@SoonToBeMrsRiley:  This too, shall pass.

The venue is probably the most stress filled choice you’ll make in the planning process, it’s expensive, it’s date sensitive, and you have to hunt very diligently to find one you love.  But you WILL find it, keep looking!

You’ll find something, trust me! I was the same way — all the venues around SF either had a minimum requirment for food and bev (which was outrageously high for a weekend.. as high as $30K just for food and bev!!), or a minimum headcount (usually 150+).  If we didn’t have meet these requirements, we were stuck with the same venue you just described. 

We finally ended up with a garden for a ceremony and reception venue.  No minimums of any kind — no guest count, no food and bev. It worked out well, the price was still a bit higher than I expected to pay, but that just meant slashing out the guest list a bit 😉 Bottom line, you’ll know the place when you find it. Trust me!
