Look around a little more, and try to negotiate with the venue you like. Some venues are willing to work with you.

I would see if you can somehow cut back on something else…ie caterer or do some more DIY projects…or maybe even talk to your parents or something to see if anyone can contribute a little bit to your dream venue. Im not sure what your situation is with your budget..are you guys paying for it all yourself?

You’re getting A LOT with that venue.  Consider that you don’t have to hire a caterer, rent linens/tables/chairs/flatware, pay for hors d ouevres, wine, or a hotel room to get ready in.  That price actually sounds about right for what you’re getting.  I think you should go for it.  The best place to cut back would be floral centerpieces and decorations.  If you limit your flowers to just your bouquets and bouts, you’ll save enough to make up for the venue!
