    Just a thought? I went to a friend's wedding in a gallery space yesterday -- alot of their friends cook (though none of us are chefs, we just enjoy the whole dinner party thing on Friday nights), and they did an alternate registry, whereby we all signed up to bring a meat main (for 10), a vegetarian main, 3 bottles of wine, spirits and mixer, dessert, etc. Even though none of us knew what the others were bringing, the food was aMAZing -- best wedding food I ever had! Just gorgeous -- I have never seen such full plates. They did have staff to set everything up, provide plates and glasses, etc. but it was such a wonderful way to celebrate, and it really did contribute to making the wedding one of the most memorable I've ever been to.

      I went to a really nice wedding dinner at CHestnut in Carroll Gardens a couple years ago. They have a lovely dining room and a courtyard out back that made for a nice atmosphere.

        Try some of the spots in Red Hook, especially Fort Defiance. And you'll be right near the water for beautiful photos!

            I was going to suggest the same thing - my husband and I got married there last year. We loved it.

            I don't know if iCi in Fort Greene might work - it might be just a bit north of your budget. I wasn't impressed by the event planner there but a lot of people on the board have given that place good reviews.
