But actually I think if we just did the restaurant it would be about $9520 w/o tax or tip. But we were also told we would have to hire a piano lady for the music. Not sure how much that would cost.
This sounds like a workable option. How many guests are included at that price? Would it include cake or any kind of dessert? I don't know if you have seen the dummy cakes, but they are foam layers decorated to match your cake and only the top layer is cut-able. Guests are then served from sheet cakes/regular cakes. It usually saves about 50%.
I like the idea of catering an event at the house, just beware of too many rentals. Tents with lighting can easily cost $5K and chivari chairs are usually about $10 each. (for 100 guests you are talking $1000! that's 10-20% of your budget!)
