I’m from the Capital Region so maybe I can help. How far from Albany are you willing to travel? Would Saratoga/Lake Geroge be too far?

I think you’re going to have a hard time finding a venue in the area that fits your capacity needs for $5k. We spent a bit more than that on our venue (including catering) for only 75 people. While it wasn’t the cheapest option in the area, it was also far from the most expensive.

The Desmond is pricy. If I remember correctly, the cheapest option was right around what we paid for our wedding which was roughly $80 p/person (or $15k+ for your guest list). 

What kind if feel are you looking for? There are a few restaurants in the area that could probably work with a $5k budget and come close to meeting your capacity. It’s tough when you have such a large guest list and a somewhat limited budget.
