What to do if aproperty owner sets new “restrictions” 5 months after a wedding venue contract has been signed and a deposit sent?

My fiancee and I have spent weeks and weeks finding the right venue. Did our due diligence, negotiated terms, signed contract and sent half deposit. Now, 5 months later, the property owner is introducing restrictions that were never discussed nor covered in the rental agreement (disallowing the use of tent stakes, requiring approval of all vendors before hiring). Everything is documented in email conversation and the contract. We have spent months coordinating vendors for this place and even took the expense of flying to the location to scout vendors. They won’t budge, what recourse do I have?
