looking for a rustic type of wedding venue (something that goes with a victorian steam punk wedding). Does anyone have any ideas where I could possibly look?
Looking for northern California (not too far from SF), reasonably priced (nothing in the $10 grand range) and somewhere that might fit up to 200 guests for a reception (sitting). A lot of places are restrictive on the number 🙁

I think since your wedding is reasonably close, in wedding terms at least – venues book about 18 months in advance, you should just focus on venue capacity rather than theme. You can always decorate it later! Hotels are normally the best for high capacity especially if you want catering too; or convention/expo centres, those sorts of places – the ones that do corporate events rather than being “weddingy”. I can’t comment on the prices though.
I am not in San Francisco but maybe posting on the local boards would help?
Good luck and a big warm welcome to Weddingbee!
ETA: you might also need to be flexible with your date
